Hi Rob,

I think the easier solution would be to put up a tutorial for each step (with screenshots) on how to CPU mine. Then people will have an idea and it will give more clarity on whats going wrong. That's the best solution I can suggest considering the time constraints of the project and project developers.

Thanks

+1 for this. If CPU mining is achievable we (people with Nvidia's) need tutorial how to do it correctly.

All-

Since we are moving through block 26150 early, please ensure you are running the latest version -- "1.1.3.7" available on gridcoin.us in Prod.
This version only forwards the secure blocks to the rest of the network.

If you already upgraded this week try typing "upgrade" from the rpc, and you will auto-upgrade.

Best Regards,
Rob H.

Is everyone's wallet having trouble loading up the new blocks lately or is it just me?

I am updated to the latest version(rpc "upgrade" works fine), even deleted chainstate and blocks..after the blocks have been downloaded again, now the wallet sometimes is a couple blocks behind the network and takes ~15 minutes to update 1-3 blocks.

edit: I don't have any connection troubles myself Smiley

Yes I confirm.  The difficulty should regauge within 30 minutes and the time span should auto adjust between blocks.  I think the forward/back blocks are miners on old versions trying to submit bad blocks.  They are being rejected by the majority.

I had mine staying at 1 hour behind for 15 mintues, and when i restarted the pc it was all up to date. So just reboot and relaunch the client.

Great, thanks for the info. Thought that might be the problem since ''listminers'' showed ~5 miners on the old one today.

Bug found for users who need to resync completely.  Fixed.  Version 5.0 available now.

Whats the problem?


The black bg/green text reminds me of those old win98 high contrast themes.  On the transactions list you can't even read anything on the black lines except the address.

Do you have 1137?  We fixed that the day after Thanksgiving, you should see 3 colors on the transaction list now.

Another thing I want to mention to everyone having sync problems and reliability problems:

These problems are almost exactly what we went through when we went live; nothing has changed in this new wallet from yesterday to today except for one more field is being enforced- the boinchash field.

The problem is 30% of the users are still running old versions and sending mined blocks back & forth and the client doesn't handle it very well and "falls off the network" and you have to restart it.  We should see the same reliability we had yesterday after the majority upgrade and stop mining with the old version.

I love this coin.

I have been using BOINC for about a year or so now because I love science and I believe deeply in what BOINC is trying to do to advance humanity ad our knowledge of the sciences.

It makes me happy to see BOINC gaining much needed exposure and it's even nice to have the added incentive of being rewarded for my activity on BOINC.

I did have one small issue with installation, on Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit OS it seems I need to run the wallet as Administrator in order for it to read BOINC activity (maybe because I run with higher Windows security settings for my system) but other than that the process has been pretty straight forward.

I feel this coin has a lot of future potential, especially if the BOINC developers and Gridcoin developers were to link up and work together on full integration. The potential could exist for individual projects to reward individual users with extra coins for being especially productive or to give to new members as an incentive to join new projects.

I have joined the "Gridcoin" team for each project I am a part of inside of BOINC (except for the projects that don't have a "Gridcoin" group yet, lol) and I am excited to see where things go from here.

I'm very happy to see someone creating incentives to contribute to advancements in science, health and technology.

Thank you and keep up the good work!

Thanks Bob, it's nice to hear praise for all the effort so far especially since it's been all for free.  Hopefully the payoff will be all the heat we save in the future.

Our network is stabilizing now.  Block explorer restarted.  We raised the minimum network protocol level to 1000 in the last version (30 minutes ago), and that requires all nodes to talk to v25 or newer, and seems to be helping.  For the last hour I have not seen any of my 4 machines fall off the net, and that makes me feel a lot better.....

Have a good one.

Rob H.
