    What we learned and did during the last 6 months

    Wow, @EvilDragon , what a legend you are. Any lessor entity would have succumbed by now, but you continue to power-on in your quest to bring us (and even improve!) the ultimate enthusiasts' hand-held ever created. I really hope you're getting more sleep these days. When I read the tribulations...

    Improve Volume Wheel Daemon (Bounty!)

    I think the confusion may be 'stop-notch' vs 'detents'. elw3's query was regarding limits of rotation angle. As I understand it though, I don't think there is any such thing as an 'endless' pot. Even multi-turn pots can only be rotated so many times in each direction. So if the volume wheel is...

    0 A.D. needs help. Anyone willing to contribute?

    Thanks Stan for all your hard work! It's been some years since I've checked it out, but I've gotta say, looking at the vid above, holy crap!, You'se have come a long way. Very impressive. I'll have to have another look. My game-dev time is pretty well maxed out with 'X-Plane 11', but maybe I...

    Pyra mobile broadband performance

    Thanks for the insightful response. (and for all of your other amazing contributions too!). Hopefully there is an easy solution, but If, in a worst-case scenario, a hardware mod is needed; I've used this on a device I made, it works great, and is completely flexible...

    Tales of an Assembly

    Sorry guys, running out of time, I'll try and get the rest tomoz. Re: charger plan: I, or someone else, makes a µc based schematic and code. Really, all I'd have to do is poll volts and temp, and add some conditions. Easy as.. I give that to ED as closed source. We (you mob) make a (very...

    Wow, so much to write about. You guys are awesome! And you've given me a great idea that'll benefit everyone including ED. I'm a bit pressed for time, but I'll try and post a full reply tonight :)

    Ahh, I love that you know that, but, I think there are at least 500 Australian Aboriginal languages? Gnamma is not a word in the local lingo. I'm sure it'll mean 'permanent waterhole' somewhere in the country though. Depends what you're into I suppose, and what you call living. I don't...

    Tales of an Assembly

    Awesome! I can't wait to get into it. The invention I mentioned includes a mobile chip, so I learnt how to send AT commands in C/C++. As I intend to use the Pyra as a phone, I'm really looking forward to contributing to phone-call and SMS functionality. Great! Thanks for clarifying, that's all...

    Tales of an Assembly

    I'm not sure what your point is. I'm very familiar with Li-Po batteries. I did a lot of research on them for a micro-controller-based invention I made. I haven't checked the sources of the wiki article you linked, but I can assure you they do not explode when charged while the ambient...

    But, I'd be the right way up!

    Tales of an Assembly

    I have ac in my home but I don't use it as the cost of electricity is huge here. That's beside the point though. As I said I intend to use the Pyra as a phone. If it goes flat before work in the morning, the action would be to place it on charge and leave it at home for the day, with no ac...

    Tales of an Assembly

    This is my only real concern. In my part of the world the daily maximum is often over 40°C, and so inside temps (with radiated heat and limited airflow, like your house or shed during the day) can often be way above the official temperature. I'm one of the wierdos who hope to use the Pyra as a...

    Pyra pictures (spoilers)

    It's seems surreal to be reading peoples' impressions of the received product. I still can't quite believe it. This is so cool.

    G'day folks, I'm new here (as a member), but have been following the project and lurking on the forum for years. I had hoped to be able to place my pre-order before signing up, so I felt a bit more legit, but as life goes I'm only just now getting myself into the position to be able to afford...
