I have two simple questions and I didn't find any answers in the forum yet:
1. If I solo mine where do I see I if I have calculated blocks and if hit the right one (poclbm on Ubuntu 11.04)? I mean under pool mining I got shares and blocks assigend from the pool and I can see something happen.
2. If I'm lucky and got one, how does it work that I get 50 BTC as a compensation? I mean there is no transaction from A to B. In pool mining the pool calculates my share on the calculated block (PPS, Props, ...) and then I can easily transfer the BTCs to my wallet.
