I started mining using GUI miner on Thrusday afternoon. It said it was working fine. It had 24.5 Mhashes a second. I went out over the weekend and have just come back on Sunday night and still have no coins. What am I doing wrong?

Cheers, Sean

if you went solo it will take you approximately 313 days to get your first 50 BTC

nothing, but it takes appox. 319 days to mine a block at that rate

if you want to get anywhere with that amount of hashing power, you need to join a pool.

popular ones are slush's pool, deepbit, btcmine, and eligius.

Okay so I am a bit confused here, somewhere it said 20 Approved hashes = 50 Bitcoins,  how do approved hashes @ difficulty of 1 (in solo mode) relate to bitcoins?

1. no idea where you found that.  only thing i can think of that resembles that is the 120 block maturation (you don't receive the reward for a block until 120 blocks have been added to it past your block) for block rewards.

2. they don't.  difficulty 1 hashes don't have any real relationship to a solo mining payout.  only pooled mining really makes use of that.

The current difficulty is 157426. This means that on average you'll need to find that many difficulty 1 hashes in order to hit one that generates a block. Note the "on average" part though, it could be 1 hash or a million, but the average in the long run will be around 157K. Unfortunately though, the "long run" isn't very long, the difficulty is going up by about 40% in a few days. Smiley

Infinitevs, at the speed you're dealing with it may be marginally profitable for you to mine (I haven't done the computation), but it's probably not worth putting in a lot of effort. Join a pay-per-share pool like Deepbit or the variance will make you crazy.
