We have been acting wonky since Sandy, the main server in New Jersey hash been seeing strange patterns of packet loss. I have provisioned some new servers in Georgia.  PA.mtred is looking good, and I hope to have a stratum server up soon.

Holy crap!  Your alive!  Had me worried.

i strongly believe that BTC cgminer for GPU will be dead in a matter of weeks.
Thus, all the efforts now for cgminer development should be in the direction of LTC (scrypt) Smiley

Your dictionary is wrong. Belief does not imply either evidence or lack thereof.

One of the oldest, most established, most respected, and wide spread dictionaries of all time for the English language is wrong because Luke Jr. doesn't agree with it.  If anyone needed proof that Luke Jr. was nothing but a self-centered, egotistical, deluded, douchbag I think that pretty much sums it up.

Nothing personal against you guys as CoinLab, but personally I see no reason to continue to point my gear at you guys.  With the block reward being reduced, quite clearly the profit margin has significantly decreased for all miners, regardless of what gear they are using.  That being said, while personally my GPU systems are still profitable, every little bit counts now more than ever.  I can see no reason to stay here until/unless the HPC client is released and providing work.  There are just to many other pools out there with far more features, and lower fees.

I wish you all the best of luck, and I hope I will be back soon with the release of the HPC client and work.

What, you have no more loyalty points to redeem or something?!

I have all my "Loyalty Points" left, I just see no reason to use them at this time.

There is a two-year expiration date on loyalty points from the time we cross below the price floor.  Because the crossing of the threshold was caused by the block reward halving, Loyalty Points will expire two years from today - 11/28/2014.   

Interesting aside.  Wink  If I had Loyalty Points, I would probably wait until ASICs hit if I was still mining profitably. However, if I was planning on ebaying my GPUs before they become depreciated from obsolescence, maybe squeezing them for all they got as fast as possible is the way to go.  Tough call. I'd love to hear more about other people's strategies. 

I don't think most miners that are on CoinLab are planning to Ebay their gear.  There is a rumor floating around about some company that is supposedly developing a custom client for GPUs to do HPC work.  No proof of this yet of course.   Grin
7  Bitcoin / Pools / Re: [ANN] CoinLab Protected Pool on: November 28, 2012, 06:40:15 PM
Now that the block reward has halved, is there any reason NOT to redeem loyalty points? It seems like the prudent thing to do.
It all depends on your operating cost and is different for everyone.  Personally, I am still profitable with my GPU rigs, probably will be until ASICs hit and drive the difficulty to the moon.  Then it will either be time to use loyalty points and CoinLabs yet to be released software, or part them out.

"TOTAL LOYALTY POINTS EARNED: 0"

Is this already working? (I don't hope so...)

Code:
Loyalty point earning period ended Nov 25, 2012 Midnight UTC, total loyalty points earned: 32,525,253

Seems to be working for me.
9  Bitcoin / Pools / Re: [ANN] CoinLab Protected Pool on: November 26, 2012, 11:46:19 PM
So how do I switch to the "normal" pool?  I really don't feel like staying on the "protected" 95% pool if I am no longer pulling in loyalty points.  I might as well just pull my rigs off and go somewhere that doesn't have a 5% fee.

I have learned quite a bit since starting with BitCoin, I will try to sum it all up for anyone who doesn't want to read every post in these forums.

Luke Jr. is never wrong.
Inaba is never wrong.
RealSolid is never wrong.

I can only wait in eager anticipation for the day when EMC adds SC mining, with SC mining added to BFG miner.  Then we will truly be living in a utopia!

Are you people really this dense?  They said they would be taking a four day weekend. Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday.  It's a business.  It's a holiday weekend.  They are closed until Monday.
12  Bitcoin / Pools / Re: [ANN] CoinLab Protected Pool on: November 24, 2012, 06:24:52 AM
Coinlab hav not been here 2 days now. Maybe busy with that new client thing?

Or maybe they are not working today, or yesterday, or until Monday, like they said in their post.  Of course, you already knew that since you read the thread before deciding to post I'm sure.

Thanks for your dedication to this project. I'd like to request a new load balancing option. 1 device per pool. I'm concerned about pool stability once ASICs start rolling out.

From my experience with cgminer, load-balance and balance do not really distribute work evenly across pools. I'd like to define a list of 10 pools, and each device mines solely on one of the pools in that list. If one of the pools fails, the device attached will move on to the next pool in the list.

Thanks!

This can already be done just by running multiple instances of CGminer.  While it's not the most elegant solution, it is far easier than asking Con to add or rewrite code.

What's being done to protect the assets of your users if the feds launch a full frontal attack against Seals?

I'm not sure why this should even be an issue.  I don't walk out of a casino and leave my chips with the cashier, why would you leave SWC without withdrawing your BTC?  Just like everything else in the BTC world, the responsibility of protecting the bitcoins is no ones except the user's.  I personally feel that anyone that leaves their BTC in anyone elses control should expect them to be stolen.
15  Bitcoin / Pools / Re: [ANN] CoinLab Protected Pool - Now with PPS Bonuses up to 200% on: November 14, 2012, 01:10:23 AM
200% for the next block (207833)!

May this block go on forever.  Wink

Florida also lets you keep a loaded gun in your car without a permit. As long as it's holstered or in something with a lid.


Well, not exactly.  It's basically referred as the 3-step rule.  It must take 3 distinctive steps to bring the firearm to a fire-able state.  The 3 separate step are not specified, as long as it can be reasonably conceived as 3 steps.  Having it loaded, within arms reach (under the seat, etc) is totally illegal.

For me the 3 steps are, remove from glovebox, load the clip, chamber a round.

Why are you guys still messing with MtRed?  It's horribly unreliable, the web site and mining portal go down constantly.
By the time OP gets the site running reliably mining won't even be profitable any more.


What you talkin' about willis?




Stats add up... That's all that matters... If the site only works once per week, so be it.... I guess I like the colors Smiley

Yeah, who the cares about a portal?  I don't sit around all day watching my BTC count in a portal go up by .0000001 every few minutes.  I could care less as long as the PPS rates stay high and the payouts come as expected (which they have been).  I mine to make BTC, not to look at pretty colored charts.  I honestly don't think I've even gone to the portal in a few weeks.

By "portal" I meant the actual mining URL.  Actual mining, not just the web site, were very unreliable during my trial period after which I gave up.

Regarding "stats add up" which stats are you referring to?

They continue to use it because they can set their donation to 0% and get 100% PPS, and then come to the forums and bitch when a service they don't pay for has a problem.
18  Bitcoin / Pools / Re: [ANN] CoinLab Protected Pool - Now with PPS Bonuses up to 200% on: November 13, 2012, 02:40:51 PM
Veteran's Day was yesterday, so quite a few businesses are closed today here in the US.  So I wouldn't read to much into no forum activity from CoinLab today.

But this is a pretty good example of why I am a firm believer in automatic payouts.

Okay, I posted that yesterday.  Didn't really expect a payout on what was a federal holiday.  But seriously CoinLab, I happen to be a U. S. Military Veteran and I did work yesterday, the least you guys could have done was log in and throw up a post to let people know what was going on.  This is the sort of thing that causes unnecessary anxiety for the pool users, and those who are considering using CoinLab.

I was thinking the same, that the hashrate was the effective hashrate, not the total.  If this is the case, both need to be shown.
