Install the client on your machine or you can use the https://exchange.bitparking.com/main as one with a little fussing around with the deposit address just make sure that you change it in your settings after every send or the coins will be lost as they only accept deposits once.

What genius thought that was a good idea?  Would permanent adress have been too difficult.  I have no interest in namecoin so I will be sending 100% of my coins to the exchange.  Because of bitparking's stupid 1 address = 1 transfer system I had to install nameoin client to generate a permanent adress and then use that to transfer it to bitparking's one time addresses.

I mean honestly who thought single use address was a good idea.  It can't simplify things on their end.  It doesn't help the user.  It seems like something a government employee would come up with. ..... ok rant over.

Although there were some rumors on IRC and forum already, I'd like to officially announce support Merged mining for Namecoins on my pool!

cool!

and thanks for costing me an hours sleep. thats what I get for logging in in the middle of the night, seeing this post, and then installing namecoind (without having a clue as to what I was doing mind you, never paid attention to namecoin till now) on my ubuntu box.

heh.

Tried to change my NameCoin address and it keeps saying the confirmation link is invalid.

I put it as the exchange address before reading that it was only a onetime address, and trying to change it to a namecoin generate one  Sad

Edit: Nevermind. THe confirmation link uses the namecoin address as the confirmation number, but the cancel link has the confirmation number in the url. Should probably fix this

As far as I know there is no GUI client yet. If there is someone please steer us.

Yeah that's the part that is downloading the block chain and keeping it up to date. to run commands open another command prompt.



((Step 5's  Note : on windows, this message may not appear, and you need to open a new terminal to type other commands.))

Windows simplified instructions to setup namecoin & get your namecoin address

1) Download the windows namecoind binary http://dot-bit.org/files/namecoin_win32.7z

2) Extract namecoind.exe and save to a folder, any folder (example c:\namecoin\)

3) Open a command prompt to where you saved namecoind.exe, and run namecoind  ( "namecoind")

4) You will get an error message.  This is normal.  It will create the folder for config file and install some files.  
Read the error message it will tell you where to make a config file.  

For Windows Vista/7 users it likely will be in:
Code:
C:\Users\<YOUR USERNAME HERE>\AppData\Roaming\Namecoin\

For Windows xP:
Huh Maybe someone can let me know and I will update it

Note: AppData folder may be hidden in Vista/Win7.  If you can't see it then in explorer hit Alt key, select View menu then Folder Options, turn on hidden files & folders.

5) Once you locate your configuration folder (you should see bunch of files including a wallet.dat) create a new text file in that folder, name it bitcoin.conf  (yeah it is bitcoind not namecoind).
Edit the text file and copy these lines

Code:
rpcuser=your_user
rpcpassword=your_pass
rpcport=8336
daemon=1

Obviously change your_user & your_pass to something unique.  It doesn't matter what being unencrypted it provides only token security.

Note: Sometimes in windows it will save the file as a text file.  For example bitcoin.conf.txt not bitcoin.conf.
If it does: Hit Alt key, select Tools, Select View menu then Folder Options, uncheck "hide known extensions".  Edit the filename so there is no txt.  It should be bitcoin.conf exactly.

6) Go back to your command prompt and run namecoind.exe again ("namecoind").  If you get no error then good.  
On Windows there will be nothing but blinking prompt.   DON'T CLOSE THIS WINDOW.  Just minimize it if you want.

7) Open another command prompt to folder you saved namecoind.exe.  Just to be super clear this is a second command prompt, different than your previous one.  You must leave the first command prompt w/ namecoind running open.

Enter:
Code:
namecoind listreceivedbyaddress 0 true

It will display something like this:
Code:
[
    {
        "address" : "NKZTF7365tuyEUZZZZZZZZZZZX8sL8S7a",
        "account" : "",
        "label" : "",
        "amount" : 0.00000000,
        "confirmations" : 0
    }
]

The "NKZTF7365tuyEUZZZZZZZZZZZX8sL8S7a" (this one is not real/valid) is your namecoin address.  Copy it into your account page in slush's pool.

a) Pool already mined over 10000 Namecoins (and it is going up in very fast rate, see NMC stats. I'll start giving away those coins to pool's Namecoin miners after few days using their proportional hashpower. First namecoin miners actively mining on pool may expect really big namecoin rewards.
Do you mean the hash power we're putting in now, or when you start giving them out? If it's the latter it seems it would be better for me to use a pool that is already giving them out and come back to you later?

looks like currently a tad over 17k NMC mined. (343 blocks according to stats page.)

I'm not asking how much he's collecting, I'm asking exactly how he will divide between the users. Apparently there is no accounting for each block like there is with bitcoins.

Well a crude accounting would be to group all namecoin blocks found between bitcoinblocks to that bitcoin block.

i.e.
block 124  had 7 namecoin blocks
block 125 had 14 namecoin blocks
block 126 had 0 namecoin blocks
block 127 had 1 namecoin block.

Then simply use standard method of splitting the bitcoin block to also split the namecoin block.

Not saying this IS what slush will do just pointing out a moderately fair distribution isn't that difficult.  Would be nice to get some clarification from slush though.

And I wasn't answering you, i was posting an update to  the 10k figure in your quote. I'm staying here because you don't really know when he will implement the accounting and we start getting paid. (unless you spend all day monitoring the thread.)

Yes, I'll use similar method for already mined namecoins. I'll definitely look in history how much user mined for pool since merged mining started.

I just started using this pool, I had previously gave up using it because i could not keep track of what i was being paid for my shares. but i am interested again because the pool is offereing merged mining and i am interested in namecoin.

Is there a way that i can see my lifetime shares. or how can i work out what i am paid on average per share over x number of shares?
not knowing this puts me off mining here.

Sweet, now we just need to ad Ixcoin, I0coin, Solidcoin, tenebrix, Fairbrix, Encoin, and litecoin to the pool!



Ok, before I get mutilated in this thread I WAS JUST KIDDING.  I didn't have much interest in Namecoin either, but I figured since I can at least trade 'em for btc I might as well take advantage...
