Apr 17 '13 at 9:13 comment added o0'. @TomvanderWoerdt that could be an answer
Apr 17 '13 at 9:12 comment added o0'. @StevenRoose difficulty is adjusted only once every two weeks, isn't it?
Apr 17 '13 at 8:27 comment added Steven Roose When you can terminate some of the big pools, the difficulty will lower, making it even more easy to reach 51%. But still, gaining the 51% cannot be underestimated, even if big pools are temporarily down, you will need an enormously high budget to reach 51%.

Apr 16 '13 at 20:22 comment added Tom van der Woerdt There's no cooperation involved in mining, and they won't be trying the same hashes because (for example) they have different transaction pools and (possibly) different destination addresses. Mining pooling is just like non-pooled mining, except that the revenue is spread over time instead of getting blocks of 25BTC.
Apr 16 '13 at 20:17 comment added Massimo But solo miners, however powerful, have very little chances of winning blocks against a big farm/pool. They don't cooperate and will on average all be trying the same hashes, while a farm/pool can distribute work and operate much more efficently.
Apr 16 '13 at 20:09 comment added Nick ODell Most mining clients will fall back on non-pooled mining if they can't contact any of their preferred pools.
