221  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: Incoming Avalon News 8/9/2013 on: August 11, 2013, 11:27:22 AM

I guess you two ordered like 2 chips together? 1 x K1 for each of you?
I can not believe that someone with larger ammount of chips stolen would make such comments.

pajak666 has been sending me PMs.  He seems very unhappy with my posting content.  This post may not make him happier.

I won't reveal a PM; however I point out that my avatar is my real image, and my nick is clearly related to my real life identity.  I stand behind what I post.

I also spent about 10-15 years being very angry, and the justification for that anger was strong.  But anger only eats up the angry person from the inside.  I have been cheated, I have been slandered, I have been shot; anger kept me tied in the past, to events that were a permanent part of my history and which I could not change.  I have chosen that I will go forward in a productive way.  I will make my decisions on what is, and not what I believe should have been.

I have made a real life decision that no amount of angst about bitcoins will match:  I had the death penalty decision in a Texas court about the man who shot us in my lap.  From that perspective, many postings here are temper tantrums from whiny children who need to grow up.

I originally thought I could make perhaps $16,000 / month with each Batch #2 Avalon delivered in March.  That money would have been very helpful in my life.  I am personally in touch with the reality and the implications of shipping delays.

I have a few questions for pajak666.
1.  How much do you have at risk?
2.  How much did you project that you would make in the next year from item #1?
3.  What action, that is possible today, will satisfy you?

If you cannot be satisfied, then you are the troll.  If you can be satisfied, then articulate what you want.  Keep in mind that it will not seem feasible to receive chips tomorrow, nor to receive a refund yesterday.  

Also, with no regard whatsoever as to whether you believe Yufi, it will work best for you to read his words exactly and to construct your responses as if they are literally true.  If they are true, then you are ahead of the game.  If they are not true, you will maneuver him into a corner.  In time, more facts will emerge;  I plan not to look the fool when they do.

If his words are true and you spread FUD, you, and not he, are the bad actor.

As someone who has been shot and watched a daughter die, I have a very hard line on postings that advocate violence.  They are across the line.  No amount of hand waving that they are a joke or you were angry, or thoughtless, or drunk, or that you apologize will repair their cumulative damage.  They are simply wrong.

With no regard whatsoever to the idea that I have been harmed to the level of $16,000 or $30,000 by shipping delays, it harms the future value of my bitcoins for the community to act like jerks.  If bitcoins are a niche thing that only angry anarchist use, they are wortheless, and if our community postings make us seem that way, we jeopardize the adoption in real commerce and it would not matter whether you can mine today or not.  

Quit peeing in the pool.

I would add some of my experience through life what have I learned.

For every bad thing that is happening to us, are we alone responsible. The life runs in two ways. There are two type of people. The first one (95%), are trying tackle the consequences, are looking for penalties, reasons how that happen to them, looking for guilty one, blame other. The second one (5%) are people who learn life ways. They know that if one thing happen to them, many times, they obviouslly do something wrong (illnes for example). They are responsible for what they do and they know the risk, which THEY ALONE TAKE.

This is one of the really good values to have in life. And everything around good human values, happynes, love, health, relationships, can be learned.

The mentality of people just went to far. While we should be looking on ourselfs, our sight is oriented on others.

Now if I take this lesson, I can write down: Everyone here pissed, can blame only himslef. If you want to be happy you should look at the source of the problem add some responsibility and remove expectations.
222  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: PAYING 5 BITCOIN to figure out how to overclock my BFL Mini rigs. on: August 09, 2013, 12:43:19 AM
For that there's a quiet some work and for the first I will need the unit alone to discover the clock in firmware through JTAG, then take open source firmware that BFL released and program a new firmware. After that theres only coding and having the right microcontroller. Whats left is make proper testing.

We will be keeping everyone updated on our progress on here and on our website, but if you have any more questions please don't hesitate to send them over and we'll see if we can add them to our FAQ post.

I will gladly like to know what is your range of delivery the first products?

Thanks, Tad
224  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: [ANN] xCrowd *** US/UK *** TH/s Units on: August 07, 2013, 11:47:35 PM

I was writing to you on FB, now I see you're answering here, I will be glad to hear the answers on those questions,

You're mentioning Escrow, that means you're taking only BTC for payment even if the device prices are in dollars?

Would you be handing over some free devices for test users who can make a report to proof your delivery, functioning, testing of devices?

Will be devices sent from Europe or anywhere else?

Thank you for all the answers, you might provide on those questions.

Best regards, Tad

225  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: HashFast announces specs for new ASIC: 400GH/s on: July 29, 2013, 10:22:01 PM
My advice is avoid any large scale mining purchases that have the slightest sniff of a centralized mining farm. It's bad for the BTC network. Just look at what ASICminer have done to spoil mining for all. Keep that hash rate spread around as much as possible.

The going rate on new ASIC releases should be less than $20 per GH/s or it wont be a happy ROI.

Well, we are all looking to meet those criteria! But there are a few problems!

  • The money would always find a way to money. That means the people with money will buy as much units as they want.
  • The second thing, if I use psychology, is the company is not going to have a 12 different prices for a single product. That means that not everyone on this planet is thinking about money, BUT everyone needs it for living (our monetary system).
  • Third thing is, if the company wants to reach as many people as they can, they should equaly proportionally send out the devices according to devices available: 10 devices available, 3 people gets 1 device, 2 people gets 2 devices and one human gets 3 devices.
  • And the last one is, that companies, does not use the psychology in selling. While they want money ASAP, they forget about selling psychology and one of the advantages of targeting more people and also selling something that is wanted from a lot people, is that, the product can be sold: one product for one customer.

It is any option to get board drawings, CAM, PDF, information of components used?

229  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: HashFast announces specs for new ASIC: 400GH/s on: July 25, 2013, 10:03:38 PM
What sort of plan do you have in place to protect the bitcoin network as a whole when you will be shipping devices this powerful?  Just to put things in perspective- if you were to have these chips finalized today, a single 3000 chip reel of them would represent 1200 TH of hash power, which is nearly 500% of what the entire bitcoin network is today.  Will you be offering bulk chips for sale in these sorts of quantities, or will you be limiting your sales?  

Of course I realize that we're going to be a helluva lot higher than 250TH come october, but even if the network were to hit 1000 TH by then, a single reel of chips would *still* be enough to hold more than 51% of the hash power.

HashFast is absolutely committed to promoting the bitcoin and protecting the BTC ecosystem and will work towards ensuring that no one entity controls more than 50%.

This is what is probably the most important thing what we are looking for. There should be restrictions how much units can one customer buy. Therefore many more people can buy hardware. Also there are other "fair play" methods if you understand the psychology Wink
230  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: Off-Topic on: July 23, 2013, 09:28:05 AM

sorry, this is a little late and I'm sure you've already made your choice, but the comment about "I don't care about power $ or noise" prompted me to drop my 2 cents in here...

I just recently bought one of these seasonic 1000W platinum PSU's and I absolutely love it so far (will have to wait 7 years to see if it out-lives its warranty, lol)

For me, $ was also not an issue, and this is not a cheap PSU, so I'm sure there might be a better value for the dollar. But when considering the cost and availability of a power supply vs the kind of hardware we are powering, it does not make sense to me to skimp on a PSU... Also, heat and efficiency (they kind of go hand-in-hand) are a big deal for me, and this PSU is simply excellent in that regard.

I cannot recommend any other PSU as highly as this one. If anyone has an opinion of a better 1000W (or higher) PSU, please bring it to my attention. Thanks.

On this page  I saw that this PSU has no 6-pin PCI-E connectors which are needed to power K16. Or did I miss if it's somehow possible to make a 6-pin out of 8-pin?

USB problem?

From USB wikipedia ...

A charging port supplies up to 500 mA at 5 V, up to the rated current at 3.6 V or more, and drop its output voltage if the portable device attempts to draw more than the rated current. The charger port may shut down if the load is too high.

234  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: Off-Topic on: July 08, 2013, 04:57:15 PM
I asked for a refund. It was ignored. I asked for a refund again. It was ignored.

I made a paypal claim asking for a refund. I was *denied*.

I upgraded it to a dispute. The terrahash site says I have it refunded, but I don't see the money in my paypal account, even as pending.

Well, this is not good. If they say, they will refund you, if you cancel before they ship, they will. Their "ignorance" (speaking in your language), as you see, just makes you more freightened, so you panikct and worse thinkgs up. Dispute as you have read allready, lasts longer to solve, but if they refund case by case, I suggest next time, to be extremelly patient.

Anyone that says Terrahash customer service is shitty needs to wake up.

You are obviously living in a dreamland.

If you placed an "PRE"order for an undeveloped product of ANY kind with a delivery date, then you should expect maybe around 1 or so updates per week until they finally have all the parts delivered.

If you pre-ordered and can't take a week of silence before getting a preorder, that just means you should stick with a savings account and try to earn some measly interest on your money because mining isn't for you.

It seems like there a two different kinds of people in here.

People that understand businesses, refunds,  and the hours they operate. (These people don't have any issues with Terrahash)

People that don't understand any of the above and try calling non-work hour, sending tickets in with incorrect information, trying to use Terrahash as a hedge for their coins, etc... (These are the vocal idiots in this thread that are having issues)

Flame me all you want, the facts are in your posts.

90% of the people having issues are morons, I apologize to the 10% that are just having bad luck and I would simply keep on trying to resolve it with Terrahash as everytime I've talked with them they have been more than helpful.

Great words mate!!
238  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: Off-Topic on: July 06, 2013, 08:09:42 AM
I see theres a lot of different characteristic values fighting each other on this forum. I would suggest to anyone who cannot stay quiet before he writes his pessimistic words to logout of this forum for a while. You'll get attention about something else, and after a while you're gonna see the things totally deifderent.

However TH has still nit manage to deal with paypal and they will tell us if they have done it. Before that any refund through paypal only harden things up in TH - paypal progress.

The second thing is that TH will provide refund, if you're gonna request for them before your item will be shipped, so theres absollutelly no reason to dispute right now!!

Third thing is, TH stil did not get any preordered Avalon chips, so we are still in time  for when they get the chips.

If you're thinking they are not somehow doing enogh for us, that is obvious your own thing, so please after you deal with your impatience, do look again, and write some supporting words.

Many of you are getting people frightening for no reason at all.
