If this is the address of my node:

enter image description here

which I created with this command:

geth --testnet account new

then is it correct that I check the ether balance of my account in this way:

according to my understanding, my node should be mining- if that's the case- would it make sense for my console output to look like this:

  • 1) are you mining on the main net? You're unlikely to find a block there with just a single computer! 2) yes, that is the correct way of checking the balance.

you can fire up a console and check your mining hash rate like this:

if it's not undefined, 0, or so on- something obviously wrong- then you're probably mining- some number like I have there is a good sign.
