    Yeah, it's not the most reliable project. A heatwave has started here, so I will not be firing the cards up again for a while I'm still going strong on GPUgrid of course

    wish i was able to get 2 670s but i needed the cash for 2 hand wired AC 30 amps and to have them modded .
    this time of the year music pays my bills , gpugrid can wait till the end of the fall then i can help out.

    good luck in quest for a cure,

    It's definitely a challenge to fully understand bitcoin. Understanding the technology of the platform is difficult enough; grasping the mechanics of the larger bitcoin ecosystem is (frankly) beyond the ability of most. While I believe the bitcoin "experiment" has already failed, plenty of people smarter than me think it's worth ongoing effort - even without the profit motive.

    As far as D@H is concerned, I can't argue with their results. Through their efforts (and the mining resources of their volunteers), they've substantially achieved their goal of funding a graduate research associate (PhD candidate) through the operation of their mining pool.

    Can't help but begrudgingly give 'em a



    (now excuse me while I go figure out why my WCG/GPUGRID output dropped to ZERO when I was away)



    EDIT: bad switch in the garage (prolly couldn't handle the heat) on my end + serverlockolypse @WCG. Did get GPUGRID goin agin

    we are not going to produce new updates for donate@home for now.

    Reason being that it is likely that gpus will become soon too slow to mine for bitcoins replaced by new ASIC processors.
    something about bitcoins halving in value or someting soon, check out the news section on the donateathome site

    Ok i'll run it for now till I decide something else for my GPU's. Could put my GTX670 on GPUGrid I suppose.

    Do you guys use a separate GUI miner program for this or the BOINC application?

    I'm just curious what current GUI miner programs people are using for mining BitCoints.
    Desktop rigs:
    Oysterhead- Intel i5-2320 CPU@3.0Ghz, Zalman 9500AT2, 8Gb Patriot 1333Mhz DDR3 RAM, 120Gb Kingston V200+ SSD, 1Tb Seagate HD, Linux Mint 17 Cinnamon 64 bit, LG 330W PSU

    Flying Frog Brigade-Intel Xeon W3520@2.66Ghz, 6Gb Hynix 1066Mhz DDR3 RAM, 640Gb Hitachi HD, 512Mb GDDR5 AMD HD4870, Mac OSX 10.6.8/Linux Mint 14 Cinnamon dual boot

    Laptop:
    Colonel Claypool-Intel T6600 Core 2 Duo, 4Gb 1066Mhz DDR3 RAM, 1Gb GDDR3 Nvidia 230M,240Gb Edge SATA6 SSD, Windows 7 Home 64 bit

    using Donate@Home through BOINC mines for bitcoins for the GPUGrid project and is not for personal mining. Any bitcoins you find are not yours to keep but go straight to the D@H/GPUGrid project. In fact you won't even see any bitcoins AFAIK.

    So, donate@home is officially stopped. Just realised it today Not sure what to do with my 7850 rig?

    Adding to this is the advent of ASICs for bitcoin crunching. These chips are way more power efficient than GPUs and so it makes no sense to keep crunching on GPUs.

    The results of ASICs is that when we started the network power was around 8. Tera hashes/s. Yesterday was 110. This also mean that in the past few months we could not solve any block.

    I'll be away for the next month, but as soon as I get back we will be reporting on what we have done and what we plan to do. Most likely stop it and re-purpose it.

    For now, I would like to thank everybody who participated and wait for the reporting in 1 month.

    XS has a presence on all of these projects
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Space: Einstein or Milkway (milkyway gets better points)
    Math: PrimeGrid
    Cracking: Distributed Rainbow Tables (password cracking)
    POEM - huge point bio project - sometimes difficult to get tasks

    I actually discovered a pulsar J1755-33 in Einstein in Nov. 2012 so I think I will go between Einstein/POEM/Milkyway. Really interested in astronomy/physics these days. Got my framed certificate of discovery from the university in Germany!
