I'll be thinking about setting up another pool which would be more long term viable than MMC turned out to be and which would be able to resist multi   Tbps DDoS attacks, in a phoenix like fashion. But so far it is all on drawing boards, so nothing much to talk about.

Vladimir, with your mining power perhaps you can contribute an idea like p2pool to stabilize. No more DDoS, distributed mining (and distribute reward) in the spirit of the whole Bitcoin project.

Please, take a glance and consider a testing period on it.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=18313.0

So sorry to see Mainframe go. I'd been load-balancing between p2pool and mainframe for the last while and only learned of the shutdown when I got back from a two week vacation yesterday.

Vladimir, would like to second Shevek's invitation to have you put some of your considerable talents and resources into helping test and level out the variance on http://p2pool.org.

haha Smiley good to hear! Smiley   I fired up the old MMC servers today to see if could re-purpose them and then i got stuck digging through the old code remembering the "old days".   AFter more than 6 months downtime,  i still have miners trying to connect to the servers when i brought them up again.  Someone is really not paying attention to their boxes (legitimate or not).

was a shame to see it go ....
I'm still plugging away
...

some of my miners may still have the mmc in in the rotation for alternative pools [I think I changed them all though - but you never can be sure ]


In the Beginning there was CPU , then GPU , then FPGA then ASIC, what next I hear to ask ....

wow, good to see so many recognised names. I stopped mining due to a combination of noise and cost - my wife finally "persuaded" me to tidy up the spare room so that my son could move in, and of course it was uneconomical to mine for a while...

With the benefit of hindsight I do not think there were too many days during last 4 years where investing into mining hardware and power was more cost effective than simply buying BTC. Yes, at the time it often was much less risky to mine than to buy BTC. Indeed, different risk profile of buying versus mining was always obvious with GPU's/CPUs.

Note that most people who paid for ASIC's that are to be delivered soon (hopefully) paid for it when BTC was at 5$. The cost of lost opportunity for them is already nearly 300% of ROI. This means that they need to quadruple their investment just to catch up with those who decided to pass on ASIC mining and simply keep/buy some BTC instead. Good luck with this.


All very good points, Vladimir.  I do find it interesting to keep an eye on whats happening though especially with the first 300 units now out there.  Time will tell, as always.
