NeoScrypt mining for CPUs and GPUs
We have some plans to switch the current CPU/GPU Scrypt mining to NeoScrypt mining. There are no ASIC miners for NeoScrypt, so using CPUs and GPUs to mine NeoScrypt coins (Phoenixcoin and Feathercoin) would be profitable.

Campaign #3 bitcoins exchanged to euros
Today I took all the 9.8631978 bitcoins of Campaign #3 (Milkyway@home) and exchanged them to euros using the local bitcoin service I have already gotten 2696.15 euros in my bank account.

I was going to use PayPal to send those euros to Milkyway@home, but PayPal is telling that my credit card is not accepted.

I made IBAN transfer to PayPal Europe and I'm hoping that those euros will show up in my PayPal account during this week, so I can finally make the donation for Milkyway@home.

I wish people could just accept bitcoins for at least three reasons:
- not so many middle men taking fees
- less complicated (now I had to use three different services to make the donation:, Nordea bank, and PayPal, and the donation is not even sent yet!)
- faster than bank transfers (the donation would already be there)

btcguild pool is now used for new ASIC workunits pool is now used for new ASIC workunits. There are still some ASIC workunits left. CPU/GPU apps are still using or because CPU/GPU mining is not very effective at pool. They don't support Scrypt.
