I'm trying to get started on ethereum private-net. I'm using MIST and trying to do a basic "Hello World" contract on windows. I setup geth and got off setting a private-net and checked it's mining okay. When I add a contract through MIST, it shows processing and nothing happens.

Attachment shows mist and the 3 transactions to deploy contract "Hello World"

The testnet took awhile (10-15)minutes before it started reflecting in my wallet balance. I did mine to get enough eth test coins.
