How to generate bitcoins with the application? According to this article I've pasted below, it is possible to generate bitcoins using the spare processing power when your computer is idle?
(Very slowly, of course)
But I don't see the option in my application when I go to Settings --> Options?http://pzxc.com/how-to-get-started-with-bitcoins
How do I get bitcoins?
You can download the Bitcoins application for Windows, Mac or Linux. There is nothing to configure; once installed the program automatically generates a bitcoins address for your account. You can get bitcoins either by selling goods and services for them, or by contributing CPU resources from your machine to the project, which are used to generate the cryptographic hashes the system is built on. Turn on Settings -> Generate Coins, and when your system is idle it will use your unused processor cycles to calculate hashes for the project. It takes a very long time to generate bitcoins this way, but it costs you nothing because your system was idle anyway.
