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.

There has been a possibility to manually set the (minimum) difficulty (UserDiff) of the shares sent to the pool. It has been replaced by (automatic) VarDiff some time ago.
This is something different than the network difficulty.

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

I'm afraid the reason has nothing to do with stales. (And where there's said that submitted shares are accepted shares?)
In fact, VarDiff tries to minimize ;-) the number of shares submitted, trying to conserve bandwidth and server load for fast miners.

If this is the case why offer lower difficulty shares at all for slower miners? Yes correction I meant accepted not submitted.

I know we had an invalid block, but I thought something was wrong with my total as well. Like I refreshed it after being away all day, and it barely went up. It was the first time I noticed an invalid block, and I know there was only about 2 other rounds all day, but it was almost like it subtracted the invalid block amount from my balance.

I could just be seeing things.

If you are looking at your "Total reward:", remember that it is a combination of your "Confirmed reward" (that which has already been confirmed) and your "Unconfirmed reward" (that which is yet to be confirmed). If a block is "Orphaned" in the process of getting all its confirmations, then it is no longer considered a part of the "Unconfirmed reward" and is then not considered in the "Total reward", so yes, it is subtracted from the "Total reward". Effectively, the "Total reward" is what you will bank if each of the pending blocks is "confirmed". The only money that you actually have in the bank is the "Confirmed reward" and that value doesn't change if a pending block is determined invalid.

Nah. Watching the BTC Guild or any of the other big ones sausage factory run is boring. I prefer the randomness with Slush. Really, even when it's a down day it adds some suspense to an otherwise mundane operation. That and with Slush you get a sense of community where the other big one's are impersonal.

With Slush its more of an emotional roller-coaster ride.

Yippee, a block  Grin ..  damn it, no blocks for hours  Angry ...yippee, a block  Grin..  damn it.......

Its all about the group hug when we finally win that long round.

Happy mining folks  Grin

It looks like the new Ants S2 and other ASIC's are in their 'test' phase, way too many blocks are being found by some private pools in the last few days Roll Eyes
By the time they get delivered to their new owners, many of them would have paid it-selves  Cheesy
Sadly there isn't really any other SHA-256 currency offering better profitability than Bitcoin, so most of them would be pointed at Bitcoin, increasing the difficulty sharply  Angry

Difficulty jump was just 18% to 5006860589, so the great flood of hyper-TH miners has not reached the shores yet... Smiley
