Please check your sources.

Here is a good one -> http://blockchain.info/

Please also be more clear. Are you talking about your pool? The network in general?

Well i assume you are talking about our current block at bitminter. Yes it is bad luck but 4000000 shares is by far not the worst i have seen.

Edit: Since our hashrate is below 100 GH/s it takes some time to mine such blocks down. Other pools do 8 million blocks in one day or even faster but with less reward.

Yes, thats bad luck. But only a few days ago we minted 6 blocks in 24 hours, with a lower hashrate at that, so I wouldnt feel too bad yet Smiley
It just goes with a small pool, you have lucky and not so lucky days. But in the long run you will earn more than with the big pools, because you dont pay a fee.

Worst ever block by a pool is ~24 million shares so far as far as I'm aware, but that was at a higher difficulty. If a new pool were to have that as their very first block ever there's a good chance they'd go bankrupt before they found the block...

Pooled mine at kano.is, solo mine at solo.ckpool.org

And a, what is it,  3 or 4% fee?
The bad luck block has been solved meanwhile, as well as 2 more blocks in the same day averaging miner revenue out already at or maybe above average.

More importantly perhaps, huge pools like deepbit give their operators a dangerous amount of control over bitcoin.  Luke Jr take down of coilcoin shows this potential. I think its better for cryptocurrencies if hash rate is spread out as much as possible, which is one reason Ill never mine for a pool with more than ~20% of the hashrate.
