Bitcoin mining is now a specialized and very risky industry, just like gold mining. Amateur miners are unlikely to make much money, and may even lose money. Bitcoin is much more than just mining, though!

Bitcoin transactions do not have a well-defined "from" address. Each transaction can have several inputs, each of which has potentially an identifiable address it was previously sent to. Those addresses may or may not be under control of the sender of the funds.

If you need to do refunds, ask people for a refund address.

If you need to identify individual payments, give a different (unique) receive address for each.

Any help how I can do this, without using an external service like blockexplorer?

Lots of interest in doing this exact same thing.  There's going to be a lot of SatoshiDICE copycats, I suspect:

If using any normal client, and the payment is not multisig and not coming from a website like MtGox, any and all of those inputs are addresses controlled by the sender.  They must be, otherwise the sender would not have been able to issue the transaction.  Can anyone provide a counter-example?

Companies claiming they got hacked and lost your coins sounds like fraud so perfect it could be called fashionable.  I never believe them.  If I ever experience the misfortune of a real intrusion, I declare I have been honest about the way I have managed the keys in Casascius Coins.  I maintain no ability to recover or reproduce the keys, not even under limitless duress or total intrusion.  Remember that trusting strangers with your coins without any recourse is, as a matter of principle, not a best practice.  Don't keep coins online. Use paper or hardware wallets instead.
