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?

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.

I think most regulars on slush have tried nearly every pool there is. Personally, BTC guild would be my third choice - it's nice that they NMC but they have pretty hefty fees - the pplns rate 'feels' ridiculously low and a small run of bad luck makes you think sod this. Ghashio would be my second choice but again the fees are quite high. Although I do like the website for ghash better than btc - for me, both of the big players offer a 'boring' mining experience. Alas, my main pool is here - where the luck runs high and low and fast and furious. I do miss the days when slush had 15% of the entire network though. 3% is too low and I've been hoping for a website refresh for a while now... Others have been waiting a lot longer than I...

I like how you're mentioning hefty fees while mining on a pool with the same fee (and no merged mining).

Actually good point - I didn't notice when slush moved to 2% - when was that?

Slush has been 2% since at least April...of 2011.  I don't think it has ever been any different.  When I first started mining before starting BTC Guild, the options were Deepbit (3% prop with paid orphans) and Slush (2% score without paid orphans), basically identical payments (orphan rate ~= 1% historically).

EDIT:  He had a single day at 0% fee celebrating the pool's third anniversary.  As far as I can tell, that is the only time in Slush's history that the fee was not 2%.

2%. That's pretty good. I knew my mother was wrong about spending too much time on the computer. Now I have to buy my mining equipment.

Anyone care to speculate why this is reflecting a sharp dip? Seems unprecedented.

The downside is it appeared to recover.  Grin

Website glitch probably, I saw a couple months back there were many dips like the one you saw but those are fixed now.

   I've been mining for a month now with 3 usb erupters at around 1 Gh/s
and I can recommend slush pool to everyone as this is is the most honest
pool I found so far.
   "Luck" is not really a term I would use for describing anything that has
any computer generated numbers behind it , luck is when you throw a coin
in the air and it falls on head or tails or when you roll a dice but slush is
generally making sure to the best of his (theirs?) abilities to make sure that
everyone gets a fair share of that "generated" luck.
   I tried 50BTC BTCGuild , mining PPC etc etc and this is only pool not hiding
anything from you as all other pools are hiding the blocks you found and confusing you with steady income that is less and less in time to the point of nonsense.
   Also , Bitcoins , in my opinion , ARE NOT MONEY , they are just a big pile of
nothing that people believe is worth 500 $ per unit at the time of this post.
   Nobody knows for sure where this goes from here but as I upgrade my gear
slowly I will keep on using slush pool if it survives as it's the only honest deal
out there I found , also , mining is not work and it doesn't take anything from
my regular computer experience.
   On slush pool at least I know everyone is looking for blocks and solving them
and sharing the profit fairly according to their speed.
   Never forget , pool owner is THE OWNER OF BITCOINS MINED so trust that
the pool owner is an honest guy(s) is the most important thing for me and this
is the only pool I trust so far.Way to go slush !  Cheesy  

P.S. Sorry for misspelling , not a native english speaker

Glad you found a pool you like Gabr1el. 1GH/s is pretty puny by todays difficulty, even 1TH/s is small comparatively these days.

Since the recent brief site downtime for maintenance, I see that the average hash rate is now calculated over the last 60 minutes rather than the last ten rounds.  This is a good change, giving far more useful information.
