Update on the upgrade process.  The new server is up and bbqcoind has been rebuilt from scratch.  It is downloading the blockchain now.

Once it has finished I will bring the server completely back online.

Thanks for your understanding!!

I suggest you post the sha256 hash of the date and time you plan to release the reward way ahead of time.

Now that's interesting ......  Grin

Ok, the new server is up and running, earlier than expected too.   Hopefully everything will be much smoother than before.  Please report any issues you experience using the ticket system ASAP!!!

Thanks Guys !

The pool's reserve balance is currently about 900 coins.  Won't be long now till we hit 1000 and the contest pays out.

How about we see what this new server can do ?

Also,

I'm looking for a better favicon.ico.  If anyone has any experience in creating them I would like to see your ideas.  I'm thinking of something like a silver coin with SW on it or maybe a wolf head, idk.  I'll leave the ideas up to you creative types.

I'd like a small version for the favicon.ico and a larger to use as a site logo on the main page.  I'm going to use the same logo & favicon on all of my pools, so it shouldn't pertain to any one particular coin.

I'm offering a 800 BBQ bounty (from my personal funds) to the person who submits the winning design.

Good, I'll throw 1.4MH/s at it.

Excellent !  Let me know if you have any issues.

The share difficulty is VERY low.

It's set that way to accommodate slower miners.  If it becomes an issue than I will raise it.  At the moment it's a pretty good compromise until I can get vardiff implemented.

Is it an issue for you ?

Yes, I'm getting quite a few stales.

Turn your scan rate down to 5.  That's where I run mine and I get less than 1% stales. (Edit my stale rate is actually at 1.01% now.)

Also, stratum is coming next, that will drastically reduce stales as well.

If anyone is interested, I pasted my configure file for cgminer for my HD7950.  It works VERY well, I get @630 kh/s and very low stales.

So far so good on the new server.  I haven't received any support tickets and I've been watching it closely.

I do need to restart it to implement some performance tweaks.  I will do that tonight at approx 8PM Central time.

Downtime should be about 10 minutes.

Nope, 5% stales.

Hmm, that's odd.  Well, after the server restart tonight the next thing on the agenda is stratum support. 

I have everything I need to implement it all lined up, I just need to work through getting it working and testing it.  Perhaps you can help me test it once I get it installed ?

When the profitability of BBQ Coin finally rises to 122% people drop off the pool and now we are down to 6.79MH/s ?  What's up with that ?

Also, hint....  The contest is nearing completion.

As previously announced the server will be restarted at 8pm Central (about an hour and a half) in order to apply some performance tweaks to the new server.

Downtime will be around 10 minutes so stick around!

Stratum support is now operational!

It's still in testing as far as reliability goes, but I have confirmed that shares are counted and found blocks are credited normally.

If you'd like to check it out use all the normal settings except use port 3333 instead of 8342 and you'll get stratum.

Please report any issues you find with it !!!!

Stratum support is now online.  Change your port to 3333 and give it a try.  Please let me know how it affects your stales.

It's a newer way for your miner to connect to the pool.  It's more efficient than the older getwork method and generally results in much fewer stales.

You can read more about it here : http://mining.bitcoin.cz/stratum-mining
