Well, after the botnet was banned from btcguild, a DDoS was launched to take down that pool.  I moved to eligius pool, and now it appears as if the botnet has moved over there for mining at 22GH/s.   >.>

I'm not even sure how solo mining works.  Aren't you competing with all the pools for discovering the blocks?  If so, wouldn't your chance of success, even with a 5GH/sec setup be very very small?

BTW, this is the suspected botnet: http://eligius.st/~artefact2/3/14j7N9wPPy2P2UPixzTgWJmMsUSGJAfM1Z

This account was not active until a few hours after a botnet was purged from btcguild.  This guy sprung up from nowhere and is hashing at an almost identical rate.

I would notify the admin on this forum, but it appears that I am relegated to posting on the newb forum for a while.
