BitSyncom said they shipped, and mentioned two of the recipients. He didn't say only two were shipped.

You're right.  I don't think this will change anything until several people are posting pictures and screenshots.

I just want my goddamn asics already!  I'll be able to retire and sell all my customs rigs, and then install the 7970 in my 'puter so I can PEW PEW PEW it up in BF3 again!

IIRC there have only been 2 shipped out, In my eyes thats nothing, They could have had someone testing the units frist before mass ship-out, And because they have paid, It counted as delivered.

We'll see how the network hashrate is affected over the next week or two.

They shipped two units, or less than 1% of their order count as of now. That's basically the same as not shipping.

Ye they've shipped out 2 prototypes Smiley

Well, let's wait for Jeff's report. If there is one working ASIC unit - prototype or not - it should not be a big deal to make additional units.

For what it's worth, I think the attitude is going to be the same when other companies ship as well - people aren't going to be satisfied until end users are posting pictures and reports.  And that's fair enough, really.

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

It has proven so in the past with Bitcoin Magazine, so it will likely continue to be so in the future.

Last time I checked, not every country in the world does the whole Monday -> Friday = "the week" and Saturday -> Sunday = "the weekend" thing. But I have no clue what the custom is in China, or perhaps even that of the province Avalon team are working out of.
China has a 'regular' workweek like the rest of the world, where factories do work on a Saturday and logistics companies work around the clock. How else do you think the packages delivered on Monday arrive at the sorting center, if they would shut down things on a Friday evening?

I have personally delivered packages at the main UPS sorting center here on a Saturday evening to make sure they were shipped out on a Monday, not sure if I'd be welcome on a Sunday (probably a union thing) but surely in China anything is possible. If I look at the dates of the tracking you see loads of activity on a Sunday.

The only country I've dealt with so far that had a different workweek was in the Middle East. Iran has a Thursday/Friday weekend due to religious traditions. Israel has a work week that starts on a Sunday.

And I'm not sure why my 'cal' command always generates this:
Code:
    January 2013
Su Mo Tu We Th Fr Sa
       1  2  3  4  5
 6  7  8  9 10 11 12
13 14 15 16 17 18 19
20 21 22 23 24 25 26
27 28 29 30 31

For some people the workweek does start on a Sunday.

Our lab is open 24/7, no weekend here ;-)
