#10: Josh? Has anyone seen him joshin' around lately on BFL or Bitcointalk forums? It's oh so quiet ...


(OK he's still alive: eryngi: "He did have time to erase my post. So he's there "keeping things civil" while hiding after missing another delivery date.".
EDIT: Josh also deleted eryngi's post.)

Hey, just out of curiosity, are there actually some people who still think they're going to deliver ?
Are they the same people still waiting for a pirate payout ?

#8 Having forgot what post, which timeline or even which dates they said BFL simply ships when they have something to ship and continue the why worry about "deadlines" approach well after April.

I don't see how they could drag this out another month without delivering something, a prototype to a reviewer at least.  Roll Eyes

Has BFL hired clergy?  BFLintology?

With how quiet it has been in this 'chip testing' phase I would prepare for some more bad news.  BFL is usually pretty prompt with providing mediocre information and really slow with passing on bad news.

I really wish I could find that statement made by Josh so long ago (June I think) about how they had learned so much about this industry from the FPGAs that the ASICs process would be so much smoother.

I wonder have they actually surpassed the FPGA delay mark yet? What was it 6 months? Tongue

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

I'm afraid this is likely true. They post something at least once a day when things are going smooth and get very quiet when things go wrong.

so... Why so much hate towards BFL from those who bought Avalon? I mean seriously. You should be happy and grateful for BFL not delivering in time. The longer they don't deliver, the more money for you. Instead of mocking BFL you should praise it. Just think if they didn't delay so much, you'd be getting waaaaay less today. Only people who should be depressed about BFL are those who bought their rigs. But they seem don't mind it, or they won't show it. No one wants to demonstrated they made a bad judgement. It is like horse race, you make your bet which horse will deliver first asic... Those who couldn't deside and bought both Avalon and BFL should also be happy. So come on, guys/gals, no need to rub it in to poor (and in some cases I mean it literally) BFL customers. Grin

I have a single on order which is why I'm watching. But I'm doing a trade in from my FPGA single and used a CC for the other half. Right now my best path is just to hope something comes out soon. I have no idea how I would feel if I bought a minirig with Bitcoin. That is a totally different story.

Praise Josh for his incompetence....wait...Josh didn't make the ASICs. Nasser did....or was it Chronicle Techs incompetence....Perhaps it was the Fab at fault...no...perhaps it was the bumpers....no wait....the packagers....or was it the broken tester?

I am confused...who should I praise for this <cough>miracle<cough>?

I am, in fact, impressed with BFL. It is a miracle they were able to get this far, given the obvious lack of competence at all levels, and a known scammer among them. Just look at what happened to another American ASIC project, bASIC.
It is not fair comparing these people with the kids from China (two teams to actually deliver ASICs thus far) - well educated, humble, and hard working.

They're there, in their room.

I can totally understand your feelings. As BFL customer this might turn into some potential profit loss... That would be depressing.

You are not BFL customer, are you? If you bought Avalon, well, then I don't get your personal hate towards BFL and Josh. if you bought mini rig and don't have it yet

, then I can totally see it.
I must admit BFL  exterior design look more pleasing to an eye. I'm not saying they are bad, nor saying they are good. I'm just saying that avalon customers have no reason to bash them, instead they should be grateful for the delay, because difficulty is less, they get more coins with avalons. That is all
