Could someone with a low Batch 1 number call DHL and check if they have any tracking?
Whats low? Any idea what number they started on?

In any case, I'm pretty sure they haven't shipped (meaning released to a major shipper) mine— and so I'm doubtful they've shipped anyone elses.

(I'm going to take a totally WAG— pure speculation— that to resolve the costly shipping they put the units they shipped out on a cargo ship, and at some point they land at a port in the US and get handed off to a carrier)
That crazy idea had just crossed my mind just days before you mentioned it. LOL, I guess we thought of the same solution.

P.S. A 33 pound package via DHL express costs $421.

Odd how the hash rate ramped up tho. Last week, 8000 mh/s then what looks like an avalon coming on after it.
Before 8000 mh/s looks like just a few gpus... Then a lot of gpus... Then an avalon?

Dunno.

Whatever it is.. its finding 100 128-dif shares every 12-13 minutes. Shocked

update..

Now theres two. :p

Is anyone else thinking that no news is actually bad news?

Bitsyncom, could we have a brief update?

Well, besides the bbs.<some.China.site> pictures posted, a random Chinese guy emailed me, requesting the firmware image Yifu sent me.

So, it sounds like some units are arriving at their Chinese destinations, at least.

Updated firmware seems pretty happy.  No long-run data yet, as I've had to turn it off for reasons unrelated to mining (moving gear around etc.)

It costs ~$270/day to not have an Avalon mining.

Instead of putting them on a cargo ship, it would be most cost effective to mine with them a few days then ship as fast as possible via Air.  This would be a win-win for Avalon and their customers.

I'm almost convinced that some or most of the Avalons are in use.

The network is up about 8 Thash/s or approx 360 Avalons.

Either the rightful owners are keeping a tight lip or someone is cashing in before they get delivered.

8T is only 123 machines if each handles 65G

For purpose of testing, they should run them for a couple of days before shipping, that is normal

You're aware that ASICMINER has 3.7TH pointed at BTC Guild, right?

Yep ASICMINER is slowly coming online, and the recent price surge to over $30/BTC (!) has attracted a lot of miners that had previously shut off. Even GPUs are pretty profitable, but that could change for some at the next diff recalc. And the next one after that should be interesting, as well.
