A whole bunch of orders just got picked up by USPS, over 100 if I counted correctly.  Check your Order Status to get tracking information.  If you see weird tracking information, check the date.  If it's 2012, it's due to USPS recycling tracking numbers.  Apparently something went wrong in October and a bunch of tracking information wasn't deleted before the number was recycled.  It should get corrected the next time it is scanned in by the post office.

it's due to USPS recycling tracking numbers.

Why is it everyone in the world can have multiple bitcoin addresses without recycling them but the post office has to recycle a number that is about the same length every year?

A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
A: Top-posting.
Q: What is the most annoying thing on usenet and in e-mail?

The ISP for US based Stratum had a few hiccups earlier (packet loss).  Everything seems to be back to normal now.  Logs aren't showing any signs of hostile activity, so right now I'm blaming it on the DC.

Work is still being done to relocate all the US based servers to a DC that has historically had 100% uptime for the pool in the past.  More information on that hopefully next week.

I have been seeing this error intermittently since some time just after 09:55 PDT on 7/17:

504 Gateway Time-out

cloudflare-nginx



It is affecting access to the web interface and API stats.

Could this be collateral damage from the Network Solutions DDOS?

50Ths Pool??  Would anyone had thunk it a couple years ago?

Funny enough, I learned about Bitcoin from the Security Now podcast.  While testing chips I was going crazy, so I've been listening to podcasts and audio books.  For fun yesterday, I turned on the old Security Now podcast that goes over Bitcoin.  Steve mentioned in the video (sounding quite amazed) that the network speed was estimated to be 186 GIGA hashes per second at the time.  Amazing how far it's come in 2 and a half years.  Each of the top 50 users of the pool are now faster than the entire network was back then.

Funny enough so did I, and that's when i started mining with my old old 5670 and within a week or two solved 2 blocks less in a week part Smiley)

Eleuthria, I've accumulated enough Bitcoin for another Erupter, but I'm thinking that it is unfair to you to order these at the rate of one a week. Also, a lot more expensive for shipping. If we have several open orders of 1 ea. would you consolidate them to make your life easier? or should we order less frequently to make things easier for you? What are your thoughts on this? On one hand i want to get them mining as quick as i can so i have more coin to buy more. But on the other hand, this must be a pain in the ass for you. Surely you have better things to do with your time.

It's really not a big problem.  Yesterday I pushed out every on-hand unit that was ready to ship.  Next batch arrives today, and on Monday I expect to ship out every backordered unit with a little leftover to finally get into a 24-hour turn around (exception being I will probably run out before my next batch arrives, but for at least a day I should be ahead of the orders).

Shipping individually does generate the least profit, but it's still profitable and worth the time to do it.  No need to feel bad Tongue.



Update related to the top post on the page:

New colocation plans are getting finalized, equipment being ordered.  Hopefully by the end of the month, US Stratum servers will be relocated to a better datacenter without packet loss "hiccups" like what we saw the other day, and some extra work done to harden the connection against attacks with upstream filtering.  The current servers will stay online for a few weeks to allow DNS to update and people to reconnect to the new servers.

eleuthria, I'm having a problem with setting up a namecoin wallet, it just does not work. May I set the namecoins to be deposited into an account at a exchange?

My NMC go to my BTC-E wallet.  Seems to have accepted the address OK, so don't see why it wouldn't work.  BTC-E doesn't change the deposit addresses.

Great, That sounds like a plan  Grin but I have namecoins sent to my address that I cannot receive and BTC-E just gave me a different address then the one I have. So what to do with the namecoins sent to my address?

Just thought I would mention that eu-stratum.btcguild.com:3333 has just stopped counting shares from me, switched to the non eu server (stratum.btcguild.com:3333) and shares are being counted again. Not sure if its a bug or maintenance but thought i should say something in case others are also affected.

Pool speed also dropped...

I'm still going over what just happened.  This has happened one other time with EU servers, and its related to losing connection to the database server.  However, this SHOULD have marked the server as dead for miners!  When this happened on the US servers (attack), within about a minute miners marked the pool as dead.  But on EU, for some reason the pool is continuing to respond to miners when it shouldn't be.

The servers were rebooted and are working normally again.  I am going to work on a temporary workaround (auto server restart on MySQL failure) tonight.  Better to have the server go offline and restart than end up losing 30 minutes worth of work.

Yes, EU is safe to mine on again.

Using btc-e wallet works perfectly well.

If you've sent some NMC to a locally generated address that you cannot use,
then there's a few options:
  - seek help in an NMC forum for getting your local NMC client to work.
  - just forget about it. (1 NMC is currently worth less than 50 ($-)cents, so
       it might not even be worth bothering.)
  - make a backup of your local NMC-wallet to eventually get back to it, once
       NMC value rises enough to be worth the time to deal with it.

PS: I generated a NMC address from the priv-key of one of my BTC-addresses
   and sent the first mined 0.42 NMC there. I don't have a NMC client installed
   at all, so these 0.42 NMC will rest for some indefinite time - maybe forever Wink
   Eventually I might install an NMC client, or find out how to create, sign and
   submit an NMC transaction on my own...
