Recently I read an article on the BBC News that more and more places are accepting Bitcoins.
It seems to be a thing of the future, so naturally, I gave it a spin.
This will be a very basic walkthrough of my proceedings, I'll write up more information in a later post.
The miner I decided to use was guiminer, a simple but effective multi-mining tool with a graphical user interface.
There are many other mining programs out there for you to choose from.
After registering with a pool and getting a wallet I started it up:
Not too bad, considering I hadn't optimised it completely yet
After going through numerous forum threads and guides I found some flags that helped. A bit.
I've left it running for just under 15 hours now, this is how much I've made so far.
As you can see, not really that profitable at the moment.
EDIT: I'm changing to another pool that has less fees.
