6..... you need that many wallets?

I guess so to keep up with all that money you making!   Cool

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.

Oh, cool. you Pool Operaters got it all down pat. I'm just curious about how things work and have always had a tendency to look for things that can go wrong in the name of preventing them from happening. Murphy and i go way back. Smiley

Coinbase being where you plug in a transaction with your bitcoind address to receive the 25 BTC if you solve the block, correct?  

When you make your own block, the transaction which pays yourself the coins is a transaction without an input.  Part of that input space is used to create what is called the "coinbase" for the block.  It includes the current block number, and is also where things like ExtraNonce go (part of how Stratum works is letting miners adjust part of the ExtraNonce).  On BTC Guild's blocks, the coinbase also includes "Mined by BTC Guild" in the message (it's in hex, but sites like blockchain will show you the converted message).  The coinbase is also where merged mining information is added, which is why you can externally audit if a pool is merged mining.

In the case of BTC Guild, one of the components of the coinbase message is a unique 2-digit server ID.  This makes it impossible for two servers to ever end up generating the same work.  It's a precaution, though it's EXTREMELY unlikely to ever happen even without the unique ID (there's a lot of pieces that would need to randomly end up identical).

Hi kslavik,
  Looks like your email got buried among the flood of false alarm emails from the database migration.  I've sent a reply just now.

Ive been actually wondering about that. What is the warrenty(or is there one) on the erupters. And I do remember on who I have gotten them from but I don't remember on what piticular ones i've gotten from who. So how does that work for extange IF there is a warrenty?

There's a limited warranty, and you are supposed to contact the reseller.  Resellers are provided with replacement units in advance from ASICMINER in order to facilitate returns of dead units.  ASICMINER claims 6 months for the warranty, but that will probably expire once they release the next gen chips and stop producing old ones.  BTC Guild is pretty painless for returns.

This morning I found all workers using the stratum proxy stopped mining!  Anything using bfgminer and cgminer were fine.

This isn't just at my home but at other locations, too.  Did something happen server side?

Edit: I found that I had 0 Shares for 2 rounds so maybe all were effected after all.

Put something in my tip jar if I made your day. Smiley

I'm running a Bitfury miner with a stratum proxy (on the EU pool), and there haven't been any interruptions.

USB Block Erupters are currently sold out.  A large order for new inventory was placed early this week which I'm hoping will arrive today (but I don't have a tracking #).

And what do you know, inventory showed up without the pre-notice from DHL.  Working to get the entire backlog filled before pickup today.  New coupons will be available after today's pickup.

It's hopeless.
Nothing hopeless if you keep trying.  Cool

I wish I could meet whomever is hashing away at what is now 45,764.12 GH/s... Makes me wonder if its a company testing miners? Because that number jumped over 10,000 GH/s in the last 2 days.

With that much power couldn't you just solo mine?

You can, yes.  But if they had been solo mining they would've made ~30% less than what they've made with BTC Guild so far [assuming their luck would've been the same as what they've had with Guild so far].   This morning they were at ~110m submitted shares per solved block.  Looks like they're a little closer to 100m now, but still quite unlucky.  I'm comparing this to neutral luck, because BTC Guild has been *roughly* neutral (+/- 2%) for the last 3 weeks.

Obviously these numbers could be completely different solo mining (since the data being hashed wouldn't have been the same), but it's a good idea of just how much variance even a 45 TH/s miner has.  They're only ~6% of the overall network.
