Hi...I only discovered BitCoin mining 3 days ago and decided to join Slush's pool.

I have been mining with them for 2 days now at an average of 25 Mhash/s. I know that's pretty week and that the electricity cost greatly out weighs what I will earn 100 fold; but still it is interesting to me, so I will continue to mine until I reach a few bitcoins (Which will probably take a few months).

My question is this though.

I have noticed that every time I get a share my score rating increases a little and ergo my estimated earning increases with each recent share obtained, and if a share hasn't been earned in a few minutes the earnings decrease, but what happens to the score rating/estimated earnings for the person who actually solves and finishes the block?

Say I am the person who solves the blockchain for Slush's pool, does my score increase alot more than it would for finding "Shares" (Whatever shares are and how they're found)?.

What I am basically asking is will I get a "fairer" payout than the 0.00029045 I am earning at every solved block and get say a 0.1 earning or something, or is it still just distributed based on "Shares"?

I think it would be more sound to to more to the person who actually solved the block, does this happen?

Thanks.

Oh and I am running an Nvidia 635m graphics card, and it reaches temperatures of up 75 celsius, Is this too much for it to handle? Is it above it's threshold?

Thanks again, from a Newbie.   Grin

1) No, there's no "bonus" for being the worker drone that finds the golden honey nugget and brings it to the queen bee.
2) Stop mining on your laptop GPU. 25Mhash isn't even worth the damage/wear you are doing to your GPU and nearby components inside your laptop. It's not even earning you enough to cover the extra electricity being consumed running the GPU at a high workload for long periods of time.
3) If you want to mine, pre-order a ButterFly Labs ASIC miner. They start at $149USD+shipping. They haven't started shipping yet. Many folks consider BFL's ASICs to be vaporware and are convinced they'll never ship and we're all gonna lose our pre-order deposits/payments. Do some research and decide if you wanna eat a little risk and get on the ASIC bandwagon.

Howdy.

Another dumb question, to hang proudly in my "Great Hall of Dumbness". What kills these devices? Heat? Electron erosion? Tunneling fatigue? Seriously, I thought electronic  devices pretty much lasted forever, I have items with chips in them that still function after thirty plus years. I mean, I'm not crying over my GPU's, here in a month they'll be worthless if they're not already, but my CPU I'd like to keep (no, I don't CPU mine, for that and other obvious reasons), but I'm just curious why I keep seeing references  to "destroying" or "wear" of GPU's and CPU's. I do a lot of ray-tracing, am I killing my machine doing that also? I know nothing lasts forever...

At 25 mh/s you will make 0.12 BTC per month, at current rates. However, expect the difficulty to increase massivley in the next few months.

Regardless of whether BFL ships, other companies are starting to ship ASIC. That era is now here.
