Hi

 I've been using bitcoin since I saw it slashdotted back in July. I installed it on my machine at work, which is always on, so it is always running. The machine I am using is an Intel quad core Q6600 @ 2.40 Ghz. I have 2 GB or RAM. I am running Windows XP. My average Hash rate is 2252 khash/s.

I installed the bitcoin client on July 11.
On July 13 I generated 50 BTC
On July 15 I generated 50 BTC
On July 20 I generated 50 BTC

I now have 150 BTC. Since then I haven't generated a single bitcoin!!!

I used the calculator here: http://www.alloscomp.com/bitcoin/calculator.php
With the folliowing info:
Difficulty Factor   712.88486455
Hash Target   3.78175167291E+64
Hash Rate (khps)   2252

Probability   Time
Average   15 days, 17 hours, 40 minutes
50%           10 days, 21 hours, 46 minutes
95%           47 days, 3 hours, 24 minutes

Since July 20th it has been 57 days, and I haven't generated anything. Is this strange to anyone? Why am I not getting anything at all?

Even if you use Bitcoin through Tor, the way transactions are handled by the network makes anonymity difficult to achieve. Do not expect your transactions to be anonymous unless you really know what you're doing.

Have you upgraded past the 0.3.9 version since then. If not, you will not be able to generate a valid block.

Thanks for that info!

I upgraded from 0.3.2 beta to 0.3.12 beta, and as a plus, my hash rate is now 4410 khash/s!

I wish I would have found that out soon. What a waste of time!!
