greetings friends,


When I learned about this concept I thought it was one of the coolest things I've come acrossed in awhile. My first attempt at mining was with a iCore-3 cpu and that was crawling along at 1.5Mhash/s, so I found a great deal on a Saphire Vapor-X Radeon HD 5870 (craigslist $175) and have been rockin that with the guiminer and getting 300MHash/s+ ... my question is do you think its better for someone in my position with a fairly decent gpu to just use the bitcoin client on my own or to participate in a pool (which I am currently doing)

What is the standard accepted as a Ghash rate that is capable of mining on its own? Is there any recommendations here , where is the cut off point?

Thanks!

I'm running at 3.2 gH/s and looking at 5 gH/sec in 2 weeks.  I wouldn't dare solo mine though.  Over an infinite amount of time, sure you'd end up ahead, but luck is far too much of a factor, especially now that the network is staying above 1 tH/sec.  Giving up 2% of the block for Slush's pool to maintain a mostly steady rate of income is well worth it in my opinion, unless you're able to pull together a 20+ gH/sec farm, and even then luck can really screw you.

hey slush, did you see my earlier post? http://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1976.msg99367#msg99367

while I only use the pool occasionally and the problem is intermittent... maybe this guy has the same problem?

This is not a pressing issue (currently I can access the site, and when I can't I just use tor), but it would be interesting to know what's going on. Any ideas?

Is there a trick to changing your password? I can't find a link anywhere...

Also it'd be really neat to be able to bulk create worker accounts. Either multiple on the site, or an API to do it would be best.

I cannot think of a scenario where creating batch workers makes sense.  How many do you need?  The vast majority of users are going to create perhaps a couple workers at a time (usually one at a time).  Even if you built a rig you would likely make only four workers (the VERY RARE miner that uses four dual GPU would create right which would only take a few minutes).

Sorry, but I do worry about foul play after the botnet warning from BTCMine.

If everything works except website, it looks like problem with site rate limiter. People started to complaining when I turned it on, maybe there is some problem inside and I should investigate a little... :-/.

Currently there is no explicit API, but it is pretty easy to use form POST to right URL...

I'm probably not going to make an API, because every time I had request to this, people told me they are going to do some kind of botnet. As I don't like it, I don't plan to support it by APIs.

Hi, I just started with the pool and am just wondering how do I transfer my earned bitcoins to my wallet? Seems a silly question but the only info on the site is a "Send Treshold" which originally is 1.0 BTC before it is sent. Is that automatic once I reach 1 BTC?

There is a payout history; I changed the threshold to 0.5 thinking it will be sent to my wallet directly (I now have .58+ BTC confirmed) but that seems to be not the case as under my payout history is "0". Any help would be very much appreciated.

Yes, everything is fully automatic, but payment processing is done once every hour. So please be patient, if your confirmed reward is >= 0.5 BTC, your threshold is 0.5 BTC and you have correct wallet address on profile page, it will be processed soon.

Thanks for the reply. I overlooked the once per hour payment processing. More power to your pool then.

Hmm, good point with the POST. I guess I could work out how to send a cookie and whatnot.

Do you not have a way to change passwords?

Could anybody point me into the right direction?

Slush I'm wondering if you'll ever add in support for miner status and reporting into the site's API? The reason I'm asking is there is this neat windows 7 gadget that I and no doubt others would like to use to monitor our miners with your pool. See this thread:

nextshare wrote me the feature request today, worker status is currently only missing API, which is not so hard. So yes, I'll support that.
