Further: Same section, Constructor part >> "this is a special, startup function that runs only once and only once" (redundant)
Semantically, you probably want "only once and once only"

  1. I am using the Testnet to create a contract (using the "token" source code), and after hitting the deploy button last night, it is still showing "Creating contract" with "0/12 confirmation" now
  1. When "Watch Contract", there is a field "JSON INTERFACE", is it the same as the abiDefinition of a contract?
  1. How do I connect with the Testnet or real Ethereum network using geth command?

1) It can be either because you are paying a fee too low or because no one is mining at the testnet. Try mining yourself
2) yes

Thanks! Regarding Question #3, is there a simple answer to it? For example, I am using this command line for my server to get on a test network of my own:geth --datadir testdata --networkid 123 --nodiscover --maxpeers 0 console
Can I just change the networkid parameter to the one your TESTNET or real Ethereum network uses, as simple as that?
and of course I have to take out the "--nodiscover --maxpeers 0" parameters

geth —testnet should do the trick

Thanks. One last question: Is the account I created using Ethereum Wallet a real Ether account for storing and receiving and sending real Ether currency, even though right now I am using it to store and send and receive fake Ether money? I mean can I ask people to send real Ether to my Ethereum Wallet account by giving them the address, if so, how do we distinguish what is real and what is fake Ether in this case?
