Hash rate as expected? power consumption as expected? No broken components? All fans running? unbelievable :-) I can not wait to get ours :-)

BTW, does anybody know anything about the ASIC chips that BFL will use [technology,specs,current development status,production status] ?

The actual performance is overdelivered. Instead of 50,8Ghs, I got around 52Ghs. Consumption is unknown, but Gigavps (or someone else) I believe already tested it, which is less than expected. We're testing different pools now, probably will stick to some local pool or will go solo, as even 0.7% on 2 rigs is about 6-7btc/month of loss.

If I am right, 50GH is about 20 getwork requests per second. for some reason my bitcoind client hangs sometime for more than a second. I hope this does not cause more damage than the 1-2% pool mining fee.

I have an order confirmation on 17 April 2012, I am waiting for them to contact me and offer exchange to ASIC as I don't want it to ship. I wonder why they have shipped 21st April orders and not contacted me yet ?

Here is their address...  office@butterflylabs.com, which you probably already know...

Send an e-mail and start by saying "Hi Jody & Andria" then explain your situation since these are the two who catch it soon enough.  Resend it once per day.  They are swamped as fuck with e-mails.  They will eventually see yours and address the urgency.  I got put to the top of Jody's "important" list and that still only lets me talk to her once every 4-7 days.  But they will get back to you if persistent.

Because the shipment is 50 pounds they should contact you before shipping anyway.  Every person who ordered a mini-rig sounds like they're getting contacted by phone before it goes out the door.

ice_chill, the queue is fair. The first orders are conversions from a larger equipment to two mini-rigs. These were probably ordered before our single mini rig orders. I will contact them if they fail the next deadline [2012-09-02]. I see little point in bugging them with emails, because You know what will be in the reply letter anyway [ ... your order is on schedule ... ]. You could request Your order number though and check if it is below 20 [my order number].

Also, I would take the mini rig. You can make some BTC with it before somebody comes up with an ASIC and sells it (right now it makes no sens to sell because You can earn the whole ASIC development and production costs in one month of mining).

I don't want the MiniRig because I will have to pay non refundable 20% import tax, and won't have another $15k to upgrade to SC MiniRig.
I will contact them to see what order number my MiniRig is at.

I am happy to take the mini rig and pay the import tax in Poland at our Institute (http://bioinfo.pl). I can send it back to BFL when You decide You want to exchange it for the SC equipment. But You will probably find alternative offers from people who can host it. Maybe even BFL can host it. In fact I would be interested to make a deal with BFL to keep the obsolete FPGA equipment in our Institute because I can use the FPGA boards for bioinformatics applications later [we plan to do this].

Don't they already have something worked out with Inaba for local colocation?

This is what BFL told me, but there is no confirmation from Inaba.

Wasn't there a thread by gigavps where he's looking for extra mini-rigs?
