Bitcoinorama, thank you very much for these honest and thorough updates. Much appreciated! You've schooled BFL in the art of communication :-)

Hi Orama,

nice to hear from you and appreciate your trip report.

Nevertheless the fire-happenings i think you are making yourself a little to comfortable here.

There definetly IS an issue with hardware/software that has to be sorted out by KNC.

I haven't been in the loop.  Don't the latest firmwares fix everything?  Does the hashing just periodically stop?

The popped caps happend with 0.92 , 0.92 and 0.93 fw. So nothing is sorted out here.

Is that the highest order number we've seen with a status change yet, #222X?

I'm in the #26XX's...  Hopefully it changes status soon!

What a load of bollocks, packaging experts don't add anything other than this air. They add polystyrene balls, air filled polythene bags, shredded cardboard,  lots of shock absorbing products made specifically to stop contents being damaged.

To date, Orama has been an invaluable source of honest information for us all here and I am grateful for all hes taken the time to do which he didn't have to.
All change now though, can't criticise the company in your new job really can you? Cant expect that. Company spokesman has to be his role now.

Glad he's got the job and is loving it, and I hope it only gets better. Well deserved. Best of luck dude. Smiley

WTF happened to his rig? Seems to have been lost like tears in rain? lol

I am presently running 0.93 on my unit.
I notice that I am getting better performance if I can ventilate the air out of the case.
The primary reason I feel that this works is that the board components themselves are sitting in stagnant heat with the default CFM fans.
I will keep my first impressions post active with the results over the next few days.

So if the  order queue is so sacred,  Why did they give a miner away for free?  When there customers who paid months ago waiting for theirs?   Is there something i missed?

Certainly...that miner was promised out before a single unit was paid for as a sponsorship for the bitcoin couple...

it seems to remember then on knc forum or irc  someone (maybe asic-k, but I could be mistaken) offered his mercury to ckolivas for a few day. 

definitely a good idea and of course I'm too more than ready to donate.

i would donate 0.4 btc

ofcourse only if the job gets done innert lets say 2 weeks max. better would be 10 days but i have no clue how long those things usually need.

regarding Kano I don't know anything

but ckolivas is austrlian and a well known linux kernel developer:

Hello,

I just observed a "crash" of cgminer life but had been to slow to make a sreendump/capture.
I just wated to check how long cgminer had been running, opened a "screen -r" session. Uptime
had been >2h. My Saturn was hashing at about 270GH. I did not close the window but changed to
my webbrowser. Some minutes later I noticed the cgminer messages to scroll in that window at a
very high speed.
Not the usual
- Accepted ...
- KnC: core ... enabled/disabled
but something like "... only 0/1 shares" (sorry for not remembering the correct message)
at a rate of 10-20 per second.
Just as I wanted to make a capture, the screen session was terminated and some seconds later
a new cgminer started by some scripts.

Did anyone observe this as well?

All change now though, can't criticise the company in your new job really can you? Cant expect that. Company spokesman has to be his role now.

Glad he's got the job and is loving it, and I hope it only gets better. Well deserved. Best of luck dude. Smiley

WTF happened to his rig? Seems to have been lost like tears in rain? lol

Poly balls, and shredded cardboard would not mix too well with the open grills. I mentioned the air bags to Marcus as bodybuilding.com use them whenever I purchase supplements from them, but he stood by the fact it's better not to have anything resting upon the case that transfers pressure to the casing, thus the heatsinks via the foam padding on them as they are in direct ocntact with the casing, and then stress the board, which is crazy thick for a PCB board.

Bargraphics has a lot of experience in packaging and he agreed that this had been the best way to go. Can't speak for UPS, but they have been given all customs invoicing, and if they mistreat the goods, they will be replaced. DHL pulled out the big guns for delivering the chips hand packaged on a Sunday and saving the Beagle Bones, when the first shipment Fedex took holidaying to France, and then lied repeatedly about their whereabouts subsequent, and DHL want the contract apparently, so UPS are being closely observed.

And you are correct I have to behave with a little more diplomacy, also towards other companies I feel are less honest, but at the end of the day, with respect to my behaviour and actions, and that of KnC's, and their competitors.

You cannot argue honesty, and you cannot compete with lies. Sam has said this, and I totally agree. So let people make their own mistakes, just I really wish peeps would read more around the subject, the terms the agree to, and the payment choices they make instead of diving head first based on impulse and greed. I don't want people getting burned. No matter where my allegiance lies, I will endeavor to remain as blunt and honest as always, albeit with a little more tact and diplomacy.

As far as I see it if someone wants me on board they accept me for both my skills, and integrity, especially if they wish to capitalise from that. That said I think Sam, Andreas, and I are in alignment there, which is why I bothered to give them the time of day to support their venture going forward. They still had to prove to me as much as anyone else they were capable of delivering, but i'm smart enough to juggle my traits with their goals. With whatever field I have worked in I always have been. With finance greed, and temptation is always there, this is just one opportunity of many I have, and will have ahead of me. I've never strayed from who I am. That said I do intend to be compensated for my efforts going fourth. I'm well aware of my value and ability, but i'm also confident enough to know that I don't need to be corrupt to be successful. You make your own opportunities in life, and only those who don't believe in themselves, or are lazy, take the easy path.

I find it hard as to why this is so prevalent with Bitcoin. It's a burgeoning industry, moving at lightspeed, anyone prepared to be acknowledged for delivering on promises and integrity has it all to play for. Anyone dishonest has a short shelf-life, they will be their own undoing, and clearly do not value the crypto-currency movement. This is still the ground floor. To try to get rich quick and burn others is moronic in comparison to where you could be further down the line with a reputation for integrity, and a strong work ethic.

Thanks for the kind words bro, i'm not about to let anyone down. Keep everything chilled and constructive, and i'll do my best to ensure it's win/win for all. Wink

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

Hey BitcoinORama, can you ask KnC to not mount the fans?  Is that something we could do on our own?

It might help them build faster and less damages during shipping.

So I'm worried about my KNC Jupiter that is arriving today blowing up while I'm not there. Has there been any consensus on how best to limit the risk? Which firmware version is best?

Cheers!

asaik the consensus is at the moment:

a.) dont use fw 0.90 as it may be damaging the boards
b.) dont use fw 0.92 as both fires occured while using 0.92

in terms of lid open or closed the jury is still out

Granted, GPUs are not ASICs, but from ALOT of testing that I did with GPUs an heat being heat no matter what, there is nothing like lid/case open. No matter how many fans, or extra HIGHER CFM fans, or how cold you keep a room, nothing compared to an open box.....some mentioned airflow and box/case open would mess up the flow of air but I say take the lid off unless you have a high probably of something landing inside the box like a flying cat or kids tossing stuff near your KNC rig
