NewEnglandcoin
Symbol: NENG
NewEnglandcoin is a clone of Bitcoin using scrypt as a proof-of-work algorithm with enhanced features to protect against 51% attack and decentralize on mining to allow diversified mining rigs across CPUs, GPUs, ASICs and Android phones.
Mining Algorithm: Scrypt with RandomSpike. RandomSpike is 3rd generation of Dynamic Difficulty (DynDiff) algorithm on top of scrypt.
1 minute block targets base difficulty reset: every 1440 blocks subsidy halves in 2.1m blocks (~ 2 to 4 years) 84,000,000,000 total maximum NENG 20000 NENG per block Pre-mine: 1% - reserved for dev fund ICO: None RPCPort: 6376 Port: 6377
NewEnglandcoin has dogecoin like supply at 84 billion maximum NENG. This huge supply insures that NENG is suitable for retail transactions and daily use. The inflation schedule of NengEnglandcoin is actually identical to that of Litecoin. Bitcoin and Litecoin are already proven to be great long term store of value. The Litecoin-like NENG inflation schedule will make NewEnglandcoin ideal for long term investment appreciation as the supply is limited and capped at a fixed number
Bitcoin Fork - Suitable for Home Hobbyists
NewEnglandcoin core wallet continues to maintain version tag of "Satoshi v0.8.7.5" because NewEnglandcoin is very much an exact clone of bitcoin plus some mining feature changes with DynDiff algorithm. NewEnglandcoin is very suitable as lite version of bitcoin for educational purpose on desktop mining, full node running and bitcoin programming using bitcoin-json APIs.
The NewEnglandcoin (NENG) mining algorithm original upgrade ideas were mainly designed for decentralization of mining rigs on scrypt, which is same algo as litecoin/dogecoin. The way it is going now is that NENG is very suitable for bitcoin/litecoin/dogecoin hobbyists who can not , will not spend huge money to run noisy ASIC/GPU mining equipments, but still want to mine NENG at home with quiet simple CPU/GPU or with a cheap ASIC like FutureBit Moonlander 2 USB or Apollo pod on solo mining setup to obtain very decent profitable results. NENG allows bitcoin litecoin hobbyists to experience full node running, solo mining, CPU/GPU/ASIC for a fun experience at home at cheap cost without breaking bank on equipment or electricity.

CPU Minable Coin Because of dynamic difficulty algorithm on top of scrypt, NewEnglandcoin is CPU Minable. Users can easily set up full node for mining at Home PC or Mac using our dedicated cheetah software.
Research on the first forked 50 blocks on v1.2.0 core confirmed that ASIC/GPU miners mined 66% of 50 blocks, CPU miners mined the remaining 34%.
NENG v1.4.0 release enabled CPU mining inside android phones.

Decentralization and Community Driven NewEnglandcoin is a decentralized coin just like bitcoin. There is no boss on NewEnglandcoin. Nobody nor the dev owns NENG.
We know a coin is worth nothing if there is no backing from community. Therefore, we as dev do not intend to make decision on this coin solely by ourselves. It is our expectation that NewEnglandcoin community will make majority of decisions on direction of this coin from now on. We as dev merely view our-self as coin creater and technical support of this coin while providing NENG a permanent home at ShorelineCrypto Exchange.

ASIC/GPU Mining Pools Warning to Big ASIC Miners Due to DynDiff Algo on top of Scrypt, solo mining is recommended for ASIC/GPU miners. Further more, even for mining pools, small mining pool will generate better performance than big NENG mining pool because of new algo v1.2.x post hard fork.
The set up configuration of NENG for scrypt pool mining is same as a typical normal scrypt coin. In other word, DynDiff on Scrypt algo is backward compatible with Scrypt algo. Because ASIC/GPU miners rely on CPU miners for smooth blockchain movement, checkout bottom of "Latest News" section for A WARNING to All ASIC miners before you decide to dump big ASIC hash rate into NENG mining.
(1) Original DynDiff Warning: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5027091.msg48324708#msg48324708 (2) New Warning on RandomSpike Spike difficulty (244k) introduced in RandomSpike served as roadblocks to instant mining and provide security against 51% attack risk. However, this spike difficulty like a roadblock that makes big ASIC mining less profitable. In case of spike block to be mined, the spike difficulty immediately serve as base difficulty, which will block GPU/ASIC miners effectively and leave CPU cheetah solo miners dominating mining almost 100% until next base difficulty reset.

Console gaming is hardly different from PC gaming, and much of what people say about PC gaming to put it above console gaming is often wrong.

I’m not sure about you, but for the past few years, I’ve been hearing people go on and on about PCs "superiority" to the console market. People cite various reasons why they believe gaming on a PC is “objectively” better than console gaming, often for reasons related to power, costs, ease-of-use, and freedom.
…Only problem: much of what they say is wrong.
There are many misconceptions being thrown about PC gaming vs Console gaming, that I believe need to be addressed. This isn’t about “PC gamers being wrong,” or “consoles being the best,” absolutely not. I just want to cut through some of the stuff people use to put down console gaming, and show that console gaming is incredibly similar to PC gaming. I mean, yes, this is someone who mainly games on console, but I also am getting a new PC that I will game on as well, not to mention the 30 PC games I already own and play. I’m not particularly partial to one over the other.
Now I will mainly be focusing on the PlayStation side of the consoles, because I know it best, but much of what I say will apply to Xbox as well. Just because I don’t point out many specific Xbox examples, doesn’t mean that they aren’t out there.

“PCs can use TVs and monitors.”

This one isn’t so much of a misconception as it is the implication of one, and overall just… confusing. This is in some articles and the pcmasterrace “why choose a PC” section, where they’re practically implying that consoles can’t do this. I mean, yes, as long as the ports of your PC match up with your screen(s) inputs, you could plug a PC into either… but you could do the same with a console, again, as long as the ports match up.
I’m guessing the idea here is that gaming monitors often use Displayport, as do most dedicated GPUs, and consoles are generally restricted to HDMI… But even so, monitors often have HDMI ports. In fact, PC Magazine has just released their list of the best gaming monitors of 2017, and every single one of them has an HDMI port. A PS4 can be plugged into these just as easily as a GTX 1080.
I mean, even if the monitoTV doesn’t have HDMI or AV to connect with your console, just use an adaptor. If you have a PC with ports that doesn’t match your monitoTV… use an adapter. I don’t know what the point of this argument is, but it’s made a worrying amount of times.

“On PC, you have a wide range of controller options, but on console you’re stuck with the standard controller."

Are you on PlayStation and wish you could use a specific type of controller that suits your favorite kind of gameplay? Despite what some may believe, you have just as many options as PC.
Want to play fighting games with a classic arcade-style board, featuring the buttons and joystick? Here you go!
Want to get serious about racing and get something more accurate and immersive than a controller? Got you covered.
Absolutely crazy about flying games and, like the racers, want something better than a controller? Enjoy!
Want Wii-style motion controls? Been around since the PS3. If you prefer the form factor of the Xbox One controller but you own a PS4, Hori’s got you covered. And of course, if keyboard and mouse it what keeps you on PC, there’s a PlayStation compatible solution for that. Want to use the keyboard and mouse that you already own? Where there’s a will, there’s a way.
Of course, these aren’t isolated examples, there are plenty of options for each of these kind of controllers. You don’t have to be on PC to enjoy alternate controllers.

“On PC you could use Steam Link to play anywhere in your house and share games with others.”

PS4 Remote play app on PC/Mac, PSTV, and PS Vita.
PS Family Sharing.
Using the same PSN account on multiple PS4s/Xbox Ones and PS3s/360s, or using multiple accounts on the same console.
In fact, if multiple users are on the same PS4, only one has to buy the game for both users to play it on that one PS4. On top of that, only one of them has to have PS Plus for both to play online (if the one with PS Plus registers the PS4 as their main system).
PS4 Share Play; if two people on separate PS4s want to play a game together that only one of them owns, they can join a Party and the owner of the game can have their friend play with them in the game.
Need I say more?

“Gaming is more expensive on console.”

Part one, the Software
This is one that I find… genuinely surprising. There’s been a few times I’ve mentioned that part of the reason I chose a PS4 is for budget gaming, only to told that “games are cheaper on Steam.” To be fair, there are a few games on PSN/XBL that are more expensive than they are on Steam, so I can see how someone could believe this… but apparently they forgot about disks.
Dirt Rally, a hardcore racing sim game that’s… still $60 on all 3 platforms digitally… even though its successor is out.
So does this mean you have to pay full retail for this racing experience? Nope, because disk prices.
Just Cause 3, an insane open-world experience that could essentially be summed up as “break stuff, screw physics.” And it’s a good example of where the Steam price is lower than PSN and XBL:
Not by much, but still cheaper on Steam, so cheaper on PC… Until you look at the disk prices.
See my point? Often times the game is cheaper on console because of the disk alternative that’s available for practically every console-available game. Even when the game is brand new.
Dirt 4 - Remember that Dirt Rally successor I mentioned?
Yes, you could either buy this relatively new game digitally for $60, or just pick up the disk for a discounted price. And again, this is for a game that came out 2 months ago, and even it’s predecessor’s digital cost is locked at $60. Of course, I’m not going to ignore the fact that Dirt 4 is currently (as of writing this) discounted on Steam, but on PSN it also happens to be discounted for about the same amount.
Part 2: the Subscription
Now… let’s not ignore the elephant in the room: PS Plus and Xbox Gold. Now these would be ignorable, if they weren’t required for online play (on the PlayStation side, it’s only required for PS4, but still). So yes, it’s still something that will be included in the cost of your PS4 or Xbox One/360, assuming you play online. Bummer, right?
Here’s the thing, although that’s the case, although you have to factor in this $60 cost with your console, you can make it balance out, at worst, and make it work out for you as a budget gamer, at best. As nice as it would be to not have to deal with the price if you don’t want to, it’s not like it’s a problem if you use it correctly.
Imagine going to a new restaurant. This restaurant has some meals that you can’t get anywhere else, and fair prices compared to competitors. Only problem: you have to pay a membership fee to have the sides. Now you can have the main course, sit down and enjoy your steak or pasta, but if you want to have a side to have a full meal, you have to pay an annual fee.
Sounds shitty, right? But here’s the thing: not only does this membership allow you to have sides with your meal, but it also allows you to eat two meals for free every month, and also gives you exclusive discounts for other meals, drinks, and desserts.
Let’s look at PS Plus for a minute: for $60 per year, you get:
  • 2 free PS4 games, every month
  • 2 free PS3 games, every month
  • 1 PS4/PS3 and Vita compatible game, and 1 Vita-only game, every month
  • Exclusive/Extended discounts, especially during the weekly/seasonal sales (though you don’t need PS Plus to get sales, PS Plus members get to enjoy the best sales)
  • access to online multiplayer
So yes, you’re paying extra because of that membership, but what you get with that deal pays for it and then some. In fact, let’s ignore the discounts for a minute: you get 24 free PS4 games, 24 free PS3 games, and 12 Vita only + 12 Vita compatible games, up to 72 free games every year. Even if you only one of these consoles, that’s still 24 free games a year. Sure, maybe you get games for the month that you don’t like, then just wait until next month.
In fact, let’s look at Just Cause 3 again. It was free for PS Plus members in August, which is a pretty big deal. Why is this significant? Because it’s, again, a $60 digital game. That means with this one download, you’ve balanced out your $60 annual fee. Meaning? Every free game after that is money saved, every discount after that is money saved. And this is a trend: every year, PS Plus will release a game that balances out the entire service cost, then another 23 more that will only add icing to that budget cake. Though, you could just count games as paying off PS Plus until you hit $60 in savings, but still.
All in all, PS Plus, and Xbox Gold which offers similar options, saves you money. On top of that, again, you don't need to have these to get discounts, but with these memberships, you get more discounts.
Now, I’ve seen a few Steam games go up for free for a week, but what about being free for an entire month? Not to mention that; even if you want to talk about Steam Summer Sales, what about the PSN summer sale, or again, disc sale discounts? Now a lot of research and math would be needed to see if every console gamer would save money compared to every Steam gamer for the same games, but at the very least? The costs will balance out, at worst.
Part 3, the Systems
  • Xbox and PS2: $299
  • Xbox 360 and PS3: $299 and $499, respectively
  • Xbox One and PS4: $499 and $399, respectively.
Rounded up a few dollars, that’s $1,000 - $1,300 in day-one consoles, just to keep up with the games! Crazy right? So called budget systems, such a rip-off.
Well, keep in mind that the generations here aren’t short.
The 6th generation, from the launch of the PS2 to the launch of the next generation consoles, lasted 5 years, 6 years based on the launch of the PS3 (though you could say it was 9 or 14, since the Xbox wasn’t discontinued until 2009, and the PS2 was supported all the way to 2014, a year after the PS4 was released). The 7th gen lasted 7 - 8 years, again depending on whether you count the launch of the Xbox 360 to PS3. The 8th gen so far has lasted 4 years. That’s 17 years that the console money is spread over. If you had a Netflix subscription for it’s original $8 monthly plan for that amount of time, that would be over $1,600 total.
And let’s be fair here, just like you could upgrade your PC hardware whenever you wanted, you didn’t have to get a console from launch. Let’s look at PlayStation again for example: In 2002, only two years after its release, the PS2 retail price was cut from $300 to $200. The PS3 Slim, released 3 years after the original, was $300, $100-$200 lower than the retail cost. The PS4? You could’ve either gotten the Uncharted bundle for $350, or one of the PS4 Slim bundles for $250. This all brings it down to $750 - $850, which again, is spread over a decade and a half. This isn’t even counting used consoles, sales, or the further price cuts that I didn’t mention.
Even if that still sounds like a lot of money to you, even if you’re laughing at the thought of buying new systems every several years, because your PC “is never obsolete,” tell me: how many parts have you changed out in your PC over the years? How many GPUs have you been through? CPUs? Motherboards? RAM sticks, monitors, keyboards, mice, CPU coolers, hard drives— that adds up. You don’t need to replace your entire system to spend a lot of money on hardware.
Even if you weren’t upgrading for the sake of upgrading, I’d be amazed if the hardware you’ve been pushing by gaming would last for about 1/3 of that 17 year period. Computer parts aren’t designed to last forever, and really won’t when you’re pushing them with intensive gaming for hours upon hours. Generally speaking, your components might last you 6-8 years, if you’ve got the high-end stuff. But let’s assume you bought a system 17 years ago that was a beast for it’s time, something so powerful, that even if it’s parts have degraded over time, it’s still going strong. Problem is: you will have to upgrade something eventually.
Even if you’ve managed to get this far into the gaming realm with the same 17 year old hardware, I’m betting you didn’t do it with a 17 year Operating System. How much did Windows 7 cost you? Or 8.1? Or 10? Oh, and don’t think you can skirt the cost by getting a pre-built system, the cost of Windows is embedded into the cost of the machine (why else would Microsoft allow their OS to go on so many machines).
Sure, Windows 10 was a free upgrade for a year, but that’s only half of it’s lifetime— You can’t get it for free now, and not for the past year. On top of that, the free period was an upgrade; you had to pay for 7 or 8 first anyway.
Point is, as much as one would like to say that they didn’t need to buy a new system every so often for the sake of gaming, that doesn’t mean they haven’t been paying for hardware, and even if they’ve only been PC gaming recently, you’ll be spending money on hardware soon enough.

“PC is leading the VR—“

Let me stop you right there.
If you add together the total number of Oculus Rifts and HTC Vives sold to this day, and threw in another 100,000 just for the sake of it, that number would still be under the number of PSVR headsets sold.
Why could this possibly be? Well, for a simple reason: affordability. The systems needed to run the PC headsets costs $800+, and the headsets are $500 - $600, when discounted. PSVR on the other hand costs $450 for the full bundle (headset, camera, and move controllers, with a demo disc thrown in), and can be played on either a $250 - $300 console, or a $400 console, the latter recommended. Even if you want to say that the Vive and Rift are more refined, a full PSVR set, system and all, could cost just over $100 more than a Vive headset alone.
If anything, PC isn’t leading the VR gaming market, the PS4 is. It’s the system bringing VR to the most consumers, showing them what the future of gaming could look like. Not to mention that as the PlayStation line grows more powerful (4.2 TFLOP PS4 Pro, 10 TFLOP “PS5…”), it won’t be long until the PlayStation line can use the same VR games as PC.
Either way, this shows that there is a console equivalent to the PC VR options. Sure, there are some games you'd only be able to play on PC, but there are also some games you'd only be able to play on PSVR.
…Though to be fair, if we’re talking about VR in general, these headsets don’t even hold a candle to, surprisingly, Gear VR.

“If it wasn’t for consoles holding devs back, then they would be able to make higher quality games.”

This one is based on the idea that because of how “low spec” consoles are, that when a developer has to take them in mind, then they can’t design the game to be nearly as good as it would be otherwise. I mean, have you ever seen the minimum specs for games on Steam?
GTA V
  • CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz (4 CPUs) / AMD Phenom 9850 Quad-Core Processor (4 CPUs) @ 2.5GHz
  • Memory: 4 GB RAM
  • GPU: NVIDIA 9800 GT 1GB / AMD HD 4870 1GB (DX 10, 10.1, 11)
Just Cause 3
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-2500k, 3.3GHz / AMD Phenom II X6 1075T 3GHz
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 (2GB) / AMD Radeon HD 7870 (2GB)
Fallout 4
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-2300 2.8 GHz/AMD Phenom II X4 945 3.0 GHz or equivalent
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • GPU: NVIDIA GTX 550 Ti 2GB/AMD Radeon HD 7870 2GB or equivalent
Overwatch
  • CPU: Intel Core i3 or AMD Phenom™ X3 8650
  • Memory: 4 GB RAM
  • GPU: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 460, ATI Radeon™ HD 4850, or Intel® HD Graphics 4400
Witcher 3
  • Processor: Intel CPU Core i5-2500K 3.3GHz / AMD CPU Phenom II X4 940
  • Memory: 6 GB RAM
  • Graphics: Nvidia GPU GeForce GTX 660 / AMD GPU Radeon HD 7870
Actually, bump up all the memory requirements to 8 GBs, and those are some decent specs, relatively speaking. And keep in mind these are the minimum specs to even open the games. It’s almost as if the devs didn’t worry about console specs when making a PC version of the game, because this version of the game isn’t on console. Or maybe even that the consoles aren’t holding the games back that much because they’re not that weak. Just a hypothesis.
But I mean, the devs are still ooobviously having to take weak consoles into mind right? They could make their games sooo much more powerful if they were PC only, right? Right?
No. Not even close.
iRacing
  • CPU: Intel Core i3, i5, i7 or better or AMD Bulldozer or better
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • GPU: NVidia GeForce 2xx series or better, 1GB+ dedicated video memory / AMD 5xxx series or better, 1GB+ dedicated video memory
Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds
  • CPU: Intel Core i3-4340 / AMD FX-6300
  • Memory: 6 GB RAM
  • GPU: nVidia GeForce GTX 660 2GB / AMD Radeon HD 7850 2GB
These are PC only games. That’s right, no consoles to hold them back, they don’t have to worry about whether an Xbox One could handle it. Yet, they don’t require anything more than the Multiplatform games.
Subnautica
  • CPU: Intel Haswell 2 cores / 4 threads @ 2.5Ghz or equivalent
  • Memory: 4GB
  • GPU: Intel HD 4600 or equivalent - This includes most GPUs scoring greater than 950pts in the 3DMark Fire Strike benchmark
Rust
  • CPU: 2 ghz
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • DirectX: Version 11 (they don’t even list a GPU)
So what’s the deal? Theoretically, if developers don’t have to worry about console specs, then why aren’t they going all-out and making games that no console could even dream of supporting?
Low-end PCs.
What, did you think people only game on Steam if they spent at least $500 on gaming hardware? Not all PC gamers have gaming-PC specs, and if devs close their games out to players who don’t have the strongest of PCs, then they’d be losing out on a pretty sizable chunk of their potential buyers.
Saying “devs having to deal with consoles is holding gaming back” is like saying “racing teams having to deal with Ford is holding GT racing back.” A: racing teams don’t have to deal with Ford if they don’t want to, which is probably why many of them don’t, and B: even though Ford doesn’t make the fastest cars overall, they still manage to make cars that are awesome on their own, they don’t even need to be compared to anything else to know that they make good cars.
I want to go back to that previous point though, developers having to deal with low-end PCs, because it’s integral to the next point:

“PCs are more powerful, gaming on PC provides a better experience.”

This one isn’t so much of a misconception as it is… misleading.
Did you know that according to the Steam Hardware & Software Survey (July 2017) , the percentage of Steam gamers who use a GPU that's less powerful than that of a PS4 Slim’s GPU is well over 50%? Things get dismal when compared to the PS4 Pro (Or Xbox One X). On top of that, the percentage of PC gamers who own a Nvidia 10 series card is about 20% (about 15% for the 1060, 1080 and 1070 owners).
Now to be fair, the large majority of gamers have CPUs with considerably high clock speeds, which is the main factor in CPU gaming performance. But, the number of Steam gamers with as much RAM or more than a PS4 or Xbox One is less than 50%, which can really bottleneck what those CPUs can handle.
These numbers are hardly better than they were in 2013, all things considered. Sure, a PS3/360 weeps in the face of even a $400 PC, but in this day in age, consoles have definitely caught up.
Sure, we could mention the fact that even 1% of Steam accounts represents over 1 million accounts, but that doesn’t really matter compared to the 10s of millions of 8th gen consoles sold; looking at it that way, sure the number of Nvidia 10 series owners is over 20 million, but that ignores the fact that there are over 5 times more 8th gen consoles sold than that.
Basically, even though PCs run on a spectrum, saying they're more powerful “on average” is actually wrong. Sure, they have the potential for being more powerful, but most of the time, people aren’t willing to pay the premium to reach those extra bits of performance.
Now why is this important? What matters are the people who spent the premium cost for premium parts, right? Because of the previous point: PCs don’t have some ubiquitous quality over the consoles, developers will always have to keep low-end PCs in mind, because not even half of all PC players can afford the good stuff, and you have to look at the top quarter of Steam players before you get to PS4-Pro-level specs. If every Steam player were to get a PS4 Pro, it would be an upgrade for over 60% of them, and 70% of them would be getting an upgrade with the Xbox One X.
Sure, you could still make the argument that when you pay more for PC parts, you get a better experience than you could with a console. We can argue all day about budget PCs, but a console can’t match up to a $1,000 PC build. It’s the same as paying more for car parts, in the end you get a better car. However, there is a certain problem with that…

“You pay a little more for a PC, you get much more quality.”

The idea here is that the more you pay for PC parts, the performance increases at a faster rate than the price does. Problem: that’s not how technology works. Paying twice as much doesn’t get you twice the quality the majority of the time.
For example, let’s look at graphics cards, specifically the GeForce 10 series cards, starting with the GTX 1050.
  • 1.8 TFLOP
  • 1.35 GHz base clock
  • 2 GB VRAM
  • $110
This is our reference, our basis of comparison. Any percentages will be based on the 1050’s specs.
Now let’s look at the GTX 1050 Ti, the 1050’s older brother.
  • 2.1 TFLOP
  • 1.29 GHz base clock
  • 4 GB VRAM
  • $140 retail
This is pretty good. You only increase the price by about 27%, and you get an 11% increase in floating point speed and a 100% increase (double) in VRAM. Sure you get a slightly lower base clock, but the rest definitely makes up for it. In fact, according to GPU boss, the Ti managed 66 fps, or a 22% increase in frame rate for Battlefield 4, and a 54% increase in mHash/second in bitcoin mining. The cost increase is worth it, for the most part.
But let’s get to the real meat of it; what happens when we double our budget? Surely we should see a massive increase performance, I bet some of you are willing to bet that twice the cost means more than twice the performance.
The closest price comparison for double the cost is the GTX 1060 (3 GB), so let’s get a look at that.
  • 3.0 TFLOP
  • 1.5 GHz base clock
  • 3 GB VRAM
  • $200 retail
Well… not substantial, I’d say. About a 50% increase in floating point speed, an 11% increase in base clock speed, and a 1GB decrease in VRAM. For [almost] doubling the price, you don’t get much.
Well surely raw specs don’t tell the full story, right? Well, let’s look at some real wold comparisons. Once again, according to GPU Boss, there’s a 138% increase in hashes/second for bitcoin mining, and at 99 fps, an 83% frame rate increase in Battlefield 4. Well, then, raw specs does not tell the whole story!
Here’s another one, the 1060’s big brother… or, well, slightly-more-developed twin.
  • 3.9 TFLOP
  • 1.5 GHz base clock
  • 6 GB VRAM
  • $250 retail
Seems reasonable, another $50 for a decent jump in power and double the memory! But, as we’ve learned, we shouldn’t look at the specs for the full story.
I did do a GPU Boss comparison, but for the BF4 frame rate, I had to look at Tom’s Hardware (sorry miners, GPU boss didn’t cover the mHash/sec spec either). What’s the verdict? Well, pretty good, I’d say. With 97 FPS, a 79% increase over the 1050— wait. 97? That seems too low… I mean, the 3GB version got 99.
Well, let’s see what Tech Power Up has to say...
94.3 fps. 74% increase. Huh.
Alright alright, maybe that was just a dud. We can gloss over that I guess. Ok, one more, but let’s go for the big fish: the GTX 1080.
  • 9.0 TFLOP
  • 1.6 GHz base clock
  • 8 GB VRAM
  • $500 retail
That jump in floating point speed definitely has to be something, and 4 times the VRAM? Sure it’s 5 times the price, but as we saw, raw power doesn’t always tell the full story. GPU Boss returns to give us the run down, how do these cards compare in the real world?
Well… a 222% (over three-fold) increase in mHash speed, and a 218% increase in FPS for Battlefield 4. That’s right, for 5 times the cost, you get 3 times the performance. Truly, the raw specs don’t tell the full story.
You increase the cost by 27%, you increase frame rate in our example game by 22%. You increase the cost by 83%, you increase the frame rate by 83%. Sounds good, but if you increase the cost by 129%, and you get a 79% (-50% cost/power increase) increase in frame rate. You increase it by 358%, and you increase the frame rate by 218% (-140% cost/power increase). That’s not paying “more for much more power,” that’s a steep drop-off after the third cheapest option.
In fact, did you know that you have to get to the 1060 (6GB) before you could compare the GTX line to a PS4 Pro? Not to mention that at $250, the price of a 1060 (6GB) you could get an entire PS4 Slim bundle, or that you have to get to the 1070 before you beat the Xbox One X.
On another note, let’s look at a PS4 Slim…
  • 1.84 TFLOP
  • 800 MHz base clock
  • 8 GB VRAM
  • $300 retail
…Versus a PS4 Pro.
  • 4.2 TFLOP
  • 911 MHz base clock
  • 8 GB VRAM
  • $400 retail
128% increase in floating point speed, 13% increase in clock speed, for a 25% difference in cost. Unfortunately there is no Battlefield 4 comparison to make, but in BF1, the frame rate is doubled (30 fps to 60) and the textures are taken to 11. For what that looks like, I’ll leave it up to this bloke. Not to even mention that you can even get the texture buffs in 4K. Just like how you get a decent increase in performance based on price for the lower-cost GPUs, the same applies here.
It’s even worse when you look at the CPU for a gaming PC. The more money you spend, again, the less of a benefit you get per dollar. Hardware Unboxed covers this in a video comparing different levels of Intel CPUs. One thing to note is that the highest i7 option (6700K) in this video was almost always within 10 FPS (though for a few games, 15 FPS) of a certain CPU in that list for just about all of the games.
…That CPU was the lowest i3 (6100) option. The lowest i3 was $117 and the highest i7 was $339, a 189% price difference for what was, on average, a 30% or less difference in frame rate. Even the lowest Pentium option (G4400, $63) was often able to keep up with the i7.
The CPU and GPU are usually the most expensive and power-consuming parts of a build, which is why I focused on them (other than the fact that they’re the two most important parts of a gaming PC, outside of RAM). With both, this “pay more to get much more performance” idea is pretty much the inverse of the truth.

“The console giants are bad for game developers, Steam doesn't treat developers as bad as Microsoft or especially Sony.”

Now one thing you might’ve heard is that the PS3 was incredibly difficult for developers to make games for, which for some, fueled the idea that console hardware is difficult too develop on compared to PC… but this ignores a very basic idea that we’ve already touched on: if the devs don’t want to make the game compatible with a system, they don’t have to. In fact, this is why Left 4 Dead and other Valve games aren’t on PS3, because they didn’t want to work with it’s hardware, calling it “too complex.” This didn’t stop the game from selling well over 10 million units worldwide. If anything, this was a problem for the PS3, not the dev team.
This also ignores that games like LittleBigPlanet, Grand Theft Auto IV, and Metal Gear Solid 4 all came out in the same year as Left 4 Dead (2008) on PS3. Apparently, plenty of other dev teams didn’t have much of a problem with the PS3’s hardware, or at the very least, they got used to it soon enough.
On top of that, when developing the 8th gen consoles, both Sony and Microsoft sought to use CPUs that were easier for developers, which included making decisions that considered apps for the consoles’ usage for more than gaming. On top of that, using their single-chip proprietary CPUs is cheaper and more energy efficient than buying pre-made CPUs and boards, which is far better of a reason for using them than some conspiracy about Sony and MS trying to make devs' lives harder.
Now, console exclusives are apparently a point of contention: it’s often said that exclusive can cause developers to go bankrupt. However, exclusivity doesn’t have to be a bad thing for the developer. For example, when Media Molecule had to pitch their game to a publisher (Sony, coincidentally), they didn’t end up being tied into something detrimental to them.
Their initial funding lasted for 6 months. From then, Sony offered additional funding, in exchange for Console Exclusivity. This may sound concerning to some, but the game ended up going on to sell almost 6 million units worldwide and launched Media Molecule into the gaming limelight. Sony later bought the development studio, but 1: this was in 2010, two years after LittleBigPlanet’s release, and 2: Media Molecule seem pretty happy about it to this day. If anything, signing up with Sony was one of the best things they could’ve done, in their opinion.
Does this sound like a company that has it out for developers? There are plenty of examples that people will use to put Valve in a good light, but even Sony is comparatively good to developers.

“There are more PC gamers.”

The total number of active PC gamers on Steam has surpassed 120 million, which is impressive, especially considering that this number is double that of 2013’s figure (65 million). But the number of monthly active users on Xbox Live and PSN? About 120 million (1, 2) total. EDIT: You could argue that this isn't an apples-to-apples comparison, sure, so if you want to, say, compare the monthly number of Steam users to console? Steam has about half of what consoles do, at 67 million.
Now, back to the 65 million total user figure for Steam, the best I could find for reference for PlayStation's number was an article giving the number of registered PSN accounts in 2013, 150 million. In a similar 4-year period (2009 - 2013), the number of registered PSN accounts didn’t double, it sextupled, or increased by 6 fold. Considering how the PS4 is already at 2/3 of the number of sales the PS3 had, even though it’s currently 3 years younger than its predecessor, I’m sure this trend is at least generally consistent.
For example, let’s look at DOOM 2016, an awesome faced-paced shooting title with graphics galore… Of course, on a single platform, it sold best on PC/Steam. 2.36 million Steam sales, 2.05 million PS4 sales, 1.01 million Xbox One sales.
But keep in mind… when you add the consoles sales together, you get over 3 million sales on the 8th gen systems. Meaning: this game was best sold on console. In fact, the Steam sales have only recently surpassed the PS4 sales. By the way VG charts only shows sales for physical copies of the games, so the number of PS4 and Xbox sales, when digital sales are included, are even higher than 3 million.
This isn’t uncommon, by the way.
Even with the games were the PC sales are higher than either of the consoles, there generally are more console sales total. But, to be fair, this isn’t anything new. The number of PC gamers hasn’t dominated the market, the percentages have always been about this much. PC can end up being the largest single platform for games, but consoles usually sell more copies total.
EDIT: There were other examples but... Reddit has a 40,000-character limit.

"Modding is only on PC."

Xbox One is already working on it, and Bethesda is helping with that.
PS4 isn't far behind either. You could argue that these are what would be the beta stages of modding, but that just means modding on consoles will only grow.

What’s the Point?

This isn’t to say that there’s anything wrong with PC gaming, and this isn’t to exalt consoles. I’m not here to be the hipster defending the little guy, nor to be the one to try to put down someone/thing out of spite. This is about showing that PCs and consoles are overall pretty similar because there isn’t much dividing them, and that there isn’t anything wrong with being a console gamer. There isn’t some chasm separating consoles and PCs, at the end of the day they’re both computers that are (generally) designed for gaming. This about unity as gamers, to try to show that there shouldn’t be a massive divide just because of the computer system you game on. I want gamers to be in an environment where specs don't separate us; whether you got a $250 PS4 Slim or just built a $2,500 gaming PC, we’re here to game and should be able to have healthy interactions regardless of your platform.
I’m well aware that this isn’t going to fix… much, but this needs to be said: there isn’t a huge divide between the PC and consoles, they’re far more similar than people think. There are upsides and downsides that one has that the other doesn’t on both sides. There’s so much more I could touch on, like how you could use SSDs or 3.5 inch hard drives with both, or that even though PC part prices go down over time, so do consoles, but I just wanted to touch on the main points people try to use to needlessly separate the two kinds of systems (looking at you PCMR) and correct them, to get the point across.
I thank anyone who takes the time to read all of this, and especially anyone who doesn’t take what I say out of context. I also want to note that, again, this isn’tanti-PC gamer.” If it were up to me, everyone would be a hybrid gamer.
Cheers.

Sr.System Admin Mining Bitcoin

I'm a system admin of four months. Just really starting to get settled with a new company. I come to work this morning and notice that the Sr.System Admin is logged in on my machine. No biggie, I can't think of any reason why he needed to be on my computer, but he was. I noticed my resolution had changed pretty significantly. No biggie. I made some changes to my settings and the resolution didn't change. Odd I thought, so I took a look at my GPU drivers. Ah, they were updated on a day when I was offsite. I then look at the list of programs that were installed on my computer...A new catalyst update...ok UTorrent...Wut? Easy Miner... HE WAS MINING BITCOIN ON MY COMPUTER!? I told my boss and he simply talked to me in a hushed voice and told me that I piqued his curiosity when I was talking about it the other day... My mind was blown. This is a red flag in so many ways. I'm a new system admin and I'm completely shocked right now. I'm considering my next course of action. Help me here reddit.
UPDATE***
So I spoke with the HR representative and asked for company policy handbook or documentation. She said they didn't have any and that I should ask my boss, as there was nothing in writing. I also noticed that my antivirus was completely turned off and has been since Monday. It sucks because this is my first sysadmin job. However, this can't be tolerated. I believe I will start looking for another job:(

History (extracted from Discord)
A History of Actinium (Written by Harris Brakmić, aka brakmic)
I think I should write a few words about the project, it's beginnings, the whole idea and how it came to existence. I really want this project to succeed and I am ready to do anything & everything to make it a success. Will write a stream of consciousness.... let's begin...
It was a few weeks ago when I decided to leave my last crypto project. The decision had nothing to do with this project as at this time I wasn't even sure if I am going to stay in crypto at all. Also, the people from the former project were really nice to me (good, professional colleagues) So, it had nothing to do with this project, but it was important because without me departing it, Actinium wouldn't be here. So, one thing relates to other, (in)directly. However, a few days after my departure became "public" (I've silently left the project to avoid any negative spikes in the markets).
This was due to my role there. My part was the development of their latest security feature (again, not important for this project, but indirectly it makes clear that I came from "somewhere" without a big bang) So, after it became public a few guys who also had been members of this project but have left some time earlier (and they were also developing another coin in secret as I would later find out) approached me. It was just a friendly talk, like: "hey bro, you left the project", "what happened" so we talked and talked and then they offered me to join their project which was (and I think mostly still is) and unfinished idea, some kind of Bitcoin but with Equihash.
They explained it to me that they wanted to keep ASICS out because of "centralization". However, I found this idea bad from different angles. first, Bitcoin's code is state of the art. If you are going to change Bitcoin, well, either you are really good (I AM NOT!) or you are an impostor. or simply batshit crazy.
However, the other developer in the team wanted to change the code this way. Other guys were not developers but simply GPU-miners...well, you understand now why "Equihash". So, we agreed that I will wait for the other coding colleague to finish his work. And it took some time, a few weeks or so. and he still wasn't even able to boot the system, to create a genesis block. And you surely know that we, coders, are people who HATE to sit around and doing nothing.
So I started in parallel a shitcoin and now comes the interesting part... When I came to this team, I advertised the idea to build a coin with a strong focus on the future, ... payment channels, instant payments, off-chain solutions, the Lightning Network however, my ideas were, well, not very "welcome". The other colleague dismissed them, and the other guys who were not coders, didn't follow my idea and as I already said, I had to wait for the colleague to create a genesis block (and also to import the Equihash algorithm from Bitcoin Gold into Bitcoin...how gruesome!)
Actually, the idea with Bitcoin Gold was mine, because he wasn't sure where he could get Equihash from so I sad, half as a joke, hey take Bitcoin Gold, this is a cool scamcoin well, I should have kept my mouth shut! anyway...I remained in this group, patiently waiting and also developing my shitcoin they even created a separate channel called "SHT Talk" where I could present this coin (and not spam their other channels lol) and then, when everything was set up I wanted to mine blocks... but I didn't want to be only miner I am a coder, not a miner and maybe this is a shitcoin, but it should be mined honestly so, I had to beg those people to sacrifice one or two of their many GPUs to mine a worthless coin... it took me a few days to bring them to let some of the cards run...and I understand that...they do this for a living and I am only some random coder with a shitcoin project I don't think I'd behave differently however, after some time they started to mine this (still worthless) coin and being a true coin I decided to make the ANN on Buttcoin if there is a community where you SHOULD NOT announce a coin then I think Buttcoin would be the 1st place so, I wrote a proper announcement, posted it there.... and them people started writing: hey, it's like DOGE.
This is the moment when I realized that people give value to everything even if you decide to create a shitcoin, name it shitcoin, and announce it on Buttcoin, people will still be more powerful than you and think otherwise it doesn't mater what I think the only thing that matters is the community! so, after a few hours of upvoting, the Buttcoin admins realized that there is "something going on" and removed my post from the top this happens when certain people think they're more powerful than many people centralization! well, I decided to keep this coin alive... I was begging my former colleagues even more to use their GPUs but it was of course really hard to persuade them also, some problems inside the team came to the surface the other colleague had some problems with the code, also some personal issues I think...
I don't know the exact details I was mostly a "guest" there, actually had no real influence at one point their "manager" offered me to take over their project, because they were not very happy with the current progress but I refused, because backstabbing is a shitty behavior it didn't matter to me that the coding colleague never liked me personally, but I'd never take his position I decided to play with (at this time) Shitcoin DeLuxe so, I setup a mining pool (first time in my life) a small explorer bought some servers (currently we have 8 servers for everything...mining, explorer, faucet, basic nodes etc.) and then, at some point in time...I think maybe 10 days ago or so... the guys from the other project asked me to come to the chat... also the coding colleague was there... and he still had problems to create a Genesis Block however, he was full of plans what I have to do in future... like: you should write test, setup testing servers etc.
Basically, the housekeeping work well, nothing against testing, as I really like to test my code... but, if you are unable to bootstrap a blockchain, then there isn't much to be tested :sweat_smile: I said it this way, directly into the crowd and then they went silent I am really for friendship, tolerance, respect but if I bite you, you can be sure I will do it so fiercely that you will remember me I also announced that I will rather keep the Shitcoin DeLuxe alive than do housekeeping for a project that still doesn't exist as a real blockchain.
I may have only created a Shitcoin, but there is at least a chain, some miners, some servers, and I am a coder who writes actual code well, after a day or so my access to their chat was revoked... without any information just like that ....soooo....this is it.... what else should I say.... look, dear people... I am mostly working from home...only on Wednesdays I am in the company I get every day a few "remote work" offers... I could take them, my boss wouldn't even notice... such offers usually pay 80-100$/hour I am a professional coder, I do this for a living...
If I wanted money I would really not need blockchain, or Shitcoin DeLuxe please, don't take me wrong... blockchains can generate lots of money And I applaud every miner, investor, and user who manages to get rich out of this or any other coin but you are NOT coders it's YOUR business not mine we, coders, have OUR ways of getting "enough" money for us just like lawyers, scientists, or any other people do if I want more money I simply answer to some of those pesky head hunters... "give me 100/$ hour, keep your mouth shut, will deliver webpage in 3 weeks, here my bank account" this is the coder's way of getting money. I don't have to premine coins, fool people I could have stayed with the other project easily but I didn't want to be there I felt responsibility towards the people here money is important, but we are not only our damn money I think we are more, so, ok, I think I have talked long enough.
I hope I could clarify some things about this coin, how it came into existence, what my motives were.

Why Garlicoin is the Best Cryptocurrency: A Research Paper

https://pastebin.com/k47N0YGz
On December 25th, 2017, Reddit user DigitalizedOrange made history. He made a post titled, “If this post gets 30,000 upvotes, I will make a garlic bread cryptocurrency called garlicoin” and quickly surpassed it by about 16,000 upvotes. He and his team assembled and got to work. On January 21st, 2018, at 2PM EST, Garlicoin released. Garlicoin soon became an extremely promising coin in the market due to committed team, not to mention the community that surrounds Garlicoin.
One of the main reasons Garlicoin (GRLC) is the best cryptocurrency is its ability to welcome new people. Garlicoin is ASIC resistant, which means that it has a low-entry barrier to new members. Anyone can mine it and turn a profit. The welcoming community is another large reason that Garlicoin is superior. The subreddit /Garlicoin is friendly to newcomers and will offer advice and mining help to those who need it. /GarlicMarket, the 2nd subreddit based around Garlicoin, allows its users to create posts telling the community what they are willing to trade in exchange for Garlicoin or buying goods or services with the cryptocurrency. The official website for Garlicoin (garlicoin.io) just may be the most beginner friendly aspect of Garlicoin. Garlicoin.io guides people through the process of mining, setting up a wallet, and more.
Garlicoin’s fundamentals on which it was based upon is a leg up compared to other cryptocurrencies. Garlicoin’s block times are 40 seconds long, Bitcoin’s block time is 10 minutes long, sluggish compared to Garlicoin. Garlicoin also has cheap and fast transactions. Sending Garlicoin takes just a few confirmations which is about 2 minutes while sending Bitcoin takes around 15x longer, at 30 minutes. The dev team also puts the community before the coin. They make sure that everyone supporting Garlicoin is happy with the way to coin is going and even went as far as setting up a website giving away free Garlicoin, which soon failed due to the sheer amount of people that wanted in on the coin. Not letting failure get the best of them, the giveaway still went on at a later date. Garlicoin is open source, so you know just what is happening behind the scenes. This allows for full transparency over the project and an extra layer of safety. Another coin could come along and if it wasn’t open source, who knows what they could be doing your hardware? Because it is open source, you are easily able to dive into the work of the developers and learn about more about cryptocurrency.
Garlicoin is also extremely secure. The blockchain technology it uses makes it nearly impossible to run a brute-force attack with the level of wallet encryption. Not to mention the often looked-over aspect of security, vampire-proofing. It currently is unknown how many vampires have a holding in Bitcoin, Ethereum, or other cryptocurrencies. With Garlicoin, there are no vampires. The vampire sympathizers may think that not having vampires is a bad thing, but a proven 99.99% of vampire sympathizers are vampires in disguise. Many sympathizer accounts have been under names such as “Human Smith”, “Blood Bag”, and “Not A Vampire”. What vampire wants a crypto named after garlic? That’s like a human wanting a crypto named after malaria. Garlicoin is named after garlic bread, who wouldn’t want that? Garlic bread is the reason people wake up in the morning, the reason they are motivated, the reason people live. Who knows how cruel this world would be without the crispy, buttery goodness that is garlic bread.
Let’s be realistic for a second, Garlicoin has great potential. By 2023, Garlicoin will be used as worldwide currency. Near-instant transactions with a crypto that will be used everywhere. It’s only a matter of time until the coin moons, so hop on the train while it’s still low. Garlicoin has a limited supply of 69 (nice) million, if everyone on Earth has equal GRLC, then everyone gets 0.008625 GRLC. With such high demand and low supply, it is estimated that 1 Garlicoin will be worth $420,690. If you stock up on Garlicoin right now, at $1.40, the coin will increase by a rise of 30049185.71% in just a few years. You’d be either a fool or a vampire to not sell everything you have, cash out all other cryptos and stocks, and invest all of your life savings into Garlicoin.
The last point that proves Garlicoin’s superiority is the fact that you can get some right now. You can easily mine on your GPU, CPU, mother’s car, and just about everything else. You’ll probably have a bit of fun too, because you’ll be earning hella cash and supporting the world’s best food. You can easily gain Garlic even if you don’t have anything. Head over to /GarlicMarket and tell them that you’ll do some wacky thing for Garlic. They’ll probably give it to you. I wrote this whole thing for 2 GRLC, I drew a dinosaur made entirely out of penises for a Garlic. Someday it might be worth hundreds, it might not be worth anything. It’ll probably be millions if we’re being realistic.
I sincerely hope that you will or are in possession of Garlicoin. It will benefit you, puppies, and society. There is no downside to the coin of the gods. Buy some. Buy some or else I won’t be able to feed my kids. I get paid in Garlicoin and if people don’t buy, the price goes down. My boss pays me in only Garlicoin due to my fear of bank tellers. One time I walked into a bank and I was shooed away like the filth I am. That was the first and last time I step foot in a bank. I don’t know what I’ll do if Garlicoin crashes. I won’t have anything. I was talking about me when I said that people wake up in the morning only for garlic bread. I’ll die. Buy Garlic.
Tl;Dr: Buy it
Donate some Garlic to me if you want. You do you. I’ll leave this here though: GYiH5vpEcYWttXFZvBBDbmujKwqF79CjCx
I’ll take anything, here’s RaiBlocks/Nano address: xrb_34pmustseb4dbbqecmhgokfpyyomfot6kz7bs7rh14o5w7he781m6k1gx1th
I guess I’ll take Litecoin if you really want to: LaziAfvCrWFadpqbz7pjuyhZvgVVTKa7gG
If you’re still reading you know how desperate I am, Ethereum: 0x5d865501355360FfB1e1d8fE48E5E3C133Ad30E2
Ok, I feel like I’m plugging my addresses too much, I’ll stop.

Guys; We need your CPU Power. Please help me make it fun!

edit: Make an account on worldcommunitygrid.org and join team Pcmasterrace! Then just download the client and the rest is self-explanatory
Hey, I'm one of the many "scientists" working on crazy-large simulations of systems, most of which focus on protein folding but there's all sorts of other neat stuff with it.
A lot of people relate donated cpu power to Bitcoin mining minus the profits. First of all, no, second of all, we don't have the luxury of GPU Acceleration. The support for GPUs is minimal and through my experience only offers a 2x boost; honestly hardly worth the heat.
These simulations take well over a week and a half to complete on the cluster (supercomputer; if you wanna get excited).
My specific team is working on Alzheimer's but I know for a fact the same Software and equations need to be solved for Cancer and HIV projects.
I CAN CONFIRM FIRST-HANDTHIS STUFF MAKES A HUGE FUCKING DIFFERENCE. And there's ways to make it competitive with team leaderboards for donations (ranked worldwide, I'm thinking PCMasterRace could do some damage.)
Is there any chance the community would be willing to start a team on worldcommunitygrid? I was thinking weekly winners could get free steam games from other brothers or something along the lines of that?
edit2: you can set cpu usage to 1% even if you wanted to; preferences is very full-fleshed
edit3: the member count is going up!! you guys are the best! Keep signing up! I can't wait to tell my boss about this.
edit4: WCG is doing an update on the stats so you might not be able to join the team for a few minutes but you can still get yourself going and we can still see that contribution :)

My Consulting Rate Schedule || Why you can't have nice things and be ungrateful

My new home, if you want free advice, subscribe.

https://www.reddit.com/EthMiningClub/

My background:
My Rates - I'll scale by age, makes sense to me
Note: If I don't like you, for whatever reason at this point, there is a 10 Eth / Hour Asshole surcharge
These prices are completely arbitrary that I just pulled out of my ass, pay them , don't pay them, I don't care. If anyone PMs me in regards to help going forward, they will just get a link to this post.
What you get: * 1 hr phone and / or video conference call. Ask me how my day was, ask me technical question - your choice * 15m free phone / video call follow up
You can pay me for my time & experience or you can spend 300 dicking around with your own rigs yourself (Like I did) - I really don't care either way. I just wanted to post this here so I don't need to retype this 10 times a day when people ask me for help from this sub.
Cheers.
-Epic
Edit: Just if you can't Math ( as lots of people here can't ) EVERY 1/mhs you LOSE because your rig is not optimized Equates to .5 Eth / Month LOSS. Do the math on what you are losing. Here - 20/mhs loss = 10 Eth / Month * $8.25 ( Current Rate ) = $82.5. If Eth goes to $20 that is $200 per month on coins you lost ONLY because you did not apply the right settings for your cards. This should make my "fee" look cheap in comparison if you're running multiple cards. And if Eth goes to $1,000 in a few years like Bitcoin did, you will have some serious regrets.

Note: "My rates peak as high as 128MH/s.. so my average will probably be in the 115MH/s range. When I try the local/global-work code and/or setting the allocation percentage higher than 95%, I get errors. Can't remember what specifically.. something about failing to grab DAG info in one big chunk and 'bailing'."

"Hey thank you for the help on etherminer. I finally got the 6-GPU rig up and running. Windows turned out to be more of a headache than Ubuntu so I went back to Linux and figured it out. As per your suggestion I am on ethermine.org using qtminer. (I'm actually offline at the moment, but everything is operational) I used the default qtminer code that tells all of the GPUs to work but it's not entirely clear what is happening. Each GPU appears to be working on the same 'problem'. Is that accurate? As opposed to having each GPU work more independently on a separate problem..? I set the GPU workload to 93%.. Fans to 90%.. everything running cool at ~50c The results of most of the mining calculations appear to get grouped and uploaded to the pool as some sort of 'piece of the puzzle'. Every so often there is a 'solution' with a 'nonce'. How does that relate to getting an ETH reward? Also, how does the affect getting paid so long as the same address is used? I referenced a tutorial and accidentally used .rig1 to initialize qtminer - instead of the name of my computer (I still used my wallet address). I don't understand how all of this impacts getting paid or what my options are for tweaking the configuration. I'll sort it out either way but any additional insight is appreciated. ..single Ether sent as a token of gratitude... https://etherscan.io/tx/0x9782d0cfb5f98cf086e879cc510fd45968aef3a9798ee4281b475bc569eb5c11 (Tx ID was posted) Cheers"

Today was a good day for doge, explanation and a help request inside....

Hey all,
Some of you know this and some of you do not, as of yet. But, I'm trying to speak about doge and crypto / digital currency in general in my business. I work as a senior manager in a large company that is heavily invested in science and technology. Today I got to present some ideas about crypto currency being a part of our business to my boss. The things I spoke to him about were concerning mining technology (specifically; selling it as part of our business), and also Bitcoin, Litecoin and Dogecoin for transactions.
At some point it will hopefully be okay for me to talk more specifically about where I work, but what I can assure you is that if things go the way I hope (and to be honest, there's a very slim chance), Dogecoin will be available for a payment method in a business bigger than any other business that accepts crypto currency. I am sure that it wouldn't be exclusively dogecoin for many reasons, more likely to be Bitcoin as a primary and then LTC and Dogecoin because it's easy to set up and offer all three. Make no mistakes, I'm plugging Dogecoin like no other.
Since I had already sent a preview of some of the things I was talking about to my boss, he already forwarded the information on as a "Hey guys, anyone know what TiredRightNowALot is talking about?". I was received fairly well, and is being researched by "the right people".
In the end of this he told me that on Tuesday I get to sit down with the president of the company and present my ideas; more specifically on the involvement we could have with mining hardware; but the payment aspect is very much a part of my spiel.
After reading all of this (and hopefully it wasn't boring), I have something that I would like some Shibes to help me with... I have very little time to dedicate to this as I work a lot and also have some children to contend with, and a girlfriend who needs some attention also :)
I need some help getting some facts together; things like the sales revenue of companies selling GPU miners, ASIC miners and things like that. I have already sent some figures in my original contact to get some attention. Something that perhaps shows me the potential revenue on a very large scale.
Also, when companies sign up for digital payment, what type of media exposure would we be looking at? Again, I've already compiled some information around this, but it will make a difference to be accurate, this is a big part of my approach with digital payments being integrated.
I've spoken with moolah_ briefly about the potential of integrating in to our systems (very high level chat, nothing specific), but that will be the payment vendor that I will be mentioning 24/7 should this go through.
I want to be very honest with everyone; the odds of this going through right now are slim. But, the best thing I can think of right now is getting this on the radar of some very influential people. We are a global company with a huge reach in North America, I've made a decent case that this is going to be a part of our future no matter what we do; we can either be first to the party, or last...
Any help would be greatly appreciated, but make no mistakes, I will do whatever I have to do in order to make this a good meeting with impact. That's what I do ;)
TL;DR: Presented doge to my boss, have a sit down with some important folks next week to talk more. Could be good, could be nothing.
