Pool mining confusion...idiot guide required

Hi Folks,

Ok - I have to accept defeat - I have managed to set up solo mining…this is what I am getting;

“blocks” : 265786,
“chainspermin” : 2,
“chainsperday” : 0.31548743,
“currentblocksize” : 1000,
“currentblocktx” : 0,
“difficulty” : 9.96166897,
“errors” : “”,
“generate” : true,
“genproclimit” : -1,
“primespersec” : 536,
“pooledtx” : 0,
“sieveextensions” : 9,
“sievepercentage” : 10,
“sievesize” : 1000000,
“testnet” : false

…so I think that I am trying to mine something…no joy yet.

I thought that maybe I would be better off in a pool and tried to get that sorted but I have no idea how to input the required commands into whichever files/windows etc …

Therefore I need a very basic guide to pool mining i.e. do this…click here…open this file…input this text… yada yada yada.

I maybe the wrong side of 50 but I strongly believe that the crypto currencies are our future but in order for me to convince others of my generation (- please bear in mind that when I was at school a calculator was considered state of the art - ) I need to be able to demonstrate how to become part of the new world.

Thanks for reading…hope I get some replies :slight_smile:
