i switched to BTCmine since there was no payout! there isnt even a payout button on the user page. i am getting a little bit suspicious now...
EDIT: upon further investigation i suspect serious botnet activity on the pool
48 Ghash/s with 2000 connected workers indicates a whole lot of slow miners as only a botnet would have...

actually, my CPU miners are connecting and losing connection every so often, my poclbm(opencl miner) isn't connecting at all(once in a while it'll work) and that where the real power is. No, it's not a botnet. The system doesn't work on a payout button system, it works on a "if my miners make XX amount, then send it".

The pool rate is based on 30min average, it is NOT a 'right now' number. since clients are connecting and disconnecting, it's expected to drop to a low number.

Slush's pool is and has always been legit.

Agreed for sure on that last part...it definitely seems unwell right now, though. Sad

it's just a rolling re-boot or some kind of issue with slush's ISP.

nothing worth getting upset over - slush seems quite the pro, and if he judges that allocating his time to get stuff back up is more important than anything else right now i can't really disagree.

Shameless plug: You can use my bitcoin-mining-proxy project to allow your miners to failover to different pools (or solo mining) if your preferred pool is unreachable.

You'll need access to a web server, PHP, and MySQL, and deploying the proxy on your local network is preferred.  (Try XAMPP if you don't have any *nix machines.)

Tips are always welcome and can be sent to 1CZ8QgBWZSV3nLLqRk2BD3B4qDbpWAEDCZ

Thanks to ye, we have the final piece.

Just for example my run stopped at 10.890843 BTC (10.0 automatic payment value) - block not changed after:

Those things obviously increase the power consumption and rise the chance something to fail on the machine. Miners should have a failover option, but we'll wait for that.

No extra power is needed if you run the proxy on one of the computers you are already running, and the amount of CPU time required to run the proxy is really small, definitely not enough to interfere with GPU mining.

It does add extra complexity to your setup, but then again so would failover in the client -- adding complexity anywhere can introduce bugs.  But this additionally gives you the benefit of having pool failover on all your miners, regardless of what software you use for each miner, in a central and manageable way.  I've been running the proxy software for the past month or so, with no problems whatsoever.  Being able to check on and manage my miners remotely from any web browser is also very handy.

Agreed ...  Pool hash rate is climbing.

Yup, my confirmed payout has been over the threshold for 3 hours, no payment. Also 3 invalid blocks in a row starting at 16.50, so the last 8 hours or so seem to have been wasted..

Dang, what a mess. Several invalid blocks in a row (3 to be precise). Time to ditch this shallow pool and hop into the deep one :p

Could this "one of the computers" asks itself so my computational speed stays the same and change is only in pool's address?

Yes. Nothing keeps you from just connecting to yourself. In fact, this is the standard case.

darn it, only been mining since Sunday on my 5850 (on Slush's pool) and found my first block this morning.. And got one of the lowest payouts I've ever gotten on the pool hehe 0.028 BTC!

Oh well, I'm sure it evens out, but it would be great to have 50 BTC's right now Smiley

I had earned a total of 46 BTC when I found my first block. In the long run, yes, it all evens out. Smiley

With difficulty rapidly on the increase, does it really for small time miners?   I think that is why the pools are so alluring.

That's actually a good point. Were I more awake, we could do some math on the topic. Tongue I do know that I SS'ed it and posted it all over the place...I was very happy. Just got it a few days ago. Smiley

You don't need to do math to know that for slow miners a pool is better. Even with my 760 mhps, I didn't find a block since the last difficulty rise (since 4/26 even) and the probability of me not finding one until the next rise is not small. So I might well miss a whole 2016 block with "relatively low" difficulty. With probability on the rise like nowadays, that's "missing out on a lot", cause I didn't mine anything at difficulty 109670, but would have in the pool.

As said above, though, switching to a pool now, then finding a block there and saying: "I should've continued solo, cause I found a block", is wrong. While the chances are the same, it happening in one parallel universe doesn't mean it happens in another, especially because we're not even talking about the same event (the block one finds solo looks differnt from the block he would've found at the exact same time in the pool (differnt timestamp, different key, maybe different txs).

1.) Slush might be holding back payouts because he doesn't want to pay a botnet (wild speculation)

2.) why do people need a payout from pool of 0.20 BTC like 5 times a day (see screenshot somewhere above)? Do they spend these coins instantly? Do they not trust slush for 1 BTC? (note: I don't really care, since a lot of transactions are a good test of the network, I just don't understand the logic)

3.) How the hell are people "loosing profit" when payouts are delayed for a day or so? It's not like mtgox is going down.

well an official statement would surely help to shed light on these circumstances.
