just awesome...thanks for the pics.
so...it would be wider, right?

don't want to spoil the mood, but , apparently, studies have shown that working more than 55-56hr/week is as productive as working 70 hr, which probably means that one just gets exhausted and not accomplish much in the 56-70hr area.
https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/on-leadership/wp/2015/08/24/working-more-than-55-hours-a-week-is-bad-for-you-in-many-ways
Note to myself (in grad school and during postdoc years): I surely wasted a lot of those 56-70hr periods then, would be better off doing more reading.

So your saying you should be able to pull 55hrs without a decrease in production huh?.....

Keep up the good work. Bitmain needs to be taken down a peg!

I'll probably talk to some of the same reviewers I talked to for the Compacs last year - people I trust whose opinions cover important aspects of a successful product. Phil is really good at understanding customer mindsets, guys like NotFuzzyWarm are well-rounded engineers, and CrazyGuy as a top reseller can comment on marketability.

Still available to manage Canada group buy if need be!  Wink

YES add me to a list, if I miss his first sales MESSAGE me I'm down for a bunch!!!!

Yes. No.

Completely off topic but I was in my attic and found a huge stash of caps.

I have zero need as my eyes can't see well enough to solder well.

I can mail a large flat rate box as I know some of the caps have to fit your needs.

Pm me your address I will mail them on Monday .

There are thousands of caps in the 5 gallon bucket .

Well, the numbers in your group buy look to be for the 16nm stuff still in early development.

The latest discussion on the thread is Bitmain Leftovers stuff being put together in the short term to help raise money for the 16nm projects. All the numbers are in the last few pages.

I'm assuming at least a thousand of the 2pacs, possibly more like 1500. Pods, not so sure- 250 to 500.

I was asked how many pods and sticks I intended to produce, so I answered that question. Nothing to do with your power supply. Next time I'll remember to quote the post so folks don't get confused by things outside the immediate context.

I know I was only joking seeing as your post was shortly after mine.  My apologies I'll refrain from digressing in the future.

Anyways, on to the news.

I just did some testing of vh's latest ramp code on a hardware mockup of the 2-chip BM1384 stick and it looks to be working. That's the second of two required software milestones before I was completely comfortable with the project.

So now we have tested and approved functionality of both the hardware and the software. I'm waiting for prototype PCBs of the actual stick form-factor to make sure that specific layout works as expected before sending off for a large batch, but the circuit itself (as well as the code to operate it) has been proven. Technically this is a preorder, but as stated - both the software and the hardware are proven. I wouldn't be saying anything otherwise.

So with that in mind, I'm going to go ahead and open up sales on the 2PAC 2-chip BM1384 stick miner. Total batch limit of 1500 sticks; once this is reached there will be no more. Sticks will be $30 apiece. I can't give a specific estimate for initial shipping because it'll depend on if the PCB layout works as expected or if I have to fix any problems. All I can say is, I hope to start moving them by the end of January.

Donations can still be sent to the 1BURGER address (1BURGERAXHH6Yi6LRybRJK7ybEm5m5HwTr) and I'm adding a sales address to the lineup: 12PACBUYyFhRyhRB4qB9Z5Z8M6E3p8gpmt. I'm still vanity-genning a snazzy loan address, so that's pending.

I'll put up a thread in Group Buys today or tomorrow with all this info consolidated, including estimated specs of the stick.

So should we start sending funds there now? Or wait until you have the Group Buy thread up?
