RE: Mining Setbacks
What miner are you using? If you're using Urays miner it tends not to send the correct plot size to the pool, so the pool has to guess based on your submissions. I had 26TB and one time I submitted 2 deadlines that solved tghe block very close to each other and the pool said I had like 50 or 60TB.
Also, if each machine is mining the same account numeric ID to the same pool, then the pool doesn't aggregate the plot sizes it just picks one and displays that.
Don't trust what the pool says in any case. If you're getting through reading your plots and are getting DLs submitted, then everything is fine.
RE: Ubuntu mining difficulty
I mine exclusively on linux
the linux wallet is a daemon, meaning it accepts API calls etc but it doesn't give you all the functionality of the windows AIO wallet.
For plotting I always just mounted my drives as Samba shares then plotted to them from my windows PC (because it's the one with the GPU) -- it's very easy to do just mount the samba share as a network drive in windows then use the GPUplotter (heaps of guides on that)
For mining on linux, I have found that creepminer is defintely the best
So just do:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade -y
sudo apt-get install git screen build-essential libssl-dev
#download and install POCO: https://github.com/Creepsky/creepMiner/wiki/Compilation-&-Installation-on-Debian-Linux
git clone https://github.com/Creepsky/creepMiner
sudo make install
edit the config file in bin/config
then to run just do
[Experiment] Mining DVDs
Ok, so I was bored and browsing amazon looking for cheap drives when I looked over and saw that I had a stack of 100 4.4Gb DVDs that I paid $5 for from a yard sale. So I thought why not see if I can mine them.
When I shop for drives I usually am happy to pay $50AUD per TB
So this is 100 x 4.4Gb = 440Gb for $5
Bringing my $/Tb to $11.36
So then the question is: does it work?
I just copied some plots from a network share to a blank disk in Windows Explorer:
Then burn to disk:
Took 4 minutes to burn to disk -- that won't be good for the deadlines.
Now time to try mining.
I'm using Blagominer latest with an FX8350 CPU
Woo! It actually works. No deadlines -- what a surprise but Blago didnt' report the speed cause it happened so quickly
Check out Jminer:
Yay only 2s to read through the 4Gb drive.
Now All I need to do is get a sweet DVD changer like this one:
And I'll have like 1.6Tb of super cheap mining space
RE: Which Burst Wallet Gives You The Most Trouble?
I just run a wallet daemon on my NAS then I can just navigate to it from any computer or tablet at home at 192.168.1.x:8125 and access from anywhere and I never close it so it just stays synced. never had a problem.
What is going on with BURST right now?
I've been super frustrated with BURST lately (and sunk a lot of time money and resources into it!)
The AIO wallet almost never works.
The burstcoin.info block explorer is down
forum.burst-team.us is taking forever to respond in chrome
pool.burst-team.us is down
(I've tried all these things on multiple devices / browsers and having the same problem)
Is anyone else experiencing these issues?
Is there some kind of attack going on?
Is it all a coincidence?
Or am I just doing it all wrong?
