Crude but effective way to empty a wallet and avoid issues with transaction size. Save this in a batch file with the appropriate changes.
Every 60 seconds send 666 qrk to the address of your choice.

When mine is finished running I will try -salvagewallet to get back the first 5k I tried to send.

Code:
@echo off

:top

"C:\YOURPATH\quarkcoind.exe" -rpcpassword=xxxx sendtoaddress YOURADDRESS 666

timeout /t 60

goto top

Anyone else getting no accepted shares at all, or fluctuating hash rates?

I don't get it really...tried both solo and pools (all of them) and I can't get this to mine decently since last night.
I used to get a constant 600kh/s but not anymore.

I can't get mine working properly...   it's getting some error about 'quark-hash' not being found or some such & not loading headers...   just going to take it down instead of leaving that shell up  Grin
I had the same problem until I looked around in Neisklar's Github. Git clone this https://github.com/Neisklar/quarkcoin-hash-python , then python setup.py install, then the pool should work.
Thanks to everyone testing, seems to run good so far, weirdly my yacpool had some hiccups this morning, investigating.
OK, finally fixed that.

Don't really want to restart p2pool, though..   Sad    It's essentially just cosmetic

err, quoted the wrong msg.  I meant the wrong hash rates being reported locally... but the correct # on shares =p

OK, it's showing the rates (local & pool MH/s) properly now.  Just had to restart quarkcoind, not p2pool.

0% fee, 0% donation (does that address even go to someone?)....  have had 4 (possibly 5) orphans out of the 50 blocks solved, but I don't think that's too out of the ordinary...  to me it looks like it might be less than avg, after seeing all the self orphans on the two "really big" p2pools....

nogleg.com:8372     ... I've been using 3 threads on my server to mine with, too.... guess I'll stop, hah

(ed: ok, 5 orphans now out of 52..   117926 was latest)

the share difficulty goes up as the pool's (p2pool) hashing power increases

so a pool at 100mhash will be 10x harder to get a share on than one at 10mhash and 100x harder than one at 1mhash.

that is unless someone changed the settings.. it's designed to adjust difficulty to achieve a set # of shares per minute

Oh, I was worried....I got one share after 5 min or so, for 671kh/s then nothing for a long while so I switched back to solo.
Thanks for the explanation!

0% fee, 0% donation (does that address even go to someone?)....  

Yep, it's one of mine.

Please be sure to read the comments in the source p2pool/data.py (i think around line 50)
...
wait, i had that somewhere written already, lets post that, some important thing is marked bold
Quote
That address is somewhat special, in one of the posts in the Quarkcoin thead here i mentioned that stuff already.
I noted my (hopeful correct) findings of it in the source: p2pool/data.py:

starting around line 54
Code:
### Neisklar:
### It took a while to figure it out:
### This is a UNCOMPRESSED public key surrounded by 4104 ... ac
### Important is the (clever or not?) way it is used:
### ALL shares in the p2pools chains depend on that value, means if you would like to join a p2pool network with your own node with this value changed
### would invalidate ALL shares. Means your own node would see all shares from the other nodes as invalid, and the p2pool network with the other value would see
### all your shares as invalid. Of course if you run a standalone node as pool, this isn't a problem, as long as you DO NOT change this value after your local node
### has produced some shares without deleting the share database /data/<network>
### Also important: It must be so long, i tried it with newer Script wich includes only the pubkey hash (76a914...(pubkey_hash)...88ac), this will break the pool.

DONATION_SCRIPT = '4104ebc79bbfd3901db557108d9e8815bf13ff2c170a63ff1546a6e6d99ef90004f78b94753ba550e9be681cde100ed84a439103e03290f1d34cf4d7e1c3535d2a93ac'.decode('hex')

So thats an address of me ( Wink), if someone wants to do it (i don't know why) he could run the node with --donate-to-author or somewhat to give that address some share. That param was in the original code even defaulted to 1 percent, i did zero it hopefully in the source.

Another important thing is when you look at the stats page under rewards of my pool you see the following:
Qe91rA2W8fQ3b19cknuVuxVhxgqdbkvL4m   0.0002
EVEN as donations to author are set to 0.
This is all what is left after payoutprocessing which has some rounding in it. So with current reward of 1024 thats not so much, but when the reward gows down, that will be much more.


So if you want to change that, no problem, you need an uncompressed public key (should be 65 bytes long) and put them between the 4104 and the ac. (It may also that that uncompressed pubkey is already prefixed with 04, then don't double the 04).

If we later establish a p2pool network, then this value MUST be the same on all nodes, if not it will not work (clever or not of the original p2pool author?).
If the time arrives, lets discuss that together with Max the developer of Quark and then maybe use as Network-Donantion address an address of Max, or some other address which is used for special stuff.

Oh, I don't mind, I probably would have put it at 0.2% or so, same as I have the bitcoin pool at..

On another note, the person mining as 'quarkcoinrpc' on my p2pool,  that all goes to me... you have to use your address as username.

PM me and I can send you what you got... if you can prove who you are.    Cry     I did a capture of the IP addresses & the earliest time you got a share, so it narrows the IP range down quite a bit, but you'd have to give me your IP I think for proof (ed: unless there's a better way I can't think of atm...  but I can narrow it down to about a half dozen IPs)

What I don't understand about this coin is how it is expected to survive after everyone drops out a few weeks down the line? Unless the value skyrockets and surely that's unlikely, then why would anyone at all be mining in 6 months time? I guess I'm missing something here.  Undecided

The thing you are missing, as of right now, is that there is no GPU miner for Quarkcoin. As a result, everyone mines on a CPU, which maximises the profitability of a mining rig, as it is mining both, say, Litecoin, and Quarkcoin.

The alternative to this is Primecoin. Primecoin is starting to get very difficult to mine.

At first after 6 months is expected something like 0.5% inflation which is block reward of 1 QRK forever and ever
and at second I believe in this coin - it has stable community, many new features which bitcoin doesnot have, it has webdiscussion, its own webpage, active developers, coins are traded already at 2 exchanges.
very interesting will be how price will react when blockreward halves.
I think this coin can easily increase in value and tenfold its price in just one week and keep the price level still rising - can you say it about bitcoin or litecoin??
And this coin is quite solid, it can be traded only for btc, not for cheap ltc.
 It may happen the same situation like on IFC - almost all coins are mined and price is still rising.

Right now it might be worth speculating on Quarkcoin by mining it, but how far down the line will it remain so. What's one or two more quarkcoins to your collection of thousands, better off speculating on another CPU coin by that point. The value of a coin won't increase until it becomes adopted. The problem with most of the coins being mined in the first 6 months is that you end up with a handful of people holding most of the coins. Less people holding coins less people to drive adoption and adoption is what ultimately dictates the value. I just can't believe anyone is going to be mining this coin in 6 months time.

I'm interested in following the coin and I don't want to knock anybodies hard work, clearly a lot of effort has gone into this. I just don't see the unique properties of this coin being anywhere game changing enough to get enough people on board in only a few months.

Hey guys, quick announcement!

I just posted my newest guide on VPS pool mining SecureCoins.

However, because SecureCoin and QuarkCoin use the same hash algorithm, you can just configure the script to mine at a QuarkCoin pool and you'll be good to go!

I hope some services get setup using Quark coin soon.  I really like how fast and smooth the transactions are with this coin compared to some others and want it to be succesful.
