As MMC closed over sudden its doors yesterday I switched to this pool and after my first day of mining I must say I'm loving it here. Great website and stats and even better: 24h of mining without a single stale share. Cheesy Keep up the Good work!

Ok, conclusion after 6 days: the stale rate is still awesome (0.03%) but the pool seems to kind of unlucky. The last three blocks took longer then they should have. But hey, luck is a lady, I guess I'll stay.  Wink

Three blocks isn't much to go on statistically.
One thing I need to do is make it easier to work out our luck over any defineable timeframe but I'm not sure how to implement it yet.
If someone gives me a decent idea on how to represent it then I'll code it up Smiley

Those graphs which show a moving line of luck on recent blocks aren't bad, but I kind of want a number rather than a graph, IYSWIM

Some ideas (if you really can't be dealing with charts):

1. Number of blocks found in last time period (week, month whatever) compared to expected
2. CDF (like Slush's pool)
3. Average shares per block/difficulty

I  think the best looking thing would be a density plot of all round lengths compared to other pools, like this:

Like BTCG   % above or below diffculty - was calculated per  difficulty ( was like that before they went pps)
They Also had 24h luck but I guess thats only good for a very big pool.

How about average number of times a share was paid over the x number of blocks? For a pplns pool i think that's your best indictor of luck.

for example your luck from block 8 to block 17 was 1.09 or 109%

edit: unless you change N again in which case you'd be better of showing (average payouts per share)/N to keep average luck at 100%.

Website and API is down, maybe more but I can't check from my mobile.

Update 13:38h: Pool seems up and running again but now my unconfirmed balance is wrong; pending payouts for blocks #45 and #46 are missing. Please check.

Yep, sorry, fairly major issues overnight and this morning, sorry about this. Our first serious downtime since we started though.

I'm aware of blocks #45 and #46 showing incorrect payouts, I'll fix this shortly.

Closing down the pool (yes, again).

Two main reasons:
a) I believe bitcoin is dying a slow protracted death, with falling hashrates and falling values it's only a matter of time before it's gone entirely.
b) we had server issues which led to the outage earlier on today, but believed them to be fixed - sadly not and we're now at a state where the pool server won't boot properly, and given my position on a) I'm not willing to invest any more time in fixing this and carrying on running it just to have it all for nothing in what I suspect may be a matter of weeks.

There was one block which hadn't confirmed yet, once it has I'll get it paid out. All remaining balances will be paid out.

It ain't coming back this time, thanks for the hashes over the past few months.

I do understand your position, but why all the ..."lets make these cool graphs", "maybe time for some redundancy" etc..
It didn't seem that this is the direction you were going...
Oh well, I have no luck...  every small pool I've joined has closed down... maybe it's me...
Maybe i should join deepbit and see If I can do them the same Wink

Good Luck to you all at RFC

I'm sorry to hear this pool is gone.  It was pretty good on paper and, were it not for the grace period for stales, might well have been my main pool.

Smaller pools come and go but many of them are easy to join and often provide better average income than the big pools.  If you like PPLNS then mineco.in is decent.  If your more interested in the merged mining then be advised that there are still teething issues so you should look carefully at the pools recent performance before joining.  Both simplecoin.us and yourbtc.net have merged mining with unhoppable reward systems at 40 GH/s or so (simplecoin.us offers PPLNS and yourbtc.net uses DGM).

Always consider recent uptime and luck before joining a new pool.
