Sorry for payments not happening for a few hours. The payment processor was stuck on a namecoin payment with a namecoind that was just not responding. I suspect alt coins have a lot of old bugs that were fixed in bitcoin ages ago. I'll need a watcher mechanism to detect when namecoin locks up.

Namecoin value is up lately, so they are a decent income boost for miners now. Not so sure about adding merged mining with other "bug coins" though. The alt coins just aren't properly maintained the way bitcoin is.

Anyway, all payments are out and things are back to normal again.

Another thing; many are asking about why BitMinter has produced some blocks with only 1 transaction lately. This is part of the many changes I made lately to better handle the issue with old miners randomly attacking the server. If you run an old version of cgminer or bfgminer your requests to the server go on a separate queue where you get work more slowly than everyone else. You also get work for producing 1 transaction blocks because it is slightly cheaper to make.

If you run a cgminer or bfgminer version below 2.7:
You are causing yourself and all other miners to lose transaction fee income on the blocks you make. You were causing slow server response and a high reject ratio, before these changes. You are getting work slower than others on the pool. You are probably getting more stales too. I know this isn't something you intended to do and you may not have been aware of it before. But you are running a very old miner version with some serious bugs in it. Upgrade today! Smiley

After fixing the stuck payments earlier today some of the payments still didn't go out. Fixing this as soon as possible.

  I checked and now it is fixed

Yes, just before WKNiGHT made his first block on minter (congrats!), all the payments finally went out.

It was a bug in namecoind that first caused payments to fail last night. I fixed this by restarting namecoind which had locked up. But this had in turn triggered a bug in my own code and some payments would not go out until I could locate and fix this issue.

My apologies for the late payments today. Everything should be in order again now.

DrHaribo,

I'm not sure if you use monit or not, but it might be a good idea. It can watch processes and take specific actions if they lock up or start using too much memory.

Hmm, looks quite nice. I had not seen that before. The plan was to use nagios (http://www.nagios.org/), but I think I will do a little research and see what my options are. Monit looks like it may be less hassle.

does it take a while for the payout to happen - I changed it to .1 (less then 30 minutes ago) but I still have 1.8 btc sitting for payout

Payouts happen at the top of the hour or when a block is found. I think.....

It appears nmc are around 0.0047 - 0.005BTC in value right now. An improvement from last month.

I'm just going to let my Nmc pile up in my account for that snowy day when they are really worth a pretty penny. Who knows, who knows.

This was with myopenid.com? Their service is a bit unreliable, but it seems to be working again now.

It was the Verisign one that I was using, not sure of the others. But yes, it is working again now. Thanks.

Bad luck combined with watching BTC prices fall is painful!  All is well, though...Just silly emotions.

Falling prices are good right now. Now is the time to invest. I really recommend buying a large quantity of coin to sit on for 6 months to a year.

You're probably right.  Sadly, all my money (debt actually) is tied up in mining equipment.  Until it's paid off, I have to sell at whatever the going rate is.

Nice streak of luck in the last hour or so!  Grin

There is no direct correlation on price vs difficulty.

I know difficulty lags significantly behind price movement, was just making the observation.
