And I would recommend others do the same!!! Anyone who has had questions answered, anyone who mined throughout the entire website outage, etc.  SLUSH HAS BUSTED HIS BUT FOR ALL OF US.  As far as I'm concerned that's the best way for us to return the favor and help him out.

In alot of ways you are right! And I have a huge amount of respect for the guy!
But this is also I expect a job for him.
Ignoring the GetWork users and presuming everyone pays 2% thats $1000 dollars a day. And its 365 days a year.
Even if the server fees are half that he's still doing alright for himself! Invest the money in a new miner then you and him benefit!

Available for small programming jobs. PM me a Spec and I'll give you a price!

Why don't you ask him how my btc he lost in the hack?  That he covered out of his own pocket?

What about the other times in the past he's done the same thing?

And what do you think his operating costs are?  Especially now that he's at Amazon?  What about his time?

Respect.

Respect.

Don't get me wrong, The guy has been a rock! And deserves huge respect!
And it really wouldn't surprise me if his server costs are hundreds of dollars a day!

I was just trying to point out the guy is being compensated for it though!
But in his situation I don't think the money is really the issue any more. Its far more about being at the top! And the technical challenge!

You often find things are boring when they are going well! And the times when you spend 20 hours working solid are the most rewarding. To the average user here 15% of their earnings mean far more to them than I expect it would to him!

Yeah, running this pool is his business, right?  He is being compensated.

But how about you?  In your job, have you ever put out way more than your customers (or your boss) expected?  Did you get a little something extra in your pay, or a good tip, for the effort, or did you just get a "Thanks, great effort -- now get back to work" for your reward?  Which situation would motivate you more?

No one will force you to leave a tip on the table, but take a surf through the forums and compare slush with the peeps running 50BTC and BTC Guild.  They are much better compensated at 3%-5% in fees, but my non-scientific assessment is that they give poorer service.

He's got his first bits on his sig, but I can't convert them into a full address.  I've pm'ed him for his donation address.  When he gets back to me I can pass it along.

If you had followed the info provided, you could easily convert it. I am not sure if it is OK to do that, so i will not post it, but as a hint it ends with 'BGBB'

5120-01-518-6126: Mining is optional, but Slush's pool pays off best of all pools I've ever mined for. Not to mention the dedication and great attitude of it's owner.

I like to think of a mining pool as a cooperative, a win-win thing. That also means we all share the bad days.

Something happened with the pool between 17701 and 17702 which was unfortunately at the end of a block.  I know it was the pool it was current shares CDF stuck for about 5 minutes.

17701 2013-04-26 18:00:37 1:07:06 8627099 1291 0.00000001 none 233280  25.50062000 97 confirmations left  

vs

17700 2013-04-26 16:53:31 0:57:48 6601137 977 0.00378239 none 233274  25.09570000 90 confirmations left  

No big deal on 17702 as interuptions at the beginning of a block don't effect payouts much.

I think Slush mentioned earlier that it takes some time for all the calculations to finish.. I see the same as you so, but 17702 has been found as well, so I'll give it some time (and i'll try not to press F5 every 2 seconds, because that doesn't help ;-))

I am finally out of the noobjail ... hip hip

I was lurking on the forum for a while, without any registration, but i have registered to congratulate Slish for the great work done in (not the first one) situation like this. Well done Slush and respect!
Yes, it's his business, but the reaction in critical situations makes the difference between A and B ... A hides (and denies) the brakein until it's too late, while B is clear and do it's best to minimize impact - i'll trust B more than A, because he gives me more info and chance to protect myself too.

As a side note, the hosting except being (hopefully) more secure is much better with regards to delay/routing accessibility - i am using load balancing between several pools and was mining with 80-120MH/s before, but it's stable at 145MH/s now

Not trying to start a "shitstorm" here, but what did happen with block 17701 ?  I have 160+ hashes and zero BTC, and blocks 17702 and 17703 above it have already filled in and have amounts....

edit:

Now it shows  none and none.  Was the block stale or invalid?

We don't know yet. We have to wait for Slush, and he's probably in a sleep-deprivation coma.
I'm sure he'll let us know when he addresses the issue.

Never mind.   I think he must be working on it, it's changed around multiple times, now seems ok.

Edit.

Thanks, Slush.  You're almost faster than the whole internet  Wink

But how about you?  In your job, have you ever put out way more than your customers (or your boss) expected?  Did you get a little something extra in your pay, or a good tip, for the effort, or did you just get a "Thanks, great effort -- now get back to work" for your reward?  Which situation would motivate you more?

I'm well known for always putting in more than is expected.
And no, I have never been initially rewarded for it. Its a long term thing. If things are looking down I don't have to worry about my Job security. Almost everyone on site knows me from the directors to the farm staff (quite a diverse company) and wouldn't have a bad word to say! Not to mention I am continually getting offers from other companies.

I show loyalty to the company, they show loyalty to me.

But this isn't a case of a company on the verge of bankruptcy and the workers volunteering to prop it up.
Somethings gone seriously wrong. You should pay slush's dedication back with your own! Coming back to your customer comparison, if a supplier has always gone out of their way to help you, when they have a problem you don't throw money at them.
Instead you take the inconvenience on the chin, work round their issues and stick with them.

My issue isn't with those that want to tip, feel free. I just took a little aback at the indirect suggestion it is owed!
Especially because the sorts of people that view loyalty as financial are generally really quite selfish. The sorts that had the pool been down for a few days would have jumped ship to another pool. Not saying that about anyone here directly, just as a rule of thumb you tend to find those traits.

Actually I slept only for short time, but I just got back at home from meeting about the Trezor and I was monitoring the pool from my smart phone all the time :-).

Now I started with Namecoin payouts, which should work in few hours.
