    Most people with Radeons don’t even bother to install OpenCL. BTW, scrypt miner needs to be configured manually in order to run fast.

    The upgrade would do the install.

    Very clear and transparant 🙂

    Very informative.

    is there something happening with attack? i am seeing trouble connecting to two different pools and the total hash# is down and the FTC hash# on coinotron is down alot


  • Regular Member | Tip sheepson

    ftc.d2.cc pool is working just fine, I also have trouble reaching http://www.coinotron.com/ so it seems coinotron might have some troubles…


  • | Tip Piedaddy

    people talking about attacks…is it true or bogus?


  • | Tip meetrat1

    Something odd is going on right now, most pools are down and my deposit to btc-e hasn’t been credited at 16 confirms. I am dedicating hashrate right now to help counteract the attack that is likely happening right now I hope others do as well.

    The 16 confirms isn’t unusual… last week, I had more than that until they eventually confirmed it.

    Oh ok good to know, thanks. Although it seems as though something is up given that most ftc pools seem to be down.

    The pools are something I don’t know about… I’m shooting our Miner leads and Bushstar a message. The additional confirmations from BTC-e are to protect possible attacks.

    I think summat could be up.

    I have found no blocks all day and now the block that I did mine has died too. Started mining back on Serraz pool and lost a block there too. Been over 2 hours since finding a successful block.

    On the other hand… Could be crappy luck. :-\


  • Regular Member | Tip Nutnut

    Coinotron has posted a news update stating that ftc is under attack too.

    The network hash rate has gone from 600Mhash to 1Ghash in the last few mins.


  • | Tip pyxis

    Someone wants to move a lot of feathercoin, probably via an exchange.

    wow, thats some speed

  • | Tip justabitoftime

    Correctly if I’m wrong, but in response to the last attack, the following occurred:

    50 confirms on BTC-E
    100 on cryptonit.


  • | Tip justabitoftime

    I plan to meet with Bush and pool-owners to figure out what we can do to help mitigate these DDOS attacks. As Feathercoin starts climbing, I expect to see more attempts on the coin.

    yeap, but looking at the blockchain no large amounts are being moved, maybe its someone we pissed off, showing off with their 1/2Ghash power trip.


  • Regular Member | Tip Nutnut

    How hard is it for an ltc pool (or any other scrypt pool) to swing their hashes to ftc for a short while?
