After mining with GUIMiner for a couple of days I see:

1775 (68)

On the summary page.
Any clue what this means?
Something like 1776 block hashes found, and 68 are what?
Stale is just a -, which means what?.

Also, any guidance about how long before I might actually see a coin or two? [50 coins at a time when I strike it rich, right?]
I'm mining on two different machines at: 40MH/s and 85MH/s using separate Bitcoin instances.
It would seem from these results that I'm repeating a large number of solutions that other folks have already claimed, so I'm not getting any coins?

I'm just trying to confirm that things are actually working.
The main bitcoin display is completely devoid of any useful display at this point.

Since I'm not able to connect the two machines to the same bitcoin instance, but rather there are two instances, I presume that the two systems are solving the same hashes, which is certainly sub-optimal. Am I correct in assuming that if the two machines were talking to the same instance then they would divide the work without duplication?

I'm using GUIMiner too. If you're mining off a pool then you'll have to check how they pay out and etc, block hashes found are your share of calculation that is completed, the number in the brackets are over the past 1 hour (1775 total since guiminer is fired up - 68 in the last hour) Stale means someone solved that hash and was accepted before you did and therefore that hash you were doing was not counted as a share.

If you're mining solo thru the Bitcoin Client server then I suggest you start by joining a pool and read more. Head over to my newbie guide and see if it helps. I'm still a newbie myself but I help whenever I can Smiley
