Bitcoin Mining to Heat my office in Winter

Bitcoin Mining to Heat my office in Winter

Nov 14, 2014 by Paul White

After upgrading my graphics card ealier in the year, I gave up on bitcoin mining.  Not because the returns were quickly dropping as the Hive's Hashing power continued to increase, but because of the amount of heat a monster video card creates.  That combined with a hot texas summer, and a home office that does not have a dedicated AC unit, instead its central air, caused me to prefer comfort over Mining.  But with it now being mid November and temperatures dropping in Texas,  I had a new reason to Start Mining again.  To Keep my office warm and cozy.

Are USB ASIC miners still worth it?

Are USB ASIC miners still worth it?

Dec 8, 2013 by Paul White

Months ago my ego told me to buy 20 USB ASIC miners, and start mining for bitcoin, but I instead restrained myself from this purchase.  Now looking back I regret not going ahead with my mining operation, as Bitcoin now hovers around $765 each.  At the time I was consideirng this, Bitcoin was around $82 each. But the question still remains.  Is it too late to get into the Bitcoin mining game?

31256961 Bitcoin Difficulty takes Wind out of Network Sails

Jul 22, 2013 by Paul White

For a brief moment in time, the Network's Hashing power was getting close to 280 Thps.  Bitcoin had its biweekly reset of the difficulty level.  From the looks of it, this has eliminated any profitability of smaller scale GPU based mining operations.

GPU miners vs USB ASIC Miners for Bitcoin

GPU miners vs USB ASIC Miners for Bitcoin

Jul 17, 2013 by Paul White

When you first start getting into the bitcoin mining business, you have two choices to make.  Should I build a GPU based system with several graphics cards, or should I just buy a bunch of USB ASIC Block Erupters?  The Answer lies in how commited you want to be to mining bitcoin, and how much faith you have in this crypto currency.

Spring Valley Home for Sale

Dec 21, 2008 by Paul White

Spring Valley Texas Home for saleEven though real estate in Houston tends to be on the cheap side.  There are a few neighborhoods that are turning into the Texas version of Malibu.  Spring Branch and Spring Valley off I-10 are two of these areas.  I was driving through there the other day, and I was amazed by how these communities were being transformed.  Land values in the area alone will go for $350K and up.   Some people are just fixing up the original 1950's homes, others are ripping them down and building custom million dollar estates. I noticed this beautiful Spring Valley home for sale on the corner of Bingle and Westview currently for sale.  What is great about the homes in Spring Valley is the high number of million dollar homes.  I give it 5 years before you won't be able to get a home in this area for under a million dollars.  At $407K this one is a steal.  You have to see all the photos to appreciate it.
