You don't earn Bitcoins just because your computer does something.. It's not like distributing a calculation among the partecipants.

You earn Bitcoins by luck. The client is born to use the computer to help the network. But if you want you can enable coin generation, and if you're lucky your computer will win sort-of a "scavenger hunt" game against all the partecipants. Adding computing resources helps your luck, but does not guarantee success nor speed increment.

I think you should read the papers first...

yes, i probably should Smiley

luck
that counts me out then hehe Cheesy

like i've said.
been running this nearly 24/7 for the last 3 weeks
still zip.
there must be an incentive to use this.
i don't expect to make anything, but with 18 connections and 100% cpu time, a bit of reparation would be nice.
something for the project owner to think about perhaps? Smiley
