Uh Oh, the high level answer is it means you are not getting any bitcoins.

The lower level answer is harder to figure out without more information, basically, somewhere in the software/hardware stack is a problem that is preventing you from returning valid shares. It could be a hardware problem but most likely it is just a configuration problem.

In the comments below, can you answer: 1: What hardware are you running this on? CPU? GPU? model? 2: What does your GUIminer window look like (attach a screen shot). 3: Did you create a worker on deepbit.com?
