21  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: Price/difficulty ratio of profitability on: June 21, 2011, 06:42:24 AM
41908 is the estimated bitcoins generated by 1 mhash/s at 1 difficulty for 1000 hours, according to numbers output by the bitcoin calculator on the web.

Then this number is manipulated by how many mhash/s you can generate for 1 watt of power, and by how much your power costs per kwh (hence the 1000 hours in the aforementioned number).

I don't know, it's rather confusing looking at it myself, but the answer makes sense.  Prove it wrong, please.  Smiley

I'm confused as to why you chose 1000 hours? I mean it's a nice round number but how to does it relate to profitability exactly? I'm not trying to prove you wrong, I'm just trying to work out where the numbers are coming from.

1000 hours to cancel out the factor of 1000 in kWH in the formula.

It makes sense for the current difficulty, right? That is 887k.

What will the profitability be if the difficulty is 1.4million?  3 million? 7 million?

The difficulty is included in

Price/Difficulty ratio is 0.000015412202315

A 40% difficulty increase to 1241800 would be 0.000015412202315 / 1.4 = 0.000011008715939
23  Bitcoin / Pools / Re: Continuum Mining Pool: No fees; Optional PPS; Client uptime monitoring on: June 21, 2011, 01:46:31 AM
Hello all,

I am writing to inform everyone that I am discontinuing PPS mode in the pool. I had a set limit of losses for PPS and that has been exceeded. Beyond that, I want to focus exclusively on developing the best (in a technical sense) pool I am able. Going back to an entirely score based method will allow me to do that with a minimum of fuss. I realize that this will cause some to leave the pool, though I would encourage you to move your hashing power over to the score-based pool. It will continue to be immune to hopping attacks and will have its history published to ensure transparency.

Note: Once PPS is switched off, PPS miners will be completely paid out so long as balance is above 0.01 BTC..

Thanks.

Sorry to hear that Martok. Was wondering why I suddenly received a small payment from the pool.

.65BTC and you've got a deal.

Meet me halfway (well closer to your half) at 0.7BTC and we have a deal sir.

How much do you want for Super Meat Boy?

How about 0.8BTC?

Isn't this against the SSA(steam subscriber agreement)?

I don't believe it is, I'm not selling Steam accounts. Even if it were against the rules they couldn't prove that I didn't gift the game for free. AFAIK noone has ever been punished for selling gifted games (not accounts).

Good job posting in the mining subforum and ignoring the countless other threads in the correct subforum OP.

Dose anyone have the Mt Gox list of usernames in alphabetical order, by email address preferably , im fcked if i can go through that many random accounts to find mine.

30  Bitcoin / Pools / Re: Attention: mining pool operators on: June 19, 2011, 04:53:17 PM
I'm not accusing anyone pool operator of stealing. I understand the reasons why this policy was adopted. But from what I hear that was a while back. Can anyone even tell which bitcoin client users are running today? All I want is some setting to withdraw my entire amount as is my right. Currently if I want to withdraw all my bitcoins from a pool I have to calculate how much longer I should mine for for a small chance at getting my total amount to round up to some decimal place so I can withdraw most of it.
31  Bitcoin / Pools / Re: Attention: mining pool operators on: June 19, 2011, 01:12:45 PM
I wouldn't word it so strongly but yes it is irritating we can't withdraw our full balance. I understand that this is because some earlier Bitcoin clients can't handle those transactions but at least give us the option to withdraw the full amount with a warning. If we lose it that's our fault then.

Have set a price for the chips now. I can sell any amount, small or large and can give a discount for bulk deals.

I have two successful trades from my other thread selling Steam games, with rep found here and here

I have ~900m chips for sale. Zynga sell ~1m chips for $5.75 (sale price) but I will sell them for FAR less, less than a dollar in fact. Anyone interested?

In the interest of protecting an unwitting buyer,

buying Zynga poker chips from a third party will result in your chip stack being reset to zero.

I appreciate your concern for potential buyers. I'm aware of Zynga's rules about buying chips from 3rd parties but I've been selling chips for about 2 years now. I've sold roughly ~5billion chips for about 2500 and have never had a problem. Ever. The trick is to not make it obvious, some people make the amateur mistake of making a huge bet and then standing up from the table to lose the chips intentionally. This behaviour is a huge flag to Zynga.

I rarely play nowadays so I just want rid of these chips. I'm selling Steam games in my other thread so I'm not here to rip anyone off.

I have ~900m chips for sale. Zynga sell ~1m chips for $5.75 (at sale price) but I will sell them for FAR less.

1.5m chips for $1 worth of BTC.

Anyone interested?

38  Bitcoin / Mining support / Re: Having two issues... am new, cant ask technical forum. on: June 18, 2011, 06:20:32 AM
For the first issue, what PSU do you have? Are they crossfired? Sounds like they're not getting enough power or overheating.

Second issue I don't quite understand. Are you solomining on it or poolmining? If the latter you don't need the bitcoin server running. If it's the former then I believe 3.23 has issues with it, use 3.21 instead.

Still down?

strange can hit deepbit from a remote location but no from home where my miners are and there all down. can hit any other website on the net and double checked dns and it going to the correct ip just cant connect with miners, webpage or ping.. comcast blocking??

That's odd I'm having no trouble connecting to the site or mining server.
