Zero namecoin rewards in the last 4 rounds?
That seems extremely odd.

Stratum pool don't have support for Namecoin (yet), so around 30% of hashpower isn't mining for Namecoin. Still you should have higher namecoin income than on other pools, because quite a lot people didn't filled NMC address...

I'm considering to drop of NMC support, because this project is basically dead and current merged mining sources are incompatible with latest bitcoin development (no support for merged mining over getblocktemplate etc). There's no project development since merged mining has been introduced in last October...

namecoins are pretty useless anyway so I wouldn't make a big deal out of it Smiley

Not helpful, but hey, at least you got your opinion out there right?

I'm considering to drop of NMC support, because this project is basically dead and current merged mining sources are incompatible with latest bitcoin development (no support for merged mining over getblocktemplate etc). There's no project development since merged mining has been introduced in last October...

What's the problem with using getblocktemplate for merged mining? I think that should work.

I agree namecoin seems dead, though. I wish they would at least fix the bugs they have that were fixed in bitcoin long ago.

As far as I'm aware there is no problem with doing so, you just have to implement the merged mining process into your pool software rather than some of the older (less efficient) methods that were done when merged mining was first being pushed.

Like slush, I'm considering dropping NMC support as well.  The project really does seem dead.  It was a great concept, but it feels like it should have been a fresh project rather than a fork off bitcoin.  There is simply far too little innovation compared to how much garbage has been dragged along for the ride.

Yes, it is clearly possible, although there's no docs for merged mining process and existing software and patch to older bitcoind is mostly hack to "get it work" instead of "get it work properly". I'll discuss this in #namecoin anyway. If there'll be somebody willing to help me with re-implementation of MM and removing dependency to bitcoind patches, I'll try to do it...

Thanks.  I feel there is much promise there, but perhaps not much need for it... yet.
And, as they say, it is better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.

Honestly I think there is no need for namecoin.  It won't route around government/ISP censorship like TOR can.  The only thing I see going for it is it's a lot easier to tell somebody a .bit address than a .onion.

I do think there's a space for some generic key->value distributed storage like namecoin, although current namecoin implementation is alpha-quality hack of original bitcoin sources and I expected some serious development when it had been obvious that there's some interest. Unfortunately nothing happen in last year. As I said, I'll try to ask somebody for help with generic NMC MM interface with GBT and without bitcoind patches and I'll decide then...

Silly slush, everybody knows that nobody acknowledges monthly luck, only bad 24-72 hour luck.

Pool had weird issues with Tor. Although Tor process as been running and there were no errors in the log AND website has been reachable over Tor, Tor mining stopped working. I restarted Tor and it works again, but Tor miners probably experienced downtime for many hours.

Miners not using Tor have not been affected by this issue.
