Hello,

As many of you know, A while ago, mtmlr started working on a Primecoin GPU Miner, and he received a lot of money in donations from people, where when they donate they receive early beta access to the miner.

The beta-access period is now over, and the miner source is released, but the miner doesn't seem to work quite yet.

Some people are very mad about this, Others are not. I don't have any feelings of my own on it, because I didn't donate anyways.

So I've been wondering. What is are your feelings on this situation? Take the poll so that we can see what are the collective feelings of this forum are. Smiley

Note: Please not hating on Mtmlr or anyone else here. Hate posts will be deleted. Create your own thread if you are mad.

I'm ambivalent because I'm more worried about the current exchange rate of XPM and how its a loss to mine unless you have very efficient CPUs, very cheap power or both. Even the VPS boys won't be happy lately, most are running at a loss from what I can see.

Also are you being honest with yourself when you say "I don't have any feelings of my own on it, because I didn't donate anyways." because your Last Posts seem to indicate the GPU miner is the main thing you discuss?

There was a lot of hype that kept the donations trickling in and then crap was delivered... The code is buggy, inefficient and poorly written. As a professional software developer I am extremely unimpressed. Especially given the time he took and the lack of useful communication.

I agree. He could have at least communicated more often. I feel as if he does not care very much about the GPU Miner, to be honest. But I am not too sure about that.

It is, but that's because I only check this forum when I am bored. No interesting stuff is happening in all other threads I posted in. Tongue

I admit I have a pet peeve towards mtmlr, but it's just personal, nothing about the GPU miner.

Poll results are coming in and I find them rather interesting. I wonder how many more votes It will get!

I'm not into compiling my own files, so I'm just kinda so-so about it.  While I am happy it got made, there's something about old dogs and new tricks... I've forgotten more about programming than I probably ever knew Wink

Mtrlt got over 77 BTC and provided nothing.  He an A+++ Scammer.

You can't call this piece of garbage a "miner" seeing that it doesn't "mine".  I don't think anyone has mined a block with it.  This thread should be renamed "[POLL] What do you think about the Primecoin GPU Scammer".

He only released the "miner" so that he could get out of his responsibility of providing all the people who paid him a working miner.  In reality though, he released nothing because it doesn't work.  It just doesn't work poorly.  It doesn't work at ALL!

This is just a total joke.

Dam seems to have been a fundamental breakdown of the market system , well for some I guess.

I myself didnt contribute , but one result we did find was that the market showed it was not a snap to make this miner .

This I think is interesting in its self , and of course once in possession of the capital the Dev was never going to refund it .

The market being what it is states that he tried , but it was actually outside the bounds of the possibilities that he had availible at that time .

So I think we got answers here . BTC well spent .

I voted for positive since he at least provided a basic piece of software which prooves that some  or all parts of the mining can be done via GPU. Someone could now improve the software an make it effective. All I'm wondering now is, that nobody seems to have an interest to do so?!

I also understand people which donated/payed him and feel scammed. But I think he has done something usefull for the commuity (and got payed good for it).

I donated and I have no animosity about it. He never said anything about how it would perform.

I'm surprised by how negative the poll results are. 40% Extremely Negative?

I wonder if it'd be a good idea to create another poll asking if we think that the crash of Primecoin has any relevance to the GPU Miner. It could yield interesting results.

Edit: Done. Tongue

It's not mtmlr it's mtrlt. Interesting post nonetheless.

I have serious difficulty properly spelling his name.
