So I am using the guiminer with a cpu. And I am trying to use the slush pool. When I open the miner it automatically selects this pool. But on the site www.mining.bitcoin.cz
they say to use the new url: http://api.bitcoin.cz:8332
. Is this the same as the one sleceted by the miner or should I change it?
And when that's done, I start mining. Does that mean I have entered the pool? And when a block is found, how will I know, and how long is this going to take? I know my share wille probable be very small.
When it is running, it says it is "connecting". Is this allright.
