Wow, I did not expect this many responses from international orders.  A small update for those overseas:

International shipping is not cheap, and can be very slow when not using larger services that specialize in getting packages around the world quickly.  A large amount of the shipping cost is the same regardless of package size.  This means small orders are not worth doing internationally, at least when the origin is in the US.


If you're not in North America, and are only interested in a few units (1-10), I highly recommend looking through the forums for people shipping near your country.  My shipping system is almost exclusively United States Postal Service because I am able to purchase and print the postage rapidly thanks to a USB Scale and Thermal Label Printer that interface with Stamps.com.  USPS shipping is not cheap when looking at international orders that include tracking.


I will not be able to provide quotes on shipping prices to international orders until after I have received the units so I can clearly determine the weight and size of each unit to determine the proper box sizes needed for international shipping.

One of the three US based Stratum servers crashed recently.  It's currently being rebooted.  Hopefully most users ended up moving to another server when the first one stopped responding.  The IP for the offline server has been removed from the round robin DNS until it has recovered.

US Stratum appears to be under attack.  I'm working on routing DNS around it ASAP.

UPDATE:  Attack appears to not have been targeted specifically at BTC Guild's servers.  Everything is up and running normally from what I can see.  Let me know if you're having problems.  The new colocation project is still in process, which should provide higher quality connections and 100% uptime outside of targeted attacks, hopefully within the next month.

I wonder if the people attacking are script-kiddies or more organised Russia/China gangs.  Im not sure if BTC is big enough yet to attract attentions of 'professional' thieves

Many moons ago I had a ti4200 shipped -literally surface mail from Colorado, USA to UK.  Sent by a gallery selling Van Goch's bizarrely, it started out end of Sept and arrived just before Xmas.     What will customs make of Value: 1 BTC   Grin

No. Smiley

I just chuckle, the average for this diff is still > 100%.  No one complains when luck is exceptionally good.  Just when it starts to average out.

Except I wasn't mining here during the lucky days. Sad. Came from Slush's to try a different pool.  Sour taste in mouth about my decision.

Slush has 55% luck right now, think they are worse off for today anyhow

This pool lets people switch from luck to pps really easy, I do that instead though I wish difficulty never rose.   I guess it had to rise to keep BTC high and stable Huh

Quote
Bitcoin more than made up for last week's losses, gaining 18.8% to close at 2.67 g. Trading volume was light this week, averaging only 73 kg per day.

Although all the government currencies were strong this week, the Japanese Yen and the USD traded places, with the JPY up "only" 4.5% while the USD led the pack rising 7.4% and ending the week a stunning 51% above it's half-life curve
  I was hoping prices would rise dramatically again, this professor measures all prices in gold and he even comments on BTC prices http://pricedingold.com/

It all evens out.

However, variance is directly proportional to difficulty and indirectly proportional to pool hash rate.  So, if pool hash rate doesn't increase with difficulty, variance will increase.  Even on a pool as big as BTCG.

The website news section has been updated with the estimated international shipping costs.  Those prices are not final, but are likely what the costs will be.  I do have a friend that may end up shipping EU based orders out from the UK to reduce the costs slightly on small orders, but that is not finalized and is not something you should plan on.

Orders are still expected to go live on Friday, June 28th for the US based orders.  Estimated time is between 6 and 7 PM (PDT).  The orders will go live even if the first batch is not arriving until Monday.  The checkout page will inform you of the current inventory status, including your place in line, and the ETA for units to arrive in stock to fulfill your order.

Yeah, but thing's have been good on Slushy's pool. It wouldn't be right to abandon him just to buy one ASICminer(thats all the BTC i have). I'm just sick of paying crazy stupid eBay prices.

There's nothing preventing you from buying one on BTC Guild.  It requires a registration which is quite painless.  Would love if you stuck around or at least used the USB ASIC on Guild, but no gun to your head Smiley.


Additional update

Since I've had a few people message me who were burned in the past by database leaks of their home address on other Bitcoin sites, I wanted to make my data retention policy clear.

All orders will be kept in the database until the package is shipped, plus two weeks so you can reference the full order.  After that time, the database will retain the order information/tracking number, but not the address information.  However, paper files will be kept for all shipped packages.

Good deal.  I wish you'd posted this about 12 hours ago.  I already put my BTC in another order, and from the looks of it, I'd get it quicker on this one. Sad
