Afternoon Smiley

I guess it's possible that I have a misunderstanding going on here, but I'll explain what I want to achieve:

I am currently mining on p2pool with btcguild as a backup (failover doing nothing). I understand that p2pool has a high share difficulty, currently 106000, and that it lies to the miner about the difficulty to get it submitting shares, shares that the miner submits to p2pool under 106000 are discarded by p2pool but are used to calculate the miner's hash rate, DOA etc...

What I would like to do, is make cgminer, bfgminer, whatever miner, submit all shares under 106000 to btcguild instead of p2pool, so they're not 'wasted' and submit all shares above 106000 to p2pool. I understand that this means that p2pool won't accurately know my hash rate, but shares over the difficulty should still be accepted and earnings should be the same.... This would effectively increase the productivity of my miner.

Does this make sense?


Forget about, this, maybe even delete it entirely Smiley
Just re-read how proof of work works, and realized that I'm talking total crap Smiley

My P2pool (2% fee, I guarantee nothing....)
