I require a response immediately. As I have shareholders to answer to. Without further response, I may be forced to cancel my order and go with an alternate option.


Might have been an idea to not setup your GLBSE thingo and attract a bunch of shareholders before you had the product in hand...

Isn't that the point of GLBSE? To raise the capitol, then buy whatever it is you raised it for?

Actually that was the point... (building up investment capital in order to order the additional mining hardware above what we already have in the first place)... If I had the money to buy the additional mining hardware myself, why would I need to raise investment capital?

Also, the original plan was not to buy BFL gear. it was to buy FPGAs, but all decisions are essentially brought to a vote. Shareholders voted to buy the BFL gear based on the last minute news that they were in the wild and would now be able to meet 4-6 week leadtimes.

During that 1-2 day period BFL was extremely responsive (answering most emails within 20min at most) but once we placed an order they fell suddenly silent, and have been for well over a week now.

That's why I sent the strongly worded email. (looking after the best interest of my shareholders).

Wait, so BFL can do it and you white knight the shit out of it, but this guy does it and it's reprehensible?

I dunno actually, I've never looked at GLBSE.  That does make sense though Smiley  Epic Rolo fail Cheesy

I was really expecting the (confirmed) # in the wild to increase to more than 3 by the end of this weekend... but I guess not.

Question:  The singles can be "stacked," yes?  As in you can plug the USB from one into another single black box, so that only one USB port is needed on the computer running them?

I thought I read that somewhere...

i know you can hook up to 100 (that's what was quoted) using multiple USB hubs attached to 1 USB port, but i haven't seen anything about daisy chaining them.

I just reread the website description and that makes sense.  Can't wait for mine to be shippped!

I thought I read that somewhere...

To connect multiple USB devices to the same port, you need a HUB. A HUB has one port going to your
PC, and 7 or 12 or 20, etc ports available on itself. You can later connect other USB devices to those
expansion ports, or use all of those ports except one of them, and connect another HUB to that one
available port. This cycle can be repeated until a total of 127 Devices are connected to PCs USB port.
(Note that HUBs are counted as a device too, so best effiency is gaind when using less number of
HUBs who has more expansion ports on them).

True, but the chain can only be 5 hubs long.
So if you have 20 5port hubs, connect one to the pc, then connect 5 of them to the first one, then connect the last 16 to the 5.
