Well, that is a start, but my miners are in a room no one really ever enters, and i would prefer not having to actually enter the room and look every time if my miner is still running or not. I would prefer being able to see it from a browser plugin (on another computer), or on my phone. Or both.

YOU GOT IT ALL WRONG!

My miner is 20 km from me. I barely never check the host laptop and the miner itself is in a separate room of its own.

The script can run in any computer that has Internet connection and it will produce sound alerts and it displays the hash rate in every 5 minutes. Everything you said is just wrong but I guess it was my fault not to express myself clearly enough.

well, i'm sorry for not being as good with computers as you, or probably 95% of the forum users here.

But such improvements are the thing i am indeed looking for.

1) Checking up on my miner from a distance, preferably from within a browser plugin or an app.


2) Splitting the income between multiple wallets (for example 49% to wallet A, 49% to wallet B and 2% to wallet C)

If these two options are easily done in P2P (not to many steps to set it up, and not require too much knowledge, or a very, very detailed guide on how to do it) and it only requires setting it up once then i would seriously mine at P2P without problems.

Ok, no problem, I am aware of the fact that I feel no empathy for the non-programmers and thus set too high expectations.

What I see from your suggestions is that P2Pool just needs a GUI.

There should be a website that would allow monitoring P2Pool miners, essentially doing the same thing that my shell script does but in a web browser.

The P2Pool node should also have a GUI that would allow sending mined bitcoins to multiple wallets by using Bitcoin daemon's RPC.

Programming-wise, these are both very trivial tasks.

correct, that would make it useful to me, and hopefully many more miners.

Hehe, Hyena. You're resourceful, but a bit abrasive, huh?

Anyway, thanks for being the voice of a "majority miner", zimmah. Invaluable input, really.

Not sure which Bitcoin wallet to use? I suggest to take a look at Electrum.
Electrum is an open-source lightweight client: user friendly, fast, and one of the safest ways to store, send or receive bitcoins.
For executables (Windows, OSX, Linux, Android), source code and documentation, see the Electrum homepage.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention oda.krell.

This is a worthy cause and I would very much like to contribute towards donations for p2pool miners. And the development of the platform as well.

Come to think of it, "voluntary donations by holders of Bitcoin" might become a third monetary incentive for mining besides the block reward and the transaction fees. Of course the transaction fees (in that you can voluntarily specify them) are a form of donations as well, but we are talking about providing a monetary incentive not for mining in general, but for the right kind of mining, right?  Cheesy

It's all bullshit. But bullshit makes the flowers grow and that's beautiful.

I could develop the website that allows monitoring P2Pool miners. I would do it in JavaScript totally browser based and it would log the hash rate of the specified receiving address periodically. It could also play music or make bleeps when a payout is made or the hash rate decreases under the preferred threshold. For starters, such functionality would be fair enough, don't you think? Further enhancements such as automated SMS sending and e-mails could be considered later.

Of course, there may be other more talented or enthusiastic developers out there, ready to do the job. All I wanted to say is that we have the potential resources to do it.

That is good to know, thank you for your effort.

I would be glad to see a safer distribution of hashrate

If anyone is interested in looking what P2Pool developers have been doing lately, then browse around their github page:
https://github.com/forrestv/p2pool/graphs

I believe anyone can contribute to the development and if new functionality gets implemented one must just make another pull request. How the contributors get their share of the donations remains unknown to me. I suspect a better idea is to fund individual features to be implemented rather than P2Pool development as a whole.

Why not just change the line with the beep to
echo "$info"|mail -s "Dead Bitcoin Miner" $email

and for $email, suggest a mobile gateway so the user can get a SMS alert.

Yes, for programmers that would be the way to go. I personally don't need sms nor e-mail notifications and thus I did not implement the functionality.
