I'm CPU mining litecoins at miningpool.com.

Some dude, a "MrDanny," isn't even ranked among the top 30 in hashing power.  Currently, #30 is getting 4 k/hash.

And yet, MrDanny managed to find 2 consecutive blocks within 58 seconds of each other.  

Number of shares between the 2 blocks?  ZERO.

I'm CPU mining litecoins

mods -- is there a policy regarding questions specific to individual alternate cryptocurrencies?  this bitcoin mining forum is getting a lot of unrelated posts like this.

Oh whatever.  Then move it.  It's in mining, and it's about probabilities which is very relevant to Bitcoin mining.

If you can't see the connection that's not my problem.  Or move it.  See if I care.

Even though I don't have a problem with the post, the thing is that this could get out of hand pretty quickly. There's already a lot of crossover sometimes on the Namecoin stuff (or their was prior to merged mining back in August). It just seems like a better idea to apply the rules universally.
