Not quite 4 in 2 days
Sorry my mistake. I thought that RayJay counted that correctly... But then again it is only 8 hours more...

EDIT: Also looking at this: Pool luck (1 day, 7 days, 30 days):   91%, 83%, 97%.
7 days is doping but this is not enough to say it is a problem, but 30 days is a good indicator. If it goes down too much. Now it is hard to say anything. It is still normal. But if we see it below 85% is a really big chance that pool is really malfunctioning. 90% would be start thinking that it is not only counting shares but also other things...

I've been checking luck on other pools - most of the ones I look at are running with low luck and is not incomparable to ours. One exception stands out strongly - you'll never guess - BTCGuild - they are flying with luck atm. Bitminter's luck is even worse than ours... It'll change (I hope) - that's what luck does.

BitMinter had less bad luck than Slush the week that just ended. Looks like BTCguild had very bad luck 6 weeks in a row - not what I call flying with luck. But yes, it seems to be finally turning around for them today. The pool that stands out is actually Itzod with some crazy good luck recently.

I can't help but wonder if this is a symptom of the increase in hashing speed. I wonder if once the difficulty compensates for the increased speed if these occurances will decrease as well.

I can't figure out how. The block generation is still same. If the block generation speed would increase then yes but it doesn't since difficulty increases. And the next difficulty change estimation is only 8% so the block generation is just a bit faster no a lot...

EDIT: We had much bigger changes in the past and this didn't happened.

Not quite - for the last few days we've consistently discovered more blocks than Bitminter. Looking earlier today - for 18th they had 10 and we had 14 (if I remember correctly - 12 are still visible on the stats page), then again - for 19th they had 16, we had 18.
And it's not just the last two days - on multiple occasions over the last few weeks when I checked - we always had same or more blocks per day.

Considering that they have 20-20% more hashpower than us - that says their luck is considerably worse than ours. So - no complaints from me about the luck. Smiley

That's pretty much what DrH said, except in more detail.

Im a bit new to all this and have one question, with all this uncertainty in the last few days with invalids and improperly calculated blocks that fix themselves in time is it normal for Slush to not respond or is this out of the ordinary?

Everyone can say what they want about the weird blocks, bad luck, late/missing payments, etc. But the one thing that worries me is the noticeable absence of Slush. Not only personally (seriously I do hope he's ok), but also for the pool's well-being.

I don't know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.

Plus it's coming up on a month since Slush has posted anything. He logs in occasionally to this forum so he must know what's going on. Also his Trezor project recently released a new video and redesigned its website. Remember these issues only came up after the move to Amazon's EC2. The uptime is good but the latency is what's losing shares and mining invalid blocks. Perhaps he's also in legal talks with OVH about their inside job. I'd say that's pretty important. Maybe someone in the Czech republic can give him a call if they're that worried.

Only one thing is sure from that. Someone open a browser on his computer. This doesn't mean that it was Slush... Posting would mean that.

Lucko, just because I think there may be a latency issue with bitcoind - doesn't mean I agree anything you say - and doesn't mean I still don't think you are a bit of an idiot. I'll stay mining here come what may and will not be slagging off the pool every five minutes.

But doesnt the fact that Slush hasnt even poked his head up to say hes aware make you somewhat concerned?
