Wrd.  I remember for my Visa merchant account I was paying 14% off the top.  It's just ridiculous.

LOL

And oh yeah, I'd rather pay a higher fee to Paypal along with the very real possibility they freeze your accounts for no good reason. WAY better than your own merchant account...

I LOVE people griping about their merchant fees, hearing about 14% gross fees, when any schmuck can get 1.5%. You really acquit yourself as a savvy businessperson.

It was for processing web-based adult content.  Visa considers it "high risk", thus the high fee.  But yeah, any schmuck can get a standard merchant account at a much lower fee... not so when it comes to processing for pr0n sites though.

I feel like feeding the trolls tonight because I am bored, so I shall post some proactive communication from BF Labs for you guys.

Hi rjk,

I'm writing with an update.  The units tested out at a performance level of 832 mh/s and not 1.05 gh/s.  This is largely due to their consuming more power than the simulation indicated and the on board power regulator had a hard time keeping up with the demand.  To resolve this, we've upgraded the power regulation from one 50w route to two 60w route (one for each processor). 

This has pushed our production back several weeks and the PCB's are only now finished.  They're off to component assembly in Taiwan next week, then back to us here in Kansas City for firmware set and burn in testing prior to delivery across the 2nd half of this month.  We can't guarantee more than 832 mh/s until we test, so you'll need to either cancel your order or accept the performance reduction.

Please let me know how you would like to proceed.

Kind regards,
Sonny K
BF Labs Inc.

So I asked for some pics... why not Grin

Regarding the updated PCB, we'll have photos on arrival at the assembly facility.  However, I'm not sure if we'll get around to posting photos of them until after assembly.

Nom nom nom. I can't wait. Cool

mmm. What was the date on that communicae?

If you're not excited by the idea of being an early adopter 'now', then you should come back in three or four years and either tell us "Told you it'd never work!" or join what should, by then, be a much more stable and easier-to-use system. - GA

I certainly do not mind a performance of 832 mh/s if the delivery is guaranteed.

I'm looking forward to the day when I can stack 2 or 3 of these on top of my 6-card rig and show people that yes, this little box does the same amount of work as this huge rig. Technology moves so fast...

Looks like cgminer will have support for BitForce singles.  Luke-Jr has posted source -- see link.

I know this 4-6 week wait time is brutal. I am increasing my production by 40% and each day that goes by is bitcoins I do not have! The wait is unbareable.

Well they *have* published an API to those interested in programming to it, and they've had what appears to be a Single available on the internet by remote access for a while. That's all one needs to write/test/debug mining software.

How difficult will it be to get one of these mining? If I were to get one, will it come with software to point at a pool right away or do I have to find someones code to do it?

Can guiminer use these?

From what I understand, cgminer handles them natively, but I could be wrong.

If you love me, you'd give me a Satoshi!

BFL could have answered these ... had they not been chased off this forum by flaming arrows and pitchforks.   Angry

BFL could have answered these if they had been reputable, not made false promises, and accepted pre-orders before a prototype was even working.
