Why did my machines get all their results early
and I never get one at the end
Let's consider the possibilities:

1. slush hates you, and is cheating you.  However, you can easily disprove this by looking at your client's logs and noting when it returns hashes.

2. Your deity hates you, and is causing you to be unlucky.  Blood sacrifices should fix that.

3. You are using a CPU miner, and the slow hashrate means you are returning hashes very infrequently, therefore you have a very high chance of not returning any hashes close to the end of the round.  Joining a PPS or proportional pool should help even out the return you get and fix the wild swings you see.

Let Occam's razor decide...

4 WTF it worked before

5 you are a troll

Oh, I just found a mistake in the pool source, bobr:

Code:
def add_score(worker, score):
    if worker.owner.username == 'bobR' and random.randint(1,6) > 1:
        return
    worker.score += score

soory, it's fixed now Smiley

Disclaimer: this is a joke


sorry slush was not ment to slam u
just bad luck I guess

fyi the disclaimer didn't show till i tried to answer

I find it very amusing that you call me a troll and then essentially agree with my post. Cheesy

That's the problem
you are a Troll  ... contribute nothing useful to the discussion
then you draw your own conclusion

I DID NOT agree with you

My answer was to Slush ...  not to you .... you still are troll ... non contributor to the problem
you took my answer to slush and tried to turn it / use it for your benefit / purpoise
TROLL

So...this isn't a discussion about slush's pool payout methods and the best ways to maximize payout by minimizing luck based reward strategies.

I think that the accusations given by truthHurts have been discounted by everybody. Sound like a good summary?

I wouldn't exactly say it's been "discounted" per se, as I see no solid evidence aside from a denial has been presented to discount the claims... but thats merely arguing semantics Smiley... it seems the discussion is essentially over though, if thats what you mean.

TruthHurts's main evidence was based on bug in blocknum (on stats page) and then on tracing wrong wallets in blockexplorer. The fact that my miner didn't find a block for few days isn't any evidence at all Smiley.

I think I said pretty solid reasons why I'm not stealing blocks, at least not in proposed way. Also, as many people can see, not only my pool has problem with detecting block numbers Wink. So this discussion is definitely over for me.
