I've ran my hardware occasionally but its totally not worth it for me; nice that they've finally allowed discussion on here.

In a pool all Miners hash rate Mines the block a Bit coin block has 25 bit coins in it.

When the block is solved the 25 bit coins is Distributed among everybody in the pool based on how many shares you have mined.
