You see, now we have seven blocks in one day. It's all good. Pool hop if you want, but you will only maximize your profits by luck alone. Hanging in any single pool gives you predictability.

Not true. There's plenty of information about how to maximise income by hopping proportional and scored proportional pools.


Got a link? How can you predict luck?

The only way I know of is using Raulo's attack and AFAIK all notable pools i.e. anything that comes up looking like your not solo mining, have instituted some form of protection against it.

You don't. You can calculate 'when to leave a pool' and not loose much, but there should be another pool you can jump to, which is the guessing part, that makes it not worth it IMHO.

I personally don't care who comes and goes. The only one who does likely is the pool itself since it works off a flat percentage whereas all our percentages vary with the size of the pool.

Can I adjust somehow the difficulty that I get? I thought that you could do it from the workers edit, but there is nothing there.

I'm not sure what you mean by adjust the difficulty.  That is determined by the bitcoin network.  If you mean adjust the amount of work you get, just power down your rig for part of the day.

Hmm, I'm not sure Organofcorti was thinking such a simple solution and I for one would like to know more...

Yes, slush's pool is currently finding approximately 35 blocks per week or 5 a day so 8 hours is not unusual (although disliked by many). To mine here you have to take the long blocks with the short...

I know, we haven't had a 12 hour block in...almost a whole day.

CDF is at ~85% on the current block, nothing to see here, move along.

No. VarDiff will in time will optimize your difficulty for your miners to maximize your submitted shares and minimize stales.

Some pools have no ability to do this and you have to work it out manually. Some allow you to set minimums. Slush does it automatically. Sit back and relax and let the pool do it's magic. Grin

Hoppers check your stats, I see a strong "move along" signal.

24 seconds too late, apparently.  Nothing in the pipe.  Cry

So a different pool or someone found the block 24 seconds before us?

I'm fairly new here - and only mining for curiosity.

This is the second invalid block in a few days - does it happen often or is this unusual?

What's to stop a miner in a pool who finds a block from taking it for himself and modifying the miner software so he returns it to the pool just a bit late?

Yep.   It's about a 1.5% chance that a block will be orphaned, about 1 out of 67 blocks we find.  The pool could toss out the orphaned block earlier, since noone ever chained to that block, but I suppose there's something to be said for holding out for a miracle.
