Looks like he was on after one of my PMs to him.  He might have missed it.  I think you can set the forum to not notify you of new PMs.

The GPUs he sold me are all good. A 1KW Silverstone is kinda ok too. It shuts down when I try running 5 GPUs on it. Maybe just needs a good cleaning.  Not worried about the PSU.
The problem is one of the mobos.  MSI GD70 won't boot. No POST.

Was thinking of RMAing it, but I have never dealt with MSI RMAs and based on what I've read about MSI RMA process, not sure I'd get one before ASICs arrive  Cheesy
He's also got an extra 5830 he's RMAing to Sapphire before he ships it out to me.

Anyway, just trying to get a hold of him to resolve the situation.  I'm not really worried about anything.  Graet's got all my money.  Grin

According to BFL, shipping will begin in 2-3 weeks.. People need to be ready to milk those asics


So it looks like not many pools are ready for ASICS?

The ones that are will leave the rest behind..
if ASIC are getting delivered tomorrow, yes.
BUT as ASIC will not be here until December sometime (at earliest)... plenty of time Smiley
Personally I think this thread is rather premature.

That's in "BFL Time".  Add 6 months for the first batch.  Then assume 4-6 weeks delivery is 4-6 months for the first year.

LOL!  "BFL Time!" I love it.

In general, the large pools are bad in terms of support  decentralization,
I recommend the use of medium-sized

such polmine.pl which supports   GBT

I'd recommend against using polmine.  They stole about 4BTC from me last year when they froze payouts and then retroactively switched payout methods.

How about the simpler approach of having standard tags on the messages. Something like:

<Sale/Buy>-<Country or region trader is in>-<Optional country or region trader is willing to trade with, assumed Worldwide unless specified otherwise>
eg.
[WTS-Europe]
[WTS-Spain-Europe]
[WTB-US]
[WTB-US-US/Canada]
[WTB-Australia-Asia]

Trying to get a hold of Gomeler regarding our transaction.  Tried sending a PM but got no response.
Hoping he sees this post.

Still trying to get a hold of Gomeler.  He hasn't responded to any of my PMs since Thursday.
Not sure what to do.

Have that issue when you restart your router and Bamt won't reconnect been fixed yet?

I have already applied all fixes but didn't seem to fix it.

Despite the widespread perception that they'd be first to market I chose to order elsewhere because of BFL's history of deceitful shipping date shell games. Also despite assurances that they'd do better this time, it feels like a bunch of song and dance. I can't see myself doing business with them going forward.

Same!  I had several very early pre-orders for BFL SCs.  I was able to sell those preorders for a nice profit and put my eggs in a different basket  Grin

Guys.  Why are you surprised?  BFL "ship date" for FPGA Single was Oct 2011 the first boards went out in March and really didn't hit volume production until April or May.   It was summer before the shipping delays were less than 2 months. 

That was with off the shelf FPGA.  People pre-ordered with 100% funds paid in advance.  BFL risks nothing by having delays.

WHY would you expect it to be different?    Based on the FPGA launch I would say add six months to the promised date and if they beat that deadline (Oct 2012 = April 2013) then consider it "early".

Oh god... if you are right, I will be in heaven  Grin

You fellers are bringin' the perty music to my ears. Grin

If BFL is that late and bASIC units ship on schedule, then their owners will have paid off units in weeks.

Why didn't this whole inspection happen weeks ago ?


Maybe there's nothing to inspect?

Bought the 32 referral package for 0.5BTC.

OP was very responsive to questions and provided it quickly.

Hope the referrals will hold up over time, if not I will let you know here -- but for now very, very good service and delivery.

I agree.  Very responsive to emails.  Very patient with me as I asked questions.  Once I sent the btc the referals were created within 60 minutes.

Top notch service.  Thanks!

I mine on Slush since the begining (Dec 2010), it was the first pool created, the guy is very present, professional, and act quickly if needed.  I'm very satisfied in that pool, nice website, all fine for me...

Slush rules `;)

Been mining on Slush since i got into bitcoin a month ago. steady payouts, Slush is responsive and friendly when you have a question or concern.

Slush is still hoppable Wink

Just sayin...

Alright, one more scenario, more extreme:

Let's assume $12/BTC, $0.25/kwh power cost, and 1000 TH network hashrate after reward halving.

Hypothetical device that does 60 GH, costs $1300, and uses 60W:
$100K buys about 4600 GH of hardware which will use about 4.6kW of power and earn about $5980 per month, minus about $830 for power, for 5.15% monthly ROI.

Hypothetical device that does 54 GH, costs $1070, and uses 405W:
$100K buys about 5100 GH of hardware which will use about 38kW of power and earn about $6630 per month, minus about $6885 for power, for -0.26% monthly ROI. Uh oh.

Hypothetical device that does 54 GH, costs $1070, and uses 120W:
$100K buys about 5100 GH of hardware which will use about 11kW of power and earn about $6630 per month, minus about $2040 for power, for 4.59% monthly ROI.

But someone with $100K to invest, ought to find a better place to setup than where power costs $0.25/kwh.

And if ~5% monthly ROI were attractive to professional miners, why has mining been historically much more profitable than that, except when the exchange rate fell toward $2? I think 10-20% monthly ROI will continue for the next year or so at least. Though a price war among mining devices could really screw ROI up.

Red bold emphasis is mine.  

Q: Where in the "real world" will you find MONTHLY returns like that?
A: No where.

This is why I feel investing in bitcoin is a great investment, beyond all the other benefits that bitcoin will provide.
