Alright, so I'm back into this.

 

For those that don't know, I used to mine bitcoin back when it was literally worthless, and then swapped to Folding@Home because it got my name on a leaderboard and fuck money. Bonus, you can see the exact date I decided to quit my last job. http://folding.stanf...ats/team/216624

 

Now bitcoin is worth some astronomical amount, there are other currencies that are worth mining (sort of) I have free electricity, lots of old hardware, and I think it's a fun hobby. 

 

I'll make another thread soon about what I'm running, profit tracking, installing miners, that sort of thing. This thread is mostly just for the discussion of crypto in general.

 

Also, if I make a site, say spleenmining.com that uses a web browser miner, how many public computers do you guys think you could open it on for me?

Arin joked about Dogecoin on an episode of Grumps. Did that skyrocket recently?

500% increase is nothing to scoff at


First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me-- and there was no one left to speak for me.

I'm kind of pissed off with crypto currency miners atm.

 

Those cunts have destroyed the video card market.

 

Glad I won't be the one dealing with the consequences when the tax man comes knocking.
