I'm not worried about competing coiners hating on me for "having an unfair advantage" with an ASIC. I know that it's a fact of life for those who have an unusually high hashrate. Just don't take it personally and it will have no impact.

The hate towards my friend (not related to cryptocurrency, just mean, jealous people), however, has negatively impacted her business and hence why I feel that sharing mining profits is a good way to show my friendship. And that using solar power to do so also shows my friendship for the Earth.

Here's a system diagram for those trying to understand the setup. The "ideal diode" is a TI SM74611, which is quite a fascinating device.

To my surprise, shortly after Naomi Wu gave me a bit of fame for making good use of solar power, Allie Moore got really jealous of her...
