It's still under heavy development, but you might want to look into this:

We (BitPay) like moving to "bits" …Jeff has written a blog post articulating how we intend to make the transition if we feel there is a consensus to go in this direction.

There's gonna be a shitload of Local Bitcoin meetups that's for sure  Shocked
Bitpay is in Atlanta. Maybe we could get them involved somehow too.
Bitcoin Panel is at 1pm tomorrow.

For non-nodejs people, you should now be able to install this as follows:
a) install nodejs (from nodejs.org)
b) run: $ npm install -g txtool

After that, you should be able run txtool from the shell:
$ txtool

This installs the nodejs txtool package with all dependencies in your global nodejs environment and then creates a symlink to the executable in your $PATH (usually /usr/local/bin).

Was the single shipped with power supply unit?
No...I don't think they had power supplies in stock and gave me the option of taking delivery without the PSU (which I did).

How much are you going to sell it for?
It's not for sale.
7  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: BFL Single Arrived today ... ~60Gh/s on: June 22, 2013, 12:38:32 AM
Beautiful!  Glad to hear they are slowly but surely being shipped out.

Just wanted to ask if the noise created by the miner was audibly irritating.  Heard the Jalapeno was loud and wondering if I had better plan on placing my future single sc in the garage.  
I can't really tell because the noise of the computer I have it hooked up to is drowning it out.  It's being driven by an RPi, but I needed the computer for it's power supply...I also can't get an accurate power reading because of the power draw from the computer components also on the same power supply...when I have more time I'll get it on a standalone power supply.

Ok, I had to know...I disconnected all the computer components and plugged it into a kill-a-watt ...it's drawing about 280 watts.

Order date was the first day they started taking orders in late June last year.

My BFL Single arrived today...it is now mining successfully with bfgminer-3.1.0 (I had to upgrade from 3.0.2 to get it to work). It is getting close to 60 Gh/s. It is being powered via two PCIe power connectors from a typical computer power supply and it's being driven by a Raspberry Pi (which is also driving a jalapeño).

Never sell a bitcoin for USD!! SPEND IT on things or service or commodities.
+1000 I've never understood the logic in selling bitcoins.

The logic resides in the fact that fiat currency is still very stable for the most part. Bitcoin hasn't been over the years. When it comes to finances people want some stability. If they can make some money through a bitcoin investment or they can cashout to prevent losing their entire investment you will have a hard time convincing people not to.
That isn't logic, it's normalcy bias.  Use bitcoins to buy things when you need to buy things, but for goodness sake don't trade it for an inferior form of money.  I fear that too many people new to bitcoin don't understand this simple concept and they're selling bitcoin out of fear that it might trade lower...or they want to lock in some gains.  Some people say that bitcoin can't go up in value forever...but in fact it can.  In fact, it's designed to go up in value forever over any sufficiently long timeframe so long as it's the best form of money in existence (which it is and will likely forever be).

It would be fun to see how many Bitcoin autos you could get lined up in one location.
18  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Dangerous precedents set on March 12 2013 on: March 16, 2013, 05:54:39 AM
There is a market for securing transactions.  Markets consist of both consumers (bitcoin users) and suppliers (miners).  Miners could have decided to go to 0.8, but it's not clear to me that 0.7 still wouldn't have won out in the long run.  The consumers could have decided to stay on 0.7 and any miners still mining on 0.7 would have still been providing a transaction security service to those users.  If that service was adequate (blocks continued to be found at a reasonable pace), it's quite easy to imagine that as the 0.7 chain continued on, miners that had previously switched to 0.8 would realize that they weren't servicing a large population of users...they could have then made the rational decision to switch back to 0.7.  The 0.7 chain would slowly regain momentum, overtaking 0.8 and ultimately providing transaction security to the entire community of 0.7 and 0.8 users.  Those miners that had continued on the 0.8 fork would lose all their mining revenues.

Conversely, consumers, seeking the most secure service and seeing the mining community transitioning to 0.8 might have made the rational decision to incur the work of upgrading to 0.8.

The decision that miners made was to serve the largest pool of consumers of their services.  Targeting the largest market of users with your mining capacity is probably the best policy (and would likely ensure that you, as a miner, are on the block chain most likely to survive).

I might throw up a bounty to do an "intermediate code generator" as well.  (this won't be hard - just another simple recipe using scrypt,sha256,base58)

Here is what I imagine... another tab that says "Encrypted Wallets"

On the tab there would be two functions: generate intermediate code, and decrypt encrypted wallet

THe intermediate code takes a passphrase and makes a code (or series of codes) out of it.  The code can be used by someone else to generate bip38-encrypted paper wallets without knowing the passphrase.  Intermediate code generator takes a passphrase as input, and outputs a string that simply encodes 4 bytes of salt, 4 bytes of a combined "batch" and "sequence" number, and one compressed EC point.  The EC point is G * sha256(scrypt(passphrase, salt, 16384, 8, 8 ) + batch+sequence bytes) or something substantially similar.  The sequence number can be incremented to create more intermediate codes from the same passphrase without repeating the scrypt.
+1 ...I could really use this and would be willing to contribute to make it happen as well.  I just want the ability to create nicely printed paper wallets where the private key is encrypted.

We payout all merchants daily regardless of what currency they choose to be paid in (in the cases of USD or other national currencies, we payout as the banking system allows...which means we can't payout on weekends or holidays).  We do not hold funds on behalf of merchants, BitcoinASIC is no exception.
