I've only been mining for about a day now, and first went solo just to see how it went. I knew in a day I'd almost assuredly get nothing, but, had to try. Anyways, I joined a pool (btcguild), and I use guiminer to mine. Seems to be working fine, but I was wondering how I could set it up so that if for some reason the server is dropped (on my end or theirs) I could have guiminer automatically start solomining? I've searched through the forums a bit, and any help is appreciated. Thank you in advance

Two options:
you can set up a second miner on another pool and run both at the same time.  Adding "-f[some low number]" to the one you want to be your primary and "-f[some higher number]" to the one you want as a backup.  I've read -f5/-f50 and, I think, -f20/-f80.  This will be for two pools.  I've had stability problems trying to use this.
you can also use this flexible mining proxy: http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=5506.0  I have no experience with this.
