1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / SPEC Chain frozen at Diff of 400 on: October 07, 2015, 01:00:45 PM
So I see that my warnings for the SPEC team have gone unfixed and the developers have locked their thread because of legitimate concerns.  So I am debating on renting a ridiculously high hashrate and driving the diff up even high and finally killing SPEC for good.  

Wanted thoughts from the community and possibly the SPEC devs to FIX THE DAMN PROBLEM!  Your network is degrading by the minute and is hugely flawed without another method of finding blocks.

I can't speak to the projects that were promised but never delivered but if it reflects on their abilities as altcoin devs we can probably assume that cryptotrader won't be much better.  So I say we put SPEC out of it's misery and assure no blocks are ever found again.

What say you?


Wanted to add something.  I have been mining SPEC since it's announcement but when developers refuse to provide any information that might put the consumers mind at ease, in my opinion it is up the the community to send a message.  By raising the diff to heights no normal ASIC would be able to reach it forces the SPEC team to do one of two things.  Rent hash and spend their own money (unless someone is dumb enough to do it for them) or to provide a fix in a timely manor in order to prevent more damage done to their brand and their chain.
2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / BFGMiner Requesting work Updates on: May 01, 2014, 03:49:23 PM
I currently have CGMiner up and running fine but I want to switch over to MultiMiner for the profitability switching.  The problem I am coming across is BFGMiner just keeps requesting work updates but never actually mines or reports to the pool. 
In MultiMiner the hashrate will go up to about 700 (I get 910 with CGMiner) and will then plummet to lower than 25KH/s also does not report to the pool.

So from what I can guess the problem is with BFGMiner but I have absolutely no idea what could be causing it.  Should I try an older version?  Will it work with MultiMiner if I do?
Troubleshooting I have done so far.

Running AMD 13.12 drivers I tried 14.14 but they did not work at all.  Tried other driver versions with the same results.
Removed and setup BFGMiner from scratch a few times
Windows firewall is not blocking the application.

Here is my config file.  Of course I have the worker and password in my actual config.
