I'm sorry, I'm not an expert, I even don't know a shit of test Wafer, but this is blank for me.

Make sure you back up your wallet regularly! With Bitcoin-Qt, it needs to be backed up at least as often as every 100 transactions (both sends and receipts) or new addresses.

I guess it's time to let the cat out of the bag. Matthew and I have been secretly developing an ASIC mining rig, and we, too, received our wafers today.



The only reason they look similar to BFL's wafer is because they probably came from the same FAB.

[sarcasm]
I too enjoy counting microscopic transistors from fuzzy photos. My worry is that I only count about 3 million transistors, even with conservative estimates it would take at least twice that to do any hashing.

Fact is stranger than fiction. Some of us--not saying who--actually counted the full chips on the wafers. The jury is in and happy to report that they're all there, plus.

Dear ShadowOfHarbringer,

Usually I don't respond to unfriendly posts, but maybe this one needs a bit of addressing. We've had the honor of having Sonny in our corporation
for the past year. He is a bright and honorable person who had come face to face with strong forces behind the scenes without knowing. Many movies
have been made to try and demonstrate how governments and lobbying powers operate. They can kill, sabotage, prosecute or pretty much do anything
they desire without consequences as they have the power, money and weapons to make their point.

The United States Government does not recognize international bounderies when it comes to its interests and demands. The attack on the PirateBay
servers in Sweden is a good instance. Should the owners of PirateBay been Americans, I'm sure they'd already been serving for life in some prison in USA,
under charges of money-laundry, tax evasion (ads on the site), child pornography and so on and so forth. It's easy to hurt people who are powerless.
Even in France this may happen, eventhough on a much smaller scale ( I can't recall any at this point ).

Regarding whether we are a scam or not, the several thousand shipped units can speak for itself. We've used the experience gained in mass production
of our singles in our SC production cycle (we've got a MyData Pick-And-Place and an Oven for high-speed and high-volume inhouse assembly). Someone
mentioned the backlog is already 5,000. On a production speed of 500 units a day for instance, 5,000 will only take 10 days. We've already prepared the
infratructue for very high volume production, since the great portion of the orders will come in after the SC is released to the public. 5,000 units is not much
compared to orders we expect to receive after SC release, so we're very ready for it.

I hope this message has addressed some of your questions.


Regards,
Nasser



This does help, thanks you Nasser, for helping calm the FUD.

I guess I was mistaken all along.

Nasser, while in France working for some financial concern, one day opted to get into the Bitcoin mining business, thus leasing an unused photography studio in Kansas City of which a Chris Vleisides (Sonny's step dad) owned. He got lucky when he learnt that Andrew Vleisides was already a Bitcoiner (see Mt Gox email leak) and his cousin Sonny was already versed in the concept of virtual currency (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Orlin_Grabbe#Digital_Monetary_Trust).

After bringing them two on board, more of the KC Greek Orthodox clan followed suit, then naming Josh Zerlan (who had visited Greece) as their PR guy, getting lucky again, for he was a Bitcoiner who ran a mining pool and operated a data center, and just so happened to work in an office across the street from one of BFL's early business address, enabling them cred to their overall operation when Josh grabbed his camera and walked five hundred feet to snap pics.

I always thought that Nasser was brought on board at BFL because of his CV splashed all over the internet, yet no takers, even though his claim-to-fame was creating a PCB that played elevator music (really, Larry David).

My bad!

Now don't you feel quite the silly goose. I think you owe the honorable Vleisides and Zerlans of the world an apology PG. Course you'll have to find some that aren't named above because those ones are scumbags.
