So, i'm trying out mining with a mac and i'm not asking whether mining is possible, my question is is it actually even possible to make a minimal amount of bitcoins. I hear people saying that mining with bitcoin has now become "competitive" and I wonder if that means if we are fighting over who completes a block? I'm using eligius because they are one of the few pools that let people mine with gpu. When will I get paid? Do I need to keep mining for a few hours? Any help will be appreciated. thx. BTW: here is a my console log, is this correct?

You will never get paid, because your miner is too slow to provide useful work to the mining pool.
