From the difficulty calc at dot-bit.org .  I know its more accurate than the old one but are we going to see 1.787mil in 6 more blocks?

getblockcount = 134804. 2016 - (134804 mod 2016) = 268. so still some time remaining. not 6 blocks.

thanks for the quick reply, I see what the calc is doing now. it has a small range for what it estimates the diffulty would currently be if it were to adjust in real time.  I'm a lil lost on your math though, how did you come to the 268?

a - (b % c)

a = amount of blocks in a difficulty period

b = current block

c = amount of blocks in a difficulty period

% = modulus (remainder of a division)

You start by calculating b % c, which is 1 748. This is the amount of blocks currently found in the current difficulty period.

Then you calculate a - 1 748, which equals 268.

Thank you so very much for clearing that up for me!
