    Same here, so far I'm noticing any issues with other programs when running it at the settings I do all day long.

    Okay I'm running Malwarebytes and it's going bonkers. How do I exclude this from detecting it. I create an exclusion however the IP address associated with the mining program keeps changing.

    According to Kill-a-Watt, this adds 70W to my PC load. If this math is right, that's about $25/yr.

    Fuck it. I donated instead.

    Norton detected malware and pretty much completely disabled the site functionality on Firefox.

    I managed to bypass it and am now on Chrome.

    I think it's munching my phone battery. My phone goes from 100% to low battery in about a half hour when browsing Wackbag on 4g. Lasts a bit longer when connected to wifi.

    I'm probably going to remove the code at the end of NOV. It's been a few weeks, and is only up to about $4. I am going to put a direct Bitcoin & Litecoin donation link in though.

    Ok - I think I've added my Litecoin QR code properly. If anyone feels generous, please feel free to try and use that. Let me know if it doesn't work, as I'm sure there's something I didn't do properly. As with most crypto-currency, I wouldn't know who donated via this method, so if you do use it, and want to be 'credited', please send me a PM here on on Twitter!

    I'm more than willing to let it run howdy I can't figure out how to exclude this from my security programs.

    I'm responsible for the next 20 donations.

    But I have been meaning to donate again, so is this the preferred and/or only method available? Because I don't know shit about this stuff.

    I wasn't sure if he's fleeing the country after some #metoo allegations and wanted the donations via some untraceable magic computer currency.

    Any way works! If you've never used a cryptocurrency before, coinbase.com is a good place to start!

    My computer thinks Wackbag has AIDS. Every page that loads up I get a warning from Windows Defender. Is this permanent now?

    Ok, disregard my post. Must be this running in the background that’s eating my battery. Although, I didn’t opt in.
