That's the best share you have found so far.  To find a block at current difficulty you need to meet or exceed 103,880,340,815.

Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
A: Top-posting.

That sentence makes no sense to me.  But variable difficulty has no bearing on solo mining.

Pools set a higher difficulty for accepting shares to reduce bandwidth.  If a pool set your miner difficultly to 1000 then that means approximately one share out of a thousand will exceed the 1k diff and the pool will pay that share as if it were 1000 diff 1 shares.
