I'm a bit miffed because I've decided to experiment with BitBlocks, and I think that needs a scrypt miner. I might try with the small computer that I revived, but I don't think I can change the graphics in that.

I dont know what bitblocks are but scrypt miners are a dime a dozen you can get one with a psu for real cheap right now.

Thanks for the suggestion, but I've just discovered that BitBlocks has disabled PoW, and they only allow PoS. I need to do a bit more reading, and it may be better to run a masternode - it's fairly cheap at the moment. I used the faucet to test my wallet, and to see how fast a transfer was. I'm impressed with that bit, but the faucet is not a way to pick up coins. I made half a dozen claims, and I think it has only given me about a penny.

In the near future when the blockchain achieves skynet level sentience we can hope that someone, somewhere, can pull out enough old miners to save us all.  Grin

Until that happens they probably have more value as scrap. Although the bare board USB miners were at least neat looking.

I still have several of the cubes I first bought on here back when I was a miner. I especially liked the way Block Erupters fit together.
