Are we down?  I can't connect, and pool hash power is dropping precipitously.

Website is up.

I contacted the anti ddos people. Let's see if they can figure it out. It looks like some users were unable to connect but are getting back a few at a time.

Not sure if it was a network blip or what it was. It looks like everyone are connected again?

korax  you will like them. I did some reading on github and antminer claims a max of 120gh so with the 2 gh overclock it looks like 60 sticks a pc.  the 49 port works well for me. I am looking at setting up a second 49 port and using a total of 60 sticks on the 2 .  this will also not stress the hubs or the psu's feeding them.

 My goal is to run 60 antminers = 120 gh

14 ice furies   35 gh

and a hd7970 for ltc 

all on the one machine.

right now I am running 37 ant miners running the  cgminer with the 2 gh oc

14 ice furies    running bfg miner with the overclock option

and the 1 hd7970. running gui miner

I seem to be doing okay and the machine is a nice money maker as is.


 MY alter ego.

We should be good up to 9,223,372,036,854,775,807 proofs of work aka "shares".

I hope that's not the block we are working on right now.

I've only mined on BitMinter due to ease of use on my Mac.

So my question is, do all pools go through blocks this long? I know everything averages out, but can some pools vary between 40 and 60, and some pools between 1 and 99 CDF? How are some pools luckier than others?

Luck comes and goes, for all pools. There's no magic to ensure always being lucky.

Really strange the pool not finding a block for nearly 24 hours, when running at 360-440 TH/sec - at current difficulty the pool should be minting 5 blocks per day. Yes I know its not a given to get a particular amount per day and things do get unlucky now and then, this just seems wayyyy at the far end of 'very very very bad luck', which seems to happen to this pool now and then.

This is also the same pool that brings you minted blocks with 0 shares submitted Wink

Probability theory would indicate that this will happen with 1% of our blocks. Why do you find it strange? Over time all pools hit 99% CDF blocks 1% of the time on average.

This is also the same pool that brings you minted blocks with 0 shares submitted Wink

Sometimes when a block is found after only a few seconds there is not time to register any work before the block is found.

Of course a little work has been done before it is found, it's not actually found with zero work.

Ghash.io had a 4 hour block a couple of days ago: it was a bit over 14 billion proof of work, so you are currently half way there Wink

Well 'coz we only really notice when we get a monster, confirmation bias makes us think it's like 20% of the time... though trying to negate that in my thinking, I'm still trying to spitball that it's been happening at about 3-5% the last few weeks.

When mining you spend most of your time on unlucky (long) rounds. That's because they take longer. That can be hard psychologically as it feels like you are having bad luck almost all the time. When you find some good luck it's usually over in a couple hours, because lucky rounds are finished quickly.

The last few weeks were pretty much right on the average, until a few days ago we had some bad luck. Good luck the last couple days nearly made up for it, but then we hit one of these worst 1% of blocks. Hoping for some quick rounds after this.
