hiya, it says in the pre-order page "US department of commerce export control restrictions prohibit the sale of these devices to AT designated countries"

May i ask what an AT country is?? is united kingdom one? is this included in international express delivery?

BFL claims they start shipping in October.
Like this page says they really promise.

Though my question is, wich items you are gonna ship first?
Are you guys first gonna ship the Jalapenos and maybe a couple of SC Mini rigs?
For example: as far we can guess it's maybe gonna takes another 4 months after October before you ship the Single SC units, though the shipping started in October alright like promised.
Can BFL give us maybe a little bit clarification on that area?

Thanks.
They said somewhere (no idea where, search the forum?) that they'll ship them all at the same time.

Here's the policy clarification again:

http://www.butterflylabs.com/products/

The initial orders will be grouped into a batch prior to shipment.  This will ensure no one is an unfair beneficiary of disproportionate hashing power.  Having said this, we only have so much production capacity and the initial order group will still do very very well.  That being the case, here are the rules we will stick to in releasing these units.

1/3rd of the units will go in order priority of purchase date.
1/3rd of the units will go to trade in customers.
1/3rd of the units will go to random orders placed in the first month (6/23 - 7/23).

Both priority customers and trade in customers may benefit from random selection prior to their natural shipping order.


Refunds and charge backs:  All sales are final unless we fail to perform.  That includes both performance and shipping targets.  60 days past target and we'll happily refund your purchase.  If you would really like a refund anyway, just ask and we'll probably be able to take care of you.  Nonetheless, we reserve the right to handle it on a case by case basis.

Would you like to go on record for the target date? Delivery in October leaves you much wiggle room and we do not know when to start counting in case of failure to comply. Thanks.

Tired of substandard power distribution in your ASIC setup???   Chris' Custom Cablez will get you sorted out right!  No job too hard so PM me for a quote

AT designated nations are N. Korea, Cuba etc.  You can find the latest list as updated by the US commerce department on their website.

Thank you for answering.
I am sure the community also would like to know the following:

1) What temprature can the ASICs handle?
2) When can we expect any graphical details?

I hope BFL can answer these questions.

I hope BFL can answer these questions.

The range of temperature tolerance of the SC chip is extremely wide which is the nature of a dedicated ASIC as compared to a design sensitive FPGA implementation.  The final temperature depends on the thermal handling characteristics of a heatsink/fan implementation.  Overclocking (which is viable with the SC) will change these dynamics considerably.  I think the most useful answer to your question is that the end temperature in our application as designed is around 37C, but the chips support performance stability well beyond 80C.

We will release development photos as we closer approach release.

Does your company even posses a MO UCC registration under which to uphold any such statments of policy?

Not wasting any more time on this but 2 things;
1. "That includes both performance and shipping targets" So you now wish to add in an "as-is" clause after the bulk of your sales? sadly it does nto work that way.

2. Any individual sales over $5,000 will require a writtin contract to enforce any of your policies.

If you're not excited by the idea of being an early adopter 'now', then you should come back in three or four years and either tell us "Told you it'd never work!" or join what should, by then, be a much more stable and easier-to-use system. - GA

This is also what I miss and emailed BFL about.
We all would like to know where we can find an official Terms and Conditions & disclaimer on the website of BFL wich confirms all the official statements BFL makes on the Bitcointalk.org forums.

Oh, I hope it's like old school overclocking where you have to replace the crystal.

I've placed a large order to be paid by bank wire several days ago.  Email sent by BFL states that I will be contacted with bank wire information within 1 business day.
That was 4 days ago.  Has anyone else attempted to place an order with bank wire?

They stated that they were delaying bank wire acceptance slightly to allow BTC payments first dibs.(how true that is god only knows).
They did also state however that your order will not be delayed by the time that they delay in getting you the bankwire info. Your only delay will be how long it takes your wire money to reach them once you receive the info. So, if you ordered on the 25th and your bankwire once you get the info takes 2 days, then your official order queue will be the 27th.

Yes - they never did accept my contact request, and I submitted it months ago.

They have said that they are going to be manufacturing a large batch and send those out at once to prevent one person from getting an advantage. Honestly, I hope the just produce as many as they can and start the first shipments on October 31st to make that first batch as big as possible.

That's my hope, but I still think the delivery will slip to December.

6 months sounds a lot better than 12 months though. The only question is, will the world live long enough to see the end of bitcoin?  Roll Eyes

Maybe this is what leads to the end of the world? Maybe with all those hashes the bitcoin network becomes self aware and destroys the world?
