Digital Ocean performance
« on: November 16, 2013, 07:52:00 PM »

Hi guys,,

I just want some performance feedback on droplets with DO.

I can't seem to get over 50% CPU usage.

Has anyone else experienced this?  If so, how did you fix this?

Thanks

Yes i found the same.  Max 65% of CPU :(

I wonder if anyone managed to get full potential out of it?

A second drop means more money.  And i've worked out that @ 65% cpu won't make you much PTS when it gets hard on Sunday.

Mark, how did solo mining go?  Any luck?  And luck with the lost BTC?

no luck on the solo so jumping between pools and cloud mining at the moment.

the hacked 4.5 bitcoin are gone for good, both transactions gone to an address with no other transactions and can still see them sitting there.

Complete low level format of my SDD and new passwords all around - still shit myself everytime I have a few bitcoin sitting in there now though

Mark, you should look into getting a dedicated device (I use a 10" netbook with wifi and bluetooth turned off at the system live with Ubuntu, like $220 from Amazon) to act as an offline wallet, and then you should switch to www.bitcoinarmory.com and run your online computer without spending keys.  Whenever you want to spend BTC you do the transaction on your online computer but instead of send you can only hit save which puts it on some sort of storage, you walk the usb stick or whatever over to the offline computer, the transaction shows up you click sign type in your password, it saves it to the usb stick, you walk it over to the online computer put the stick in and click the "broadcast transaction" button, select the TX from the storage and the TX is done.

If you keep the computers near each other its a two minute process and impossible to be hacked because there simply are no keys to recover.
Before you say the price of PTS is too high, take a look at theThe Reason.  Protoshares are an entirely new type of Cryptocurrency, one that pays to hold.
