We are all well aware that it is not profitable to do so and is less productive than banging one's head against the wall, however hobbyism and enthusiasm has made me do it last summer, and I considered it multiple times for the heck of it. Leaving one out of 8 GPUs bitcoin mining isn't much of a loss anyway.

Even when you are mining for fun, why don't you GPU mine scrypt altcoins?

I have not gpu mined bitcoin since early 2011 it would be a waste of energy unless theirs some  mining pools with merged coins and has some special mining that makes it profitable to mine. I prefer to use x11 and other new algos for gpu mining now as BTC mining you need over 14TH of power to generate 1 BTC per day and every 2 weeks that's going up. So gpu mining on btc is a waste of time effort and energy used.

GPU and CPU is the past I don't think It will ever be profitable again. Best solution right now is ASIC's.
