OT - BFL ASIC

From: Stephen Kraus 
------------------------------------------------------
Just curious, because I think I remember this being mentioned...how many of
you actually ordered one of these BFL ASICS?

=============================================================== From: Lynn Dixon ------------------------------------------------------ I preordered the day they announced it. Still waiting on it to ship. Bfl kinda sucks when it comes to keeping ship dates

=============================================================== From: Joshua Estes ------------------------------------------------------ I preordered one as well. Pretty sure that they will never ship

=============================================================== From: Stephen Kraus ------------------------------------------------------ Yeah...I was in a discussion about there being a couple of companies offering these that are not shipping or offering only vaporware proof.

=============================================================== From: Phil Sieg ------------------------------------------------------ I was considering ordering one, but was not keen on paying full price = and then waiting to see if they ever ship and wondering if my money is = gonna evaporate...

=============================================================== From: Stephen Kraus ------------------------------------------------------ Also, apparently one of the guys in charge of BFL is a convicted felon for fraud (to the tune of $20 million)

=============================================================== From: Lynn Dixon ------------------------------------------------------ They have now increased their price and reduced the hash power of all their asics.

=============================================================== From: Lynn Dixon ------------------------------------------------------ Oh god... Bitcointalk forums are so full of vitriol and crazy talk. I place those forums in the same frame as I the national enquirer.

=============================================================== From: Stephen Kraus ------------------------------------------------------ Except in this case, that legal document is real. He is a convicted fraudster and a felon. So it is likely you'll never see them. I'm just worried because I've heard BFL mentioned a couple times.

=============================================================== From: Lynn Dixon ------------------------------------------------------ Every one said the same thing about bfl shipping FPGA. They shipped / still shipping a ton of FPGA. The sonny guy was still a part of it then as much as he is with asic now. I don't think its a scam as much as it is just a poorly ran development.

=============================================================== From: Joshua Estes ------------------------------------------------------ Either way, I'm getting a FPGA board this week and will begin to experiment with programming it. If it goes well, I may consider tossing up kickstarter thing, but who knows. I may not even get it to produce any suitable hash rates. - Joshua Estes @JoshuaEstes "If you live periods of your life in misery, when you remember back to those times, all you'll remember is the misery.
