A Month of Cryptomining (Part 1) Setting up NiceHash

Originally this was going to be a single post about how I mined for a month, what, if any, profits I made and finally any conclusions I had. As I got to writing everything up and went through the whole process I found that one post was not going to cover everything. Therefore, I have split it up into 3, this first post will be about getting setup, the second post is about what to do with the coins you mine and the third post will cover all the conclusions that I came to.

One of my son’s is really into racing games on his PC, so when we upgraded all the PC’s at the end of last year he chose to get a wheel and pedal set and a cheaper graphics card with his budget. After some research and also the fact we found a decent deal on Amazon Warehouse we picked up a Logitech G920 set for him. He is really enjoying using them, however, only being 11 his legs aren’t as strong as an adults, and these pedals have a “non-linear” feature for the brake pedal, which is basically a bit of rubber that has been added to the spring to try and simulate the feel of a real pedal.

Backing Up User Config Files to Git

Paul Kelly

What is the problem we are trying to solve I have a bunch of customisations that I make to various things when I am working in a Linux Environment, bash aliases, taskwarrior config etc. It would be nice to not have to remember what all these changes are each time I setup a new machine. So it would be nice to be able to pull down a copy of the configs I want and use them on a fresh machine to get up and running quickly.
