Dear miners, mining pool operators and mining software authors,
We all know what causes the value of the ZEC that you get from mining to go up in price, and that's demand. What drives demand? More users. Where are the users? On Windows machines, of course!
I'm on the verge of releasing Zcash for Windows, and @vaklinov has finished adapting his Swing Wallet so that its Windows compatible. My Zcash on Windows port has been in the works since before the Genesis Block on Oct 28, and with help from the Zclassic community, is nearly ready for Zcash and Zclassic. An icky bug is causing some threads to go nuts and peg CPU use even when its not mining, but all functionality is now there.
However, I need your help! We're short on rent that's due in a couple of days, and my ISP bills are due this week, too. This is a purely volunteer effort, and I do not have a day job. Just 10 ZEC will put me over the top for making rent on time, and another few will pay the rest of the bills that coming due.
Let's pull together and get the masses able to use Zcash, it'll drive demand, raise prices of ZEC on the exchanges, and help out the entire Zcash ecosystem!
Thanks for your support, some miners and mining software authors have recently kicked in some resources, but I'm almost at the finish line on this one and don't want to have to take my eye off the ball and go rustling up some lame short-term consulting contract when Zcash for Windows is so close.

Thank you, and happy mining!
