Difficulty increases (link) - now it is not so easy to generate.
And also you should check that your port 8333 is open (link).

If you have not upgraded to > 0.3.9 you will not be able to generate any blocks the rest of the network will accept.

Ok well I've read the FAQ and understand that with the average modern PC it could take about 3 weeks to generate 50BC (at least that is how I understood what I read). I have a decent PC, nothing great. Anyways I've been running bitcoin since July 12. Within 1 day I generated 50BC. Now ever since then it hasn't generated any BC for me. It appears to be working fine, the usual X number of khash/s, says its Generating, 8 connections, 79933 blocks and counting, and 6 transactions. I can send and receive BC with no problems. So my question is, why have I not generated any BC since July 13? Am I just being impatient or what? Did the rate of BC generation change? Am I doing something wrong? I didn't really change any computer habits, so whats the deal?
Sorry if this is a stupid question.
