Eventually a botnet or two was bound to connect, see how poorly CPU mining pays, and disconnect.  Smiley

If it were a lab w/ 14,000 X 5 Mhash/s intel cpus even, that would be 70 Ghash/s. The linear chart shows a moderate impact to the network hashing total.

There is a 150ghash supercluster that keeps attaching and de attaching from the network. Is someone renting a supercomputer ?

Why does the number of nodes drop off to zero?  It's nearly zero at the end of your snapshot, then goes to zero around noon.

There are probably network admin who use bitcoin for benchmarking, or idle time.  Bitcoin is ideal for Condor in a commercial network environment.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

Fortunately, it was a false alarm.  There was a node spewing address spam.  The author of the chart has revised the data reporting, and the chart now looks like:



Because the list of "down" nodes is so easily spoofed, a better metric is simply the nodes that are active:
