Just wait a little more time for the entire batch 1 of Avalon to be delivered. You will see.
If only I got a penny every time someone told me that, I'd have for a 5770 Cheesy

Well I am at 81 GHs, and no more cards for me, not because I am afraid, but because they will have to build a new nuclear power plant just for me Cheesy. And than it most likely wont be free power....
why do you get free power?

You are simply not getting my line of thinking nor do I get yours.

I am simply showing you that ASICMiner produced 60-40 Ghash/s per $1k, which you doubted was feasible.

Every time another Avalon is delivered, you are losing more and more credibility. AFAIK you are the only one claiming that jgarzik, the Foundation, and all others who have received units are "part of the scam". I would be interested to enter in a personal bet with you that batch 1 will be shipped by some date.

 If you ask a customer of any kind besides this asic thing, the product not delivered on time is same as product not delivered, theres a delivery date for a reason. Heres why. 6 months ago, a 7950 graphics card costed me 290 euro. Now it costs 215 euro for same card. If I said to you, give me the money and I will deliver in 2 days, and than deliver in 6 months, what would you say? If I dont want to return the money you would most likely sue, and I would be out of shitload of money for lawyers and stuff because I cant win that. I am in a no way telling that Jeff Garzik is a scammer, he received it, and done a review. But what a scammer would do is exactly what happend. Deliver 2 items to the leading people in bitcoin community, and then sell batch 2 in a record time. I suppose they will deliver few more, batch 3 rolls out. Batch 1 should have been here a long time ago... Sure they will be delivered at some point, just not yet Smiley. They are already late few months, I am sure you wont mind few more Smiley. As I see, Basic is the smartest. He is returning the money in btc, in usd value. So if he held onto btc since summer, btc went up 3 times, he gets to become as clean as a newborn child,  and getting to hold 60% of the money. And people are also happy because they are getting at least something.

 Anyway if you want to continue the discussion about this we can do it in private, no use of it here.

 I live in a country where these kind of scams are performed at a much higher level, politicians do that here and there, and they do everything by the rules, so no law agency can touch them ...

Avalon is more than likely a scam. So jgarzik has one, I guess I should believe him even though there were many bets that were likely to be a good enough reason to lie and say you have a working asic. Bitcoin foundation had one, ok but do they still have one? It was my understanding the nzwhatever guy just brought it there to show it off. Also there is still the possibility that the machines turn on and produce heat but are really just a proxy for a gpu farm somewhere. How does one know when he won't release the source code?

I claimed that they are lying about sending or even having 300 units, and its true, come on do  you still believe they shipped 300 units and only 4 people received them after a month? That is what they sad, at first, than there were 1000 excuses, and explanations why only 1 person got it now its five, that ain't much closer to 300.
I believe that they had 10 like prototypes, and they send the best of them to people, actually fuc*ing them with crappy prototypes, and now they are hoping to collect enough money from batch two to produce batch 1 and 2 and send them both sometime in June, and than say to people like me - see we had 300Units, NO they don't Cheesy Cheesy

And 6 months have passed after I called BFL liars, I think I'm still right, more than a month since Avalon should have shipped, I think I'm right here two.
Now some day they will ship, but for now all they do are lies, OK and 5-10 prototypes Cheesy

When the few/many Ascis that are out now have had their fill, the rest will be released and the price of BTC will likely plummet.

I didn't want to.. but should have seen it coming.

Let's further derail this thread by pointing out that even if ASICs capture 100% of the market, it only represents BTC 3600 per day
to be dumped on the market (if the previous miners were hoarding 100%). Compare that to todays BTC 28478 volume in $USD only at Mt.Gox
you'll see that mined BTC is only a small fraction of the traded volume per day.

So how will the price of BTC plummet?

(of course having the pre-orders for batch #2 and batch #3 to be paid in BTC only is driving up the price of BTC but that was not your point)

Hio SolarSilver Smiley

I have a feeling that the price has been artificially inflated by those who wish to ruin Bitcoin.

From what I know.. the first BTC market crash is no different that the ones orchestrated by our private banks. Once again, we've allowed greed to set us up for another possible round.

Well - I thought I post a pic of our mining rigs as they come together.  Keep in mind this is being put together with Scrypt mining in mind, not bitcoin.  I've been given plenty of opinions about the fact its a bit "late" to get into gpu mining.  However looking at the math and knowing I'm mainly going at this from a scrypt mining route I believe I have a seutp that will be profitable quite soon.  I plan on keeping daily logs of energy useage, income, etc.  So if anyone has questions in the next month or two - feel free to shoot me a message and I"ll be glad to share any and all information! Smiley

That said... This is our basic setup for now.  I am a mechanical engineering student and am working on a server rack type setup with my teacher in Solidworks.  Once I have a setup I am happy with, I will move on to building it.  I hope to have that completed in the next 45 days.  60 at the most.  So with that in mind we wanted to start out with something simple.  I'm doing this as a partnership with my buddy who while be keeping the rigs at his house.  He does have small children so we do want to keep the rigs somewhat enclosed while being able to have adequate cooling since scrypt mining requires the use of memory which is only goingn to increase heat production for sure.  We want to be able to put at least 4 cards in these rigs to start, with the hope to get to 5 if needed.  We could not find crates big enough so after we found crates we liked, I simply cut out a side and merged them together.  Since we needed something to mount the motherboard to, we added a piece of piece of acrylic (plexiglass)  We then drilled holes for the MB standoffs and threaded those into the acrylic.  From there, everything was mounted up.  We now have a working box, ready for the 7970's with Arctic Accelero coolers that are currently in FedEx's custody on their way to my buddy's house.

Its been a really fun project thus far, that's for sure!

Anyways, I like that layout. Reminds me of a few different setups. Very clean and dense.

Meh I don't think so! I'm sure you'll still see some GPU pictures here and there, but there's always overclock.net for that sort of stuff.

In the meantime, I can think of a few examples of what's to come!

Thanks for the compliments.  We didnt put a ton of thought and effort into this just because its not our permanent solution.  I have something much better in mind, custom LED maintenance lighting included!  No, it wot be on 24x7.  Just on a rocker switch for when its needed or when showing off the rig to someone.  I figure in the future if we are able to expand, we are going to be trying to rent some space somewhere that will save us money on our power bill.  If its on a really nice looking rack, it should be less of an eye sore and should open up the number of opportunities we have at getting is placed somewhere.  Heck, I'm even thinking about talking to my buddy who lives like 2 hours from me.  Granted its a distance, but considering the power bill would be 42% cheaer - itd be worth it.  I should be able to get it to the point I never need need to touch it anyways except for monthly cleaning, etc.  Which I may be able to pay him or his wife to do - or just make the trek one a month.    I'll be able to afford to kick him a few bucks a month towards his own bill.

At any rate.  Crazy tired.... time for bed!  And sorry for the image size issues, I ALWAYS forget to do that!  Sorry!
