do you guys have any advantages over triplemining?

BTC Guild is PPS, not SMPPS, not PPLNS.  You get paid whether we find blocks or not (thus the fee).  You get credited almost instantly (normally within 10 seconds of submitting a share), and can withdrawal as soon as you have > 0.1 BTC in your account.

We're also one of the oldest running pools, and stability has been excellent ever since the last server move a few months back.  The only times the pool has been down since February were when doing restarts to update pool software.

Thanks for replying so quickly and thank you for explaining your pool to me, seriously considering using your pool now

I cant request any BTC or Namecoin payouts anymore. I get the message:

A payout request is already being processed for your account (you may have clicked the link twice).

I waited a few blocks and still the same. Also the Unpaid Rewards counter did not jump back to zero, after i clicked request payout. Can you take a look at this, please. My username is br0ken

This should be fixed now.  Earlier today the hot wallet ran low due to some bad luck last week paired with a large spike in withdrawals due to the price increase.  A few automatic payouts were also stuck due to the problem.  Those missing automatic payouts should be processed in 20 minutes with the next batch.

Just posting a friendly reminder to users that are not in the US:  We do have a server based in Germany!  Simply point your miner to http://de.btcguild.com:8332 to use it!  It's not getting used nearly as much as the old EU servers, so I suspect quite a few of you aren't aware it exists Smiley.

Sorry about that, some MySQL vulnerabilities were released today and I was doing some testing to make sure BTC Guild was not vulnerable.  Allowances were made for the pool servers, so all shares were still being recorded during that time.

Does this also explain the weird blip I've just seen in my hash rate graphs over the last 24 hours? At about 1pm, June 11, for an hour or so, all three of my rigs apparently 'doubled' their hash rate! (Incidentally what IS the time that appears on those highcharts.com graphs? I'm in the UK, where it's now nearly 11am, and the last data points on the 24-hour graphs say 05:08)

If I've said anything amusing and/or informative and you're feeling generous:

Yes, that's why you saw the blip on your charts.  It's the same thing that happened a few weeks ago when there was a small DB connection problem between the webserver and the DB server.  Since the script to calculate your hash rate only executes once per hour (and doesn't have any sort of retry-on-fail), if it misses an hour, the following hour shows twice as many shares as normal.  Since the previous hour has -no data-, it doesn't show a drop to 0 followed by a jump to double, it simply shows a steady growth from 2 hours prior.

I received an email trying to extort some money with threat of DDoS this morning.  Website is temporarily offline, though the DB server is still running and mining servers aren't getting hit too hard.  You may have some packet loss, but shares are still going through fairly well.

Yeah, that's my guess.  The attack this morning was kind of fun compared to what pool operators got used to from last summer's attacks.

I am getting alot of Get & Send Work connection errors as of late using btcguild.com:8332 as my Primary pool.

In Western Canada, would it be better for me to use either mine2.btcguild.com:8332  ...or...  mine3.btcguild.com:8332  for my PRIMARY POOL instead ?

I normally use a setup like this in CGMiner, using BTCGuild mine2 and mine3 as backup pools to regular btcguild.com:8332 as my primary:

PRIMARY: btcguild.com:8332
POOL #2: mine3.btcguild.com:8332
POOL #3: mine3.btcguild.com:8332
POOL #4: Localhost/Solo Mining Server

POOL #3: mine3.btcguild.com:8332
POOL #4: Localhost/Solo Mining Server



mine2 and mine3 are ALWAYS recommended over mine1.  You go from a server with 2000+ LP connections active to only 500 when you switch to mine2/mine3 because too many people use default settings.  Were you just recently getting the errors?  The little DDoS'ers sent an email threat roughly the time you posted, so there may have been some packet loss if they even hit at all.

Still getting emails threatening that BTC Guild is going to be DDoS'd again.  Hopefully everybody mining here has at least another pool (or p2pool/local bitcoind) setup as a backup.  I would highly recommend all users have MULTIPLE backup pools configured in their mining software.  Additionally, make sure you have SMALLER pools in your backup list!  A large attacker could very easily put down the largest pools simultaneously.  The smaller the pool, the less likely they are to be targeted [though they are also probably easier targets if they do get targeted].

They hit me yesterday morning, took it down for like 3 minutes to show off they can take me down.  Since then I've just been getting a LOT of emails with different demands for cash through LibertyReserve.  They did another attack on the webserver yesterday for maybe 15 minutes?  I'm waiting to see what happens, since their latest emails used Deepbit as an "example" of what will happen if I don't pay up.
