It would most certainly not imply that a solo mining pool is a fraud.  I'm not sure how you drew that conclusion from this discussion.  Is it likely that I will solo mine a block of BTC?  Nope.  Is it likely I will win the powerball on Wednesday?  Nope.  Doesn't mean I won't pick up a ticket for a couple bucks and try anyway.

EDIT: It is not a combined effort of shares that solve a block.  It is a SINGLE share that does it.  Each time you're attempting to find the solution, it either works or it doesn't.  Flip a coin.  Either it lands on heads or it lands on tails.  It can't land on both at the same time.  Each flip of that coin has absolutely no relation to the flips before it, or the flips that come after it.
I hear you. Like I said, I'll continue with my reading up on pool mining and bitcoin in general. In the meantime, I'll leave my entire 14GH pointed firmly to the solo mining pool.
PS. In my part of the world, though the lottery jackpot is not always won at each draw, there are always winners in each draw.

That's why I don't typically compare mining to playing the lottery.  You can win in the lottery by matching X of Y numbers.  You can't partially solve the block of BTC.

Like it has been mentioned, the discarded number is due to the S3's high queue (I think it is 1046), but I am meant to believe does NOT affect your mining. you can change this to a lower number to get less discards.
This particular solo pool, I have noticed, takes a while to "settle" down to your appropriate hashing speed to assign a relevant Diff, so a few minutes is not long enough to reach conclusions.

OK, I will wait and check the stats after few hours ..
The number of discards has no effect on your mining.

Will you add a counter or at least the last block solved (with or without address or partial address info) ?

Given the low frequency we're likely to be seeing blocks, I'll just post the found blocks here. I'm not even storing a share count or anything at the moment since shares mean nothing. We'll see if the popularity picks up and if I should add that in, but I suspect I'll mostly see a trickle of hashes from small hardware and the occasional failover.

Anyone knows why the antminer S1 or S3 does not work for solo mining.
It gives high DiffR# and there is not way to tell what is happening.
Even if you turn off the pc that is running the wallet, the antminers donot detect that and keep running as if all is well for a long time (in minutes) at least in my case.

This is a pool thread for support of this solo pool, it is not for generic support for solo mining. That said, the Antminers have old versions of cgminer in them that used the ancient getwork protocol which bitcoind was not fast enough to work with for modern hardware. Either upgrade your cgminer or point your hashes at this pool instead.

my apologies, willl look out for the thread about generic solo mining. Thanks for the tip about cgminer. The cgminer indeed is very old in these antminers (new or old)

now:-)

Do you support testnet?

No I don't but I could easily set one up on a separate VPS. However these servers do have running costs and there's not much in the way of incentive with running a testnet pool is there?

If it's any indication (and you probably already know) one of the "competition" solo pool started last year November, reported 2.5 TH/s in February. It is now at 44 TH/s. They found their first block end of June and a total of 7 blocks since then.

Congratulations to the owner of the first block mined by a large farm on this solo pool!

There was no great luck involved here, there was a lot of hashrate being thrown at this.
