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!

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?
787  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).
788  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.

What's the flag for going through a proxy (need to connect thru a proxy at work)

Thanks

AFAIK, it doesn't have one.

You do.
792  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Can't launch poclbm on MAC OSX! on: June 13, 2011, 12:56:36 AM
Well maybe I don't understand where the file is supposed to be but I'm sure that bitcoinminer.cl is in the poclbm file (In "Applications") where all the other files are (bitcoinminer.py, bitcoinminer.pyc, poclbm. py, etc.). So, what is the issue here?

Thanks,

Jean.

I don't use mac, but try running as admin? (or the eqiv thereof)
793  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Can't launch poclbm on MAC OSX! on: June 13, 2011, 12:38:54 AM
You don't have OpenCL installed.

Search online for how to download and install OpenCL on your mac.

Nope, that's not it. He's just missing BitcoinMiner.cl.
794  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Can't post?? on: June 13, 2011, 12:29:46 AM

795  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: phoenix on FirePro v7800 and quad core Core i5 gives 5.5 Mhash/sec on: June 12, 2011, 03:27:35 PM
Yes, I did install the AMDAPPSDK. I ran the setup as for a normal ATI card, it even lists the ATI card.



Try using poclbm, see if it lists it.
796  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Stale / rejected share rate? on: June 12, 2011, 03:27:11 PM
Hi all -

This isn't the best sub-forum for this, but its the only place I can post right now.

I've been running my miner in Slush's pool since the early hours of the morning at approx 420Mhash/sec

I now have 4005 accepted shares and 89 rejected.

Those 89 rejected / stale shares are the equivalent of 2.25% of all shares.

Been fairly new I'm wondering if that is an acceptable rate?

I know the difference between stale and plain bad shares, but using Phoenix I don't think there's anyway to differentiate between the two.

How many stale / bad / rejected shares do you get?

Do you think I need to worry about 2.25% and if so could I improve the situation any?

It seems a shame to burn electricity on rejected shares if I can do something about it, even if its only a few...

Cheer

That's not bad, but it's not the best either. Try turning your fans up or trying a different pool.
797  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Advice on increasing MHash rates on: June 12, 2011, 03:25:55 PM
Hello all,

I'm currently mining with a 4890 @100MHash/s, abysmal I know. So I am looking at expanding my setup. My current motherboard only has one PCIe slot that the 4890 is occupying. I was thinking either just replacing it with a 6970 to get 400MHash/s (my goal BTW, at least initially) or replacing the motherboard with one that has 3 PCIe's and grabbing a 6870. Use both the 6870 and 4890 to mine and I should end up with around the same 400MHash/s rate. Thoughts on which to go with? Or if you have a better idea I'm open to suggestions. Thanks!

Shows you can get 108mh/s with that 4890. Just replace it.
798  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: phoenix on FirePro v7800 and quad core Core i5 gives 5.5 Mhash/sec on: June 12, 2011, 03:22:21 PM
Hi,

I set up phoenix on Linux and get only 5.5 Mhash/sec. It is using all 4 CPU cores. I guess it is not using the GPU at all.

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

THanks

Can't see it on the list of mining hardware, I would say it wasn't compatible. But try installing the AMDAPPSDK and running phoenix again.

800  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Pool Down - Work lost? on: June 12, 2011, 02:36:27 PM
When a pool is down, does my hash rate essentially go wasted, or when the pool goes back up, will my work (that was done when the pool was down) be counted and create bitcoins?  Basically is my work lost, or does it get counted once the server goes back up?

If you wanna make sure this never happens, check my sig. BitMiner has full failover support.
