I mine on Slush it has been very stable, it is just people cannot handle the score system. Because when bad luck hits you do not get any reward but when you hit a very good luck then you earn lots.

I have a question

does the monthly luck ever have a chance of going 113%

seems to me the monthly should be pretty close to 100%.

No, Slush is score based.  Shares contributed later in a given block are scored higher than shares contributed in the early portions;  this is meant to discourage miners who join for the first, lesser difficulty portion of a block, then jump out to somewhere else when the CDF crosses whatever threshhold they've determined is "too hard too long" for them (See also:  Raulo's attack, https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3165.msg44357#msg44357 ).  The block is then scored as a whole, and rewards are based on the portion of the score of the block that you accumulated.

Correct - statistically, Luck should converge on 100% at 30 days.

In reality, well, there's a reason it's called "Luck" and not "Standard Deviation" or "Block solve/find rate" or something equally untrue.  Like they say: Lies, Damn lies, and Statistics Smiley

Your on Slush because you like drama. If you want sit back and watch the sausage factory go on one of the big PPLNS pools. At the end of the month you could be up or down depending on which pool happened to have better luck that month. You can spend hours analyzing why it works that way if you want something to occupy your time but in the end there's no way to beat the odds.

BFGMiner just showed on my console 4 new blocks found within 3 minutes of each other. Does that mean 4 BTCs were found?

Unfortunately we are still working on a 20+ hour block, see our stats page (https://mining.bitcoin.cz/stats/). If we did find those blocks the pool would have earned 100 BTC.

It just got a bit harder to find those blocks too, difficulty is 6,978,842,650 now Cry

That's why I asked the question. Would BFGMiner be showing blocks found by other pools? That doesn't make sense.

Each time the network finds a block, then we all start looking for the next one.

Slush has not found a block for 20+ hours.

All the shares in slush continue to accumulate until slush's pool finds a block. Then slush pays out.

So then, the new block notification I'm receiving is basically slush's pool saying (dump what you've been doing and start work on a new one," right?

Not completely "dump" ...   the shares from your work are carried forward, on a reducing value, until slush finds a block and pays out.

One thing I am curious about is the "anti pool hopping" part of Slush's
Pool. Is it based by the individual worker within my account, or is it
for my account as a whole?

In my case, at different times I have 2-3 different platforms, and I
have assigned them each a separate worker. I am wondering now if
it might not make more sense for them all to share the same worker_id.
If I have to take one down to work on the platform, then I don't "lose"
the effort already done by thet platform, just what it doesn't do while
it's down. I can see benefits to having multiple worker_id's, but I want
to know it's drawbacks as well.

Any wisdom out there on this?

That is a very good question and I might want to do the same IF by chance it is messing with how much I make when a miner happens to go offline

Slush's (flawed) anti hopping system is purely based on the timing of individual shares.  Basically, the more recent a share was submitted, the more its worth.  It has nothing to do with user or worker.  A share submitted now is worth more than one submitted a minute ago.  A share submitted 30 minutes ago is virtually worthless due to the discrepancy between the score that share earned vs the score a recent share earns.
