Pebble watch!


Well, after waiting for nearly a year, I finally got my pebble watch yesterday. I’ve been playing with it and have a few issues with it, but most of them are due to apple restrictions. I’ve installed a few tweaks to take care of them and hopefully it works well. Still, I’m very happy to finally be able to use it. It’s weird having my wrist buzz when i get a text but it should mean I don’t miss a message on accident.

Bitcoin mining

Well, I’ve started bitcoin mining. This is going to be interesting. I’ve started running some dual GPU miners and multi CPU miners on some of my machines. I’ve almost got 1 bit coin. Bit coins are currently trading at 1 for US$250. While I expect the price to fall again, I can just wait and see if it goes back up but keep mining in the interim. I don’t expect to be a millionaire or anything, but this is an interesting experiment. I’m doing pooled mining so it isn’t a lucrative as solo mining, but it does allow for more coins gained overall.
