    Help me learn how to compile Vulture-Nethack-3.6.6?

    Okay, so I started digging into what it would take to get Vulture-Nethack-3.6.6 compiled to run on the Pyra. I have never compiled anything - but would like to learn the process. Vulture is an isomorphic interface / overlay for Nethack. Although the source code is distributed freely on the...

    General issues regarding F2FS rootfs partition

    I realize that F2FS is the latest darling disk format of the Linux world. However, living on this bleeding edge has some pretty serious limitations and drawbacks. Installing the latest available-to-me OS image onto a 64GB SDXC card results in only being able to use/see the first 8GB of the...

    Shoulder shift yielding unexpected results in OS version 5.6.15

    So I was fiddling around in the latest OS version. Every time I hit the shoulder shift it pops up individual file browsers for every partition on the device. So - what's up with that? 5.6.15-letux-lpae-tiler Frustrating to not have that shoulder shift - assuming that can get fixed.

    Teenage Engineering on-ear headset with removable boom mic

    Dogs ate my 'good' headset that I was using for the endless barrage of conference calls I have been on during this extended Work From Home saga. I went hunting for a replacement, found mostly overpriced junk. Then I stumbled on these: At $80 they are not cheap. But - they sound awesome - I...

    Aggressive prompting for push notifications?

    System seems to be making a strong attempt to encourage users to accept push notifications. IMHO any site asking for browser notifications permission is simply wrong to begin with. I was rather shocked to see it happening here. Usually it's just the highly commercialized or skeezy sites that...

    Pandora-on-Pyra Emulator?

    OK, so, I was thinking - which usually gets me in trouble. The Pyra is going to have all sorts of system emulators available for it - eventually. The Pyra is going to have the majority of the Pandora programs ported over to it - maybe quickly? There are a few things that will 'get in the way'...

    About the stylus - a historical inscription for it?

    OK, I know we're too far in the mold production to be able to do this, but wow would it be appropriate. Just change Rome to Greece? https://arstechnica.com/science/2019/07/a-2000-year-old-stylus-makes-a-point-about-ancient-roman-humor/ (Adding said inscription to the stylus mold would require...

    An interesting e-ink screen...

    https://liliputing.com/2019/05/kingrow-k1-e-ink-smartphone-hits-indiegogo-for-299-and-up.html Interesting as a phone. More interesting as a potential display? It makes me wonder if that screen could be a drop in replacement or a hacksaw-in rear display potential for a Pyra.

    OneMix3

    So, I went searching for information on the OneMix2s KOI that @EvilDragon mentioned in a GPD thread and sells in his store. Then I saw mention of a OneMix3 in the works for June. Bigger screen by a bit. Not quite pocket friendly. Backlit keyboard with greater key spacing. Thinner. It took...

    Computer in a mouse?

    https://liliputing.com/2019/01/this-diy-computer-mouse-is-a-computer-in-a-mouse.html So - hats off to the inventor on this one! Great work on creating a computer that fits inside a slightly oversized mouse. The why is unimportant - the result is pure tech-nerd art.

    Legal ROM rentals?

    So I was reading this article on ARS: https://arstechnica.com/gaming/2018/08/can-a-digital-lending-library-solve-classic-gamings-piracy-problem/ And a lot of it is about this site/service: http://www.consoleclassix.com/ It appears to be Windows only? Which got me wondering... How difficult...

    Considering a Chromebook - don't laugh too hard.

    Situation: Hundreds of $ tied up in Google's Android Apps ecosystem - mostly in Pinball tables. I also have to have a portable to remote administer work hardware using Cisco apps. My main Android machine is a Samsung Galaxy Note 12.2 tablet. Great hardware. Love it. I have a bluetooth...

    Light Phone 2

    https://liliputing.com/2018/03/light-phone-2-simple-4g-phone-e-ink-display-crowdfunding.html I want that device, only without the phone parts. Just have it be a handset that gives an e-ink version of what would be on my phone and makes calls. I.e. a bluetooth headset with screen/touchscreen...

    e-ink e-readers & other e-stuff. No i-stuff.

    I mentioned in another thread about my struggles to find a truly open e-ink e-book reader. Those simply don't exist. Another user @rygD asked me to share the experience and answer some questions once I have the device. So, I took a step back and considered my planned uses for one. I shop...

    Pyramon - product idea for ED? Small HDMI monitor

    So, I was looking around for a small HDMI monitor to use for another project - and there is crap all out there. Everything I'm finding has either really bad native resolution (rPi stuff) or is meant for professional video camera monitor use and costs $$$. For what I'm doing I simply need a...

    Fitlet2 - tiny Compulab industrial fanless x86 computers

    I don't work for them and have no benefit from this. We're all into tiny computers here - preferably with Linux. Compulab ships the Fitlet2 with Linux Mint without charging a Windows tax. I paid $2.10 per unit to have Mint pre-installed - mostly as a vote/thumbsup for their Linux support...

    Thoughts around an Android Go VM for the Pyra?

    https://liliputing.com/2017/12/google-launches-android-go-optimized-low-end-smartphones.html IMHO this new version of the Android OS sounds like a pretty good option to run as a VM on the Pyra. Of course saying it's a good option and actually doing it are two entirely different things. But -...
