RE: I got hacked and lost a fortune
@dworf Thanks for sharing your experience. I'm really sorry to hear that this has happened to you; the robbing scum bags will get sorted out by karma! Not much consolation I know, but I appreciate you sharing your misfortune so that others may benefit.
RE: I got hacked and lost a fortune

in the total list of losses was an amount of burst:

I repost it here because of the little change that someone is able to identify the criminal who did it. The bounty for recovering funds is 10%.
Thanks guys - stay safe - hope that this shit does not happen to others
Do you have any solid idea how it happened? I'm wondering about Reward Assignment via random website and entering seed?
RE: adam guerbuez
All I can say that as a new-ish miner, this kind of incident is just confusing. I don't know my setup well enough yet to know how to differentiaite between when my miner throws errors at me (my fault), or the pool is sending errors at me (not my fault). Sometimes it's a bit of both (that's a bad situation when I'm chasing issues that don't exist on my end). Anyway, I've learned a lot. Is it over now?
RE: Odroid XU4 Scavenger ARM7 - won't detect plot files - no plots found - SOLVED!
Just as an update to this, it turns out that the arm7 devices don't support direct_io.
In the config.yaml file the following line needs to be set to false (NOT true) as per the default.
hdd_use_direct_io: false # default true
As soon as I did this, with some guidance from the dev, it all worked flawlessly and has been running for a few days without hitch.
Odroid XU4 Scavenger ARM7 - won't detect plot files - no plots found - SOLVED!
I've been mining on Windows 10 for about a month, and I've plotted up all my drives in Windows 10 (64 bit). I also mining on an old Linux machine simultaneously, with worse (slower) hardware. Suffice to say I like to think I'm getting some good experience at this across different platforms.
Recently I got my hands on a Odroid and so far so good. Debian installed, sees my external drives, got an arm7 compatible version of Scavenger - all good I thought.
However, I can't get it to recognise any of the plot files. I've had it working fine on Windows and Linux, but on this Arm7 device!? Nah, not yet.
It sees the folders (so I know my config.yaml is okay). I'm providing full mouted paths such as:
My plots are large. Single 5.45TB files...could this be the problem? That's what I thought....but can't be, because Scaveneger tells me that no plots files exist for its own test-data plots, and they're tiny.
Does anyone have any Odroid expereince here?
Why is Scavenger reporting that no plot files exist, even though it can see the folders?
If I take the same drives with more or less the same configuration onto Windows (the paths are slightly different), it works OOTB.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
RE: Is it possible to resume a partial XPlotter plot with Turboplotter instead?
@haitch Thanks as ever for a prompt and informed reply. At least I now know not to waste time trying.
Is it possible to resume a partial XPlotter plot with Turboplotter instead?
I'm currently plotting with XPlotter and only 1 CPU thread becuase the write speed to my hard-drive is so slow that it is just a waste to run the CPU any faster.
However, I did the same with Turboplotter and it was much quicker.
I want to stop XPlotter and finish it with Turboplotter, if this is possible.
I notice that XPlotter files do not have the .plotting extension.
Is my goal possible? Realistic? Achievable?
RE: Effective Capacity. 0-100 pool
@tedrogers I must also add at this point, that as a relatively new miner myself, even though Burst claims to be ASIC resistant and greener (which it definitely is!), it is not "who has the most money to buy the most TiB" resistant. This narks me off. I enjoy it, and I have put a bit of money into this, but I can never see myself having a PiB farm purely because of the massive financial outlay. Seems that if you've got a lot of servers already (ahem, I'm looking at you 'West Coast Servers', but there are other giants too) then you're already onto a winner and will smash everything else.
