I did have a miner up and running for a while, just for interest.

Specifically 2 x Antminers hooked up to a Raspberry Pi.

Forget mining with CPUs or GPUs. The difficulty level is now too high for that.

I used a Raspberry Pi so as to minimize power consumption. Power efficiency is an important factor, otherwise your energy bill will exceed the amount you are making.
