If it is important to get the problems solved, then why not put people on different problems? You will NOT find 2 miners panning the same spot. One would shoot the other. It is called "claim jumping" and it is still a serious offense around here. And again, a bad weekend mining gold means I did not find what was there. A bad weekend bitcoin mining means someone came to my "claim" and took the gold that was there.
What does that box do? If the CIA is interested in bitcoin, there is some data mining going on, whatever else may or may not be mined. Is there someone who actually needs these problems solved, or is it a ruse to get everyone to open their hard drives for the CIA?
