Just a poll to get a sense of what bASIC customers are doing now that the first "due diligence" meeting went south.

As stated before - if Tom's teeth were on fire, I wouldn't even try to help him out by pissing on his face..

His abortion attempt at the ASIC game was down right hideous.. I would almost welcome DBAG_Josh berating me as a BFL customer than to have dealings with Mr. Tom ever again.

Dave and some other helpful members have managed to keep people updated somewhat along with refund processing.. without them, I couldn't even imagine how things would be playing out right now..

For now, still GPU mining.. will re-eval when I see someone that actually ships something..

Nope... But you would add a choice like "I will order from Avalon after new chinese year year".

No shit.  The switching to BFL option might as well read "jumping out of the frying pan into the fire."  As it looks (to me) at present.

This whole poll is actually most likely to provide info useful to BFL to decide when to exit stage left.  To the extent that polls on bitcointalk.org have any reliability at all.

---

pre-post edit to OP:  make the option be something like "Avalon when possible."

---

BTW, for those who are unfamiliar with how at least some of the more successful open-source hardware projects work:  The actual goal is to get out of hardware manufacture and distribution altogether.  What you actually sell is expertise to people who have specific needs and what-not.  If an organization in intimately familiar with all aspects of the project (like because they designed the reference hardware and software) then they are better prepared to deliver on engineering projects and have a lot more legitimacy than some random jerk-off.  This only works well in certain circumstances, and only works if the organization has demonstrable superiority in engineering and reliability.  That ~nzhang guy seems to have some potential here in the mining hardware space.

Of course I have no idea whether this is the path that Avalon wishes to take.  I'll only put some focus on researching them when they demonstrate delivery of a viable ASIC unit.

I can add that, but it would seem that if the leader of the project cannot show up for one of the most important meeting of BTC FPGA's life, seems kind of pointless to keep up hope.

Can you add a "I'm not a bASIC customer, but I'm interested in the results" ?

NM I now see the "View Results" option. Tongue

I feel bad for defending Tom as long as I did on these forums.... because of me some people might of invested in bASIC instead of Avalon/BFL and are now screwed.

I urge everyone not to overreact. If everyone cancels their orders, I can see Tom having trouble paying everyone back. Keep this in mind... I'd rather get a late ASIC than nothing at all and no refund.

I stayed as long as I could, but this is very upsetting to me. Refund requested. Now it looks like BFL and Avalon.

I had placed orders with Avalon and bASIC.

Now I just have the Avalon order left.  bASIC refunded me, mercifully.

With Avalon a week from shipping, I'm just hoping I don't pee my pants in anticipation waiting for it.

If Avalon delivers and works as promised, I imagine I will be ordering more of them in their next batch.

(I learned about mining ASICs too late to get a reasonable position on the BFL boat, so did not pursue them.)
