I noticed I found a block today but it did not get attributed to any worker.  It shows up on the list of blocks found but the worker totals did not change.  I don't think it matters but just an indication of some kind of bug.

Thanks for the block, bro.

Do you even mine?

19114   2013-07-16 04:28:05   2:46:01   40666603   258   0.00000000   246804   25.16075027    94 confirmations left ??

What's your hashing power?
Your shares are very low, like ~100 MH/s.
But maybe your power is higher and you've stopped mining before the round end? The round took 2 3/4 hours, if you haven't been mining in last say 30 min, you get plain zero.
(If you'd have been mining for the whole time, you'd get about 0.15 mBTC, but with really high variance.)
I stop mining because of a storm and yes I am just using a 6870 so I get around 200mh/s nothing amazing.

If your normal rate is about 200 and shares count says 100, you must have stopped at about half the round duration. That means, you'd been out of mining for more than 80 minutes when the block has been found.
According to the formula for score calculation, after 80 minutes of inactivity your last shares have roughly 10-5 times less value than your new shares would have. In other words, your score decreases roughly by this factor in the 80 minutes. If you would deserve some 0.3 mBTC for one block with your 200 MH/s rate, after 80 minutes it looks more like 3*10-8 BTC, i.e. 3 Satoshi. :-)
This calculation supposes the original 300 seconds value of the time costant for the shares' score. When assuming 200 secs that some member posted here as his own research, the factor moves further to the order of 10-10 and your reward to ~10-13 BTC, which means plain zero for you...

  • You can make these calculations for yourself, it's not difficult at all.
  • Next time, you may be more lucky jumping into a round in its half and obtaining full refund in the end, for the same reason.

Wow the extra hashing is sure helping in finding blocks and the big transaction fee for #19130 was nice as well

holy pool luck batman. this is what i like waking up to. ^_^

ha, just noticed that my unconfirmed rewards are currently higher than my 7-day average. (usually unconfirmed sits around 1/4-1/3 the average)

Let's try some simple calculation again. :-)
Confirmation of one block takes 100 new blocks to wait for.
Finding one block should take 10 minutes at average.
So confirmation should take (100 * 10 = 1000) minutes,
that is about 16 hours. So one's unconfirmed reward
should be his reward for last 16 hours,  thus about 2/3 of
average day's reward when luck is average (100 %).

So 1/3 of average daily reward (or even less) looks quite small to me.

Short term - it's all about luck
Long Term - Higher hashrate = more blocks found

Go figure we have a blockbuster day, 1 day before I get my shipment of 5 more Block Erupters...  BOOO!

true, but at the same time i don't mine 24 hours a day. It could just be that I tend to check my stats at the same time each day, and that specific time each day may not be an accurate point of reference for an overall average (because my mining operation time is not actually 24 hours.) of course theoretically the ratio u gave should remain true, overall. it's certainly possible I under-averaged, especially given that these last few days have been under-average... heh.

being OVER the 7-day average is still pretty sweet either way Cheesy

It sure is. :-)
I just like to verify particular statements and hypotheses by calculation (if it's not too complicated).
That way I can also verify my ideas (and build new ones) about how the whole thing works.
Should I be mistaken, someone can correct me...  :-)
And in the end, the information may be useful to somebody.

remember when the Pool was around 12,000 gh/s! OMG!
great 2 months of mining and an XFX card has a bad fan... cheaper for me to get a replacement than to send it back on its lifetime warranty to be fixed OMG! haha

I wish I had the hashing power I have now, back then... I would have been raking in the coinage! or as my lovely girlfriend calls them.. "BTUs" haha

Remember when the Pool was around 9,500 gh/s... :-)

I wish I had the hashing power I have now, back then... I would have been raking in the coinage! or as my lovely girlfriend calls them.. "BTUs" haha

British Thermal Units... :-)

(For continental Europeans: 1 BTU is the amount of heat (energy) that warms up 1 pound of water by one degree Fahrenheit. :-)
Many people still remember kilocalorie: 1 kcal = amount of heat that raises the temperature of 1 kg water by 1 deg Centigrade.
BTU is then a "British kilocalorie", only it's 4 times less (0.2522 kcal). In the SI system, it's 1055 J (Joules).)

[edit]: Wolfram Alpha also says it's about 0.25 × energy released by explosion of one gram of TNT. :-)

Well BTC on GPU causes alot of BTU, the ASICs aren't so bad (although don't go grabbing a block erupter whiles its running, jesus those things get toasty). 
Of course my GF didn't know what BTUs were... She just used the wrong initials in an attempt to ask me how my mining was going. I give her credit for caring at all... part of the reason I love her  Wink .   She does, however, very much like the things I buy her with my mined "BTUs" haha...
