I've been mining in deepbit since they opened but all of the downtime lately has been killing me. What is the best pool to switch to at this time?

Honestly, all the major pools are facing problems due to DDOS and unexpected growth.  Best advice is not to put all your resources into a single one.  Setup multiple miners to separate pools so if one does fail you aren't down to zero hashes.  I thought I was done with deepbit too until the next pool I chose (btcguild) went down a few days later.  Now I run both.

Exactly the same thing I've done, I connect and miner for both now.  If one goes down, my minuscule amount of Mh/sec just goes up for the other.

I'm currently mining at such a small MHash/sec you would piss your pants laughing at me!

I recommend BTCGuild.com.  They run 4 servers right now, and are expected to add two more this weekend.

What I did was setup https://github.com/cdhowie/Bitcoin-mining-proxy, and point all my workers there.

On the mining proxy setup each of BTCGuild.com's IPs as separate pools.  I setup the FL and CA as priority 10 and the GB and NL as priority 5 (I'm in central US).  Then if any pool has any issues they bounce around until there's one that's working.  I've been mining for days even with the issues last few days with no problems on my end, or no idle miners.

You can also add a secondary pool to the list if you like - maybe solo or whatever.

Hope this helps.

i use BTCmine.com

This account was a fraudulent account created by a girl in Melbourne, Australia. There is no point messaging this account, continue with reversing all paypal transactions.

I've also started mining at mineco.in.  Very low participation at this time, I've heard it takes a few days to break a block, but that means more payout for wimpy machines like mine.

I'm currently mining at such a small MHash/sec you would piss your pants laughing at me!
