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.
