Payout are still jacked.  I'll be back once payouts start working again.

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.


Some of us trade on OTC, so mtgox doesn't matter.  Also some of us have more than 1btc sitting there.

Disclaimer: I'm not accusing anyone of anything here by this.


Exactly because of what is happening right now.  I have more than 1btc confirmed in there just sitting.  If I had a smaller transfer set, at least however much was confirmed up until this issue started would be safe.   Now I have to be concerned about it.  I agree that there should have been some sort of notice of something in the very least if this is intentional.

If not, then I will get it when it comes, however until then I have to be concerned about why I don't have it yet.

Noone knows what's going on?

I have no idea what's going on, beyond the obvious. But, when it comes to payouts, I think I've picked up (or deduced or somehow dreamed up) something along the lines of slush's system being set up so that payments are processed after a block has been found. Which is fine, as long as the system is able to hash up new blocks.

I think the system is - if there are any payments ready then they're paid when a block is generated. In this case I suspect the payments weren't ready, and weren't paid.

To be honest, I'm not too worried because I figure Slush will process back payments manually when he reappears. I appreciate other people may not be able to be as laid back as me, however. (I'm also slightly worried about Slush - I know it's the weekend, and I don't expect Slush to monitor the pool all the time, but I hope everything is OK, and Slush isn't hurt or ill...)

Slush's pool is up & down like a yoyo
I've had several hash's found but not showing as they got to the pool
I think he's under a serious attack

it looks that way, at this point.

damn - i like his pool.  i hope Tycho got in touch with him as was mentioned elsewhere, is providing assistance, and hardening the site is underway.  and perhaps slush will take Tycho's approach to heart: co-location in multiple national jurisdictions.

nothing to do but wait.

Perhaps the guy is just out enjoying the sun with cold beer. And the far from stable bitcoind is just well being unstable... suggest we just chillax. Last time I checked I wasn't paying for 24/7 support.

I agree! It's mother's day weekend. Perhaps the guy took his wife or mom away and promised no computer for the weekend. I am using this time to attempt some solo mining and learning more about how this all works. I'll be back as soon he fixes things up, but I'm not riding his a$s to get it done. Wink

I guess we aren't paying fo 24/7 support, but we do pay the 2% fee. We pay for a service which currently isn't running which I do see as a problem. In fact, noone has even reponded officially about that status of the pool.

It's hard not to think that for just 1% more you can purchase the reliability of deepbit along with long polling. Or for free you can still get up and running BTCmine.com with a real choice to payment to operator so you don't feel like you are paying for nothing.

Slush has left the building. Sad  Handed the keys to Tycho.

I was out of internet for the weekend, I'm working on that, long report will be later. Mining works again, payouts are stopped, analyzing troubles.

Edit: Payouts working, need to go sleep. I'll write report tomorrow.

What a fantastic way to come back to civilization.  Again, I don't envy you slush..  I hope you had a good time and that pool cleaning isn't too horrible.

If you look it's like twice a day(i had special situation for that to happen) to once every two weeks, I'm a slow miner so I get a nice feeling just getting them sent to me, I'm not worried or anything. I should probably turn it up to 1BTC though, but with difficulty sky rocketing, it be a month maybe before i'd get paid ~$4 worth of BTC....

EDIT: This is a problem with bitcoin, if small transactions are bad, then that spells trouble. IRL I could give back and forth a penny to someone a million times withour issue, in Bitcoin this is terrible.

If you buy a piece of gum, your stressing the network... there's too much reliance on others to make sure it works.

It was a theory, at least. But I see now that slush is on the case, and that I have new btc on my pool address so I guess things are going back to normal. Smiley

I think its time to remove the dots on the graphs, or let users toggle them.

How do you make the graphs now?
