So, i guess you can call me a noob at this.. I thought i had it under controll but then when i tried to transfer some of my BTC out of my Deepbit.net account i failed..
Everything should be fine since you are seeing the blockexplorer page.
Your payment should be shown instantly if your bitcoin client if running. If not, you should start it and ensure that all the blocks are downloaded from network (the counter in the client's status bar).
In the worst case it may be delayed by a few hours.
