Exactly why are you "desperate" to get a Bitcoin?  Everyone who has coins did something to get them.  Kind of like everyone who has money, did something to get it (even if you were just born into it).

Your options are:

1)  Wait a month and continue mining.  While it may take a month to generate a full coin, by working in a pool you'll get fractional coins continuously, and you will be able to send those fractional coins to see how the network works.
2)  Take actual money and purchase coins.
3)  Do something to earn coins.  I've done consulting for two different folks here on the boards and been paid 14 BTC for that work.

Begging has a very low success rate.  Lower even than CPU mining.

With 500 KH/s you will get a very, very small number of bitcoins in a pool. It will take you probably 3 weeks to get 0.01 BTC. And the electricity will almost certainly cost more than you get out of it. OTOH, if you are using green energy then by all means, please go for it. Smiley Or more seriously, you can measure the difference in wattage and see how much energy mining actually costs.

Otherwise... just by Bitcoin, right?

Trading what in particular?

trading bitcoins on Mt.Gox

Your options are:

1)  Wait a month and continue mining.  While it may take a month to generate a full coin, by working in a pool you'll get fractional coins continuously, and you will be able to send those fractional coins to see how the network works.
2)  Take actual money and purchase coins.
3)  Do something to earn coins.  I've done consulting for two different folks here on the boards and been paid 14 BTC for that work.

1: A Month wont get me anywhere near a full coin, it will take 16 months for me to get a full coin.
2: Ive tried that, but Mt.Gox wont accept paypal, and being in Australia I don't have any of the other payment methods available
3: I have no useful abilities that I can offer over the internet. (not at this point in time, anyway)

So how do you get money to Paypal then?  I don't see how anyone could have no bank account at all.

thats exactly my problem. i have no money, apart from the $13.38 in my paypal, and about $20 in cash. this is why i was so desperate to try bitcoin mining/trading, but seeing as my card sucks and i dont have the money to buy a new one, trading is the only option (if i can get funds into the account somehow)

Trading isn't going to net you much money at all, at best a few % per trade.

yea it builds up over time, and its better than nothing. plus with the current rate being 1BTC = ~$13 a few percent isnt that bad, itll build up. and if your trading a number of coins at a time then its better still.

Dwolla takes AUD, Mt. Gox can be funded with Dwolla.  Problem solved.

3: I have no useful abilities that I can offer over the internet. (not at this point in time, anyway)

Then get some.  Learn HTML, CSS, XML, XSS.  There are tons of resources online to do so.  Then offer to code a site for someone, or work on HTML coding.  Saying, "I have no useful abilities" is just an excuse.

i said previously that i dont have any of the payment methods available, that includes dwolla

Then get some.  Learn HTML, CSS, XML, XSS.  There are tons of resources online to do so.  Then offer to code a site for someone, or work on HTML coding.  Saying, "I have no useful abilities" is just an excuse.
i didnt say i have no useful abilities at all, i said i had none which i can offer over the internet. its not my abilities thats the problem, its my internet - its too slow for me to provide any useful services over it. i already know VB and C# and a small amount of C++, but with slow internet im not much use for remote services. i also said "at this point in time" as well.

no one is gonna give u $14
not with that attitude, they wont
