Apparantly pushpool requires a minimum difficulty of 256 to work 100% properly, so I attempted to increase the difficulty (from ~45) to 256 or higher so that I could fully test pushpool on testnet before making any errors on the real blockchain.

I should have known this would not be possible since the bitcoin protocol has some sort of difficulty increase limiting factor built into it by default, does it not?

I am curious... did testnet just hit (or almost hit) that difficulty increase limit? It's surprisingly close to a 4x increase right now (sitting at ~175 difficulty).

If anybody wants to join me in upping the testnet difficulty over the next few days, feel free!

You might maybe be able to test it on namecoin if it's urgent...

Namecoin had a 4x increase already by the way with even more hashing power online than that, so yes, this part really works. <-- leveraged trading of BTCUSD, LTCUSD and LTCBTC (long and short) - 10% discount on fees for the first 30 days with this refcode: x5K9YtL3Zb
