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?

High Volume and/or High Risk Credit Card Processing.

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.
