Yes, you don't get anything in your balance until a block in which you have contributed shares gets found.

The current round started 2011-05-30 14:20:23.526037-07 and no block has been found yet.  It's a long round.  But also it is a small pool, so your 200ish MH/s will earn you in the neighborhood of 1.6 BTC for each block that is found (as long as the pool's total hash rate stays at about 7.6GH/s).  So, you get paid less often, but you get paid in larger chunks.  On a larger pool, you'd get paid more often, but in much smaller chunks.

Thanks, ewal.  That 200ish number is because I've been running two Phoenix processes, one pointed at Eligius, and one pointed at Continuum, because both have been going down a lot in the last week or so (that way so that the one that's up can take up the slack as the other goes down).  I've noticed that if I run a third concurrent Phoenix process pointed at yet another pool, though, that one of the other two will crap out (usually the Continuum one).  Do you guys have any idea why that might be?

it likely has something to do with running them all over the same port, try forwarding port 8334 to port 8332 in router on that machine, then pointing the third instance at port 8334

Additionally you should try setting up a mining proxy like http://forum.bitcoin.org/?topic=5506.0

Hey I'm new at this pool. I was wondering what the average is when the pool pays its miners? Is it only once a block is found? Does the pool have two account Prop and PPS split equally between each other or are they both individual accounts?

Cheers.. Using this as my backup when deepbit is down. It's the only PPS left.

If you found my post helpful, use my tip jar!

If the pool has no balance left = no payout till a block is found if you're doing PPS.

Well I'm happy to report I'm getting paid pretty consistently on the PPS side now. I really think you need to advertise the pool more, it's so small but it's one of the best % wise. Although the interface can be a bit daunting haha.

Me too  Smiley  I hope there won't be a major downtime like last time though.

Maybe we can advertise it ourselves Wink

I read somewhere that he is not a web designer so maybe that's why the site is like that.

Yeah, I really do think its a great pool that could pick up with a better interface. I just don't have much access to the backend and my website backend knowledge is crap. I can do pretty front ends though :-). We must spread the word! I've just set it up on a proxy, so whenever my main pool goes down, it just goes to the next on the list. Works like a champ!

It would be nice if the payout limit was lower. 1 btc is a bit high, considering its current value. Lower it to 0.5 or 0.25.

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

I think he has it set at 1 BTC to avoid transaction fees. And considering he has a 0% prop and 5% (the lowest) PPS, I can't blame him

Damn. Is this pool getting DDoS?
Because mostly it goes down like a minute and up again, but this one has been down for more than an hour like what happened 3 days ago.

Been down for an hour and a half according to when my miner stopped. Not sure what's going on.

Hope you setup a fallback if this pool gets a long downtime.

I have theories why this 'might' be down...
.DDoS
.Server maintenance
.Internet or electricity shortage

Anyways only martok can give us the right reason why its down.

Yeah, that's the only downside to this little pool. That's why I have my workers on a proxy so they automatically hop to another pool until this one comes back up. Great stuff, worth the measly few dollars a month.

Hi all,
Quick pool update in light of the downtime today. It was just a server crash and the host took a while to respond to the ticket. All should be normal now.
Also, our hashrate has been hanging pretty constant which is probably why we haven't been finding blocks. PPS mode has become much more popular and was at 25 ghash before the crash today and is in fact finding blocks.
I would like to see the scoring (proportional) side grow though as well, that is where I mine personally.
Otherwise, still working on a web frontend for monitors.

I also use the proportional side of this pool.  The fact that we haven't generated a block in two weeks seems unheard of. Even if you use the upcoming projected difficulty increase, our current hash rate should be generating a block every day or so, not taking more than 14 days.

Hmm, not every day I think. Even the 25 GHs pps mode isn't generating every day. Unless my numbers are way off.
