I get what Stale / Dupe is but remind me about other, Ty.

Other is a catch-all for rare rejects which are almost always due to client-side errors.  Other contains 'Low Difficulty' and 'Unknown Work' rejects.  Low Difficulty will only happen if you don't set your miner difficulty and you just started mining (before vardiff has adjusted you), or if your software is screwed up.  Unknown work means you sent work that didn't come from the pool.  This will only be BTC Guild's fault if the servers were restarted (since they forget what work has been assigned), which hasn't happened in about 3 months and counting.  Unknown rejects can also be when you submit very old (and very stale) work for some reason.  The pool forgets about jobs from prior blocks after enough new work has been generated for the newest block.

LD - Only happens when first starting, and only if you don't set your difficulty.  Otherwise, client software error.
Unknown - Normally client side error, sometimes connection related (disconnected and reconnected to a different backend).

Ty for that, just brought up 4 S3's so I'm close to 5Th now mad up of 9 devices, on of which is a rPi with about 10g on it I use for fun.



It should settle more later as the S3's haven't been running long.

Some changes were made to the initial connection server to change how it caches bad workers.  Previously the bad worker list was cleaned up after every block, which caused that server to slow down a little after a new block hit.  This server is only used for the initial share submission, after which miners are redirected to different servers.  This process was updated to only expire bad workers after 1 hour, in order to stagger the clearing of the bad worker cache.  This should make the initial connection more responsive.  Most users shouldn't notice this, since you only talk to that server when first turning your miner on, or recovering from a disconnection.

Did this require any sort of reset ?

No, this only affected the initial connection server.  The only way a miner would've noticed this is if they turned their miner on at the exact moment I was doing the restarts.  Anybody that was already mining was no longer connected to that server.

I know I have my own way of tracking what I call true 24hr stats but I've NEVER seen it this bad on the site display.

24 Hour Earnings 0.04405548

Under new diff, should be seeing 0.081 a day, under old if I think it was 0.086.

That tends to happen when you have a 7 hour, 6 hour, and 5 hour block in the previous 24-hours of shifts.  75% of the 24-hours only solved 3 blocks.


Could be worse though.  Slush has had 2x > 24-hour blocks in the last few weeks.  0.00000000 for 24-hours would be terrifying.

Every pool has their swings!
Slush has also had quite a few 10-20 block days in the past few weeks as well.
It is what it is yo...BTCGuild and Slush pools are the most reliable pools I have mined with.
Alsthough my primary pool is Slush pool, BTCGuild is my secondary (with a solo node in the works for my #3 backup)

The Best choice eleuthria ever made was not putting a forum link on the dasboard of Guild. You actually have to read and search to find his forum. Thank You!!! Every thread right now is tracking deliveries of s3's and 400 pages of what power supply to buy. Anyway, the pools been doing good recently and was looking for any new info on the NY situation. I see it's been delayed for furthur discussion, I guess the Bitcoin Foundation along with others asked for more input to be made before final laws are made.

Geez, what's going on with the pool hashrate the past 24 hours? It's back down to 9990THs after being above 12,000 for a few days. You would think the hashrate would be going up with all of the new deliveries of SP30s and S3s.

It's basically one group of accounts (same owner) coming and going.  Not sure why.  Same thing happened last week.

Very little news at this point.  My lawyer's advice right now is just be cautious and wait for finalized regulations before taking action.  They do agree that if NY *wanted to* they could likely target any pool in the United States because this new regulation is defining virtual currency business interactions with NY residents as a nexus creating activity.  If a nexus is established, they are able to prosecute/tax/regulate.  However, my lawyer believes it is a winnable case if it came to that due to lack of physicality and lack of marketing directed at NY residents.  There's also the intention of the regulations, which is money laundering and consumer protection.  In the case of BTC Guild, nobody is investing/depositing funds.  This is the "real" target of regulations - financial services where users are either being encouraged to invest or store funds with a third party.

The problem is that winning such a case wouldn't matter, since the cost of defending myself would probably exceed the value of the business.  For now, everything remains unchanged.  Lawyer is still trying to determine if having users agree to a set of conditions ("I am not a resident of NY", "I do not run equipment located in NY", "I am not accessing the site from NY") agreement would be sufficient protection.

If your under the assumption that less hash rate equals better luck then give Deepbit a try.  You should be rolling in great luck there.

A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?

500 Mhash for me, 3 blocks on two pools.  But that was a way different difficulty.

A common sentiment among pretty much anybody who has been in BTC since 2010-2012.  I thought getting that couple hundred bucks from a BTC->PayPal site was awesome back in 2011.  $1 for a coin? You must be insane if you want to pay me that much, take them all!  I'll just make another 50-100 tomorrow.

Yep.  A bird in the hand is better than 2 in the bush. Cash out now when the money is guaranteed and if I sense the price will rise I will just hoard the rest.

My problem was trusting BFL to ship a miner in October of 2012 which would have made me thousands of BTC.  So I paid for it with 210BTC.  The conman that is Josh Zerlan pushed it to July 2013 and my net return was less than 20 BTC  Angry

But at least I found 3 blocks for BTC Guild  Cheesy

My advice (for what it's worth, lol)... never cash out more than 50% of your holdings, no matter what. If you think a massive fall is coming or if you think we've reached the top of a bubble, only dump half of your coin and keep the rest indefinitely.

I've ridden a few altcoin pump-and-dump roller coasters and made some good profits that way. And I still have enough coins left over if they should rise again. Although it's becoming less and less likely as time passes.
