i have tried the tutorial at ethereum.org/token. The problem is, as someone who is new to ethereum using the Mist Ethereum Wallet (v 0.7.4), you start with zero ether in your account. So when you attempt to deploy the new token contract as part of the tutorial exercise, you are not permitted to as there is no ether in the account. I have attempted mining (admittedly with my PC so expectations are low) and failed to obtain that way. I have also gone to https://zerogox.com/ethereum/wei_faucet
and not obtained any using this methideither. I have been stuck on this for a while and am at a bit of a loss. Any help is much appreciated.
