FROM GOOGLE TRANSLATOR:
We will present you a genuine Shanghai Machine
In the end of September, we will present you in Shanghai genuine machine, then you will be able to experience the performance of the mining machine.

So ... Will KNC send the miners from China to the costumers ? Or will they be sent from Sweden ?

I think it's pretty obvious from the coindesk article, if everything goes to plan, shipping will be last week in September through first two weeks of October.

This ties in perfectly with this statement that they will demonstrate the machine in China at the end of Sept.

And they will ship from Sweden, as this is how the tax etc has been handled.

Cole said. “Everything is still on track for me to have Jupiters in customers’ hands in September.” He expects to fill most of his customers’ orders in early October, and says that he should have cleared the current queue of orders by mid October.
KNC are a funny bunch. They won't tell their customers - who have spent millions of dollars - when they expect to deliver. But they will tell some crappy news website Grin
Careful now, everyone's going to jump on you for saying something like that...

They've always said September, and the preorder delivery estimates always indicated late September, so I'm not sure what you mean other than you didn't pay attention..?

They have never stated they would clear all orders in 3 weeks before - EVER. And as I said above, Sam's now made it pretty clear in the article that it will be the last week in September through first two weeks of October, which was never stated before either. So stop being a smug know-it-all dick.

P.S. you = ignored. Trolls - keep voluteering for my ignore list  Cool

You didn't quote the 3 weeks statement, and they haven't started November pricing yet, so how could you think any different?
P.S.  I wasn't trying to be a "Di**", just stating what's obviously been overlooked by you, but thanks for revealing your true nature, before I spent too much energy explaining previously revealed information to an obvious pessimist.

I plan on mining with my Jupiter for a few weeks and then selling it for more than I paid for it. We'll see how that works out, but I can still mine with it while trying to sell, win win.

With the quickly-rising difficulty, I don't know that people will be willing to pay even purchase price... especially with manufacturers dropping price as time marches on.

Have you SEEN what erupters are STILL going for on eBay?

i will make also a company
i will take your money with pre-order
and then i will go for holidays to vegas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

come on guys
does any good lawyer here at forum
to stop all these companies
THEY HAD TAKE OUR MONEYS

Actually in MULTIPLE posts on this thread from people who contact KnC have stated it would be late september.

Stop being a complete moron and maybe people would give you some credit.
I ignored your trolling comment earlier. But...

now...

you = ignored too Grin

I can see it will be a lot easier to follow this thread with all you argumentative keyboard jockey's out of the way.

Yeah, the truth is hard for some people; but the good news is God still loves you, even if we don't.
Question:  How are you "following" the thread, and coming up with such an off-base analogy? Looks more like you want to spread disinformation to me, and ignore the dozens of posts where it clearly indicates otherwise.
Saying "I can see it will be a lot easier to follow this thread with all you argumentative keyboard jockey's out of the way." Is a clear admission you're NOT following the thread, at all. (Especially after being told twice by two separate full members)

I doubt he even has an order...Why would someone cancel out being so close to delivery? Not a single delay...With such fabulous confirmation? Seems downright suspicious to me. Maybe he just needs the money, ... or a bit tight on cash at home maybe.

KNC are a funny bunch. They won't tell their customers - who have spent millions of dollars - when they expect to deliver. But they will tell some crappy news website Grin

In American industry there are companies that produce products for industry and companies that produce products for the consumer.  The two types of companies are different animals entirely.  Likely similar in Sweden.

Miner protection offered by KnC would be a huge plus.

A New Yorker relocated to rural Georgia, I sometimes get surprised at the lengths gone to make money down here.  Cable was new and the local company went out to all the rural homes and ran cable no charge.  Very sloppy but done.  They put in fiber early on which was great.  They wanted no personal routers and to be called in for home networking but of course that didn't fly.  No telling if that was official or just cable guys wanting more work.  Every telephone pole has a ground wire from the inter pole steel cables.  The something like #10 gauge uninsulated copper ran down the pole and grounded the support cable in conjunction with the steel cables to a ground support.  The cable company also used these grounds, clamping in grounds from from their junction boxes strung on the lines.  Those junction boxes hanging in the air under their own support steel cables have #10 copper clamped from one side of the junction box to the other over the junctions providing a lower resistance conductor than the steel cable as just a little better safeguard from lightening surges.  Now every telephone pole has, or had, one of these grounds.  On my property, the home is ~535 feet from the front property line and there are two telephone poles within my fence and one on the road outside my fence.  I get my cable from an office in a town 17 miles south.  When there's a problem they farm out the troubleshooting to a private electric company in Alabama.  The cable company's own trucks do major work however.  Mowing my lawn along the road this year my mower got caught in some #10 wire, uninsulated, lying in the grass a few feet from the roadside telephone pole.  It had been cut from the pole about a foot from the ground to about 5 feet from the ground, a 4 foot gap.  I immediately suspected an antisocial neighbor but then I noticed other poles on the road also had the ground cut in the same manner.  Jogging 5k south and back I noticed the telephone poles there also had the grounds cut.  I wrote to the cable company and the power company.  The cable company sent somebody from Alabama who called his boss then handed me the phone whence I was told they weren't going to replace the cut ground.  They said that the other poles on my property all had grounds.  What this does, removing the grounds on telephone poles along the road, is to reduce the number of paths to ground for the energy of a lightening strike increasing the damage radius.  This was either done officially by the power or cable company, like arguing the grounds increased the likelihood of a lightening strike (but removing the ground wires increasing their repair calls thus giving them statistics for higher rates) or by the workers of the private Alabama company that services the area so they'd have increased service calls and make more money.  Particularly, the unpopulated areas without power transformers for non-existant homes or cable, why remove the grounds there except to have a higher probability of lightening energy out there traveling to populated areas causing damage.  So, yes, some kind of insurance policy by KnCMiner would be nice.

I remember years ago a tow truck company got nailed for pouring oil on a something like a bridge entrance ramp so as to drum up business.

So today I'm thinking about the possibility of my Mercury getting fried from lightening.  I recall a Presario that was destroyed by lightening.  The RJ-45 was molten copper at the motherboard.  The power in jack was blackened.  The power brick was dead.  Here in the US a home will usually have two phases of 120VAC relative to neutral and neutral is tied to ground in the service and then ground to a ground-rod driven into the ground properly at the service and the service has only those two phases coming in from the electric utility.  Perhaps the power company asked the cable company to pay a fee for connecting to their ground, was refused and got cut.  So, the jolt of lightening came in via the cable, thru the cable modem to the RJ-45 ethernet connection, out the power-in jack thru the power brick trying to get to neutral in the 120VAC outlet which is tied to ground in the service.  If the computer was using Wifi it wouldn't have fried. They should call it WhyFry.  So, I was thinking about my Mercury.  Since it has an operating system I'd need do something like take a laptop and configure its RJ-45 as the downlink of a router and the laptop's wifi as the uplink.  My very first router was an older system with multiple ethernet cards running either Slink or Potato.  That I recall was not for me an easy thing to do.  I wonder if it's any easier with Wheezy.  I'd probably take a communication penalty in metrics.

an excellent reason to use wifi indeed, would stop a cablemodem, or dsl modem spike in its tracks.... but if I'm not mistaken, most wifi routers are already pre-configured as you say, with up-link on the RJ-45 side & down-link on the wi-fi side... or am I missing something?

The problem here at forum is that some people fight with other people and not fight with the factories which had take our moneys
Nobody can roi with knc miners
If these miners deliveried at end of September the good scenario
