If the pool luck stats are accurate, they are pretty remarkable over the last month.

Approximate Pool Luck* (24H / 3D / 1W / 2W / 1M): 107.772% / 118.783% / 111.486% / 106.586% / 104.237%

The 1-month number is pretty nice due to December 15th and onward.  3 of the largest spikes in block solves (including BTC Guild getting 11 blocks in a row) all happened within the last month.  The 1-month number will probably start to drop pretty fast around mid-January unless we see a few really good days.

I think anyone who has spent some time as a miner with BTC Guild thoroughly appreciates the extremely high level of service and attention to detail that Eleuthria provides on an everyday basis and his efforts to blunt and quickly overcome the widespread DDoS attacks last year were quite simply outstanding.

This.

The great thing about the phone is that if there is an idiot on the line you just hang up but with a forum people can repeat themselves ad nauseum so I'd like to strongly encourage that the 'self moderated thread' be adopted immediately and this thread locked for read-only reference. Given the level of support that we receive as miners from Eleuthria, it's only right that we support him too, so I urge other BTCG miners to voice their support for this positive and liberating change.

Hear, hear!

This certainly specific to BTC Guild, but I'm just curious as to what folk are doing with their NMC mined by the pool? Specifically storage. AT the moment, mine are just building up on BTC Guild.

Cheers.

The majority of users just send them direct to an exchange like BTC-e.  Very few people bother running NMC wallets of their own.

I bitch and complain like a woman and can sound like an arrogant ass, but I've always stuck with this pool from the very beginning. Even got a couple of my friends to join in and they HATE paying fees. It still baffles me how Ghash can have so much hashing power. They must be doing something right, right? If they were screwing people around wouldn't their hash rate just drop out? From what I know I think whatever BTC you make there you have to use their sister site CEX.IO to cash out your bitcoin. Gets a little confusing. At least here, everything is off one system.

Now, a technical question for the pool operator. Is this pool on a VPS or dedicated box? Maybe uses Google services for email possibly? I'm just curious, that's all.

All the actual pool servers are colocated in locked cabinets.  The validation servers used to filter DDoS/botnet traffic are a mix:  EC2, OVH, and Cloudflare for HTTP traffic, none of which have any actual access into the backends to avoid the risk of insider attacks like what has happened to slush in the past (on Linode and OVH).  The validation servers have read-only access to the workers table, nothing more.  The pool uses Google for email so that emails can be received and answered during DDoS attacks, which are times when email availability is crucial.

The pool also does not make use of any frameworks for its web frontend, backend, or pool server code, with the obvious exception of some JavaScript for things like charts and paginated tables (all of which is done in post-processing, rather than actually interacting with the backend directly).

You'll never have proof of work per block because the pool does not track it since PPLNS has no need to care about individual block rounds.  No matter how much you bitch, it isn't going to happen because I'm not going to add an entirely new table to the database and extra scripts to try to guess how many shares went into an individual block just to track shit for you.

I am not so egocentric to expect you to "track shit" for me.
Are you so close-minded to think that I am the only person who would enjoy this feature?
Surprise yourself and check if your customers would approve of such an addition by running a poll on your website.

Btw are you running out of processing power on the servers to add such a table or is it more of a financial issue  Roll Eyes

Why would you assume they are inaccurate?

Are you sure about that? I mean, are you 100% positive?

More importantly, was CYPER 100% positive over the last 24H / 3D / 1W / 2W / 1M, or arbitary period ?

Can CYPER prove they were 100% positive?

CYPER, Please provide data, & a chart, & a picture of a kitten.

I would love to see this kitten, I bet it is magnificent.



I really don't see the point that is trying to be put across with all these posts. Honestly, I don't think there is a point. [deleted troll food]

Is anyone else having intermittent connection drops with Guild?  I'm mining here at the moment, and I'm seeing my miners switching to my backup pool quite often - they NEVER switch when my backup pool is the main pool.

Everything is looking fine on the pool end.  No restarts, no strange bandwidth/packet loss spikes.  I have noticed on my home connection that some websites (not all) have been extremely slow for me/requiring multiple refreshes, so it's possible there may be some problems with a major ISP/backbone router causing periods of packet loss for users that pass through them en route to their destination (pool servers).

Yeah, it's just I'm seeing my miners flipping to Eligius quite often when mining on BTCGuild as my primary pool, but when Eligius is primary it's solid as a rock and never flips to Eligius.  Huh

Last time it flipped was just over an hour ago, for about 10 minutes then flipped back again.  Same about 4 hours ago, and again around midnight UTC.

Two separate machines running BFGMiner on Failover - one machine has about 20GH running through it, the other about 70GH.

Sadly, I can definitely say that's a local issue if you're seeing it often.  The pools are running solid with many connections which have been active for days on end without interruption with each backend server.

Hitting routers is always a good start, the little suckers need it from time to time.  My new 802.11ac router actually has a setting (I think by default) where it will reboot on a weekly schedule just to clean house.

However, the reference to "local issue" in this sense isn't referring to your home network (though that is always a possibility), but just something between you and the pool servers is not happy.  Unfortunately (well, fortunately for the pool overall), the problem is definitely not in the pool servers or the datacenter, putting it outside of my ability to fix/tweak anything.

Damn you!  I thought the pool fees covered housecalls!

You went from 130-140% 24-hour luck to 80% 24-hour luck.
