Actully I might be wrong, In the miner right now I have 4238 shares but in parenthesis is says 198 but then it says Stale and that is 0. What does the 198 mean?
Q: What does it mean in the summary panel when the shares say something like 1000 (150) accepted?
A: That means 1000 shares total were accepted, including 150 in the last hour
Reading the FAQ
doesn't hurt, really.
I take it you have familiarized yourself with the README
GUI Miner is just a graphical interface. Which miner are you using? The actual miners that come with Kiv's Windows package
include poclbm, phoenix and rpcminer.
Your stale rate depends on the pool server, your network connection to the server, and the miner configuration.
Pushing the Intensity (Aggression)
too high for the card's hash rate will increase the stale rate.
