I'll buy and sell grocery from my local foodstore for your BTC. (10 to 20% markup though). Wink

BTW. http://launch.avalon-asics.com/ was updated. They seem to indeed be offering a 4th board as an upgrade option, meaning the thing right now likely pulls way less than 400W.

heh - now there's an idea.. instead of a salary.. you get a box that generates your salary Smiley

Salary? What would you buy for Bitcoins? Webspace and Torrent invites won't feed you kids and they don't sell celery for your BTC salary.

heh.. I know - wouldn't it be great if you could, you know - exchange coin for cash - or like.. buy other services you might need with it..

I AM curious to see power figures though...!

Why?  I mean, if you (or anyone) gets any BFL stuff sometime before the earth stops cooling, it'll be to late.

Somewhat, as I understand things, and I think this is the scientific consensus.  The loss rate is not quite made up for by solar flux, radioactive decay, and the like.

Note that this has nothing to do with atmospheric warming or what people commonly refer to as 'global warming.'  Nor does it have anything to do with Avalon for that matter.  It's just been an amusing expression (to some) since about the time that Lord Kelvin was kicking.

Sure it is. The atmosphere may not atm due to human initiated climate changes, but the earth itself is cooling. You know, from former fireball to a crust we call land and so on. Now the real question is what will happen first. Will the earth's core cool down completely leaving a lifeless cold husk floating through space or will the sun go giant first burning the inner planets to ashes? My money is on the former.

With anywhere from 58 petawatts to 180 petawatts of sunshine, I'd say it is a sunny day everyday, for the next 5 billion years.

Then a red giant will turn earth crispy.

The latter.

Sounds like a good topic for one of those Bitcoin bets sites.  Probably easier to verify than most of the retarded bets I've seen attempted.

Jesus it's hard to stay on topic.  Go Avalon.  That better?  Maybe if Avalon ASICs are so much more efficient that GPU or ASIC it will tip the balance in terms of global energy conversion and set a course for the destiny of planet earth?

At last, so at least the goddamn conspiracy noise will drop to only the most paranoid who don't believe any amount of evidence.

Perhaps I can still buy a 1st run box from a disbeliever...

I try to be respectful and informed.

Speaking of which, surely someone's collecting on a bet related to Avalon's delivery of ASICs right now.

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

While the first customers might get ASIC its doubtful later customers will make any profit from them. It will be a race to the bottom imho
