Subject: Re: cryptocurrency mining fallback in JtR (was:
 Parallella: scrypt)


After the discusion in the IRC, this will be my time line:
Move the needed code to my git repo.
Launch cgminer in a detached screen, when JtR is about to finish.
Use the cgminer API to show info then finish JtR. (this is only for testing

At the end of this day I will have a JtR that launchs cgminer without take
care if was already working or not.

If there an instance of cgminer, stop the GPUs that JtR is going to use,
when JtR finish continue with cgminer using those GPUs.
Donate option.
Start cgminer at the end of JtR option.

At the end of this day I will have a JtR that launchs cgminer taking care
if was already working or not.

Check all is working.
Finish possible delayed tasks.

At the end of this day the implementation should be finished.
