  1. If you've been crunching for Boinc for some time now, like at least 6 months or more, then it makes sense to maintain your crunching for a better MAG, or RAC for when you do get the GRC you need for major staking. But if you've just started in Boinc, then it won't matter much which way you choose. The advantage of the pool is that you'll have the ability to generate a few coins every day pretty much, as you build up. I've been doing both for about 2 or 3 months now... I've not generated anything in my solo mining yet because I don't have enough GRC to stake much yet. But with the pool, I"m pulling in about 5 or 6 a week, which is not bad considering most of my crunching is going to the solo stuff.. More out of habit than anything else.. I've been crunching that way for almot 10 to 15 years.. heh hehe.. I gues part of it is, since their working, don't mess with em.. heh hehe... That's also a good way to squeeze a few more.. <: -) sounds to me like you're off to a good start... Remember, this is a Long Haul kind of thing.. so sit back and enjoy... L8 The Gray Wizard
  2. One more suggestion for you hc168. Keep your current crunching going, it'll help you with the solo mining when you get to it.. When you join the pool (It's the wisest idea in my opinion) Just add some grcpool crunching on top of your existing crunching. used different projects than what you're using now, and that cruching will go to the pool, and help you get coins through there while still maintaining your existing crunching... Hope that wasn't too confusing... feel free to ask any questions you have, and we'll do our best to get you going... <: -) Have fun, enjoy life... L8 The Gray Wizard (aka Matt)
  3. Good information, sounds about right... The only thing I would add to that is you can still continue the pool with one or two pool crunching projects to continue supporting the pool, and getting a few more gridcoin instead of zero, plus it helps support the pool for others. Just my take... L8
  4. If I'm not mistaken, That's the list of Donors to the GRC Pool. It amazes me that it's such a short list... <: -)
  5. That is awesome!!! I've gotta find out where I am in there.. hehehe
  6. Yeah, That makes the both of us... <: -)
  7. Wow... Those are some stats Additude!!! hmmm you make me want to go nuts building a rig now... How am I ever going to fit another project into the schedule.. hehehe.. I will find a way, rest assured.. L8
  8. Some Coins coming your way... From the team here.. <: -) Enjoy!!
  9. I Do believe you're Correct... In order to mine Gridcoin at all.. you have to be assigned to team gridcoin. Solo or Pool, That has to be the case... From what I understand, Solo Mining Vs Pool Mining... In theory you can usually make more Solo mining, If you have enough GRC to maintain a large stake. The problem can be solved by either throwing enough cash to Buy GRC for a large stake to make money right away. The Pool allows you to generate small amounts of GRC, without spending any Cash and you can build up your GRC until you have a large enough GRC Balance to make it worth while to stake on your own. Since it doesn't take much to mine for the Pool, And Solo I think it's more useful to do both... In my mind, since I've been running Boinc for many years I have alot of "credit" stored up for a high enough Mag to help cutdown the amount of time for a solo mining run that I can run projects for myself, with one or too for the pool. For me right now, my solomining will pay out in about 300 days.. don't know how much it'll be, but hey, it's greater than zero so it's all good... At my current rate, with my contributions to the Pool I'm generating about 5 grc a week... Again, it's not much, but it's greater than zero. As my weekly payouts get deposited to my wallet, my Stake grows, and the time for reward gets just a few days smaller... So to me.. Doing both helps me get to a better solo run faster than doing it alone, and with no cash outlay... Hope I didn't confuse anyone... heh hehe.. Oh, and one more thing folks... "Standing on Soap Box now" If you are using the Pool, please consider donating a percentage to the pool above the minimum. Heck even 1% is better than the minimum. The pool is helping you to get to your own stake much faster than you alone, so throw a little bit to the pool... It helps others, and when you're already generating something, it's not much from you. Makes the Pool work better, and we all benefit as GRC gains in value... Just my take on the deal.... L8 The Gray Wizard (aka: Matt)
  10. Hmmm I know it's dependant on how many GRC you're staking, as well as your RAC & Magnitude... For example, with me.. I've only got 132 GRC to stake...my Mag is about 6 right now.. (had a couple of machines die so rebuilding..) and when I hover over the green dot on the overview, it tells me 159 days before my first reward... Lookin by the message I get the impression that it's telling you that your earnings should come in 14 days... and it'll be 53.2 grc... That sounds pretty good.. Remember, this is not a get rich quick deal.. it takes time to get moving... I've been building up slowly for the last couple of months, hitting the faucets etc.. starting from zero.. so hang in there.. L8 The Gray Wizard (aka: Matt)
  11. Thanks for the information David... I looked at the list... Now I've only jumped into gridcoin maybe 2 or 3 months ago.. I was very supprised to see the 18GRC number ... Heck, at my current 3% Rate I should hit that next month.. It's supprising that more folks don't donate much more, considering how much their benefiting... Comeon people.. 1% is only 1 out of 100 GRC... That's nothing..yet it makes a huge difference to the pool and the good folks who run it so we can benefit.. Seems only fair.. If course, that's just my opinion.. heh hehe.. L8 The Gray Wizard (aka: Matt)
  12. Hang in there.. It's Volunteers who help with coins... give em a little time and we'll find you some... If you have any questions, or need any help, just ask here. I'd be happy to try to answer any questions you may have.. You might also try reading further back in the messages.. chances are the answer is already there.. <: -) Good luck in your crunching, and Welcome..
  13. What can I say, I'm a troubleshooter... <: -) In the immortal words of Igor from the Movie Van Helsing "It's Vat I do!" <: -)
  14. It's my understanding that it's just the wallet that's going to drop 32-bit support. Right now I have a bunch of very old computers still crunching for boinc... I hope they don't phase them out... They would lose a whole lot of crunching hehee.. The Gray Wizard
  15. As you can see, they live fine together and crunch normally. So you have work for GRCPool and yourself, and all is well with the world... The only quirk I ran into is that After your GRCPool projects are running. Make sure the Top Project is your own account, otherwise Gridcoin will see a Different CPID and will burp from time to time... As you can see in my list, after my grcpool projects were running, I added [email protected] (so it would be at the top of the list Alphabetically and it solved my Gridcoin Wallet issues. I know it sounds crazy, it took me a couple of weeks to figure this one out... hehe but just add a project under your own username and pw which will land on the list higher than your grcpool projects... Again, I think my explaination is not very clear, but if you have questions, you know how to reach me.. heheheh L8 The Gray Wizard (aka: Matt)
