It's a misunderstanding of the term solo mining.

Solo mining means you are taking on all the variance of block finding.
You are not pooling your mining efforts with anyone else (and thus are not sharing the reward)

p2pool is not in any way solo mining.

yes, I guess the proper phraseology would be "mining on an independent node", as opposed to conventional pool mining, where everyone is submitting shares to solve 1 node's block (the pool operator's node).

but I could have that completely misunderstood as well.
That's how a conventional pool works.  Everyone on the pool is attempting to solve the same block.

word, then its all cleared up. Thanks. Once I have a free weekend, i'll switch over my poor little miner from a lottery pool to p2pool.
