I'm sure people who use this got the email last night, but since it wasn't mentioned on here,

Dear User,

We regret to inform you that GPUMAX will be permanently closing on
October 31st, 2012.

While we strongly believe in Bitcoin's continued success, our vision
has always been to provide our users with the greatest opportunities
to utilize their GPU processing power. Creating a mining marketplace
was meant to be the first of many such opportunities, however, due to
the events of recent months, we feel that the best course of action is
to cease all operations.

Thank you for participating in our beta.



[21:59] <@[\\\]> how come they say they are from ?
[21:59] <@zux0r> it's the domain I actually have complete control over

That email came from, not lol
I would say it's a fake to try and get people to ditch gpumax and join that site.

603  Other / Off-topic / Re: BFL offers 1000 BTC back up on power claims on: October 20, 2012, 04:30:31 PM
Since Tom is refusing to actually make the bet he himself proposed between us, I am offering up a guarantee of 1000 BTC to charity (I will take suggestions on which charity to donate this to) if BFL does not meet it's power claims within 10% - meaning if BFL's power consumption is more than 66w for a Single SC, we lose the "bet."

Now, I ask if Tom is willing to step up and back the winning side.  He is 100% confident that we will not meet our power claims (which is the genesis of the failed bet), and as such I ask that he pony up 1000 BTC to the same charity if we do make our power claims.  

So there it is:  Tom is confident that we won't make our power claims, I am confident that we will.  I am willing to put up 1000 BTC to show my confidence in BFL products.  Is Tom confident enough to do the same or is he just blowing hot air?

Wait.. wut?

Subject line says: "BFL offers 1000 BTC back up on power claims"
Is BFL backing this bet?
You are posting as Inaba.  I thought the bet was between you and Tom, not between BFL and Tom.
Shouldn't you be posting as BFL_Josh?

604  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: High Efficiency FPGA & ASIC Bitcoin Mining Devices on: October 20, 2012, 04:18:15 PM
That's an easy question to answer, Tom.  Because you are lying to your customers.  More specifically, you lied about BFL's power and I called you out.  You are also lying about being "competitive*"  If you had not lied, I wouldn't be here... but there you have it.

Please, prove me wrong, Tom.  Tell us what your "competitive" power is likely to be. While you're at it, please show figures as to how you know BFL's power is impossible.

* For any reasonable value of "competitive"

After this recent spate of BFL "customer service" I'm glad I dumped my BFL preorders on some poor saps and loaded up on the bASIC.  BFL has time to troll competitor's threads but not respond to customer emails?  Good riddance BFL.  How's that response from Sonny coming along?  Any day now right?
605  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: High Efficiency FPGA & ASIC Bitcoin Mining Devices on: October 20, 2012, 04:14:02 PM
Haha good job sweeping that pesky "power" issue under the rug, Tom!  Maybe you can keep your dirty little power problem a secret long enough to gain a few more pre-orders before the secret comes out.  Smiley  WTG for transparency.

I also notice you squeaked your way out of the bet, too.  Quality work there!  Won't even back up the bet YOU tried to initiate for charity.

Attitude like this that makes BFL stink. Rotten to the core...

That's probably what "customer service" means over at BFL
606  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: High Efficiency FPGA & ASIC Bitcoin Mining Devices on: October 19, 2012, 03:00:07 AM

Inaba, I will personally bet you 1000 BTC that BFL's line of ASIC devices will consume more electricity than 1.1 watt per 1Gh/s of Bitcoin mining speed.
( .1 or (10%) to compensate for that power subsystem optimization)

Great sale, Abra got the rig and is mining already, I got the coins


Confirmed.  All is good. Thx 420!

And of course, as always, thx to Graet.  Anyone that wants to use a Great Escrow Service, contact Graet.  Grin

@ BFL_Josh (Inaba)

The biggest concern of mine is not electricity use if it remains within a certain range. What concerned me the most is what was the safe operating temperature for the mining hardware.

Winter is coming to the northern Hemisphere. So the heat put out by these devices will not be noticable if BFL or bASIC ships out in the next 2 to 3 months. But after Febuary, if one of these devices has to be cooled with Air Conditioning, then that would make a big dent in the profit margin. It would have been a deal breaker to add 1 to 2 kilowatts of power consumption during the following spring, summer and fall. As well as affect the reliability of the device.

Thank you for your recent answers on your mining device. That helped me understand that you have taken this into account and have designed safety features (well BFL_Engineer did at least) so that the device would not suffer from a heat related issue.

Those of us coming into summer will have this well tested before your summer rolls around Wink
(assuming delivery before your summer) Tongue

People in Australia mine bitcoins? and have ordered ASICs??  Shocked Shocked Shocked

What is this world coming to!!!

So which pools do you suggest?

I like ozcoin  Cheesy

I've come to an agreement with Gomeler as follows:

Seller to ship the following:

Rig 1
3x Sapphire HD 5850s
2x Sapphire HD 5830
AMD Sempron 145
MSI 890FX GD70
1x2GB DDR3-1333C9
250GB 2.5" HDD
2 PCIe extenders

Rig 2
5x Sapphire HD 5830s
AMD Sempron 145
MSI 890FX GD70
1x2GB DDR3-1333C9
250GB 2.5" HDD
2 PCIe extenders

5 pieces x16->x16 PCIe riser cables

Buyer offers $1140
BTC conversion rate will be Mt.Gox last at time of transfer to escrow agent.
Seller is responsible for all shipping costs.
Deal to be escrowed via Graet (ozcoin pool operator) as escrow agent.
Rigs will be tested by buyer when received to ensure that rigs are able to mine at standard engine clock rates.
Escrow agent to release funds to seller "Gomeler" upon buyer satisfied with condition of rigs, not to exceed 10 hours after receipt by buyer.

I'll transfer funds to escrow as soon as Gomeler and Graet witnesses and Graet sends me an escrow addy.

Edit: Updated transaction requirements, added US shipping, added BTC sweetener, added images, delete image from bfl

You might have problems doing this deal without using escrow.  Not sure how reversible PopMoney is, if you fail to ship anything.  Huh
614  Bitcoin / Pools / Re: What is better Ozcoin or Eclipse on: October 15, 2012, 03:40:15 AM
Der, should I pay a fee or not.. Der dee der...
Put another way, do you want to pay a small fee to support the pool and get paid transaction fees or pay no fee and not get paid transaction fees (and potentially lose the pool in the future)?

617  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: "Avalon" ASIC, announcement & pre-order. pre-order over. project started. on: October 14, 2012, 02:31:51 PM
What I want to say is:
It's not fair to promote the first batch with: "Order now for $ 1299 instead of $ 1999" and 2 days after people have paid, to reduce the normal price at $ 1299!
That's bullshit!
I feel misled!

If this would have done BFL, we would have 10 new threads!!!!

I don't understand... You ordered because you thought the price would be higher later?

When you ordered you knew the price going in.  You ordered.  Will you order more now if I tell you that ASICs will be worth $1 in 10 years?

If you're interested, offer me something Smiley

That's ok, I'll pass.  Just FYI, I believe that most people are turned off to sales ads that dont' list an asking price.
I know I do, but maybe it's just me. *shrug*

#1 - How much are you asking?
#2 - You mentioned you are in Canada, but near Detroit.  Would you ship from US side to a US shipping address?
