I just checked the blockchain and the one mysterious miner that solved ~20-30 blocks a day is gone.

Was that a botnet that was somehow taken down? I'm curious.

BFL stopped "testing" all those backlogged singles?

I was never convinced it was a botnet.

Where is BFL located? Seemed like that IP was pointed towards the Netherlands.

There were several IP addresses used, one of which was an interesting one in Spain. Pretty sure most of the blocks were sent through other pools to disguise them, and proxies too. The general consensus seems to be that he stopped operating after P2SH was implemented, because it broke his pool script and he must not have wanted to bother fixing it.

This specific miner is more than likely still mining somewhat solo otherwise directing hashing to pools.

Network hashrate is still roughly on the same levels as when mysterminer were soloing like a beast.

those IP addresses don't really mean anything... weren't most of them to leaseweb?

i mean, i have some kimsufi in france, and hetzner in germany

Dacentec, best deals for US dedicated servers. They regularly restock $20-$25 Opterons with 8-16GB RAM & 2x1-2TB HDD's (ofc, usually lots of other good stuff to choose from).  I did a Serverbear benchmark of one of my $20/mo Opteron (June last year), it's here.  Have had about a half dozen different servers with Dacentec, & none have failed to sustain at least 40MB/s (burst higher). My favorite is a 12-month rent-to-own ZT Systems 2XL5520 16GB 2x2TB SATA for $40/month (got lucky with the 'off-brand', haven't seen a RTO 2xL5520 for under $50/mo since -- at least for monthly contracts).  wholesaleinternet.com has some ancient 2-core intel CPUs @ $10/mo sometimes (I got an Intel Core 2 6300 @ 1.86GHz, with a 250GB HDD with 46000 hours on it, LOL. $20 @ Dacentec is much better, if you can grab one). joesdatacenter.com (same location as Wholesale Internet) also occasionally has specials (or if you don't want to wait, it has an AMD Opteron 170 @ $16/mo).

Yeah, the block solving rates of the other pools went up significantly, especially deepbit.  Tongue
