Thanks for the option. Glad to support the cause.

callem just sent 0.14 (yes, it was me)


I'm going to go out on a limb here and say this is it: https://blockchain.info/tx/9ed3267e665c94d9727d99ad8bf3ab13109fd0b5757722eafe01d122407976d1

Anybody else, please provide your own proof to help the mods out. BTW, this thread is no guarantee, but rest assure as it's seen by more and more mods on a daily basis, they'll easily threat it as they do with Whitelist Request thread.

That said: Let my phriend, callem, pass, mods. (was trying to work in Moses' line, "Let my people go!", but failed)

Calling it a night and will register this and any other donations tomorrow.

Thanks again, callem.

Migrated the above over here so that I can use the post number when I add to the tally in post #2 of this thread.

Adding [14] to the count. Thanks again, callem.

0.3btc (not sure how many people - 1 if that person is my wife)

https://blockchain.info/tx/b6742599ac934f7c8cface4d35bf4ff47fe8d6416fa0cd29952500e261f1dca5


Thank you so kindly, dancupid. Adding [29] to the tally. EDIT: Jason mentioned in the post above this one that the transaction equates to [30]. Please don't take offense with my [29] count due to the exchange rate and to keep the running tally as accurate as possible. A few days ago, said donation would have equated to [30].


And finally, thank you as well, btcbug, for your contribution.

My next post will be showing what I donated as promise from last night's efforts.

Bruno... seriously.  Why would you intentionally conflate quotes made about FPGA devices, which are programmable/changeable/1.5 years old and ASIC devices, developed much later for a very different market segment/environment?  

So we're back to the lack of integrity thing again, huh?  Well, that was short lived.

We learned our lesson in the FPGA era not to give financial advice.  God forbid we learn from our mistakes! What would people have to bitch about then?


With all due respect, I can't take credit for the post as outlined at its onset, for I was only doing such as per requested.

The best I can ascertain is that he probably wanted to show a contrast between your "financial advice" and what official BFL once penned, regardless of what line was being produced then or in the future.

BTW, you planning on attending the Atlanta conference? I assume you're making Amsterdam.

FWIW, if I would have found the above, I would have made the same mistake you so kindly pointed out as being such.

Lucky I caught this, thinking tysat was posting some other link. As we can clearly see, tysat was kind enough to donate ~$125.00 of which will now go toward to feeding 100 people. I'll use this post number when I update the tally.

Once again, thank you so kindly, tysat.

I'm also going to be matching The Bitcoin Catalog's [10] donation sometime after midnight.

About 30 minutes left. Any chances of getting at least one person to contribute [3] $1.25 USD so that I can match that as well? This is about as pushy as I get.

I can't take credit for the following, for it was provided to me via an email with instructions to not mention his name and suggesting that this thread may be the best place for the quotes to be viewed. He opted to not comment on the quotes believing that they're self-explanatory (my words) and if he did, he was a afraid that his lack of command of the English language would clue as to whom he is (paraphrased).

No, we have no way to predict the future price of BTC, what other vendors will do, or what hashing power, besides our own, will come on to the network (or leave the network).

We are a hardware manufacturer, not a prognosticator, nor are win the business to tell customers what we think they should do. That puts us in the category of financial advice and that's definitely not a category we want to be in. Do you see Intel, Nvidia, AMD, et al telling people they should or shouldn't buy a particular CPU or GPU based on the stock market? Of course not.

Is there anything else one can do with Single or MiniRig than mine bitcoins. Just wondering what kind of "insurance" I have if BTC crashes.

Before I ordered my Rig Box (now two Mini-Rigs), Sonny told me (just a paraphrase from memory) that I shouldn't consider the value of the hardware for other uses in any part of my decision on whether to make a purchase, as there is currently no other use for them.  However, he also said that if BTC did crash and become worthless, they would probably release their development toolkit so their customers could attempt to recover something on the hardware investment.

Hi guys, sorry to jump in on your conversation but this comment was pointed out to me and I wanted to take the opportunity to clarify as this question has come up quite a lot.

Our alternate purpose firmware has been set aside in favor of focusing our efforts on the larger BTC mining market.  Our project started before BTC and when time allows, we will complete firmware development in those areas.  However, because we've stopped development for those markets we want to make it clear that purchasing our hardware should be a decision based on it's BTC mining value alone.

All production of these processors will be dedicated to our Mini Rig product exclusively.

Why? I'd sure buy a couple of those new tech singles. I've already sent you $17k once.


The biggest difference is lead time.  We've ramped up production of the Single and are now shipping in volume.  The Mini Rig platform has a longer lead time because of it's processor manufacture constraints.  If you're making a longer term investment on a larger scale, the Mini Rig may make much more sense because of the long term value of it's cost efficiency.  If you're looking to make a more casual investment and get started more quickly, the single may be more attractive.  It's up to the consumer of course, but our reason for keeping the products separate is in production streamlining.

Without doing any highlighting, I believe the sender's intent was to negate Josh's quote via the other two quotes by BFL on this forum. The top link was provided by me upon doing a Google search, for it was not included within the email.

They're complaining because you're late and others are early (relative to you).  There's nothing more or less to it than that.

Someone hasn't been reading the forums!


without to get too personal I suggest go back to work and do your job. I have a order in your system which I can charge off. this is the situation we have right now. I will never ever do any business with you again, for shure.

Believe me, it will be more of a relief to me than it will be to you!

Thursday Oct 3rd is the regular Atlanta meetup at Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurant Buckhead

Friday the 4th, 6-8PM — Welcome reception at the offices of Bitpay in Atlanta [Suite 516, Atlanta Tech Village.  Directions.] Tatiana Moroz will be on hand to perform at around 8:00pm.

I couldn't help but notice that there's a nice size parking lot across the street that'll be perfect to conduct a Satoshi Square prior to the meetup: https://maps.google.com/maps?q=3242+Peachtree+Rd,+NE,+Atlanta,+GA

Not wanting to take away any thunder, would you be so kind as to list this meetup in this section as a standalone thread? I plan on attending since I'm driving in and already planned on getting to Atlanta early.

Good call. Done.

I'll ask my contact if they have reached out to the press.

Great! It's now your job to make sure the press is present. Thanks for volunteering.  Grin

I fully intend to miss both, as my plane will be landing at 11:30pm Friday (I'm working Friday, so have to fly out in the evening) Let me know how it goes Cheesy

Damn, you won't get much sleep after checking in, for the conference starts at 8:00 AM. Saturday morning traffic in Atlanta isn't that bad driving south to north unless there's an accident. I suggest leaving out about sevenish nonetheless.

I'll be there Friday. If there is enough people coming Thursday I'll drive up early as we're based in Huntsville, AL.

I have an Uncle in Huntsville, and I used to own a home in Harvest. I love Alabama.

Thanks, OP, for starting this thread. I'll be there, driving down from Illinois.

Important EDIT: This thread was penned under the impression that it took 4-5 hours of reading time for one to get out of Newbie. That is not the case. It only takes 4 hours of actual clock time to complete the task with, of course, only one post.

That said, feel free to post whatever you desire in this thread, but please consider donating to Sean's Outpost, a truly noble cause.

Full disclosure: I am in no way affiliated with Sean's Outpost, although Jason King is affiliated with Bitcoin 100 of which I founded, but now Rassah is the Director (self-imposed title).

Thank you.

Bruno Kucinskas


Full Disclosure: This thread is not sanctioned by theymos or ever discussed in Meta. I simply took the incentive to create such a mechanism as another way for people to surpass the TOS of this forum so that they're able to interact more quickly.

That said, the process consist of paying to get outta of Newbie Jail. The price? $12.50 USD via Bitcoin payable to the following address: 1M72Sfpbz1BPpXFHz9m3CdqATR44Jvaydd

The address coincides with this thread: The Mega Thread that Feeds People in Need (1M72Sfpbz1BPpXFHz9m3CdqATR44Jvaydd)

In essence, the people choosing this route is saving themselves 4-5 hours reading time ONLY as required by the TOS of BitcoinTalk. The other requirement--posting once--will be met when they post to this thread showing proof that the $12.50 USD donation was made, with Blockchain.info being the desired method, but others are welcome as long as the mod(s) in charge of releasing Newbies into the wild can easily verify.

The 4-5 hour reading requirement is in place so that people not verse in Bitcoin must do some reading on the subject on this forum. Otherwise, sans the wall, the place would be crawling with silly willy-nillies, hence why the wall was erected in the first place.

But, by being a Phriend of Phinn and donating bitcoins to Sean's Outpost, a noble cause, you would clearly demonstrate that you do have a more than rudimentary understanding of Bitcoin and shouldn't have to burden yourself with the grueling task of reading for 4-5 hours when you may only want to come here to interact a couple/few times on one subject/thread/issue.

In closing, either pay-to-play (humor, and for lack of a better term), or go to the Newbie Release Me Thread, of which it may take hours for one of the drunk mods (definitely humor!) to read your request, let alone act upon it.

Most the mods, sans the ones I got fired (not really, I don't think), like me, and should be able to recognize that anybody posting in this thread is worthy of being released from Newbie ASAP, hence not giving a rat's ass what theymos thinks (I don't think, but better include a smiley  Wink NTL).  But, if I were you, I would hedge my bet by going over to Whitelist Requests (Want out of here?) and post the appropriate link to my thread (this), thus showing further proof that you're not a real n00b.

Thank you in advance to all those who've opted for this option, and have contributed to Sean's Outpost via 1M72Sfpbz1BPpXFHz9m3CdqATR44Jvaydd to get outta Newbie Jail free (or is that an oxymoron?).

I just realized why yesterday's goal wasn't reached--the Chicago Bears were playing Pittsburg of which Da Bears won. That, and perhaps the goal was too high.

Therefore, today I'm only going for a Field Goal--[3]. Three people is all that's desire for the duration of today (CST) to donate $1.25 USD each.

To make it even more interesting to help surpass that goal, the first 10 people or transactions (even if done so by one person) that contribute exactly (or close enough) $3.75 (3 X $1.25), I will match their donation.

Full Disclosure: I'll be doing such with the Kool Aid money. Those not aware of the backstory, don't fret it.

Now, please excuse me while I head on over to Newbie and start a thread, one that'll probably make theymos cringe, but hopefully not that badly. Code Term: Phriend of Phinn.  Grin
