Website is being extremely slow.

Really? Website is fine for me.

Hit and miss here sometimes it works others it does not, no matter it always continues to send work to the miners which is the important part I can wait a few minutes until the website gets back.

Is anyone having their hashing power under-reported by 10-20% all the time? My miners read 3.0 Gh/s, but GPMAX always hovers from 2.4-2.8 regardless if I'm doing Public or Private work.

(This has probably been answered before, but I don't have a clue how many pages back it would have been.)

How long is the wait time to signup on GPUMAX? I signed up awhile back (month, maybe two) but never got an invite. I guess they aren't accepting anyone else?

It should vary, sometimes reporting 10% less, sometimes 10% more, depending on your luck in solving shares.

Seems to be different for everyone. I waited around a month IIRC.

I applied in April, still waiting. There is a backlog.
EDIT: I applied for mining

I appreciate donations at ( 1NwkQdmomQPLtdes5KuZhB1D22p7ZGRy4p )
If I am helping in the CGMiner thread give it to Con or Kano. They do the work there.
If you want to sign up for a coinbase account I would appreciate it if you use my referral link. US people now wire, 1% fee give or take a little for sending to your bank account. https://coinbase.com/?r=515bf6145682db9d11000028&utm_campaign=user-referral&src=

Way too many people using this service now.  Leased work finishes way too fast for it to be viable as a primary income source, unlike how it used to be

EDIT: And by income source I mean mining income.. definitely not that feasible to mine for a living  Grin

There are two types of users: purchasers and miners.  I need to know which you are to fully understand your statement.

Either way, you just need more purchasers so that the hashing power is leased more often and split between more purchasers.  So, there are not enough people using this service Tongue.

Yeah, I'm talking from the mining point of view.

The amount of purchasers is way too thinned out I believe.  I'm sure quite a few people that apply check only the purchase option to get accepted faster but then decided only to mine  Tongue

If I follow you correctly, People can sign up as purchasers then never purchase but only mine?
If that is the case then I hope their applications didn't get to hop over people honest enough to let pirate know they just wanted to mine.

More likely that its just a survey..

Has pirate made any progress on trying to get leased work for other applications beside bitcoin mining?

I really believe gpumax would take off if there was leased work for things like rendering, password cracking, scientific research, etc. it would also help people with large farms hedge if bitcoin ever had any issues.

I totally agree, those options seem like they would have so much potential as there is a wide range of industries that could utilize the hashing power. Ideally to have some type of secure API that a customer could plug into to get work in and out. It would future proof GPUMAX for bitcoin and beyond. It would be a hell of a lot easier to secure funding too. Right now they read your business proposal and are like bitcoin what??

That "secure API" would be very difficult to design.  GPUs can upload code to CPUs and hijack the OS.  Don't keep any wallet.dat's on your hashing machines.  If you're talking about just performing various hash functions, that might work, but generic computation is a can of worms I wouldn't touch with a 10 foot pole.

Any thoughts on what other fields would benefit from brute forcing numbers through 2 rounds of SHA256?  Realistically that's what we're all doing, and that's all our miner hardware software is designed to do.

I assumed they meant utilizing GPUs, because if you're talking about custom mining hardware then it's probably pointless.  Although, I suppose a system could be set up where bitstreams for FPGAs could be sent out.  You would only have a limited list of supported FPGAs, but that could work.

I was half-heartedly being facetious.  What they're suggesting would be (IMO) a logistics nightmare.

Well none of my rigs have wallets, not sure why anyone would put a bitcoin client on their mining rig.

I don't claim to understand how it would work, I just seem to remember pirate suggesting this was a possibility when he first started this.

Video rendering is certainly an application which would be applicable. Especially for 5970's or other cards with 2GB of ram or more.

Some people have mining cards in their desktop systems.  But yeah, there is no reason to have one on a dedicated system unless your mining p2pool, and then you can just have an empty one.
