The Dymaxion is coming.
You can try to leave, but will you escape The Dymaxion? It may be too late for that.
As you said, it doesn't really matter a great deal if you had overlapped, but I don't think you have.
Your first plot is (eg) starting at 0 and plotting 100, so it's actually plotting nonces 0 to 99 rather than 1 to 100. So the next one's starting point should be 100.
I think most mining software warns you on startup if you're overlapping anyway, doesn't it?
Actually, looking back through my bash history, I didn't run install-poco.sh for this version.
I did the following:
apt-get install python
apt-get install python-pip
pip install conan
pip install --upgrade pip
conan install . --build=missing -s compiler.libcxx=libstdc++11
Some of that may be irrelevant or need changing for your operating system though.
Creepminer is really good in my experience - I haven't used any other miners on Linux but it seems to do the job for me! You just need to get the 'intensity' and 'maxPlotReaders' parameters right to optimise your read times - they should add up to the number of available threads on your CPU.
Bloody hell, @Jaxblack got there before me, but I've been trying to post this for 20 minutes so here it comes anyway.
Looks like pool.burstcoin.space gives 60% of the block payment to the winner of the block, and 40% is shared out between the miners based on historic performance.
This gives block winners a bonus, but if you're not likely to win a lot of blocks, you might find payouts to be disappointing.
I prefer to mine on 0/100 pools, where the actual block winner gets nothing, but everyone who's trying their damn best gets compensated based on historical work.
I'm on the latter; at the moment I've got 44TB and I'm getting around 100 burst a day - obviously you've got to commit to the pool for a while to build up your average percentage before the payouts get to that level.
You need to decide what sort of miner you are. Do you want a massive jolt of happiness when you win a block, say once a month (if that), but tiny dribbles of disappointment the rest of the time (60/40)? Or do you want a warm blanket of comfort for most of your mining life, punctuated with bitter pangs of regret and self-loathing when you do win a block and you're not fully rewarded for it (0/100)?
There you go dude! No need to pay it back, give it to someone else who's starting out.
If you specified the starting nonce and the number of nonces, then it should continue plotting the same file.
However if you set the number of nonces to be zero so that the file fills all available space on the drive, you will need to change the 0 in your .bat file to match the number of nonces, which you can find in the filename of the file which has been created.
Enjoy your delicious burst. Don't return them to me, help somebody else out later on.
Correct, unless you didn't specify the number of nonces the first time - in which case you have to alter the '-n' parameter to match the file it created. Otherwise it will keep creating zero-length files because it thinks you want to start filling the remaining space again.
You didn't specify a number of nonces the first time, so xplotter just filled the space. It determined the number of nonces to do that.
In your filename,
3440627 is the starting nonce and the file is eventually going to contain 5845680 when complete.
I think it's shown twice in the filename to represent the fact that it will be optimized.
Try running the following:
XPlotter_avx.exe -id 125495405788627XXXXX -sn 3440627 -n 5845680 -t 8 -path D:\plots -mem 2G
And it should pick up where it left off
