Hey everyone.  Before making an investment in a mining rig I want to make sure I can configure my normal computer to pool mine properly.  I created an account and miner on BTCguild and bitclocker and have the same issue for both pools.  the program seems to initially connect fine, and it's processing about 4 MHash/s, but the console says "Problems communicating with bitcoin RPC 0 2" multiple times.  My Mhash rate fluctuates minimally around 4, and this error just pops up over and over.  I only saw a message that BTCguild accepted my share once, right after starting up GUIMiner, but I haven't seen that again.  When I log into BTC guild I have 2 shares and on bitclockers I have 8, even though I only saw it accept once.  The one time I saw it accept, when I checked BTC guild it said my speed was 4.77.  Although it shows 2 shares now, my speed says 0.00.  I've tried searching for this problem but the people I find with this error are trying to solo mine.

here's my console log in GUIMiner:

My computer is running Windows 7 and has an NVIDIA GPU.  I haven't done any particular configuration beyond setting up my accounts for those two pools, then running GUIMiner.  I haven't set any extra flags either.

-How do I fix this error?  And If everything was working properly, how fast can I expect my shares accumulate at my speed of 4 MHash/s?  I know it's not enough to really make any money, I just want to make sure I can easily get everything working before buying any components for a rig.

EDIT:  The program and website for BTC guild now say 2 more shares were accepted after letting GUIMiner run for a few minutes, though I don't see the accepts in my console.  The BTC guild website says my speed is 9.5 now.

Even if you use Bitcoin through Tor, the way transactions are handled by the network makes anonymity difficult to achieve. Do not expect your transactions to be anonymous unless you really know what you're doing.

4 Mhash/s is nearly 0, It will take you a while to get a share. Speed on the website is always a little higher than you will see in GUI Miner.

As for your problem, I don't think it's anything you can fix. It are the pools that are unstable at times. If I check my logs from BTCguild, I have the same error from 17:30 onwards to 18:42. Not much you can do about it except for switching to another pool.

Also, no offence, but 4Mhash/s is almost worthless. It will take you ages to make anything profitable.
