I was mining some litecoins and found a share at difficulty "2.22G"

What the hell is G?  If 2.22M is 2.22 million, then G is...?

Creating a Bitcoin client that fully implements the network protocol is extremely difficult. Bitcoin-Qt is the only known safe implementation of a full node. Some other projects attempt to compete, but it is not recommended to use such software for anything serious. (Lightweight clients like Electrum and MultiBit are OK.)

1.1G is 1.1 billion. Or written another way:

1,100,000,000

Like a "gigashare" or something?  Would a trillion difficulty share be T for tera, and a quadrillion difficulty share be P for peta?

It's exactly that but it's called Gigahash.

It's exactly that but it's called Gigahash.

I thought a gigahash is a certain number of hash calculations, e.g. 1 gigahash/s is 1,000,000,000 hashes calculated per second.  Therefore, I think I'm just talking about one hash calculation that satisfied both the difficulties for an acceptable share value (in this particular case, d=128) and for solving a block (d=68.2M).

That's why I called it a gigashare, and I put it in quotes because I wasn't sure what else to call it.

The Giga-prefix is 109, which is 1 Billion.
