i cant get mining proxy to work as well!    why are blades still set up to use the old mining protocol?    hopefully those cloud stratum proxies stay active.... otherwise i can't mine btcguild...



I'll have to try the cloud proxies tonight, do you have the link to the info?

So what you are saying is that what other pools or miners are doing, regardless of their hash rate or how many blocks they find, has no bearing on a specific pool's luck? even though everytime someone else finds a block you effectively have to start over? I have trouble wrapping my mind around that, but then, i did fail probability and statistics.  Tongue

Correct.  Nothing else on the network impacts your expected rate of block solving at a given difficulty.  The only minor impact is that when the network is going faster, the odds of an orphaned block are higher (higher block rate = more chance of two blocks at the same time), but those are still a very rare case, and on BTC Guild you're paid for orphans so they wouldn't show any reduction in luck.

I need to think on this. thanks for being patient with me.

It might help to remember that there is no "starting over" and no concept of "progress" towards finding a block.  Each hash attempted represents an independent attempt to find a solution, and the next hash you try is just as likely (or unlikely), based on the difficulty, to find a block as the last hash you tried.  I suppose you could say that when mining at 1GH/s, you are "starting over" 1 billion times per second Smiley

You see, now this doesn't make sense to me. When starting a block, I see it like a lottery. There are a finite number of possibilities to test. Granted it is a large number, but finite just the same. When you test one possibility and it fails, the number of possibilities available to the next test is one less. Until the block that you are working on is found, your odds against finding it would decrease. When the block is found, you are starting over in the sense that you have to create a new input to hash and go back to having that very large number of possibilities to work from. I'm told that this way of looking at it is wrong, and i accept that, it just doesn't make any sense to me.
The number of possible solutions is also very very large.  Granted, after each hundred trillion tries, the number of possibilities is a hundred trillion less, but, compared to the possibilities, it is an almost infinitely small difference. Every try is a major crap shoot.

can someone actually post the txt of a batch file to load bfgminer with the proper settings for a blade?

Just create a shortcut to bfgminer.exe with the following commands. Works perfect for me, but you will have issues if your USB hubs can't power all the blades. You might get an error that a comport is unreachable.

F:\PATHTOBFGMINER\bfgminer.exe -G -o http://stratum.btcguild.com:3333 -u USER -p PASS -S all --icarus-options 115200:1:1 --icarus-timing 3.0=100

Eleuthria, Any ideas/consideration about a pool jackpot per month/week? Maybe jackpot for some of those BE's?

I just want more BTCtc...

That sounds very interesting and plausible to me.  I hadn't considered it in those terms before.

However I think the reality is very different as I don't think anyone is keeping track of actual "progress" of the permutations that have been tried.

Edit: I believe time and date are part of the data being hashed.  So being that the solution is time traveling, is there really a finite number of possible solutions?

Edit 2:  Also the hash we are looking for isn't a static/specific one.  We are just looking for one that meets or exceeds the current difficulty.  So there could be an infinite number of solutions, or so it seems to me.

A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?

There's 2^256 possible hashes.  That number is much bigger than a human mind can actually comprehend.  There are a *LOT* of solutions.  There's also nothing to prevent a duplicate hash (other than the statistical near-impossibility), since hashing involves changing a single bit to get a completely different result hash.  There really is *nothing* that resembles progress when mining.  Every hash is independent.  This is why the rest of the network has no impact on your luck/variance (outside of influencing how quickly the next difficulty adjustment happens).

Oh, and work is updated every 30 seconds, meaning more transactions are included, different merkle root.  This means a whole new set of hash data even if you repeated the same time, nonce, and extranonce as before for some reason.

If you're interested in a backplane for ASICMINER Blades, I have four for sale.  They will be sold at 0.60 BTC base price (that includes shipping anywhere in the US).  They will also be discounted 0.05 BTC for each Blade you've bought from BTC Guild, if any (down to a minimum of 0.30 BTC).  Send me a PM or an email to webmaster@btcguild.com .  I'll respond in the morning to let you know if you were one of the first four to respond and provide an address for payment.  Make sure to include your BTC Guild username if you ordered any blades previously!

No matter which server I connect to, private, US Stratum, EU Stratum, I'm getting a wait signal for awhile with the following or similar message:

Code:
Pool 0 is issuing work for an old block: 00000000000000016d07c7afc2c901b4ca56418
acaf19171af4d6792d04b2e2e

And all my mining devices in BFGMiner are stuck with "WAIT" for awhile.  Eventually it gets going again, but this happened a few times already.  Tried restarting BFGMiner with different pool priorities (using the different servers) and I get "WAIT" everytime.

They're hashing away again, but just wanted you aware just in case something was going on.

Private servers have never gone down, it's a local issue if you're seeing them down.

Well, none of my units could connect to them earlier today. I will try again now and report back.

EDIT: now they are working, but they definitely got disconnected this 10 hours ago and then I couldn't reconnect to them... I switched to the public servers and they worked fine.

Did someone just add 100TH to BTCG?  Is that one entity or just a bunch of individual KNCers?

Still looking into that user account to make sure it's legit...but all signs point to yes so far.

100TH, that's good for your pool which is apparently taking over BTC and paying for all these DDoS and taking over forums and the likes.  Tongue

I don't think the shift length has dropped quite that much... more like 8 or 9 minutes.
