Yeah it can be used as currency or converted back to dollars.
I mainly convert it back to dollars but iv bought quite a few things just with bit coins. (3DMark11, COD, Dirt 3, other PC software)
Its not really worth your time anymore unless you have a efficient mining rig since 1bit coins only worth around $5 and it would of taken about 3-4 dollars to make it if your using something like a 6970.
Last year I got in and sold quite a lot at the right time (when it was worth $20 a bit coin made enough money to pay for my rig). Now Im just mainly doing it because it outputs the most heat and pays back the power bill.

Heat is good since my PC is in my fermenting room and its coming onto winter. So far its keeping my room between 26-30C where it would other wise be 10-19C

Looks right to me, except your rig says "3930K" and that RealTemp SS says "2600K" wth.gif

Thanks, I just upgraded from the 2600K to the 3930K rig for my daily work machine. I figured I'd use my old 2600K rig for this folding challenge to give it some good karma before I sell it. biggrin.gif

For some reason the 3930K gets a third of the PPD than the 2600K, I'm sure it's something wrong with the way I've set it up but no matter I need my work machine for other stuff during the day.

Yeah, something. You should be -bigadv'ing I think on a 12 thread'er like the 3930k...especially when almost at 5GHz. But even then...smp should be like a 4 minute fold on the 8020.
