Love the program, thanks.

Nice to hear, thank you Smiley

Well I finished syncing my wallet and now I'm wondering where exactly do I go on the Bitminter site to input my address?

After logging into the website go to "my account" -> "account details". Halfway down the page is the auto cash out. There are instructions there on how it works.


Oh I see now, thanks.

Love this pool, the bitminter client is a big help for newbies like me. Currently mining at 900Mh/s with a Jalapeno on order.
Love the merged mining, and the fact that on the stats page you can enable an audible alert when a block is found, and that the sound is the sound of a slot machine haha

That's done to reduce the delay in payments. A 1.5% donate is required for the prepay perk, which pays for blocks instantly (and also pays for orphan blocks). New users have had trouble understanding the combined delay from block confirmations and PPLNS.

hi DR! im new here, love your bitminter client!! I just bought a Block Erupter USB and want to know what driver do i need for bitminter 1.3.2?? and Win7
thanks

Thank you kind sirs!

To run with Block Erupter, get Silabs drivers: http://www.silabs.com/products/mcu/Pages/USBtoUARTBridgeVCPDrivers.aspx

Note that because the Block Erupter has 1 chip versus the Icarus with 2, BitMinter client gets confused and shows twice the actual hashrate.

If you use Mac OS X: this gives serial ports with a different filename than the usual /dev/usbserial* from FTDI. With the current BitMinter client that won't work automatically, so you have to open a Terminal window and type
Code:
ls /dev/cu.*
to find the name. Probably /dev/cu.SLAB_USBtoUART. If you have multiple units then they will also have a number at the end. Then click "devices" -> "probe specific port" in the menu, and type in the full path, /dev/cu.SLAB_USBtoUART - the device should be detected.

I'm hoping to have a new release to fix these two issues soon.

Hi Doc,
I Love BitMinter. I finally figured out how to make BitMinter launch on bootup.
1. Is launching minimized the same as "Performance Mode?"
2. I wish I could change my account name and the name of a worker. Now I add a new worker to get a new name. How long should I leave the old worker in purgatory before deleting it so I don't loose any shares???
3. I have BFL miners plugged into GPU miners. I sure wish I could put BFL miners on BitCoin mining and assign GPUs to LiteCoin mining.
4. The Tune 'n Tweak settings I've settled on are:
  • Work group size : 256
  • Work intervals (ms) 77
  • Manual vectors = unchecked
  • Use BFI_INT if available = checked
  • Buffer type: Use default
Penny for thoughts on better settings.
Skol, Aurum

Hi Doc,

1. Is launching minimized the same as "Performance Mode?"

Nice to hear Smiley

Minimize is not the same as performance mode. It minimizes to task bar or system tray, depending on whether or not you turned on the "minimize the systray" option. As GPU mining goes it is as fast as performance mode. The thing with performance is that not drawing a lot of animated gauges etc. speeds up mining a little bit. You can do that either with performance mode or by minimizing the window.

2. I wish I could change my account name and the name of a worker. Now I add a new worker to get a new name. How long should I leave the old worker in purgatory before deleting it so I don't loose any shares???

I don't think it's a good idea if users change their user name a lot, but if it's a one time thing send me a message through the "contact" page of the website and I can fix it for you. You'll need to update the miners when the name has changed though as they won't be able to connect after the switch has been made.

Workers are never really deleted. They are just marked as removed. This is exactly for keeping tabs on work done by all the "deleted" workers.

3. I have BFL miners plugged into GPU miners. I sure wish I could put BFL miners on BitCoin mining and assign GPUs to LiteCoin mining.

A lot of users ask for LTC mining. I'm very busy with some other features right now. When I have more time I will look at LTC and see if it makes sense to add it.

Penny for thoughts on better settings.

It really depends on the GPU model, and maybe even the driver version. So you just have to try it and see.

Thanks for the quick response doc. Good to know launching minimized is the fast mode. Now if my miners need to reboot they'll automatically start running BitMinter.

Can't wait to see what those new features you're working on.
Cheers, Aurum

Bhey doc haribo.

I agree that litecoin might soon be quite cool to have when all those asic will make our gpu useless in front of them.

Thanks for your investment in the pool and your great communication !

I absolutely love the program, it nets me 26 Mh/s while i can only get a few dozen kh/s out of cgminer.

I also agree that litecoin support would be amazin
