I want to mine Ether and I've been trying to sync blockchains for days.
I've tried using
geth --fast command and it always stuck as in the picture.
My computer is running 64 bit Windows 10 with geth 1.4.10 installed. I've also tried using
geth --rpc but it gave me the same result. I'd guessed that it was because my ISP blocks P2P connection but after I try connecting via VPN nothing's changed.
I've already set my time synchronization to be with time.nist.gov as some soln I've found suggest.
Also I have trouble with MIST hang up on 'seeking peers' on startup without any progress.
What should I do to get this stuff done?
