I received a payment from BTCGuild a few hours ago and it hasn't gotten a single confirmation yet. I've restarted the client and still no luck. So I tried to send a payment from deepbit. I've waited an hour so far and no payment has been received. I'm getting very few connections to the network (1 - 2 connections). I haven't changed any thing with my computer or set up so I'm not sure what the problem could be.

Any one else experiencing this problem?

How does that happen? Have we maxed out the speed that the bitcoin network can process transactions?

Is that a normal number? Or does it only happen sporadically?

How many transactions can be in a block?

Blocks are limited in size, but not in many transactions there can be. The bigger a tx, the lower priority it is. The larger a tx (value) the higher priority it is. There older the coins are, the higher the priority is.

So in this case, it's probably a small tx of newly minted coins. That means it is very low priority, and assuming btcguild didn't include a fee, it'll take a while to confirm.

And the backlog is a little high, but not bad.
