So I'm sure people have emailed Sonny and asked where their single(s) is/are.
Anyone gonna post the reply he gave this time?
Since they have redone the power on the board they should also have some new performance figures .... anyone got them yet?

I am about 99.9% sure that in JUST 4-6 weeks ( TM ) we will be mining on these babies Roll Eyes

I would think you'd want them focusing all their attention on presenting you with your three-month-overdue product, rather than answering redundant emails...but like I always say, "do whatever you want".

So have you ordered any of these Randy, or are you just here to stir up trouble?  I have one on order and I've read through most of this horrible thread (may as well not have bothered as it's just trolling mostly), and it seems to me that you're more bothered about the delays than people who actually have orders in.

Might be time to find a hobby.  I hear knitting is quite therapeutic.

You obviously have not read any of the old thread (or this one for that matter). Even though there are 130+ pages to read though, (old and new thread together), they really need to all be read in order to know what you are talking about.

I've read it all.   I know the current state of things, as I also keep in contact with BFL.   What goes on this thread is 1 part actual information, 2 parts technical discussion of FPGA technology, and 7 parts trolling from Randy, DeathandTaxes, Goat, Kano and couple of others.

If we only kept the pertinent information (the testing from Inaba, the pictures etc from simonk83, the technical discussion and the odd post here and there from BFL and people who have spoken to them), this thread would be about 4 pages long instead of 59.  It's a mess, and I'm looking forward to it being closed when people receive their boxes.

Seems to me that BFL should have chosen a different venue as their press conduit and presented the 4 pages of 'relevant' information there. Also, if you think this thread is 59 pages long, you missed the the lion's share of it.

I am looking forward to people receiving their boxes too. I've been looking forward to it for four months now.

Try to keep up big man, I said this thread, not this thread plus the other thread.

7 parts trolling from Randy, DeathandTaxes, Goat, Kano and couple of others.

Pretty clear to see.  Just filter by his posts in this thread, and hey presto.    

Agreed, he's usually pretty helpful elsewhere in the forum.  Just not here unfortunately.  

Not quite as much of a dick as you, granted, but still.

Why is it everyone who's been in contact with BFL never posts any "actual information"? So if you actually ordered one, when is it due to ship?

Plenty of info has been posted from people who have spoken to BFL.  All the pictures of the boards for example.    If I had an exact ship date, I'd tell you, but I don't.   This week or the next as far as I know.   I'm not about to explode if I don't have an exact ship date so I'm not too worried, as long as I get it sometime in Feb I'll be happy.

So was that what Sonny said?

If you have actually read this thread you will see that there are many people who are interested in these ... not just those willing to risk $600 on something that is currently about 2 months past due and no built final prototype version of it even exists (only the previous one from a while back that had to be redesigned due to the 400% missed guess at the power usage)

Hell I'll even have to write some code for cgminer soon after these things actually start arriving if anyone wants to use the RPC API (Luke didn't bother to add that so either he's assuming no one is interested in cgminer RPC API access to it or he's just slack Tongue)

Interesting also that those who did quote dates most recently have not said they got theirs on the date they quoted and have not responded about any new expected date.

There are 4 weeks until March.
So if it doesn't arrive before March, will you be changing your tune on the subject?

Anyway, as I said before, hopefully someone will actually get a delivery confirmation and then I guess a few days after that someone may actually have one for real ... and we can find out what the real specs are for these, rather than the original specs that were based on a simulation (yeah they didn't ever admit to that - Sonny just accidentally let everyone know in an email) or the "power failure" prototype specs that supposedly will be less than the current "fixed design".

I do have this picture that I have not seen previously.

Sonny sent it to me. It does appear to use the same type of box but somewhat larger is size.



I have sent him another email tonight. I am getting impatient as my investment is not getting a return.
