The grue lurks in the darkest places of the earth. Its favorite diet is adventurers, but its insatiable appetite is tempered by its fear of light. No grue has ever been seen by the light of day, and few have survived its fearsome jaws to tell the tale.

Finding a block in under a day with the CPU miner a couple of months ago, before I found out that that wasn't supposed to happen.

Finding a block on a 486 DX2 55mhz I was solo CPU mining on as a joke.  Not really a run, but the probability on it makes it rather "lucky"

If you've got access to free power (work PC's or something of the like) it never hurts to just have a buncha CPU's mining.  While statistically low, there is a small chance one will generate a 50 coin block (we're talking seriously low, but every little bit helps).

Insert some statement about wasting power/hurting the environment doing this here....

Insert another statement about someone needing to offer carbon offsets for bitcoins so my soul is clean.
