I'm surprised this hasn't piqued the interest of anyone here, using high end GPU's to mine blocks, after all each block is "worth" about $5000.

There's Bitcoins in them there GPU's!!!

Yee ha!!

As it gets harder to mine them, the price will surely rise!

I'm a Bitcoin billionaire in the making!

It's got all the geek ingredients.

High end cryptography, homebrew number crunching rigs, money making, hacking and security, somewhat shady....

Just for a bit of fun I started mining them a year ago. I mentioned Bitcoin on this forum and there was no interest at the time. It is only after publicity that people show interest

Left wing controlled BBC are calling for Bitcoin miners to be imprisoned.
