OK, I know how this happened. I had an account that I did not realize I had to activate, I created my initial plot based on that account. I then reinstalled as I had a firewall issue with the local wallet. I then created a new account and proceeded from there. This was a total newbie mistake. I have a decent understanding of the process now. If anyone needs help getting started, hit me up and I can help. :)
i think it goes up when it makes use of your plots but why it goes down? what is the connection quality reported by blago miner? you could be lagging over network perhaps due to geographical location? what is your cpu? ensuring the miner is only thing running on your pc will yield maximum benefit especially on slower networks but I found the same issue on that particular pool once so I switched to crypto guru less network hops to a pool means less latent much like gaming servers closer the better. Constantly refreshing the pool page messes with it too btw so best to leave it for a day then look at it. I mean its not gonna run away is it :)
the app called turboplotter9000 can check your plots to see if they are consistent that maybe that causes your share to lower?
@jretropie said in Intel Xeon 8180 - 150-200k nonces/min:
plotting speed probably even double if he use AVX2. (Notice that he use xplotter 1.0 only support avx.
good catch on that, I never checked to see if it put 1.1 in my plotting screen when I tried the AVX2 version but the performance difference between AVX is stunning, you're right he just might double his performance by getting the latest version...
now if only someone had direct contact with him to let him know, it might change his views on some things and get him even more excited for burst, so he does something other than make crazy hand gestures about it heh...
@sin544260 said in Want 2 Burst coins to start Mining:
I put your address in at faucet.burstpay.net and it sent you one!
Don't set an account name yet, use that coin to set your reward assignment. When you've earned some coins you can set a name if you like.
If you want to pay it forwards once you're rich, you can restock the faucet by sending a few to BURST-ENPB-KM83-BZP7-7DM6Y

Also checking the specs of my mobo it is SATA II, it wont affect the speed if I connect SATA III disks?
SATA-2 has a (theoretical) throughput of 300 MB/s, 11 times what your system does per thread/disk; 27 MB/s.
You may chuck the bare HDDs from their USB enclosures (voiding warranty).
Awesome, thank you very much :)
Ill buy 4 more SATA HDDs and use full potential of current setup then.
