Unfortunately I was pool mining...

Note that I did not receive anything extra for finding it!

But still! One of my Antminer S3+ found a block shortly after I restarted them.

Has anyone else found one?

EDIT: I've switch to eligius.st pool.

That's great! I don't think I've ever found one myself yet. Your problems with Ghash are not uncommon. Switch to a better pool. I use Eligius.

... if you're one of them people that are going to cry "omg i shoulda been mining solo!" you'd never get that block like that, it was a block within that pool, you were the lucky one to give the right share

its like you a half dozen people walking down the road, you'd be the lucky one to trip on a rock.
go by yourself, you never follow that same path to randomly trip on that rock.

on the other hand, congrats on the find

Rare find indeed. Congratulations. It is good to see non industrial miners in the era of huge scale mining farms and cloud mining.

EDIT: I've noticed that ghash.io isn't paying as much as the calculators are saying I should get. I will give it a few more days to get it confirmed, but, any pool recommendations?

Awersome, just if you are solo mining.

Can you explain this in further detail? Maybe using a different metaphor? I'm not doubting that you are right, but I have often wondered about this myself, as I once found a block on BTCGuild, and of course, who isn't going to have that thought of "Man, if I had been solo mining"? I'll admit I've never even looked at the source code of a pool, maybe I should, but I thought that the shares i submit to a pool would be the same ones that my miner would submit if I were "mining solo", so to speak (of course, unless the pool sets your miner to only submit shares of a certain difficulty, which I suppose the majority of them do). I'm sure I'm missing some technical detail.

You're mining totally different data depending on where you're mining.

Too bad you weren't mining on P2Pool, you would've gotten a nice 0.125BTC reward for finding a block! (assuming you would have found it there also..)

Congrats on finding a block in any event!

Congrats, it's it close to a miracle considering it's from an Antminer. You don't need to switch pools, finding another block wouldn't be any time soon  Wink
