Small pools are not for the feint of heart. Or, people who sit and watch them all day.  Cool

been Slushing since May 2013, nothing has changed except the Pools hashrate.

Small pools are not for the feint of heart.

Every pool has it's good and bad times. What matters is the pool trust and support, which keeps it running. Just few examples from the past:
deepbit (my second favourite pool) is so far the only pool which had over 51%, but is now below 1Th ... just because it has no stratum (yet)
BTC Guild was close to 50% with the help of ASIC miner, but is now overrun by GHash.IO, while ASIC miner is not even on the chart
50BTC and EMC were much more than Slush at some point in time, but are now out of the chart.

Some day Slush may go out of the chart too, just because the mining became corporate business, but until then and until the pool is supported there is no reason to leave it, because of a bad day ... be it luck, DDoS or other (short, because Slush is fixing them) connectivity or stability problems.

There is apparently an update to the mining_proxy.exe (ver. 1.5.5) however the download location https[Suspicious link removed] does not work.

edit: well the link was removed, but it was the correct one.

I am sure people who went through a 12hour round followed by a 16 hour round wouldn't be happy and probably tried something else. .  not much you can do, its "luck" at that point. .   We did get a 1:14 round but are now on a 5+ hour round now. ..

You wait, when we get a string of sub 5min rounds all will be forgiven.

I must stop looking at the stats so often, just cant help myself.   Undecided

I just wrote an app that will monitor the slush api and tells you when the pool finds a block.
It can optionally send push notifications to iOS/android via https://pushover.net

https://github.com/professoruss/blockfound

Let me know if you have any feedback or can find a cheaper push app (pushover is $4.99)

output looks like this:
Found new block!! Elapsed: 11:52:20 Hashrate: 879340.212GH/s


I like this idea, well done. Have installed pushover but having read the Readme, not sure how I install you api into it? Any help with?

Thanks

you need to login to the pushover site, create a new application, name it, then it will give you an api token.  put that and your user key in pushover.yaml and run `ruby blockfound.rb pushover`

nice app. . .   not sure I want to run it on a linux box just to get updates though :-). .   but pretty cool. .

though not sure I want to be getting block updates. . .   it might be pretty depressing waiting for one for 10, 12, 16+ hours Sad

yep - essentially a day or two of bad luck has pulled the weekly pool luck down to 25 points. .   Hadn't seen that in a long long time. . .  Let's hope its an anomaly vs the new norm. . .

I don't know what the time it takes a block has to do with it, or the duration of the round.... but I haven't had a payout from slush pool all day and usually I have about 10 payouts by now, does anybody else have this problem today?

Yeah, and sadly weekends tend to be slow. If we don't see the tides change by Monday I might need to find a new pool, although I really hate messing with settings when everything works...

This current "Luck"....is outright RETARDED.  Huge % drops in 7 & 30 DMA.

It's funny because a few pages back, well maybe a few weeks ago, someone was giving me a bunch of shit because I was saying that complaining about "luck" is on topic. They were trying to say comments about luck were meaningless. I dunno, I've long speculated that our luck drops heavily when there is a technical problem backstage that we are unaware of, part of this has to do with the consecutive long blocks and when they clear up we usually have a run of incredibly good luck. I've also noticed, for whatever reason, blocks seem longer on the weekends. These types of pattern always seem to me like there's more to it than pure forces of luck. I do wonder right now if there's some issue with our pool that we just don't know about...
