Is there a chance that difficulty goes to oblivion or beyond on the next retarget and we get stuck there for some time ?
What is the point of having 2 coin weeks retarget ( or one week as originally intended) instead of a much lower retarget time ?
Just asking, not arguing.

It was my mistake that it was set to 2 weeks rather than 1 week. The 1 week difficultly was a parameter chosen by ByteMaster and he might be able fill in some more details about this choice later - I suspect he's asleep at the moment.

I think there will be fewer miners when the difficulty adjusts, but I doubt we'll fall off a cliff. There's probably 2x as much hash power than is reflected in the block chain already, because of the stale and orphan blocks.

Mined 2 blocks, and the price is around 0.01 BTC/ PTC - which means I have a BTC!! woot Smiley

Firstly try to sell them  Undecided.
Everybody wants to sell PTS, but nobody wants to buy. It seems that price 0.01 BTC per PTS is overvalued.

Indeed, where did you pluck this price from?

You are right. I saw in one thread that some trades went at that price so I got excited.

Maybe the price will pick up after the difficulty adjust, or people will just dump and collapse the price.

I ran the client like 15 minutes ago, and it still can't connect to the network.
I'm working on Windows 7, enabled all the firewall exceptions it asked me to, and have never had similar problems with bitcoin-qt / litecoin-qt etc.

I'm just seeing zero peers.

Same problem here. Any fix available? I already added all the nodes. Still nothing

These are my current connected peers. See if you can connect to these.

Yep: Set the time zone of your pc at UTC -8.00 (pacific coast)
After that, if nothing happen, try to manually add some nodes:

Quote
The client should connect to the network automatically but if you have trouble connecting, try opening the debug window console and type these commands,
addnode 162.243.67.4 add
addnode 162.243.54.126 add
addnode 37.139.29.236 add
addnode 64.90.183.137 add
addnode 180.183.205.118 add

My system has a lot of memory (48GB), is there modifications to the code that I could make to use more memory that will increase my block rate? A quick glance at the code indicates that maybe the following variables are important. But unfortunatly there are no code comments, so I can't tell what they are for.

Code:
#define MAX_MOMENTUM_NONCE  (1<<26)
#define SEARCH_SPACE_BITS 50
#define BIRTHDAYS_PER_HASH 8

ProtoShares



ProtoShares uses a new Momentum Proof of Work (POW) algorithm that is designed to be GPU and ASIC resistant.
http://invictus-innovations.com/s/MomentumProofOfWork.pdf

There's a $5000 bounty for anyone who can prove it is vulnerable to GPUs or ASICs.
http://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=22.0
I am awaiting a reply from Daniel (bytemaster) before I describe how I believe GPUs can be programmed to run much faster than CPUs:

http://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=22.msg597#msg597

It is possible I am incorrect or have misunderstood some aspect of the algorithm, so let's not jump to conclusions yet.
