are they missing a mining pool, or have more people gone independent?

According to NIST and ECRYPT II, the cryptographic algorithms used in Bitcoin are expected to be strong until at least 2030. (After that, it will not be too difficult to transition to different algorithms.)

BTCMine did a software upgrade and apparently the JSON interface they had is not being consumed by Bitcoin Watch (or the interface changed) ... not sure whether Bitcoin Watch needs to do something or BTCMine does, I suspect the former.  That accounts for a pie slice a little larger than BTC Guild.

I want to know just who these Others are?HuhHuh?  Are they pushing the button every 108 minutes???   Are they going to attack us and take our bitcoins?

Small friendly pools and solo miners.

More likely, the site is wildly inaccurate about the aggregate hashing speed, as it always is after a difficulty change, and it just subtracts the published hashing speeds of the various known pools from the horribly inflated global estimate and concludes that "other" is doing a lot of work.

I bet it'll look normal again in a day or two.

It is based on JSON data from the pools and everything else is "other".  Pretty simple.

A bit smaller than BTC Guild actually Smiley.

The point is still valid though, some pools have been attacked/had downtime lately, which removes them from the pie chart temporarily.  Reloading bitcoinwatch's pie chart right now shows Other roughly the size of BTC Guild / BTCMine.

Deepbit is and has been up for awhile at well over 1TH/s, but they were not represented on the pie chart and thus were lumped in with other.  The chart is NOT wildly inaccurate and in fact it is precisely accurate [as of the time sample they use to generate the chart anyway].  But, if they aren't consuming the JSON data or the JSON data is not available from a pool, then the processing power generated by pools not represented falls under "other".  What would you expect them to put there?  I see deepbit is back there now and "other" is precisely reduced accordingly.

Let's get real and let this thread die a timely death.
