I would be interested in farming Safecoin from my work computer that lives in an enterprise environment, which is almost always on, has a fast connection, and access to multiple TB of shared network storage space. I am not particularly troubled by any ethical issues of using work resources for personal gain, because in my particular office, machines are always on, and bandwidth goes largely unused after hours anyway. I would have a few questions and concerns before doing this however:
- How can I keep this activity private from IT and network administrators? For instance could I run my vault inside a large nondescript Truecrypt container on a network drive? Could I run the Maidsafe client on a virtual machine, circumventing the “Sophos” security suite that blacklists certain websites or activities?
I’d like to hear what the community thinks of this as many people may have access to similar resources in their workplace environment.
