Last few weeks were really crazy. It started with merged mining hacking, then DDoS attack, cancelling linode, finding another provider and migration from Xen to VMWare. And finally debugging that strange disk issue and migrating from VMWare to bare metal. Of course with very long and painful outages, but sometimes many weird things happen at the same moment.

Now pool runs nicely, actually the server is idling for current hashrate. Everything I wish is to have pool stable for some time, because I simply need some rest.

Great job.  A 34 hour block wasn't fun.  But it will be worth something, but not to me, all of my shares were submitted before the crash.  I bet scoring provides me little on that round.

tinmann: I'll recalculate all those blocks affected by outages with proportional method. You're right that score method don't work well when miners cannot submit their shares. So I'm sure you'll have something from those blocks, too.

slush, hats off to you for your effort and final success in bringing the pool up. i hope you don't get upset about the unhappy campers that complained about non-payment during the downtime. you will notice that there were only a few of them versus a LOT more people who showed their patience and supported you. it's bad mining strategy if someone hasn't set up their miner to fall back to another pool in case of downtime and it's not your fault if anyone has lost any amount of mining time due to this reason.

kudos.

Once you learn how to use cgminer I guarantee* you won't ever use anything else.
That is so true and more people find that fact out each and every day, only to wonder why they hadn't made the switch to CGMiner earlier...

omg ... why didn't I try this earlier? Thx for the info.

Hmm, gave it a try
Result: Doesn't work so well for Windows users .. apparently it was able to read GPU frequency and fan rate, but not to write it, so all the smart controls weren't working ..

cgminer works like a charm for me on Windows 7 x64 with and MSI R5830 Twin Frozer II, it automatically switched to deepbit when Slush went offline and now it seems to have switched back to Slush.

On that note, welcome back Slush ! Thanks for all your hard work !

Works just fine on Win7 x64 w/ 3x5970s (my watercooled workstation).  The rest of my rigs are linux coin usb key.  I have noticed any difference in performance between Windows version and Linux one.  The again I don't have Catalyst or Afterburner installed so maybe something caused a conflict.

Funny to see just how quickly people believe the world suddenly owes them something. Even if he had needed a week, we can feel lucky to have the pool back up and running. And even if not, too bad, game over. You can complain as much as you want about your payouts, if you need a two/three days worth of payout to pay your energy bill so badly, you are either greedy or a entrepreneurial failure for you shouldn't have invested more in rigs than you can afford to sustain.

OK. Pool is up for 11 hours without any crash, which is very good sign - it's much longer than before while running on VMWare, so that issue looks fixed.

I see a little higher stale ratio on some miners. Nothing strange - around 0.8-1.3% stale, but it should be near 0.3%. It's pretty normal - I didn't expected that it will be "reinstall and forget", every environment need some specific tuning.

So everything seems stable, it's time to process payments!

Hmmmm, write me a PM, we can make a deal.

I take it that's why the confirmed and unconfirmed reward is staying the same in spite of several rounds passing - same for NMC.
