Here comes all the pool hoppers and the longer block times. If they only knew how much more they could make if they just stayed here or somewhere else and left those miners along!

More likely batch 2 and 3 of the S3's "testing" as well as any other hardware mining before shipment. They usually try to spread them across several pools we have been seeing this for a while now.

...and what they really should be doing and used to do in the past is, test on the testnet.

That's cute, thinking ASIC manufacturers used testnet in the past.

Why are rewards so low last night and today?

I usually get 40,000+, but I've been at 30, and as low as the mid-20s...

Probably because the pool picked up another Petahash of miners.  More miners means smaller slice of pie for you.

Maybe something bad happening at Eligius and we are getting some of their miners, as I noticed we are now finding as many blocks as they are.

Orphaned or invalid blocks.

https://blockchain.info/charts/n-orphaned-blocks

Info below answers question and is not a chart

Invalid Blocks. The block chain that represents the entire history of all transactions in the Bitcoin network is linear; there can be no [permanent] branches. If two miners solve a block at about the same time, a branch occurs, and miners may begin building on either of the two. Whichever block chain grows faster becomes the “valid” block chain for the network, and the blocks in the “losing” chain become invalid. This is why there’s a 100-block maturation time before block rewards and transaction fees may be spent; it’s insurance against those BTC becoming invalid in the meantime.

Hey guys, a quick (general) question about mining...

I was reading a tutorial about mining and it said this:
Quote
A Bitcoin node is basically an electronic bookkeeper, and anybody in the world can set up and run one. Each node has a complete copy of the public ledger – that’s a record of every Bitcoin transaction that ever happened, in history, all the way back to the very beginning of Bitcoin. As of today, the public ledger contains more than 30 million transactions and requires 13 GB of disk space.

A 'node' is each one of us, right?  I don't ever remember downloading a 13GB ledger in order to do mining.

Its the bitcoin core wallet, takes ages to sync , most people use web/lite wallets where supplier has a core wallet that the app syncs with,, faster than core wallet. Its also part of bitcoin being non centralised. As long as there are 2 nodes bitcoin keeps running.

Mining software does not require you being a node.
You do that by downloading https://bitcoin.org/en/download

For me, it took about 3 days and numerous reboots for it to initialize.
It is kind of cool, especially if you want a local wallet, but it does
occasionally use a ton of network bandwidth. I don't run it full time
anymore, but maybe an hour a day to catch up with the network.

i) What are the advantages of being a node?  Is there any reward?  Or just a feeling that you've contributed to the community?
ii) Why is it necessary for nodes to have the entire transaction history?  What use do the earliest transactions still serve?
I would have thought you'd only need the latest ones.
