    More Jalapeno Pictures & Shipping Update

    Attached are some more pictures of the Jalapeno. It's in one of it's prototype homes, but the design is changed and we are waiting on the updated box to be delivered now. However, the fundamental design will remain unchanged, just some cosmetic changes (laser etched top, no silver, etc...)

    We are not going to make the first half of November shipping goal. Right now, I want to say fourth or fifth week of November, but lots of little issues have cropped up, pushing the shipping date out a bit here and there. To be on the safe side, I would estimate the end of November / beginning of December as a likely ship date. We've had some trouble sourcing the VFD screens for the Minirig SC; the wharehouse told us they had about 5x as many screens as they really have on hand, so we are coming up short. The good news is that we've come up with an alternate solution that is so full of awesome, I am going to save that for a later update. It is, however, necessitating a redesign of the Minirig SC case, though it won't really affect the timeline in any material fashion, as it's just one part that needs to be changed a bit to accommodate the new screen.

    We are also still waiting on the HSF for the Single SC to show up - the factory has been a bit slow in that department, so that set things back a bit.

    We expect the final chip versions to be in our hands in ~25 days, with final assembly and shipping to begin a few days after that.

    Hey Josh. Thanks for the update. Say, something I've been wondering about for a few hours now. After staring at the BFL logo for days now thinking that I'd just encountered a similar pattern in my various Internet wanderings, I finally realized why it seemed so familiar. Could it be? Is your logo really and truly roughly based on a visualization of a common Lorenz attractor solution? See here:

    If VFD is vacuum fluorescent display (nice touch) what is HSF, heat sink and fan? I don't think HSF is human space flight in this application.

    Yeah, Heatsink/Fan. With regards to the Lorenz attractor, it's actually coincidental and wasn't part of the design, but it does look almost identical. Maybe it was a subconscious thing.

    Surely, you're mistaken! The logo is identical to Lorenz' strange attractor -- the mathematical construct which leads to the butterfly effect. Coincidence? Impossible!

    I love how the Jalapeno case looks! I hope the Single case looks just as awesome, though I realize it will need vents.

    Josh, can you confirm or deny whether the initial ASIC chip design (the one we see on the prototype board pics?) had problems and a new chip had to be designed? I'm surprised to hear that the chips have taken weeks longer than you originally planned. I thought the bottleneck was going to be sourcing all the various components for the boards, coolers, and cases.

    Beat me to it. But only because my Internet connection took a dump mid-post. Either way...

    I hate it when I post only to find that someone else posted while I was writing my message. It makes it pretty hard to keep up and add my own remarks. Still, I too have these questions. What's going on here Josh?

    Well, that is a bit dissapointing but the new photos are great.
    I appreciate your honest and consistent updates.
    Just promise me you'll beat the other ASIC guys to market!
