Hacking bitcoin. After adding a debugging line to main.cpp, I'm seeing typically about 50 transactions being processed in 61ms. Now recompiling with -pg so I can run gprof and see which routines could benefit from an improved algorithm or some assembly language using the YMM registers.

If I can mine more efficiently with off-the-shelf hardware, or better yet, EC2 instances, I could possibly make a bit of money before I feel compelled to share it with the world.
