a Diff 65750061/1 share will find a block
Pools distribute Diff1 shares historically to give miners something easier to work on and to count so miners can be paid - now that pools distribute variable difficulty shares (higher for faster miners) they usually convert back to diff1 for counting shares and paying miners

https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Difficulty

Pools do not distribute shares.
You find shares and send them to the pool.
Difficulty does not effect how long it takes to calculate the hash, you dont get "something easier to work on", you just dont have to calculate that many hashes before one fits given diff.

Your miners calculate hundreds of thousands of hashes per second. Those match a certain difficulty (and all lower ones).
You choose a diff and send all hashes matching at least that diff as shares to the server.
You tell the server which number is yours, and based on that the server can calculate your hashing power.

If you set a higher diff in the pool config, your miners will do exactly what they did before, they will not calculate more or less or easier tasks or anything.
Your mining client will just send less of your hashes to the pool, and they will be rated higher.

The pool suggests a difficulty of 64 for ASICS running 60 - 120 GH/s.  I would think that the difficulty could be set much higher than 64.  Maybe the purpose is to submit many shares to smooth out the variance?  I am not sure how this number is chosen.  I noticed on one pool I set it very low by mistake and I hardly had any earnings.

So what you're saying then is that the 1/1 shares have value at the cost of devaluation of the higher rated shares?

Im having issues connecting to the pool. It was fine, but I needed to reboot, and upon reboot it would say "Pool 1 is hiding work"

I tried both stratum and non stratum in BFGminer.

sorry "Pool 1 is hiding block contents from us"

I'm not one for donations but if you must go ahead and I will keep you in mind. =)

And is it mining?  Nearly ALL the pools give that error message.  It doesn't keep you from mining.

If you get stuff like this after that message

    [2013-09-02 12:12:04] Accepted c9fa67f8 ICA 0  pool 0 Diff 1/1

then you're mining.  A lot more help can be found at https://bitcointalk.org/?topic=168174.

I am not quite sure i get what you are saying, but probably: yes.
If you submit 1-shares, you will submit more shares to the server, but they will give you less score.
If you set the diff higher, you will submit less shares, but they will score higher.
That way, your average score will always be the same.

Higher diff means more variance but less network load.

um... i have no use for namecoins, other that to convert them to bitcoins. I have the namcoin address pointing to my address on BTC-e everything was fat, dumb, and happy. the address worked ok on BTCguild. I've never had enough namecoin to pay out on Slush. Well, today, Slush pool is saying that the address isn't valid and that i sould get a namecoin client. Tongue

Any idea what is going on? Not enough namecoin to go crazy about.

Okay, that is helpful to know. I'm still wrapping my head around all of this so I appreciate the responses.

I also noticed the new namecoin warning, when using a valid address.  Is this the first glimpses of merged mining coming back to life?

Why is it that slush's pool doesn't do merged mining?  I saw the explanation about stratum, but other pools seem to use stratum and merged mining.  Different daemon or something?
