    So, what's the current status of everything?

    It's quite telling that in the two decades I've been using Linux as my primary OS, the biggest, most headache-inducing problems I've encountered have almost always been caused by software written or maintained by Poettering. I've never met the guy, but I seriously despise his software design...

    Pyra as smartphone replacement

    Strange question to ask someone on these forums... but the answer is because I want to do more than a phone can do. Currently I carry my Pandora and my smartphone everywhere and use both a ton every day for years and years. With a Pyra, I am hoping to only carry the one device, do as much...

    Librem 5 phone by Purism

    When I say less than an hour, that includes standby time. On a brand new phone. Well I try not to make pie-in-the-sky promises I wont be able to keep in the first place, especially if my CTO and many others inside the company warned me repeatedly how this was going to go. But if you're asking...

    Pyra as smartphone replacement

    Well I just finally got around to placing my Pyra pre-order a few days ago (was waiting for xmas bonus) so I'm definitely not first batch this time around. As for the point of voice assistant, besides the obvious convenience factor (saying "set an alarm for 10am" is much quicker than opening...

    Pyra as smartphone replacement

    So I know this has been discussed before, but all previous discussions of this type that I could find were fairly old and speculative. Now that Pyra is close enough to release that most details are unlikely to change, this seems like a good time to bring this discussion back. Considering I've...

    Librem 5 phone by Purism

    So now Purism is offering a "Made in USA" version of the Librem 5.... for $2000. They still haven't gotten audio to work, battery life falls far short of ONE HOUR, they are way behind delivery schedules, and the phone gets hot EVEN WHILE SUSPENDED with screen off. Setting aside the laughable...

    Welcome to the updated site!

    Can you please remove the constant "open this thread in... Tapatalk | Safari" pop-over when browsing with Safari? It's the only thing stopping me from browsing with my phone. Telling it to continue in Safari does nothing, it ignores the button press. Telling it to continue in Tapatalk opens a...

    Latest update: Keymats are here, how strong will the logo plate be - and pretty cases.

    It took me a while to realize you are SONY, Nintendo. Welcome back!

    Latest update: Keymats are here, how strong will the logo plate be - and pretty cases.

    That title only considers total post count, with no regard for how far between those posts are. I've been around awhile. That said, I posted much more often when the gp2x forum allowed guest posts (posting without an account). I also made a few posts with another joke account (named "FBI")...

    Release Pandora Recovery SD-Card image

    I just wanted to point out, the AC power plug for my Pandora hasn't worked in years, and I can only use mini USB to charge it. I have had the Pandora completely 100% super dead and unresponsive, and when I plug in the mini USB port to charge it, nothing happens. However, if I leave it plugged...

    Latest update: Keymats are here, how strong will the logo plate be - and pretty cases.

    Hello, I don't post often, I don't even log in often, but I read these boards every day. I just wanted to drop in to continue to show my support and enthusiasm for this project. Thank you ED for the constant updates and impressive level of transparency and personal responses. Lack of the above...

    Case Improvements and the keymat

    Or we could make the entire case out of the same rubber that superballs are made from! That way if I accidentally drop my Pyra, it just bounces right back up into my hands! No damage, and I don't even have to bend over to pick it up! Also I get to practice my reflexes! OR We could drop the...

    Some personal stuff - and prototypes building!

    You know, I've often wondered about the inefficiencies in life and how we could reduce them. It's always seemed strange to me that my coffee maker, for example, uses electricity to heat up the warming plate, while my PC uses electricity to spin fans to cool itself down. I use more electric to...

    New Payment Method

    Good to know, thanks. I guess I was assuming that, given the vast plethora of payment options ED's shop already has implemented, adding one that allows an interest-free no-credit-check payment plan would be an attractive option.

    New Payment Method

    I really don't like Facebook. I find it to be insidious, annoying, and I don't understand why the vast majority of modern society is so into it. When I hear my coworkers talking amongst themselves saying stuff like "that's hilarious! You should post that on Facebook!" I just shake my head and...

    New Payment Method

    I do not have to explain my financial budgeting to you. I don't *need* the service, but I do find it convenient in certain cases. If you lack the imagination or perspective to imagine a scenario where it makes complete sense to use a service like this, that is simply a failure of your...

    How to make this java game work?

    I'm not sure if it will make a difference, but there's a Low Memory version of the JNLP client that might be worth trying. It is located at: http://www.wurmonline.com/client/wurmclient_lowmem.jnlp

    New Payment Method

    Wow. What an incredibly dense assumption to make about people you know literally nothing about. I think you are projecting, buddy. My financial situation is fine. I am quite certain I have a better idea how to handle my money than you do, random internet stranger. I almost got defensive...

    New Payment Method

    I was more referring to Elw3 who (i assume jokingly) suggested people should be punished for such behavior, without understanding that SplitIt basically provides a loan/credit, rather than a piggybank. However upon further thought, the fault may lie with me as my OP doesn't exactly spell that...

    New Payment Method

    You all seem to misunderstand how the Splitit service works. It's credit. Like a credit card. I could buy a $2000 Purism laptop right now by only paying the first installment. It's not like Layaway where I don't get the item until the last installment is paid, I would get the item...
