@RichBC There's only so much that can be done against a DDoS - I'll be moving the forums host to a new, unpublished IP, but unfortunately the pools do not operate properly behind CF, so will remain vulnerable
@ZapbuzZ Not at all. And sorry I couldnt reply to this earlier (With forums being silly and all that)
It tends to be luck of the draw really. We starting to find more blocks as more miners show up, but at the time you joined, we were averaging about 8 blocks every 10 days (we found quite a few blocks last few days actually.) That would be 1 block we win for every 800, so the numbers you saw there were not unreasonable for our pool.
That being said, a few more miners have joined and we now have found 17 blocks in last 10 days, which is about 1 every 211 blocks now.
There are 2 strange things that I noticed these last days on my Burst address :
It is the 2nd time my address sends automatically a 1 Burst fee to the 'Burst4All Pool Main'. It seems to be a fee for receiving something but on the meantime I didn't gain anything yet... So I wonder what is going on ?
each time a bit after, I get this message :
'You are most likely on a fork (You have forged the last 10 blocks).'
What does this mean ?
Note my Burst address is :
@rds I can't change the program - that's the issue. I made one tiny change to it a couple of years back, it took me 2 days to figure out the command line to compile it - the command line was over 800 characters long. What I'm doing is setting the auto payout threshold very high, then when I want to trigger the payout dropping it back to 300. The pool still does the payouts, the manual part is that I can control when they happen.
i´m in to burst mining since a month now and most of the time I "tried" to mine on your server, because
I like it "when" it runs. But I can´t remember, that I mined 3 days in a row without any problems. I wasted so many Burst an kw/h while sleeping and thinking everything runs ok, only to find out the other morning that this server has hung up again.
I don´t expect it run always because I know Burst is more or less in beta right now but this server has severe problems.
This is not a " gimme my moneyZ back !!11" rant, I just want this to be spoken out. As for now I will mine somewhere else.
