In cgminer, there is a specific path and process of work from the pool to cgminer, to the device, back to cgminer and back to the pool again.
Bitmain messes with that process.
My first release I did of their S1 driver, I spent time fixing that process.
They ignored the changes.

So the simplest answer is to point out that what the Bitmain antminers show with their versions may not always be correct .......... on all their miners.

Thanks for the answer! Bitmain really ignored it? They have really been letting me down lately with all their sites being down due to DDoS, and now this, but that's life! My main reason for asking about it in the first place is because I was debating on trying solo mining, now I know it was a BUG (like an ANT  Wink ) and solo mining would pretty much be pointless for me.

Bitmain messes up a lot of things. Every version of S3 firmware introduces some new problem. They are very sloppy in writing firmware and seem to not test it very well either.

I will have to agree, there is no consistency. It took me some time to find a stable firmware. Updating firmwares are always risky with any device, the less you do it, the better. I had to do this more than I would have liked.

I recently sold my S3 but I stuck with the October 23rd firmware it came with. Could not hard reset but never had a need to. This seems to be the best firmware absent the reset button issue.

New miner here, Slush is definitely on a roll now! 

I'm sure it all evens out in the end for the most part though, but it's fun watching all of these blocks being found in such short order

Haha I can't tell if you guys are sarcastic or serious, hopefully the latter.  But I am definitely liking Slush's new website and all of the data it has compared to a few other pools I looked at.

I love the new site updates! It's a very crisp and clean look.

Took me a few minutes to figure out how to increase the detail level on the dashboard, but once done I'm happy with it.

Today I was standing up some new miners, and went in to create a unique worker for it so I could monitor it separately, but the workers are all only showing "x" as the password and I was never given the option to create a password for this worker. Do all the workers use the same password? or am I doing something wrong? Thanks for humoring a noob...

Mining password is actually a misnormer, so what if somone mines using your worker .... not that you'd be defrauded in any way!
So the answer(s) to your question(s), YES, x is the password for all workers and NO you do not need a password.

What about the pay/earnings? Has it changed? I stopped using it as it seems quite less than other pools like eligius and kano. Heck even westhash earned me more for the same TH.

Go Big or Go Home.

I love the way people try and keep worker details secret.  PROMOTE THEM!!!  Everyone use worker bigbitmine.dontate for a while.

What will happen?  Will my miners get hacked?  Will my BTC be stolen?  NO

Will someone be mining on my behalf and earn me BTC for nothing?  YES

Remember, bigbitmine.donate for your chance to mine for absolutely NO reward.

Great job slush

You might want to look into "BTC Miner" iOS app from Daniel Banasik. I'm using it and it works fine with Slush's pool.

There are others, but that's the one I'm using now.

I also use the "slush-block-notification" python script to send me an email when the pool finds a block. I had to modify the script to get it to work on the Mac. It would be nice if that was a pool option instead.

Was Block ID 23696 not a real block?  It shows confirmed, but it didn't pay out?  Can anyone else confirm this?
