asic - Is it worthy to use "bitcoin usb block erupter ...

Giving up and going back into the pool but I need updating

Four years ago I was mining bitcoin for fun (still have my ASICminer Block Cube Eruptor) and even had a bitcoin startup. Unfortunately I listened to the people that said bitcoin would never really materialize and gave it all up. Idiot.
Now I want to dive into the pool again but not sure if my miner will still work for hashing and if things are completely different.
The pools I was in are gone (and so is my bitcoin) so does anyone know if:
1) my old miner will still work (30-40GH I believe)
2) there is a good place to start to get me up and running again.
Thank you

Want to invest in bitcoin but willing to accept more risk for more return? Maybe investing would be right for you!

As we all know, companies such as AsicMiner are currently kicking butt with their asics by releasing the eruptor blades and Erupter USB sticks for mining. This combined with their 28% or so of total hashing power for the entire bitcoin network is resulting in fantastic growth over the past few months, and their dividends are doing quite well.
If you are interested in shares of AsicMiner , check out either Direct Shares or Pass Through shares, which is just one share of AsicMiner. You can find them in auctions on bitcointalk as well as sites such as BTCT.TO
You can also get smaller shares known as micro shares. There are often times 1/100th of a full share so people can easier purchase them and provide an easier method for reinvesting dividends.
There are other shares too, such as AMC which just recieved a few Avalons they purchased a while ago. Keep in mind that the owners relations with others on the forum is quite poor and very unprofessional, so I would still consider it rather risky.
There are also companies which are not based on bitcoin but experimenting with it as a source of capital, such as KenilWorth on bitfunder, who are a mining company which finds raw material deposits and then sells them to another company (I think). The people with that company are VERY responsive on bitcointalk and seem to be very professional.
You can even if you wish bet on funds which are reliant upon BFL's shipping, such as HaveLock's Investments Mining Fund. The owner of that fund is also rather response on bitcointalk and is a very down to earth person from what I have seen. For example, they just purchased a single Jupiter rig from KnCMiner in an effort to diversify so if BFL fails they will not be destroyed.
They are also other funds out there which are designed to represent an amount of Mhash/s per each share, for example RedStarMining which aims to have 180 Ghash/s eventually, with each share containing 2.818 Mhash/s.
Also, a very cool thing about these funds is that they are very present on bitcointalk in the securities section, so you can see up to date discussion about each fund. For example, for red star mining, here is their thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=63257.0
You can even get a fund in an exchange, such as Crypto-Trade! Though, they seem to be having some major issues with their site for a while now, which is unfortuntate.
And you can get shares in the gambling site satoshidice!
There are tons of such securities available for lots of different styles people could choose, and because of bitcoin buying these shares is a very painless process. But do keep in mind that this is riskier than just holding bitcoin, and there are a good bit of scams prevalent in such securities, but if you keep an eye out and read their associated threads on bitcointalk you will be for the most part safe. Also, investing in companies like AsicMiner increases the network hash rate, making it even harder for a single entity to barge in and get more than 50% of the network hash rate, resulting in an even more secure network! These sometimes even hare shares which cost less than five dollars, so to get started you don't need much BTC at all.
And here is the link to bitcointalk for anyone who wants to do more research and look at any other funds which might be of interest. Don't forget that there are some funds which are not exchanged on these sites, for example group buys where each buyer holds a certain percentage of proceeds from a very expensive miner they pool together to buy. As earlier though, be careful.
There is also a really good subreddit for discussing these securities as well as others on /BitcoinStocks !
Edit: Added in bitcointalk threads for each security I listed.
Edit: It seems that there are nearly half as many downvotes as there are upvotes. Can anyone clarify?

ASICMiner Blades as a holiday gift: Best gift or biggest insult?

Edit: Oh shit, I said blades but meant usb block eruptors. My bad
Like every year, I will be lost on what to get my family members as a gift for the holidays. My brother has been interested in Bitcoin but hasn't had that reason to dive into it. I was thinking buying a 4-5 ASICMiner blades block eruptors for him depending on the price.
What does everyone think of it as a gift instead of a miniature investment?

Bitcoin mining made really easy/BFGminer quick start guide

There is 2 parts to this
If i am missing somthing of if you want to add to this then please tell ms so i can make the changes. All is one and one is all. Infomation wants to be free, so dont be a dick help me make this better for all. Oh one more thing before we start I don't give a rats ass about up votes or down votes or square votes for this matter, I made this to help anyone who is stuck, if you don't like it then scram!(Its not like im forcing you to read this)...Or i am i ...
So if you new or experienced bitcoin miner you should know that shit ain't free. The reason for this is the fact that electric isn't free.(Oh the fun days we would have if it was) When mining there is always going to be a cost, like how to pay for the Hardware, and the power and the maintenance and something that everyone forgets, The time it can take to set up the hardware and the scripts to miner. I chose to do a side project on this and got my own Asic miner USB Block eruptor that mines at 336mhs. It took me about 6 hours to write a working batch file. So show i wanted to show it to you all because it is a pain in the ass.
BFGMINER PART
So If your using "ASICMiner Block Erupter USB 333-336MH/s Sapphire Miner" You have found the right page
You will need install the drivers here is the link = These drivers may be downloaded from: http://www.silabs.com/products/mcu/Pages/USBtoUARTBridgeVCPDrivers.aspx
So this is what i use BFGMINER.exe Verson 3.2.1 So i made a batch file With this in it.(If you need help making this then please tell me.I don't mind helping.)
C:\Users\Admin\Desktop\bfgminer-3.2.1-win64\bfgminer-3.2.1-win64\bfgminer.exe -o stratum+tcp://uk1.ghash.io:3333 -u YOURNAMEHER.worker1 -p YOURPASSWORD --disable-gpu -S all
-o stratum+tcp://uk1.ghash.io:3333 This is my mining pool -S all will find all divices -disable-gpu because i don't want it to mine on my GPU. Make this the location of you BFG miner C:\Users\Admin\Desktop\bfgminer-3.2.1-win64\bfgminer-3.2.1-win64\bfgminer.exe
-u YOURNAMEHER.worker1 This is your username and workername. -p YOURPASSWORD This is your password
So from all of this it worked i have basically pieced together everything that i found to make the batch file that will start mining
Woot Woot Empty Space
