it seems there is not a lot going on about p2pool in the newbies section
but since this forum's policy forces me in this board
I'll just start and post as if was posting to [8Gh/s] p2pool ...
When I started contributing the hash rate was around 3.5+ GH/s.
If I did the calculation right ... that woud result in about one hit every month
or so, at the current difficulty level. Fair enough.
Hash rate is now down to 0.8 GH/s
Did i miss something?
Imaho: A decentralized minig pool is the only way to mine.
I am using the most recent P2Pool and CgMiner, running a somewhat
outdated nvidia 9800 GTX card
There seem to be some problems.
I get a crash about every 24 h. That crash seems to also kill the BitCoin
program. There might be a connection with my computer getting an new

If I stop and restart P2Pool it seems to have forgotten about all my aquired
shares. Counting shares starts at 0 again.
But then again, the estimated payout stays the same, so I think that might
And than, there is that matter with the stale rate. I get about 30 to 50 %.
Well now it's at nearly 100%. That does not produce a warm fuzzy feeling.
I'll restart the miner and give it a new user name, maybe that will help.
Maybe there is a way to foreward this to the p2pool board?
