We need nodes so payments can get processed!

Mining isn't everything. The more people have the Bitcoin client open, the easier it is to send/receive payments -- and that benefits EVERYONE, including YOU. You send/receive payments, don't you? (to cash in your Bitcoins, if nothing else)

AND the quicker/easier it is to use Bitcoin, the more users it will get -- which benefits YOU because it drives up the value (and hence, the price) of Bitcoin. 

I requested an Instant Payment from Deepbit this morning at 11:00 AM, and it's STILL sitting in my client with "0 confirms". Anyone else experiencing this?

Also, BlockExplorer seems to be down. More DDoS?

Blocks are still being created just fine.  Your problems are not related to a lack of mining power.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

How does having more nodes decrease the time to have a peyment confirmed? Afaik, confirmation time is a function of tx fee, number of pending transactions.

what txfee does deepbit set on it's outbound transfers?  If it's putting 0 then it's going to take a long time... in fact, I sent some BTC to myself with a 0 txfee and it's still showing unconfirmed for me after about seeing 30 blocks solved... that's the way it's supposed to work.

If that's true, I certainly hope he goes back to his old setting.
You'd think Tycho could afford .0005 per transfer at least... I mean, come on!

It's important to forward the port (8333) if you do this. Nodes which don't listen can't connect to each other and contribute much less to the health of the network— especially with the influx of new users.

Also make sure you're running .22 or (better) .23-rc1: the newer versions are more permissive about relaying low/no fee transactions.

Can anyone verify if these transactions have fees paid?

Yeah I've been having this problem all day. I posted here about it: http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=16461.0

It's really quite annoying when you need the coins right away.

all fine and well , but for some of us on small/slow plans/connections we cant afford the constant 100% upload usage. plus ive even had it keep uploading after ive closed the client !? i had to disconnect from the internet to stop the invisible open connections from chewing  Huh

but someone mentioned 'netlimiter' for windows that you can use to limit a program to say 5kb up, so ive installed it so i can start running the client again.

also in related topic check out http://www.getblockchain.com/ for a download archive of the current block chain (quicker than waiting on the client to fetch it)

I'm still waiting on my first confirm on that 1.02 BTC transaction (from Deepbit).

The transaction started at 11:00 AM (central time) -- it's currently 8:16!

Something is definitely wrong.

And has anyone else noticed that BlockExplorer is down?

Yeah I started mine at 4:32 PM EST, received it in my wallet at 7:19 PM EST. It's now 10:47 PM EST and it still has 0 confirmations. But I do have 8 connections. I don't understand why today transactions are taking so long.

Payments are processed by the generation of blocks, which is done by miners. Client nodes have no impact on the way payments are processed.
