Derr so you can be sure the output is correct?  You don't run tests in a live environment when you're trying to quality check a product... that's QA 101.  You run your tests against a known good data set with known results and compare what you get from the unit.



I totally agree with you two, but you don't need to run that for days on end it's a machine once you see once that it's giving you the results you want, you know it won't give you bad results unless the device fails for some other reason after. After a run on a tester for quality control, running it on live environment would both continue to test the device and aliviate running costs, since device failure is higher shortly after production then after it's been in operation for a while and they cost less to run than what they make in the same period.

I received notification that 2 of my 10 singles ordered on March 27 were shipped on June 9, and that the 8 others should ship on June 11.

That's not necessarily true.

When someone is testing a new CPU overclock, what do they do?  Well, they might run Prime95.  But they don't just run Prime95 for 5 seconds, then call it good because "it is giving the correct results".  No, they run it for 24 hours or longer, to be absolutely certain that the processor is stable for long periods of time.  Some people report errors as far as 15 hours into the testing.

So, BFL's testing period is 12 hours, after which, the units are packed up and shipped out.

Now, if you want to argue that BFL is purposefully holding on to units in order to get an extra $2.50 a day, well, to me, that's just silly.  But either way, it's purely speculation and goes directly against what BFL says they do.

True, but what he said is still pure speculation.  There is no proof that BFL mines on the units before they ship them.

Being that there are many of these in the wild now, they all seem to be working as intended, it sounds like their testing practices are working well.   Why is this thread turning into another debate for or against BFL.  Either buy their stuff or don't.  I want this thread for informational purposes.   Read the headline before you post, if it is something else, then make a new post.

I was expecting more posts today about shipping notifications. either everyone isn't updating us, or bfl's "big shipment" day consisted of ~5 singles. this wait is seriously killing me. lol.

One time I shook my BFL Single and a used nonce fell out.  Never got a good explanation about that. 
The nonce in question was 0x8d8f1f44.  I put it in a plastic bag for safekeeping.

But seriously where is my Single (er the Single I already auctioned off)?

From here: http://www.butterflylabs.com/production-update

"Please note:  Until we’re through initial Mini Rig shipments, you may find communications with anyone outside of customer service to be difficult.  Please be patient and reach out to Jody for the time being.  Announcements regarding abbreviated shipping schedules and future product (BitForce SC) release will be made on June 15th.  Until then we will be focusing purely on Mini Rig shipments."

Has anyone received any shipments due to the big day of shipping(full of crap)?

TL;DR - No Singles are shipping till next week.

BFL stated those two lines used different manpower and wouldn't affect one another.

Just wondering, is there some specific reason I'm not being added? It only hurts the people that look at the list without reading the thread.
