I see, its just that vista is pretty known to have lots of problems. I am a Mac user so I am not sure of the details but I've heard that XP is a much more stable environment and that vista was the worst ever released. Not sure about Win 7 & 8 in general but I know some people are working on those without issue and i've never met anyone running vista before.

Just a tid bit.. but maybe you're right that the client should run on ANY computer since its java based, vista not being an exception. Maybe the Doc has some better advice.

eww.. offline for 7 hours due to a 2 second power outage at my office.

Time a battery backup you dummy.. me.

I have 3 UPS'es for all my machines. Saved me yesterday through two consecutive 5 minute power outages with a subsequent low-voltage period (we got 205V instead of 230V into the house for a couple of hours). Grin


Yes this is what I need to do. Maybe I'll exchange some of my coin and buy one today.

I agree ,I'am running vista and the Bitminter client does not reconnect after the smallest of disruptions.

Try the latest version (1.4.2) and go "settings" -> "options..." then the "devices" tab. Set it to rescan every few seconds or minutes, and turn on "repeat rescan of failed ports". This will ensure that even though the hub or ASIC device doesn't work properly for a while after it disappears and reappears, BitMinter client will not give up after the first try, but will keep trying all COM ports over and over.

That's not on by default as all the error messages you would get if you have a COM port that is not an ASIC device are pretty annoying.

Doc I'm running win 7, I do not get any warning messages. I have my client set just like you described. The problem i am having just started a few days ago. I will lose a usb stick  it wont restart, and the client does not see its offline. This has happened twice now. I have to unplug it, plug it back in then the client will pick it back up.

In the client the device just locks up, even hashrate gets stuck? Try reinstalling the driver for the sticks - I think that's some sort of driver issue.

Good to know if I decided to switch back to the Bitminter app again! Smiley

What I have seen with Windows 8.1 64bit on a 2GB RAM system, you can add Windows 7 to that pile! Smiley

On release vista was a mess granted ,since the patches the comparisons to win7 for performance is more or less on par so since I'am familiar with the interface I just did not see a need to buy or use win7 or 8 .
If someone points out that vista is causing any issues or win7 or 8 is superior then I am able to upgrade .
It iss just a pain in the ass getting used to a new os.

One other reason for not wanting to have windows 8 is that there was an official recommendation to some users not to upgrade since there is a built in monitoring or back door type deal with it .
If I can find the information I will post it here ,but Bitcoin is about keeping private and windows 8 about making you 100% public .

I Know my vista has remote access, but I have control and can overide remote access by microsoft if I wish .

The newer platforms have no such feature making it impossible to stop big brother controlling what features or content I use .
Basically I will be allowed to use what the government feel I should use .
Personally the new technology is about zero personal privacy .

May be some one could suggest a suitable secure os for bitcoin ?

NSA Backdoor Exploit in Windows 8 Uncovered

In any event, I'm wanting to run my devices on a Linux device now, not just due to Microsoft's infamy in this arena, but because that's what it seems like most bitcoin developers are familiar with. (Namecoin-Qt doesn't even have a Mac binary yet....)

ATTENTION BFL MINING NEWBS: Just got your Jalapenos in? Wondering how to get the most value for the least hassle? Give BitMinter a try! It's a smaller pool with a fair & low-fee payment method, lots of statistical feedback, and it's easier than EasyMiner! (Yes, we want your hashing power, but seriously, it IS the easiest pool to use!

I started with Ubuntu, but had to switch to Fedora on my main laptop, since Ubuntu had issues with my hardware. The German computer magazine touted Linux Mint (how apt a name for the BitMinter community ;-) ) as a very Linux noob friendly system in its October issue. There is lots of info on Google and trust me you will google a lot of things when getting started with Linux, until you get the hang of it. It's not as easy as downloading an .exe file and double click to install software, for example.

I guess for us coming from Windows a lot comes down to the desktop environment (initially anyway), so look at the screen shots on the distros' site. For a relative quick and easy way to try different distros I used: http://www.linuxliveusb.com/

Dude the NSA has the keys to everything and not just Microsoft. But if you are going jump on Microsoft let me say this, when Microsoft discovers a bug in any of its products it tells the NSA first before going ahead and developing a patch to fix the bug.
