Has ASICMINER/friedcat made any announcement as to when they are expecting these to be back in stock?

None that I am aware of. Maybe someone knows from a PM with friedcat. I am interested also to when these will be reopened for order.

Why do you people support a company that increases their own network many times over with your own money?

Units are in the field.  Only buy second-hand if you must.  Don't contribute to this madness.

We wouldn't settle for BFL or Avalon mining with their own equipment.  Why do these Chinese ventures get a free pass from that scrutiny?

ASICMINER is and always has been primarily a mining company, selling hardware is secondary. thus, anyone who cared to look knew well in advance that, IF they sold hardware (it was an if at the start) they'd have their own mining farm too.

Friedcat does not need your money to increase his hashing power, he makes PLENTY of money from mining to add all the hashing power he wants.  Selling mining equipment is mainly because he is producing more hashing power then he can deploy... so he sells the extra for profit.

People seem to forget, that the main reason for any business to exist is to make a profit for it's owners. A well run company will attempt to maximize the profit. EVERYTHING else the company does should be in support of this effort.

Don't like it? tough, that is the way it is. Cool

Capitalism 101. Having said that, I think the philosophical argument around supporting one company or another would be have been much better had the threat of competition from the likes of BFL or Avalon been credible. AsicMiner produced a product that resonated with the people, one to cover the low end (USB Miners) and another to cover the high end (Blades). More importantly, they shipped. That people gravitated to AsicMiner is an easy, foreseeable conclusion: there is no sustained, credible competition.

How long until these are back in stock? I just got funds from all my co-workers for 50 units and want to place the order as soon as we can.

Basically yes, the damage has already been done.  Way to go guys.  Chinese centralization will soon be achieved.

More like Communist Manifesto Plank #5.  We can rename the "custom hardware" board to "Chinese ASIC Shares" soon.

I want to see both BFL & KnC duke it out and take out them Chinese fuckers.  

they are greedy little turds.

I hope they give Chinese scammers an uphill battle

That operation and strategy is like digital Chinese SARS attacking Bitcoin.

I didn't want to go down the conspiracy path but ... Bernanke ... could be working for the Chinese government

digital paper promises at the benefit of the Chinese.

Why do these Chinese ventures get a free pass

China is taking advantage of stupid westerners

China will destroy small miner income ability with small miner western money.

Do not support China.

I do know you can't trust the Chinese.

I only went back as far as July 1.

60 posts in less than 3 days, almost every single one of them about "the Chinese".

I guess it was only a matter of time before we started getting swamped with posts about the yellow peril.  Roll Eyes

No longer buying/selling Casascius coins. Beware scammers.

Yep, ignored due to being a <achmed voice> racist bastard. Glad I wasn't the only one that saw that.
