Hi Admins of Networks of PC's, Workstations and Servers around the world,

please do not use the resources of the networks, computers and servers to mine for bitcoin. You are damaging to the bitcoin community unless you either own the company or are allowed so p.p. and mine to a "company wallet".
If you are just someone with admin rights who decides to flip on a few hundret CPU to mine, keep in mind that you are not only wasting a shitton of electricity, you are endangering your job, you are stealing electricity but you also damage the bitcoin community as a whole by aiding those "malware naysayers" that start to emerge.
Classifying bitcoin as illegal and malware is one of the first attack vectors we are already starting to materialize by the paypal etc lobby, dont help them for the pathetic gains you get. Lets just visualize the whole gains for YOU for aforementioned issues:
If you administer say 1000 PC's of avg. .edu type, you will see around 3.5mh/s per machine. Lets assume that through load and on and offtimes only 65% are mining 100% 24/7, the rest giving 12h cpu time, we would get an avg daily capacity of 2.275gh/s for 24/7 with another 1.575 gh/s for 12h, giving us a daily avg hashrate of 3gh/s for 1000 PC's steaming away at full load with unefficient PSU etc.

You not find anyone administering a network of this size being pisspoor on payday, so please use your not so shitty income to just buy 3 triple 5850 rigs, thats the same hashing power for 3k $ and 1500w electricity usage.
If that price is too high for a) being an environmentally responsible person who b) doesnt steal from his employer who c) doesnt hurt the bitcoin community by associating it with resource theft then you are, simply put, an a dot hole.

Theft is bad. Ask your mom, she'll concur.
