Yeah, it's true, FPGA.contract benefited as a whole by the move to the new software. I hadn't really thought of that.

Though, I did promise that I would stop using these 7 boards for development, when the rest of the batch arrived and I had spare boards here. But, we sold out(!) so the GLBSE boards are all I have. I also felt that I could have rushed to get them online more quickly, and saved maybe a day of mining, but it relieved some of the pressure once I had decided I would just make up the difference. The few BTC were well worth buying me some time while I got the new setup up to speed.

Thanks for all the positive words, and thanks to kakobrekla for upgrading contract.fpgamining.com with the new graphs and stats!

This week's dividends will be coming as soon as I get the books in order and make a deposit at GLBSE.

It has been a lot worse with glbse. Down for day, up for one, down for days again.

Awesome!
I just bought two shares :3

I'll probably buy more as I accumulate more BTC.

Are there plans in the near future to release additional shares to buy an 8th FPGA?

Not really. My opinion is that the 7 boards we have are enough work for me given the amount I am earning in maintenance. If I was going to consider adding more X6500s, I think I would do it under a different contract. That's not to say that I'm at all unhappy with the current arrangement, though! I just thing expanding the operation would probably make sense under more flexible and favorable terms for me. Also, making and selling the X6500 keeps me busy enough as is. Maybe someone else would be interested in starting up a second X6500 contract? If so, I'd be happy to discuss pricing and maybe even a partial share trade. Let me know if you're interested!

I have been wanting to set up something exactly like what you have for a while, but I didn't want to steal your idea or form a grudge or anything like that, but if you think there should be a similar contract, I'd love to start it up!

I could give you a significant amount of share or whatever else you'd want. I think doing this together would be awesome!

Thanks,
Garrett

Hey Garrett,

I think it would be great if there were more FPGAs out there mining, and contracts make a lot of sense because of the high cost of entry. I received a lot of PMs today from people interested in this, so you're not the only one. I think the only thing to do is to hear everyone's proposals, and discuss pricing options on a one by one basis.

I think FPGA.contract is probably my favorite investment right now.  I look forward to other contracts coming and hope they are run as consistently as fizzisist has been.

there is no missing week. the latest post from fizzisist refers to a week that started March 5th
this is how he reports the periods for which dividends were paid
