No one here needs his suggestions. He's acting like an arrogant fuck using every chance to piss Docs legs. Who needs that shit ?

If someone offends someone else, it's probably because there's some truth to the matter.  I didn't see him as arrogant, why did you?

Last I checked it's still a somewhat free world.  No need to take things so personal.

Kano is asking DrHaribo to remove the feature, which would limit the freedom of people to CPU mine if they wish to CPU mine.  Kind of like the government makes laws to try and protect stupid people from themselves which also limit the freedom of people.

If your purpose is to mine with a CPU for profit, then no, it doesn't make sense.  However, even kano himself just admitted that he does short testing runs with CPU mining.  Why remove the option and not let other people do CPU mining if they want?  Kano is essentially saying that what is good for him (CPU mining) isn't good for anyone else, and shouldn't be available to anyone else.  In my opinion, that is an absurd viewpoint.  There are a variety of reasons for a person to mine Bitcoins, and only one of those is for profit.  Others might include testing, experimenting, or educating.
Actually if you bothered to read what I said ... yeah that may be a little difficult when your opinion is so ridiculous and biased ... I said
...
Then hopefully it pops up a message telling everyone that they are losing money by pressing that CPU button ...
Since there are "plenty of newcomers" that use the miner.
Myself, I will not run a closed source, obfuscated, java code miner when I have access to a free open source miner with nothing hidden.
Too risky IMO.
Why do you believe I have a biased opinion?  Who has biased me, and how/why?

Sure you said that bit about a message popping up (which I believe is a good idea, and which DrHaribo seems to have vaguely implied he has implemented), but then you follow it up with the post I quoted, stating that DrHaribo's choice to leave the CPU miner in didn't make sense, that we don't want CPU miners (who is "we", and how do you know they all agree with you?), and that what DrHaribo said is false (how is it? It seems a user would have to compile it themselves if they wanted to CPU mine).  I felt it prudent to follow up with support as to why CPU mining can be appropriate in some cases.  One particularly relevant case would be someone experimenting with Bitcoin mining who doesn't have a GPU capable of mining.

I don't think whichever miner you choose to run is relevant to the conversation.

Bias:
Statistics. a systematic as opposed to a random distortion of a statistic as a result of sampling procedure.

Your sampling ignored something that made your argument invalid.

I chose a solution that made the most sense to me.
Really?
Offering CPU mining to people who are most likely ignorant of the stupidity of doing it ... makes the most sense?
Go figure.
As for "we" I am referring to ckolivas and myself - no one else.

It is when DrHaribo says:
...
Why don't you try it and find out? Or are you just here for the trolling?
I explained why I wouldn't run it.
Though I guess I could look through the java code for a message about CPU mining ... though the obfuscation makes that slightly more cumbersome to do.

Sounds like I misunderstood portions of your post, certainly.

I simply do not wish to see the CPU miner removed from BitMinter is all.  I think it is a good feature and a necessary tool for newbies.

pressing button doesnt do anything. Have to exit client and start it again (only way to get it working). Have had same thing couple of times under win 8 beta comp. This one was win 7. What version it has dont know right now, prolly the one that was out 3 months ago Cheesy Can check if needed.

That sounds like the Java bug I added a workaround for in the new beta. You may want to upgrade your java to the latest release to make sure it won't happen again.

Also, I need more feedback from BFL miners before I can release 1.3.1. Hint, hint owners of BFL FPGAs Smiley


I am running the new beta 1.3.1beta2 on a 7970 and bfl single. Just turned it up but so far so good. Is a couple mhash faster too; previously I was getting 8 mhash under the driver I ran (so 808mhash firmware would run at 800 on bitminter) but now it is 5-6 mhash less instead of 8. The 7970 seems faster too but could be my imagination as gpu tends to fluctuate quite a bit more than the fpga.

Windows 7 64 bit running latest java 7 update 11

Will let you know if I have any issues and post this on your software thread.

808Mh/s takes 5.31555s to hash a nonce range.
Each block (on average) you will lose half a nonce range ... if the code is optimal - i.e. if it aborts the nonce range when an LP arrives and throws away the work - without counting it since it can't be counted.
Thus 2.65888s
Thus 0.4430% of 10 minutes
and 0.4430% of 808Mh/s is 3.58Mh/s
So the max average expected hash rate is a bit over 804MH/s
So assuming the reported number is accurate - it's not far off ... Smiley

Yeah that's a (minor) issue with all implementations of Stratum so far also.
Everyone's miner will notice a server restart since it's a constant TCP/IP connection.

cgminer currently throws away any work when the stratum connection is lost since no pools will accept the old work
(as I mentioned at OzCoin)
It's not much of an issue for anyone with a reliable internet connection, but for someone with an unreliable internet connection it can lose a noticeable number of shares.

Most stratum pools should be only losing something like a few shares a day (or something like 0.05% or less) for each miner, but with an unreliable internet connection on stratum, that can become multiple times as many rejects (though of course it's still way less than GetWork or GBT)

That's what I like to hear! Thanks for testing. Looks like 1.3.1 will soon be ready.

Each block (on average) you will lose half a nonce range ... if the code is optimal - i.e. if it aborts the nonce range when an LP arrives and throws away the work - without counting it since it can't be counted.

Yes, with every block change it aborts the current work. And the already processed hashes that are thrown away are not counted towards the hashrate. So at every block change you can see a dip in the hashrate. That can be a little confusing for some users, but it's a result of how the BFL FPGAs work.

Cool. v1.3.1 should be ready soon.

Can you send me an email at operator@bitminter.com - then I can let you know when there is something new to test. Thanks for the help! Smiley

Any ideas why I can't mine using the stratum protocol using bfgminer?

I prefer to use cgminer, but being a Gentoo Linux user, the version which is capable of stratum has yet to appear in my repos, so I am stuck with cgminer-2.7.*

However, I do have bfgminer-2.10.* which is supposed to be capable of stratum, and yet it fails miserably.

I try to connect with....
stratum+tcp://mint.bitminter.com:3333/

It complains no servers can be found.
It does however work using getwork - the traditional way http:// etc etc

Whatever you do, do it properly!
