My intention is not to stir anything up here but I'm really curious what's going on with the network. 

http://www.bitcoinwatch.com/

Graphs show a steadily enlarging "Other" group of mining capacity over the last week and a quickly climbing overall hash rate.  Given the shortage of decent GPU's at the moment I'm really wondering who is bringing such amounts of capacity to the network. 

Anyone care to speculate?

Sometimes a pool makes changes or their front end goes down which affects their hash rate reporting to the website that hosts this graph. At the time of your posting BTC Guild, which accounts for 1,478.82 GH/s of the network hash rate, is not being shown on the graph. The way the graph works, other will "increase" when one of the pools reporting is missing.

Ahh yes...  I completely missed that btcguild down/missing from the graph. 

Even taking that into consideration the amount of the network specified as "other" has been growing quickly over the last week.

And rapidly shrinking over the last two months.

The Other piece of the pie looks pretty small to me. What is interesting is the size of deepbit has shrunk pretty significantly

That list does not include BitClockers ~50Ghash

maybe that is to be added to the "Other"

Nothing to see here, that large jump in "other" was simply us switching on our pool @ http://pool.bitp.it  Grin

The hashrate for "other" on that page you linked to changes a LOT from hour to hour. My guess is that as pools have problems (server issues, code issues, DDOS attacks, etc) people switch their clients to solo mining. Later, when the pools are back up again the people switch back to the pools. Total network hashrate is stay at or under 7Thash/s, so there isn't a ton of new mining capacity coming online into the "other" category.

I've been on slush's pool since starting mining but I think I'll move elsewhere.  Its been down for most of today and actively costing money by losing mining time.  Every now and then my miners can connect, so I assume it's a DDoS.
