These threads really are comedy gold. Thanks BTCEX, without you nobody would even be talking about SolidCoin!
Thanks also for mentioning the new GPU mining feature of Solidcoin 2. Yes, we do expect to soak up some of the GPU power leaving Bitcoin in its droves. All are welcome to come and mine SolidCoins, even you
You do raise a somewhat valid point though and a non-troll such as myself should take the time to explain the story so far in terms of the mining hashrate displayed in the client:
The SolidCoin 2.00 public beta showed a hashrate in the client, but Coinotron was showing a much lower rate in his stats. The "arrogant" Realsolid assumed that he was wrong and "corrected" the hash rate for 2.00 to more closely match what Coinotron was showing.
When mtrlt developed Reaper - the new SolidCoin GPU miner - using the now infamous SOURCE CODE
given to him by Realsolid, OMG!
- he had to create his own hashrate calc based on the SolidCoin source, which came out much higher than the rate shown in the official 2.00 client.
Realsolid knew they should be much closer, as he had designed his algo to be roughly equally effective on GPU and CPU, so he went back and examined 2.00 again in much closer detail. He found that the hashrate displayed was actually correct in the public beta, so changed it back for 2.01.
The issue is now corrected, you never lost any hashrate with your CPU mining, you have always been hashing at the higher rate.
So now you know.
Confusing, unfortunate and unnecessary, sure. But hey, nobody's perfect, not even our dear leader.
So I guess this was some long in-depth discussion you had with CH when he explained all this in detail to you.
Coz otherwise I'd take that as written by CH himself or someone who knows closely what he thinks and does?
The way you know what he knew and how he felt ... and ... and ... the acolyte has had divine inspiration bestowed upon him
Anyway, um, hashrate ... yeah that can be a difficult one to work out ... count the number of times it did something ... in threaded CPU code ... not even having to understand something with a bit more complexity like OpenCL threading ...
Though for anyone with CH's extreme abilities to code without any peer input required and produce perfect code (at something like $300,000 a year in Melbourne - gotta wonder what that job is) - counting should be pretty simple right ... ?
