Sure... find your API token and a link to your personal stats below the worker section in the dashboard. I guess I need to put it elsewhere to clean up the template a bit. But I'll fix this later on. If you have any other ideas or need anything else, just let me know ;)

And of course I'll add some more documentation later. But as you asked and seem to know how to handle JSON, I hope it's quite self-explanatory.

Thanks man! I tend to find myself checking stats semi-obsessively, so I figure this weekend I'll try and make time to throw together a chrome extension that displays them on a server-friendly update cycle.

Everybody don't forget to withdraw your NMC! At the next difficulty change the payout fee will be reset to 2%. See an estimation here: http://dot-bit.org/tools/nextDifficulty.php Again thank you all very much for beta testing!

Re: [masterpool.eu] No invalid blocks - Direct payout - 2% F

As I wast asked several times why there are now BTC options besides the NMC options on the pool I'd like to explain a bit. The BTC options all have n/a values at the moment. This is because it is not completely ready for mining. The pools frontend is being prepared for the upcoming http://dot-bit.org/MergedMining. I want to offer it from the start to pool members (proposed for block 24k). You can have a look into a very early version of merged-mining on the alpha status pool https://alpha.masterpool.eu. MasterPool will offer a smooth migration path to merged-mining for its members. With merged-mining getting possible your hashing power will "automagically" be merged into mining BTC and NMC, No need to change ports or stuff. Just keep mining. 8-)

But in order to get things up and running there will be some changes in the frontend. The pool however will have no downtime. No need to stop mining. The webinterface changes will be rolled out on the fly. You shouldn't even notice them (beside the fact that the webinterface changes slightly). If you have any questions on this issue don't hesitate to ask ;)

Do I get it right, that merged mining wont be available until block 24k?

How long will this take, 3-6 months?

At the moment therte is nobody who disagrees with block 24k. But it is difficult to estimate the time it takes. Next Siffivulty change is at: http://dot-bit.org/tools/nextDifficulty.php. After Difficulty decreases perhaps we again have a surge again taking 3-4 days for the next difficulty change. If we then manage to get the next difficulty change we already are at 24k...

IMHO 3-6 month is a pretty good estimation.

I disagree with the 24,000 block change. It is a bad idea for reasons I've made clear in the "merged mining block changeover date" thread.

Cant find that thread.

I dont know much about the technical implementation of merged mining, but I just cant wait to get paid twice for every share I give to the pool, 6 months seem a little long to me.

But we were quite lucky with the last three rounds on masterpool.eu

Is the merged mining alpha testnet pool still functional? I'd like to test...

Unfortunately not. I tried to roll out RC2 today but had issues with namecoind segfaulting. I'm waiting for response in the merged mining thread. However if this doesn't get sorted out tomorrow I'll reset the alpha pool to a known good version. I'll let you know as soon as it is functional again.
