Is it better to have a few workers in a mining pool running on a computer, or just one or two?

My machine is hardly a mining machine, it's a little acer aspire one notebook and it's using CPU. If I don't have more than one miner I can hit 1 Mhash or whatever the rate is, however any more than that and the rate goes down a lot.

So what's better?

What else could I say?

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Header-only clients like MultiBit trust that the majority of mining power is honest for the purposes of enforcing network rules such as the 21 million BTC limit. Full clients do not trust miners in this way.

I guess I should continue with my 3 workers for one site, two for another? It's taxing the heck out of my computer but I didn't know if it was better to have smaller halves of a whole working at it or one.

that is consuming more in electricity than it is earning, and definitely not worth anything when you consider your time invested (unless you are simply doing it for the entertainment and/or learning value.)

that said, sum up your mhash/s.  whichever combination gives you the most in total, that's the combination that will earn more.  just one cpu miner running gives the most mhash/s, if i remember correctly.
