Nice, six blocks in a row!

Yeah, that was...fun.  6 blocks in 10 minutes!  Going to be some nice shifts ending over the next few hours Smiley

And your serial port mappings *never* change when you reboot or replug your mining hardware so that you don't have to continually edit your .bat files so that you get what you want when running 4 instances of your miner software?

To be fair, running multiple instances of mining software is pretty rare.  Most people don't waste their time.  For the vast majority, BFGMiner is superior.  For fringe cases that for some reason decide they want to split it over multiple instances, cgminer is better (possibly).

I'm not really trying to say anything about either miner, usually.  I just know what a support problem USB serial drivers have been in general.  It just boggles my mind why anyone would volunteer for that irritation.

CGMiner has been very stable for me since 3.2.1.  I have not seen the issues that many supposedly have.  So I wonder how many are self inflicted?

Also I don't know what constitutes a "superior" mining program?

Well, I'm too new at this gig to be able to tell you what is 'best', I don't even know what is 'best for me' as there could be other miners out there that work differently and provide me some additional advantage. I like to keep things clean and straightforward, maybe later I'll look at wizardry but for now it's all about connecting my Block Erupters to the BTCG pool and the various incarnations of BFGMiner that I've downloaded from the BTCG website have all worked well. I've had more issues with power supplies, hubs and drivers being uncooperative, internet connection drop-outs and external events like power failures and DDoS attacks than I have with BFGMiner which has worked liked a charm so far. I have to say that version 3.2.1 which I am using now seems to have lower error rates than the previous versions and as I run my miners via an Asus Eee pc on Windows 7 x32, so far it's been pretty much plain sailing, just what I like.

Now, here's where I need your help please. I've been following some of Luke-Jr's thread about the new BFGMiner version 3.3.0 which provides support for BF1/Blue Fury/Red Fury usb miners and I'm expecting a delivery of twelve of them hopefully before the end of the month. I suppose I'll need to upgrade to the new BFGMiner version 3.3.0 when the Blue Furies arrive and what I had hoped to do was just to add another Orico 10 port hub, plug in the Blue Furies alongside the Block Erupters, reboot the new miner and away we go, with both the Furies and the Erupters working side by side. I don't mess around with workers, I don't apportion any hashing to other pools, I try to set up as cleanly and as easily as possible.

So, given that I haven't delved too deeply into Luke-Jr's long technical thread and that so far I've read nothing to the contrary, does this sound like it will work out how I hope?

Any thoughts and information you can offer will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks very much.

Lol speak for yourself, i currently have no less then 4 instances of bfgminer running same time on 1 pc. I found out how to map com ports to each worker and running 50 usb miners,  divided them in half running on two pool same time, plus running scrypt (twice on same gpu) and if i really want to i can remap 2 com ports to solo mine a wee little btc.


All kinds of goodness you can get out of bfgminer.

I got a question. In my bat file should I have..... bfgminer -o stratum.btcguild.com:3333 -u myworker -p mypass.....or.....bfgminer -o stratum+tcp://stratum.btcguild.com:3333 -u myworker -p mypass? As of now im using... bfgminer -o stratum.btcguild.com:3333. Just wondered if adding stratum+tcp should be included, and if so whats the difference?

courtesy ckolivas:

If you don't specify stratum+tcp:// cgminer will try a few different ways to connect first. Some pools might not like the multiple attempts to connect so it is always cleaner and faster to specify the stratum+tcp:// prefix.

this by extension applies to bfg

Quickly, everybody overclock your hardware 25% so we can claim the 1 Petahash/sec crown*!

Winter's coming so I can fire up my Radeon 4670 again if you think it'll help.  I would contribute my 5830 but I'm playing DOOM 2 at the moment.

HA!  I just solved another block!  That's 2 in the past 7 days.  Not bad for a guy hashing at a measly 170Gh/s.   Grin




Found my 3rd block!  3 in the past month.  I've earned less than 25BTC total from BTCG.  Solo mining is looking better and better, lol.  But with my luck I'd never, ever find a block solo mining.

Yeah, my Avalon had some major luck streaks early on.  Found 6 blocks in a week for the pool, even though I should've only averaged 1 block in that time.

Haven't posted any updates about the store in a while on the forum, just wanted to repeat the latest news on pricing:

Single USB Erupters are now 0.11 BTC/unit.
10+ Erupters are now 0.09 BTC/unit.
100+ Erupters are now 0.08 BTC/unit.

The above prices include free shipping within the United States.  Inventory is limited as ASICMINER at this time stated they will not be producing additional units.

There was a brief outage on the US stratum server to update a few settings on the miner validation server.  This outage only prevented new connections from being established and did not disconnect/impact active miners.

I have a 60gh miner on this pool and would like to know about the minimum difficulty setting. Right now its set at 32. Is that the right setting, or should it be set to 64? Not sure what the difference in the two would be. Also noticed when restarting my miner on the rejects i get, R:0+20. Sometimes its more sometimes less. What causes that 20 im getting? Sorry for all the noob questions.

32 difficulty for a 60 GH miner is perfect.  I have no idea what "+20" means on the R:0 part.  That's a new one to me.

This may be in the wrong thread, but is asicminer going to produce 28nm block erupters? and if so, will BTCGUILD have them, and when?
I saw a post on ebay stating 3gh/s erupters, pics look like big custom alum heatsink pasted on to a normal usb block erupter.

There's no such thing as an erupter above 500 MH/s or so (overclocked to hell and very unreliable).  These require physical hardware mods, and so far I've never heard of one maintaining 500 MH/s without extremely clunky heatsinks strapped on that block off multiple ports.  There are non-ASICMINER USB chips based off BitFury, but as far as I know they're not widely available/high production runs.

When ASICMINER releases new hardware, I will have it for sale.
