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.

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.

769  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?

Any chance I could get a copy of the src?  Im a C# developer by trade and could possibly help out or at the very least educate myself further about the intricacies of mining with this...

Possibly, PM me.

--edit, remember, it's .net, so it's easily reflectible.

Bump. V4 coming soon with increased error handling and lots more pools!

Bump again, failover support fixed (btw I broke it, haha). V4 should be coming soon!
773  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: The Experiment: Is it possible to buy a shirt using only mining and free coins? on: June 13, 2011, 08:30:49 AM
I'm using the guiminer now, still getting only around 4.2. It's on my current laptop, using a GeForce GT 320M. Adding on the CPU gives me around 10mh/s. So pretty bad. Also the pool I joined is down again.  Roll Eyes



I get 25mh/s on my 330m

Hmm, really? That is one "version" up, but I don't know why it's so bad in the first place. Bah.

EDIT: On the wiki, it says:
GT 320M (MacBook Air)    6.12
320M (Mac mini 2010)    7.0

I'm using an acer laptop, so I expect it to be slightly lower than that.


Wow. Bit of a difference. :S

Hey, my name is CorruptDropbear (you can call me Drop if you want). I live in Australia, I like pineapples and gaming, and currently studying Computing and Digital Media at Uni. You can follow me on twitter with @corruptdropbear

So I've been looking at bitcoins for a while now because of their no-location policy (being able to purchase stuff without having the Australian tax). Right now I've had another idea that I'm going to do just for fun, seeing if it's possible to actually make "something out of nothing", and see how long it will take for me to buy a shirt using only bitcoins that I'm pool mined or I won for free. I've got my laptop running at 4100khash/s (not very good, think I'm going to get 0.001BTC a day.), and I'm looking around for other ways to get bitcoins. There's also the problem of the exchange rate which will be either help or hinder me.

So, does anyone think what I'm doing is possible? I know that in the past bitcoins were easy to get, but now it'll be an interesting challenge.

You should be getting more than 4mh/s even with a nVidia card, what miner are you using?
776  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Centralization: How do clients initially know who to talk to? on: June 13, 2011, 06:29:40 AM
Some hard wired nodes - and apparently a fallback implemented / planned to lookup an IRC channel?

The hardcoded nodes are IRC server (pretty sure).
777  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Centralization: How do clients initially know who to talk to? on: June 13, 2011, 05:05:49 AM
I love the decentralization idea of Bitcoin.  My only question on that is:  when the computer first turns on and the client is loaded up and gets on the internet, how does it know who to connect to to join the network?  There must be some sort of central server (I've seen mention of IRC) it logs into.  Isn't there a risk Uncle Sam could take that down?

Yeah, there are several hardcoded 'nodes',
if someone manages to take them down
eventually, then the client will just be updated
with new one.
