What?

I've stopped scrypt mining and switched to x11 since it's cooler and uses less electricity.

I haevn't read much into it, but he was telling me at work that they have a scrypt-n pool now, port 3332, and it was really profitable yesterday. Is x11 profitable? What coin are you mining?

I'm mining Darkcoin right now. It's more profitable than Doge. The price Doge is, I'm better off buying it.

The electricity cost alone is worth switching since I pay $0.13/KW.

I'd rather convert it all to BTC at this point if I'm mining. Call it dollar cost averaging

Yes but you do realise that ScriptN is about 1/2 of what Scrypt is?

.006/MH/BTC is = 0.003/MH/BTC, which is considered average.

.006BTC is .006BTC. As long as the payouts are the same who gives a sh!t what algorithm it used? You're talking about hash rates, not payouts. Scrypt-N HASHES at about 60% of regular scrypt.

I'll go ahead and update since I got the terraminer.

Got it set up and running on March 12, didn't have any problems at first. Now it gets too hot to run the rig (one core fails and the computer hashes at half speed when it gets too hot) most of the time, so I've only been running it at night. I've made 9.35 BTC since I got it. Would be more if I could run it 24:7

Anyone buy anything with BTC yet?

I've purchased multiple flights, random stuff off of overstock, and my mining equipment.

Anyways, it's back down to around 31% now.

Agreed, this is way overblown.
