I am currently trying a number of emails to the local PCB fabricators in Thailand, that he suggested to me as alternatives to China and Indonesia and asking them that if they see Chris to contact me. ... long shot.

Good thinking!
Thank you for your effort!

Ente


Please someone locate him.
It just doesn't make sense.
To pour that kind of energy into a project and then just disappear like that?
It doesn't follow.


Yes and that is why many of us are concerned more about his health or safety given his past reputation for being a stand up guy in all respects. Very worrying. I have had no replies to my email to the one shop in Bangkok Chris recommended.

I hope someone has an answer to these questions:

Currently I run 14 KLN units. There seems to be 2 issues that I run into.

First is the KLN: went idle before work was sent error:

As far as the resources on the Klondike page http://projectklondike.org/, the reason is known, however, as I run a windows 8 environment there isn't really an easy way for me to recompile the drivers. Is there any other solutions to reduce these errors? Future cgminer updates will address this?


The next issue that I seem to keep running into is stability/performance of the units:

Unless I power up the units a certain way, I tend to get a lot of zombie KLN units, or units that are plugged in, however, does not hash at all (zero hash rate, zero work units). Upon system startup and powering of the KLN units, usually all units hash. Eventually one or couple of units will stop hashing at all after a certain period of time (the unit that goes idle is random, physically speaking). As I have 14 units, cgminer should show the units as KLN0-KLN13. The units that go bad will eventually keep trying to redetect itself, and the ID of the unit will keep climbing in cgminer (eg: from KLN13 to KLN253).

Is it possible that this issue be a possibility of USB overload? I have 3 units connected to USB ports in the back pane, 5 units connected to one USB hub, and 6 units connected to another USB hub. Temperatures are under 50c

Thanks for any assistance or knowledge on these matters Smiley


edit:
Nov 19
-Tried cgminers different versions 3.50+ to latest, no success.
-Only 1 miner was not hashing in the above USB configurations. Plug only 5 USBs in each of the 2 hubs; remainder plugged into the back pane of computer. Currently everything hashes, except two units are hashing at half the rate expected. Using cgminer 3.70.
-1 of the half rate hashers completely stopped hashing after 30 mins.

Hello,

On Sept. 1st I was involved in a motorcycle accident. I spent 3 weeks in the hospital with broken ribs, a broken leg and a serious head injury. My physical/mental state after returning home was poor, and I did not want to deal with any klondike issues for some weeks after that. I am ok physically now.

At the end of October I started reading through over 1300 emails I had, deleting ones that I could not help with and saving the ones relating to orders. After much procrastination, today I read this forum thread to catch up on everything that has happened. I avoided it for several weeks because I was sure it would be a colossal disaster, and everyone would be ready with pitch forks to blame me. I'm happy that bugs were found and fixed and that people are able to get decent hash rates, but I don't think I can help further with development (except perhaps push up previously completed bootloader code I wrote but never debugged).

At this time I want to try to handle refunds for orders that were never shipped for those requesting them. I have very little funds left for this due to a large medical bill here (no insurance), and having to pay for a friend's motorcycle (which seemed to vanish while I was gone). I am able to refund most of the orders at least partially if not fully. Maybe fully. I'm not sure.

I also have heaps of k16, k1, klego and picngo boards, stencils and other stuff here which I can ship for anyone who actually wants them at this point. I also have full parts and Avalon chips enough for about 12 k16s, which I intended to build myself but never started.

The last few weeks have been challenging for me and I have not wanted to deal with any of this. I came close to not returning here at all but decided it's better I try to deal with refunds to the extent I can, and at least let people know that I never planned to drop out, or scam anyone.

I hope you'll accept my apologies for being so late to speak up here. Posting sooner may have alleviated some concerns, but I don't feel I would have been able to help with technical matters, and didn't want to get involved again.

I'll try to deal with my emails related to requests soon. I have not read my PMs here yet and will try to skim through those in the next few days.

Chris.

Chris:

I had been following the thread with interest and was ready to buy when you disappeared.

It's good to see that you are on the road to recovery -- though not sure how far along you are.

I suspect the community may try to help as best it can.

Let people know what they can do to help. You may be surprised.

Just a note:

People don't need to quote your entire message to make it clear what they are responding to -- it clutters up the thread.

Chris:

It sounds like a bit of depression. I went through it after a medical disaster. The recovery was long, painful and depressing.

Luckily, in a way, nobody ever gave me time to recover -- and when I was busy I forgot about the problems and the pain and the depression -- so I think it helped.

I suspect people would like to see you involved for some time.

If nothing else you can act as a "project director" and I suspect people will keep the coins flowing if you can deliver some value.

Think about it. A good project director is always a real boost to a project And now there are the Gen 2 chips which could make the project really viable.

You figure out what to do -- get people to do it and keep it rolling.

Just a thought!

Best wishes for a smooth recovery. (yah I know!)

As for the 1% that think ill of you -- screw em if they can't take a good joke. The rest were really just worried about you.

Welcome home.

Thank goodness you are alive.

That is all I can say.

Where can I donate to help support your refund, medical and helmet fund efforts?

A great relief to see you are back! I, and several others here, were truly worried about your wellbeing.

I really hope you will find the energy to somehow continue to contribute to the BTC community; I really enjoyed following this project and had high hopes for the final design, and I'm glad to see that at least some projects have survived and been able to produce a functioning K16 using your design! That must be a boost for you, too, I hope! :-)

Welcome back!

Yay, I'm very happy to have you back here, Chris!
I'm sorry to learn some of us were right - you wouldn't go missing if not for something dramatical and lifethreatening.
So glad to hear you are still standing.

Well, I can't be mad at you - still, a one-liner "Had accident, am alive, will be back in some months" would have helped us a lot here. I think I can speak for many here when I say "nevermind the financial mess, we'll figure this out at some point".

I fully agree with Dave: You owe me money. I want you to pay it back by being, staying a part of this community. I mean it, I already started to form a mob to find you! :-)
No, in all seriousnes: If you would agree to such a delegating superviser-position, you would be, stay to be one of the tremdemous assets and contributors to this community. I'm not involved on a deep technical level here, but I had the impression that there are enough people here willing to help, waiting to be delegated! :-)

Again: I am happy to hear from you. Happy to learn you are not smashed to pieces. Happy to have you back.
Welcome home.

edit: Well, first of all, take your time!

Chris,

Thanks for coming back, I think it will work out better in the end but realise this is not easy.  I fear the amount of work put into this project was somehow the cause of the accident (fatigue) and hope that you'll find another project to put as much spirit into (and hopefully gain more).

I also have heaps of k16, k1, klego and picngo boards, stencils and other stuff here which I can ship for anyone who actually wants them at this point. I also have full parts and Avalon chips enough for about 12 k16s, which I intended to build myself but never started.

Are you interested in building kits or would you prefer someone else to take this on?   I guess you're looking for a buyer for the lot?

Thanks,
Tom

Welcome back BKKcoins. I wouldn't worry too much about folks here being upset -- your K16 creation is doing well!

Plus you have still been posting more frequently than Steamboat!  Wink

I suggest everyone with running K16s send a little something to your tip address to help you through your tough times.
