Cool On the Red Rose Diner train do you mean? We still haven't done that yet ... been meaning to do it for years.

That's bad timing. We could've met up while you're over here but that's about the same time we'll be setting off for Edinburgh.

Still room for a few more people, I believe, if you (or anyone else) wants to go
(It's free to attend by the way).
The talk was brilliant! A thoroughly enjoyable event. Well worth the trip!


The talk was held in one of the lecture theatres at Napier University (about a 400 seater theatre and filled to capacity):





And this was me teaching Andreas about cryptocurrencies
(while Lyn tries hard not to fall asleep)

I have missed this but Bitmain has released overclocking firmware for S9 at the end of May. Only just tried it this morning on my 13.5 TH/s as still had not installed Braiins firmware on this one and it works as advertised 15.5TH/s in + 2TH/s mode. Not checked power consumption yet. No HW errors, it will probably do 16TH/s with some custom tweaking on Braiins firmware but this was a lot easier without messing with SD card.

Edit Checked voltages, with this firmware chips are running 9.1V, the one with Braiins is 8.7-8.9V so I expect this Bitmain firmware to have higher power consumption

One of the L3+ control board failed, tried to reload firmware from SD card without success so used board from D3 and flashed L3+ firmware on it so it's working again. Found Blissz firmware with devfee pools removed so need to install it on other L3+s that are still running stock or Blissz firmware with dev fees https://byjyww.bn.files.1drv.com/y4m...0-nodevfee.tar

I didn't realise the control boards were physically the same.

I might try that S9 firmware update when I have a spare few minutes. Thanks to the warm weather I'm down to a single S9 now, and the only reason that's still running is because it lives in one of my customer's server rooms.

I think A3 is the same as well.
