Does not look like the official client supports that.
There is no official client, or official anything. Official implies centralisation.

However, I believe that everyone should decide that for themselves
Address reuse takes away that choice from other users.
Using a unique address per transaction, as Bitcoin was always intended to be used, allows each user to choose for themselves whether they want their transaction record public or not.

However, this affects not only the destination but also source addresses as I understand it.
There are no source addresses.
Addresses are only ever used to receive.

So, if I have mined a lot of coins (and on Eligius, all coins go to a single address, can't really change it, can I?) I have to wait longer if I want to make a few smaller purchases? Actually, same applies to coins bought in an exchange - unless I want to spend time manually withdrawing to different addresses.
Yes, if you use Bitcoin wrong, this will make your transactions take slightly longer to confirm.
That's intentional.
I will continue to work closely with wizkid057 to ensure Eligius gets support for BIP32 as soon as possible.

I like the current system where I can keep coins received by mining in one address (so if I see the notification that 1P5p... received coins I know it is from mining, 175... means LabRat paid dividends etc).
Future software versions implementing BIP32 should be able to notify you based on the recurring invoice id used.

Using bitcoin correctly won't stop your government from tracking you, and isn't intended to.
What it can do, is stop everyone else from tracking you.

Hi wizkid,

I was thinking about changing my deposit address. But since my "Share Rewarded" is about 91% right now, I wanted to check if changing addresses and abandoning my old account makes it less likely that those stored shares might be paid someday. Based on my understanding of the reward system I didn't think it would matter, but I wanted to run it by you first. Thanks!
Won't matter.

My unpaid balance is above my payout threshold, but there is nothing showing in the payout queue (totally blank)
What's going on???
Anyone else seeing the same thing?
I was a few seconds away and jumped to 8 blocks til payout. It does all arrive eventually it seems.

Is the preferred payout to new addresses in effect?  I see on bitcointax.info that there are choices like on spending Bitcoin, last in first out; or first in first out or averaging.  It says if Bitcoins are mixed in an address they can't be separated out.  There is suppose to be a tax advantage to one or another scheme.  So, wanting us to use new addresses might be to our advantage eventually aside from the reduced ripoff potential.
bitcointax.info is wrong; I would have to say whoever wrote it doesn't understand how bitcoin works.

Is Bi•Fury gonna be supported in the next version?  I know it's in the pipeline, just curious.
In fact, you can try the "bifury" branch I pushed to git... It won't report hashrates, but it should mine... Wink
I'll do that this weekend though I won't be able to actually 'try' it until Monday night.  Smiley

Did you have any heat issues with it? (I'm assuming, of course, that you received an engineering sample.)
Plan on using oven gloves to unplug it...

how would one hot plug  a nanofury NF1 through device manager on a windows 7 x32 machine. or can it only be located at startup with hidapi?
Plug it in, hit D M and type in nanofury:auto

How far off until BFGMiner supports the Drillbit thumbs? Just got mine today and want to start running them on my Pi with BFGMiner as soon as possible to keep power consumption down, as CGMiner is too unstable on the Pi at the moment.
I've not heard anything from Drillbit in a while...

I've noticed a number of things in README have fallen out of date.
If you see any of these and feel like helping out, please just pastebin your modified version and PM me a link to it.
Please include in your PM a name and email address for attribution.

Thanks,

How can I get crash logs to you from windows?
Ideally, use --debuglog --log-file someuniquefilenameyouwillremember.log
Paste the backtrace here (the very bottom of the log); if I need the full file, I will ask for it.

bfgminer -o stratum.bitcoin.cz:3333 -x http://proxy.com:8080 -u xxx -p 111
Maybe you should try to connect to stratum+tcp://stratum.btcguild.com:3333 instead of bitcoin.cz.........
Code:
bfgminer -o stratum+tcp://stratum.btcguild.com:3333 -x http://proxy.com:8080 -u xxx -p 111

oops. I made a mistake in my post. Yes, I was using stratum.btcguild.com:3333.

These are the commands that don't work.
bfgminer -o stratum.btcguild.com:3333 -x http://proxy.com:8080 -u xxx -p 111
bfgminer -o stratum+tcp://stratum.btcguild.com:3333 -x http://proxy.com:8080 -u xxx -p 111
bfgminer -o http://stratum.btcguild.com:3333 -x http://proxy.com:8080 -u xxx -p 111

These are the commands that work.
bfgminer -o http://api.bitcoin.cz:8332 -x http://proxy.com:8080 -u xxx -p 111
cgminer -o "http:proxy.com:8080|stratum.btcguild.com:3333" -u xxx -p 111

At least I know that I can do it behind my firewall, it's just that I don't now the correct command or bfgminer does not allow connection to stratum via proxy?
This is a bug in libcurl for HTTP proxies when combined with CURLOPT_CONNECT_ONLY (needed for stratum).
I've found a workaround, and will put it in the next release.

Is Bi•Fury gonna be supported in the next version?  I know it's in the pipeline, just curious.
Yes.

I just want to get the NF1 running on any os other than Windows, has anyone done this, if so can you describe the steps please?
With Gentoo, you can just emerge bfgminer with the nanofury USE flag.
Gentoo is not very mainstream, meaning that's probably not what Linux users of the NF1 are going to be running, it's like #37 on http://distrowatch.com/ nevertheless I will try it. I would have thought it would be tested on on a Debian or Redhat derivative by now.
I've tested another HID miner on Debian with no problems, so I would be surprised if NanoFury didn't work as well.

How did you get bfgminer to detect the hidapi libraries during configure? Did you have to move them from the default location /usr/local/lib/hidapi? the bfgminer configure seems to be looking for a package installed.
No, Everything is under /usr/local:

Note the README's FAQ entry "Q: Why can't BFGMiner find lib<something> even after I installed it from source code?" for actually running, after you get it built...

I just recently realized that I have not received a NMC payout in almost 2 weeks.  I then looked at my MyEligius account, and discovered that my NMC payout address is one that I do not appear to own!  How could my NMC address get changed???  I have never changed it since I initially set it - although I have set other options, like BTC payout amount.

Wizkid, can you check and see how/when my NMC address got changed?  I am waiting until you look into this before I set it back to my correct payout address.

Address?

Mr Wangchun have add with success the "momentum" protocol (ProtoShares) to the Minerd (cpu mining) software.

https://github.com/wangchun/cpuminer

Can is possibile to add it to BFGMiner ? Maybe with the GPU support too ?  Roll Eyes
I don't have time for this at the moment.
Maybe if someone submits a pull request with code...
