You can run the daemon. I’m guessing you’re using windows. You can probably automate it with a scheduler application. You might also be able to setup a separate user account and having it running in background while your employees use a separate account.
can i just stress the importance of the legality of such actions…
Basically my company outlined that they would immediately fire anyone using computers for any other purpose other than the designated work… and this is common policy across most companies… So do so at your own risk… What you will earn from ur 5 PC’s will be tiny compared to the salary that you bring home from the 9-5 job and you don’t want to loose your job!!..
However that said… can be a good call to have a sit down chat with your company director and explain to him / her about cryptocurrencies and primecoin in particular… never know they may say yes please lets setup a mining opperation on the work PC’s and lets buy more in for the process!! Just not worth getting fired for that is all, but best of luck The whole out of sight out of mind is great to but hard to hide the fact that CPU is maxed out when someone else tries to use the PC.
[quote=“ericwt, post:7, topic:245”]FuzzyBear, so you understand these are my computers, office building and my business. I pay my employees to do a job. Primecoin has nothing to do with their function on my computers.
I thought I made that crystal clear.[/quote]
You should consider using say 50% to 75% of each PC’s CPU max. during office hours and switching to 100% out of office hours then.
This will also prevent your employees from wondering why the computers are very slow today!
You don’t want to be lowering the overall productivity of your business for a few Primecoins either. 8)
Excellent then mine away dam i jealous of u… myu company i work for has like 100+ computers that sit idle 90% of the time… majority now i3 min… most i7 … so you can understand my frustration at my boss not being interested in BTC… just can’t wait for the day i walk out (hopefully a millionaire from BTC) suppose at least they were kind enough to let me take 15 old PC’s home that I have mining on free electricity at home!! but combined i get no more than 600PPS these days on them… got a few primecoin blocks but nothing that i gonna be able to retire on!!
Just make sure to exclude a core on each computer from mining and your employees will never know the difference. If they are standard users like I’m used to, they are going to think the computer is slow regardless of what it’s doing
Depending on what CPUs you have in your workstations you might be able to get away with saving only one core for other tasks like I do and dedicating the rest to mining. The CPU in my workstation is no slouch though (i7-2600K).
I haven’t noticed any performance decrease at all and I’ve been running 7 of the cores on primecoin nonstop.
