Having made the somewhat dubious purchase NO REFUND NO ROI KNC Titan 300mh scrypt miner
and finding out after electricity at 15c/kwh is taken out of such I make about $22 a day

I had a Eureka! Moment

I can easily MINE all the crap I have in the ATTIC on Ebay and get $22 bucks a day after postage

(you have an attic for 40 years you find you have now a collectible treasure trove)

So ATTIC MINING is probably the next best thing to cover your dubious miner purchases of 2014

(cardboard boxes extra)

Then WHEN I get all the crap sold out of the ATTIC and turn it into a REC ROOM ....it likely in this
area would increase (at least on paper) my net worth of my house easily by the $10,131.80 I spent
(in error) on this NO REFUND NO ROI Titan (pick your own personal dubious miner choice here BFL, KNC
Black Arrow, Alpha etc....common you KNOW we all have screwed up some equip order?

all humor aside.....the truth is doing the above and the rec room plan above is a win/win at the
very least I cover some of my losses on this beastie...get an attic cleaned out and get a rec
room....invite people over ..get a life...stay away from internet/bitcoin etc

anyway its true I can prob go as long as the Titan runs selling stuff for $22 bucks out of my attic
...probably longer......just needed being stupid as a kick in the pants

(the stuff people do with rationalizations to compensate for stupid purchases...)

rationalizations make the world go around "the big chill"

We buy stuff, then buy a big house to keep and protect our stuff, then we pay to protect and maintain our house.

Not something people can do with kids but I got rid of all of my stuff and downsized to the point of being able to put everything I own into a carry on and a backpack. It is very liberating.

Thats great, but hardest part is, you must catalogue all this little thigns, put them on ebay (write description, select delivery options etc) and hope someone will buy something
Its a lot of time invested and little gain (22$)

Only positive, you got cleaner house ; )

I wish the classified section here was better structured. Needs more categories. I'm annoyed bitmit closed, been looking at cryptothrift, but they have "issues" at the moment, and it's one of those turning points where if they leave it any longer it will just stagnate and die off. Then eBay just plain sucks these days. Open Bazaar don't seem ready for prime time.... oh yeah, guess I should mention I have a buncha stuff that I keep meaning to sell also.

However, attic mining, I am thinking of doing, nice and cool up there at the moment, not sure if it will give me ice dam problems in a month or two though.

this is true...i was too lazy to do this to BUY the no roi no refund knc titan (see 1st post)

 I know somehow that I'm probably gonna only if I'm really lucky (with biz
equip 25% towards taxes due after 100% (20% a year for 5 yrs) allowed as computer equipment depreciation) maybe just maybe i will only lose 1/2 my $$$
I paid for this beast with that and what I can mine with it before it becomes a space heater/doorstop

so boy am I motivated now!

it is pain in the ass but then again I am in a lot of pain about this dubious Titan knc order.....so it is a fair fight

yes scrambling for pennies from junk as an old fart I should die with and go for pennies at the estate auction....fine old fart I'm gonna be

(hey anything to salvage the ego..on the plus side I have two rare BOOK replicas of game of thrones swords from www.valeriansteel.com
before the HBO series took off...there is an easy 2k profit)

yippee!!!!              now more motivated in my attic mining....(then again the rest of my stuff may be junk....then again the Titan miner is kinda junk
gee symmetry the circle of getting screwed in the asic universe....

(note to self: resist temptation to fall on Game of Thrones sword....would be hard to get 1k for such doing so....) (ok its a bad joke but I do have the sword)
