I have a bad internet connection, it craps out for a couple of minutes a couple times a day. If I have two miners running on my GPU, one pointed at a pool and one pointed at my own bitcoin -server (low aggression), will my bitcoin client still be able to generate a block if on the off chance the GPU finds the right hash while the internet is down?  I dont like the feeling of my GPU sitting idle, and I dont want to be wasting electricity on pointless hashing either. Thanks

So if there is any new blocks generated during the time I lose the internet connection then it is pointless to mine for an offline client?

Basically to be any value I would have to lose the internet connection, find the right hash to generate a block and come back online all before any block on the network is generated?

yep, thats why we use LP

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.
