site is so slow ... anyone else have this issue ?

Site has been extremely fast here, there isn't even a slow period when scripts run anymore.  Sounds like you may have had a bad connection to the cloudflare server that you were directed at.

BtcGuild now auto-adjust minimum share difficulty regardless manual input? Huh

BTC Guild was the first pool to deploy variable difficulty, and if you do not adequately set your minimum difficulty, the pool will adjust it for you.  That is why the setting is labelled "MINIMUM difficulty".  BTC Guild uses a 20-40 Shares Per Minute range (it doubles your difficulty any time you hit 40 SPM for a 5 minute duration).

I "adequately" set minimum difficulty to reduce discarded shares. Maybe server needs more bandwidth? Huh You are after all pushing 300'000 GH atm.

Discarded shares are meaningless for stratum.  The statistic means absolutely nothing to you unless you're on getwork.  Just ignore it.

Higher difficulty means higher stales/discarded, how is that meaningless?

No, higher difficulty does not mean higher stales.  Stales are not the same as discarded work.  Discarded is a USELESS, 100% MEANINGLESS statistic when mining on Stratum.

I renamed a worker over 30 minutes ago, but the change still hasn't taken effect. I can only connect using the old name. I'm using the EU server.

EDIT: Funny, the rename finally took effect after I posted

Renaming workers is normally instant, unless you try to connect to the pool with the new name prior to the rename.  The pool caches a list of bad worker credentials so it doesn't bother connecting to the database to validate constant bad attempts.

I wonder. What is your total network usage in and out eleuthria on the servers? and or say the miner server?   

Also who in the HELL is mining 39,856.07 GH/s  Shocked

Yeah, average bandwidth is quite low.  The server has a large burst roughly ever 30 seconds [push out updated work], but it's so brief it barely impacts the overall average.  This also includes a total of 6 bitcoind nodes between the various servers.

Heh - that's not why they're used.   Where do you think the pool gets the work that it hands out to miners?

Each Stratum server has a local bitcoind to keep them from having a central point of failure.  Additionally there is a hot wallet for payouts that is separate from those and a store wallet.

I looked at the last few days of posts and didn't see anything on this, but I might've missed it, so I apologize if that's the case.

My friend and I have both noticed that E-Mail notifications for idle workers stopped functioning a few days ago.  We tried disabling and re-enabling the notifications, but that had no effect.  Anybody else experiencing this?

Thank you for that.  I forgot to re-enable idle miner scripts once all the time zone issues were fixed.

Each Stratum server has a local bitcoind to keep them from having a central point of failure.  Additionally there is a hot wallet for payouts that is separate from those and a store wallet.

So there is a chance that more than one of your servers might be working on the, how do i say this without having to look things up, working on the same input to the hashing algorithm?

Each server has a slightly different coinbase message, so there is no chance of duplicated work.

Coinbase being where you plug in a transaction with your bitcoind address to receive the 25 BTC if you solve the block, correct?   So basically each stratum server is functioning as a separate pool but solved blocks pay out to the entire group of miners working across all of the servers?
