If you haven't been ripped off by a pool server, post here.

(Hey, this thread is just as legitimate as the other one, right?)

I have donated 10BTC to slush for what I consider to be excellent and selfless service.

+1 on slush's Pool.
I have been paid out twice now, first one was probably done manually, second time was only just the other day right after it crossed the threshold.
Network connection is quite stable and now testing the 230Mhashes/s GPU in the pool  Grin

5 BTC on its way as a donation.

Keep up the good work slush !

Use your freedom, use bitcoins !

Bitcoin Relational Database (in MySQL) aka The BiRD now available.

Yeah, Slush did a good job on the pooled mining server.
Thank you slush!   Smiley

I've received several payments, and I'm starting to spread the word to my tech savvy friends.

The only problem I have now is the clients crash at random....so I wrote a batch/bash script to start the process in a loop, so that when the app dies, it just restarts back up.
I'm making about 6-8 bitcoins/day now.  Grin

Spread the word and lets get this mining operation really going!

What miner? What crashes? Do you have some traceback/error message?

Miner: poclbm
Unhandled exception is the error.
I do not have a trackback/error message as of late because of the script I wrote to catch it.

I just restarted the process *without* using my script....so I'll post here the next time it crashes.

I get like 5 bitcoins per 8 hours on my 5870 at ~300MHashes/sec.

Also, slush, I am more than happy with your pool. Smiley

New user. 5850. <3 slushpool. 3.99 BTC confirmed so far, and I found my first block today. Smiley

edit... Btw Slush, I like the new additions. It's cool being able to see how much reward I received from prior blocks. When the donation feature goes live, will it track that as well? It would be cool to keep a running total of how much has been donated. Keep up the good work!

Happy with the slush pool.

Not happy with how much my GPU apparently blows compared to everyone else  Grin

If you don't already have some serious hardware and don't plan to buy it to mine with, a pool is the only way you are ever likely to get paid.

I don't think that's exactly true. The main benefit of the pool is that it smooths out the returns by handing out small but frequent and predictable sums, but over a long enough period of time, the overall returns should be very similar to what you'd get as a lonesome miner.

If you're a gambler, stay outside of a pool initially and see if you get lucky and score a 50 BTC block early on.
Afterward, you're probably better off pooling either way.

Back on topic: slush's pool works. http://mining.bitcoin.cz/ . That is all.

And it's crushing again today. The longest round all day was just barely over two hours (and far, far in the lead at that), and the shortest was 31 seconds. (Though I got zero reward on that one... didn't submit any shares in time, I guess.) As of this posting there are 40 blocks awaiting confirmation.
