Bitcoinorama, I don't have a dog in the ring, but I am in your corner.  Please, review the posts here about hosting, and, if representations were in fact made concerning timely uptimes, beseech KnC to make good on those representations.

Just about everything has been done in a way that has made their performance the anti-BFL, anti-Avalon provider; the good will being generated is assuredly huge and valuable to them.  Time and resources are undoubtedly scarce, but please don't let that reservoir of good will be drained by things that slip through the cracks which could be avoided with a little care.

Just sayin' ...

Loredo I understand, but I know you realise this was not atypical engineering, they've achieved in 24 hours what others couldn't in a year. Then have given a superhuman effort to ensure you get yours. Customers are prioritised over everything, especially sleep. So if cracks are appearing it's because they need a little rest, and have been fully hands on. Resources aren't scarce per se, but now the product is here, other hands need to pick up what's required and fast.

In any case, Sam is on his way to the datacentre now, alas I'm not, as the van he took had space for two, and he prioritised the software engineers, now some of you may argue that was a logical choice, but at least I've now had a shower. Wink

Seriously though if it's not online tonight, check tomo morn. They've all had very little sleep since Sun, but hosting is their (Sam, Andreas and the software engineers) priority now. Rem. they only got the boards to where they wanted by this morn, so tomo really is the first full day of ramped up production. What we did today was the lot of us racing against each other to get as many out the door and prep the facility staff so they are upto speed. So today wasn't the full quota, but we did the best we could. Also UPS had all waybills, all, they were double checked I even have a photo of Sam doing just that. That needs to be addressed to customer services though, I cannot help you there.

I'll be with Marcus and Michael again, who are getting their first decent night rest now, in the manufacturing facility tomo. Tomo night I'm 100% back to Stockholm.

This is great news.  Thank you for the update.

PLEASE GIVE ME MY UNIT.
Do you honestly think the KNCminer staff have time to sit down and read forum like this atm? No, they are building and shipping units.  I don't understand why people post questions or instructions for KNCMiner here when there is little chance they will be read.

It's cool dudes, much as it was your own choice to take a leap of faith, I feel partly responsible for talking these guys up, but I know a good thing when I see it, and a lot of you kept your heads and backed me up, so I want to see you hashing, and fwiw before me, as well.

Make my day! Say thanks if you found me helpful Smiley BTC Address --->

Thanks for the update o'rama - appreciated....  I don't think any one here except ur0pl is panicking, I'm just curious more than anything else and hoping for the winds of fate (and that hot looking UPS girl from the Bitfury thread) to deliver me some day-1 miners before the weekend....

I'd agree with that sentiment.  I think I scared the people that were in the lanes next to me as I cheered wildly all the way home from work.  The level of professionalism throughout the entire experience has been fantastic.  I am interested to hear what people are hashing at when these puppies get online.  Long Live KNC.

what the f... happen with bitcoin rate???

Silk Road was busted, Dread Pirate Roberts is a killer and people is crapping their pants.

True story: http://krebsonsecurity.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/UlbrichtCriminalComplaint.pdf
Thank you for this link!

What a hell of a story.  Incredible detail, murder for hire, network architecture.  Fascinating stuff.  And, ironically, while Dread Pirate Roberts was living in San Franscisco, he went by the name "Josh."  Sometimes reality gives you stuff you could never ever think to make up.

He's certain to be looking at Maximum Security Life Without Parole on multiple counts.  Unless he starts to sing, loud and long...

meeh, I hope that all 1st day orders will be shipped tomorrow, because if not, we will not get them before weekend and I don't think that UPS delivering during weekend.(

The UPS express option allows for deliveries on saturdays I think.

LOL.  Same here...

Twinkies, Pizza, endless cups of coffee.  Looking up at the clock and realizing it's now 4:00 AM, and that you you sat down at 5:30 to make "just one last little change" before going home for the night and ended up re-writing two shared libraries that were causing problems because the code wasn't reentrant....

I worked ~4 years in datacenter. I know, that it seems somehow sexy and exciting: racks, cables, cisco equipment, everything is blinking, fan noise, geek porn.. but after couple of years of stress, night shifts, noise and cold inside...well, is better in the office.)

What a couple of days.

Silk Road is busted, and BTC, after the knee-jerk that always attends any speculative prices on surprise announcements, takes 80% it back and volatility returns almost to normal.

KnC goes a long way to removing "bitcoin ASIC vendor" from the lexicon of synonyms for "con men."

Now if BFL actually ships their chips on or around their promised 100-day points, there might just be some order, good will, and community attitude return to this feckin' business.

Avalon... well, my attitude is, "that was ugly and tragic, but they won't exist going forward, so why should I care?"

Time to do a little real world work.

BFL actually shipped my chips on the 99th day after I paid for them and I received them on day 100.
Unfortunately there are no boards quite ready for commercial production yet although Lucko, Jeremiah Johnson and MrTeal are just about there.

Yes, I know that.  I believe it was 32 chips, right?

What I keep watching for are the Group Buys.  I think there was already at least one missed assurance of shipping last Friday.

EDIT: This doesn't belong here in any case.  I am honestly rooting for BFL to ship.

My guess is, your need for a shower was the underlying reason  Cheesy
