Hi there,

I'm not to homebrew, ethereum and geth so please bear with me as I'm trying to read up and learn. One question I have at first is how do I know if I've installed get correctly? I went through the steps here: https://github.com/ethereum/homebrew-ethereum however now that I've run the geth command in my terminal session it is scrolling up a lot of data such as:

I0228 19:12:05.734424 32416 blockchain.go:1243] imported 256 block(s) (0 queued 0 ignored) including 996 txs in 1.796318965s. #269867 [017f8cbc / 136909ba]

The questions I have right now are:
1. Is this the ethereum blockchain being downloaded to my Mac?
2. Should I leave it running, does it need to complete?
3. Can I terminate this, and if so how?

TIA.
