regarding login procedure: is 2FA or CAPTCHA a thought which is worth to think about for security reasons?

thank you!

Captcha is just a pain in the ass for everybody, and there's no way to make it look good and fit with the interface the way the current login does.

2FA is something I've considered, but it's an extra layer I don't feel is needed.  If your email is locked, you're safe unless your email is compromised and used to compromise your BTC Guild account.  If your wallet is locked, you're safe even if your email and BTC Guild account are compromised.  2FA is a support nightmare when somebody loses/bricks/wipes their phone authenticator.  It's bad enough dealing with people who formatted their hard drive and lost their locked wallet, I'm sure phones are formatted/bricked/lost a hell of a lot more frequently than that.

2FA is something I've considered, but it's an extra layer I don't feel is needed.  If your email is locked, you're safe unless your email is compromised and used to compromise your BTC Guild account.  If your wallet is locked, you're safe even if your email and BTC Guild account are compromised.  2FA is a support nightmare when somebody loses/bricks/wipes their phone authenticator.  It's bad enough dealing with people who formatted their hard drive and lost their locked wallet, I'm sure phones are formatted/bricked/lost a hell of a lot more frequently than that.

thank you very much!

to prevent automated login attacks maybe the login procedure could be delayed if the username and password did not match 3 times. then it should not possible to login for a few seconds. and so on. just a thought.

IPs are banned outright when too many attempts are failed.  A new ban has also been added similarly for password reset attempts with even less tolerance for repeatedly trying to reset passwords on usernames that don't exist (fishing for valid usernames).

The store is now on hiatus waiting for next gen tech to become available.  I'll be focused on the API server all week.  If anybody here writes a publicly used program that polls the API, please toss me an email (webmaster@btcguild.com).  I'd love to get any API-polling apps updated, as well as get input from developers for what they'd like to see made available.

Looking into it, that's a really odd calculation error.

Edit:  All fixed.  DB server was a bit lagged running the hall of fame update script due to the API server currently working as a replication slave.  Looks like one of the speed scripts ran while the hall of fame was updating, causing it to get some awkward values for starting/ending share counts when calculating speed.  The pool speed piggybacks on the hall of fame calculations, so it  caused it to print out their weird negative number as overall pool speed.

prevents it from being changed.  that way if someone gets ahold of your BTCG account, they can't redirect coins to another address.

If you have an email on your BTC Guild account, changes to your account (wallet/email/password) will go to your registered email.  This means if you lock your email, nobody can change your password/wallet/email without also having access to your email.

If you lock your wallet, this means nobody can change the payout address, even if they have your email.  The only way to undo a wallet lock is to talk to me by email and then send a signed message using the private key of that wallet.  Since the ability to do this would mean they already control any payouts you would receive anyways, there is no risk in unlocking it after the signed message is verified.

think you are right, and stats might be off. My hash rate has increased slightly, but my contributed shares has decreased and I haven't noticed an increase in pool hashrate for a bit...so not sure but maybe pool hashrate is not updating???

Fixed the Rankings page.  After the pool updated to a negative value I changed a bit of the Hall of Fame updating code.  Looks like I made an error and it was just frozen instead.  This meant the pool speed at the top was also stuck since it uses the rankings page to get the hourly average.

I'm running 42 Block Erupters. They have a theoretical hashing rate of 13.96GH/s. In practice, I'm getting a little less than that, right around 13.8GH/s.

My question is, why do I get so much variance from hour to hour? I'll get a full shift at, say, 14.7GH/s, and turn in 0.00101% of the shift. Then I'll get a shift that's closer to 13.2GH/s for 0.00088% of the shift. This +/- 10-12% range has been consistent from the get-go, but why?

I'm not asking because I think there's something wrong with the pool, or even because I think this is pool-related—rather, what is it about the hashing and distribution process that results in such variance from hour to hour? Also, is it specific to this hardware, or do the larger rigs also see that sort of variance?

Thanks in advance.

Your contribution to the shift is based on your % of the pool, and a little bit of share variance.  +/- 5% isn't that uncommon over the course of an hour.  Over the course of a day it does average out.  Also, the pool has fluctuated about 7-8% in speed during the day.  We have a user at roughly 100 TH/s that has gone on and off more than once today, which would affect your contribution percentages.

Thanks, eleuthria. I was so fixated on the correlation of my higher reported hashing rate to higher shift percentage, I forgot about the effect that fluctuations in the size of the pool would have on the whole thing.
