Hashfast only has one miner.  I doubt it even runs for over 10 minutes.
If you can build one, you can build a thousand of them.

What's the production of a thousand broken miners?   a few PH on a cycle of 10 mins on two hours off.  Under 10% usability?   Of course they could be busy printing all of our shipping labels on our shiny new baby jets.   

Schrodinger says the baby jets are both dead and alive.   I vote they still smell like a dead cat until someone opens the box.

If HF was going to mine with our equipment and keep the funds would they really do so on such a public pool?

Remove the tinfoil hats  Grin

totally agree... it would be unlikely for hashfast to be mining with customer hardware when customers have got pitchforks and torches outside the castle.   there is little to no chance that this is a hashfast address.  it just much too open...  its the number one contributor on eligius.  why would they be operating a 'secret mine' so openly.  much too blatant (thus extremely unlikely to be them) !

although i do wonder what happens during their burn in tests... they must mine somewhere.  i wonder, even if the burnin was just a few hours for each miner... i wonder how many bitcoins could be earned doing legitimate burnins on 550 batch 1 baby jets.

If HashFast was mining with your hardware (which I'm not even remotely suggesting), they wouldn't need a pool at all.  It would be highly unlikely a pool would be involved.

Sorry... but I beg to differ.  They were already proven to be mining at eligius. 
http://eligius.st/~gateway/news/quick-visit-hashfast-hq

Gateway/Steve is highly involved with eligius and has been doing website work(?) for Hashfast.

Normally this would be good news! 
The company would be relaying that the machines are in the final stages of production and are undergoing burn-in/testing for a batch of X for Y hours and shipping will commence shortly.  But lately like all things HF, they have been silent about anything concrete.

It could also be their own "private" allotment of chips... but I think that would be done on a private pool (like Bitfury). 
The reason why it is all hashing against 1 address is because the testing firmware is blown onto the sd card and powered up... they don't need to change anything for the test run.

If HF is already mining, they could be part of the reason for the growth of the Unknown-part on blockchain.info's Hashrate Distribution last 5-7 days:

https://blockchain.info/pools?timespan=48hrs
https://blockchain.info/pools?timespan=24hrs

If they "test" for 24 hours, that is 10% of their warranted lifespan... 8 hours would probably be sufficient to know if it is working/stable.

Interesting small development.

I just received a call from a professional firm that has been hired by HF to get customer feedback about the ordering and fulfillment process.

I took the time and answered all of his questions and in the end he said he would take my comments to them.


One question of note after I rated them a 2 out of 10 for 'would I recommend them'


them:
Quote
"Sir, what can we do to turn that 2 to a 10"
me:  
Quote
That is easy, better communication and give the batch 1 users our bitcoins back.  In my eyes that would totally redeem them and I would probably turn around and order more equipment from them if they did that.



edit:  another question they asked:
"What was the hardest part of the ordering process?" 

me:  "Deciding to give up 210 bitcoins, do you know what 200 btc is worth now? !!"

Would I recommend them??

They could do 2 things for me to be happy with them.
Either refund me full BTC
or ship the MPP with my order before the end of this year.

Impressive list of flights... When i order something that is shipped with FedEx, i usually receive the tracking informations at least one day before the package is actually shipped (notice of tracking number generated). Is this a rule or in this case they could have unselected the "send to the customer a notice of tracking number generated" tickbox?

My anger against what is wrong in the Bitcoin community is productive:

I dunno.

Fedex itself flies in and out of Mirabel (Montreal's other airport), and the schedule says its planes come and go in morning.

Cargojet, apparently flying for UPS, has a departure to Cincinnati (UPS hub) from Mirabel at 2250.  I suspect 400 BJs would about fill that 727!

Ah, being too optimistic again...

Talked to someone at HF. They said they're "anticipated" to ship the next 5 days..

For the record, I spoke to James.

27 + 5 = 32...
They are trolling us, and HarrisonS is doing a masterwork at finishing the job.

I just called them, and some guy named Rodrigo answered the phone. He said that the executives are in a meeting, and are about to release some information via email to B1 customers within the next couple of hours. He said that B1 customers will receive miners before the end of the year.

Does that mean they are starting to ship today for 5 days... or that they are going to be shipping after 5 days?

They will purchase electronic shipping on the 30th or 31st.  Then they can say everything is shipped Smiley

I may be a bit pessimistic from my June/July 2012 BFL orders that I received a few months ago or from every ASIC I've ever ordered from anyone.  (Except Mr Teal)
