as the us server of eligius is currently down, I was thinking about what the best way is to implement a load balancer.
I thought the easiest way would be to start 2 mining tools on 2 different pools. The hashrate per miner would then equally distributed on two pools, but as one pool goes offline, the hashrate on the other pool would then go to 100%.
Is there anything wrong with that approach. Are there any other advantages of multiple mining (I currently only have one gpu) or am I missing something and that is actually a really bad idea?
