1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Running 24/7? on: January 18, 2010, 04:49:43 AM
I knew that Bitcoin would increase my temps. My computer is semi-new and I haven't done much full load testing, but Bitcoin makes my machine rise 20-25 degrees C. It's still safe, at 57...but just curious. Do you all run Bitcoin 24/7, and if so, is it bad to run at 100% usage, at such a temp, whenever the computer is on? I've played games or used certain programs with high load for a while, but never thought it would be healthy to support higher temps non-stop.


Also, an idea while studying this earlier. It may be small potatoes at this point, but a scheduler to accomodate different times you want it to run and/or how many processors you want running at once.

For example, it would be nice to have it run on full load while I am busy or at work, while slowing down to one or two processors during my main usage hours. Or for those with a computer that is a bit old or they don't exactly trust, turn the load down at night or when you are not home for safety precautions of temps.

Like I said, a timer/scheduler like that is small potatoes, but at some point I'd really like to see it in the Options menu.
2  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Number of connections? on: January 16, 2010, 02:27:15 PM
What exactly does the number of connections do for me? Do I generate more coins with more connections, or is it equivalent no matter what?

It seems that from time to time, Tor gets tied up and can go for a few hours with 3 or 4 connections. Then, when I restart bitcoin or restart Tor to refresh my connections, I can get 7,8, or even more (9 currently).
I haven't really been able to tell if coins generate slower or not with less connections, but I was curious if it does correlate. If not, how exactly will having more connections help me out compared to less?
