Lately they are finding security holes in Java every day. It is recommended to disable the Java plug-in in your browser.

If you are using BitMinter client this should not be a problem. You can start it from the command line instead:
Code:
javaws http://bitminter.com/client/bitminter.jnlp


could it be compromised and we get virus?

Is this for only people using the bitminter mining client or anyone using site to check live stats etc.?

I believe the reject percent is dropping now. The restart must have rejected all work for a little while.

It will probably converge on an average reject percent or be reset with the next block soon. Let's hope the latter Smiley

If you have Java plugin activated in your browser then a hacker could leave something on a webpage to take control of your computer if you view that webpage. It can happen to anyone using a browser with Java plugin turned on.

It's a bit annoying because Java is how BitMinter client is so easy to start, just clicking on a webpage. If you turn off Java in the browser to protect yourself from hackers then you can't start the miner that way. But as long as Java is still installed it should be possible to start it from commandline with "javaws http://bitminter.com/client/bitminter.jnlp". So you can protect yourself and still use the client.

Why are rejects so high right now?

I just restarted the mining server, that causes some rejects. Sorry about that, I try to keep it to a minimum.

Update now is faster authentication, which should speed up response a bit especially just after a restart when all users have to get re-authenticated. Also turned off rollntime for cgminer and bfgminer below version 2.7. Please upgrade to the latest version if you use one of those two miners.

Once in a while when those old miners start DDoSing the server some miners experience response times up to 30 seconds. It is worst in the "slow response queue", so those miners are mostly DoSing each other. But hopefully this update will help reduce the problem.

Suggestion: Add a clock to the website. Local server time.

The server is running very smoothly now. We had 1.8 TH/s earlier today and the server load was pretty low. Sorry for the daily restarts and sometimes high response times the last couple days. Hopefully it will be smooth sailing now. It is certainly looking pretty solid.

Suggestion: Add a clock to the website. Local server time.

Not a bad idea. Is it annoying to have one ticking away at the top of the page?

I suppose better might be to display the timestamps in a timezone chosen by the user, but that would take a bit more work.

Just a digital one with minutes, no seconds. Same colour as your twitter/facebook/etc text.  Smiley

No timezone, people are on a computer, they know what time it is.

+1 to user customizable timezone so timestamps on shifts and blocks show up as each user's local time.  Just a nice feature for someday, not critical.

I got a suggestion from PsychoticBoy to change the N in PPLNS from 2x difficulty to 4x difficulty. That would be to double the size of the shifts. Please speak up if you have an opinion on it.

Currently 10 shifts take about 5 hours. Doubling shift size would mean 10 shifts take 10 hours at the current pool hashrate. This would mean it takes longer before a proof of work is fully paid, but also that the variance for a proof of work goes down. 24/7 miners shouldn't notice much, but those who don't mine 24/7 should experience reduced variance.

In other news the testing on port 9000 helped uncover a bottleneck that has now been fixed. A big thanks to all who are mining there to help with testing. The test is still running. I'll try and finish up what will hopefully be the next production version of the mining backend, let it run on the test port for a bit, then bring it over on the regular port.


Being a miner who doesn't mine 24x7 always, I like watching the BTC roll in shortly after I fire up my GPUs - and as I don't pay attention after they're shut down, I would rather see my rewards as I am mining. I would like the "N" to remain the same.

Also, the Thps counter in the website header still says "Ghps". Wink

And I've always wondered why there's no "cash out now" button, so I have to adjust auto-pay options. Sometimes I'd like to get small amounts earlier.

That's probably it. Can't verify ATM, cause server is giving error:

Code:
Proxy Error

The proxy server received an invalid response from an upstream server.
The proxy server could not handle the request GET /members/.

Reason: Error reading from remote server

Yay! You're cool. Smiley

Back up again. There's a problem with the web server. It locks up randomly with no error message and becomes completely unresponsive. So it's a bit difficult to figure out what the problem is. I'll keep a watch on it and see if I can find out what's going on. Sorry for the instability. Sad
