I started mid June. First 2 weeks in and I find one on deepbit. I was at 1.2Gh/s then. I blew a card and was getting it RMA'd and down to only 600Mh/s so said screw it and went solo since it was the weekend and no chance of getting my new card till Monday. I generated 50 coins plus the fees on Sunday the 2nd day of solo mining. I went straight back to deepbit
. Figured I am way ahead and will stay that way! I am up to 2.2Gh/s now and have not found a block since on any of the pools I mine on.
