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.

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


I meant I want to convert it to ASIC rather than not want it at all. If you sell it you lose your queue in Line.

It was meant to ship today and I chose to upgrade, this makes my wait time exactly 13 weeks and 1 day (from 17.04.12).

I see.

What about asking Inaba to host it while you wait?
I know that's also a non-prefect solution for your situation, but that's what some people do to avoid shipping and import taxes.

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].
Good idea, I do have a feeling that BFL want them for another endeavor as well. Wouldnt that be hard also when the hardware is so closed ? I mean the LX150 outnumbers the BFLs chips quite a lot and also a much more open platform. But maybe BFL will open up therir platform later on, would be nice. If your like maybe we should start another thread regarding bioinformatics on FPGAs.

Start the thread and send a link. I am a junior member as well and I am not too familiar with this forum :-). Several people produce FPGA based solutions for mining. They should be interested in potential future applications. We have developed bioinformatics tools, but I had problems to port anything to FPGA (I even failed with the placement and routing in Xilinx ISE of the currently standard unrolled BTC mining pipeline despite trying lots of W updates and many detailed area constrains in the UCF files :-). So more experienced FPGA programmers would help a lot :-). There are some FPGA based bioinformatics products, for example Smith Waterman on Sciengines [http://www.sciengines.com/products/computers-and-clusters/rivyera-s6-lx150.html]. There are few other ideas we could discuss but I believe this will be interesting when ASICs arrive :-)
BFL seems to use Altera and these chips are apparently easier to "program". I am sure BFL will release the specs of the Rigs when they become "obsolete". But of course LX150 is a more popular platform and thus better for development.

Yes, I am hosting them locally.  There is a thread with the details somewhere.  The cost is $300 per month, per rig for hosting.  Any shipping you've paid to BFL can be applied to your hosting costs.

If you're searching these lines for a point, you've probably missed it.  There was never anything there in the first place.

Wow, Inaba, that's quite a deal.  You can't be making much on each mini-rig after electricity and air conditioning costs.  Now I kind of wish I'd asked you to host mine!  Oh well...At least I get to physically see and touch them.

Which is definitely worth something in and of itself. Smiley

Hey all, posting to notify that I have received a tracking number for my 2 from BFL. The tracking number says they'll be here on the 31st, but while FedEx has never been wrong (for me anyway; I order a loooot of things online), I'll post again when I have them in my hands.

FedEx?  Did you request that specifically?  I got mine via freight on a pallet.

I did not, and also thought that was a bit weird, since Giga's pictures also show a non-fedex shipment. There must be some logistics thing involved with their decision.

I guess it might have to do with whether the freight companies they deal with operate in your city.  The one they used to ship mine had a facility about 3 miles from where I live.

FedEx also does freight at competitive prices.

Well, could it be because I originally paid in February? Either way I did get my boxes exactly 12 weeks after April date, so whatever...

Looks like I have a long time to wait Sad.  Where did the April date come from?

Not really.  Remember, I am last (on the list).

So, I should get mine just in time for ASIC.  Sad

I will consider this depending on when mine is read to ship.  It's an attractive deal if the time between mini-rig and asic shipments is short, and apparently asics are on schedule for october.

Question for Inaba:  Are you guys really shipping 1.5 rigs per day?
