That is exactly what I meant.  They may beat BFL to the punch.

Don't boost us too much, or I will be under too much pressure. Cheesy

Seriously, we don't want to beat any one down. We just want to make our chips taped out nicely and work well. Smiley

Friedcat, 

Honestly, your command of English always impresses me.  Actually anyone totally fluent in two languages impresses me.  You may not know this but "beat BFL to the punch" is just an expression that means "get yours done first".

Historically BFL has been late on every one of their schedule predictions so I expect they will be late on this one.  I am betting they may even be very late.  Given that, you have a pretty good chance of being first to have a working ASIC.

Our family was terrorized by Homeland Security.  Read all about it here:  http://www.jmwagner.com/ and http://www.burtw.com/  Any donations to help us recover from the $300,000 in legal fees and forced donations to the Federal Asset Forfeiture slush fund are greatly appreciated!

Then my spoken English will probably disappoint you someday. Sad

I indeed didn't know. It is truer and truer to me that learning phrases takes a lifetime.

If I reply to this then my whole reply is innocent (not hijacking the thread). Smiley I'm not in the right position to comment our competitors, but we cannot rely on a small sample space of two events to make our plans and decisions, so we have to presume that there might be at least another brand of ASICs out in the network, or we will be over-optimistic.
