uhm invalid blocks happen because they are orphaned or someone else was first, not much can be done to resolve this Tongue

Better connected/faster servers reduce it a lot.  3 orphans in 24 hours is seems extremely high given the size of the pool.  Orphan rates should be <1%.  Obviously a given sample may have much more than 1% just due to lack of # of rounds being evaluated.  Maybe organofcorti can shed some light on the probabilities.

EDIT:  2 of the 3 orphans were never even seen by Blockchain.info...that points to serious server issues.  These blocks were either never broadcast, or were broadcast well after the prior block (meaning no connected peers accepted it and rebroadcasted).  The timestamp on 265441 was more than 1 minute after the competing block was seen by Blockchain.info.  The timestamp on 265419 was almost 4 minutes after.  This may not be the real delay due to ntime rolling/slush's poold configuration/where the table get it's timestamp from.  But those are both blocks that were not even seen by the rest of the network apparently.

Yeah, none of them show up on my log. 

No clue what happened with those... from what I've seen over the last 18 months or so, Slush very rarely gets orphans.

I did notice this:

this earlier block is more like it usually is:

Anybody has problem enabling payout address protection by two-factor authentication? I've tried more than once but still I get invalid token?

sorry if already answered but I've just skimmed through the last 5 pages and I didn't find anything.

I couldn't get it to work, I don't have a smart phone. Tongue

don't use google auth, there are plenty of other solutions that implement two-factort auth Tongue

That invalid was a classic block race orphan, something that's very hard to get rid of.  BTC Guild probably found the block first (blockchain.info saw it 2 seconds before it saw slush's block).  Due to the geographic distance (Chicago -> EU), this is a type of orphan you can't do much about.

Can anyone help me out with a BTC loan of 0.1 ?

I need that to take advantage of a sale thats happening, and can pay back within a week.

If anyone can help with even a small amount, I can pay back with interest! Smiley

and this time blockchain.info don't even know about the existence of the the block: "Block Not Found"

do you think that this is common issue across pools these days or a slush specific one?

At least this one was only 9 mins, some of the others were over 1 hour.
It would be better if the pool could identify a bad block early in the process and then dump it.

sure if possible it would be amazing.

on another note to balance this high number of invalid blocks it seems we're finding blocks like there's no tomorrow, maybe those two facts are correlated.
