Fuse,

Thanks again for all your hard work. I do not need live stats. What are API calls and what are they used for? Did I just expose my computer illiteracy?!

If I can get the cards, I am planning to bring a dedicated miner online later next week built around a pair of 280X's, and it will be dedicated to this TagCoin and this pool.

I need to start working how to turn TAG into cash to pay some bills, I do not want to dump coins, just sell enough to pay the bills. I know I should not be putting all my eggs into one basket, but I firmly believe that TAG is going to be a success as it has many attributes including a great dev and admin team and more importantly a reason to exist.

Thanks for all your hard work.

NP, mate... thanks for sticking around.

That goes for everyone that stuck with the pool through all this.  I said it at the beginning, I just the pool to feel like a community where everyone has a say in how it runs.  I don't want to be the greedy pool op who only cares about padding his wallet.

I just got a sweet deal last week on a 5830, 5850 and a 850W power supply.  So it's not a lot more hashpower, but it's going towards the pool.  If I come across more deals, I'm snatching them up.

I think once Mark gets the currency exchange nailed down on Tagbond, it will be extremely easy to do some money conversion.  At that point I won't have to transfer TAG->BTC->USD just to pay for the pool servers, which is kind of a pain now that I think about it.  I just wish someone like Bitpay would make a debit card backed by BTC.  So when you load your wallet with BTC, you would be able to pay for things in USD with it.  I would pay an addition 10% or something for a card that did that.

As far as the ASICs and FPGA scrypt boxes go, I've had some conversations with members about maybe going down the road of hosting one or two and selling "shares", much like what the big BTC pool farms do.  If it gets to that point, I'd be very interested in hearing peoples opinions of this.

Also...

The whale has come back, and things are looking really good with the live stats disabled.  I don't want to jinx it, but I think we might be ok now.  I might shoot Hashfaster's OP a PM and let him know how to alleviate some of the load.

Fuse - I see you invited? the whale back.  Couldn't care less about live stats, that's what F5 is for!!

24Kilo - I couldn't source any risers locally but they came pretty quick from Hong Kong.  I got them $7.50 each.  Now the price gougers on ebay are charging anywhere between $18.00 to $70.00  Shocked  Easiest way to turn TAG into $$$ is sell them on Cryptsy for BTC and then sell the BTC to coinjar.io who will deposit $AUD into your bank account.

Yeah I need some risers too. I usually get the full 16x-16x ones, but I'll take 1x as long as it lets me hash. If anyone has a source on some, I'd like to know pricing for them in multiples of 12. Thanks.

Also Fuse, I'm interested in scrypt-asic myself. So if you get any word first let me know too. I'm on some mailing lists but havent heard anything lately.

Newegg.com has risers sold through another vendor

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA2C50US9991

Amazon has a ton if you're in the US, or your able to ship INTL.


AliExpress(alibaba sister site?) has 10 packs

Hadn't thought to check Ali. Amazon has some but the price has been nuts. Thanks for the Ali link.

Amazon has been getting sporadic shipments of the MSI R9 280x's today. It's been crazy. I put X number in the cart and within seconds before I can finish checkout, the quantity has dropped. I suppose this scrypt mining is catching on with lots of other people now lol.

Thanks, mate!

Something is wrong.  Block stats haven't updated for over 3 hours and pool stats say we haven't found a block in 3 1/2 hours which is impossible with our hashrate??  Block stats is stuck on 198 confirms to go on a block found over 3 hours ago.  In that time ~ 40 blocks have been found.

Did we find the blocks and the front end is not reporting or did we just lose 3 hours of hash-time?

Keep mining or take the miners off-line?

Not sure.  I'm guessing that the backend is still doing the voodoo that it does, but just in case, I'm mining some dogecoins just for fun till Fuse wakes up and fills us in.

I'm up... and I'm looking into it.

I've restarted the databases, and some of the block stats have started to populate.  I'll see why they all haven't.  Worst case scenario, I'll manually alter the tables with the info in the logs.  There was no lost mining, shares or payouts... just for some reason the front-end wasn't reading the back-end correctly.

I'll update as I find out more.

Update- Everything is back to normal.  I'm going to say a hiccup.

It's doing it again Fuse. 20 blocks mined by network since the last one found by us yet block stats showing 199 confirms to go.

We're still recording blocks and shares, but the front end isn't reading the back end properly.  I am looking at it right now.

The last 2 times it got stuck were both unusually long rounds.  Would that have anything to do with the glitch?

Ok here's the skinny on what was happening:

Bad news... the mysql slave server at some point lost connection to the master which threw it out of replication.  So the front-end knew that it had written block, share and payment data to the master database, but when it went to read the info from the slave it wasn't synced.  Thus the missing block confirms, finders, etc.

Good news... nothing was lost during this time, and the time earlier today.  All the data was properly written to the DB.  I was able to shut down the slave and kick the reads back over to the master without any downtime.  Also, I've been monitoring the resource usage on the master DB, and it looks good.  I think with the live data turned off, we'll be ok just running the master for now.  Looking back now, the upgraded server we had before probably would have been fine had I known about the live stats being the issue.  Either way though, we're still churning out blocks, and the pool is working properly now.

So crisis averted... again.

Grats, mate!

Now make sure you say that every time we have long rounds... we had 7 rounds that were 25% expected shares or less in a row.  You're like a mining round fortune teller.
