p.s. link to all my pics...including the trashed box my Jupiter arrived in (scary) so it goes in basements around the world!http://lostgonzo.imgur.com/all/
You're a gambler. If I got a package like this I'd refuse to take it.
tried that ...DHL says the only way to refuse the package was to contact KNC (not DHL) then KNC and DHL would work it out..after that week went by
then KNC would RMA it (at my expense) and any compensation for damage by DHL would go to KNC and then I'd get my (maybe) broken (can't tell he would
not let me open it to look) package maybe 2 to 3 weeks later..yeah I was p/o'd it also does not help that DHL in midwest USA is not really DHL they toss
it on a truck 2x a week to come down from the cities to the bottom part of the state..I guess any trucking firm happens to flow by those days (ie was NOT
a DHL driver or truck) so DHL really really sucks in the USA..and he quite frankly did not give a f*ck in that he had a truck full of farm equip for his next stop
...likely if I did give it back it would have an 'accident' for me being a pain in the ass...sucked it up soggy /wet and all and prayed to the asic gods...
so hell took a chance ...took the package..if it was broke was not like I was not gonna get the RMA any faster...the package was soggy and miner was filled with
rain water in hindsight the fact it was soaking wet most of the trip..and the only way to even keep the miner in the box (middle was gone) was to hold both ends
together and 'hand carry' the thing probably saved me grief of how I heard they 'tossed' these light packages about back then..no way to do that had to hold
it together from truck to truck etc
so anyway dried it out worked great...hot/cold/winter/summer mined around 567gh 40F bsmt or 80F bsmnt no diff just hashed....lucky rain water was pure
so no issues there...all it needed was like 4-5 hours of panic and hairdryer and sitting on hands wondering when/if I should turn the thing on ..with a frigging
paper clip no less ($7.5k unit w/power supply and they can't make a switch!)
so again probably lucky it was wet and hand carried in hindsight the driver did not look like the kinda guy who would walk down the length of the semi trailer
with a box if it was light enough to toss it 40 feet.....(shudder still gives me the hebie gebies)
frigging Titan will probably come DHL (crap...had to remind me of this ..crap)
I did notice the lack of pictures of small miners in this thread, it means that mining is really turning to be a corporate professional task since the introduce of ASICs.
It's not that it is "corporate", it's just not interesting to post a small setup. Nobody cares that you have 2 S1s hooked up to a 750W psu. The days of rat nests, daisy chained motherboards with 20 pci risers and custom GPU mounts made out of chopsticks and bubblegum are in the past when it comes to bitcoin mining.
hey! I think my KNC Jupiter oct 2013 miner is cute! (of course it did make me 50 coin...maybe lovely is a better term...ah baby baby....ahem....never mind)
