Plan of removing the getwork support

Once the hashrate of stratum backend reaches 90% of total pool hashrate, the fee for getwork miners will rise to 10%.

nice plan, pickpocketing clueless miners.

You shouldn't be clueless if you mine...

Clueless miners? If you mean n00b, I doubt it. GUIminer does stratum natively.

If you mean long term miners who have no idea of what changes have occurred, then honestly they shouldn't be mining. A miner needs to keep him or herself up to date and be prepared to learn constantly. As a miner you can't just "set and forget".

If you mean CPU botnets, well I personally see that as a good thing.

Last I heard, slush promoted Stratum heavily to users who aren't already using it.  Same as BTC Guild, and I'm sure almost every other pool that implemented Stratum or GBT.  There is absolutely no reason for a miner to still cling to the outdated getwork protocol.  Worst case scenario they should run the Stratum Proxy.  The only resistance I've seen from running native miners are people on Phoenix.  If you can run phoenix, you can run the proxy, it is not difficult (easier than setting up phoenix, thats for sure), and offers immediate performance benefits.

This isn't a case of pushing brand new technology too fast.  It's a case of miners actively refusing to modernize and update to a protocol that is better in every single way.

If you have ever been on his pool - there are HUGE RED warnings if you are using getwork.  There are notes everywhere!

Not only would you have to be clueless - you would have to be blind to miss this requirement and how to handle it.

Not only that, Slush will help anyone who asks.  And has been warning people for a considerable amount of time.

He is NOT picking pockets.  And he is probably one of the nicest and most helpful people (especially to newbies) that I have "met" since i have been involved with mining.

Back off man.

Thank you for support :-). My motivation is to consolidate the infrastructure, not to rob pool clueless miners...

Jeff Garzik says that using vardiff=32 (variable, self adjusting difficulty) implemented in the pool stops Avalon ASIC from restarting, probably too high network load caused problems.

I'm afraid that we need vardiff, to remain competitive.

I'm working on vardiff, it will be available very soon. Of course I'm fully aware that ASICs won't work on dif1 very well.

Having 6 non-stratum blocks in a row is a little unnerving.

? Only block 222002 (16446) is version 1, the rest are version 2. Why do you think it is version 1?

OVH (datacentre where the pool is hosted) has some problems with datacentre connectivity, they're working on it, but pool seems to be unreachable for most of people now :-(.

because they all have nonzero NMC reward.

EDIT: oh, I get it, they managed to produce valid NMC blocks, but not BTC blocks.

Yes, non-zero NMC balance doesn't mean that the block itself is version 2. It may also indicate that getwork pool produced low-difficulty block in meantime, so it generated namecoins, but not bitcoins.

In few hours I'll migrate main database to another machine. Website will be down for approximate 30 minutes. Mining will be affected only for few seconds during application restart.

Database migration was smooth, website downtime was 20 minutes + few short restarts. Also OVH issues seems to be fixed, I see zero packet loss from many of network locations again.
