Good morning! Here's a brief status update for today.
  • We'd like anyone who still has connectivity errors to please reply to this message. That means that you had issues connecting to the system yesterday or today (not on Friday or before then.) We are not referring to having stale shares, which can have a variety of other causes, or website display errors. We want to see if the issue has been resolved, or if not, then how much progress has been made towards a resolution. Please post your password arguments.
  • We are pleased to announce that we came to a decision on which way to proceed during yesterday's 3-hour conference call. However, we aren't able to provide any more information on the decision at this time. We'll post more in about two weeks. I just wanted to make a statement here to let people know that their concerns over pool capacity have not been forgotten.
  • My next task, which I'll be working on Thursday through Sunday, is to begin the parallelization of coin assignment. Since we already publish miner information to WAMP, the data necessary to create a parallel assignment program is already available to be subscribed to. Solving this problem will make the greatest difference possible in performance, debugging this will also be the hardest thing we've ever accomplished. We will need to make a call as to whether we should use the existing test environment on this because despite whatever happens during release, it will eventually have been worth getting it out sooner so that we can increase capacity to the expected 10TH/s this will yield. Right now, I suspect the capacity limit is around 2.5-3TH/s, so that's another enormous improvement.
  • We increased the auto-assignment and manual assignment maximum difficulties to 2^20 for script and 16 for x11, up from 2^19 and 8 previously. Remember that difficulty has no effect on profitability, and using higher difficulties contributes to making the pool better for everyone by reducing server load and (in some cases, it is reported) reducing wear on miners.

I have an A4 pointed at pool right now as primary with another pool as secondary. Just noticed that it's currently mining on the secondary pool and has been for about 20 mins. The Live worker stats page shows its connected but no valid shares. The only password argument I'm using is "n=a4" with everything else being default on the miner, including it's speed.

My scrypt miners are currently mining the backup pool. X11 miners seem to be fine.

I had issues this morning. Waiting for approx 5mins helped and I did get a slot.

I woke up around 1PM est to find only 3 of the 8 miners were hashing on PH.
I rebooted the other miners, they still listed the PH site as DEAD, even though 3 miners on the same network were seeing it, connected and recording shares just fine.
After another 5 mins the 3 on the site lost it also.
About 15 mins after the restart all the miners came back online including the 3 that saw it prevously that were NOT rebooted and reconnected just fine once it was ALIVE again to connect to.

All 8 miners had same account and d=32768 and a different n= name assigned to each.

BitConnect Coin is horrible. Some coins are worse than others - Efficiency for me has been as low as 80% :( - Did some soloing on BCC though and that was absolute garbage with all the rejections. Please check that out :)

Now Gr33k is saying that, got a lot of rejected shares on reconnecting, maybe give it a try to cut out bitconnect for a while if it is profitable enough.
