I really care less what other ppl opinions about this issue but personally there is some correlation between 10 PH and long block.

after 20+ hours and am starting to listen.  Undecided

Said it a zillon times, I was probably the first person to point out this 10PH barrier issue people thought i was crazy or creating conspiracies Smiley

And yes totally agree makes no logical sense what so ever seriously makes no sense.

But I feel our best block times come in the 8-9PH range 

Once we get into the 9-10PH they block times start to increase
At 10PH game over
as you can see right now 20+hrs @ 10PH I bailed out at 10hrs just cannot mine 24hrs with no income not with my electric rates
I have also come to the conclusion that if a block crosses 9hrs its going to run 24hrs or more.

Once again just a observation

another thing I observe is when the difficulty changes seems to be some correlation to long block times, as if it takes the pool time to adjust.

There, ma friend, you have a point! My observation about that particular conspiracy is congruent with the spirit of what you say , my minor divergence emanating from the little detail of "long block times", as the reverse can also be true, indeed it happened not long ago. Remember when we had those 10 blocks in a day? That was on the 11th Feb 2015 and that lucky run began a mere 10 hours after the increase in network difficulty from 41272873894 to 44455415962.

So it seems pool luck can be influenced by how fast the algorithm dishing out (and co-ordinating) the work adjusts to a new network difficulty (if ever there is anything of the sort!)

PS. And if there is such a thing in existence as optimisation of the algorithm dishing out and co-ordinating work, then please do tell since I'd very much like to implement it in my very own proxy for solo mining ...!!

Well, time for a beer and a scotch egg. Had a productive day servicing miners in main farm whilst the miners at home appear to have spent the day chewing the same block again. Oh well  Roll Eyes

Time to start renting my small rig out again.  Will wait for the end of this block so it's not a waste of time.  Watch the 10 blocks a day start again.

I was waiting also before pulling my miners, but that was 10+ hours ago. Should have just left then and would have been better off.

I must be missing something ..... so I decided to dust off my early NanoFury acquisition, that I had put away for months on end now, fired up bfgminer and pointed it to slush in the hope we can breach that annoying 10 Ph/s thresh-hold .... every little helps!



Hope that helps ..... Now back to the number crunching ....

Well ive got a Ice Fury sitting in a jar on the mantle. Maybe I could blow off the dust and plug that beast in if you think it might help.

Wow, the amount of offline rigs a Betarigs is amazing.  There's hardly anything running any more.  Definitely more offline than online.

28hr block so far. That is great.

If someone has the time, they should go through the list of IP's which found blocks during >10PH on the blockchain and then compare then to IP's found when the pool was operating under 9ph. Look at the performance difference between Slush and Eligius for the tiny difference in power. Less that 1% more power against the network but 80% more blocks.

I'd actually forgotten how tedious these little buggers were to to run .... anyhow, I plucked out another couple of bitfury dongles so I now total a whopping ~7Gh/s extra! If I had that 10 port hub handly, I'd have plucked out the phenomenon that are block-erupters ..... I think I have about 35 gathering dust somewhere ...

Anyone tried Nicehash before?  Also known as Westhash.  Thoughts?

The network is definitely slow today .... is it due to the impending difficulty change? Not sure, is that due 23rd Feb (aka 2 weeks after the last change on 9th Feb)? Network block just finished was 32mins .... never-mind, I'll look up the interwebs!

I rented on Westhash during the Paycoin rush and made out very good for about a week.
