I admit that I'm trolling, and that I don't have a big understanding of the iusses.
However, BFL claimed to have their chips ready almost one month ago. Again, I'm not a expert, but what I know is this:
-they have yet to show a prototype
-they have a large outflux of money due to the refunds.
-they are trying to get new orders using a lot of money on AdWords (probably in the range of 100'000$/month), this should guarantee them a positive money flow, for now.
-if the design of this chip is flawed, they will have a hard time to find the money for another 45nm run. If I'm correct these costs as much as 1 million dollar each.
-if they don't show a working prototype in, I guess, one month, their design is flawed.

If this happens, everyone with a preorder will lose his money.

Good luck, BFL fanboys!

My anger against what is wrong in the Bitcoin community is productive:

Watch out! nbtcminer is hot on your trail:

Scammer  how?

TL:DR,

He's trying to get people to cancel their orders so he can move up in the order book / cost BFL money for not delivering on time.

Of course they haven't. The blockchain fork happened when BFL tried their fucked up chips on the live network.

Good question.

One might think they could have setup at least their infrastructure in the last couple months.

But their order tracking system is also fucked up still has room for improvement Wink

I just visualize the face of someone that has ordered a Mini Rig, opens the box - and there's a Jalapeno.

Guys, guys, you're over-reacting; by mid next week they might have an entire functioning testing rig for the chips! I even heard their assembly benches have nearly been delivered. Amazing.

Awww, Frizzy is starting to crack.  Shocked

That whole BFL hate thing was just a facade.  You're secretly in love with Inaba aren't you!
