This is the first Valentine’s day I am celebrating with K as husband and wife. I am very lucky to have her, and knowing that she is reading this, I just want to say that you are my person and I love you very much!
PiMAME is coming together. I am psyched to have a full weekend to just spend working on it.
The era of cpu/gpu mining scrypt based alt coins may be ending soon. The first scrypt capable ASICs are hitting the market. I recently purchased the DualMiner USB BTC/LTC miner. Even though it says litecoin, it can mine any scrypt coin, which is what Dogecoin is based on.
It was $113 shipped from California, and performs 70khs at around 3 watts. My r9 270 produced 350khs at ~150 watts and cost $200, and my Core i5 Haswell produced 79khs, cost $199, and uses ~100 watts.
I’m excited and nervous about the next generation of ASIC miners.
Have a good weekend all!
