in the past 2 weeks, slush's pool has decreased dramatically, while deepbit is having a surge of users. any idea what's causing this?

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

slush's pool was temporarily down while he was on vacation (if i remember correctly) that's why people switched to deepbit.

Exactly what vuce said.  Slush's pool had some downtime, and people shifted to Deepbit to continue receiving reliable payouts.  That huge surge made Deepbit THE place to be for steady payouts, so even after slush's pool recovered, not everybody switched back.

I can attest to this, as well. I switched to BTCMine because of issues with slush's server while he was away (or whatever) for a few days. Long polling is nice, too Smiley
