BTW, OP's math is totally wrong
2473 * (1/3) + 2084 * (1/3) + 506 * (1/3)
Yes addition is very hard to grasp. If one card is participating in a 2473 GH/sec pool, another a 2084 GH/sec pool, and yet another a 506 GH/sec pool what is the total GH/sec of the pools the cards are participating in?

Total BS. You only have one third of cards in any of the pool. If you only care about the total, you should split your hasing power into every single pool (other than deepbit because you think it's evil) and your formula will generate even greater number.
Do whatever you want and I'm sticking with deepbit, so will the rest 5 terahash.

It cuts down the variance of payouts...if you're too dense to see that, go ahead and keep paying the fees at deepbit.

I personally am using deepbit now because of all the problems I had with other pools. I rarely have to worry about my miners idleing at deepbit, they can handle ddos's pretty well also. All in all I prefer the steady, reliable payout from deepbit compared to splitting my miners up between X pools. And I have 4 workers tapping into what 21.6 TH/s? (<Troll>lol the logic behind the OP's math is flawed to say the least</Troll>)

According to the logic suggested by the OP, I guess I should mine with 1/3 of my cards at deepbit, and the other 2/3 at deepbit as well, since then I'm somehow tapping into 5363 + 5363 + 5363 = 16,089 Ghps. Wait, no, I should mine with 1/10 of my cards at deepbit, and the other 9/10 at deepbit. Then I'm tapping into 10x5363 = 50,363 Ghps. Someone needs to rethink their maths.
I was missing the point here b/c it's just an attempt to get the low variance of deepbit without mining at deepbit. But I still think you have to be careful about simply adding up the hash rates of the pools you are mining and assuming you will have the variance of the sum. For instance, suppose I have 3 Ghps to mine with. I point 1 Gh at pool 1 with 2,500 Ghps, 1 Gh at pool 2 with 3,000 Ghps, and solo mine with the last Gh. It would be a mistake to think that I am then going to get the same variance as mining at a single pool with 2500 + 3000 +1 = 5501 Ghps, because I am going to be getting huge variance for 1/3 of my hashes. Similarly, I don't think you would want to point 1/3 of your hashes at a pool with only 500 Ghps, because you will still be getting fairly large variance for 1/3 of your hashing power.

I bounce between Deepbit and BTCGuild. The operators of both sites are great guys who are constantly improving their service. At Deepbit I see steady reliable payments that go straight to my wallet with no intervention. At BTCGuild I can make out a little better because of the lower hashrate (my share percentage is higher) and the variance isn't terrible because it still has the participation of serious miners. I basically discovered Deepbit when BTCGuild was dealing with the bot net a few weeks ago.

To tell you the truth why I only mine at Deepbit and hate BTCGuild or Slush, it's because I don't have a static IP. Why should I "add my ip to whitelist" before mining?

That's really odd because I've got good results with both using a dynamic IP I think you're mistaking the request for legit but botnet like miners to get their IP white listed in case they get banned for showing botnet like behaviour.

No! I don't understand the siginificance of the cumulative hashing power since you are mining with 1/3 of your total hashing power at each pool. I do see the point that this is a way to reduce variance, but even so, it is isn't clear to me that you are effectively getting the variance you would have with a pool at 5063 Ghps. Why? because 1/3 of your hashing power is aimed a pool with high variance since it is only about 500 Ghps. Again, suppose you aim 2/3 of your hashing power at two pools with 5000 Ghps combined, and 1/3 of your hashing power at really small pool with only 10 Ghps. Are you then effectively going to see the same variance you would if you aimed all your hashing power at a single pool with 5010 Ghps? No, because 1/3 of your hashing power is aimed a pool that will have very high variance, so your variance will be significantly higher than it would be if you aimed all your hashes at a single pool with 5010 Ghps. So even if you are just talking about variance, it isn't correct to just add up the hashing power of the three pools your are mining at, and say, "I'm only getting the variance of a pool with that combined hashing power." Maybe if you split your hashes between three pools each of which is at 2000 Ghps, you would effectively get the variance of a single pool with 6000 Ghps. That seems right, but when one of the pools is much smaller than the others and you are still pointing 1/3 of your hashes at it, things get more complicated.

Agreed, as I pointed out earlier, OP's math is flawed. BTW, I stopped trying because it's just a wasting time of trying to educating somebody who can't even figure out simple math LOL

Pennytrader thinks every BTC pool he connects to is inside his PC and gets
it's hash rate divided by his number of video cards.. nice. Your total payout
gets divided by the number of pools you are connected to nothing more. At
these difficulty levels trying to solve one block at a time, even pooled, is not
a good thing.

August 03, 2011, 07:05:09 AM 

Did you manually type line breakers? LOL Again, OP is proven to not be able to figure out or interpret any math. If you're fine with your strategy, that's OK. And I'm happy with my payout from deepbit and their service. And last point, many people mine at deepbit for many different reasons, not just the hash power like you said in your original post.

Wow... this thread has been a train wreck from the start. Here... let me help you guys out. A) OP doesn't know maths. plain and simple there... I think he means if you have 3 cards, shove them into three other pools as apposed to all three in Deepbit. We'll get to this more in a moment. B) My invalid @ slush's pool today. (7081 20110801 15:49:18 0:10:59 335449 0.03038722  invalid) *shrug* Oh well, if I really want to, I have some nvidia cards to fold on to make up the difference. C) Deepbit getting anywhere close to %50 of the bitcoin hashrate is bad for the entire network. Period. (see https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Weaknesses#Attacker_has_a_lot_of_computing_power.) D) Deepbit charges 3% fees, so you get the lowest possible payout from that pool, cause of the chunk of change they take from you. I've been in slush's pool since I started mining. Seems fine to me, even the latest DDoS was easily worked around... changing address was simple. No, they're the best pool, and in fact i'm looking at some 0% fee pools myself. Unfortunately, of the three largest, and nothing against the operator of Deepbit but, that pool is the one I LEAST want to be in.

....figure out or interpret any math. ..train wreck.. A) OP doesn't know maths. plain and simple there... I think he means if .. I meant exactly what I said in the original post if you participate in multiple pools you benefit from their total hashing powers. Why would you divide anything other than your rewards since your are getting paid out from multiple pools? The hashing power of the pool doesn't drop in half when you only connect with one card instead of two that is absolutely stupid thinking.
