Anyone else notice that MTGox.com is down???  Any ideas as to why?



Yes. Either they're moving to a new server or being DDoS'ed. Nobody can get a straight answer.

Is Linux a more stable mining environment then in Windows? After a few hours my 2 5830s start getting errors inside of Phoenix miner or the VPU recovery window comes up and I have to restart or I'll get a BSOD. I am running Windows XP SP3 32bit with latest display drivers and ask 2.4.

No. But most people find it easier.

And XP is probably your problem.

Since there is this newbie restriction please help me here.

First about bitcoin miners. I'm using a guiminer and everytime i try to load video or some webpage loads a video while the miner is on it crashes. No matter what i set fror the -f or -w value for. Any workarounds for this? I would like to us the power of my oc'd 6950 while watching movies etc.

And then about namecoin. For some reason i did not find a usable guide how to set it up on windows/or requirements for it. I installed it and when i try "namecoind.exe getnewaddress" i get:
C:\Users\... ...\namecoin_win32>namecoind.exe getnewaddress
error: couldn't connect to server

I am behind NAT and some firewall that i have no access to. Any way to get it working?

1) Disable hardware acceleration. On the video, right click > Settings > Untick.

2) Doubt it.

Thanks Hands...will tightvnc work over wifi? I'm at work and the site is blocked...

someoneweird: do you mean guiminer?

It should. It's only local.

And no, check my sig Wink V4's being released in a few minutes.

I would go Windows if you have the license..
A) you have paid for it..
B) its very easy (and just as fast, maybe faster because of the OC tools out there)
C) dummy plugs are not a limiting concern because they are ridiculously easy to make -> http://www.overclock.net/folding-home-guides-tutorials/384733-30-second-dummy-plug.html
    fyi: I like to wrap my dummy plugs in electrial tape once I have finished the 1 minute construction process.

Also the new GUIMiner with Phoenix and phatk support is awesome!

I have 3 rigs all setup the same... I get them running with a monitor hooked up (and 1 dummy plug in each of the rest of my videocards), then I go download tightVNC http://www.tightvnc.com/.... Once I know tightVNC is installed and I can connect to the machine, I shut it down. move it to its new "home" in my house, give it a network connection, power, and a dummy plug for that last card and turn it on.. Then I walk back to my laptop, login over tightVNC and kick off my miners (and usually Afterburner because I like to keep track of my temps and tune voltage & clock speed).

* You may have to go into to your screen properties and actually activate the other monitors to get all of your GPUs to activate

Don't use Remote Desktop.. MS is smart enought to know that a remote desktop connection isn't actually using the screen so the GPUs are disabled/blocked from your session. Thats why I use tightVNC.

950 watt power supply
MSI motherboard
4 ati 5830
1gb ram
wifi adaptor
left over hard drive I can use if I do windows

I'm considering using linuxcoin and 4 dummy plugs...would this machine run windows 7?
I'd prefer windows because its easier to overclock the video cards...

unless linux can overclock them? I have no experience with linux but I'm pretty good with computers otherwise...

Linux, then you don't need the dummyplugs. And yes you can OC with linux.

Unless you have the dummyplugs then go for windows, it's easier to OC.

Basically ..if you can't find it on this comparison list you probably don't want to try, because your electric bill will be greater than your income.
Besides of that, it probably have never been tried. In case you get some mining software up and running you want to enter your Mhash/s in that list.

Open CL isn't supported on integrated GPU's. Locked

772  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: How many BTCs have been generated so far? on: June 14, 2011, 11:59:35 AM
At the time of writing this I went to http://blockexplorer.com/q/totalbc and it showed 6532850.00000000. If you wait for a while and refresh the page you can watch it go up by 50 at a time. They have almost made 1/3 of all bitcoins that will ever be made.
How do you mean ''that ever will be made''?

This means that there will only ever be 21,000,000 bit coins on the market.  This is how Bitcoin will stay rare and not just "print" itself into worthlessness. 
So if the 21mil BTC are produced, the mining is over?
No, we still need to mine, because that's how transactions are recorded and verified. If there becomes so little btc in existance, we can move the decimal place, so 0.1btc = 1btc.

774  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Guiminer crashes Win 7 x64 immediately after clicking "stop mining" on: June 14, 2011, 05:34:18 AM
Have you tried restarting your computer? Also, are you positive that you are using the OpenCL poclbm miner + the CUDA (important that you use CUDA not the usual nVidia drivers) driver?
Restarting? yes.  Lol, I give it a restart every time I stop mining.  I just realized I wasnt very specific about the crashes.  When it crashes, I mean the whole machine is unresponsive.  Not even the cursor will move.  Everything is completely locked up until after a hard reset.  And I am pretty sure about using OpenCL.  I can try to double check though.  I am using the defaults if that makes a difference.  And I do have CUDA installed.  I mean, everything works; my hashrate is normal for the video card I am using UNTIL I try to stop it.

Happens to me aswell, Win7 x64 using poclbm with a gt 330.

No idea then. nVidias aren't considered to be too good with mining anyhow. I'd say try to wait for an update to guiminer/poclbm, or just go all-out and use the phoenix-miner binary.

I do realise that. But why not do it? I don't pay for electricity. it's another ~30mh/s

Just use a Linux OS when it comes to Bitcoin, gentlemen. Windows is not for finances.

Well said.

Yeah, as the others said, it's probably your computer, not MtGox being hacked. Try running a couple of different antivirus products, I'd recommend Avira, Comodo and possibly Malware Bytes.

780  Bitcoin / Mining support / Re: Very high rejection rate to bitcoins.lc on: June 14, 2011, 01:06:24 AM
My pool right now is bitcoins.lc. Whenever I leave the miner going for 8+ hours, I generally have about 10% rejection even though everyone else in the pool is getting less than 1%

I'm starting to think it's a latency issue because sometimes I'll run it for 30 min or so and it'll be fine. Other times I'll get 20% rejection.

Currently running a 4870 at 790mhz/790mhz mem at aggression 10 with phoenix and phoenix rising GUI miner. I've played with a lot of settings and nothing seems to help

How hot is your gpu?
