It can't.  If it did and you were looking at the same block (BTC and NMC have their own CDF) then it must be a "glitch".  Maybe Dr H knows more.
hmm - Am sure I was looking at the BTC block - maybe someone else can remember ?  Undecided

Hm, perhaps it could be the extrapolation. The round stats update on the page every 2 minutes. The changes in between that are extrapolated based on current hash rate.

If someone runs GPUmax and pushes the hash rate up, then later the hash rate drops suddenly when the GPUmax run is over. The extrapolation will keep showing everything moving at the same rate until the next real data comes, which could be 2 minutes later. At that point all the numbers are corrected.

For the same reason you can also sometimes see that you go from X to X+1 rejected proofs of work, then suddenly back to X.

I'm thinking of turning off extrapolation for rejects. They don't come at a steady pace anyway, just at the block changes. I'm also thinking of reducing the updates to every minute.

Hm, not sure if 2 minutes of wrong extrapolation can explain a change as big as the one you mentioned, but it's the only thing I can think of.

Could be ? when the CDF was 99.7 % the hash rate was very high (about 300 GH (with about 175 from one user)) ,the
next day when it was reading about 96 % the hash rate was low (just over 100 GH, I think)
Maybe you could log / record the live data - add to the 'to do list'  Tongue

Not sure what was the cause there. But holding on to some of that data and drawing some graphs might be useful, yeah.

Very impressed with the software, and quite easy to use. I had tried mining with one of the other clients once, except that it stopped working after the first day and I couldn't get it to work again :/

Thanks! Smiley

Wow, can get up to 600 on my 5970 with no overclock. Within my first 24 hours I've mined a whole bitcoin, averaging 540-600MH/s... Very impressed with this pool and software.

If I've helped you, consider a small donation. Everything helps.

For higher MH/s drop your memclock low.  300Mhz is easy.  I run 160Mhz but some miners say memclock that low is unstable.  The reduced heat allows you to overclock the core and still keep it cool and stable (plus less power usage).

700 MH/s is trivial.   You can get 750MH/s to 780 MH/s depending on your luck, card, cooling, etc.

Glad you like the software and find it easy to use. Smiley

One of the main reasons for writing it was to make a user-friendly alternative.

Did anyone compare the BitMinter miner against DiabloMiner on a 7970? (or cgminer with DiabloMiner kernel)

I don't have such a GPU to test it myself.

I also use this for gaming, so I'm just going to leave it as is.

People have discussed a bounty system for longer blocks, I'm wondering if anyone would throw their namecoins into a bounty for this purpose. I understand that people might want to hold on to bitcoins but DrHaribo was talking about how few users actually used namecoins or knew what they were used for.

The problem with namecoins is exactly the fact that noone wants them. I wonder if people would donate towards block bonuses or perhaps some of each block should be reserved for whoever created it.

Actually, if you have a look at the NMC Exchange prices as of the last few days....someone seems to want them. The price took an approximate 30% swing (UP) recently.

You wouldnt have to give people namecoins directly, you could go to an exchange and sell them for bitcoins then give those away. Even better merge mine with some other C or D level coins and automatically trade those for a bonus.

I like Namecoins, but I am still experimenting with the whole .bit DNS stuff. For my newb brain, It's still a bit archaic, but I think I am finally starting to grasp the applications of such things now that I sort of understand theory.

Yes, interesting. Namecoins have more than doubled in value lately. Something going on?

New "prepay" perk is now available (and default for new users). With this on you will get paid when a block is created. No need to wait for 120 confirmations, which on average would take 20 hours. Hopefully this makes the pool even more appealing, especially for beginners trying out mining for the first time.
