Hi. I was wondering whether 1 MHash/sec is 10**6 or 2**20 hashes per second? Thanks.

Each block is stacked on top of the previous one. Adding another block to the top makes all lower blocks more difficult to remove: there is more "weight" above each block. A transaction in a block 6 blocks deep (6 confirmations) will be very difficult to remove.
