+Ben Wynne, this should make it clearer. The Pi is in its little hollowed out book where I keep it, with power, Ethernet and USB going in. The AntMiner is connected to a small powered USB hub as the Pi cannot supply very much juice over USB. On top now are a random assortment of heatsinks I pulled off of an old motherboard. The top ones can probably come off soon, they're more there for extra weight while the thermal paste sets. As a result, I'm now overclocked to a stable 2 GHz.

I have currently mined 543 £/BTC * 0.00248360 BTC = £1.35 of BitCoin, go little AntMiner go!

I should say from the start that I do not expect to make any money from this, but I'm having a little play nonetheless. 

This 2W ASIC AntMiner cost £65, it is hooked up to my Raspberry Pi and as of this evening is mining for BitCoins at 1.6 GHash/s.

If BitCoin stays around £500/coin, this should mine at a rate of around £9/month. But who knows what the price will do next. We will see...

ATLAS this morning. The endcaps are out, the pixel is coming out (sadly at the far end, so not visible from the gantry) and the panorama feature of my phone overall seems a bit gimmky. I guess it works better over longer distances, it cut me in two!
