Interesting transcript with Dave from BFL I found on that reddit link.

It confirms BFL doesn't have a set shipping date yet, and they are full of shit when it comes to shipping "next week".

http://pastebin.com/HpxTwUNW

Color me shocked.

Ready for some more color? There is no 1164 SW Hillsdale in Topeka, KS. In fact, there is no street at all named Hillsdale in Topeka, KS. But there is such a place in Shawnee, KS, just outside Kansas City. My guess is that in the backyard one would find chickens.

Google sure seems to think your wrong: https://maps.google.com/maps?client=ubuntu&channel=cs&q=1164+SW+Hillsdale+St+Topeka,+KS+66604%3F&ie=UTF-8&hq=&hnear=0x87bf0282a350ae01:0x247d5324ead23e3c,1164+SW+Hillsdale+St,+Topeka,+KS+66604&gl=us&ei=L19nUa2TOenuyQGv2oDYDg&ved=0CDMQ8gEwAA

Google is fucking with me! I clearly saw Swanee and then asked for directions to Topeka KS of which the results were ~60 miles. Top box was only Topeka, KS, with the generated box below it beling the Swanee, KS complete address. I wasn't trying to spread fud here.

At any rate, it's only 4 blocks west of SW Gage Blvd.

You need to remember that most of these guys never had to actually get up off the couch and turn the knob on the TV and probably do not believe that anyone would buy a TV when there are only 11 channels.

Yeah I'm still trying to get my dad to toss the Sony 13" (I think it may be B&W).  The feature on that TV was it had push buttons so you could pre-program the tuning of the station.  That thing is older than me  Tongue

Late 70's it was still 2-5-7-9-11-22-32 in Chicago. I'm going to do the following from memory in the same order: CBS-NBC-ABC-WGN-PBS-WBEZ-WFLD. The western reruns we on the weekend mornings.

Yo folks, this is cool and all, but can we get back to bashing BFL please?

This is not some pseudoeconomic post-modern Libertarian cult, it's an un-led, crowd-sourced mega startup organized around mutual self-interest where problems, whether of the theoretical or purely practical variety, are treated as temporary and, ultimately, solvable.
Censorship of e-gold was easy. Censorship of Bitcoin will be… entertaining.

Look at this awesome video! These guys are obviously highly trained professionals that ship thousands of mining units a month.

Luke-Jr told me on IRC last night that since BFL offered to ship him the unit, but kindly agreed to keep it in their warehouse until he wants it, that the unit was technically "shipped". An interesting perspective.  Roll Eyes

Edit: I brought this up in more detail in Luke-Jr's thread, he then locked it.  Roll Eyes

Notice that the eBay props are located at the entrance. Shouldn't production be in the rear? The last time I saw a company showcasing their production in the open was Krispy Kreme between Excalibur and Luxor in Vegas.

At the beginning of the clip, the female narrator states verbatim text from BFL's site:

Quote
Butterfly Labs manufactures a line of high speed encryption processors for use in bitcoin mining, research, telecommunication and security applications.

Can somebody point out to me any frame in that video showcasing anything other than bitcoin miners?

Moreover, you telling me that not a single client of theirs who has ordered research, telecommunication or security application products has one iota problem with their delivery schedule?

I sell barn wood. I can, and have, produced primitive reproductions for the Nashville and Atlanta markets. I can easily produce a limited line of primitive furniture. I can extend that line to include industrial-based barn wood furniture, currently in vogue, but would need to revamp my current facility to do such, let alone producing something I only have vague knowledge of, yet doable. Perhaps, I should just go ahead and do it under the guise of saving the environment, saying the hell with profit.

There is not a Goddamn thing wrong with BFL making a profit with the work they supposedly do. They can rake in the cash, for all I care. But to say at the onset, which they did, that profit is secondary, with security the network being paramount, is disingenuous at best, lying at worse.

Every company is allowed missteps. But, when missteps are publicly seen week after week after week after week (etc.), at some point a breaking point is reached, resulting in legit questions seeking answers.

The video does address many concerns, and sadly raises others. Honestly, I can't see how BFL could be a scam when they clearly are putting in mega man hours, and having mega stock on-hand. The only other answer if this is not a legit entity is that it's a long con.

Thanks for the video, BFL. Please understand where all the naysayers are coming from as hopefully you produce product you claim to be producing.

One more thing, for a 62 year old woman, Jody looks pretty good. Too bad she's probably... (a deal breaker on her part, not mine). (This sentence was meant as a complement, albeit the snide remark which may, or may not, have been appropriate, but it is as it is.)

Now, back to the video to see if there's anything I may have missed prior to somebody else bringing it to attention.

PoSt!

LOL! I just realized something while taking a shit after viewing the video. How the heck do they not know what the right hand is doing when they are setting at the same desks, with the principles being only a stone pebble throw away?

I'm still not seeing where they hid the 22 employees they had at the old facility, now at their new location. Even with the newly hired Hispanic temps, one would be hard-pressed to count to 22. Must be something special about that number, for even Mt Gox uses it.

Yep, it's special! I just counted all my barn wood suppliers and amazingly it came to 22. One more supplier, and I'll be a victum of my own success.

You do realize that a person at the front entrance can call out to the back warehouse inquiring how many boxes are on a certain shelf without having to raise his or her voice, don't you?

22 is the number of units they will have shipped in 6 months time.
