And you forget he stole hardware and sold it on ebay.
This is the most bad point about this situation. If he only mined coins on the system this wouldn't be that bad at all.

It's still stealing company resources.
He might get off with a reprimand if it's only bitcoin mining. Stealing escalates this whole matter.

Yes, electricity that gets written off on taxes as a business expense is one thing. The "I've taken 10+ ram sticks, LAPTOPS and sold them on eBay" thing was what got my idiot meter going.

Daniel if you're still reading this thread I hope that everything works out for you for the better and that you seriously learn a lesson.

He could mine that kind of speed up $100 with a very low end card.

But considering how dishonest this goofball is, I would not expect him to be a savvy enough administrator to be able to fine tune cards that way.

DMetcalfe92:

Can i first say that, as a seasoned IT worker i personally find this kind of behaviour and blatant admission of criminal activity to be abhorrent.

I can only hope that karma sees it fit your employer catches wind of this and takes some instant action - in the industry, we call this kind of forum posting a CLM (Career Limiting Move); criminal charges against you by an employer are generally the kind of thing that follows you for the rest of your career.

Ill content with waiting for karma, i began to wonder what D Metcalfe 92 might be a contraction of.... and armed with your self-confessed skills portfolio
(from here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?&topic=61890.msg722090#msg722090 )
we found a little something you might find interesting..

IF your name just happened to be Daniel Metcalfe then this link with a very similar set of skills might worry you:

http://uk.linkedin.com/pub/daniel-metcalfe/45/824/a76

Especially because it lists the lovely services of [Weston EU Ltd August 2008 – Present (3 years 8 months)] as this this persons current employer...

http://www.westoneu.net/westoneu.html

Sounds like a lovely family operation - it would be terrible to hear that the Sutton's had gotten wind of an employee behaving like this.

I REALLY hope you werent that silly bro

Someone call the partyvan.

Ok I think this has gone overboard.  I'm willing to bet that everyone in this thread has "stolen" company resources.  Ever gone to the bathroom outside your allotted break?  That's theft of time.  Used a company phone to make a personal phone call?  Theft of time.  Talk to your coworkers about the NCAA tournament? Read Facebook at work when it's not your job to do so?  Used a sticky note to jot down something that you forgot about to do at home?
 
etc, etc.
 
My 7970 (at home) costs me $0.64 cents per day to mine.   The shit I just took at work 10 minutes ago?  $2.08 of company time.
 
Listen, I get that you don't want bitcoin to get a bad name, and these actions would darken bitcoin's image.  But seriously, I would have just ignored the kid, not get him fired.  That's wrong, IMO.

Well, bathroom is obvious, I just can't hold it 8 hours.
The rest, if the boss don't allow this small things the morale would get lower and actually less work will be done.
The use of cpu's for mining for bitcoin doesn't do a thing with morale and just steal electricity.

/edit, not sure if morale is the correct word for this (primary language is not english)
Maybe working atmosphere is a better one.

You don't have to hold it 8 hours.  Just max of 2 hours (or maybe 4 depending on your labor rules of your country) until your permitted break.  I've worked production lines before, you hold it, but never had I had to hold it for 8 hours in any job.   And no, if you're not worried about those other activities, you will get a lot of work done during your work day.  You'd be surprised what you can get done if you're not being distracted.

But sometimes I just need the distraction.
I'm a computer programmer, and when I'm thinking to long for something and it's just not working I don't get anything furter.
The I read one or two news articles or some new posts on this forum, then go back to work and suddenly just see the problem I was having.
Perhaps it's not that way for everybody, but for me it is better that way.

Ofcourse hours and hours checking facebook and funny cat sites is bad Tongue

So, you're equating bathroom breaks with $500/month of electricity and stolen computer systems being sold on eBay?  Really?  REALLY?

I mean, I think it's an interesting thing to think about (I even analyzed the company I work for a few years ago and estimated they paid $17k/month for people to use the bathroom), but I wouldn't at all equate unintentional labor hours lost with intentional misuse of company resources and/or actual theft of physical resources.

My point was, don't be a dick when you yourselves do similar (albeit perhaps less cost) things.  And yes, I *would* equate bathroom breaks that aren't during your allotted break time as theft.  Something I hear sometimes is "it's the principle" of the thing.  Well so is doing activities during work time *THAT AREN'T WORK*. 
 
I think some of them are just jealous that they can't mine "for free" and so get pissed at others who do.  Why is it sweat off your sack if that kid did it?  He eventually probably would have got caught, but other than bilking his boss, what did it do to the collective members of this forum?
 
And yes, I do take bathroom breaks outside my breaks.  I do make personal phone calls, etc, etc.  But yes, they are all equal, IMO.  It's time/money that your employer is paying you for that you're not doing.

Some kinds of "time theft" or whatever are just officially allowed by your employer, for good reasons.
Other things aren't, however, and you just shouldn't do those.

Things like using the bathroom or jotting down personal notes surely belong to the first category, if done within reason.
Using company resources for CPU mining (which isn't even profitable as a whole), or outright stealing inventory, certainly belongs to the latter category.
