Hey I was hoping someone might be able to help me out, every time I go to the graphs page all I get is the headings of the graphs.  The places where the graphs should be are just empty white space.

Anyone know what I'm missing? 


Obviously it's not a huge deal, but I wouldn't mind being able to check the graphs once in a while.

Everyone knows you have to view them under moon light!!

Hey everyone!  I found my first block!  I would like to start my speech by saying you are welcome and you lives are infinitely better for having known me!  I don't know if there is a way to tell what actual block I found.  I would like to know just for curiosity's sake.
You are the most unluckiest person on the planet then.

Why am I so unlucky?  I say I'm fairly average.  I had been paid 53.12 BTC and the I found a block. Probability wins again!

I needed to restart api.bitcoin.cz balancer. It was down for less a minute, my apologies.

Hope what ever it is, it gets fixed as I cannot connect to your website, my miner as well, connection problems like a few days ago.

Edit:
It's up now, able to connect to website and miners are mining away. Glad my second monitor flickers badly when connection problem arises, like a little alarm notifying miners stopped. I believe its either trixx or 11.8 that causes the flickering when miners stop :/.

I'm kind of a Newb here but does all of this restarting have to do with only 2 hits in the last 8 hours?

"found block part"?

Yes, everything works; this variance is pretty normal. For example, today pool found 7 blocks in four hours...

Hey Slush,

Will you be implementing merged mining soon?

I've been running over 3 GHs for a couple months now and haven't found a single block (which is cool) I just wanted to make sure that if someone finds a block your sure that it shows up in there found block section

Yes, when your miner find a block, you'll see "1" in "Found block" on profile page...

I just added SSL certificate signed by RapidSSL authority. So no warnings about 'self signed' certificate in your browser anymore. I'll fix redirecting from https back to http on login page tomorrow.

SSL on website is finally working correctly. HTTP is forced for member section ("My account" and related) as security improvement.

Yeah, somehow I managed to find a block after only mining for a week.  1.2gh/s and I had only made about 12btc before I found it.   Man was I pissed, but i'm still here because I know it's not likely to happen again.

I got a block early on too - nothing since (other than 84 BTC)...

EHHH


WOOOHOOOOO

erm apologies for the outburst - in order to acquire the 84 BTC number I quoted above, I had to log into the account control panel.... where I found that rig 5 card 2 has the number '1' in the 'Found blocks' column!!!!


So that's two blocks to me!!! Well chuffed, that's a good start for a Monday.

And, thinking about it, not a bad return given that solo mining would have *presumably* given me 100 BTC, whereas mining with Slush has given me 84 BTC - but my mining exploits started off very small and took a while to get to the current 5-board setup (I've got around 4.88 gigahash/sec in total).

Also, the upgrade to full precision payouts must have helped somewhat.


I'm happy, let's put it this way. I've got no plans to move mining pools - I'm a pretty hard-nosed businessman when it comes to business (yeah, duff sounding sentence) but I simply haven't had any bullshit with Slush. So I've got no reason for mistrust, and the payments have all come in properly. Equally, I'm not feeling like a leecher now because I've contributed a couple of blocks to the pool Smiley

As to functionality etc. - the only thing I'd appreciate adding would be the merged mining with Namecoin - but *only if* there's any financial value in doing so. If the hashing that we all do can be applied to both blockchains for no additional cost (other than perhaps Slush using more CPU / network), *and* if the accumulation of 'namecoins' is valuable (i.e. I can spend them, or convert them to additional bitcoins), then I'd be asking for it.

I don't know anything about Namecoin other than the distributed-DNS concept. I can't say that I see it as being as important a development as Bitcoin - there's one hell of a difference between a government controlling your *means of exchange* and a government controlling your *address lookup*. If the USA made DNS hard to work, then I could still access servers I knew via IP address. If the USA makes dollars worthless then, well we all know about hyperinflation.

I also don't know how large the Namecoin movement actually is. Presumably there are some serious enthusiasts, on the political side of things - but merged mining would risk making Namecoin irrelevant, no? If most miners acted like me, and immediately exchanged any mined Namecoins for Bitcoins instead (since we joined Slush's pool to mine Bitcoins, no?) would it not trash the value of Namecoins? The market would be mostly sellers, hence driving prices down.


But if merged mining can give me either additional valuable cryptocurrency (that I can actually *use*), or simply boost the number of Bitcoins I receive, then surely it's a no-brainer to add the functionality?


Slush - not sure if you'll answer this directly - but what would it cost you to implement merged mining? Obviously your servers will need to check the hashes we produce against two chains instead of one; is this purely additional load on your CPUs? And are your servers currently CPU-bound? If the only additional cost would be CPU cycles, and you've got loads to spare already, then I vote 'yes' (if there's a market for these namecoin things, of course).

Smiley


Finally - haven't said this yet, but THANKS to Slush for maintaining the pool. Yes, I'm sure you're making money, old chap - but so am I. And I wouldn't have waited this long for my second block if mining solo - I wouldn't have risked the capital on hardware given likely time of payback. The regular payments from your pool kept me keen, and whilst most would say that 84 BTC isn't that much money, it's more than the electricity and the *new dedicated hardware* cost... and since I invest the BTC into another investment which has risen in value, this is good.

There's plenty of competition for pools, but I'm sticking with Slush. Fancy mining software and front end stuff means nothing to me - I've coded up my own monitoring system and have found that plain old Phoenix with phatk and the latest drivers (on Linux headless) give me higher hash rates than most other miners. Perhaps they're using Windows or sharing the machine with general computing needs? I'm using Macs for my business, the mining rigs are built from spare hardware and I don't use them for anything else.

So a hip hip hurrah for Slush's pool (ok, I'm a bit light-headed from getting another block, hahaha)  Grin

...so I give in to the rhythm, the click click clack
I'm too wasted to fight back...
