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

M

It's been announced for almost a week Sad, 2 days ago on the Guild website.  However, it might not be faster.  There's really no way to accurately gauge demand.  I feel like I have enough on order that I should be able to fill any weekend orders within one week, but that could easily change if a few people order 20-30 of them each.  I'm working very hard behind the scenes to organize my shipping line and inventory management to make this as smooth and professional as possible.  Just received 500 bubble padded mailers, and I have 100 various sized flat rate boxes arriving tomorrow (plus about 30 already on hand).

I know it was announced, but I somehow missed the fact that you have an order arriving on Monday.  That changes EVERYTHING. Smiley

BTW, I really like the websites layout and options.  Also, I think there are additional values in the API that I'm not currently capturing in my pool monitor, I'll intend to add them soon.

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.

You don't need to abandon anyone.  You do need more than one pool in your list for failover purposes so join BTCGuild and add it to your list.

It was bumped forward to 6-7 PM PDT, so 9-10 on east coast.  Hopefully on the earlier side.  Finishing up the store tonight and going to give it a few test runs (myself, not real orders).

The first 100 usb miners have arrived.  I'm unboxing and setting them up on Windows tonight so I can have a proper guide available by the time they begin shipping Monday morning.  Windows is apparently much more of a pain to get working than Linux from what I've been hearing.  I'll be testing chips on Linux later this weekend to have a guide ready for Ubuntu users as well.

So far, 18 tested, 18 working.  Each chip is producing the expected speed (331-336 MH/s).  No duds.

Since I'm growing impatient waiting on my Avalon, BFL is still 9 months behind on pre-orders, and I've lost any desire to trust a new upstart with "pre order" ASICs, I'm starting to consider buying a batch of ASICMINER USB miners, and selling off the excess basically at cost to BTC Guild users in the US that don't want to commit to a full order (minimum is 50 units), and would rather not join in a group buy.

Just out of curiosity, are any of the US-based Guild miners interested?  Price would be 1.01 BTC per ASICMINER USB (~330 MH/s).  That's 0.99 [cost] + 0.02 shipping (possibly 0.03 shipping, but I'm pretty sure First Class USPS with Tracking would be under $2 unless they're heavier than they look).

I am extremely pleased that you are offering this. I will be F5-ing frantically to be one of the firsts to order. Hopefully not having my IP banned by CloudShare lol
My only concern is shipping to Canada. It's not exactly clear that Canadians can order in this first batch and that shipping fees will be the same as US.
Can you confirm this?

Thanks again for offering this and for all the work you do.

Unfortunately, only the US will be able to place orders on Friday.  I'm working very hard at finalizing plans on international shipping.  While Canada is significantly cheaper to ship to when using First Class Mail...it seems to fall under normal international rates when using Priority Mail.  First Class mail does NOT offer tracking internationally, and the same with Small Flat Rate international.  Only Medium Flat Rate or larger includes tracking, but the price to ship a Medium box international is ~$59.  This makes it quite prohibitive on small orders if you want tracking of the package.

The above CAN change, but at this time, I do not want to get anybody's hopes up outside of the US.

They will be mined on for more than 5 minutes.  I would *prefer* to give each unit a full day of mining, including a few power cycles, but given the volume of chips coming in and likely going out, that won't be possible outside the first batch since they don't ship out until Monday.  But as you said:  It's a lot better they get mined on now, instead of being dead on arrival.  ASICMINER's warranty is only 6 months, and shipping isn't free to send your broken unit back or to receive a new one.

I'll be posting some pictures later just so people can see them in action Smiley.  I'm really frustrated with the Windows side...but apparently most of my headache is due to cgminer, not Windows.  Going to test the next batch using bfgminer and try to cut a step out.

Right now the testing plan is:  Plug them in, register all the drivers on Windows, reboot the computer.  Start up cgminer, wait an hour so the BTC Guild dashboard has a chance to get a full hour worth of shares, and compare the speed to the expected speed.  Ideally, each hub (9 units + 1 fan) should be producing ~2.9-3 GH/s.  Since my first test wasn't quite as organized (was excited just to get them working), right now I've got 3 hubs on one worker and I'm hoping to see 8.8-9.1 GH/s after an hour worth of hashing.

Nooooooooo!!!!!!!  Cry

I thought for sure that Registered Mail can be applied to all First Class Mail. My eBay purchases always seem to be trackable. I only wanted 6, if you figure out how to do, I would appreciate it. ~$60 is insanely high, I agree.

I will look at USPS Registered Mail for Canada.  I have only limited experience with international sales in the past, so that might actually be the key to shipping to certain countries without going over $20 in shipping.

If I had enough money to fund it...I would hang these up at christmas instead of blinking lights: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JRYCkyn41OU

They give a cute little blink whenever they find a diff=1 share.



UPDATE:  First test run complete.  27 erupters for 1 hour.  BTC Guild dashboard speed was 8821 MH/s.  Assuming 100% acceptance and +/- 5% variance, the expected range is 8541 - 9440 MH/s, so no problems so far!  Will be trying out another set (23) using BFGMiner next.  Apparently BFG Miner skips one step in setting up, and just requires a few extra arguments when you run bfgminer instead.

eleuthria, I PM'd you earlier but haven't received a response yet, so i'll post here.

I'm interested in getting 3 of these to start.  I don't have the BTC, and I understand you're doing this to avoid chargebacks.  Would you consider USPS money order?  No risk of chargebacks or check cancelations.


Put something in my tip jar if I made your day. Smiley
