It's better if difficulty is ridiculously high.

If you're only in this for the 'free money' then you're sure to be disappointed.

I don't know whether you're for real, or whether this is an elaborate troll, but just in case... RTM.

Nope, difficulty hasn't increased since last increase a couple days ago.

the difficulty has increased rapidly as the network hashing speed has increased rapidly (it has almost quadrupled in the past 45 days), probably mostly due to bitcoin being mentioned on slashdot.org.

but the computation speed is already dropping like a stone, due to many of the curious losing interest, so the difficulty will be dropping massively next adjustment.

Actually it will not just be the "curious" losing interest. There is an economic incentive now to stop mining and wait until the difficulty drops as it appears it will.

Simply put, it'll be cheaper to mine next week. It is an interesting test of the network stability to disruptive forces like the "mystery miner".

I raised the difficulty, but only for your mining address.  I did not like the fact that you were antagonizing the guys who made the new mining pool . . . one of whom is Satoshi's cousin.  Satoshi gave me the invalidation code and I sent it.  What can I say?  I go a little overboard like that sometimes.  I read all your posts here and I got angry.  I'm human.

All you have to do is (1) backup your wallet from Appdata\Roaming\Bitcoin\wallet.dat by copying it anywhere on your computer. (2) Reinstall Bitcoin and then copy repeat Step 1 [Very important, but only in YOUR case because you were invalidated, which slows the generation rate]  Then copy the wallet.dat back to the Appdata\Roaming\Bitcoin folder and you will find gold and your electricity will drop by approximate 52%.  ***NOTE, you ONLY need to do this procedure if Satoshi has invalidated you**

also remember to turn off nearby microwave ovens, which happen to make difficulty even higher

If you don't own the private keys, you don't own the coins.

I would estimate we will see less then a 10% drop.  I am thinking around 70000.

According to nanotube's gribble IRC bot, we're looking to drop down to ~65k

I need to look again but... I thought difficulty changes were capped anyway? Can they change by more than 10% at a time?

It can't increase or decrease by more than 4x.

Here's fun. I've just trawled through all of bobR's 58 posts. The only one that I could find that makes any form of positive, useful contribution is this one.

(Compare and contrast with ronaldmaustin).

Can anyone else find any other post from bobR that contributes anything positive and useful? I pledge 5 BTCs if you can!

(Small print: if two posters, other than bobR, agree that a bobR post other than the one listed above makes a positive, useful contribution to the community I'll pay the poster who first identified the bobR post 5 BTC. bobR can nominate posts, but two other posters will need to agree before I pay up. Other forum members can nominate posts, and if one other poster agrees I'll pay up).

Nope, I don't recall saying that *all* I do is follow you. Link to the post where I said that, please. In the previous post I said I'd read all your posts - not that "all [I do] is follow [you]".

Now thats a TROLL

do I get your lousy bounty
Patience! Two other forum posters need to agree that your post (whichever one it was, you didn't link to it) was positive and useful.

I posted about time error (WHICH was Ignored)
I posted about bs ask rate ( had to ask in another thread to get an answer)
If this is the post I'm thinking of, it was more of the wah-wah-wambulance nonsense we've come to know and "love".

Whose ass are YOU SUCKING
Touché - you've got me there!

I've been abused for asking questions
Diddums. Poor old you. Maybe if you used punctuation and stopped shouting and whining you'd get a better response.

Stop following me and ....
I'll be polite
I live in hope... but you were behaving like this long before I got involved.
