You couldn't make this made-up drama, up.

If i was to become a shareholder, can someone explain to me how to view the CEO, as someone who actually knows how to blow his nose correctly?
Moreover, is someone going to actually have a word in Garr's ear, and politely explain that there are people watching, that have lived 100 more lives than him, and can spot a bullshiting amutuer a mile off.

Post Gox.....enough of these opaque operations, already.  

Yeah. We're so rich now that we take 6 TH of miners offline for a week... ish? Oh, and the scrypt miners too. What the heck.

Thanks for the smooth transition & clarification of the current status.
Good luck with the setup!

Edit: I do agree with above posts though.

Oh man, I'm sorry, that sucks dude =(  If it is havelock's fault, they should reimburse you.  Have you done forensics to determine if there is any malware on your phone/machines with access to the google auth seed?

Nope, I had around 230 shares, and someone hacked into my Havelock account, sold all of my shares, and then withdrew around 10 BTC.

This is very unfortunate and frustrating news. I hope that everyone checks to make sure that both 2-Factor Authentication and country based IP locking are enabled on their account. It would also be a good idea to ensure that your password is something you don't use for anything else.

Guybrush01, you have Cognitive's sympathy and support.

Lets all try and prevent something like this from happening again.

- Samuel

Just a heads up for everyone.  I worked with Havelock, and we figured out how the hack occurred.  And they went out of their way to make things right.  I know that doesn't help the share price, but at least the exchange is trustworthy and willing to do the right thing.

I own some shares of cognitive, but I have nothing positive to say about Garret. To give you a glimpse of how I feel, this is how he ran a group buy that I took part of:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=235595.0

I would like the share price to come up a bit so I can at least sell off without too much of a loss.... but it seems that this is just how Garret makes a habit of managing his affairs. I believe Garret is not anything but an amateur in this game.

Considering your GAuth was compromised, you might want to share the nature of the hack for others ability to protect themselves.

It was a combination of a hack against my Google Apps for Business account, and a feature that Havelock has since removed that allowed you to view your GAuth QR code once you were logged in without having to re-enter a 2FA code.

Thanks for the info, I was suspecting access to the GAuth QR code somehow.

Good news:

After fixing some problems, 3 of the 5 TerraMiner units in Bozeman are hashing, and all 3 of the HashFast units are hashing also. You should see quite the spike in Cognitive hash rate.

Cognitive-PR, you may want to remove the two links in the footer of www.cognitivemining.com.  One is MtGox, which is rumored to be having problems of some sort, and the other is to bitbank.me, which appears to have expired and is now owned by a domain squatter.

Suggestion:

It would be helpful to tag the miners in the Eligius Pool to be able to track the status of each miner worker.  By appending "_name_of_system" to the end of the 1cogxXyYU2EXEbdcV9j18PWenRU7gAjt1 address for the username, each miner can be tracked separately.  Could help troubleshooting which miner has an issue by checking Eligius stats as well.

Here is an example - http://eligius.st/~wizkid057/newstats/userstats.php/1LxYXZpBaGTV11qFAy8DP2rHneBNRmQZ4s
By tagging the username, it shows the "Toggle Display of Worker Details"

This is absolute insanity and mismanagement. Why would Garr send all the functioning units to WA to be set up next week?
If he would not have them set up until next week he should not have sent them to WA until monday *cough* after difficulty change *cough*

I'm guessing it is because these f'ing kids that run this "mining company" ran out of electrical supply in their Mom's basement.

Wait, we have hashfast units?  I don't remember that... I mean, all units are in hand, but an inventory of hardware we have would be swell.  I thought I heard hashfast was a scam so units in hand is like, a pleasant surprise I guess?

I propose you create a google doc spreadsheet like this:

Device - Description - Date in service - Power Usage - Hashrate Each - Number of units - total
TerraMiner IV - Cointerra's 28nm Miners - <date> - <X watts> - 2.0e12 - 12 - 2.4e13

Etc. for each batch of devices, and link it on the main webpage.  Leave blank things you don't know yet, the entire thing should take 20 minutes to do tops.  THis way we can see our "promised hashrate" too

I proposed the inventory spreadsheet idea to Garrett some time ago....I have even shared a Dropbox folder with the COG guys containing an inventory template that is about 10% complete....

It shouldn't take more than an hour to complete this. The gains in transparency will be PRICELESS

I agree with everything that was just said here. Garrett and I are planning to meet tomorrow to go through inventory and type up a spreadsheet. As you said it should be very straightforward. We will also answer any questions that have been asked, and give an update on the hardware.

Stay tuned,

Samuel
