Is there somewhere we can check the current odds?

Question:
How would this work with p2pool?

Hi VoluntaryMan,

We could point the hashing power to a p2pool node but our miners are not optimized with the proper settings for p2pool. I was also going to use my BFL singles rig to run the contract and they do not work well with p2pool.

My recommendation would be to run the contract on a large pool (deepbit or slush) if you are feeling lucky or abcpool.co if you want to get close to the PPS payout.

GPUMAX is not selling many shares lately so these are the best strategies IMHO.

Best,
gigavps

Would this also not work well on p2pmining.com ?
According to their thread, "Miners will be connecting to a P2Pool server so expect lots of long polls".
AFAIK this means it is equal to connecting to your own p2pool process and therefore would not work well.

Want to thank me for a post? Send some BTC my way:

In case you guys were wondering what this type of hashing power looks like....

So it's a little hard to get a shot of the entire room because it is so small. The room most of the GPUs are in along with the singles is just 9x16 to make the most of the three tons of AC.





Here is a shot through the side door looking that the rack farthest away in the previous picture. You'll notice that the bottom rack is empty. This will be the home of the 4 mini rigs. If they are too big to fit on the rack, I will remove it and they will sit on the floor.



Here is a pic from outside of the room but still inside the warehouse. You can see the HVAC ducts to push all cooling into the room.



Since I only have three tons of AC at the moment, some rigs are still in the warehouse portion. With cgminer, they self regulate to 75c.

Thanks to everyone who has played so far!

There have been 55 orders total and nobody has bought the 30 tickets @ 15% discount yet.  Smiley

We are beyond the halfway point. What are you going to do with ~230 BTC?

I'd probably see about getting my first FPGA card and throwing the rest at GLBSE.

Hi farfiman,

I will speak with amazingrando this morning and see if we agree on releasing the odds. Until then, we have now had 61 orders. The only product not purchased in the 30 tickets @ a 15% discount.

TTBit also said earlier in the thread he purchased a whopping 90 tickets!  Shocked

Good luck.

Ok - I just think it's fair  that any raffle or gamble  should always show the odds....

Doesn't mean I didn't buy a ticket anyway Wink
