Well, sounds like mmc-wallet.com 's screwup to me, if they are not at all helpful, see if you can export your private key(s) and import it into a local wallet like multibit, then theoretically they should appear when that synchs up.

(I have had no problem transferring into vircurex either, but use btc-e now, which is also reliable, hacks at vircurex make me nervous of them now though, change password frequently and use a unique one for that site, it's good practice to do that anyway)

his advice is okay but vircurex and btc-e have both been hacked. small amounts were lost.

my pattern of coin storage is mine send only alt coins to vircurex.  convert to btc.  transfer some of  the btc to a cold wallet transfer some of the btc to coinbase (USA only) convert to cash.

Holding any kind of coins in large amounts means a lot of risk.

Let them pile up at bitminter and then transfer them to your exchange of choice when you are ready to sell them.

And what about Mazacoin merged mining?   Grin

What sayeth the Doctor?

Second and third even, since maza seems fairly "worthy" ...

The argument against ix, dev, io etc was I thought due to sporadic abandonment by devs and also some issues with some of them using huge (and exponentially increasing) amounts of RAM. i.e. minerd go crashy crashy a lot.

Anyway, would be nice to get some "fresh" merge coins which have some enthusiasm behind them, re-inject a bit of excitement for the sub terahash miners so they can see whole coins building up in their wallets.

I'd also highly value the prospect of drawing in more hash to the pool, get our network share percentage up, get this variance toned down a bit.

I have set up my namecoin wallet on mmc-wallet.com and I have pointed Bitminter there. They have loyally been sending the coins off to my wallet, but most of them are not showing up (we are only talking a little over 1 at the present time...oooohhhh...$3.50!!), but I want to understand how I can get this resolved.

Messages to the wallet web site have gone un-answered - you get what you pay for there I guess (free).

I'd recommend not using online wallets. You can download an NMC wallet from namecoin.info. Or you could send the coins directly to an exchange if you just want to sell them for bitcoins.

I would immediately stop sending coins to nmc-wallet.com (I assume you meant that and not mmc-wallet.com). I'd also recommend moving whatever coins you are able from their site. If they are just taking your coins and not answering, using their site is a bad idea. Also they appear to not even use SSL...?

Apparently it's a suspected scam site:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=497899.0
http://forum.namecoin.info/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1480

There are a lot of scammers out there wanting to steal your coins, so be very careful where you send them. I hope you didn't lose much.

Need help with Antminer U1. I am running Xubuntu 12.04 with block erupters now, but I am switching to Antminers. I need help installing the driver as I want to use the Bitminter client. I need help with the command line commands. I have posted this question elsewhere on this forum and on the Ubuntu forums and have not gotten any replies. I have googled driver installation and all I find is how to install BFGminer, not the driver.
Thanks

You're sure it's not already there? Try the lsusb command after plugging the devices in, to see if they are recognized. You can laso have a look at /dev/ttyUSB* to see if the devices show up when you plug them in.

Don't know if it's normal, but I do know it's painful.

yeah it can happen.  this is now a small pool. percent wise    down side means bad luck is really long and slow.  if you look at the chart 92% lasts 1 day.  there was a time a 92% block would take us under 4 hours .  why asic miner was king of the world last spring and came to our pool we had more then 30% of the entire network.  we made lots of 5 and 10 minute blocks.

This pool has a huge upside if it gets hot you can earn 3x what you should in a single day.     of course when you move here from a pool like btcguild or cex.io you can be very annoyed when the cold streak comes.  I finally got back to a high hash rate and am now at 850gh.  Was with the doc for more then 15 months in a row. but I moved to btcguild in jan of this year.

A few days ago I felt luck and switched back here hoping for good luck.  So my 850gh has earned me about .04btc in a 2.5 day period.
if I had stayed with btcguild I would have made around .24 btc  I was hoping to over earn.
not under earn with the switch.
  I think I will bail tonight as the bad luck is tough.

That is probably my plan too unfortunately unless this block gets solved soon and the next one is better. I know it's all luck, but I am at 1.5-2 Thps, so the bad luck is really killing me.

Naw - only like 1.1 so far. I think I can absorb $3.75 in losses :-)

Really new - waiting until I got a beast of a miner before jumping in. Will be at 6TH/s within the next 5 weeks or so. Just want to get this all squared away before I start hitting bigger numbers. I think I might try setting up another wallet somewhere and get out of mmc-wallet. Thinking BTC-e.

Same here. Just getting going. Spent some time at BTC Guild on PPS, and was really digging the steady 0.1 BTC every 12 hours. Since coming here 5 days ago, I have 'lost' over 1BTC and counting. Unless this changes dramatically within the next 12 hours, I will be leaving too. Cool web site and stats, but not $600+/week cool.

My wife has an old school superstition avoid changes on a Friday.

 So It is noon in New Jersey thus I will mine until midnight then bail.  

If I were an Irish- American instead of an Italian/Norwegian-American  I would stick this out until St Patrick's Day.


 when the 2 big pools do the steady payouts it is hard to stay on a small pool on a cold streak.

With 850 gh earning close to 63 usd a day I just can't afford to under earn that much cash.  I moved back  in the middle of the streak

 there had been the 75%  the 91% the and the 76 % had passed already.  

but back to back 96, 92  and now at least 97 are really hard.

  I really feel for someone that switched at the 75%  as he or she now has 5 bad and is on the 6th bad one.

I understand.  I'm almost at that same point.  Not even the 2 big pools.  I hate to consider leaving, but I'm in the market to mine bitcoins.  Since I do have Irish in me, I might just stick around to st patty's day.

All I can say is that the luck has suuuuucccckkkkeeeedddd, but I jumped to this pool from slush a while back, due to the merged mining, and more steady payouts, and not to mention the good Dr. is very responsive and active on the board here....I don't really want to leave this pool due to the fact that I just think its a streak of bad luck, and the fact that my low has rate <=30GHs nets me more here than on the bigger pools where I am a rain drop amongst the Mississippi River of miners, yeah I don't have high hash rates, but I am not doing it for the money, its more of a hobby to see what I can do with limited funds for hardware (and what I do make I put to upgrading hardware or buying other cool gizmos).  
  Right now i am waiting to receive 2 more blades, and that will push me to the 50 Ghs mark...give or take....thats  quite a bit to me considering I started with just GPU mining on a laptop in November out of curiosity, and slowly collected hardware....(really I should have just started with blades, but the way they were described kind of put me off of them, then I got my first, and was like well these are easy....).  I want to save up my bit pennies and maybe be able to buy a big miner when they are fresh and new, but right now I am satisfied with the equipment I have and enjoy seeing it just work away....
   I already know that pretty soon (as if they already are not) my first gen usb block erupters will be useless, but I like watching them blink sometimes, and the fact that they have a lower error rate than my one blade that is running (which will be soon rectified once my new network switch comes in and I can hardwire its server rather than wifi which I know is bad).  This is more of a long term project for me, learning watching, and seeing what I can do with what...
  So I have no plans of jumping pools anytime soon (like my hash would really make a difference)...but it would be nice to get some blocks a little more often, so I can get more pennies and add to the network with those pennies...

ahh the good old days   not much invested more fun then anything else.

for me I have 7k in btc and ltc mining as I type even though It is all paid for and overall I made maybe 11k since 2012.

Running all this gear I need to earn or the power bill is a killer.

 I spend about 2k watts an hour to mine my  850-870gh  that is about 35 cents an hour or 8.40 usd a day or 250 usd a month.  This slow speed is a killer for me. what are we up to 30 ours plus?

All I can say is that the luck has suuuuucccckkkkeeeedddd, but I jumped to this pool from slush a while back, due to the merged mining, and more steady payouts, and not to mention the good Dr. is very responsive and active on the board here....I don't really want to leave this pool due to the fact that I just think its a streak of bad luck, and the fact that my low has rate <=30GHs nets me more here than on the bigger pools where I am a rain drop amongst the Mississippi River of miners, yeah I don't have high hash rates, but I am not doing it for the money, its more of a hobby to see what I can do with limited funds for hardware (and what I do make I put to upgrading hardware or buying other cool gizmos).  
  Right now i am waiting to receive 2 more blades, and that will push me to the 50 Ghs mark...give or take....thats  quite a bit to me considering I started with just GPU mining on a laptop in November out of curiosity, and slowly collected hardware....(really I should have just started with blades, but the way they were described kind of put me off of them, then I got my first, and was like well these are easy....).  I want to save up my bit pennies and maybe be able to buy a big miner when they are fresh and new, but right now I am satisfied with the equipment I have and enjoy seeing it just work away....
   I already know that pretty soon (as if they already are not) my first gen usb block erupters will be useless, but I like watching them blink sometimes, and the fact that they have a lower error rate than my one blade that is running (which will be soon rectified once my new network switch comes in and I can hardwire its server rather than wifi which I know is bad).  This is more of a long term project for me, learning watching, and seeing what I can do with what...
  So I have no plans of jumping pools anytime soon (like my hash would really make a difference)...but it would be nice to get some blocks a little more often, so I can get more pennies and add to the network with those pennies...


ahh the good old days   not much invested more fun then anything else.

for me I have 7k in btc and ltc mining as I type even though It is all paid for and overall I made maybe 11k since 2012.

Running all this gear I need to earn or the power bill is a killer.

 I spend about 2k watts an hour to mine my  850-870gh  that is about 35 cents an hour or 8.40 usd a day or 250 usd a month.  This slow speed is a killer for me. what are we up to 30 ours plus?

40 hours
