Re: Figured out e3 issues

bitmain/antminer does occassionally issue firmware updates for its boxes, perhaps you could inform bitmain/antminer of the issue and cross fingers?

Re: Software upate service

The problem is still that this will notify you AFTER then change has occurred. You are still playing defense to recover. Warning is what you really want. Notification a week (or two) before the change happens. Probably doing both makes sense. before a major fork, new clients tend to appear on the n...

Nova has such a nice big variety of al...
