    The videos are nice, but not really the updates asked for. That prototype has existed for quite a while (even I had the chance to use it at last year's Gamescom), so while informative, not really any news in those videos.

    Though I don't think we wouldn't hear about news when they happen. So I'm gonna assume no news is no news.

    ED's updates usually start with how he was busy so couldn't post so a lot might have happened, just won't find out until we're updated.

    This is like it was with the Pandora, when updates slow down that means it is getting close.

    Sorry I totally missed that, shows how disconnected I've become to everything outside of college in the past few weeks. I'm in 3 separate workgroups scrambling to meet some seriously tight deadlines. Today we got a whole bunch of work finished so I've taken a few hours off to relax a bit. It's fun and I'm learning a lot but it's so exhausting.

    I still read news updates during my morning and evening commute so at least I get to read whatever ED posts to my email inbox :)

    Have a nice weekend everyone!

    I hope the Florida time bill passes and sets Florida be on DST year round.
    So not only will the US follow DST but for half the year but a part of it will always follow it and then you have some US tertorys that never use DST.

    This should make think easier! :p

    But all jokes aside I am for the Florida year around DST, because I want more sunlight in the afternoon, I don't need it early at 6 am when I'm sleeping!
    But having some more time in the sun after school should be nice.:cool:

    No need to apologise. I just posted that to redirect further discussion to the right place. Ah...college crunch time. I have good memories of that :) Busy, exhausting but fun. Best time of my life.
    Thanks, you too.

    I'm originally from Indiana, when I grew up, the vast majority of Indiana didn't follow DST, but parts of it did, and to further complicate things, certain parts of Indiana are on a different time zone than the rest of the state. My wife is from one such boarder town where the town was on one time zone that did recognize it, but was on central time, I was in the city where we didn't and we were on eastern.

    Indiana eventually converted to recognize it right around the time I turned 20 to make things a little less confusing, but they're left with a fair portion of the population either speaking out against the change, or just flat out ignoring the change.

    Good luck to you Florida, hope you find your way ;)

    This discussion belongs in the politics thread.

    They should just kill DST. My schedule is inconsistent anyway, so I ignore the government approved clock changes internally, even if I change the time displayed on my clocks.

    If they killed DST Canada would have sunrise at 4am and sunset at 7pm during the Summer. We should make DST all the time.

    Did ED already order and receive the OMAP 5 SOCs?.

    Follow up question, are they even available anymore?

    The clock ought to be moved the opposite direction(!), so in the evening it cools off and people can get their sleep and when in the morning everybody now has to get up, you should have still a couple of hours in a cool room to dream on and get the rest one needs for a productive workday.
    Almost makes one suspicious of a conspiracy where the rulers do not want people to have productive workdays. Which also reflects in projects like the Pyra taking so long to be realized, such devices are too dangerous for the crowd to possess.

    Don't warry, even if IMAP 5 is not available and ED hasn't secure the order, we still have the option - build another new CPU board with alternative CPUs.

    Yes, all in stock. Memory as well.

    Normally, yes. The OMAP-Series is the professional series by TI, they usually have a long-time availability (AFAIK, you can still get the OMAP3 and OMAP4 as well).

    Now.... that would lead to a tiny bit of delays... I guess ;)

    Ah ok. Can I also ask if you have enough Omap5's for all the current pre-orders, I guess the question is, how many do you have?

    That's something I don't know myself exactly - as Global Components handles all this.
    I can tell you that we have enough for the first 550 units, as we're doing the production runs in batches of 500.

    However, before a part becomes obsolete, you are being informed upfront (like it happened with the nubs and - to my knowledge - the 4GB RAM will also become obsolete soon. Various other parts have become obsolete and already been replaced during the development as well).
    And so far, we didn't receive a notification from TI.

    So... we might have to start looking for new nubs soon?

    Didn't something like this also happen with Pandora?

    I've got 11k of them, enough for more than 5000 Pyras.
    Also, a smaller version (with less travel distance) is still in production and can be used as a drop-in replacement on our PCBs.
