Hey, I've been solo mining since June 12th. I copied the wallet on my mining server over to my laptop so I would be able to see when I solved a block. I managed to successfully solve a block for which I received 50 BTC. Later on I received a couple pending payments from BTC Guild. Since then I've managed to solve two more blocks, but for these I only received 0.36299659 BTC and 0.12603918, respectively.

Does anyone know what's going on? Where are my bitcoins...?  Sad

If you really solved three blocks in 16 days, then your the luckiest solo miner around.

BTC guild payments? Eligius, if it says generated. Some pools now split generated blocks to reduce fees.

Also, try getting a nw copy of the wallet, and running -rescan... Just in case! Cheesy

At 10Gh/s, not really.

I started out with pooled mining. Had to switch to solo mining due to network bottlenecks slowing my miners down.

Eligius, if it says generated. Some pools now split generated blocks to reduce fees.

Yeah, I mined with Eligius too for a while. Had half my miners on BTC Guild and the other half on Eligius. They're all definitely solo now.

Maybe I will. Not too hopeful though. I checked the balance on the server directly and it matches the balance shown on my laptop.  Sad

I really, really want those bitcoins to be recoverable. At the very least I want to know where they went!

Eligius is the reason - They pay with generation, so it shows up as if it's a block, except ypu  only get a share of it, not the full 50. The reason you got it now is that tehy pay out on any amount after a week of inactivity. Smiley

so you solved 1 block only Wink

that eligius payment could also be one that you got when they changed their payout system a couple of days ago. they paid you one time even if less than 7 days have passed and amount < 1 btc. explains the two other "generated msg". I got one myself and was wondering too until i saw the info on the eligius website.
