About incredibly bad pool luck in recent days - I'm absolutely sure that there wasn't anything wrong with the pool. I have done pretty good reporting about current pool status & sms monitoring when anything goes wrong. I also checked everything twice during those extra-long rounds and didn't see anything wrong. It's just damn variance :-). We can just keep hashing and hope that it will average out soon ;-).

Did anyone order an extra long round with a side of frustration (supersized)??

6+ hours yet again. Damn you variance!

Wow, massive GHash surge....
May be GPUMAX is here ? Smiley

GPU Max was doing some testing yesterday, pretty sure they hit quite a few pools.  Pretty fun to see the IRC room light up when people notice a user has more than hashing power than the other top 24 users combined.  And a lot of fun for me when I start trying to figure out if somebody found a way to slip bad shares through the pool software or if it's legit.

What's the average user's hashing power? Smiley

Still curious Tongue

Odd, my miner was idle for a few rounds and its average hash rate of the last 10 rounds dropped and then it became active again and a few hours later the average mhash of the last 10 rounds has dropped even more... Huh

Its 100 mhash/s lower then the miner. Shocked

Thanks to some glitch on blockexplorer, two rounds (10663, 10664) are marked as invalid, but they're fine. I'll fix it tomorrow...

5 invalids? That 14 hour block was bad enough, not to mention the bitcoin price dropping like a rock. I want to forget this week...

Any guesses as to how many of the 8 invalid blocks over the last day and a half are actually valid?

Interesting how the hash rate varies some days in the 100s gigahashes. Will GPUMAX involvement hurt the average (and incredibly loyal) miner in any way?

There's a lot of talk about GPUMax's supposed hashing power, does anyone have a figure of what they project to actually have?  Off the top of my head, their hash power (assuming it's of large magnitude) will drop a miner's payout per round, however the increased hashing will help complete blocks faster.  All you really have to do is compare mining at Slush vs Deepbit.  I find I get ~ 1/3 the payout at deepbit per round but they're on average completing 3x as many rounds than we are here.  Effectively it's pretty close to the same returns for a given time period.  I do better with Slush on good days, and on bad days at Slush I'd be better to mine at Deepbit.  With that said, I'm pretty loyal to Slush but the last couple of weeks have been a beating (As it has for everyone else).  So it's like any other variable in the variance game. It'll all balance out over time.

Note: I don't mine a deepbit, my backup is BTCGuild, but the numbers work for theoretical analysis.
