I've been DASH ASIC mining (3 miners) for about 1.5 months. I have accounts with the NiceHash and SuprNova pools. I switched to the P2Pool (peer-to-peer pool) method just this evening.
I have typically powered my miners off for about 2-3 minutes per night to make recordings for another activity of mine. I am assuming that as long as I leave my P2Pool program running and simply power my miners off for a short time, I should be fine.
This got me thinking about other needs for the future. When I eventually reconfigure my setup, update my server, update it's OS, or move my mining to a new location, I am guessing that if I setup my P2Pool programs and config file the same way, and start everything back up, I should be fine.
I just want to confirm that these assumptions are correct. If not, what's the best procedure for when you do need to do the above things?
