Just wondering what everyone's opinion is on CGminer's backup pools without --failover-only?
So in other words, does anyone have any idea if leaking work to other pools would increase or decrease overall efficiency?
I used to have just BTCGuild set up but not I have backups at Deepbit and P2Pool. Haven't been running the backups very long but I seem to be getting ~0.005BTC every time a block is found (3 times today in the last 24-hours). I haven't had this setup long enough to determine if BTCGuild is affected to a major degree or not, especially with the small, non-configurable estimation window. Deepbit averages ~20MH/s in a 60 minute window.
I'm running windows 1x 840MHz unlocked 6950, 1x 725MHz 6450, 1x stock 6770m and linux 1x 1.02GHz 5830 all with CGminer.
