    Planning the upgrade is different from actually doing it.

    I looked around and managed to find a PrestaShop module that does exactly this, but sadly it costs like 49-62 EUR...

    Edit; I would gladly give up my 75 EUR voucher that's for my 4GB pyra upgrade to cover the costs for that module if it's possible.

    What kind of awful software is it to charge money for what should be a configuration option?

    What's even worse is that PrestaShop actually has a ticket in their forge tracker from 2014 about this issue and it got closed in 2017.
    They have been aware of this for quite some time but never really done anything about it.

    Greedy software, of course.

    Or sortsighted software.

    Or software that knows that it has you by the balls and unless you want to lose your payment stuff and do a painful migration to someone else (assuming you even have the option), it can change it on you and you'll just have to go with what they say and want.

    Huh! It's open source? Maybe the expensive module is made by someone else then?

    It's fully OpenSource, yes. You pay for most of the modules and extensions, but the shop itself is OpenSource. :)

    Yes, the "free" in FOSS is "libre" not "gratis." Free as in freedom, not free as in beer.

    I hope there's some solution for this. I'm sure I can afford to pay for shipping anyway though.

    Just as an aside, the alternative to EvilDragon's transparent, honest process with no unrealistic timescales is the debacle at retro computers ZX Spectrum reboot.

    The Register has been covering it extensively and there's an article on the latest problems today :

    https://www.theregister.co.uk/2018/05/23/clive_sinclair_rcl_vega_saga/

    I know which I prefer.

    I prefer EvilDragon's process, but only because of all the reassuring smilies. :)

    You could say that the other method gets more headlines, and that "there's no such thing as negative publicity".

    If you're an idiot.

    Actually I got the original Vega. Played it once.

    I am an idiot.

    Are the 20 proto-Pyras due to be assembled soonish?

    I've got some news for you, but haven't had the time to post these yet...
    I hope to find an hour within the next few days.

    Invent a 25th hour. In this increasingly conformity-flexible world, who needs 24 hours in a day? Just add one and give the next day 23. Problem solved!

    No each day needs 26 hours (like in Star Trek DS9)

    Why not just make each hour 57min, 36sec long?
