Just a little bit of info regarding KnC
They contact ckolivas and myself at the end of May regarding cgminer and related information.

They then stated they'd be sending (in July) mock up devices (with an internal RPi) for us to work with on cgminer, then in September the real (faster) devices to tune cgminer to.

I have, however, heard nothing since, but no doubt expect to hear something soon.

I'll keep everyone posted if anything happens Smiley
I've been waiting 5 days for a reply (to an email I sent Marcus and Sam) from KnC about their status ... still no response ...

Could it be that they do not want to answer you, until they have a exactade shipping date. To not lie.
But next Tuesday not have answer would be a bit worrying.

I do not want you to think I'm a Fanboy. I acknowledge the work done by ckolivas and you.
Could be.
But I really just asked for a status update coz we hadn't heard from them since the end of May.
They were also the ones who contacted us originally, not the other way around.

keep on them.

it would be great to have cgminer as a part of knc.

I think they better include a user manual stating risks and proper use of product
just to be on the safe side.

I asked them about user documentation just a little while ago.  They have indicated it will be available later this summer.

Keep in mind that you will supply the PSU - this is the most likely part to cause issues.  If you put a cheap one in your rig and it fries the rest of your hardware or causes a short - then don't blame KnC, you caused the problem yourself.

Some useful info on hosting I received from email inquiry,

Hello Sam,

Just a quick couple questions for the recent hosting announcements, if we've previously selected shipping with our order can we change that to hosting?

Also do you expect hosting to be operational at the same time of the original shipments in September?


Hi,

There will be an option to use the shipping payment towards hosting fees when we start taking payments for hosting closer to the shipment start.

Orders that are expected to be shipped a certain week will also be ready for hosting that week.

 
Thanks

Nice information to have. Let's hope these ship in September. The sooner, the better, for those of us that have preorders in Wink

...
one question
if u choose hosting u don't pay shipping, electricity and VAT 
(u will pay VAT when u decide to import hw in ur country, right?)
If the goods are not exported, local VAT apply.
Quote
You can zero-rate the sale, provided you get and keep evidence of the export, and comply with all other laws. You must also make sure the goods are exported, and you must get the evidence, within three months from the time of sale

It seems KnC is indeed rather hectic at the moment, as one would expect, but still within their recent time frame update.

They have published at least two status updates since May, so I don't know what you are going on about there.

It might just be coincidence that a response comes when the discussion of a critical path software issue resurfaces on this forum.

Then again, they might just be the Anti-BFL.  By that I mean:

BFL: Instead of professionally addressing the issue of why they continue to stiff their chip purchasers and potential board developers, one of their "executives" comes on and engages in a profanity match with members of the community.

KNC: A software developer mentions, politely, that he has not heard from KnC in the timeframe they indicated earlier, and then he does.

Debates on how many angels or defects can dance on the head of a KnC die notwithstanding, they sure seem to me like a much more businesslike organization than anyone else in the ring.

Let's face it, until KNC provides some die shots followed in relative short fashion by a hashing video there will be a lot of teeth gnashing and second guessing regarding their design choices...

This.

I can't believe that people invested their money in KNC and expect an optimistic delivery date without seeing some more transparency ( fab documention/order dates etc.). Yes it's important to have an ASIC if you want to currently mine, but I feel too many people are throwing their cash around.

I would love to order a KNCminer, but I am waiting until I see working proof from end users who have received their units, just like I did with BFL.  Until actual real world test results come in, you can't plan your rig effectively.

this would be the most cautious option, unfortunately we have no time for a 100% safe choice

i'm struggling with doubts since the beginning of june (that prevented me to place an order in the best timespot)
