Over the course of today my total balance seems to have only gone up about 0.10 coins.

This is far less than usual. I usually get around 0.60 per day mining at 300mh/s.

Anyone else experiencing this?

did you check the stats to see if the pool had some really long valid block solves versus the day before?
as in a string of them.

also checking the mining forum and slush's thread may be in order.

Mining at 290MHash/s on Slush's pool, I got 0.47BTC yesterday, and on target for slightly more today. Might be worth checking you are actually still getting 300MHash/s.

If I've helped you out, donations appreciated - 1G5NuGN9D6Vax6pGfqQJqPvww1CCJQPjhe

There were a few hour and a half ones but certainly not a string of them...

Seems to be some other people reporting less profits in Slush's thread. I normally get slightly over 1 BTC every 2 days and it looks like it'll be almost an extra day before I get my 1 BTC this time.

Yes I also tried btcguild for the same result. Moved to deepbit, profits back to normal (well, almost...)

Happened yesterday, so it might have returned to normal by now...

My guess is either some pool owners are cheating to reap the last rewards during price fall or its a statistical effect.

You're posting H/s rates, but no info about how many blocks the pool solved, even in a pool there is luck involved...

I thought with a score based system like that it was supposed to be pretty regular with little variance?

Before moving I remember doing a quick check on the average round duration for past 24 hours and getting a figure much more than supposed average (which is 30 minutes). At this point I finally decided that there is definitely something fishy going on.

I might have mistyped somewhere of course .. Are there any long term statistics available anywhere or just the recent rounds?

Of course it can be caused by other factors, for example deepbit's reporting 7% more shares per block than theoretical difficulty. so it could be just a randomness. but still deepbit's superior hashing power delivers much less statistical variance...

I think the solution to 51% problem is not moving away from the large pools but to implement new methods of mining, like the one cuddlefish suggested, too bad bitcoin developers are too conservative for such effort. Not to mention pool owners who probably will also resist any change...

NOPE, Score is the quite the same as proportional but weighting late answers better than earlier ones. What you meant is called pay per share.

it's still based on luck, just with a pool the dice are rolled a bunch more times a day than solo.
being based on luck, profits will vary.
