whats a used 5970 worth, unmined one?
I recentley paid 250€ for one, with fairly little usage reported and condition that suggested nothing othervise, this is in Finland where 23% of the price is made up of taxes, so an untaxed usd price for comparison at todays exchage rates would be about 262$. I considered the price I got good and bought two units.

I have one 6990 also, I'd advice to stay away from those, they are loud hot and hungry (energywise). I most definetley will not buy another one.

I can confirm that. Been comparing 5970 to 6990 (of a friend) last year. 5970 to be preferred (less power consumption, slightly better cooling solution)

Does anyone know if there is a way to change the time zone on the bitminter website from the default?

Why does the yellow "expected average" line keep going down on the rewards page. I've kept thinking it has gone down, but I distinctly remember the peak at the third graph line still being under the expected average line quite a few months ago.

Question:  I set my GPU on my desktop to use bitminter instead of guiminer (figured I may as well try it, since I'm using it for my singles), but it seems to lag my desktop a bit more than I'd like.  In guiminer, I used f -120, and I could game on my computer while it was mining without any trouble.  I'm afraid to even try a game with the BitMinter miner running, just because of how much even the text I am typing is lagging.

I tried adjusting the work intervals, but it didn't make any appreciable change.

Is there anything else I can do to give more power to the system by default?  Or should I just stick with guiminer for my GPU?

Sorry, you can't. Maybe I'll do something about that when I have time. For now all the dates are UTC.

Expected average reward for one proof of work is determined by difficulty. Rewards drop as difficulty go up. Hopefully the next time difficulty will go down and rewards will go up. Smiley

Those charts only show the last 500 shifts. I should make it possible to move around in time on those charts when I have time.

I tried adjusting the work intervals, but it didn't make any appreciable change.

I have work intervals set to 5 ms, and games mostly run ok without the need to stop mining. Have you tried values as low as that?

I adjusted the work interval UP.  Will have to try adjusting it downward.  So lower = slower then?

Between every work interval other programs get a chance to use the graphics card. So if the work interval is only 5 ms long, other programs don't have to wait too long to update the screen. This makes mining a little slower, but in my experience it's not that bad.

Ah, I misunderstood what that was for then!  I thought the interval was the amount of break between each piece of work.  Will give it a try with lower intervals then.

BTW, why don't the little "I" icons next to the worker settings do anything?  I expected some popup help tips or something, but nothing.  Maybe it's a bug, and they should be doing something?  This was in the latest beta you posted.

EDIT:  Also, I'm getting 380 MH/s on my 5870 through Bitminter (on the 5 ms interval), instead of 345 MH/s on guiminer, so that's a plus!  Hopefully it'll work well enough for gaming, but can't try it right now.

You just mouse over them and get a tooltip. Hmm, perhaps I can also make it work to click them.

Ah, ok.  Obviously I was too impatient for the tooltips.  Wink

Not overclocked at all on the 5870..!

So since it is showing expected average from the past months wouldnt the line not be straight, and be adjusted for when the difficulty changed? Right now the line seems to show "if the difficulty was always what it was today, then here is the expected average." But since in the past the difficulty was less the slope should be greater at those times. Or am i missing something?

The second chart is just the numbers from the first one added up. The yellow line in the second graph is actually slightly curved, but you can't see it with the naked eye. Wink

If you hit "view source" in the browser you can see the javascript function accumulate() that is used to add up numbers from the first chart to create data for the second.

This is by far the best pool I have used.  Just finished moving the last of my accounts from deepbit.  Keep up the great work.

Thank you, good sir. That's good motivation to keep working on BitMinter, as is the hash rate going up so much lately. Smiley

Winning! Wink

There are plans to add something along those lines. I can't promise when, though.

Hashrate went up again for the fourth week in a row making Bitminter a middle tier pool. Another four weeks? Anyone want to bet on the probability of bitminter being a top tier pool by then?
