We lost WETSUIT...he is over to help Kano get a block...
I'm sure he's enjoying that, schadenfreude and all that.

But it's not like I can force people to mine here. He dropped off with the datacentre outage and never came back. Not sure if it's just a failover mechanism that has to be manually switched back or whether he's had enough and gone running - which is unlike what he had said in the past about mining here. He constitutes over 85% of the current hashrate so his hashrate would be sorely missed, though he'll still get a massive reward on our next block find, whenever that is.

Hopefully he/she comes back.  It's sad seeing the Thread renamed to 0PH but I guess on the bright side it should be easier to move up on getting paid if we find another couple of blocks.  tbh I'm here more as a hobby than to get paid at this point.  I need more hashing power...lol

Did they have a good story of why? One time a snow plow took out the data center at our local college for about 12 hours by crashing into a telephone pole. 
Nope, I'm afraid not. Still awaiting an explanation, somewhere from Cogent, not my hosting provider.

I've been playing around with the website and flask to see if I could build something. It's only a start...

http://35.196.38.106/
Thanks for that. I hate to tell you this, but it's funny, someone else has already been working on an interface and they've made more good progress so I don't want to see you duplicate work. Hold off doing anything else with it as hopefully I should have something to put up soon.
This? http://ckpool.org/test.html
No, not that. Much more featured.

sorry guys, MRR switched my rigs to kano during the outage and never switched back and i didn't even know about it. just noticed the hash rate drop now and had to switch the rigs back manually.

Thanks, just noticed the new merit thingy. I'll set up a script to monitor my hash and notify me so that hopefully this doesn't happen again.

I'm in the same boat. Hobbyist, but jonesing for more hashing power.

So how does one obtain 5+PH? Like I mentioned, I'm a hobbyist and the fastest stand-alone miner I've seen does about 14TH/s. Do they have a warehouse with hundreds or thousands of S9s on shelves? Are there other industrial mining machines?

well could be a warehouse of gear

or rental gear.

MMR

and  Nicehash   rent gear to miners

I mine alt coins with https://simplemining.net...
I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

I got sick of watching the diff numbers go up. I rented 13.5TH for 14 hours. Come on, block. Block block block.

Measels, Mumps and Rubella. Haha

MRR is Mining Rig Rentals.

I like using MRR, even though I don't rent out my miners, because it gives good historical data on my hash rate and such.

Guys just note that MRR has their management proxy setup to failover without priority (or one that I can't see). Thus once you get disconnected or have a socket failure with a pool, it will switch to the next available one and they don't seem to revert back to the higher priority pool once it comes back online. It's a huge pain when it gets disconnected and there is need to reset the pool lists for each miner.

For anyone looking to monitor the pool and their workers, you can consider either writing your own code or cron job to poll the server else you can just signup for a monitor service like http://www.monitis.com/ or https://www.pingdom.com/ etc and configure it to read the JSON and read the worker number at regular intervals at the stats page that has been setup by CK http://ckpool.org/users/xxxxxxxxxx

@CK last thing, the subdomain name is a bit of a pain to remember and will cause more questions here for sure once people start using it more. Eg currently:

Website:
Pool = pool.ckpool.org - OK
Solo = solo.ckpool.org - OK

Stratum Server:
Pool = pool.ckpool.org - OK
Solo = solo.ckpool.org - OK

Stats Page:
Pool = ckpool.org - EH?
Solo = pool.ckpool.org & solo.ckpool.org - Both pulls our the same stats.

Not sure if it's just me cos I am mining on both or is this universal and will cause confusion to some. Just my humble suggestion.

I'm doing some minor maintenance on the pool code and will be restarting the pool within the next hour for the updates. Hopefully there should be minimal downtime all going well.

EDIT: I won't be around long enough after the restart to ensure everything's okay so I'll hold off till tomorrow at least.

Hi, I just moved from mining at Slush to the ckpool mining at around 500GH/s using a BFL Monarch (about to add another).

Was wondering if there was any major profitability differences from this ckpool, kano pool and slush over lets say a few months?

I know that the payout rate is much less but that should average out reward over time. This would mean mainly the changes in difficulty and lack of fees should really effect it the overall profitability.

Instead of posting in a different forum, I want to ask here because I intend to add more hashing power to this pool.

Irrelevant of where you are buying your cloud mining (Nicehash, MRR, Etc.) from, what range (in either BTC/TH/DAY or /BTC/PH/DAY) of purhcase price do you consider valuable today?  Also, what is the max you would consider paying for hashing power?

I have been on the bubble about getting miners that can actually provide worthwhile hashing capacity (my U1 has been good to get familiar with the basics of getting going, but will never produce anything valuable), and with the little bit of BTC I have now, I would consider putting it with MRR, but want to make sure that if I do that I'm not buying hashpower at a rate that would not provide a ROI to re-invest back into more hash power here.

Unlike so many of the other new pool members who have been looking for the easy hand out of info from CK and the other senior memebers, I am totally on board with the process here, and can wait for the payouts, I need to dig some more on the pricing of rented power. Getting feedback from the people doing it just makes sense.

Here's to some Block Luck!

There is no magical way to change mining profitability, it comes down to fees and luck. The fee here is zero. The luck I have no control over. All I can do to offset any other issues where losses occur is minimise the risk of block orphans and never mine empty blocks, which I've put great effort into doing.

Is that just this pool (pool.ckpool.org) ,  or is solo (solo.ckpool.org) also included.

Just want to know since solo is my backup and if both going down, I will probably add a third to rig just in case down for awhile and at least I can keep hashing during updates.


Thanks
Ron
