Last night the blocks/h rate was 9.08

Now it's 7.74.

You'd think it would be the opposite -- more hashing going on during the day.

Maybe it's lower because some people using their main machine for a mining rig, and some GPU/CPU is taken during the day for "actual work" -- plus some gamers reluctantly click the red "X" on their mining app so they can play games for an hour or two...

First bitcoin is global and it is always night somewhere. Secondly most places power is cheaper at night and cooling is easier.

It might be night somewhere at all times, but apparently Bitcoin is very America-centric and more mining happens at night (Or, it's very Asia-centric and most mining happens during the day).

You can't say it's all a wash, or there would be steady mining figures 24 hours a day.

bitcoin usage appears to be heavily slanted to north america and western europe.  there's few users in asia, and plus you've got the big pacific ocean with practically no one.

This is because the Russians DDOS the pools at night so they can increase their bitcoin mining while everyone sleeps.
