[quote=“sathoro, post:13, topic:1179”][quote=“FuzzyBear, post:12, topic:1179”]All I’m saying is that people have lost their jobs in doing such mining on company computers http://www.crikey.com.au/2011/06/22/tips-and-rumours-481/ is the australian guy who was using the ABC servers.
If you post something like:
“I’m quite certain that one of your employees, [my name removed], is hacking client servers to mine a crypto currency called primecoin. I’m quite certain that the user Satharo on this forum is [my name removed].”
You are suggesting that there are people already looking into and aware of your activities, and from what I am reading you are not the system admin… and then you are?? but why would you be listed as “hacking” the servers…
anyway just play safe, if its your hardware to use then thank you for supporting primecoin. If not then do not expect to be at your current job much longer!! For the coins you will earn let me tell you it is just not worth it if it is not your hardware… had you bought the coins with a little from your monthly salary then you will find you accumulate much more coinage and less stress for yourself always looking over your shoulder to see who is watching your activity
The only person “looking into my activities” is somebody on this forum making assumptions from a single post I made. They then submitted a contact form through my company’s website that routes to my email address, as I am the owner.
When I said “my company’s contact form” and said “I own my own [company]” I thought it was clear I was the owner of the company. Anyways… I am just trying to say everyone needs to stop jumping to conclusions because somebody can work somewhere and be mining Primecoin independently. It is completely not needed to try and get them fired. I do not agree with any of the people who are system admins and use computers they don’t own and don’t pay electricity to mine coins. That is not cool.[/quote]
It can’t be me as I can’t see who is mining a lot and who has access to the pool’s ip addresses. This is looking more like you got owned writing from fake statements…
Either way, be open minded about a big electricity bill, wherever it is you live…
I’d be surprised if you aren’t running at a loss. I can’t see any calculations you have put forward for your argument.
I’m not writing bs. This was the main reason I wrote the thread up. Electrical costs.
Add additional air conditioning costs, if not, add costs of hardware failure.
The only reason why a VPS like DigitalOcean earns money is because the miners are subsidised by the other clients that use less CPU resources. Note how many other cheap VPS will boot you off in their terms and conditions. Moderately priced VPS won’t kick you off but their prices exceed $0.007 an hour per core.

Xeons aren’t that much better.
I’m beginning to think what you wrote was fake unless some pool operator can come on here and confirm that they were doing something.
You came to show us that you have 10,000 workers. We are here, the thread itself is to show you that it is illogical. Are you making the network more secure? Who knows. Probably not since you only added a few extra workers in percentage terms.
Either way, good luck, you do whatever you want to do.
Don't jump to conclusions and start trying to get people fired and their careers ruined, good lord.
but it is in conflict with
I do not agree with any of the people who are system admins and use computers they don't own and don't pay electricity to mine coins. That is not cool.
because they would be allowed to. They wouldn’t be fired. So, that’s a strange argument to put forward… Furthermore, you support those who should lose their jobs mining with equipment that they don’t own, exactly the opposite to the first statement.
If anything, I’ve helped you to understand the costs of mining but you confer the blame back to me just as I have mentioned with the psychological projection. Use Wikipedia if you need it.
[u][i][b]I own the hardware. I pay the electricity. I don't need you making ridiculous assumptions and telling me I am operating at a loss or doing something illegal.[/b][/i][/u]
Seriously, get over yourself.
If I google your name satharo which you mention as the link to someone finding you but I can’t find anything online that even links you to a company. That makes it even more suspicious. Furthermore, what small/medium enterprise has the spare capacity for 10,000 workers? A large enterprise would most likely mean you don’t own the company, at least not by yourself.
Therefore, even with a privately held firm, the bean counters will come and look at the electricity bill rising a lot and probably call in some electricity auditor, which may lead to IT security being called if they find computers are using a lot more than usual. You can hide a primecoin miner, but how do you hide an electricity bill that your fellow investors are looking at with a puzzled face.
It's also not a trivial amount:
10,000 say 50 watts each per hour (very conservative). 500 kilowatts per hour. 12000 kilowatts per day.
At $0.07 per kwh. $840 a day in additional costs. $306,600 extra a year.
I am also puzzled at how the person who was looking for you would know your real name. If and only if they saw your name, it would most likely state CEO next to it and so the message you would have received would not be stating “employee”.
People lie, but the mathematics tell another story.
I’m retired now, so I have time to analyse things. But seriously, I’m beginning to think you are actually an employee trying to cover up something. Have some business ethics and do the right thing.
