Just sent my 0.05 BTC from the faucet to myself... it's still at 0 confirmations about 20 minutes later.

It is showing as "0/unconfirmed" on both machines.

Is this normal? Am I just waiting for the next block to be hashed?

It's been a while since a block was found. You will get your confirm eventually.

Lol, nope!

I have never sent anything to or from anybody before! Please forgive me :S

It is sitting at 2 confirmations right now which is probably me and the other computer that I sent it to in the room next to me?

Amazingly however, the transaction was virtually instant. I clicked "send" and it showed up on the other computer before I could switch to the RDP screen.

No, that's not what the confirmations mean. The first confirmation means that someone put your transaction in a valid block. The second means that someone worked off of that block and found another valid block which doesn't explicitly contain your transaction, but is an endorsement nonetheless. I think you should see 4 confirmations now.

It's just a coincidence that you appeared to get 2 at once. The average time between is 10 minutes, but those two only had 11 seconds between them.

That makes more sense. Thank you for the explanation FreeMoney! So if I am showing 94 confirmations today (~12 hours later) then that means that ~94 blocks have been hashed/solved since then?
