With the current run of "bad luck" at Slush I've decided to move my miners over to solo at ckpool
Current setup is 2 S3 and 1 SP20

Stats are here: http://solo.ckpool.org/users/19cozCnR7RknZtAqtziyTW2xZyX9edj5td

Let's see what the last couple of weeks of 2015 bring lol

Best share so far 2954252 but only been mining for 2 hours

Good luck. Be prepared to not get anything for a few months xD

Why'd you join slush? They really don't seem to be mining very many blocks... Id personally recommend Antpool, they seem to be doing me justice.

Best of luck though,

Good luck.  I look forward to seeing how do!  As mentioned it may be months before you find anything (or never).  Or it might be days.

I'd love to see the smaller folks hit a block!

I wish there was a solution that was easy to mine at your own solo pool?  Maybe I'm too dumb?  Tried reading about it, but can't figure it out.  What would be really cool is if you could do it with usb miners.

You can point it to ck solo pool (stratum+tcp://solo.ckpool.org:3333) and you are mining solo.  You just set the miner worker to your personal bitcoin address and if you solve the share to hit a block you get 99.5% of the 25 BTC block to yourself.

I was trying to say I wish there was a solution to get 100% of the solo block.

Well, any 'other' solution will require you to setup and configure a well connected and fast configuration and you WILL expect to get more orphans than at solo.ckpool.org
So, as long as you are happy to have a much higher risk of losing the block, by all means setup your own solo mining, or mine solo some other way.

Note, however, you should always be running a full node at home to keep supporting bitcoin.

Wonder why a large pool is far superior?  I thought my cable internet was fairly good.

you could have high quality network.  but you need to mine your gear at a high quality server.

So lets say you point 5 s-7's at solo.ckpool  that is 25th

in house  you would need to run a fast internet 50gb down 25gb up  would be minimum.

You need to run a pc as your server 24/7/365  lets say you run a cheap piece of gear it costs power.  say a mac mini with 16gb ram and an ssd sized 250gb. an older 2012 with an i5 is about  600 usd to own and will cost you about 1 kwatt a day or  3 bucks  a month to run. 

you also need the net not to drop out since your provider will know you run a node for btc purposes.

So your startup to be independent is 500 or more for the pc and 36 to 100 a year in power  and of course a rock solid net connection.

I guess you can do it that way.

I mine alt coins with https://simplemining.net...
I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

Don't forget that by default bitcoind is not that good at detecting block changes rapidly and is not optimised for mining. Solo ckpool has a heavily code customised coin daemon and setup that detects and manages block changes much faster decreasing the wasted hashes you perform on a block change and minimising the risk of a found block being orphaned. On benchmarks, solo has the fastest block changes of any full block verification mining pool. A home bitcoind could potentially be up to 15 seconds behind which is hugely wasteful as is evidenced by some of the older pools and their terrible block change performance (eg. ghash and emc).

It appears the original poster has stopped mining solo and once again this thread has turned into a way for refspammers to increase their post count so I'm locking the thread and removing the useless posts unless the opening poster wishes to unlock it again.
