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.

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?

maybe next you can register a .bit domain for us to use? really support the NMC network lol

I bought bitcoincz.bit already, but didn't find a time to configure DNS yet.

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...

You didn't miss anything special, except that such huge income from NMC will get lower by time, because

a) NMC difficulty is climbing up
b) When more users on pool claim their NMC address, your share on NMC will be lower. Currently only 1/3 of pool members have filled NMC wallet, so your income is something like 3x higher than it should be thanks to your hashrate.

But yes, so far it's pretty nice boost :-)

You didn't respond me my questions about possible connection issues or higher stale rate. If your connection doesn't have any serious troubles, then it's just a luck. Thanks to calculations done by cosurgi, pool is performing as expected in long term, so I don't worry about bad performance in last two days (yes, it was lower than it should be, it's without a debate).

Thanks for the advice, my connection should be alright as the rigs are in datacenters.  Will continue and check over a longer period.  I don't believe I am always unlucky Smiley.  Thanks for the chance to mine extra NMCs Smiley

Tor is a good & brilliant choice.
It may not be good for file p2p downloading, coz of huge continuous heavy bandwidth requirement.
But may be good for mining. coz their is no need for huge bandwidth for mining.
Only problem is needing instant continuous connection.

Slush:

Is there an issue with payout on BTC right now? Just curious because I had my threshold set to .25 and it was working fine but... Sometime overnight I passed that threshold on 'confirmed reward' (I think it was probably 20 or more confirmations ago) and it is just sitting there, showing in the the my account section but not sending. Since we are down to 10 confirmations left on that 8 hour block from yesterday and the .25 was confirmed and exceeded before that block I think it has been sitting there for a while. I was just wondering if you had set a minimum threshold or if there might be another issue. I just don't recall it taking so long in the past so thought I'd ask.

I second this post.  I to am having a problem with payout...it has gone .33 over the payout threshold without paying out.  This is BTC only though as i have had 2 NMC payouts in the last 12 hours where i have had no BTC payouts.

  Definetly agree on the badnwidth issue.  On the connection issue; you are able to pick your exit nodes which should allow one to find nodes that have the best connection between them and the pool of choice.

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!

So I guess for now we throw torify in front of the miner and if this takes off wait for (or help with) patching miners to try and proxy .onion domains?  Or maybe I should say, adding a new user, turning off LP and doing torify python phoenix.py ... Just Works.  And cgminer uses curl which supports SOCKS (and of course see the Tor FAQ about SOCKS and potential privacy issues) so it should Just Work too, but I haven't fiddled with that yet.

Find the above useful?  Send tips to 1KjoJihf7GWHWeQFhDmaw4g7xorkmD13u

What do you think about paying protection money to a hypothetical multi-gbps attacker
at a rate of say -50 - -80% of what a datacenter will take for professional anti-DDoS/mitigation services?

Logical problem here. That might work for the first, but what happens when the second, third, fourth, ad nauseum shows up and wants their cut. Won't work.

10-100gbps attacker has methods to deter other, smaller parties from conflicting with his financial interests.

That sounds like a terrible idea.

Technically speaking, it's not just multiple attackers. If someone like slush went that route, all each attacker has to do is create more attacker identities and keep threatening him until he goes bankrupt/quits.

10-100gbps attacker has methods to deter other, smaller parties from conflicting with his financial interests.

I suppose you could hire an attacker (perhaps also with performance incentives) to attack the other attackers, but there's a huge legal risk there and the attacker makes profits that can be reinvested at a later time into attacking slush, meaning the attacker has a better position against slush over time. Also keep in mind that the attacker is likely stealing resources (i.e. using trojans/malware to steal computer and internet access for a botnet) and slush may not be able to steal, so a successful strategy for slush would probably focus on avoidance/hiding rather than interaction with DDOS attackers.

I think the tor idea is a much better idea. It can probably be extended into giving out an onion address to each user and hiding the pool server's IPs. If there's a DDOS against one onion address and attack packets reach the mining IPs, just nullroute that onion address. Only issues would be the web server IP (or onion address) would probably have to be known to many for signups, beginner info, etc. and reliance on the tor network. Tor does have some DDOS protections built-in, as described here.

So if I'm a 100 gbps attacker, and you are a 100 gbps attacker...how do you deter me from destroying slush ?

Do you have my IP ?  Do you have my contact info ?  Do you have anyway of causing any detriment to me ?

Nope.

And you think that currently and in the future there is only one of that size. You think that he would go out of his way to stop others trying the same? Remember, no honor amongst thieves and someone running a botnet of that size is surely a thief...

Note I didn't even begin to cover the moral issue there. I wouldn't mine at a pool that was paying off attackers. I bet lots of others wouldn't either. I think the Tor option is a much better route to follow as mentioned by Notawake.
