@ dmwardjr

If you ever need to talk with eleuthria just post to him in this link and he will normally answer:(He's legit)

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=49417.msg9308480#msg9308480

Like I said, I've sent a PM to him.  I actually sent 4 to him.

We PM'd back and fourth to one another about 4 times each about 3.5 weeks ago when I was comparing Slush to BTC Guild.  So, I figured he might get back in touch if I asked him about the CPU usage of 99%.

If you have EVERYONE's CPU on the guild that COULD be a lot of hashing power if combined.  

Just saying.

I'm done with it now since it stopped doing it.

I should have taken a picture of my Activity Monitor when it was happening to prove it to you.  My cooling fans in my MacBook Pro would wind up real fast every time I would navigate to the guild's website.  I ended up "FORCE QUITTING" it in my Activity Monitor 2 times after navigating to the site 2 times.  I then PM'd eleuthria after the 2nd time I did a Force Quit.  I PM'd eleuthria 4 times.

But like I said, I'm done with it since it has stopped.

For instance.  The other night I navigated over to BTCGuild.  All of a sudden my fan in my laptop starts blowing real hard to do some serious cooling.  I'm like, that's not good.  So, I went to my activity monitor in my Mac and saw BTC Guild in Safari was using 99% of my CPU.  WHY?  I believe it was to use my laptop to hash.  

I send the owner of the guild a PM telling him about it and 10 to 15 minutes later it stops.  

Too much fishy crap going on around here.  Well, the owner of the guild is a moderator on here.  I never get a response to the PM I sent.  The CPU usage just stops and it hasn't occurred anymore.

Seriously??? You realize how unlikely that is (and how it sounds) and even if it was the hashing power would be zilsh....

Ooooh ooooh conspiracy theory. Wait a sec let me get the ex governor Jesse Ventura he lives that shit...

Yep, I've officially been hazed!!!

No it wouldn't. Please check your numbers. 10,000 of the most powerful CPUs today amount to about one S3 which is 440GH. For a pool with 13,000,000 GH, do you honestly think the pool operator would risk his reputation for that much more?

Hell, I would hope not.

Just didn't make since to me

Stil don't understand WHY it would take up 99% of my CPU and send my cooling fans to blazing?

The reason they would turn on is to cool the CPU or GPU.

I looked at the "Activity Monitor" and sure enough, it was the CPU.

I wish NOW I had taken a picture of my activity monitor with my iPhone to prove it to you.

It seems no one cares to TRY to explain HOW the guild would use 99% of my CPU when I would navigate to the website?

It doesn't do it anymore, and probably never will again.

Oh well.

One runaway javascript on the web page would be enough to do it. Why does this need to be explained, and especially on the slush pool thread?

I did tell him in a PM I had just upgraded from OS X Mavericks to OS X Yosemite that same night.  It was the first day Yosemite came available for download.  I don't know if that had anything to do with it or not?  It never did it before until after the upgrade to Yosemite.  I told him that might be part of the reason.  I just didn't know.

Well, THAT could explain it because my computer later prompted me for a Java update after updating to Yosemite.  About 4 hours later.

What prompted it is if you look back earlier to see me wondering what was up with the "1 Day Luck" acting up?

I suppose I will stop being paranoid and TRY to ask questions if something seems weird.

What I'm mentioning is NOT to continue accusations.  What I'm mentioning is merely to prove a point.

MacBook Pro 17" Early 2011

2.2 GHz Intel Quad Core i7; meaning 2.2 GHz x 4 cores = 8.8 GHz

450 divided by 8.8 = 51.14 MacBook Pro 17" with i7 2.2 GHz Quad Core chips

Most PC's and Mac's today I would say average around 2.2 GHz x 4 for 8.8 GHz but we will use my 2011 model Mac to be conservative.  If you had 10,000 computers with 8.8 GHz average, that would be equivalent to 195.5 S3's; NOT ONE as you say.  Also, if it took 10,000 CPU's to equal 1 S3, you would be saying EACH AND EVERY CPU in each and every computer [10,000 computers] is less than a quarter (.25 cents)!  That is FAR from the truth.  


BM1382 has achieved 15.75 Gh/s in hash performance in each chip:

BitMain BM1382 chip specifications:
- Process Node: 28nm
– Package Type: FCQFN-56
– Packaged Chip Size: 8mm x 8mm
– Number of Cores: 63
– Core Voltage: 0.75 V
– Core Frequency: 250 MHz
– Hash Rate: 15.75 GH/s

      250,000,000  Hz (250 MHz) - Core Frequency
    x              63       Cores (processors)
  15,750,000,000 Hash Rate

multiplied by 28 [63 core processors] = 450,000,000,000 (450GB) Total Hash Rate

The new Bitmain Antminer U3 uses four (4) 1382 chips [4 x 15.75GH] for a total of 63 GH/s

http://www.coindesk.com/hackers-hijack-retailers-showroom-pcs-cryptocurrency-mining/

Also, if it took 10,000 computers, as you say, why would hackers even bother hacking these retail stores for dismal profits from mining?  The reason is because it does not take 10,000 computers to make one S3.  It only takes approximately 50 computers to make one S3 but that is being conservative.  It may only take about 48 computers.

I challenge anyone with a PC that has a QUAD CORE PROCESSOR to mine with their CPU for an hour then multiply their hourly average hash rate x 51 and see if it is somewhat close to one S3.  Well, you might have to multiply it by 58 cause Slush always shows a little slower than what my rigs say.

You might see you have to multiply times close to 200 to get close to 450GH/s.  If that's the case, then it takes approximately 200 to equal 1 S3.

My S4 is not performing as expected. I only see 1800 - 1900 Gh/sec hourly ratings on Slush so far.
Have been checking the average for the last couple of days but can't see any improvement.

I tried minimum difficulty at 2048 and 2250. No real difference.

Anyone seeing similar behavior ?

The funny thing is that on the S4 internal stats page I currently see like an average mining speed of 2002.39 Gh/s over the last 3 days.

Slush:
xxxxxxxxx    x    0    355500    3139621.50955    0 minutes    1806.571    2250

versus

S4 internal stats:

Hi Cowchaser,

Have you installed the latest S4 firmware from the bitmain site:

  https://bitmaintech.com/support.htm?pid=00720140930114518599JXGHWWD80660

and the latest S4-specific cgminer update from ckolivas:

  https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=796839.msg9242133#msg9242133

Also remember that hashrates on Slush's pool seem to improve the longer you hash, so your hashrate may take 2 - 10 hours to reach the value its going to settle at.

thanks,

-dave

You really ought to test out that hypothesis yourself before spouting off such utter tripe on here. You do know of course a Ghz is in no way comparable to GH/s.

Actually, since I'm feeling kind I'll give you the answer and save you some time and give you the (rough) hashing results using all cores.

4x Opteron 6174's will crank out around 115Mhash/s (while chewing over 300 watts), an Athlon 64 X2 6400+ Black Edition will do a whopping 2.9Mhash/s!!  But you're also aware that's the exact reason people switched to GPU's right? where the 5830 would do 270-330 Mhash/s 5850 was around the 400 range.
