so i just got home from work and see mining.bitcoin.cz is still down and has been now for about 24 hrs. I have had my miners going pretty much the whole time at about roughly 1 Ghash/s.
I guess my question is am i going to be compensated for the work I put in or should i just call the last 24 hrs a waste and start mining somewhere else?
also any update on or ETA on the website? i read a couple posts back that slush said should be up in a couple hours but that was last night...  Huh

everything is explained in the thread

all i got from the last couple pages are...

1. website was compromised
2. moving to new data center
3. mining is still working and we will be paid by slush per block instad of PPS
4. passwords where salt and peppered and possibly ketchuped
5. fight club mining link was talked about when it shouldnt have been

i apreciate the work done by slush to keep up his pool but all i want to know is if its worth to continue mining on his pool or switch wile he works out the kinks. thanks


I appreciate his efforts and this is why I decided to stay with him (his pool) even under suboptimal circumstances. I can mine without interruption, and I assume rewarding will be taken care of once things are back to normal. He will open up the front-end when he feels it is ok to do so. This is my personal opinion, based on what I have seen so far.

It is only him who can provide authoritative information - but I believe he has more urgent activities than focusing on communication. And I am ok with that.

right on. Im still mining on slushs pool but just wondering whats going on. like you said though he probably has more urgent things to focus on and i guess i dont really have a choice but to be ok with that.

As far as I'm concerned, as long as we're able to mine, it's worth it.  Slush will make sure we get what's coming to us.  I've been with him in situations like this in the past and he always comes through.

I trust him implicitly.

3. mining is still working and we will be paid by slush per block instad of PPS


I hope we don't get paid out without PPS because it would [truly] suck to earn what a GPU card owner earns for the last two days of delivered work. I put out about 1000 times more work than the average person using a medium range [single] GPU card.

Just on the day of the outage I discovered 2 blocks. (Got a screen cap of it too)

I am the last person in a circle to be "the greedy type" but lets hope some metrics or thoughts are put into play when dispersing funds. Like one Mod mentioned in the Custom Hardware Mining board, I pay out more in fees than the average GPU owner earns in a day (possibly even in a month if I am not mistaken). Or at least that is what the Mod hinted at when they ran the numbers against various fee sizes.

Edit: Anyway, it really takes the wind out of my sails just hearing about that.

If anything, he could probably take our average hash rate from prior blocks and apply it as the missing data to spread the btc accordingly.  My hash rate doesn't vary too much and is pretty constant.

That's not too bad. I am glad many of us are sticking arround. I haven't been doing this for long but from what I have seen Slush is doing more than 1 man should be expected to do on his own in such a short amount of time.

I know, it's just that it sucks if it did turn out that way. I'd prefer it he took my portion and put it towards the pool infrastructure to make it robust for the next few months.

Or put it towards buying expensive services that make it very hard for an attacker to succeed. That I wouldn't mind. Though as others have said, it is not necessarily a money problem. It is very hard to combat DDOS without seriously scaling like crazy.

-----------------------------

Either way, I don't think it really needs to be argued that Slush is doing his best to get things going again. Just keep in mind that in deciding to stick with his pool and getting the profits of a GPU miner for 2 days really hits home when the next difficulty change continues to come ever closer.

OK, so i wanna make sure.

We should use:

stratum.bitcoin.cz   port 3333 right?Huh??





I see conflicting mention of ports and before I was using 8332 for a port and it did not resolve once i pointed to stratum.bitcoin.cz

That's no surprise that OVH didn't respond to this ticket for hours, but at 11pm UTC I realized that there's another succesful password reset at OVH. This is complete mystery to me, because I'm aboslutely sure that nobody else had access to my mailbox and the email with reset link has been untouched (unread, not deleted). I'd say that attacker won't bother by changing status of the email to "unread", but he'd delete the email instead.

This time I realized that the attacker resetted the machine with the wallet to rescue mode, which means that I lost the control to this machine. I was still succesful by logging into the database and I took the snapshot of database and transferred it to safe location. Few seconds since the migration finished, attackers restarted all remaining machines to rescue mode.

So far it looks like yet another inside job, like Linode two years ago. Or attackers found some shortcut how to gain access to Manager without confirming the request from the email. I don't know what's worse option. I'll investigate this issue in detail later and I hope OVH won't close eyes to this.


Did OVH already told you something? I'm interested in knowing what they have to say about this issue.

I know I passed the 1 bitcoin threshold during this site outage, but haven't yet been paid.  Are you temporarily delaying payouts or is there genuinely a problem?

Could say it's part of the risk of doing business. Looks to me like Slush is taking on the lion's share of the risk. No one is making you stay so if it doesn't work the way you like it can always start your own pool or go to a different one. As far as how much you earn great you got paid for it at the rate that was promised then, if the rate offered now isn't good enough then that is when the idea of a market force suggests you go else ware. Seams simple enough to me.

Today I had a phone call with OVH guys. They told me that they have "nothing to investigate" because I'm the only who reported the problem. I asked them for logs, they have nothing more than list of IPs who accessed the Manager. These IPs are some random IPs from whole round, looks like proxies.

Way to go slush, you got a donation coming your way as soon as I get my next payment! lol

And it would be nice if there was something we could do about that ovh bullshit.  Hard to believe that they will pull the "it's not our problem" line...
