Just keep waiting until you get all the way up to just over 134,000 on the block counter.  Then you will be up to date and ready to go!

1. Don't panic. Your Bitcoin client is doing what it's supposed to.
2. Wait for the block count to stop increasing, at 134118 as of this post.
3. Go get some free Bitcoins here.

Great link Oldminer, thanks!  Anyone looking to learn the basics of everything bitcoin, this is a good place to start.  The Forums are good too, you just have to look a little harder.   Wink
