A couple of question about https://vanitypool.appspot.com/

1) How can I know if I have to use compressed or uncompressed keys for the search? For example, in this case:

https://vanitypool.appspot.com/availableWork   -->  "11111111"
public key: 04C13D9CF2B0E382A4AF29C5E2B97F85C6DD9445F7DCE82CD7207E6FC4716511981B0012C10B39EF1 52257A8407A2965F92F075379D311D5786D9421795B82D01C

can I use only compressed keys?

I found this public key:

Code:
a15f585a9d39a8a091962d11af1e96320fc3543b5201a8c9b12eedf695bad359 3b6621eddf4207bd186c8293c6b497555594b32d2eb9c09ae8f81791a0dfde48

if I add it with the public key
Code:
C13D9CF2B0E382A4AF29C5E2B97F85C6DD9445F7DCE82CD7207E6FC471651198 1B0012C10B39EF152257A8407A2965F92F075379D311D5786D9421795B82D01C

I get this public key

Code:
83f0e53639fbcead931a0d19eb3f3f6684dc75fac68a8c5dbc21cdb8b4ecfb19 d933c437e192b2b6dd27a6b9d09e6470ca220ed27d4bcb05251b1d0e47adad90

in compressed format

Code:
0283f0e53639fbcead931a0d19eb3f3f6684dc75fac68a8c5dbc21cdb8b4ecfb19

that gives this address (only 7 '1'):

Code:
11111113ix5Nw6kgetPaMBCWBdp5TTfX

My question is: if I found a match with the pattern "11111111", would it be valid? Or do I have to use only uncompressed keys?

I don't want to waste time with a fruitless quest.

Arulbero asks for an interesting question. Compress and uncompressed Krys are allowed ?

About how long would it take the Vanitygen pool to find 1ZeusLight ?

I've been thinking about this for a bit, and mainly about the possibility of merge-mining many addresses at once, to massively increase efficiency. This is what I've come up with:

1. Everybody who wants an address generates an ECDSA keypair, a Personal Pair
2. Everybody gives their public keys to the pool, which combines them into the Combined Public Key
3. The pool distributes the Combined Public Key to miners. The miners generate random keypairs until they find the right address when combined with the Combined Public Key, the same way it's done with split mining.
4. The randomly generated private key is given to the person who requested the address
5. Everybody but the person who requested the address gives their private key to the person who requested it.
6. The person who requested the key can spend funds by combining the pool's random private key, everybody else's private key, and his own private key.
7. Everybody else generates new keypairs and mining starts again, return to step 1

There are issues (for example, what if somebody chooses not to give up their private key after someone else's address is found?), but perhaps it is possible to work around them. This could make a big difference for mining speed, and I'm sure it is worth the downsides.

EDIT: I'm not the first to come up with this, apparently. See https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1715787.0 by user ArcCsch. When I am done with my current project, I may begin work on a merged-mining pool, and looking into cool aspects of this, for example the most optimised way to split up into smaller merged pools to minimize risk while still keeping profits higher than with "solo" mining.

I'm not much of a business person either. But I would imagine some type of stock issuance would be a start !)
