Something installed the extremely annoying "Ask Toolbar" on my computer. I'm wondering if you know anything about that?

i think that comes with java.  when you download anything and install, ALWAYS read what your accepting to install, dont blame bitminter....

Are there any news/progress with roll-n-time support for cgminer?
Will this feature be available soon?

Should be done today I hope, but needs some testing too.

I hope it will be up and running sometime this weekend. We'll find out soon. Smiley


Ready 2 test!  Grin
Whenever it is implemented, you will see it in 2 places:

1) The E: on the top will go up - with a MiniRig you should get a VERY high number.
I get 1170% with a single BFL single - i.e. I generate on average 11.7 shares per getwork (i.e. 10.7 extra)

2) Also, if you look at the API "stats" command it will specifically tell you the pool's roll-n-time settings for the last getwork.
There are 4 fields:
Work Had Roll Time: If the last getwork actually had a "X-Roll-Ntime" header
Work Can Roll: if the header said it can roll (the header can also say it can't roll)
Work Had Expire: if the header correctly included an expire
Work Roll Time: the expire value (seconds)

Of course make sure you are using the latest cgminer to see all that.
(API stats pool roll info was added in 2.7.4)

 yeah SgtMoth  you are correct java does that..    BTW very nice icon


 to Maniac479 you can delete the ask tool bar  program.   I have installed it more then once along with other tag ons   also if you install catalyst watch what you agree to.

I do watch what I install. I don't think you can blame me. There's an entire thread called "Trust No One". This very thread's beginnings is all about how this mining software (Bitminter) isn't open source and so a bunch of people didn't install it. I downloaded it anyway, keeping my fingers crossed, and I get a warning before I install it saying that it can screw up my computer. Finally it installs the "Ask" toolbar. I didn't say yes to it installing the "Ask" toolbar- I already have Java installed anyway.

Bitminter is a great, easy to use program that was a relief to use after mucking around with the problematic guiminer disappearing window issue and difficult to use command line programs. Yet it is too intrusive for my taste. I like to be more in control of what's going on. However I finally got guiminer working again and I'm back to deepbit for now. I think guiminer is excellent- just a minor bug with that invisible window issue.

I've used BitMinter on at least 10 different computers since I started mining here about a year ago.  I can safely say that the Ask Toolbar has never mysteriously (or purposely) been installed on any of the computers I've used to mine.

So you want a non-intrusive program that does everything for you? Do you realize how little sense that makes. Also, don't fault bitminter simply because you can't be bothered to read prompts when installing java on your machine

This. Anything else is just not true. But hey, let's try to blame it on BitMinter Cheesy

I downloaded it anyway, keeping my fingers crossed, and I get a warning before I install it saying that it can screw up my computer. Finally it installs the "Ask" toolbar. I didn't say yes to it installing the "Ask" toolbar- I already have Java installed anyway.

The warning is standard for Java Webstart when you are running an app that needs full access to your computer. BitMinter client needs that or it can't access GPUs and serial ports. It's sandbox or no sandbox, and you can't mine in the sandbox.

The Ask toolbar is installed by Java, not BitMinter. When you install Java on Windows you have to be careful and remove the checkmark when you get to the page about the Ask toolbar. Don't click "next" too quickly. You can read about it, for example here: http://www.quora.com/Java-programming-language/Why-does-Java-for-Windows-include-Ask-Toolbar-nowadays

It's almost hard to believe Oracle would do this. But then you remember how greedy they are. Oh, that's right. Cheesy

BitMinter has been around for well over a year. Never missed a payout. Never had bundleware or malware in the client. If you feel uneasy using closed source software then cgminer is an excellent console (text mode) miner, or you can use GUIminer if you want a GUI.

Hi,
I am using cgminer 2.7.5 I have restarted it just to make sure. But still i do not see anything related to X-Roll-Ntime. I guess it is not lunched yet. When X-Roll-Ntime is available for all of us i will ask you to confirm it here. Then will know that something is wrong with our setup and there will be no doubt that pool supports it.
Thank you very much in advance

No, it's not ready yet. I got the new version almost ready this weekend, but hit a snag. Having an issue with delayed response of pipelined HTTP requests. One of the new things is delaying response for extremely low efficiency miners to give priority to miners that are acting properly, in case of DoS attacks or bugs. I would like to still support pipelined requests, so I need to fix this. Hopefully working soon.

I will announce any changes here as they are made or before.

Everything up and running again.

But will probably need to take some downtime soon, as a disk in a raid-1 array looks like it's dying.

  Communication error, HTTP status code 500 2012.09.10 [12:21]  Communication error, HTTP status code 500 2012.09.10 [12:21]  Communication error, HTTP status code 500 2012.09.10 [12:21]  Communication error, HTTP status code 500 2012.09.10 [12:21]  Connection failed: Connection refused 2012.09.10 [12:22]  Connection failed: Connection refused

Sorry, everything slowed down for a moment as the disk started coughing and sputtering error messages in its final death throes.

Now running smoothly on 1 disk. I'm waiting on response from datacenter techs to arrange to have the faulty disk replaced. Expect a hopefully brief downtime again when they are ready to replace it.

All disk are complete crap! Two years ago was a whole different story. That was what a friend (who knows his things very well) told me. After six mounts they are all dead, Which reminds me that i have to by second one and build raid1 also:) Probably web server crash a day ago was caused by that also...Just sharing thoughts...Thank you very much for your immediate and adequate actions!
