For example, https://deepbit.net with over 3100 GH/s of hashrate Smiley

And a, what is it,  3 or 4% fee?
The bad luck block has been solved meanwhile, as well as 2 more blocks in the same day averaging miner revenue out already at or maybe above average.

More importantly perhaps, huge pools like deepbit give their operators a dangerous amount of control over bitcoin.  Luke Jr take down of coilcoin shows this potential. I think its better for cryptocurrencies if hash rate is spread out as much as possible, which is one reason Ill never mine for a pool with more than ~20% of the hashrate.

When will this meme die?  Bitcoin doesn't need to (and probably will not) become a "mainstream currency" that your grandma uses to do e-commerce.

Maybe you should read what I wrote, before replying. 
The assumption that bitcoin at some point will become as popular as paypal today has about the same likelyhood of materializing as the assumption bitcoin will never become anything more than it is today; an obscure way to transfer wealth for mostly illegal purposes. I never said either scenario is likely or what I believe in.
1723  Bitcoin / Pools / Re: Eligius-miners: Do you agree with what is done with your hashing power? on: January 07, 2012, 09:01:25 PM
So another unsupported claim to "support" your unsupported claim.

Ive seen the posts where he took "credit" for taking it down. You will have to forgive me for  being too lazy to find them.
 I havent seen him admit he used his pool's hashing power, but thats a fair assumption to make, as I doubt he (or almost any individual) has enough hashing power of himself.
1724  Economy / Speculation / Re: highest volume ever on: January 07, 2012, 12:27:35 PM
I see myself as a speculator doing his proper job, namely stepping in when prices go absurd.

Define absurd. If your reference is actual economic trade done using bitcoins, any price above $0.1 is absurd. If your reference is bitcoin mid- to longterm potential to become a mainstream currency, any price below at least $1000 is absurd. You seem to use last weeks or last months price as reference, thats perhaps even more absurd.

If you analyze it in detail, you will find its a huge purchase order for Mt Gox!

Well, maybe not, but whatever it is, almost certainly originates from a (somewhat) intelligent species called humans.

1728  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Best miner? on: January 07, 2012, 11:24:15 AM
It depends somewhat on the card. With 58x0 cards Ive found bitminter to be among the fastest, but cgminer is still a hair faster, and has some nifty features like pool management, fanspeed, clockspeed etc tweaking. It is a bit a of a pita to configure, and its also not been too stable for me lately although that might be fixed now in the git tree.
1729  Bitcoin / Pools / Re: Eligius-miners: Do you agree with what is done with your hashing power? on: January 07, 2012, 11:19:58 AM
Attacking a chain is perhaps lame, but I dont see it as a crime.
If its true however, Luke used the participants of his pool's hashing power to carry out the attack, that would be serious indeed. No one should entrust his hashing power to a pool operator that uses it at will for any purpose he sees fit. Its no different than deepbit deciding to attack bitcoin for a laugh.
1730  Economy / Speculation / Re: highest volume ever on: January 07, 2012, 11:08:13 AM
So, does that mean, that the price will continue to rise with acceleration ?
Or it indicates the top of the rally ?

Its quite clear what it means; the price will go up, and then down. And then up and then down again, before again going up until it goes down. Though Im not quite sure the  first move, it might go down before going up. Other than that, there is no doubt.
1731  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: New AMD driver to support OpenCL on a 4250 on: January 07, 2012, 11:04:14 AM
I'm using an HD6250 oc'd to 950mhz and am happy with the results, about 250 mh/s.  I

Are you sure about this? 250 MH/s from that chip ? That would be spectacular. HD6250 is the GPU part of zacate (AMD c-30) which is a 9W chip. And thats for cpu, gpu and everything else. NOw that GPU is normally clocked at 280 MHz, so I think you mistyped or something
1732  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: Which VNC program do you use? (... assuming you do) on: January 07, 2012, 10:30:42 AM
Is there an SSH equivalent for windows? I found an actual openSSH port for windows, but its very old and doesnt seem to work on 64 bit W7. I just want a remote command line in windows.

freeSSHd is old, but it should work on 7.  i know it works on server 2008 at least.


Thanks. Ill give that a try

The same chip is used on some older videocards, including the 2900XT, which has 2 :
http://kingpincooling.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1095

You could try buying such a card from ebay or something and then transplant that VT1165MF. Whether that will work and is worth the effort is something else..

Did you know if the "2900 Pro" have this chip?!

According to that link; yes, if it is a reference design
1734  Other / Off-topic / Re: Abolish the Minimum Wage Law on: January 07, 2012, 10:15:26 AM

All that would do is devalue an already worthless dollar. It would create nothing. If anything, it would raise food costs and force employers to raise prices.

You can keep saying that, but it doesnt make it true.  Printing trillions of dollars and giving it to the banks should cause vastly more inflation, If you are so concerned about inflation, thats what you should worry about. But even that so far has not really created inflation. inflation isnt our problem at this point.

 Besides, minimum wage in real dollars today is lower than it was in the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s.

The end is near? That sounds... not very reassuring!

btw, about a bounty system, perhaps you could make proportional to the CDF, once above a certain treshold (say 90% or something). Its something pool hoppers could exploit, but I wouldnt mind some poolhoppers joining at this point.
1736  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin DRM behind price increase? on: January 06, 2012, 11:21:38 PM
makes no sense at all.
Aside from the more fundamental issues already addressed, if it works with 1 BTC, there is no reason it wouldnt work with 0.0000001 BTC. The impact of such amounts on the exchange rates would be about zero if for a top game.

1737  Other / CPU/GPU Bitcoin mining hardware / Re: ATI Radeon 5870 almost dead, it can be fixed?! on: January 06, 2012, 11:08:20 PM
Oddly enough I had this happen to me once...

I was mining happily when all of a sudden my 5850 OR 5870 suddenly displayed 127C in cgminer, and my PC also had a hang. After rebooting it worked fine...but I never understood what happened.

I do. You ran GPU-Z, everest and/or MSI afterburner (at least two of those apps). The combination of those apps causes a bug in a 58x0 BIOS and makes the vcore shoot to 1.65v randomly. I fried a 5850 that way. More details here:

The litecoin pool-x have a system that I dont quite know the details about, but they give a bonus/bounty to anyone solving a long block. That may not be a bad idea.

To give a good example, I hereby pledge 0.25 BTC to the person finding the next block on bitminter (if he claims it here, Im not gonna chase him).
1739  Bitcoin / Mining software (miners) / Re: Extremly slow minting? on: January 06, 2012, 04:00:10 PM
Last BTC block was minted 2 days and 5 hours ago.. Whats up with this? Really bad luck?

CDF of 97% currently

https://bitminter.com/livestats/big

Yes, thats bad luck. But only a few days ago we minted 6 blocks in 24 hours, with a lower hashrate at that, so I wouldnt feel too bad yet Smiley
It just goes with a small pool, you have lucky and not so lucky days. But in the long run you will earn more than with the big pools, because you dont pay a fee.

1740  Economy / Economics / Re: Junk Money Party will go on for 3 years on: January 06, 2012, 01:31:44 PM
That's a huge "if".  The thing is that government is not wiser than free people.  Most of the time it just wastes the money into stupid things.

Some thing just work better if the motivation is not short term financial profit for a few, but long term advantages for the entire society. Public transport, healthcare and education are some examples of that. There are enough countries where this does works properly, Ive not seen one where a free market properly addresses it.

Of course, that doesnt mean anything if you have government which has no interest in advancing society at large, because it doesnt represent the will of the people, but is beholden to special interests on which its entirely dependent for election and finance (even on an individual level, particularly after a political career). This is the problem in the US imo; not that a government would be doing these things, the problem is your government is no longer representative, so no matter what it does, its not designed to benefit you.  The solution is not replacing government by corporations (to a large extend, you already have that!). Fix your electoral system first, and then worry about what thing are best  achieved by profit only motives.
