here is my new script for scrypt-mined cryptocurrencies. I proved today, with block 55311 of the AmericanCoin blockchain, that random nonces can work. whether they work better than the linear approach built in to most cryptocurrency mining code is unknown to me, I just thought it would be a good idea.
the script can work with sha256d-mined currencies as well, but it is too slow. with scrypt, the Python overhead and the random number generation is insignificant, but with sha256 it is huge in comparison.
you need to set SIMPLEMINER_CONFIG to the path of the configuration file of the daemon you're running on localhost, and you need to set rpcconnect and rpcport, in addition to rpcuser and rpcpassword, in order for the script to know how to make the RPC calls.
