With the new found power some individuals have with FPGA and such, does it make sense to solo mine?
At what hash rate would you consider solo mining feasible?

I have 16GH expanding to 20GH and I see absolutely no reason to solo mine.  p2pool = solo mining w/ shared rewards.  If you don't want to use p2pool support a smaller pool.  Take Bitminter = ~150GH/s to 200 GH/s.  Even if you had 50 GH/s why not mine with 1/5th the variance.

When the only options were high fee hopper vulnerable pools solomining made more sense.  Today I just don't see a point.
