Hey Eleu, any idea when you might be able to do something about renaming workers to where it doesn't really "apply" unless the pools reset.

I renamed a couple of workers and the one running work I have right now is running on a "name" it's not supposed to be.

I guess ATM all I can hope for is an unexpected pool reset like when you removed the PPS stuff.

This will be resolved the next time the stratum servers are restarted.  Unfortunately, right now it's not a high priority since this problem only happens when people rename workers to a previously used name...which really doesn't happen often.  If it really bugs you...name them something you haven't used before, and the problem will go away.

If there is a reason to restart the stratum servers, the issue will be gone.  Otherwise they won't be restarted until something else comes along that warrants restarting them.
Not really a OMG I'm gonna throw a fit bother but minor annoyance.

The renaming was more about having them in a specific order, I guess I could say alphabetically even though there's like 1 out of place ein that scenario.

I do recall you at one point talking about trying to "patch" that when you have a bit of free time or something heh.

Well, the patch is *done*, and compiled.  The problem is that patch can only be deployed by restarting the server process, which I do not do often due to some miners not handling disconnects gracefully.  Since this really is a cosmetic issue more than anything, caused by a non-standard renaming case, it's not something that warrants restarting the server process on its own.

It looks like bfgminer is going to support SSL/TLS stratum soon, so I'm going to start working on an SSL/TLS implementation for the pool server.  That change will be large enough to warrant restarting the servers.

HTTPS stratum?

This luck is a killer.

Nobody felt like pointing it out when 1D/3D/1W were over 100% last week Sad.  Think it was on the 24th that all 3 were > 100%, which we haven't seen in a while.  Still not enough to make up for the bad.

I noticed and considered posting, but my superstitious side said "Don't! You'll jinx it."

It seems, BTW, that the new graphing format makes the trends look starker by reducing the number of spikes in either direction. That's an observation, not a complaint. Improved responsiveness for mobile users is a Good Thing™. I look forward to seeing a positive luck streak not dip below the neutral line, too. If we're lucky (badaboom!), it will be a multi-day 125% luck streak to balance out this stomach puncher we're enduring right now.

Edit: And yay for crossing the 9 PH/s mark. it's good to gain a little share back.

Yes, the new system is 3 months of luck, but each data point is the combination of 3 shifts.  It does smooth out the graph, in the same way our high 'N' value on PPLNS smooths out per block luck you would see on Prop/Score/DGM (you'll never see a shift at 300-2000% luck, and you'll likely never see one at 1-10% luck either).

What are the current plans for supporting BIP32 hierarchical deterministic wallets? With all the snooping of the blockchain going on this would be a good thing to have (in regards to payout).

Sometimes I feel like Bitcoin's hashing/difficulty algorithm is actually a cruel joke.  256 minute block -> 325 minute block -> 9 minute -> 14 minute -> 13 minute -> 3 minute.

2 blocks took 9 hours followed by the pool getting 5 of the last 6 on the entire network.

It is a pain to see the pool 3M luck at 92.463% Sad

maybe the cruel joke is *whatever* is affecting your pool and that good stretch was a hiccup/reset/reconfig of *whatever* is affecting your pool

maybe I am wearing a tinfoil hat but maybe you have blinders on..I don't know since I never ran a pool but it is obvious *something* has pulled a few cards out of your deck

Oh, it's "obvious" something is happening?  The post was tongue in cheek.  EVERY POOL has stretches and then bursts like I posted above, and it's annoying for all of them.

If you want an idea of how far variance can swing:  BTC Guild found 11 blocks in a row across the network a few months ago.  That was with the pool only have ~25% of the entire network hash rate.

EDIT:  The blocks: 275644 - 275654.  11 blocks by BTC Guild in 1h 10m with 0 blocks from other pools in that time.

I wouldn't recommend mining to anybody that doesn't have ASICs.  The minimum withdrawal is 0.01 if you don't want to have a fee deducted from the payment for txfees.

Best bet if you want a minimum payout in under 10 days is to get a few hundred GH/s.  I mean, I've got 10gh/s and make about .00050000 a day with current luck taken into account.  Plus difficulty keeps going up because more mining hardware keeps coming out.  To break even will mean buying something for cash, not bitcoin, having free electricity, and hoping the value of BTC keeps rising.  I'm actually trying to sell my 5 little AntMiner U1s, but can't get anybody to bite. 

So yeah, minimum requirements: >100gh/s for any kind of decent payout in a reasonable amount of time

If you've got a few hundred kh/s of scrypt mining with GPUs, point it to www.scryptguild.com.  Eleuthria runs that site too and it's awesome.

A link was given to me in IRC to "Crypto Fond", which is showing BTC Guild's logo under their partners, along with BFL, BTEr, Bitstamp, Virwox, and 50BTC.  They are likely a ponzi scheme.

BTC Guild (and myself) have nothing to do with them.  We are not partners.  Additionally, BTC Guild is not partnered *with anybody*.  BTC Guild does not engage in *any* activities other than acting as a mining pool.  We decline any attempt made to request an advertising or promotional deal with BTC Guild.  The closest thing to a partnership BTC Guild has done is the following:

1) Early BTC Guild (2011) recommended TradeHill over MtGox and used to provide a ticker which included a referral link.  This was removed after about a month and prior to TradeHill's closure because I did not feel comfortable promoting one exchange over another.
2) BTC Guild was one of the official resellers of ASICMINER hardware.  Orders were always made with ASICMINER prior to being sold, it was not a pre-order system (but did have a week or so of backorders on occasion between shipments).
3) "ScryptGuild" is not a partner, but in fact a spinoff of BTC Guild run by myself.  It is soon to be merging directly into BTC Guild to keep it all under one roof.

If you see any site claiming to be "partnered" with BTC Guild, please let me know.

I put together a guide to entry level mining gear. [Link corrected] Prices have gone down in the weeks since I published (I'm going to update it tomorrow), but these are still the entry-level devices available on the market. There's a coupon for two U.S. retailers, too.
