I would be happy to handle bulk shipments to the USA in order to take advantage of cheaper shipping costs from Poland, then ship cheap or Flat Rate Priority here from USA. Once here, I can ship flat rate 2 day priority for $8 anywhere in USA.

If more people became Patrons I'm sure Krzysztof could spend more time on this. And that is not a random guess.

Yes it seems only some people get a reply(and a detector). I PM'd many weeks ago and i'm still awaiting a reply. While others are now getting there's? Whats the secret words one must speak?

I think he is very busy and putting as much time as he can into this. He is an admin on multiple projects and he has a day job too. He said all orders would be filled and I'm sure he will PM everyone when their number in queue comes up.

This is what I used to run it on a raspberry pi, borrowed from instructions to run ASICs on BU. It works for any USB device...

By default the user 'boinc' is not allowed to access the USB devices. To do so we need to change the udev rules (or better add one)

As root (sudo....) create a file in the directory /etc/udev/rules.d/ the filename is 50-group.rules, with the following content...

# /etc/udev/rules.d/50-group.rules
SUBSYSTEM!="usb", GOTO="skip_rule"
ACTION=="add", GROUP="plugdev"
LABEL="skip_rule"

This will add a rule that whenever a usb device is added the group for the device-file is set to 'plugdev'. This group already exists on the RPi and the user 'pi' is already a member of that group.

To activate the rule the 'udev' service needs to be restarted...
sudo service udev restart


Now unplug the usb devices, wait a little bit and replug them in.

Now we need to add the user 'boinc' to the group 'plugdev'...
sudo usermod -a -G plugdev boinc

The detector is 23cm x 5cm x5cm and it weight is less then 100gr. Package will be of course bigger as device must be secured but weight not change very much.

All details (including shipping cost) I will provide when I get a quotes from manufacturers and I confirm when all of them come to me...

Sounds good. I'll commit to 5.

I responded to the survey/poll that I was interested. I'll take as many as 5 depending on what the shipping costs are. Any idea the of package weight, dimensions of package, shipping company and city shipping from so we can estimate the shipping costs?

Are there any special requirements for setting up the detectors/calibrating that require other materials we need to purchase? Are there any potential issues shipping to US because of components?

Will the units be built and shipped from EU or US?
