    I read up on it when I first heard about it but never was successful in getting it to work. Don't have much interest in it these days.

    BTW, I approve of T'Pol as your wallpaper :good:

    I did it for a week or two. After seeing how long it would take to get a bitcoin to sell I stopped.

    I've been on a Voyager kick - watching only the good episodes on Netflix. I still occasionally fire up Bridge Commander and mod it like crazy. I'm gonna fire up Legacy when I get home :)

    I actually disapprove since she's partially blocked. Perhaps a re-post would change my opinion...

    I looked at mining in the past and figured out quickly that to make any real money you need to drop some big coins into your system and keep it running 24/7 with big power bills every month.

    If you have a high end AMD GPU like the 7970 ($375), you could in theory make $10 a day, and use not all that much in power provided you have a reasonable power bill.


    I got into mining 2 years ago, before the mining rush, and backed out soon after I started :(

    I was always a Jadzia (and then Ezri) fan, but T'Pol is no slouch to look at!

    So 1 coin is roughly how much? I don't really know much about it but I have seen a little bit. Im just wondering how viable it is to make any real cash over what your electric bill will increase.
