    I've decided to give this a shot and also when I get the server sorted out - the queuing will help with 60 HD. I'll let you all know how this turns out.

    Has anyone here configured Creepminer?

    I'm working to get setup on 0-100-pool.burst.cryptoguru.org however this config file for creepminer is kicking my butt.

    I save all of my plotting to .bat files and if any are incomplete just re running that .bat picks it right up where it left off.

    that must be due to creepsky removing it because it was an unfinished feature at one point in time he had 1.8 out it had some fixes and install options something caused him to pull the update and put out 1.7.16 as a point release witht he fixes minus the setup...

    So what is Creepminer?
    Also no one is mentioning, this and many other crypto's, are taking quite the hit lately.
    I don't mind the long game but besides the novelty of the HDD mining, what does this coin have going for it moving forward? Just seeing what you guys think.

    You on a 50-50 pool? Looks like you forged a block. I used to forge them regularly, about once a week, but it's been over a month for me now for the first time ever :(

    I'm small time for these times as I have maybe 11TB in my server and another maybe 11TB total across 4 other systems in my home. Their site usually only shows about 11TB in the historical data though. Not sure why. I did plot with different numeric sequences to make sure there was no redundancy or overlap. I've never forged a block myself which is why it was a nice surprise. All of my drives were just salvage drives from rigs I've scrapped. So, lots of little ones that aren't really worth using for BURST but I plan on using them for something else later. Figured until I get the time to muck with them, they can just mine...lol. That and the future they are saying that you will be able to mine and use the same space for your own stuff in the future. So, there is that.

    Yeah that's a 60/40 pool. When you have multiple miners using the same account on different machines, pools generally only report your total space for one of them, that's normal.

    I have an issue i do not understand. Hoping someone here can shed some light please.

    "error ReadFile. code = 1117
    Unexpected end of file 2618192970607026655_55000000000_30522240_30522240"

    File name matches my "J:\Plot F" which reads @4.0 sec (465.2 MB/s) CPU 0.00%

    CPU usually reads around 55%. Never had or seen this before.
    Any help or ideas or insight welcomed. :)

    Is it a corrupt file? Perhaps bad HDD...

    HDD access is fine, so I think it is fine. How would I check if the file is corrupt without re-plotting?

    Don't know if you can, but you may want to run a HDD diagnostic on the drive anyways like Data LifeGuard. Sometimes check disk and other system offerings won't do the trick. Also, make sure the drive isn't compressed. I've found a few of my drives randomly set that way and I'm guessing it was settings from drives that were in it in the past and Windows just retained a setting or something for when the new drives were put in...

    I am unable to get the Miner (Blago CPU Miner) started now. Could this be because the troubled drive holds my "Plot A"?

    Are you getting an error? Double check to make sure it isn't compressed. Since upgrading to the latest Qbundle I also have to go to the Blago directory and manually launch the executable rather than using the GUI interface.

    Yeah... even running the update multiple times doesn't always get you fully updated. I have some that continue to tell me there is an update to QBundle. I run it and it is either failing without telling me or it continues to think it needs to update. If it weren't necessary to keep upgrading due to the upcoming changes, I wouldn't bother.

    Something odd if anyone wants to comment. I have a bunch of 8TB Seagate external HDD's. Usually they take 4-5 days to plot.
    I set one up last night and went to check its progress this afternoon and it was done! I checked the file size and the drive is full. The miner recognizes it and it is mining away as we speak.
    I have done the updates but this just seems weird to me that they could have such an impact. Previously though I had always run the miner from the tools menu in Qbundle wallet. Since that was failing to function for me anymore, and thanks to the advice of Gilthanis, have been running BlagoMiner AVX2.exe on my Ryzen 1700X. Was the wallet plotter defaulting to SSE or something?

    I don't know the details of your situation, but they are preparing for the next stage of BURST's evolution. Keeping the package updated helps with the transition. At some point the plots will become somewhat usable for some type of file storing rather than dead space. It may have something to do with the new plotting.

    Ya kinda why I'm still at it. When we hit the GPU/ASIC wall and the future state of Burst, I'm hopping I made the right decision. Who knows right.

    I've decided to cease Burst Mining and am selling my remaining HDDs. FS Thread
    I don't want to derail this thread and thought I would share my FS items to you guys just in case.

    Verified Burst Miners will get additional discount off the asking price, and the discount increase with volume. Serious inquires only please.

    Thanks.

    If anyone is having trouble with the QBundle wallet updating Qbundle past version 2.0.0, close out of the wallet completely. Then go to C:\Qbundle\ and run the updater.exe file. this should fix the issue. It has for me so far.

    Edit: That also addresses the issue with the wallet not being able to launch the Blago miner application.

    I seem to be stuck on 3/30 not downloading further... I thought I'd open my wallet for the first time in months to see what my balance was.

    After updating, many people have theirs stuck. Half of my boxes were. I had to click on Datablase and then bootstrap chain to download a newer one. Then it updated fine afterwards.

    left it up overnight and it wen nowhere so yep doing that import now. hopefully my balance is way higher now. I've considered several times buying more drives but just haven't been willing to put up the cash while the entire coin market was tanking. I'm selling some GPUs and preparing for summer so some more drives may be a reasonable place to move some money.

    Well, if you have any resources to spare, out DC team is in need of more recruits right now. We have a very large challenge coming up in a few days that is the biggest challenge of each year. If interested, chime in here https://hardforum.com/threads/9th-annual-boinc-pentathlon-hosted-by-seti-germany.1957969/ and we can get you caught up to speed. The first project which is CPU only has been announced and so now is the time to start prepping..lol.

    Edit: I guess it's back, is this a common thing for mods to just be able to delete reddit pages?

    not to nitpick but this post does not belong here. To mine burst hdd space not cpu or gpu power is really available or stocked with rigs for this...

    btw total gains so far 2500$ usd

    Yeah I have to agree it didn't belong. My gains are more modest, if I sold it all it would be worth around $480, I'm just shy of 20k burst.

    I'm still HODL'ing all of mine. Right around 250k now.

    A few days ago I switched to a fork of the Blago miner that is capable of reading both PoC1 and PoC2 plots and I'm about 1/3 of the way done converting my 108 plot files to PoC2. I'm running 20 instances of the converter in parallel. Will be interesting to see if scan speed truly do double once they are all PoC2.

    I posted about my experience here.

    Took me about a week for convert my 108 plots totaling 417TB. I ran up to 16 converters in parallel (max I could do with 64GB of RAM). Here's a shot of all the converted plots:

    poc2scantime.png

    I already have my miner config file set to switch to PoC2 once we hit block 502,000, which should be in about 4 days time I think. At which point scan times should quadruple, and network difficulty should drop quite a bit, depending on how many miners have converted their plots already.

    As I understand it, once the hard fork occurs at block 502,000, all miners still running PoC1 plots, will begin to fail and drop off the network.

    From what I understand if the pool supports poc2 your poc1 plots will still be minable it will just be slower than if you convert them

    Ah I think you might be right Lunas. I didn't consider that possibility although they do not speak about here here (skip to the last paragraph).
