I wonder if eleuthria is sleeping better these days, lol.

You bet.  Being able to sleep and leave the house without fear of a phone alarm going off because a server is under attack is a pretty nice feeling!

One day... Wink

Giving the post a little bump since I've noticed when the thread gets a new post there's a spike in the number of users that finish closing out their accounts.  45 days since the annoucement, 28 days since the pool shut off.  A little over 2 months left before the servers are shut down and removed from their racks at the datacenter.

There wallet address you entered was not a valid Bitcoin address. Please try again.

Stop using Windows XP.  If you insist on continuing to use an obsolete operating system, you'll have to use Firefox which has it's own SSL implementation that can handle ECDSA certificates.

It really is...for some reason I treat the Bitcointalk forums like IRC/real time chat and end up posting the initial thought and editing it to complete it.

LOL.

I tend to write a few words or a damn book on here. Not much in between.

Just because people have asked me a few times due to my involvement in mining over the last 4 years:

I think we MUST have larger blocks implemented in under a year.
I do NOT think BIP 101 is the right choice due to rate of increase being absurd.
If forced to pick today, BIP 100 is the best choice at this time.


However, if BIP 100 is implemented, conversations should begin IMMEDIATELY in terms of planning how to increase the max block size again down the road, to come up with a solution to allow organic growth that doesn't put all the power in the hands of a few massive mining farms.  If BIP 100 happens, it should not mean we stop talking about block size.

Thank you for posting your views.  I agree with this, and hope this is the consensus at the end of the day.  We will eventually need an increase in block size as you stated just not as abruptly as BIP101 recommends.

Closing in on the September 30th close date.  Since there is still a continuous trickle of withdrawals (10-20 per day), it is likely this date will be extended.  There will be a temporary placeholder when the servers are pulled in early October out of colocation.  A new withdrawal-only version of the site will be setup to continue allowing withdrawals.  Accounts that had not been emptied by September 30th will have a fee deducted to cover the cost of continuing to run servers for a service that has not been active for over 100 days.

Is there another pool that has been closed as professionally as this one has? A clear mining close date, a website close date,  continuous updates from eleuthria |(even though the pool is no longer running and no one's paying him to do this), best efforts made to ensure previous miners are able to withdraw their cash.

I hope eleuthria's actions are used as a text book next time some one wants to close a pool (I'm looking at *you* DeepBit).

Even in death, BTCGuild sets the standard for best practices.   Cool
