Got mine last Saturday, and only had to pay

Customs Entry 8.00
Import Duty 1.60
Import VAT 40.05
Total 49.65

We might have ordered a different selection of paid-for accessories, over and above the original gift/reward.

The backer number - mine was 3662 - was repeated in a 'Parallella Pre-shipping Confirmation' email sent at the end of August 2013. If you didn't respond to that (confirming the delivery instructions) they might not have been able to despatch your card(s).

BTW, I have some questions regarding Parallella usage.
1) can it be powered via USB only cause I have no adaptor for it?
2) what about keyboard support? Can it be used interactively with keyboard on USB or only network logon possible?

I'm still collecting needed parts for my own...

Hi there,

If you own a Parallella please help us build the most efficient virtual supercomputer in the world this week!

Who, what, where, when, why?

http://supercomputer.io

Thanks to the amazing folks at resin.io there is now a containerized application deployment platform for the Parallella board enabling super easy workload scheduling for a fleet of thousands of Parallella across the globe with the push of a button.

We intend to offer "supercomputer.io" capacity for free to academic researchers working in the field of machine learning. Researchers at Google, Facebook, Baidu, and Microsoft are making steady progress with deep learning algorithms thanks to virtually limitless resources.  What if this kind of computing power could be available to all researchers for FREE?

If we can get 1,000 boards connected to supercomputer.io, researchers would have a 18,000 CPU supercomputer at their disposal, putting it in the same class as some of the computers on the Top500 while consuming less than 5 KW. With 2 ARM A9 cores, the Xilinx FPGA logic, and 16 Epiphany CPU cores, this would arguably be the most efficient supercomputer on the planet!

The first live image processing demo of this new virtual machine will be run at the Parallella Technical Conference in Tokyo this Saturday.

How to Help?

Based on conversation with countless Parallella owners over the last year, I can tell you that "time" is a scarce a commodity as ever. If you haven't turned on your Parallella yet, PLEASE help us put it to good use! Too much time and money was spent for the Parallellas to gather dust in some desk drawer. Let's at least build something useful out of it.

Burn an SD card
Power up your Parallella and connect it to your router. We take care of the rest.

How is this different from BOINC?
Popular distributed computing projects like BOINC and Folding@home were designed for standard desktop computers. A new generation of low power embedded computers like Parallella require a new approach that puts more emphasis on small size and ease of deployment.

This resin.io is whole new way of scientific apps deployment to user devices.
Perhaps, we should think to take part in that with SETI project too.
BOINC grew from SETI, but SETI should not restrict itself to BOINC ;)
