Hey guys!
I'm an IT administrator for a medium sized manufactoring company.

Currently, I'm achieving around 150 MH/s by CPU Mining on all PCs in the company
Is there a command line GPU Miner available that trys all available methods (cuda, opencl, etc) to mine, then exits if none work?

I just want all (usable) pcs to run at 0 agression and mine with their GPUs for my pockets benefit Smiley
Termination in 3 - 2 - 1...

Do you realize how much your company's electricity usage is going to go up by? Not to mention unnecessary wear and tear on the poor computers. I hope you have (at the very least) permission to do so.

This might be considered somewhat off-topic for your question, but make sure you have permission to do this or you could get into trouble.

If the 92 in OP's name is his birth year, it explains a lot. Cool

You are in a maze of twisty little passages, all alike.

I don't have permission, but I can't be caught because I'm the only person smart enough in IT to figure out what's going on!

Then they probably wouldn't notice if you just took a few computers home with you for your "pockets benefit", either...

As a matter of fact, they dont. I've taken 10+ sticks of RAM, a few PSUs, tons of HDDs, printer power supplies, a laptop, a PC

Wow... Is it just me who finds this offensive? (as a fellow IT Professional for the past 15 years).

Also I wouldn't bet "they can't catch you" if I were you... They could (likely) notice the increased power usage, and when they do they may start investigating (calling the utility company, to find out why, they may send someone to meter it, and so on, eventually figuring out that it's the computers drawing power, at that point you're going to have some explaining to do).

I found a former employee's eBay listings for missing stuff in the company I worked for, it was fun calling him at home and listening to him on speakerphone try to explain his way out of it. Of course calling him was just so we could listen to the cops beating on his apartment door and arresting him.

Owned LOL

Well considering an idling PC will consume 100Watt or so, and an active mining PC with a single GPU will consume 400W+ that's a 300% increase in power.

So if your computers currently consume 5% of your overall power, you might see increases of 15% in power usage. Any business manager with half a brain would likely ask questions where that power usage is coming from.

But that argument aside, even if they don't notice.

What your doing is flat out morally wrong, it's theft. And regardless of how you justify it, you're going to have to deal with the consequences when you eventually get caught and:
- You are fired from your job
- You are charged criminally
- You are no longer bondable destroying any longterm career prospects

You are CPU mining? That is hardly worth the effort, let alone the risk. If you have no qualms about acting criminally, then why not sell some of those memory sticks and buy a few GPUs? They will be more energy efficient than all those CPUs.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

You do know that is considered a criminal act by US Federal Law, right? And you do realize advocating illegal acts are against forum rules, right?

+1 to this. As an IT admin myself this sickens me. I would hope that the mod's on this board who have logged your IP address will use it to find out which company you work for and notify them of this thread. I personally would be willing to come in to that business and gather forensic evidence to have you arrested, and I'd do it pro bono.

Me too. Plus, any industry with electricity consumption in hundreds of kW and more has usually pretty tight agreement with electricity supplier with hefty fines for exceeding contractual load, so there is big incentive to monitor power usage.

Does a user on this forum have to defraud another forum user in order to earn the 'scammer' badge?
It'd be nice if mods would stretch to tagging this guy for self-admitted ongoing fraudulent activity.

If he has no qualms about stealing from his employer - he'll likely have no qualms about stealing from other bitcoiners whenever he thinks he can get away with it.

Better yet, I hope the forum admins turn his IP in to the cops of his local area.

Even better if he's posting from work, and the IP leads them straight to it.
