Josh will have an update on why he's not posting either late today or tomorrow, probably today but that's subject to change and possibly the later half of tomorrow, which is also subject to change and could extend into late next year. I promise to give you another update in one minute.

BFL_Josh: Your appointment with Luke-jr should be finalized within the week. I've already discussed the matter with Judy.
Sonny: I take it he was agreeable?
BFL_Josh: He didn't really have a choice.
Sonny:  Has he pre-ordered?
BFL_Josh: Oh yes. Most certainly. When I mentioned we could put him on the priority list for the MiniRig, he was so willing it was almost pathetic.
Sonny:  This delay... the rioting is intensifying to the point where we may not be able to contain it.
BFL_Josh: Why contain it? Let it spill over the dorms and trailers, let the bodies pile up in the basements. In the end they'll beg us to save them.
Sonny:  I've received reports of armed attacks on shipments. There's not enough ASICs to go around, and the underclasses are starting to get desperate.
BFL_Josh: Of course they're desperate; they can smell their insolvency, and the sound they'll make rattling their cages will serve as a warning to the rest.
Sonny:  Mmm. I hope you're not underestimating the problem. Intelligence suggest they're behind the problems in bumping.
BFL_Josh: Bunch of pretentious young kids playing at running the world. But the world left them behind long ago. We are the future.
Sonny:  We have other problems.
BFL_Josh: Avalon?
Sonny:  Formed by 2 dudes in China after the strike on bAsic. I have someone in place though. I'm more concerned about friedcat. He's relocated to BTCGuild.
BFL_Josh: Our FanBox is far in advance of theirs, as is our electronic sentience, and their 'ethical inflexibility' has allowed us to make progress in areas they refuse to consider.
Sonny:  The augmentation project?
BFL_Josh: Among others. But, I must admit, I've been somewhat disappointed with the performance of the primary unit.
Sonny:  The secondary unit should be online soon. It's currently undergoing preparations and should be operational within 4-6 weeks. If necessary, the primary will be terminated.
BFL_Josh: We've had to endure much, you and I, but soon there will be order again. A new age. Satoshi spoke of the mythical city on the hill, soon that city will be real and we will be crowned its kings. Or, better than kings... Gods!

avalon customers have no reason to bash them
More panic, then more chance, that they will fail, when the wave of refunds will come. Avalon customers will be more happy Smiley

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.

I'd like to think I'm not the only miner who is concerned about the security of the blockchain. BFL has tied up millions of dollars for many months that could have been better spent securing the network. Their fake ship dates were also anti-competitive and more than one other project didn't move forward due to BFL's lies. Fortunately Avalon ignored BFL's lies and went ahead with their project.

post of the week

This is not some pseudoeconomic post-modern Libertarian cult, it's an un-led, crowd-sourced mega startup organized around mutual self-interest where problems, whether of the theoretical or purely practical variety, are treated as temporary and, ultimately, solvable.
Censorship of e-gold was easy. Censorship of Bitcoin will be… entertaining.

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

Taxin' my memory, I believe it was the ASIC press release.

With that, I'm going to bed.

Nite, Vite!

The only reason they will not ship is because they are not capable of making the machine.  Someone told me that they are busy changing the website to sell 100MPG carburetors to all the people who do not realize this is not possible to achieve (and do not realize their car does not have a carb) and that as a token of good will all BFL customers will get a coupon code for 20% off.

What kind of gift bag did Nick Jr. get after his visit?

#6 After an extensive research cycle, they discovered that the 6th week of April is really the 2nd week in May.

#5 After the FinCEN declarations, they had to wait for a Money Transmitter license to test the transfer of their testnet coins

#4 The online order tracking system accidentally changed all of the order dates to "blue"

#3 The units didn't work after they cut each of them into thirds to be able to implement the 1/3rd plan

#2 The digital design company theyused for their ASICs are litecoin moles.

and the number one reason BFL will postpone and April 2013 shipping date:

The units from PrimeASIC they were going to repackage haven't arrived yet.
