Anyone else using the little ASIC's have one that puts out way more hardware errors then the rest?  I have 9 in an Anker USB 3.0 hub and after 24 hours most of them show 40-60 errors but one of them is showing over 800 errors.  I know what one it is, I've removed it and looked it over and I couldn't see any type of damage.  I've tried plugging it in different ports in the hub but its always giving more errors then the rest.

I have a second batch of miners in an Airtech hub and they all show about the same amount of hardware errors, not one of them stands out like that other one.


Maybe I just have a runt in the group?


Oh, and if your looking for other places to get these miners, I've ordered a couple from bitcanary.com right now.  They only cost .37 btc there, I'll let you all know if I have any issues with them.

mine average 1% error. ranging .6%-1.6%
seeing how asic eruptors are plummeting nearing $30 each now, I would just plug it in and ignore it.

Are we mining the already found block?

Slush's stat page shows that we are mining 254832, however according to BTC Guild, this was already found by them:
19306   254832   2013-08-29 08:23:07 PM   8c7866382409677faee120b9c26bda0221a850fe9bfb3b6317496a927247c8ae   25.01180001

This is consistent with blockchain.info

Is that why we are stuck for more than 8 hours?  "barking up the wrong tree"?!

no slush pool hasnt adjusted that stat yet. it is normal especially on long blocks

A few days ago I changed my difficulty settings up to 5 for several of my miners, after changing it back to 1 the next day my Stratum proxy still shows the difficulty of 5.

I have tried the usual miner and proxy restarts several times.

Any ideas anyone? Need to set the difficulty back to 1 for my slower miners.

Thanks.

I understand that but thought there might be some other factor going on (been out of town for the last two weeks so haven't been keeping up on bitcoin news). Never seen difficulty hit this fast, last week there was seeing 16-25 blocks a day. Then again there is always the randomness of it all. Thanks for your reply.

What process takes place behind 100 confirmations counting down to zero when earnings become confirmed. I joined a different pool for a couple of days but there was no such thing there.
I'm back to slush for the fact that it is so simple... and I've gotten a lot of support here.

The process is just waiting for other blocks to be generated, to make sure the block found by the pool is part of the (longest) valid chain and not an orphaned fork.
The pool operator has to decide how much risk to take, some pay right away and hope its valid, some count down without displaying (and have the earnings show as unconfirmed reward, too).

Some pools even pay for invalid blocks too. So they needn't worry about confirmation. Of course they are pools with different payout methods then Slush's.

I don't know for sure, but i suspect that difficulty numbers are powers of 2, except for 1, ie 1, 2, 4, 8, 16...
 5 is probably 4 in actuality. But I could be wrong, this is just a guess on my part. I'm sure someone who actually knows will correct me if i'm wrong. I get corrected a lot... Tongue

No. Smiley
65750060 for example is no power of 2.
Besides, 1 is a power of 2, its 2^0.

You are saying that current "Difficulty" is the same as pool difficulty? I guess i can see this, but then we are returning a lot of unusable numbers as proof of work.

It's the law of averages, has nothing to do with lately. If "good" luck is 120% one day, then it will adjust with less luck on other days.

Percentage of network needs to be maintained for "equal" payout.

Actually, the law of averages isn't really a law, it is more of a suggestion or belief. A coin toss has a 50/50 chance, even if heads came up 500 time in a row previously.
