    The Communication Cube

    A Congress on democratic digital education and open educational technology on 12-14 July 2022 in Barcelona includes a workshop on assessment of video games. Teachers may need to register today at the latest if they need a certificate to include in their training file. (just saw it in a mailing...

    COVID-19 / Coronavirus Pandemic

    I'd leave it for another week, but I'm not you. I guess most people wouldn't care nowadays but for me catching COVID is still abetting the enemy.

    Global Chip Shortage Threatens Production of Laptops, Smartphones and More

    Oh, the way I understood it (or didn't) it was more like that TSMC was enough to invade Taiwan, not that Taiwan is only TSMC, but that even if it only was TSMC it'd be worth invading. Whatever. Still crazy. Well, I don't understand why anyone would start a war to get a factory or a company, but...

    Global Chip Shortage Threatens Production of Laptops, Smartphones and More

    I read some rumour somewhere about a Chinese expert going so far as suggesting China should invade Taiwan just to get TSMC. I wish there was intelligent life in this planet... Let's hope this at least reduces globalisation and we end up less dependent... While USA or European car makers don't...

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

    I'm not sure I follow you well enough and I don't want to dive so deep into technical issues that you probably know better than me. I get the idea you value a lot single core performance. You talked of emulation. I don't intend to use emulation much. I'm more interested in text reading, office...

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

    Hopefully. I really don't understand 3D. I'm just giving random articles from the internet: Panfrost Gallium3D Driver Now Competing With Mali's Binary Driver In Some Workloads Written by Michael Larabel in Mesa on 25 February 2019 Panfrost Gallium3D To Focus On Better Performance, OpenGL 3.1...

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

    :( So Panfrost can't be used ? Or Panfrost still requires blobs ? I know there are proprietary Mali drivers. I just thought Panfrost gave a 100% free alternative... I thought I used Panfrost in a blob free rk3399 once, but I use so little 3D that maybe I just didn't notice ?

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

    I absolutely agree. Having said that: did I read right that RK3568 has Wifi 6 in SOC ? I think now the wifi chip is not even in the same board as the SOC ? I kind of prefer anything with proprietary firmware in a different chip, but I guess anyway the Wifi functionality, just as some other...

    Absurdism corner

    Woah! Then I suspect I know a lot of people who don't know they have been entangled with a lot of dogs ! And I'm quite sure all the dogs I know never knew they were being entangled with lots of people... I mean dogs are highly skilled in emotional intelligence, but quantum physics ?

    Absurdism corner

    For those of us that are quantum physics impaired: How do you know you're entangled with a dog ? Do your tails move synchronously or what ?

    Global Chip Shortage Threatens Production of Laptops, Smartphones and More

    Now The Register says that TrendForce says that DRAM chips prices will fall slightly next quarter because of oversupply (and I guess crypto downturn). Go figure. https://www.theregister.com/2022/06/20/dram_prices_drop/

    The Caring Corner :)

    I've heard different numbers, up to 30% of patients. But I don't know what the proper definition would be, so I don't know how to count it. A close relative was in hospital with COVID in March 2020 (great health until then) and is more or less fine now, but there're moments he has shortness of...

    Absurdism corner

    It's an sport that started great, but they left it because soon it became too hard to hire ballkids.

    Should I have received my final order eMail already?

    Well, maybe there were a lot of preorders the first days, so the date takes many Pyras built to change. The invoice number could maybe change, I didn't remember it was stated there, but maybe they just don't update it until the date changes ? No idea.

    You mean beyond the thread named "Assembly restart [...]" ?

    The What Music Are You Listening To Thread

    I came across this and I can't say I like it a lot, but it's kind of fun, and I thought this is the forum for such a music. Sorry if it was already mentioned I didn't visit this thread before and haven't read 188 pages. funkinchely - The Rise and Fall of the Rolodex

    Should I have received my final order eMail already?

    It may be, but it may also be a new batch of boards with the TI SOC. I think ED had sourced some components in the amount needed for preorders or even more, I don't remember which ones. so even if the new CPU board was ready (which might take long until it is designed, prototyped, tested...

    Mekotronics R58X Rockchip RK3588 running Debian

    For a rk3568 (B2 ?) firewall/router I saw this FriendlyELEC NanoPi R5S board also in linuxgizmos. But I guess it doesn't count (yet?), because I can't find availability or price. Also, I don't know whether the RTL chip for 2nd/rd ethernet port needs blobs or not.

    Mekotronics R58X Rockchip RK3588 running Debian

    There seem to be cheaper alternatives, (Raxda Rock 3 Model A 8GB, 100,41€) albeit more barebone... Not sure. Linuxgizmos keeps a list of SBCs and I've only found these two with rk3568.
