i'm back mining eth for vga rx470, because xmr not profit

good for you. Why are we suppose to care ??
Thank god he stopped, the difficulty dropped quite a lot!

I was scared he was planning a 51% attack so glad he abandoned his xmr venture!

Yes true, for the currently mining Monero unprofitable, I also turned its mining to Zencash. Hope to have the latest information and guidance so that mining Monero more profitable.

If you look towards holding on to Monero for dear life while difficulty is lower over the next year or two instead of cashing out immediately, I do speculate the long term profits to be better than Zencash.

#1 coin to mine on my RX480.






This is two (2) RX550s:



However AMD has broken the OpenCL on the RX550 under Linux so you're limited to buying Windows 10 and maximum of eight (8) GPUs.

When you say AMD broke OpenCL, are you meaning you cannot install 8 gpus or is it the DAG lag or what?

I mean OpenCL is broken under Linux AMDGPU-PRO drivers for the RX550 (AMD is aware of the problem), the Windows 10 OpenCL drivers work but Windows has an 8 GPU limit and it's not free.

Despite the driver issues they seem to be the most power efficient cards for mining XMR however I still prefer the 480/580 even if they use a bit more power.

The wallet's saying that alternate blocks have been added at 1410885, 1410886, and 1411461 (two blocks).  What's up with that?

http://cryptonote-coin.org/

Thank you for at taking my query. I have been to this website but it is just basic info and whitepaper which i have already read, and then they teach about creating your own coin, which i dont intend to.

I wanted to learn how i can contribute to monero, or how I can use blockchain, pool, wallet API to build tools for cryptonote community, like payment processing, mobile wallet etc.

Hackers Exploiting Microsoft Servers to Mine Monero - Makes $63,000 In 3 Months

Mining cryptocurrencies can be a costly investment as it takes a monstrous amount of computing power, and thus hackers have started using malware that steals computing resources of computers it hijacks to make lots of dollars in digital currency.
Security researchers at security firm ESET have spotted one such malware that infected hundreds of Windows web servers with a malicious cryptocurrency miner and helps cybercriminals made more than $63,000 worth of Monero (XMR) in just three months.
According to a report published by ESET today, cybercriminals only made modifications to legitimate open source Monero mining software and exploited a known vulnerability in Microsoft IIS 6.0 to secretly install the miner on unpatched Windows servers.

Source : https://thehackernews.com/2017/09/windows-monero-miners.html?m=1
Experts at the ESET security company discovered cybercriminals who exploited Microsoft servers to mine Monero (XMR) and raised a total of $ 63,000 in three months of attack. Mining cripto-coins is a profitable business, but at the same time it is expensive because it requires a significant investment in computing power. The group of hackers known as "Crooks" is using malicious code that steals computing resources from the victim's machine for crypto-coin mining, and the number of such attacks continues to increase. The "Crooks" modified the mining code of Monero to exploit a vulnerability known as CVE-2017-7269 in Microsoft IIS 6.0 to deploy the miner to Windows servers.

Funny that we still have webdav vulnerabilities in 2017. Windows servers are better off mining monero than serving websites anyway.

Hello guys and gals.

I've just launched a UK Monero mining pool built on a powerful UK server - currently hashing @ 28KHS

Looking for UK miners or European miners to come join me and help find our first block!

Pool is built on nodejs-pool by snippa2

Mine to exchange account
Mine to wallet
set custom difficulty / VarDiff enabled
Payments every 2 hours
Advanced dashboard for stats
Tracker workers by id
PPLNS
0.6% fees

I wonder why web admins use Linux servers 90% of the time.

I still wonder why general consumers use Windows 90% of the time, despite the wannacry stuff and other fiascos.

Using Snowden logic, windows is a professional OS with security guaranteed while Linux is a amateurish OS developed by amateurs that have no idea what they're doing.

FYI... IIS 6.0 came out with Windows Server 2003 and is no longer supported, also in Windows XP Pro 64bit. On top of that, there are companies that I've worked for in the past that had legacy apps running on these old servers and would put them on a "do not patch" list because they were afraid of causing unexpected conflicts with older legacy apps and then not having resources available to find and fix the problems.  They know they are taking a risk but can't move and change fast enough to actually solve the problem, that was one good reason to leave.

That would be because M$ uses tactics like forcing OS upgrades to use directx and has created proprietary formats that only their products can use therefore when a consumer tries to move to another OS they cannot use the programs they previously used and most are unable to find and use a new set of programs to replace the ones they rely on and end up giving up and reverting. By controlling the gaming market they get every generation when they are young hooked on Winblows.

Those are just orphaned blocks. You can safely ignore that message.
