My statement of opinion above is based on the number of blocks waiting to be confirmed at any given time. For example as of now Oz has 9 blocks on confirmation while Slush has 6. And as I said in my previous post, current stats aren't accurate as Oz has a consistently higher hash. This is just my observations from mining at both for awhile.

You don't suppose the fact that Ozcoin requires 120 confirmations and Slush requires only 100 confirmations might account for perhaps 1/6 of the difference there? Which narrows the difference between 9 confirming and 6 confirming a fair bit, or were you simply unaware of that difference?

Thralen

It does, but as the current difference is 6 to 16 even the 20 extra confirms doesn't make me feel better about Slush. This is all relative as Oz has a higher hash rate right now.

I see. Unfortunately you're looking at a short term difference there. I'd only be confortable saying there's a significant difference between pools if I had a significant number of observations which I could compare. A second problem is defining the luck. This can be done by comparing the pool's hashrate and blocks found to the networks' hashrate and blocks found. If it is greater than expected, you're lucky. Or you can compare total round shares / Difficulty. Once you've determined how you define you're luck, you can figure out how many observations you need to compare the pools. Or compare results for each pool to the expected population results.

See the last two sets of charts at https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=77000.msg855078#msg855078 for these two types of luck measurement.

You don't suppose the fact that Ozcoin requires 120 confirmations and Slush requires only 100 confirmations might account for perhaps 1/6 of the difference there? Which narrows the difference between 9 confirming and 6 confirming a fair bit, or were you simply unaware of that difference?

Using confirming blocks is not a robust measurement of luck. But if you want to do this, you'll need to take into account the pools' % of network hashrate as well as the number of confirms until valid.

Some short term unluckiness might take forever to recover. Today the pool had back to back 9hr and 8h45m rounds. Both of these are 99.3+ on the CDF.

What are the chances of that? 1/20,000?
The only good news was the next 2 rounds were short making the average about 4.5hrs for 4 rounds.

Three invalids in one day? Is this another problem with the database as has happened in the past?

No, it's just unbelievable luck. You can see that all broadcasted blocks are valid, we just lose the fight in bitcoin network, unfortunately.

Hello, I'm having trouble connecting to the pool using my current .bat on cgminer.

cgminer -o http://api2.bitcoin.cz:8332 -u myworker.namehere -p MyWorkerPass

Am I doing something wrong? I was using GUIminer, but upgraded to two 7970s today and GUIminer doesn't support those. Can anyone point me to a guide on how to connect to this pool?

AFAIK cgminer needs / on the end of URL. So try http://api.bitcoin.cz:8332/.

We are not going through a bump of bad luck in pool... we just
felt into the deepest pit of misery and despair Undecided

Two rounds of 10 hours each in less than 24 hours, I don't know
how "organofcorti" even dares to offer an insurance...

I dare because I take the long view. Feel free to take me up on the offer - I will provide insurance privately if you don't want to use GLBSE.

Edit: Another reason I'm happy to offer insurance is that I'm confident that Slush's pool stats are accurate.

It gets even worse: two 11h blocks within 24 hours and a third one is well on its way at 9:21+

Short term pool luck is down to 37% damnit

But I spoke to the men in charge and demanded to get some 1-10 minute blocks next to get back on track.

Is there a way to force payout? I have some 0.11 btc on this pool, but I haven't been using the place since over a year. I don't mind if my account is deleted due to inactivity, but only after I retrieved the remaining bitcoins.

Change your minimum payout to 0.1 and wait 5 minutes.

Yup, that's what I did, though it took until now for the payout. Problem resolved either way.

Suggestion:
It would be nice if you could add stats and how many bitcoins each worker mined that didn't refresh every block.
And could also feature graphs like eligius does.

My hard drive died and I lost all my bitcoins, help me out? 19BsFvdjtVDPHhdcYqBUi1bZ9xRopzbRjC
