    Pardon my ignorance of NMC. Where do I get a NMC wallet?
    This website is all about the new namecoin wallet. http://dot-bit.org/Main_Page
    It has a list on the right hand side for different operating systems.
    Version 0.3.24.64 :
            Linux 32bits by Khal
            Linux 64bits by Khal
            Windows by twobits

    I wouldn't go for the earlier downloads, they had some flaws and most of the mining pools will support the new 3.24.64 distro.

    Once you get it installed look at this page http://dot-bit.org/InstallAndConfigureNamecoin
    It has the same caching format as bitcoin, meaning it needs to get all of the blocks before it can payout.  Then you add the namecoin address to your favorite mining pool.[/list]

    Yeah, I tried running the Windows version by twobits. I setup a config file as instructed, but namecoind doesn't seem to work.

    Note: The namecoind file will only open and have a flashing underscorer "_".  You need to open another cmd prompt to type in the configuration, or the "namecoind getinfo" command.  You have to cd to the directory first.  If this is your first time using cd (change directory) then I would research it first.  For instance mine is in a folder on the desktop so I would type "cd \Users\Username\Desktop\NameCoin"
    Then you can type in the namecoind and the other commands (type "namecoind help").

    Yeah, I tried running the Windows version by twobits. I setup a config file as instructed, but namecoind doesn't seem to work.

    This thread helped me:
    How to control Namecoind.exe

    Just go to the folder where namecoind.exe is installed and double-click it to run it.  A window will appear with just a blinking cursor. That is namecoind running. Just minimize that window so that it continues to run so you can give it commands from another command prompt window.

    Back out of that folder where namecoind.exe is and shift-right-click on that folder and then choose 'open command window here' from the context menu
    ( or else just open a command prompt in the usual way and navigate to that folder ).

    Now you can give it commands by typing things like (you may need to give it a little bit of time to download the blockchain before giving it commands* ):
    namecoind getinfo
    namecoind help ( to get a full list of the commands... to create addresses... to send namecoins to other addresses etc. etc. )


    *You can check what the latest namecoin block is here:
    http://explorer.dot-bit.org

    And then use that 'namecoind getinfo' command to see if it is uptodate before using other commands.

    Then you can type in the namecoind and the other commands (type "namecoind help").

      Everything he said and;

      If you are able to create a bitcoin.conf file with proper file extension you can do the following;
    In the same directory as your namecoind make a new text file. In it include only the following one line;
    Code:
    cmd

     Now save the file as "namecmd.bat" and in the future when you run namecoind, you will then just run namecmd.bat and already be in the correct directory/prompt to run "namecoind" commands in. Its not much but will make life easier for anyone not accustomed to using cd to a bunch of long name directories.


      Cheers

    the 3rd 6hour+ block in 24 hours?? whats going on here  Shocked  database messed up or very bad luck or both?

    There were database problems for a half of a hour, but it didn't affected all hashpower. So it's basically bad luck, but it only balances very good luck right after DDoS attacks, when we found many blocks with really tiny hashpower.

    Also watching only round time isn't good enough, because hashpower (both network and pool) is climbing down, but difficulty is still high. That last 8+ hour round had "only" 7mil shares, which is not extremely bad (however it's still much worse than average).

    I managed to get namecoind to generate an address by redirecting the cmd "bitnamecoind.exe getnewaddress | clip" output to the clipboard. I am looking for documentation of the windows bitcoind syntax.

    Just use 'bitcoind help' to get a list of commands. If thats what you meant.

    Highly experimental feature; site: lcir2ce5utha5xoo.onion, mining: lcir2ce5utha5xoo.onion:8332

    Note: At this moment you need to turn off long polling on profile page for mining over tor. There's 30-minute cache of settings for already used worker in pool core, so I recommend you to create blank new worker "tor" with LP disabled. If there will be enough interest, I'll modify pool to support LP & Ntime rolling over Tor as well (which dramatically improve Tor mining experience).

    Let me know if you're interested!

    Am i missing something?

    Merged mining has changed the whole game ..increasing BTC mining profit by 42%.

    Why would anyone NOT be mining on slush's pool right now?

     [1468195diff]     0.0685 BTC/day per 100MH * $3.16 = $0.2165

     [94036diff] add ~ 15.62x .0685 = 1.07NMC/day per 100MH * .027BTC @ 3.16 = $.0912

    94036/1468195=15.62

    Well I tried it, but it seems that my takings on BTC is about half that of other pools although I do have additional NMCs.   Not sure if I am purely unlucky or not.  Will try it again and do another comparison.

    [edit] found it here https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Original_Bitcoin_client/API_Calls_list

    Easy way to do this (your way is much shorter, but this automates the task to just double-clicking a batch file esp. for getinfo command):

    in the same directory where you have namecoind.exe, create a batch file called getnewadd.bat

    now open the file in notepad (or just right-click and select 'edit') and paste the following code:

    Code:
    @ECHO Welcome...
    @ECHO off
    namecoind.exe getnewaddress
    PAUSE

    make sure namecoind.exe is running. now double click on the batch file to run it. right-click anywhere inside the command window that comes up showing the address and select 'mark'. now select the generated address with your mouse and press enter. it is now copied to your clipboard and you can paste it anywhere you want (e.g. in your account page at slush's pool)

    same applies for all other commands as well just copy this batch file and replace the getnewaddress command with something else (e.g. getinfo) and you have easy way of running the namecoin commands. it is very much possible to combine all these commands in a single batch file and provide a menu structure for each commans, but i am too lazy to do it right now.

    My BTC take over the last 24-36 hrs on slush was also "unlucky" (see posts above) BUT I've been doing the merged mining since he switched over and I can say that over that longer period (many days) my BTC take has been about what is expected, and the NMC mining gives a 30-40% boost in total income if you convert it directly.

    I think it's a no brainer and have switched all my miners to slush's pool (I was mining across several pools before now)

    Well I tried it, but it seems that my takings on BTC is about half that of other pools although I do have additional NMCs.   Not sure if I am purely unlucky or not.  Will try it again and do another comparison.

    But am I right to say that the luck will average out over sometime and slush won't be different from others when BTC  is considered?  And actually better if we add the NMC?

    My BTC take over the last 24-36 hrs on slush was also "unlucky" (see posts above) BUT I've been doing the merged mining since he switched over and I can say that over that longer period (many days) my BTC take has been about what is expected, and the NMC mining gives a 30-40% boost in total income if you convert it directly.

    Could you please explain this?  I have never heard of it.

    Tor (The Onion Routing, http://torproject.org) is decentralized anonymizing network. When you install it's client (there are Vidalia bundles for all major platforms containing Tor client, Polipo http proxy, Vidalia control center and TorButton, extension for Firefox), you can browse Internet anonymously (as far as you are following some basic security rules.

    Yesterday I created "Tor hidden service", which is exposing my pool as anonymous server in Tor network. When you're using http://lcir2ce5utha5xoo.onion:8332 for your miners, then:
    a) Service provider (me) don't know your IP
    b) Your ISP don't know that you're accessing pool
    c) You don't know where's that service located (however this is not true, because pool is accessible also thru normal IP address).

    You may be interested in point a); while creating anonymous account on the pool, you can mine completely anonymous coins. Even I don't know who you're, except your login and payout address. Unfortunately routing miners thru Tor network will lead in much more stale shares, because Tor network is sometimes pretty unstable and laggy. It may be better when LP&Ntime rolling will work over Tor, but don't expect <1% stale rate now.

    I'm interested in the fact, that Tor network have around 3000 relays worldwide (torstatus.blutmagie.de), so exposing pool directly as Tor service is like to have hundreds of entry points to the pool; it's hard to shut down all of them at same time ;-).

    This testing of Tor hidden service is just a part of bigger picture of fighting against DoS. Currently the hidden service endpoint is the same balancer as public one, so null routing of this IP will shut down hidden service as well. But some things are moving on...
