On 12/6/2019, you expected one month to process this refund. It is now 1/3/2020. I hope the process will be completed shortly.

Still waiting.........................................................

With a little more time under my belt, I found out what works and what doesn't.  Every so often, when Slush hasn't found a block for many hours, I jump into slush until they hit 2 or 3 blocks, and jump back out. It actually works quite well if you have a little luck with the timing and blocks.  Most times, it will increase my daily earnings a good 10-15%

I'm also waiting patiently.  I got the sane responses to my emails.  I see the refund amount is now removed from my Bitmain account credit amount.  But yet to receive it

Yeah, I'm aware. Ive live in PA for a few decades to say the least.  I expect to get about a month at this deal until they find out my usage is too high. I found the clause where they can cancel the deal for "higher than expected use" .  Then I'll shop for the next one.

What company is offering that? I'm in PA and my price to compare is 5.6 cents kWh. I used to shop around and had a generation rate as low as 4.2 cents before. I've switched my generation a few times before I finally just went back to Penelec because their rates dropped after tax cuts. Unless rate was at least 1 cent cheaper it wasn't really worth it because in my case they were tacking on other fees for things like non-utility generation and increasing the distribution charge so the savings was null or even cost me.

Most of these suppliers bank on you not cancelling prior to their ridiculous rate increases when the contract auto-renews, have cancellation fees, etc. One of my last suppliers actually cancelled my service 2 months early when I told them I wasn't going to renew even though they confirmed multiple times it wouldn't be cancelled until contract renewal.

If it's Inspire, I guess my historical usage is greater than yours cause they're giving me a rate of $225, which would still be worth switching if there really are no hidden fees.

It was Inspire.

I only started the mining operation in Aug, and since then went from 2 s9's to 4 s17's. So if they took annual average for my "locked in flat fee" ....I'll soon be robbing them blind when the 5th S17+ arrives.
148  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: Bitmain to release S17E 64TH on: December 26, 2019, 12:29:33 AM
Should be good now.... in short....
hey,we cant deliver 17e 64, how bout a 60.
I said no. But id like a 17+.
Oh, sorry, we cant do that.
I said, that's fine, cancel the order if you cant deliver the requested product and credit my acct.
Um, ok. Place your order and we'll xfer the money from this order.

So I placed an order for a 17+, sent them the order ID #, and asked they apply credit from this order, and finish the difference with credit already in the acct.

This is the last thing I sent:
   Order ID: 001201xxxxxx.   Payment Method:USD
   is the new order. USD wire was selected.

Please cancel order ID 001201910xxxxx and apply credit towards the new order. Additional credit available in my acct should be used to complete the order.



Edit: 12/26.   Email received.  Entire S17+ order paid with credit from the cancelled s17e order and additional acct credit

Then, can you cancel this order, since you cannot supply the correct item. Apply the dollar value to credit. And I will place future orders.

150  Bitcoin / Mining speculation / Electric Rates.... look around in de-regulated states on: December 23, 2019, 11:08:45 PM
I'm mining in PA.  Just a little garage operation. But due to my location, the norm around here is about .10-.11c/kWh. So efficiency was key when buying miners.  I'm still profitable, but I'm quite envious of people with 5-6 cent power.

Well, PA is de-regulated in regards to energy providers.  I've checked rates often, but never seen much more than a 1-2 cent difference between suppliers.

My bill is two parts. The company owning the local poles/wires/infrastructure charges me a portion of the bill for "delivery", usually about 5.5c/kWh.  That part cannot be changed.

The second part of the bill is from the "generation' company who creates the power.  That part we can shop around for.

Local delivery company's generation rate is another 6c or so, so I shopped around and got another company to make the juice for about 5.4c.     Overall, my current billing total is about 10.9c/kWh.

So now that I'm mining, power costs hit the forefront of my mind again. I started looking around the PA power switch website and saw a company offering a FLAT RATE generation fee.  They're charging higher than normal rates (for the avg customer), but with my high usage, theres a huge benefit.

I read thru the 12mo contract, terms and conditions, and all the literature.  There is no loophole to charge me extra. It's a flat $149.99 rate for generation regardless of usage.  They advertise green, clean energy to appeal to those folks, and they make bank off the avg household.

I filled out the form and the switch will occur within a week. Now I will be paying about 5.5c/kWh delivery, plus $150 flat rate for generation.

Here's how the changes work out:

So, 6,000 kWh bill will now be $480/mo..... (Delivery is approx .055c x 6000 = $330..... plus $150 flat generation fee).  Whereas previous bill combined .109 delivery+generation for 6000 kWh would be $654.

Now... the more juice I use... the more I save.

6000 kWh old rate = $654. New plan = $480. 174 saved. 8c kWh rate.
8000 kWh old rate = $872. New plan = $590. 282 saved. 7.3c kWh rate.
10,000 kWh old rate = $1090. New plan = $700. 390 saved. 7c kWh rate.

So if you live in a state that has this option... shop around.

Yeah.  You're really overthinking the joke. 

Relax fella.

I'm sure many others got it, but your defending the finite points and theories that weren't addressed. 

Here's the simple part.... if everyone were homosexual (no attraction to, or interest in boning the opposite sex.... no penis inserted into any vagina ever again)...procreation would end.

I know I know.  You're gonna go with artificial insemination here.

Theorize all you want. We'd run out of homosexuals without heterosexuals
153  Other / Politics & Society / Re: homosexuality is unnatural nonsense from america on: December 22, 2019, 03:13:44 AM
even a lesbian can breed. she doesnt need to love, desire men to get pregnant
But if everyone were homosexual, never interacting with the opposite sex, ....... mass extinction

my statement still stands.
even lesbians want kids. doesnt mean they have to love a man to have kids

Did I ever mention love ?

Without linking a definition, I think most can agree that homosexuality means same sex intercourse, or the opposite of heterosexuality.    Rub two peckers together, you'll never produce a child. Rub two beavers together, you'll never produce a child.  Really is simple science.

154  Other / Politics & Society / Re: homosexuality is unnatural nonsense from america on: December 22, 2019, 02:38:49 AM
If it weren't for heterosexuals, homosexuals would not exist.  Inability to breed would cause extinction.

even a lesbian can breed. she doesnt need to love, desire men to get pregnant

nature itself proves many times that reproduction does not require love, attraction and desire

even human nature shows it
women forced into arranged marriages, men who rape/one night stand with women
women gold diggers who just get pregnant for the child support cheques

Eh. You missed the point.  Or the joke. 

I don't care who sticks what where or licks what.  Have fun. Enjoy.

But if everyone were homosexual, never interacting with the opposite sex, ....... mass extinction

So 3 gangsters break into your home at 3am wielding swords, bats and hammers. They start attacking your family, your children.  You get your firearm to defend your family....... and, nothing...

You have to call the government for authorization to kill the people attacking your kids. You make a call to some call center, which is answered by some lady who reads thru a question and answer checklist. 4-5 minutes later, you authorization to unlock the gun is approved.

Now, you exit your hiding spot with a working firearms, to find your family dead and the intruders are gone.


The fact is not having a gun to protect yourself but the authorities should be able to protect you from gangsters.
If gangsters do not exist from the first place then you don't have the need to own a gun.

So.... you've got the solution to all crime ?
160  Other / Politics & Society / Re: Solutions on: December 18, 2019, 01:39:51 PM
When deadly force is called for, I dont care how many rounds are used. All but one of the cases noted above were justified. The Dorner incident was wrong. I dont want innocents getting hurt.

Ive stated before, a few pages back, most civilians shoot better than cops.
Cops get the the range once, maybe twice per year. Our pen is used more often than our guns. Most cops will never fire a single shot in their career.
Most civilians shoot at static targets while they are in a relaxed and focused state, with no one shooting back at you. Most cop shootings occur at an extremely high adrenaline/physical activity/excited level, while trying to avoid incoming fire.
   What are the accuracy statistics for rounds on target in military skirmishes? Probably not much better.
Try driving 100mph thru traffic, sliding to a stop, running 100yds, and then taking that shot. You'll miss too.
Contagious shooting is a real term we study. You're staring at at armed guy who you think will start shooting at you. There's 4 or 5 of your friends around thinking the same thing. You're waiting for the moment you'll be forced to pull the trigger, some sound, sight, movement. You hear gunshots and you react, thinking its the bad guy shooting. You didnt see a muzzle flash, but senses are dulled due to the adrenaline. You fire, and you are trained to fire until the threat stops, whether it be 2 or 15 rounds. The bad guy drops to the ground. You later find out 4 cops fired at the same time, until they saw the threat drop.  It happens, and wont change.
Civilian shooting usually involve one or two shots and everyone running away in fear. Cops shootings usually involve a standoff, with the shooter standing his ground.
It's apples and oranges in the end.
