I don't recommend trying to generate coins at this point unless you have a lot of money to spend on hardware and are fairly technically savvy.  The current difficulty factor has placed generation out of reach of most people.  However, if you post your address here, perhaps some kind soul will send you a few coins.

There is the possibility of a mining pool.
Making about .20 BTC/day myself just off idle laptop and desktop time.

Donate (even 0.01 BTC) to my Robot Fund:

Since every hash generated has an equal chance of finding a block, a mining pool just has a large number of people generate hashes. The rate at which they do so is somehow tracked, and when one of them finds a block, the reward is divided according to processing power contributed.
