    A video. Again. Mostly about cases.

    I thought that the shoulder button was called Meta rather than Alt-Gr. Not that I know the difference -- is there one?

    A video. Again. Mostly about cases.

    I personally do not care about the paint (in fact I can sympathise with the view that it would look a little different and interesting), but I do think that it is safer in terms of reviewers and customers more generally to paint it using the same colour as the base plastic. Also, there is a tiny...

    Even more to see here (now)

    I am starting to really like the "mixed" look, that of having different colours for different parts of the case. Would it cost any more for such a mixed look to be the standard? It seems to me that the only restrictions from the mould are that the battery cover and inner screen frame must be the...

    Contributing to PyraOS

    Quick question, as someone who has never used IRC much, is there a quick and easy way to find and see these logs?

    Some personal stuff - and prototypes building!

    Stone effect + black|charcoal grey = basalt? That may be nice. I suppose the new Pyra will look "used".

    The Absolute State of Linux

    Or we should have socialism (so very little income and wealth inequality) and workplace democracy, then it would be much less relevant whether it is easy or hard for men or women to go into management etc.. One good argument for aiming for equality of outcome is that it is much easier to...

    Tests, tests, and more tests.

    Because the cases are not ready, yet? And he has not, yet, received the final keymats?

    Tests, tests, and more tests.

    So far, I have been rather unconcerned about the problems with getting 4GiB RAM to work, partly because I could easily cope with 2GiB (though I expect 4GiB to be significantly better given my user behaviour) but mostly because it has seemed that the main delaying component, the main critical but...

    Spehlin and Phonetics

    @oskda One has a choice: take the spelled version of the English word, take the spoken version of the English word or take some easier to pronounce version of the spoken version of the English word. As for it being "unacceptable" to base all the vocabulary on English: a billion people would...

    Spehlin and Phonetics

    I disagree. Given current reality, a language like Lojban would get better traction if it took all of its vocabulary wholesale from English, the pre-existing international language that at least a billion people already have significant knowledge of. With the way it is now, everyone has to learn...

    Spehlin and Phonetics

    I think that back when the 'w' letter was introduced (I imagine some time between the years 500 and 800 CE) the letter 'u' was written identically to the letter 'v' -- note that when the Romans wrote in their majiscule non-cursive writing (from which derives our "upper case" -- our "lower case"...

    The Final Revision

    I did a little reading about USB-C, which I have not come across before, and it seems that in a future revision USB-C may be able to replace the microHDMI port as well with so-called HDMI Alt Mode: https://www.hdmi.org/manufacturer/HDMIAltModeUSBTypeC.aspx I find this interesting, though I do...

    The Final Revision

    In a perfect world I would have a full-sized HDMI port on the Pyra, as I have never knowingly seen a microHDMI cable before -- are they common or at least easily purchasable?

    Is there really a light at the end of the journey...?

    What gives the GPD WIN 2 battery so much more capacity? Is it physically larger than the Pyra's? If not, is it worth considering their battery manufacturer? I have read, though, that the Pandora (and therefore Pyra, likely, as the manufacturer is the same) batteries are much more long-lived than...

    Stop the sirring noise!

    Thanks! Presumably debugging would be of limited use AFTER the hardware is released (in the meantime most testers may need to tolerate the noise or use blu-tac or similar). Or perhaps the USB power circuit is unlikely to be of great interest to modders, especially if it is small (is it? If so...

    Stop the sirring noise!

    Yah, I know that it is uncool and/or pride-hurting, but what are the practical disadvantages (assuming it solves the noise problem)?

    Stop the sirring noise!

    I know nothing, but would a lump of glue around the capacitors not mitigate this situation? Are there significant disadvantages to that approach (other than perhaps pride -- it seems from a couple of EEVBLOG videos that this is 'uncool')?

    Open... and close... and open...

    But then you risk misplacing or losing the stylus. That would really annoy me.

    Open... and close... and open...

    I hate touchscreens, as they offer little tactile feedback, get grease onto the screen etc.. On my Pandora, I have used the touchscreen very rarely as it is redundant with other controls and I prefer to keep my hands near all the others; moving the hand from one position to another feels slow. I...

    Pictures, Videos and thoughts of a Pyra dev-prototype

    Do we have videos yet of the standard 2D emulators working? SNES, MegaDrive, GBA, NES etc.? It is difficult to think of "impressive" things that use no 3D rendering. How about Eclipse? I do not like it, as I think it feels "slow" and is too resource intensive, but that may be a decent display...
