I highly discourage any of you from using Slush's pool, he cheats his users a lot, my mining client showed 40+ valid and accepted shares that just weren't counted on his site, (all were accepted and in a put in every other order so i got about 1/2 of my expected yeild) furthermore, the NMC mining doesnt work, and according to a little poking around, has never worked (which yeilds me to think hes just using our hash's and keeping the NMC himself about $1,231.78 per day at there hashpower) i commonly disconnect, and half the time my PC isn't being sent shares. Anyone else experience these problems? i moved to BTC guild and there wayyyyyy better. so much more stable.

1) Getting less than your expected yield is not uncommon on any non-PPS pool, especially when your analysis includes only 40 shares.  Slush's pool tends to have extremely high variance for low speed users due to the scoring method.  In the long run, it's expected to average out, but variance takes weeks/months to "average out".  Using a very small number of shares/time for comparison will have a HUGE variance.

2) Slush's NMC merged mining was only ever implemented on Getwork, and worked fine at that time.  However, Slush no longer runs any getwork servers, only Stratum, and he has not implemented merged mining via Stratum.  Slush does not generate any NMC blocks anymore, thus does not pay out NMC.

3) Happy you like BTC Guild Tongue

Ive used both.  Slush would not be a complaint had you got lucky, sounds like you did not.   Its possible to submit hundreds of shares and get zero and that is an open secret :p

You need to be there when the block is solved even if that takes half a day and maybe you get a payout but really it helps to be well over 1gh processing.  Guild on the other hand will pay something for any share at any time even if you log off, much easier to see but it can pay less then slush so its personal preference
