Paid
25 BTC to Glasswalker
25 BTC to Makomk
5 BTC to Kano

Hi Entropy,

great to hear you kept your promise and also compensated kano for the CM1 related tweaks in the Icarus driver.

Generally, I was following the development process most of the time at #cm1 and understand that reaching the current state is the outcome of a great teamwork between Glasswalker and makomk, with lots of help from more supporters. Going through the chat logs I'd say that TheSeven contributed significantly, not only with real-time updates to MPBM to support CM1 bitstream development, but also with bitstream development itself and code reviews.

Even if I do not use MPBM, I feel that his contribution deserves some compensation, but this is only my personal view. For the bounty that is soon to be paid out, I therefore suggest to not split the pledged coins to individuals by ourselves, but to send them to Glasswalker and let him distribute them in a fairly manner. He proved his professionalism and can best rate whom to thank for getting where we are now.


@Isokivi: I understand that most of us testers agree that the terms are sufficiently met to pay out the bounty. From my personal contacts with contributors I'd guess that 60% are ok with it. Are you going to initiate a vote and define acceptance criteria to get that officially passed?

Vote up. ..as soon as I can figure out how to make one. As soon as someone tells me where the fuq do I find tools to post a poll.

Actually screw that: If someone is opposed to paying out the bounty speak up in 24h.
After the latest run of flashing my boards, my mpbm reported hashrate is 854Mhs/ board, my average U is 5,78 and the hashrate reported at poolside is 845Mhs/ board. This leaves little room for doubt that the conditions have been met imo.
If your pre #50 board dosent get there, it's hardly the bitstream developers fault.

I'd pay the bounty out and suggest we do so unless relevant and valid arguments emerge and ppl not testing the bitstreams is no argument.

Think it has to be done as a new topic, but instead you select "post new poll". Might be able to do it on an existing post, but it think it's fine to just make a new one.

I dont see way to exclude every forum member that did not pledge, so I feel the poll is a useless tool for our purposes.

Like guessed, we already have 60+% support to release the funds. Please consider dropping me an ACK/NACK either here in the tread, via PM, or in #cm1 to approve your support. As soon as spiccioli and Arvicco (who contributed a large amount but was silent thereafter) confirm, we are at 85+% and ready to transfer.

I agree to let the funds to be paid out.
I have a stable and good speed bitstream working (hashvoodoo175) on my 2 boards.
They do not appear to like the faster ones, but with so many reporting good reports for the faster ones I can't blame the bitstream.
So it's achieved what I want and I do look forward to improvements.

My boards are 430 series yet are unstable too. They often need resetting several times a day.

Can your hashvoodoo175 bitstreamed CM1s run for days or better without needed to be reset?

The prior release of the 175 (the 175 OC from the 16th) has so far been rock solid stable on all boards I'm aware of it being tested on. (on my boards the highest uptime I had without problems was like 4-5 days, but the only reason I interrupted that was for reflashing or development. Several others reported success reviving pre-50 boards which had major stability problems using this bitstream and now they mine fine).

If you're having stability problems please try out that bitstream and let me know how it goes.

My hope (once I have time to tackle it) is to update a new release to have this kind of stability again (the current release is far less stable).

Just trying to make Bitcoin a Success... One crazy project at a time. (13rwPKskyATcAq3PpnCikfFG8989DQ8M3c)

Yes it appears so. Usually it was something else on the board that gave out first with other bitstreams, but this one lasted so long (2 days+) that it proved their was a small fault with my usb hub. They don't use that now and it's been completely solid since.
