I see some are having DNS problems and others recommending Googles DNS. I would like to recommend, to those on a Windows system, to give DNS benchmark a try by Steve Gibson http://www.grc.com/dns/benchmark.htm. Using this tool you can find the best DNS server for your connection.

Quote from page
  "The point made above about the suitability — to you — of candidate nameservers is a crucial one, since everything is about where you are located relative to the nameservers being tested. You might see someone talking about how fast some specific DNS nameservers are for them, but unless you share their location there's absolutely no guarantee that the same nameservers would perform as well for you. ONLY by benchmarking DNS resolvers from your own location, as this DNS Benchmark does, can you compare nameserver performance where it matters . . . right where you're computer is."

Mr. Gibson's knowledge of networks has been a great help to me for many years. I hope he can help you, if you are in the need, as well.

By the way he is a Bitcoin solo miner and has done a very nice netcast about Bitcoin http://www.grc.com/sn/sn-287.htm

Cheers

Today I got no stales...
Is that normal? I mean, in the last few weeks I got about 1% stales, it should be about 4-5 today.
I'll report next day again, if I get no stales.

No, it's another problem.
Those DNS-servers don't respect TTL field and still point to an old IP when it should be new already.

I'd suggest sticking with local servers found by http://code.google.com/p/namebench/

Is there script/software out there to let me know that my worker has stopped working from the API token?

For Windows based mining rigs it's good to use apps such as FastCache or similar and setup them to renew locally stored ips<->domains on every 24 hours. This should be enough to make the mining more reliable cause for example Google DNS servers don't provide 99.9999% online service.

Running a script and a daemon that do this on some distro is good decision too...

Manually restricting refresh to 24 hours will make things much worse, don't do that.

DNS record for deepbit can be updated automatically to move miners from one server to another.

Refresh in 24 hours for 4-5 addresses shouldn't be a problem. Problem is when the majority of low-cost ISPs have crappy DNS service and maintenance ...

One thing I noticed, when using Pay-per-share, the history column will not tell me how much BTC I made in the last 24 hours. Can a counter be added there, something that keeps count of how many shares I completed in the last 24h?

Yeah, ive been meaning to, but that would mean a restart and a restart is a PITA right now even though an SSD makes it boot faster.


gotta start up. login. open realtemp, msi AB, gui miner, change a few settignfs here and there. blargh.

doesnt sound too bad now that i think about it.

So google's dns is recommended?

A Windows machine shouldn't require a reboot when changing network settings, but 2K/XP does (Vista and 7 do as well if you change work group or domain name, but not if you make DNS changes ... and for me, I just do it on my router anyway, so it is transparent to all networked devices).

As far as the rest, put shortcuts to them in your start up folder.  Afterburner can be configured to start with windows as can your bitcoin client.  At least with deepbit.net, you don't loose a ton of "work" if you are forced to reboot towards the end of a long round [the score based servers really ding you for that ... I changed my mind and prefer proportional Smiley].

Difficulty is increasing ... although maybe this correction and the lack of fund pouring in will slow this down some.

Not at all, but consider working in a small pool or solo mining and the variance can kill you if you expect consistent payout ... especially with the difficulty rising so fast.

Sure, but my hope is that with recent events it will not rise or not rise much for a change.  Even better would be a drop; but I think there is a latency period where people are still bringing new hardware online in spite of the market correction and Paypal cut off.

... or just write down the current btc amount I have every 24h. Yeah, I'm doing it now, but it would be more user friendly to have a counter.

Technical question, the smallest unit processable by a bitcoin client is a block is it not? What then comprises a share? Or is it a matter of blocks somehow being further divisible?
