I used to mine on slush a very long time ago... Good old days.
Too bad i can't cash out the remaining 1.6 mBTC Cheesy
Minimum is set to 0.01.

It seems a bit ridiculous that the pools don't have "empty my account" options. They probably have a lot of coin sitting there if you add up all that change from everyone on the pool.
I can understand a minimum payment for regular payouts to reduce fees and network traffic.

But how about if I haven't mined for a month? - maybe there should be some sort of auto monthly payout if you have been inactive for a long while..

Pool operators need to get more transparent and more vocal as there is a lot of money involved and people seem to have only partial ability to seek out help.

I am sure the minimum will be increased (or decreased depending how you look at it) as the price of bitcoin increases.
But I agree with your sentiments.

I guess the decreasing % of hashrate distribution for slush is because of people jumping ship due to the luck going down?

A couple of days ago we had 6% of the hash rate, now its 4%

I mean its still like just under 300TH/s in the pool, but what affect will it have on luck the smaller the hashrate we have?

I've been sticking with Slush because I believe its important to have diversity across the pools but it doesn't seem to be helping.

It's not ridiculous, it's a business model allowing  pool owners to earn extra BTC. I cant imagine the amount of forsaken BTC laying around there, lower or higher than 0.01.

I believe that if you close your acount, it will cash out the remainder.

Umm.. No.. It's totally ridiculous as this is a form of stealing.
A business model that revolves around theft is still theft. (I know its fractions of pennies for now..dust.. but still..could be worth more one day.)
Ridiculous in that it is unfair, not that its not a "smart idea" for the pool owners, its just unethical.

Anyways, as Trongersoll says, you can get your remaining coins from slush by closing your account. Thats just fine then. I'll have to look into the other pools..

I need help recovering my wallet. I re-installed my Windows today and lost one of my wallets in the process because I didn't backup the private key.

However, I have private key backed up for this wallet two weeks ago. But since then I created new receiving address. Now my balance shows zero and if I create a new receiving address it is not the same as what was created before the backup.

Need help! I'm using multibit.

Keep Slush rounds short by donating to my wallet 1Pbmm1L69wNG7HaCHGLmVKzVCsq6p3UTds and also in case I actually helped someone.

I'm afraid you won't be able to recover your wallet as multibit wallet is non-deterministic (AFAIK).
However you could try scanning your HDD for deleted files using specialized software.

Stop using your computer. Now.
Give the HD to someone who can extract files from it, hoping they have not been rewritten already.

I can do some recovery work on the drive but would it help if I got my .wallet files back or do I still need the .key files?

Backup anything related to wallet. Then do recovery.

This is bad. It's a brand new Lenovo yoga and I can't even run my recovery tools on it. It's also a ssd drive. I'm screwed. I'll get a black eye when wife finds out.

The HD in the Yoga is not removable, which sucks. Did you delete all of the partitions when you did the install? If not there are apps that may help.

Drive is removable but it's msata drive. I'm just in the process of running partedmagic on this drive. The drive is now in a zotac miniPC. Here's to hoping - it will at least be a very long night for me.

I have decent access to the formatted area of the drive. Do you think this thing will attempt to pull any *.key files?

EDIT: It's all gone. Because its a very small drive, it likely got overwritten already. Tried with 3 different apps and none of them came back with any kind of wallet related file.

This article also mentioned pool luck and according to it, Slush is not that bad Smiley
http://organofcorti.blogspot.com/2013/11/november-10th-2013-weekly-pool-and.html
Code:
2. Most big pools have bad luck this week.
In order of crappiness of luck (worst luck to best luck):

                Pool Mean shares/round/difficulty  CDF
1              Itzod           1.19                0.73
2        Giga's pool           1.12                0.75
3           GHash.IO           1.11                0.96
4              Slush           1.08                0.76
5           BTCGuild           1.05                0.82
6          Bitminter           1.04                0.65
7            Eligius           0.94                0.22
8         Bitparking           0.79                0.36
9             p2Pool           0.71                0.11
10           Polmine           0.69                0.24
11           Eclipse           0.68                0.04
This means is was probably a bad luck week for the network. However, it should be noted that
the CDF for all pools were within a 95% confidence interval and so when
averaged over the week none had unusually good or bad luck.

I would definitely take this to an expert unless you are sure that you have done all that is humanly possible to recover those coins.
Experts have special ways of getting data back, but there are obviously limits.

Imagine they are worth $100,000.00 each and start there. (even if one day they are worth 0, the possibility will haunt you.
I had at least 50 coins when they were worth a buck or so. Totally forgot about (didn't care about) the wallet at the time.
Formatted my drive.)

I don't want to beat this into the ground but you totally need to keep a current backup on usb key, or a few of them.
I have 2 computers here that are just used for backup purposes. Each with a few drives. Not on the internet.

I put a copy of my wallet every couple of days on each of their drives, and also I have the copy on my usb key. (Daily/weekly backups are especially important when you are doing lots of transactions anytime recently)

Also, for my coins in cold storage, I have printed copies of my private keys in 2 safes in different locations.
I know some people take this process way further, especially for those with lots of coins, I've only got a few in total.
