I've come to the conclusion that i'm probably not going to mine any coins.
I'm producing 4Mhash per second just using the bitcoin client.
I though it woud be cool to mine like 50 coins, i've no idea how long that would take but with the difficulting rising and me not hashing any faster. Yeah, i think i might finally get a block after about a century.
I guess I'll just keep my client running and churning when my computer is running (actully i've installed the bitcoin client on every computer i work with but all about the same hash rate.)
I guess i'll just be one of those nodes that do work for the network but make no coin. I can't compete with the mining pools nor the GPU miners but it's for the good of the whole.
Right now i'm happily running bitcoin client on 8 separate machines ;-)
can someone calculate how long it would actually be before i solve a block? I'd like to be depressed Thanks in advance
