Slightly offtopic, but I was just thinking that some people probably steal electricity from their employers (run miners in the background at work).
I don't do this as by the way as I'm self-employed and work from home!
But I am curious if any employee-types would admit to doing this.
At most companies, work computers aren't that great. I'm saying people would most likely have to do CPU mining on machines that may not have had their hardware updated since 2005 or something. Besides that, the company would detect a lot of IRC traffic, wouldn't they? Probably not worth the trouble of getting caught for just a few Mhash, if that.
But I'm sure some people are doing it anyway. Might as well have the computer do something if it's going to be on all of the time, they might say. And if you're lucky enough to have Radeons in your work computers, then all the better.
