    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.
