Set up miner a few days ago. Still need to work out a few kinks.
most helpful helpful page:
What I've learned:
The launch should be late September(?)
Don't go all out on hardware.
Mine with what you've got(cpu not gpu due to memory hard problems)
There will be a slow start to mining (1st block = 1 ZEC increasing slowly to 50 ZEC every 10 minutes (which may be 4 blocks) ...)
Mine coins - After hours of mining I'm getting 0 balance even though i've modified config file to read genproclimit=8 and system monitor shows all cores at 100%
So grateful I have more than a month to figure things out and prepare.
