Plea for help with bitcoin mining



I've installed the bitcoin program and have a couple of guiminers. I finally managed to download all of the blocks and made many connections (50 at one point) to get the blocks.

My problem is that the guiminer is stuck with a status bar message of "connecting". There are no obvious errors in the console but I've posted the console stream below (there is one message that looks suspicious and I'm going to see if upgrading my 6850's firmware helps with that).

Part of my problem in researching this is that I want to run as a solo miner. That means I need to set the client to act as a server (which I've done).

there is almost no info I could find on solo bitcoin mining and I think I need to point it to a server of some sort similar to what people who pool mine use. Except there seems to be absolutely no information on this.

I'd appreciate any help with this and will try to quantify my gratitude if I ever pull down some bc.
