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.

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
