It's now 21 hours with no blocks. I will give Slush 2 more days and if the results are still way below expected
I will switch back to Ghash permanently. They have variance too, but its tolerable. Nobody is married to any pool.

Everybody thought Maddoff was great too until the day it all came tumbling down.

Back to load balancing again... Incredible how 10 mins into load balancing and expected Slush payout has halved despite 24 hours of full speed contributions! Hmmm...

That's how Slush's system works.  It doesn't penalize people hopping into the pool, it penalizes people leaving (or even just reducing hash rate) during a round.

Load balancing in just about everything - mining, investing, etc. leads to greater peace of mind.
I don't recommend trying it with romantic partners though ...

Slush is not a romantic partner, or else you are doing it wrong.

not sure if I can last 2 more days... starting to think along the same lines maybe 5000TH is becoming too slow with this level of difficulty..

Reckon Slush should drop his percentage to 1% to entice people to stay?

Hi folks,
I am mining using slushs pool. I have a few numbers in the 'estimated rewards' section, but none in the 'unconfirmed rewards'.
Does this mean it is waiting for the block to be finished then my rewards will be shown in 'unconfirmed'?
I know that you have to wait for a certain number of blocks to be solved for rewards to be moved from unconfirmed to confirmed, but at the moment i have 0 unconfirmed at all, and i have been mining flat out for about a day.
In the statistics section it show many blocks being solved but they are all from a day or two ago, how many blocks are released and being mined at any one time?
Thanks for any insight.

That's because its been over a full day (27 hours now) since we last found a block. SO nothing to confirm.
These full day blocks are getting to be a nasty habit.  Shocked
Anyone know a block dance we can do to make it rain blocks? Kiss

Thanks mate! Good to know.
Also, i have to switch off my mining rig every once in a while - and it appears all my rewards disappear from the estimated reward box!
Is this to prevent pool hopping. Do i have to stay in the pool for the whole round. And if so how can i tell when a round is starting/ending so i know not to switch off my rig!
Thanks so much

If i have to switch off my rig occasionally - would i be better in a pool that was not designed to prevent pool hopping. That way i could get my reward for the shares i did - even if i switched off my gear half way through.
Is BTCGuild like this?

No. Here, if you stopped production after a few minutes of remuneration will be only memories.

Yes you can click on the statistics link on the left side of page to see the current pool stats which will tell you when the last block was found, current server time, time on current block and lots of other good stuff.
Its best to go offline at the beginning of a block and then join back in since the pool-hopping check penalizes leaving before end of block more (higher reward for later shares). You still get rewarded for all shares submitted but the reward is larger for later shares.

Is this to prevent pool hopping.  Yes, you lose yours shares very quickly Do i have to stay in the pool for the whole round. Yes at the end of the round you will only get whatever is in the "expected" field And if so how can i tell when a round is starting/ending so i know not to switch off my rig! If you can figure that out please let me know  Wink
Thanks so much

Thanks AFlatMinor - you guys are great! Thanks for the help. I would have been mining for days on and off for nothing.
So what is the next best thing to slushs pool that will let me keep my rewards even if i dont finish the round etc. I was really keen on slushs but perhaps BTCGuild?

You know, this is something... I have noticed the inverse as well - I plugged in a new miner 11 hours in, effectively doubling my hashrate, and an hour later the pool found a block and I got a payment proportional to if the new miner had been mining the whole 12 hours.

It seemed my share of the payout was calculated on the past hour - not the whole 12 hours I had been mining at 50%.

Eklipse found block at a speed of 840Th. I think that somewhere we switched and we are working for someone else and not for yourself.
