What pool would you guys recommend I use while bitminter is down?  Currently running Eclipse which offers a PPS Rate of 0.000007971

I haven't experimented with PPS very much to be honest.  Bitminter has generally satisfied me for the most part, but there has been a nagging itch making me wonder if I could generate more elsewhere.
I'm currently experimenting with POT on Ozcoin. If only there were other pools that support merged mining over Stratum. Undecided

What is the PPS rate over there?  I'm not too concerned about merged mining as namecoin is useless.

Eclipse isn't using Stratum...why is that desired?  Other than ASIC needs it of course...

PPS on Ozcoin currently has a 3% fee. As for Stratum, I love it because I'm currently at ~3,000 accepted shares and still have yet to get a rejected share. The only GetWork pool I've accomplished that with is MaxBTC. Smiley

Thanks for the info.

This is what Eclipse says regarding fees and invalid block payout offsets...does ozcoin pay for invalids?

Quote
...we charge a 5% fee, although you are paid regardless of whether or not a block is found or even if a block becomes invalid, so the fee is ultimately 0% over the long term.

Yes, it's pure PPS so you get paid a fixed amount per share regardless of when/if a block is found and even if the block is orphaned or stale.

Last I checked namecoins give about 3% extra income.

Namecoins and transaction fees are much more important now after the reward halving.

I will be very sad the day we have to let go of merged mining.  NMC income is well worth it, IMO.

Thanks for the updates. Namecoin is not useless. Ironically I was going to withdraw my Namecoins when the site went down. Any idea of when you will be able to get the site back up?

Yes, when is the DDoS attack scheduled to be finished?  Their lack of customer service in keeping us apprised may be cause for us to look elsewhere for our DDoS needs.

it depends on location, my rooms are getting very cold without mining and its winter. Luckily it isnt so cold right now (only -10°C), but a week ago it was -20°C till -25°C, and without mining it would be VERY cold.

sounds like you need a backup heater. Smiley

Lol. Seriously, don't freeze yourself to death, run BOINC or something Wink

The math says you can't, unless you go for some 105% PPS pool or something that in fact "invests" your earnings and end up bankrupt when their "super secret, profitable and reliable investment" doesn't work anymore. Been there, done that, didn't lose as much as some others though.

I agree I want a refund Cheesy

Yeah, we are back online. There may be a little downtime now and then today as I make some changes, though.

we have just lost stratum.

conected miners stopped getting work and swiched to backup,
 after restart , GBT with longpoll is negotiated instead of stratum


/edit:

stratum back online,
 not restarted miners started working and are back from bacup to bitminter,
 those restarted need another restart to leave GBT

Sorry for the slow server response this morning. Some buggy miners were hammering the server. It was pushing out up to 50 Mb/s of work data at times. After a restart the amount of work requests looks to be back to normal. I'll be working on ways to better deal with this.

Stratum didn't go away. But some miners seem to think that if there is 1 failure on Stratum then they should go back to getwork or getblocktemplate forever, where multiple failures are allowed (by the miner client). At least that's the impression I have. Perhaps it helps to specify explicitly in the config that you want Stratum by using a stratum+tcp://mint.bitminter.com:3333 URL, instead of relying on the miner to see the X-Stratum HTTP header and switch over automatically.

In addition to low traffic, Stratum has another advantage. It will never hammer the server with work requests because of a bug. With Stratum there are no work requests.

Great pool, great app.

their miner pushes my hashing speed by 3Mhashes

before = 7mhashes, now 10mhashes
And their UI is very user friendly and
gives us the needed information.

EndTheFed123, if you had just taken the money it wouldn't have ended like this Sad
BTW this hasn't been the real DPony13 since he "came back", I just hacked this account, SirLolicon is the real DPony13 I think.

I just realized that I have in total about 20% more accepted namecoin shares compared to bitcoin shares. Not speaking of per round shares here, those will obviously be wildly different because the chains don't have same difficulty. Maybe I just don't understand merged mining well enough, but shouldn't the total share numbers be roughly equal? I thought every share is used on both chains.

Isn't that because NMC difficulty is lower than BTC difficulty?  So a share that isn't good enough to meet Bitcoin difficulty might be good enough to meet NMC difficulty?
