Sometimes when you're designing a website without using a CMS like Wordpress, or your project uses more than one CMS, it becomes necessary to look outside the box for a website search solution. Thankfully it's rather easy to set up with the help of an external search engine. I prefer duckduckgo.com since it's a privacy-first search engine which doesn't track you.In fact, the search function of this blog is powered by the very same technique I'm going to explain for you here. At it's simplest, it's just an html form with a single input and an optional button.
On 16/2/2018 Garlicoin changed algorithms from Scrypt Adaptive-N to Allium, so this tutorial is out of date for GRLC mining, however you can use MacMiner for CPU mining Garlicoin if you set it up for Allium instead of Scrypt Adaptive-N
MacMiner supports CPU and GPU mining Scrypt Adaptive-N - This post is a quick and easy tutorial on getting it set up.
First download MacMiner from http://macminer.fabulouspanda.com/
Next, find a Scrypt Adaptive-N pool you want to mine at. For the purposes of this tutorial, I'll be using garlicpool.org
Once registered at the pool I create a worker on the website, which gives me a username and a worker name, and I just use x for the password as it is not required at this pool.
In MacMiner, press cmd comma or use the menu bar to open the preferences pane from the MacMiner menu.
Set up the pool making sure you're using Scrypt Adaptive-N, like so:
It is necessary to include the pool protocol for mining to work, so make sure the pool has
at the beginning!
Save, and from the 'View' menu, open the GPU and/or CPU miner windows, depending on which you want to use.
Each miner window has a little cog button that opens the miner settings. For GPU mining, open that and set the manual flag
and hit apply. You may also wish to alter your Intensity setting. I recommend setting Intensity to 11, running on an AMD Radeon HD 7870 going any higher than 11 causes mostly invalid shares to be submitted to the pool. Experiment with what works best for your card but remember that higher settings run hotter.
Then hit start on the GPU miner and you're good to go!
Hit start on the CPU miner and it'll start mining using all available CPU threads. If you don't know how many that is, this is a good way to find out. If you only want to use a portion of the available threads, use the flag
where 4 is the number of threads you want to use for mining, like so:

I have compiled command line miners for XMR available here:
With instructions included. But if you'd rather compile the code yourself, here are some simple instructions
The most well known developers of Bitcoin have raised important issues regarding the long term viability of the Bitcoin network, and the various solutions proposed going forwards. Due to the lack of consensus, this has resulted in a great deal of fear and uncertainty in the user base.
Luke-jr (https://github.com/luke-jr/bfgminer) has updated the bfgminer source with Bitmain Antminer U3 support, although it has not yet reached a released version. I've compiled the latest source in advance of the bfgminer 5.2 release, which includes support for the U3!

Those of you who know London will know that it’s a sprawling city set over a very wide area. Those of you who live here will also know what it’s like to commute in this town. Personally, a few years was all I could take before I had to find a way to work that didn’t involve a sardine can - and when I was faced with the option of spending a few thousand to renew a yearly travel card or finding a more rewarding investment, the answer seemed obvious.
