Over the past few months, I've discovered just how many Chicago bitcoiners there are.  I've also realized just how many of you are purchasers of BFL equipment.  I've always wanted to visit them and see their fine facility and was curious if any of the other Chicago people would be interested in car pooling with me down there. I'm guessing it'd be about an 8 hour drive each way or so.  We could take turns driving and pool gas money.  If anyone's interested, reply or pm.  I'm thinking sometime in the next 2-3 days.

I'd love to tag along -- any chance you'll be coming through Idaho? Tongue

Noted.  If more people are interested in next week, I'll adjust my schedule.

No such thing as a cheap flight anymore...

$400 seems about the cheapest I could find.  Not wanting to use miles for this.

Look guys - BFL are really busy this week and next week trying to ship the first batch of mini rigs.

Can you please show some consideration and muster some constraint, and postpone this time-consuming show-and-tell thing until after the the first batch of the mini rigs has been shipped?

Thank you.

Inspector 2211,

Consideration for whom?

We are all paying customers of BFL...

Are you serious? What is a day of one person's time going to do when they have a estimated delivery of 12-15 weeks? Given past performance tack on another 6 weeks for good measure..

Who said anything about a whole day?  Give us the 5 minute tour during one of their cigarette breaks.

Sonny told me I couldn't stop by the last time I asked about this when I was in town. If he agrees to do a "tour" or whatever, let me know when you guys will be there cause I'd like to drive down to Kansas City from Des Moines and get a tour as well.

lol @ BFL suddenly becoming the tourist destination for the nerdiest of nerds. BFL, don't forget to install a soft drink machine for the incoming basement-dwellers, preferably with Mountain Dew and Monster drinks. Grin Grin

...except...you guys aren't going to try stealing anything. I mean, you guys wouldn't try lifting an ASIC miner.... or anything like that....haha... ha  Undecided

I am genuinely interested to see what kind of company this is...

Additionally, several miners are getting concerned about not seeing a BFL single ship for 2+ weeks now (as per the tracking thread -- yes not everyone uses it...)

Also, I would like to see a MR in action and if happy might leave them a check for a 2nd unit.
