Yeah, cause there's just so much real world applications for double SHA256, the  possibilities are endless! You might as well go and buy a few tulip buds.

Just like the internet in 1995....you can't see what hasn't been yet created (the amount of available ASICS processing power is very high and could potentially be monetized other than just mining coins)....Plus FWIW there are shitons of people who make a viable living doing stuff that we would scoff at - janitorial businesses, fast food propritors, ditch diggers, and yes, tulip growers. 

When I first saw KnC they were saying a couple of things that I got mixed up for a short time, they were talking about a litecoin rig and modular miners...and for a short time I had a picture of a dual miner, one module mining each ..the litecoins paying the power bill while the other mined BTC.

You're right about people finding a way to use all this kit I think, necessity is the mother of invention.

Back in 1995 Internet exploder was by far the top browser, Chrome didn't exist....no-one would have believed what we have now. Maybe well all end up looking back and wishing we'd been mining another currency that follows the same path as BTC has.


Loieeesssssssss it was netscape navigator - you aged yourself...youngin

Arachne browser.  I offered a canned ham but times they were already changin'.

I am surprised KNCminer haven't shown us a working prototype by now. It's almost the end of September and they would need a few days to assemble all the units promised for day 1 shipments.




no chips in hand = no final prototypes.  However that may not be the same answer within the next 2-4 days. (fingers crossed)

Indeed it would be nice to get some details. I honor the way KNC is handling things so far but there news policy could need some optimizing.

It needs just a minute from a secretary and everyone would be pleased.

Have the chips arrived?

If not, when are they supposed to arrive and wasnt they meant to arrive earlier this week?

I have no problems with delays, cause i see them doing everything they can to supply those miners as early as possible, so thats OK with me.

But i would like to stay informed daily in this very critical phase that we are right now. Like i said, one minute work for some office worker and we all know whats going on.

Its a matter of ONE minute to write a twitter or forum message "The chips arrive friday, saturday or whatever"...

... but I am totally concerned about my 1.5 coin which i stand to lose from bitbet if they fail on the whole overdeliver "on time".

Don't you worry about your 1.5BTC good Sir, for two reasons:
1) They are going too a good hands (mine, i have to admit, among the others)
2) Your 1.5BTC is the least of your worries since any "in two weeks™" delay slashes your ROI for sizable percentage. As a matter of fact 2016 blocks between 30+% difficulty rise tend to come in 10 instead of 14 days lately, so "two weeks" come quicker than imagined.

That's what I mean, I am surprised that they don't have the chips in hand already, with so few days of September left.

And have it turn out to be a lie?

If it is just their guess, then they already told you: everything is on track.

If it is to be the day they actually do arrive, then until that day arrives they don't know.

No wonder Josh makes shit up, assholes like you insist on some wild ass guess then bring blame when suppliers / shippers / etc make the guess inaccurate? Jerk.

They made it clear that the stuff is as far as they knew all going to arrive in time.

So until they know otherwise harrassing them is just a waste of space and time.

If something ends up running late enough to derail their plans maybe they will tell us so once it happens.

In the meantime we already have been informed what is going on: everything was on track last we heard.

Well TerraHash is officially out of the business, so that's one less competition to add to the difficulty.

on a serious note, do we have anymore details on that teaser video? 


The teaser video does contain a mysterious detail.

It could be trivial. (<<<--- just a small change in routing)

It could be non-trivial.

Plenty for both camps to speculate on. (Why???)


YMMV

Soon!

I bet the guys at KNC know exactly whats going on. And the chips are probably just fine. Why not sit back and laugh for a minute at all the people freaking out since they have been busting ass to make things happen and are preparing units to ship. KNC probably has their own bets on who's head is going to explode first waiting for their miner. Companies like ORSoC don't sit around wondering what is happening with their products. Just because Josh Zerlin fed people bullshit for almost a year and still has suckers believing in him doesn't mean everyone will.  Wait 3 days.. then bitch.  Everyone in the world knows 1.) who they are *and* 2.) where they are located. Can anyone name 1 thing they have been dishonest about? That's what I thought.  STFU  and wait.

It's funny how in the world of ASIC pre-orders "will ship in XX month" == "will ship on the very last day of XX month at best"

The first browser was Mosaic I think :p. Then Netscape, then Infernal Exploder and then FailFox. Safari was still in Steve's ovary. (wow that rhymed!)

I remember I downloaded the Mosaic source code using ftp from CERN then compiled it on my SUN workstation. That was at least long before Netscape or any other browser existed.
