    Few more...

    Do you have any (tech industry) heroes or role models?

    Favourite fictional character?

    And where did the name EvilDragon come from? You must be one of the most un-evil people I know. Admittedly, I don't know many people.

    Are there any non-obvious uses you have planned for your Pyra? (ie. Aside from web browsing, retro gaming and checking messages)

    Then, the name is misleading. => The name choice is evil.
    Oh no, paradox!

    Hi Mr Mrozek, my questions have to do with your main job.

    What kinds of video productions do you make?
    Have you ever done cinema or long-format TV?
    How did you start out in the industry?
    Can we expect an over-the-top retro advert for the Pyra in the style of 1980s throwbacks like "Kung Fury" or "Farcry Blood Dragon"? David Hasselhoff would be required for this!

    Q: Have you got any idea when this clone of the boards data over to your new server will complete?

    Q: Just how many TB of data is there to be moved?

    Just a quick addition:
    For more questions, it might be best to use YouTube chat, as this will be easier for me to follow than here.

    @EvilDragon Will there be a link to the live stream here, when I get home nearly one hour in?

    My question is after the Pyra is finished from a hardware development standpoint would you consider creating a cheaper, simpler linux gaming handheld more in the vein of the old GPH devices. I miss having a handheld device in the vein of my old Caanoo.

    Will the USA-spec cellular chip be able to also use European sim cards (like when traveling and buying a pre-paid sim card, will that simply work) ?

    I have one of the Pyra mugs currently available. They're a bit on the small side (coffee quantity required is twice as large as consumption device). How about mugs big enough to fit a Pyra in?

    In my experience that is totally unrelated to mug size. It's always true :)

    Hello,

    So far, over 1000 Pyras have been reserved.

    Are they all produced at once or not?

    I once read that only once 2 x 500 are produced, and the other pre-orderer have to wait longer?

    Kind regards

    Thanks for answering the question about smaller handhelds. Just to clarify, when I said cheaper I meant compared to the Pyra and Win 2. I'd probably pay max 200 euros for a device like I described. The GPD XD kind of fits the bill but I kind of dislike android as a gaming OS despite it technically being more practical.

    Well done @EvilDragon!

    I was actually able to catch most of this from my Gemini on the side of my desk over lunch hour. Timing was excellent.
