At least hope he's alive and well. Eligius was my favorite pool back in the early days, before the "upgrade"

Also if I'm not mistaken, was the first mining pool ever?

Because the coinbase back then wasn't slush so btc.com isn't classifying those early blocks as from slush pool.

Last I read of wiz he was working on a bunch of tesla hardware experiments. (The cars - not the shocky bits. )
Would be nice to know if things calmed down at home.

So is, or isn't the pool still / ever going to be alive?
The domain is renewed (http://www.eligius.st/), but appears not to be configured for even a landing page.
It seems there's a dwindling few of us who even remember the pool exists (existed).
I trust LukeJr, if he says the word that it's alive...

At this point, I have no idea. Was considering dropping some of the domains... they do add up. :/

Could you at least point the DNS someplace else?Or just null them? The stratum ports are still active so people who have forgotten to change out their backup pool might still be wasting hashes / electricity mining here.

If the ports are still open, I assume it's working most likely. Maybe just not enough hashrate to find blocks?

Edited @ 7:20 PM 17-Aug-19
No idea what type of node it's talking to but it's not a synced BTC node:
 [2019-08-17 18:57:06.001] Pool 0 difficulty changed to 4095.9
 [2019-08-17 18:57:06.078] Network diff set to 5.65T   


Possibly, or it's talking to a node that is not properly synced, or it's been compromised in some way and mining who know what, etc.
Since WK has vanished, there are no front end stats, etc. I just figured that since you had control of the domains it would be a "good for the community" type thing to help prevent wasted mining. Since we don't know I would err on the side of caution.

But, also as I keep saying, we are not and this forum is not your mom. It's not the forums job to stop you from doing something stupid, like mining to a pool that may go nowhere.

Yeah... looks like it's stuck on block 0000000000000000001393b90b751003c03df800d732059fa7c7e2d7272058e2 (2018 December 15th)

Poked wizkid057. If he doesn't respond, maybe I'll point the DNS somewhere without a pool server running. :/

It's been 10 days or so any word?

I hate to say point it elsehwere, since it was good here for a very long time. But it might be time.
His last post was ~18 months ago, his last time online was ~ 9 months ago.
It's accepting shares but the back end is dead so it's just a black hole for mining at this point.

On a personal note, I worry about what happened to him. But, since no friends / family have posted anything anywhere that I could find there is not much we can do.

There is ~ BTC0.415 sitting in the pool address that has not been touched since the end of Nov 2017 so it's not like he ran off with the money.

He's alive. I'm not comfortable giving the details of his personal life, though, so I'll have to just leave it at that.

He did say he'd make a forum post soon... I'll remind him again.

Agreed. Point it at p2pool or something, right now whatever is mining there is just wasting energy and that's plain sad. I liked Eligius, it was my first pool, but if nothing else is going to happen it's really time to call it quits.

And hey if WK fixes it, just point it back.

Remind him, that his work and upkeep on the pool was appreciated and I'm sure there are people here willing to give him a hand if he needs anything.
