          BitMiner



          Beta 4 Released

          New pools, Lots of BugFixes, and a new installer!

          Installer has everything you need! Just install, run. And then sit back and mine Wink



          Support channel created! #bitminer-support on freenode.
          Beta 3 released!!
          VERSION 0.2: FAILOVER SUPPORT & CUSTOM POOLS ADDED!
          and miner bugfixes Tongue

          Current Support:
          Pools:
          • DeepBit
          • Slush's Pool
          • BTCGuild
          • BTCMiner
          • Eligius
          • OzCoin
          Miners:
          • poclbm





          Step 1: Go to Accounts tab, and setup an account.
          Step 2: Go to the miners tab (in this case poclbm), select the account you want to use, and configure the arguments.
          Step 3: Hit mine! Sit back and relax



          Stats page from v3.






          Images from v1.2


          There a bit of debugging code i've left in (such as writing all of the output from the miner to log.log), but this shouldn't affect use.
          Remember this is only BETA, it's pretty plain at the moment, but there should be alot more to come in the future Smiley



          Future plans:
          • Failover support
          • Statistics Page
          • Add more pools
          • Graphing features
          • Fan Controls
          • GPU Monitoring
          • JSON interface with pools
          • Add support for most miners (phoenix, diablo etc.)
          • Add JSON-RPC server

          It has taken me a while a long time, to write this up and stuff, so if you use it and like it, please donate Smiley
          On the other hand, if you have a great idea that I think is worth something, I might send you some bitcents Cheesy

          Is this any more or less efficient than just using Ubuntu to mine?

          I forgot to mention, it's C#, and i've only tested on windows at the moment, on windows it might be SLIGHTLY less effecient, as there is a little overhead from .NET, but barely enough to be noticeably. If enough people donate, i'll get it to work with Mono/Wine.

          It's .NET, shouldn't be too hard to get.

          Looks like this has been created using WPF, which is a bad idea. WPF uses directx9 to render its contents, and everytime you update your screen (external redraw event, or updating the counter to display the mhash) opencl is suspended.

          There are ways to fix this though, although you will never get a really optimal solution using .net (or windows for that matter).

          No, it's windows forms, and that is somewhat true.

          Yes, i know i have a shitty gpu:

          Running poclbm from cmd gets me: ~15850kh/s
          Running poclbm from BitMiner gets me: ~15800kh/s

          As you can see there is very little difference (remember thats in kh/s, not even mh/s) between running it from the command line, or from the gui.

          I think you think it's WPF because it's using aero, you will be able to disable that in the next version (not that it make much difference now), but if you want to disable it at the moment, go into properties (BitMiner.exe) and disable visual themes (under compatibility).

          Can you actually save multiple account "profiles"? Host, login, PW, port?

          You can save multiple profiles with different pools and different logins (user + pass), but not host or port, they're hardcoded to pools, if theres enough interest (none at the moment :| ) i'll release version 2 with a stack of new features including custom pools

          I'm sure your program is totally legit (especially since you're providing the source), but with the way bitcoins are rising in cost (up to like seventeen bucks apiece now!) I'm sure it's only a matter of time before someone releases a "helper program" that submits 90% of the shares to the target pool, and a hidden 10% to the program author's secret pool...

          ... hmm, that gives me an idea... think I'll start learning VB  Wink

          Ha, good luck with that. VB is way less powerful than C#, and it's easily reversable, so you'll probably ruin your rep haha. And i'm not actually providing the source as such, but seeing as it's .NET you can easily use .NET reflector or something to decompile it to C# and then read it and such.

          I'll PM the code to you if you want, It's just anyone with the know how to read the code should know that .NET is easily reflectable. So I didn't post the code because some skid might rip it off, but if everyone think's I should, and it means more people will use it, i will.

          I've just reflected the code, and it's completely safe.
          The only thing to comment on would be how the code looks. Though since .NET Reflector is pretty good at decompiling good code in to hard to read code, I'd have to leave that uncommented until I can see the actual source code.
