I'm posting this with an anonymous username 'just in case'

Basically, I crawled into the crawlspace at work, ran some ethernet cabling down there, and now have 2 antminer s3s and a sp20 jackson running in a secret underground bitcoin mine.  I even wore a flashlight hat when I went down...

Hopefully the dusty crawlspace doesn't choke them out...

I have my miners in a crawlspace, but it is in my home.  Just make sure you have that circuit on a GFCI or that "Ant Hole" may be your permanent hole and not quite 6 feet deep.  My home is on a slope and most of my "crawlspace" is more of a "standplace" and its a good spot for the miners since I don't have to hear them and it is cool down there.  I will have to throw a dehumidifier down there once it gets warmer though.

Seems like a neat idea, just make sure the electric going there is safe, sounds like if the miners or psu explode and catch fire down there you would be okay but if it's in the cables you might be screwed.

i think i read something like this somewhere before.
2 IT admins started mining and because they were admins only they could see the data

i think they made like $12 before someone found out and they got sacked
i think it was a trainee admin

If they were overly good at their jobs they would have received a warning, good admins aren't easy to hire.

Sometimes company executives feel it necessary to "make an example" of particular poor behavior. Being good at you job will usually help, but not always.

so this is how you guy call if "i have free electricity", now everything is explained, i always wonders what was the way to steal it lol

but anyway with such low numbers of miners, it still pointless to do it, mining is not even about free electricity anymore, it's about going big in the first place

Just thought I'd ask but are you Amish? Reason I ask is because a lot of them steal electricity around where I live. They've been caught plenty of times.

Unless he is the only bitcoiner in the office and goes on about bitcoin than gg.

Here in the US, the bar for firing somebody is pretty low. Proof generally isn't required. Plan on losing your mining hardware as well, unless you want to claim it, then it's owner is no longer in doubt, is it? In many companies office supply "theft" is better tolerated at a small scan than Bitcoin mining.
