Concrete blocks?

I really need to know any tips, advice, or info for forming and pouring my own cinder blocks (i.e. how to make the forms, what type and brand of mix to use, etc.) Why?

I have a lot of time on my hands. If you know that it would be cheaper and better quality to just buy them pre-made....give me some info as to why this would be so such as how many I could get from a bag of concrete mix and what the compression strength of said blocks would be, and at what cure point is the compression that you are giving. Won't meet building code?...don't worry, the rest of my house won't either....alternative building....that's what code variances are for.
