    GPU hoarding bastards... Hope the whole lot goes up in flames (with no-one in the building, obviously).

    If it's a bit-coin mine it'll be entirely comprised of ASICs, surely?

    They certainly looked like AntMiners to me.

    Ironic isn't it? In the supposedly capitalist UK it would be shut down by the government immediately due to the wet floor, in supposedly communist China no one lets a puddle on the floor get in the way of profit.
