We had an issue with bitcoind (the backend to access the bitcoin peer-to-peer network), which caused mining to stop for a few minutes.

Everything is back to normal now. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Two stales in a row.
Doc, does the above issue have anything in common?

No, bitcoind is running without issues now.

It may be that the gigantic ddos going on against spamhaus is making block propagation a little wonky. Or it can just be bad luck.

 What's the deal with all the Stales? All these rigs running for nothing. Sure seems strange Pool jumps way up in speed and 3 stales right after. This is a pretty big deal i would think? I heard of bad luck but way to much coincidence right after Pool gains huge speed we are mainly mining stale blocks.

 Really hoping this gets fixed before difficulty gets out of control.

Trying to sign a new worker on.  A mac. What am I doing wrong.  I have a lot of pc's on line I have java loaded.  I click the button and no software comes up.

Could you see if it helps to clear the java cache? http://www.java.com/en/download/help/plugin_cache.xml

Does it show a window saying that it's downloading/verifying? Or is there nothing at all?






I got the mini to work using  firefox browser. was curious it hashes at 50MH but the mini uses 30 watts hashing and 22 watts with no hash.  so 8 watts is getting me 50Mh pretty good.

I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

  And 5 Stales now ? This has nothing to do with new Avalon's or Asic's joining the pool? Sure seems to have something to do with it. Pool jumps up almost a Thps over night and 5 stales since. So far. Should be around 10 or 12 by the end of the day.

Yeah, 5 stales in 2 days is a lot. I've been looking through everything to make sure nothing is wrong. I have several bitcoin nodes in different countries to ensure fast block propagation. This morning I upgraded to last one to bitcoind 0.8.1 which should move blocks a little faster. The nodes are all connected with each other and with the bitcoin nodes where new blocks are most often seen first. I'll be going through the list of nodes to see if it can be improved.

More hashpower joining the pool will not cause more stales and orphans. But the bitcoin network producing 7.3 blocks per hour (higher than the target of 6) increases the chance of stales and orphans somewhat. It's mostly just bad luck, though.

The first 2 though happened at a time with increased chance of stale/orphan blocks. Parts of the internet were lagging pretty badly at the time. I saw sometimes 75% packetloss in Frankfurt, Germany. That's probably related to Cyberbunker's DDoS war against Spamhaus.

Cyberbunker, which specializes in server hosting for criminals, was put on Spamhaus' spammer list. So they launched a giant DDoS attack against Spamhaus, so big it lagged the entire Internet. At its peak the DDoS was 300 Gbps, the biggest known so far. The Cyberbunker guy sits in a nuclear bunker in the Netherlands, claiming police and SWAT are unable to breach his bunker. And from there he coordinates his mad scientist plans to destroy the Internet. It sounds like a Hollywood movie, I know. Grin

It was all over the new in the USA about the net war. Too bad it wasn't a movie we could send in James Bond to crack the bunker or better yet Superman.

since many avalons are popping up everywhere then any ETA, when litecoin is planned. Thinking of moving my GPU-s to litecoin already...gets too hard to mine bitcoins already Sad

x2!

Started all ready with 50/50 - btc/litecoin.
Just to bad that bitminter do not offer litecoin mining, since i love the simplicity of bitminter
combined bitminter with BTCmon(ios) its awesome to monitor performance/luck/if something is wrong

yeah a litecoin pool will be helpful.  BTW it seems that BFL has a video on a working  build.  this means lots of hash may appear in the next 100 days.  we are around 55Th avalon will issue 600 x 60Gh or 36Th that gets us to 90Th.  I think asic miner will get the 50Th setup by the summer.  That gets us to 140Th and now that bfl has something that works  add 200- 400Th by sept . So we will be near 500Th by sept 1.

  all the gpus will not hash at a profit unless we can do litecoins.

Yeah, I hear you. It's always a question of priority. I'm right now working on BFL SC support for BitMinter client. Even though I work hard I have an insane amount of work to do, so I can't give an ETA, sorry.

By the way, cool video: Zhou Tonged - Cyprus Anthem (Swedish House Mafia - Don't You Worry Child)

Hey Doc. What's up with all this stales? #228546 seems valid btw.

Yep, that was valid, as was the one we just made 1 minute ago now. Sometimes it shows as stale for a bit before it updates and shows 119 confirmations remaining. I'll see if I can speed this up.

I don't know what these 5-10 minute ddos attacks are about, but I'd appreciate it if they would stop.

Wow...Litecoin price is around $4 now.  No rush, but I do look forward to using BitMinter for LTC mining.

Hash rate almost tripled in the Kepler architecture with some new code, would you consider adding nVidia support some time in the future?

any chance of starting a litecoin pool Dr? 
 

 Please start one.  The last week Litecoin mining would have earned me 650usd instead I earned 250 usd bit coin mining. I am not your biggest miner but I have been in the top 50 for at least 6 months. I mine 100% your pool. I have also paid for perks and given extra donations. For a long time 98% of my  Name coins when you got stuck with a lot of orphans. I have 78Th on order from BFL but that will be months from now. I do have 6000 hash now all GPUS ( i pull about 2400 watts) and the summer is coming I need the lirecoin pool to stay in action. THE AC will cost me 150 extra instead of saving 150 in heating. That is a 300 dollar swing for me. Also the difficulty just goes up and up.

I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.
