So i dont know anything about mining except the basics since i am using bitcoins for almost a year now.

My question is if there is a simple miner for windows and/or linux that you can simply run, put the info of your pool and mine. I dont care about giving me the 100% of my gpu. i just want lets say to mine 0.1 BTC. just for fun.

btw i have a ati gt525m video card

gt525m?
hahahha. don't bother. it will take forever (2+ weeks, 24/7) to mine 0.1 btc. might as well buy some.

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

I too use bitminter, and it is freaking awesome. pulling great hashrates off of windows machines, (2 5870s averaging 400 M/hashs, and 1 4950 averaging 100M/hashs)

Are you joking? Trolling?

It's a nvidia card, why you call it "ati"?

believe it or not, some people are not doing this for profit. I started out mining with cpu mining, and that got me more hooked on the concept of bitcoin, not on the concept of making coins to sell on markets.

nope. a little bit Catalyst overclocked and ram tuned down. no firmware upgrades, no fancy bells or whistles.
