Yes... it is still variance... and regardless of if you're on P2Pool, or a centralized pool, you're still going to be doing the same percentage of the hashpower for the whole network...
and yes... you're going ape-shit... the impression I have been getting from you this whole time is that you think the sky is falling, and you're running around like Chicken Little, in desperation, with only a limited understanding of what is actually happening around you. From the very first post I saw about you pushing to go to that pool.
How much has the total network hashpower gone up in the past 90 days that you referenced? And you're focusing so hard on an outlier, that may not even be an outlier now with today's network hashpower relative to our hash rate.
Also, much of that time on P2Pool, has been without Pyramining's hashpower included, as the mining hardware has been offline for a while. It is coming back online now, which will change things for P2Pool by a measurable degree.
Sorry, bud... but at no time during our back and forth, did I feel like we were having an "intelligent debate"... so that feeling was, unfortunately, one-sided on your part.
I'll end my participation on this particular topic, here.
Have a good weekend.
What this all comes down to is the simple fact that you are ok with a payout every few days and growing as the difficulty increases.
Would you be ok with a payout every 7 days? How about once every 2 weeks?
I am not ok with that, having that much time between payouts slows down compounding.
I am invested in several other cloud mines that payout once a week, thats fine. But with this p2pool node the time between blocks and therefore payouts is increasing at a very rapid pace.
You will never convince me to be ok with a payout at an unknown and growing interval.
I was arguing, and your words backed me up, that the intervals between blocks are getting longer. How long until the outlier is 7 days? How long until its 14? This is what bothers me, I am for supporting p2pool, and don't you dare attempt to assume what I do and don't know. You obviously can't comprehend my point about technical analysis and because of that you assume that I have no idea how mining works. You are so full of yourself its not funny.
Here is how our discussion actually went.
ME: I prefer apples over oranges
You: Oranges are fruit too, if you dont like oranges man up and deal with it.
ME: Oranges are too acidic for me
You: Oranges are acidic, just deal with it.
