Keep rooting for me, then! Cheesy

Unfortunately I've had to turn most of my hashing power off for the rest of the day; hoping to bring it back online after a few hours.

I guess that makes me even more of an underdog!

Things are heating up on the top 50 fastest miners list. First mmt caught up with Ayrat at the top of the list. But now we see soniq push fast them into a solid first place hashrate-wise.

In the race rankings, though, we only see some changes among positions 7-8-9. subseaguru's hash is proving hard to beat. With only 16-17 GH/s he was very lucky to get a hash that good. But can the luck last another 17 days to the end of the race?

It's time for the mid-race analysis.

Early on we saw bitmeme take the lead with his tried and true strategy "mine fast". At first this seemed like a good strategy, and mining at 4+ TH/s got him quickly into first place.

The problems started for bitmeme when a duo of small miners arrived. KPR120 and subseaguru quickly deployed their strategy "be incredibly lucky". Mining at a sneaky 30 and 16 GH/s their strategy proved superior. We first saw KPR120 move into first place, and later subseaguru.

The luck strategy has proven resilient, although we did see nicetime get a good block yesterday. It was close but only got him fourth place. Other than that the last few days have been quiet, not even a single one of Fefox's rigs catching on fire.

On the top50 fastest users list we have seen a few users improve their hashrate and a couple new users arriving. But there are not that many changes. Rather than fast miners, we see big masses of slow miners joining up. We can only attribute this to the result of the recent duel between the "mine fast" and "be incredibly lucky" strategies. Miners are learning and adapting.

So, with half the race remaining, which of the many possible strategies should miners go for? Being lucky seems like the winning choice so far.

Definitely the most exciting race I've ever seen!  I'm certainly working on that "being lucky" strategy, but haven't got it right quite yet...

Talking about luck: I mined a block the 1st day, even hours of my miners started hashing at the pool and since then nothing  Tongue

Woohoo, KNC upped the ante, apparently November units will hash at 650GH+ !! w00t. They do however have a production delay due to a component delivery issue, but probably won't affect the winner here much, since the contest won't be decided until the end of the month.

Whoa! subseaguru was looking so secure holding the lead for so long. But ScandyAndy jumps into first place with an even better hash.

Still, we have almost half the race left.

Will someone luck out and take over the lead?

kj nonchalantly tosses in an extremely low hash.

We have almost 11 days left of the race, but this will be a tough one to beat.

He can almost taste the KnC Jupiter. It tastes like metal.

tastes like metal, with a bit of some gritty paper tasting objects thrown in

Dacentec, best deals for US dedicated servers. They regularly restock $20-$25 Opterons with 8-16GB RAM & 2x1-2TB HDD's (ofc, usually lots of other good stuff to choose from).  I did a Serverbear benchmark of one of my $20/mo Opteron (June last year), it's here.  Have had about a half dozen different servers with Dacentec, & none have failed to sustain at least 40MB/s (burst higher). My favorite is a 12-month rent-to-own ZT Systems 2XL5520 16GB 2x2TB SATA for $40/month (got lucky with the 'off-brand', haven't seen a RTO 2xL5520 for under $50/mo since -- at least for monthly contracts).  wholesaleinternet.com has some ancient 2-core intel CPUs @ $10/mo sometimes (I got an Intel Core 2 6300 @ 1.86GHz, with a 250GB HDD with 46000 hours on it, LOL. $20 @ Dacentec is much better, if you can grab one). joesdatacenter.com (same location as Wholesale Internet) also occasionally has specials (or if you don't want to wait, it has an AMD Opteron 170 @ $16/mo).

I'm curious, too.  I figured there'd be a calculator/converter somewhere, but I couldn't find one.

Thanks, dat's a big number, in more familiar units to help grasp it, how many furlongs would that be if that many blue whales were laid end to end?

j/k

But scuse the n00b genuine question, is that the result of the share difficulty shown in cgminer multiplied by current difficulty?
