Solo mining BFGminer S9 antminer Pool 1 slow/down or URL ...

Is this set up properly for solo mining?

Right off the bat, I want to specify that I know this is ridiculously unlikely to ever find a block. I just upgraded my mining equipment and I am thinking I would like to use my old block erupters and antminers to run solo mining as a sort of lottery - in case one day I strike it lucky. In the meantime, my main mining equipment will be pointed to my usual pool. This is only for my own enjoyment!
That being said, can someone verify if I have this set up properly? I have figured out how to start my Bitcoin-qt in server mode, and I have established the .bat file for BFGminer as:
bfgminer.exe -S antminer:all -o -u me -p mypassword --set-device antminer:clock=x0b81
Is that correct? I start it up and have verification that my miners are hashing, but I also get the following line from BFGMiner:
"No suitable long-poll found for"
I have read on other threads here that if the miners are hashing it is working despite that error line. I would like to make sure as I don't have a background in programming so this is still pretty confusing to me.
Also, without specifying a payout address, any new block found will be credited directly to the bitcoin client wallet I am running as a server, correct? The text from the BFGMiner readme file is not clear on this point, and suggests my line should be:
bfgminer.exe -S antminer:all -o -u me -p mypassword --set-device antminer:clock=x0b81 --coinbase-addr myaddress --coinbase-sig "something else goes here"
Thanks in advance for the help. I know this will probably be fruitless, but I think it will be fun to play these old miners as a Vegas-style gamble and use my main equipment as my "real" mining.
I'm asking this partly because the directions in the readme file are vague:
"BFGMiner supports solo mining with any GBT-compatible bitcoin node (such as bitcoind). To use this mode, you need to specify the URL of your bitcoind node using the usual pool options (--url, --userpass, etc), and the --coinbase-addr option to specify the Bitcoin address you wish to receive the block rewards mined."
While I understand that this means a payout address can be entered, it does not specify if a payout address MUST be entered. I was under the impression that mined coins are paid directly to the bitcoin wallet that functions as a server.
" If your bitcoin node does not support longpolling (for example, bitcoind 0.8.x), you should consider setting up a failover pool to provide you with block notifications."
I'm pretty sure this is in reference to the long-poll error I am getting, but I'm not sure what it means.
