I have a few questions.
1) What is GH/s? on the pools list everyone lists that stat and i dont know if a higher one is better or not (usually is) so i picked slush's pool.

2) in the Mining program what is accepted and stale mean (in noob terms) or how many accepted turns to 1 bitcoin?

I have a DFI nForce4 SLI Infinity motherboard - am I able to chuck a couple of HD5830s in it and give mining a go?

So there's no problem running 2 AMD cards in this SLI board? I gather the idea is _not_ to run multiple cards in SLI/CF when mining, so hopefully all will be good...

Is this the first time it's decreased in recent history? When I first started mining, I thought the first difficulty decrease would be a sign that BTC was about to collapse completely. We'll see!

I am going to be a homeowner today, closing on a condo this afternoon. So I've been kinda out of the whole bitcoin scene last few weeks dealing with the purchase, although I do keep my main miners running. Going to do some cost-benefit analysis after I find out what my electricity rate is at the condo.

was it just the 'bitminer.exe' file? I think that's it anyhow...

I think it gets false positived because of it's inclusion in botnet/stealth mining packages. I'm pretty sure it's a legit file.

I don't know if anyone clicked the link in the article http://www.fbi.gov/charlotte/press-r...s-own-currency
It looks like he was physically making his own coins

bittcoin mining has only ever been profitable for people living in their parents' basements who have free electricity, and can stack 6950s till the air burns.
