I recently wrote a
.bat script on Windows to mine Ethereum when I’m not using my gaming PC to frag noobs. I have a friend who also tries to mine cryptocurrencies but their machines have AMD processors; every once in a while, the processor and the mining executable start fighting and all mining comes to a halt.
Having the mining
.exe stop work but not kill the process is a really frustrating problem. I thought it was a Windows sleep/hibernation issue but the solution I wrote about in that post didn’t fix the problem. I went with the next best solution: killing and restarting the process after a given amount of time:
:loop start PhoenixMiner.exe -pool us1.ethermine.org:4444 -pool2 us1.ethermine.org:4444 -wal WALLET_ADDRESS -proto 3 echo "-------------------------------MINER STARTED" timeout /t 3600 >null echo "-------------------------------MINER TERMINATED, RESTARTING" taskkill /f /im "PhoenixMiner.exe" > null goto loop
This script kills the process and restarts it after an hour, regardless of if mining is running smoothly or has quit. This obviously isn’t a perfect solution; a better answer would be to create a script to listen for an error and restart the process immediately. I will contend it’s a workable solution so that mining isn’t down for an entire night!
Morphing Elements Using MooTools and CSS
MooTools: Set Style Per Media
I’d bet one of the most used MooTools methods is the
setStyle()method, which allows you to set CSS style declarations for an element. One of the limitations of MooTools’
setStyle()method is that it sets the specific style for all medias.
