Also, I'm not aware of any statement that they are switching to the cgminer fork instead of sticking with BFGMiner.

I see your reality distortion field is in full operation. BFGMiner was forked from CGMiner. It will always be so, no matter how many times you try to convince others of the inverse.

It's a pretty weak distortion field at that Tongue.  I just hope that BFGMiner (which the BFL android app will be using) is or has been fixed with proper stratum support as is the case in CG Miner.

It has had excellent stratum support for quite a number of rev's now and i prefer it to CGMiner - especially 2.10.2 with the Zero Stats feature.. love that..

BFGMiner was forked from CGMiner-the-GPU-miner. CGMiner-with-modular-device-support came from BFGMiner.

I may have misread him, so if I did, I"m sorry. It's been a weird couple of days. Maybe I'm thinking of them saying that they would release an image with the included CGMiner, and they never did?

I may have contributed to the confusion when I mentioned I used a xiangfu-designed OpenWRT binary with cgminer support with my Icarus. I apologize if anyone thought I was implying malfeasance on the Avalon development team's part. I have no idea if they are going to use bfgminer or cgminer or something completely different. I would suspect they will be supporting a lot of different options, not just in choice of miner.

No, You added Modular device support to CGMiner via acceptance from the CGMiner project maintainer, and threw a hissy fit when some of your changes were either rejected or took too long to be merged and then you forked BFGminer from CGMiner. Just because you contributed code to CGMiner and later forked the project does not make your delusions that CGMiner was forked from BFGMiner true. Yes you contributed code to CGMiner and then forked the project. CGMiner is not a fork of BFGminer and you know it. You use your delusion to try to make yourself look superior in some way.  You have even removed CGMiner from the wiki as well. You sir seem to have some self esteem issues (as in you use this reality distortion field of yours to hopefully make people think you are superior - it's not working).

For those that cant seem to get past his Reality Distortion Field, here is the proof.

Way to add some value to the discussion.  I've quoted the parts I liked.

Maybe it's business as usual in China on Sundays?  I guess I don't know, myself.

I do know that DHL Express will provide Sunday delivery in the US, by request.

@dust

if you recall there some server problem when the site first launched, please send me a email/PM with your bitcoin order ID and payment address so I may manually check aganist the system.

The system was automatically set orders to cancel if they have not been paid, and since due to server errors some order which got paid never got the call back to mark them as completed thus were in turn canceled.

No worries though, we keep all the records so we can double check aganist this.
Any update on this?  I sent a PM within 15 minutes of your reply and have received no response or update to my ticket  I'm sure the team is busy Smiley
I still have received no communication from Avalon about this and my paid order is still listed as cancelled.  I'm getting concerned as the shipping date is very near, and I believe there are other customers with the same problem as well.

Not sure if this truck that's being unloaded is of packages arriving into or out of China, but... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ztBF9NuaSY

Transport and logistics is a 24/7 industry.  Their consignment may be collected or they may be dropping it off themselves.  I wouldn't worry about the Sunday thing - the real question is how long it's going to take from the time the packages are scanned into the transport company's system until they start being delivered to their final destinations and that will likely vary as customs clearance times always seem to be something of a lottery.  Tracking information also seems to be extremely hit and miss, so I guess there are going to be many nervous moments until the first customer confirms that they've received their ASIC.

All I can say is that this is Bitcoin. I don't believe it until I see six confirmations.

DHL Express is special in that for many countries they have Customs agents for the destination country actually on the planes, clearing the cargo as it's en route.

That's one way they're able to be so awesomely fast.

Yeah, I've found in the past when shipping shit that some companies really have their shit together when it comes to customs stuff and others don't.  I've also found that sometimes it's better to take your stuff to the airport yourself so that you're there when your consignment gets scanned in than to have it picked up (because if it's picked up you have no control over when it gets processed and can't double check the paperwork and fix errors before it actually gets put on a plane).

Just ignore Jesus, he puts his personal whacked out opinions all over the Bitcoin wiki - the wiki is a joke and not worth taking much notice of any page that has his name on any changes.
To be blunt, the Bitcoin wiki is a joke and bad publicity for Bitcoin - and the fools who run it don't seem to care either.

Anyway, I've recently written a new full USB cgminer interface that uses libusb and implemented MMQ FPGA and BFL FPGA on that.
Not the old outdated serial-USB code that the old backward Jesus clone uses.
Direct USB has a bunch of advantages already (and it's ready for the new ASIC devices)

Though, it is a pity that a crap decision by Jesus to use the crappy serial-USB ~a year ago has lead to the ASIC devices still restricting their performance to suit that silly choice ...

Once the version one ASIC devices are released, I might then contact the manufacturers, that actually succeed in releasing an ASIC, about upgrading their MCU hardware out of the 1900s serial I/O to the more advanced USB I/O and get some very likely performance boosts due to that ...

Hey, are we going to start betting on what their excuse for not shipping will be?
I say that the hand of god intervened and they, are as frustrated as we are of the delay but we need to wait just 3 more weeks. Smiley
