How to mine CAT .

Windows Quick Start - CPU Mining
Choose a pool and register there
After you login, create a new worker on your pool's 'My Workers' page
 
Down CPUMiner from here
Extract it to a folder called 'miner' on your desktop
Download Mining Proxy here and save it inside the same folder of your CPU Miner files
Open a console in the directory of Mining Proxy and copy, paste, and fill in the following template, then hit enter:
Code:

mining_proxy.exe -oPOOLURL -pPOOLPORT

Open a second console at the same directory and copy, paste, and fill in the following template, than hit enter:
Code:

minerd -ohttp://localhost:8332 -uWEBLOGIN.WORKERNAME -pWORKERPASSWORD -t1 -q

Be sure to not edit the locathost and port; -t1 mean that you only use 1 of your CPU thread, if you want to ruin your CPU then use -t2; if you want to see your annoying hash meter simply delete -q


Windows Quick Start - GPU Mining

Mining with the GPU is usually much faster than with the CPU. If you own an AMD graphics card, please use CGMiner. If you use a Nvidia graphics card, please use CudaMiner.

CudaMiner
Just follow the above steps, but instead download CudaMiner and put the following in your run.bat:
Code:

cudaminer.exe -o STRATUM:PORT -u USERNAME.WORKERNAME -p PASSWORD

CGMiner
Example coming soon.
