If you're looking for a cheap LCD to use with the pi, I've actually used these LCDs with an arduino but would be a good general status display for minepeon or whatever. Can't beat six bucks for a serial TFT

 http://www.ebay.com/itm/1-8-Serial-SPI-TFT-LCD-Module-Display-PCB-Adapter-Power-IC-SD-Socket-128X160-/370677515951?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item564e1a06af

There are bigger ones for more money, but I haven't tried them

http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-2-8-Inch-240-x-320-DOTS-Touch-TFT-LCD-Display-Module-SPI-Interface-ILI9320-/310610762220?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4851d819ec

They look ideal, unfortunately no shipping to NZ Sad .

Neil
They ship to AU, I can forward one on to you if you like..

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin-Qt, but full nodes are more resource-heavy, and they must do a lengthy initial syncing process. As a result, lightweight clients with somewhat less security are commonly used.

So does this new version resolve previous issues with USB 3.0 hubs?
That's an issue with CGMiner, so I don't think it's anything this distro can fix.

Damn... What USB hubs are people using?  I need to power several USB Block Eruptors... I plan on ordering more, but the one hub most people seem to recommend is USB 3.0.  The ones I do find that look reasonable and are 2.0 when I run the numbers cant power nearly as many miners as they have ports for.  Currently I am using some belkin 4 port hubs that can each power two units I fond at the dollar store... they work but I want something good for when I expand!

I used a 7 port Rosewill hub from Newegg, it uses NEC chips and works well.

I modified it to use a more powerful DC supply. All you need to do is cut the wire and splice it into a better PSU. Then short or upgrade the diodes that pass the power to the circuit inside the hub.

I've used this 10-port Rosewill hub: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182257

Powers 5 erupters and the Pi itself, without any issues.

Well I do use a USB3.0 hub, but I'm using BFL equipment, not those Block Erupters.

Another possible suggestion / request:

Could the version and/or release date be added to the web ui header bar (where it has graphs, pools, settings, etc), say, on the right side?

+1 on the miner stats on the graphs page!  Nice work!  tacked on another 5 minutes to the donation time.  Smiley

Edit:  Just had another thought right after I hit post.  How about a 'Versions' page that would list the Minepeon version along with the included cgminer and bfgminer versions?  Just a thought to toss around.

Thanks for the donation time, I keep checking the ozcoin donation account via ozbot and haven't caught any active mining so far (but it's great knowing that there are those out there chipping in =).  As far as a "Versions" page, I am updating the wiki whenever possible (lol in between chemo, school, work and moving; but I expect the wiki to be fully revamped no later than the first week of July - which is a very conservative est. since I have until the end of the month to move out and my final assignment is due this Saturday aka that's half of what's holding me up out of the way) and will add this information to each release, it will be up to Neil if he wants to include this information in the distro though.

Edit: Clarification of why it seems like I'm dragging my feet (well because technically I am but not for long).

P.S. - Very nice Morblias, I hope you will post updated pictures and information somewhere on the forum as your build progresses.  I actually have a small shipment of LCD-TFT panels that I will convert to work natively with the Pi (the most obvious solution would be to create a LVDS adapter, although as this would require the top of the Pi to be exposed - and some people really like their cases - I might go the extra mile and have it use the HDMI or CVBS [RCA video] output; we'll see).

While sitting on hold with my local shipping agent yesterday just for fun I setup a JSON feed from the MinePeon donation address.  Today (while sitting on hold with the same shipping agent) I have produced some interesting (read useless) stats;-

5min average hashrate(MH/s) = 827.92

5min avg MH/s per timezone

TZ  5Min MH/s
00     546.92 #####
01          0
02      28.92
03          0
04    4263.83 ###########################################
05     295.08 ###
06      50.92 #

22    1797.25 ##################
23     676.33 #######

Some (incorrect) conclusions we can derive from this data;-

MinePeon is being donated the equivalent of nearly 3 Block Eruptor USB sticks making just over .02 BTC a day (Thanks guys and Gals).

There is someone mining in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean and in the Tasman Sea (on a boat perhaps?Huh).

Europeans have under half the hashrate of Americans.

US East Coasters have over twice the hashpower of US West Coasters.

Despite what we have been lead to believe there is close to no mining going on at all in Asia.

The Australian hashrate is pitiful. (Typical Ozies, get off your asses and do something!)

New Zealanders have the largest hashrate in the World!!  (We are so cool)

Creviates;-

This data if only for the past 24 hours.

Daylight savings is not accounted for.

MinePeon is shipped with the New Zealand timezone set as default.

Looking to send a missile? Tongue

No, I have no coordinates, what I was refering to was this line;-

TZ  5Min MH/s
02      28.92

All that really means is that someone has set their timezone to Atlantic time (UTC +2) or someone was setting up their rig at that moment and had not put their own pool address in (it mines using the donation address until you put your own pool in).

As I said, the data is actually fairly useless and does not really mean much.  There is no way I could identify anyone with it, I just did it for fun while on the phone.

Brazil, Greenland, Uruguay, and a few tiny islands. There's also a UTC-2:30, not sure which category that would fall under in the stats.

EDIT: was it this?

Mine is configured for UTC+1... I know that I only hash @ 670MHash/s with my RPI, but why is it 0?

Hmm, your timezone says;-

01          0

Do you guys have daylight savings?

On another note, since I posted those stats it seems that EVERYONE in the US has turned off their donation so it seems that something is wrong at ozcoin or the Americans don't think MinePeon is work the $2 USD a day it was making Tongue .

I don't know if I have daylight savings ON @ the RPI, as I can't access that feature with MinePeon. Proof of not hashing for me for 15 minutes, @ Triplemining.com:

Are you going to do a upgrade to include cgminer 3.3.1 and "Stats" at upper black menu?

Hi Neil , Polyatomic here

                                Does the miner on minepeon have to restart ~every 10 hours or so . It might be a coincidence but the miner has just restarted when I login through putty after work or when I get up in the morning to check. Maybe its not getting enough power ? .
