That's actually not bad!

After reading the 55 year old IBM bitcoin story http://forums.nekochan.net/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=16729659 I wonder if anyone is still doing this?

I might take some gear to work and hide them in the room 'no one enters'

Indeed! Hmm, I have other systems I could try, 4.8GHz i7 3930K, 3970X, etc. Also have a Phenom II 1090T but it's not oc'd yet.

I suppose results would be better with Linux, but I don't have any Linux setups atm.

Hey, I thought mining had moved away from Bitcoin anyway? Because the whole influx of ASICs and accelerators made it
uneconomic for desktop/GPUs. I read that Litecoin was a more productive option now as there was still no ASIC-based
method available, so CPUs/GPUs were still viable.

Yep, that's what I found also, LiteCoin is the way to go for normal bods.

I did some reading up the other night, set up a wallet, but failed to get the mining program running on a little 2012 server box.
