Hey casascius

You mentioned you still solo right?  How much are you still able to make.  Are you close to the point where you will join a pool?

I have about 3.5k mhash and I'm in a pool right now.  Was wondering how viable it would be to solo.

I will probably never join a pool.  The difference is insignificant for me.  My miners just got a block within the last hour.  It's less frequent, but I still get blocks perhaps slightly better than every other day it seems.  Difficulty calculator says I should get a block every 31 hours at current difficulty (157426).

Companies claiming they got hacked and lost your coins sounds like fraud so perfect it could be called fashionable.  I never believe them.  If I ever experience the misfortune of a real intrusion, I declare I have been honest about the way I have managed the keys in Casascius Coins.  I maintain no ability to recover or reproduce the keys, not even under limitless duress or total intrusion.  Remember that trusting strangers with your coins without any recourse is, as a matter of principle, not a best practice.  Don't keep coins online. Use paper wallets instead.

How many Mhashes do you have?  Was it 8K? I think I remember that from the video.

Do you just let them solo all together? nothing fancy right?

Although at my rate I don't think I can actually solo effectively.

I'd be in the 60+ hours compared to you.. if what you have is 8K

Where do you get the current difficulties? also I am going to start up a farm already have 3 5870's! Gonna get a nice farm up and going but tbh I realize if I spend money on a farm I can sell the cards and come out even if it doesn't work out because its not like once you buy the hardware it becomes worthless :3 Thinking of getting a cheap p4 and a cheap p45 board and sticking 2 5970's in it!

MtGox is operated from Japan.

isn't it ironic that the biggest exchange of a crypto commodity that's created basically by massive electricity consumption is operated from a country plagued by the biggest nuclear meltdown in a power-plant known to mankind so far.

btw i liked your video : )
