Yeah it will hash 30 mh/s to 50 m/hs faster because CG miner uses memory and gui miner does not.

So you got it working?

These are perfectly safe ive been mining them for a very long time.

Wasn't novacoin premined? As far as I know it's also within 1% margin to LTC in terms of profit so it's added risk for minimal gain.

Terracoin seems like a bad copy of BTC, it still uses SHA-256 and it is generally less profitable than BTC.

The problem with many alt crytocurrencies are they perpetrate pump and dumb schemes

Stuff like Digitalcoin , mincoin, and worldcoin have a huge difficulty fluctuation and a really volatile exchange rate making me believe it's just forex traders making an altcoin ... plus unlike LTC you cannot directly swap to USD/EUR which means there's probably a loss in between when exchanging to and from BTC or other crytocurrencies

I think so. I'm seeing "Stratum from pool 0 detected new block" with an occasional "Found block for pool 0!". I can't see where it says how many shares I've done?

And the difference was way more than just 50 Mhps for me. Like guiminer wasn't using full 99% and bouncing from 450 to 650 Mhps.

cgminer is saying I'm averaging 722 Mhps with the same v and w set.

New to mining as well.
I've created a wallet on blockchain.info and created an account on multipool. I'm using GUIMiner and it's chuggin' away, reading 250~Mhash/s. Now, I log onto the website (multipool) and check my stats, but it says I'm not doing anything. WDC "spiked" up to 6Mhash/s for a bit there, but is now back down to 0. I also keep getting "Invalid Round Shares" and GUIMiner says I'm getting "stale" shares. What am I doing wrong?

Mining alt coins is extremely profitable, you don't have to trust the coin or its future, just mine some and dump it for bitcoins at cryptsy.com, btc-e.com or mcxnow.com. Just don't be dumb and dump for too little, always try to ask a bit more than the highest bidder's paying.

If you were to speculate and "save" then yeah, litecoin would be better, or so people think. You can also make a lot of money trading if you learn about that.

You're quick to discredit digital coin, did you even read the thread about it and the ideas behind it?
I don't wanna sound hostile but I don't like people spreading misinformation. Digital coin has a special difficulty algorithm that makes it be always around 100% profitability compared to bitcoin or more, depending on price and network hash rate.

What cards are you using to mine?

For 7950s you want -i 19 or -i 20, guiminer is perfectly capable but cgminer is slightly better and lets you troubleshoot your efficiency better.
I'll try to write a small guide tonight.

This is how you make money at this... TRC is always going up and down...

Digital coin is steady...

Litecoin is not going to make you that much...

This however will.

TRC isn't auto mined with port 7777, only the scrypt coins are.

It's been an hour now and the multipool website doesn't have any stats for me yet...

Ok. But I'm coming back here to bug you more if there's still nothing after a long time.
