Which block was this on?
It was round 41 block 172375, before you made the fix. Got so disappointed that I dropped out for a few rounds, happily not for good!

Another feature of DGM is cross-round leakage.
Yea what a strange system, still got to get my brains over it. You are probably correct in that DGM is not good for intermittent mining. However, I would be surprised if the peculiarities of DGM didn't leave room for more advanced and profitable strategies than the standard pool hopping, which of course would be (and will be) another topic.

well, i was present all of block #47 and was issued .54 bitcoins for 4911 shares, the person right above me received .61 for 1685.

i first started in block #46, reached 5,901 shares, and received .38 bitcoins.  some fellow named NoodlesMcGee received .41 for for 5,499.. fair enough, since it seems like he's been around for a while.  in block 47, he received .32 for 1039 shares, vs (as mentioned earlier) .54 for 4911.  miners were running the whole time.   

i shifted some off after  seeing that, seems a bit extreme. 

the only time I came out ahead on a pool with a similar system was after I stopped mining

Dacentec, best deals for US dedicated servers. They regularly restock $20-$25 Opterons with 8-16GB RAM & 2x1-2TB HDD's (ofc, usually lots of other good stuff to choose from).  I did a Serverbear benchmark of one of my $20/mo Opteron (June last year), it's here.  Have had about a half dozen different servers with Dacentec, & none have failed to sustain at least 40MB/s (burst higher). My favorite is a 12-month rent-to-own ZT Systems 2XL5520 16GB 2x2TB SATA for $40/month (got lucky with the 'off-brand', haven't seen a RTO 2xL5520 for under $50/mo since -- at least for monthly contracts).  wholesaleinternet.com has some ancient 2-core intel CPUs @ $10/mo sometimes (I got an Intel Core 2 6300 @ 1.86GHz, with a 250GB HDD with 46000 hours on it, LOL. $20 @ Dacentec is much better, if you can grab one). joesdatacenter.com (same location as Wholesale Internet) also occasionally has specials (or if you don't want to wait, it has an AMD Opteron 170 @ $16/mo).

looks like you picked a good time to take a break.

With block #47, we don't know what that person above you contributed in prior rounds.  You have to look at how many shares it takes to solve the block too.  You will have some earnings that carry over to the next round as well, as you pointed out.

thanks for pointing that out.  we broke something in a recent update but it should be fine now.  btw, merged mining with namecoin has been running for the past 2 days.  we're just working out the UI for it now.  the spoils should be available for you to see soon Smiley

UPDATE:  Merged Mining with NameCoin is now active.

Actually, it's been active for about 40 blocks.. we just got the UI done.  If you've been mining, you should already have some NMC rewards!

Logged in and saw my namecoins.  UI is nice and clean and I was able to withdraw my nmc with no issues.

* Don't forget you need to set a nmc wallet address before you can withdraw

Did something break? Workers showing 0 mhash, top miners now at 0 and #72 an invalid block. Was so glad to see the block get solved too.

Edit: Looks like Btcx is already on it.

Thanks for the report.  We are tinkering around but the invalid was just a coincidence.  Bummer after such a long round Sad  Separate email notifications for Namecoin should be up shortly.

Ever thought about paying out BTC for Namecoins like Eclipse? For the people that don't mine to keep them.

It's been at 400 Gh for a while, peaking at like 700.  It appears there is a big hopper who goes in and out.

Good suggestion.  It's on the list of things to do but I don't know how soon we'll get to it.

Right.  Actually, the last number I had the title at was 250gh.  I believe a mod bumped it up to 459gh, which is probably what they saw when they decided to update the sticky list.

abcproxy actually,
our hashrate (ozcoin) dropped by 400ghash at same time maxbtc increased, and about 15mins before diablo-d3 got around to updating the top9 to top10 - he looks at "current speed" so really top 10 is pretty inaccurate at times :/
hope thats a help

What is abcproxy anyhow?

It's a derogatory word used for ABCPool.  They ticked off a few pool operators and miners with the way they hid what they were actually doing until pressed against the wall.  They pool hop with their "pools" hash power, keeping any extra money earned from hopping on top of charging a fee to miners.

They've since come clean and openly stated how their pool operates, but there are quite a few pool ops that are still sour about their lack of openness from the start [mostly prop pool owners since they were the ones being hopped].

Man that is crappy. It seems to kill any small profit you might get as well when were on these unlucky blocks.  At least at my small mhash anyhow, I am adding more soon as my hardware arrives in the mail although I don't think it makes a lot of difference when they hop like that.
