    Assembly restart. Software work. And maybe our next SoC?

    Very cool video wall! I think the dog does not like the fact that Evil Dragon talks more to his electronics than to him ;). I've been waiting so long for my Pyra already, never the less I can't wait to hold it in my hands the closer the delivery comes.

    Should I have received my final order eMail already?

    Might me a bit offtopic, but my guess would be that those LCD Cables could be replaced by a flexpcb if EvilDragon does not have spares anymore. A shop here in Germany called Fischer PCB has an online calculator and according to them a flex the size 100x80mm and a quantity of 30pc would be 25€...

    Should I have received my final order eMail already?

    My guess would be that you'll be getting your Astro Slide first. I backed a Gemini back then thinking it would be a close race between the release dates, which turned out it wasn't \o/. Never the less I sold my Gemini due to several Issues (Bad Keyboard, no PD charging, no proper Linux drivers...

    A short-trip to Greece

    As far as I remember, Ed had some 500 cases ordered initially of which 300 something remained usable after coating due to problems with the thickness of the coating. As there are more than 1000 preorders already, it is unlikely that you will still get an old case if you preorder now. But that's...

    First look at the new battery cover and a general update

    The new battery cover looks like an improvement indeed. I was rather sceptic at first, but it looks like a rigid solution to me. I know a lot of covers that loose friction over time, but this one seems to have a proper latch that does not come loose easily. I really hope to get my Pyra soon...

    First look at the new battery cover and a general update

    That's exactly, what I was thinking in the first place \o/. We will see how this one turns out ...

    Should I have received my final order eMail already?

    A fairly good one, I doubt that the Pyra has enough processing power for it :'(. But I may be wrong ...

    Everything sorted into the shelves

    Well, well, this almost seems like my prediction to get it this year around Christmas could be correct. Nice to see some progress! Probably my GB cartridge reader will be ready by the time I have my Pyra so I can enjoy my Games in beautiful color :).

    New rooms, updated cases

    I'd say I have mine ready for christmas, I guess I was around order number 250 or so.

    Should I have received my final order eMail already?

    This is indeed thrilling. My 200LX is growing OLD. \o/ Glad to see some progress! Corona slowed this project down quite a bit.

    Should I have received my final order eMail already?

    The word is nucular ;) I guess anywhere on this Ellipsoid we call earth is equally fine as the curvature should be rather equal. If you're on the heavy side, I would recommend somewhere on equator, that makes you some lighter:D.

    Raspberry Pi OS Accused of 'Phoning Home' To Microsoft

    Ok, maybe the Desktop is not the last resort of Microsoft :D. Indeed I totally forgot about XBox, although I played with one just yesterday \o/. Azure may be Microsoft, but it will soon all be ruled by a small cute bird which is better at swimming than flying <3. I would have also found it...

    Good news! But I'm the patient kind of guy anyways ;).

    The Future of Pyra's CPU

    As far, as I know the better way would be to use Type C DisplayPort Alternate Mode. It injects Displayport Packets into the USB Traffic and has quite some spread now and does not use the USB 3 Lines in a blocking manner. Librem 5 has this implemented according to specifications. This is likely...

    Raspberry Pi OS Accused of 'Phoning Home' To Microsoft

    exactly this. I think this is rather a discussion about what MS could do, than what they do. I don't like automatically adding lines to my sources list either, but I can understand the reason. If someone is new to Linux, messing with the sources list is not something that I would recommend, but...
