Loading Authed Mine…
So, buddy, spare some CPU cycles?
That’s why it’d be optional.
That’s why I was thinking something that is opt in. If you don’t want to, you don’t have to.
Just an experiment anyway.
Just setup liberapay instead of wasting energy for laughable returns.
On top of being inefficient, it’s bad for the environment. Also I might need to replace the cooler on my CPU first 🙂
I suspect that even mining JS that asks for your permission first will get blocked by some virus scanners when the JS tries to load.
So I’m sorry but I won’t be opting in to this one, I’d prefer to just give you actual money – I’d almost prefer to send you my credit card number in plain text! 🙂
I was thinking of patreon, but their recent business decisions have been far from stellar. so……… Paypal? or Ko-fi?
They did reverse their bonehead decision.. so there is that.
I donno. I know I need to step up and create more stuff too.
I hate ads as much as you do. But one of my favourite blogs, of David L. Farquhar has the least intrusive ads. Would you reconsider introducing mining on your blog?
The mining was 100% opt in. That’s why I liked the idea. If you don’t click it, it just sits idle. It won’t do anything until you click the button, and even then it runs for something like 10 seconds. Load up something to watch your CPU, then hit the button and it’ll spike CPU, it does a unit of work then shuts down.
I thought this was the least obtrusive option, as if you don’t like it, then don’t click it. And if you do like it, it only runs for a few seconds and that’s that.
Auto mining to me is like video ads that auto play.. very annoying.
