    Hobbies and interests: share your ideas for making the best of our time...

    While many of us are indoors, I'm trying to think of the positive ways to make changes in our lives. Has anyone started a new hobby? A friend of mine started modelling with clay. What I didn't realise was that you can model and bake parts of a model, and mold them together again using new...

    Thought of the day...

    Sometimes I feel I have something random to say / rant about that doesn't necessarily fit in any of the other current threads, so I thought I would start one. Anything goes as long as it's positive in some way (educational, informative, interesting, funny, etc) Today is a Japanese word I...

    aerc: vim-inspired email client

    Just installed aerc, and it's an interesting project, especially the tight integration with git, and vim-style shortcuts. Couple of deal-breakers for me is that it doesn't support maildir and is lacking in configuration options (Edit: I'm stupid, it does support maildir really easily, and there...

    'zines and book recommendations (Linux, Gadget, Game related)

    The main reason for the post was initially to mention that the entire backlog of Linux Journal Magazine has been made downloadable, and if anyone is interested, then now is probably the time to get them: https://www.linuxjournal.com/ https://secure2.linuxjournal.com/pdf/dljdownload.php...

    SD Card Organisation options?

    One thing I'm wondering, especially with the Pyra's preponderance of SD card slots, was how to better organise my SD cards (i.e. into categories such as roms, backups, music, projects, 3D prints, system installations, etc) I think many people start to collect SD cards, and usually smaller ones...

    A tale of running over the Pyra with things

    I hate the modern trend for wrapping the screen around the device. Seems very gimmicky to me. Also off-topic, I only just heard about and understood what people's issue with "notches" are. Now apparently they are trying to hide the camera underneath the screen. I'm so glad Pyra doesn't have a...

    Preparing for the countdown...

    Recently I've been starting to do a couple of things that I feel may help get to a running start when I finally get a Pyra (of course, in 2 months). 1. Learn Emacs keyboard shortcuts I'm a Vim user for quite a while now, but feel that the shoulder buttons and layout of the keyboard may make...

    MNT Reform - hackable, modular laptop

    Think I might have found an upgrade to my ThinkPad... http://mntmn.com/reform/ https://www.crowdsupply.com/mnt/reform I even like the trackball, and a full mechanical keyboard is a win for me. There seems to be a lot of cool stuff happening in Germany lately :)

    External indicator LED for Pyra

    I'm just wondering, as I don't believe that there are any LEDs visible when the Pyra is closed (if there are, then this thread is a bit moot), that it would be nice if there could be an indicator to notify things like, for example, a critically low battery or new message(s). I was wondering if...

    Suckless - "Do one thing and do it well"

    I've recently come across suckless.org. Initially attracted by st (simple/suckless terminal), and I like the philosophy: no bloat, and if you want extra features, or to configure anything, then you have to build your own version. They also have a windows manager (dwm) which intrigues me, and...

    Centipede 1/6 Replica Kickstarter

    This one I'm quite interested in... spent a tonne of money in 10p on it back in the day.

    Sony BVM-1454D Monitor

    I'm slightly tempted by this monitor (albeit I have no idea where I might put it yet :-), but have a few questions: Can it be shipped to the UK? Will it work with (a suitable plug adapter, for) UK mains (i.e. 240v)? Will it work well with the MiST FPGA, for systems like C64, Amiga, BBC? (I have...

    Pyra screen/case protection, and accessories

    Quick question. Does anyone have ideas/recommendations re keeping nasty scratches off our shiny new Pyrae (or whatever the plural of Pyra is. Or is it that the singular is Pyrus /jk)? Might as well spend the time waiting, on the purchasing of superfluous accessories... On that note, any other...

    I finally pre-ordered

    I remember, long ago, being quite excited by the idea of the Pandora. A quirky mix of all the coolest ideas (PDA / "hacktop" / handheld game emulator) and ethos (open source / community powered) wrapped up in to a tiny clam-shell body. I watched it develop with interest, and was so tempted at...
