    I don't see any arguments here, just (excited) discourse.

    And of course; there's the occasional attention seeker.

    I'll take that. That's about the warmest welcome that I'm going to receive.

    I'd offer you a hug, but we'd both probably find that a bit awkward.

    HA HA ! I don't want you to get banned as well. Thanks for the laughs.

    He's been irrational in his dealings with me.

    ...Look, I'm not interested in any sort of feud from a wannabe wallaby. That dude has his own issues to deal with. I'm here for my PYRA. I paid some money a year and a half ago - it's astounding that this computer isn't finished. Michael/Dragon his butt finally sent me a GPD-WIN over a year ago. It's been a great computer in everyway.

    I still love my Silver 1GHz Pandora - it's capable for email and such - retro-gaming YES - I'd like to see this PYRA before I die.

    I wonder who is the most irrationnal, him, or you ? My bet is clearly on you. As ED said, you've been banned not because of your critics but because no rationnal could make you listen to the others...

    You got me - He banned me for saying "what does he have in his pouch?" - an obvious reference to a koala. An offense if I've ever heard it. It sounds even worse HERE, taken out of context - but the language police are always out for blood.

    Why are you feeling offended now?
    No one offended you here. It was a valid question.
    From the way it sounded you were totally pissed off that you put your money in and nothing happened.
    Well, and then I simply wondered why you didn't ask for a refund before if this is weighing so much on you.

    No offense, no bash, nothing. So why do you feel offended here now and feel like anyone here is making you look like a bad guy?

    I guess the main problem is that you seem to see offense in posts that AREN'T even offensive.

    See, and here your bashing starts again.
    This is neither constructive criticism nor anything else helpful, it just sounds like you're trying to bash.

    Is it hard to stay calm and discuss things properly, without being offensive or feeling offended when no offense was there?

    I don't remember the story, but right now, it seems like you're posting with your old account, and I certainly didn't unban you, so it could've only been a temporary ban.
    And even those usually don't happen because of ONE post but because of a series of posts with warnings before the ban.

    If you want me to take a look at that, please send me the details about that (links to the mentioned posts, etc.) and I'll take a look at them.

    I'm NOT feeling offended in any way. You've been more than amiable. I was conversing with someone else about a certain Moderator. NOT YOU. I agree that this isn't constructive in the long term - I'll move on. I'm just surprised that this computer still isn't ready, but I'll wait. It will give me something to complain about.

    THAT is a tempting offer - for real. I'll get back to you on that.

    Not really, it is a small scale niche project with limited funding and a relatively inexperienced team. It is not possible to try much in parallel because of that.
    When I preordered the Pyra, I knew it would probably take another three years or so for it to come to market (the experience with the Pandora was not much different).

    Yeah it can be a bit frustrating at times, but mostly because I still really, really want it. So I will patiently wait and yearn for the day that the Pyra arrives at my doorstep.

    Umm... no. You were conversing with ALL of us.

    This thread that you are posting to is the current top post/item in the Pyra News public thread. It is, quite literally, the go to point for everyone on this board to go find out what the current project status is.

    If you want to talk to an individual member, click on, 'Inbox' at the top of the page. In there you can 'Start a New Conversation' and select who you would like to converse with directly.

    Just to be clear:
    You complained about the project status and how you have been treated in the most public way possible.
    You were offered a refund by the project creator and given the suggestion to consider introspection into how you interact with others.
    You first accepted the idea of getting a refund and moving on.
    You then decided to stick around and start insulting the project creator, a moderator and slighting the community in the most public way possible.
    The project creator and ultimate owner/moderator of these boards offered to review the moderator incident that you are complaining about if you would simply send supporting information to him in a 1:1 conversation. That is completely reasonable.

    The project creator/owner and the collective community just bent over backwards to accommodate you. The proper response at this point is, "Thank you."

    Getting back to the subject, I think most of us Pyra pre-orderers want to be able use the device with each CPU @1.5GHz at full load during a long period.
    I really don't wan't to hear that "even at 1.00GHz it will be more powerful than the Pandora".
    Also, like it or not, newer CPUs will still produce heat, because better 3D, more cores etc.
    So it's the right time to include that inside->outside heat spreader that should have been engineered from the beginning. And also add to this case modification the possibility of a micro-fan for future CPUs.
    I don't want to have to do it myself for such a pricey device.

    I'm one of those who are Ok with a pyra that uses 1.5GHz only sometimes. It is a mobile device after all. I do not want an external heaatspreader, that will only introduce more points of failure.

    I think it's unrealistic to expect it to run at 1.5 GHz constantly. Mobile chips aren't designed for that.

    My two devboards are running fine at 1.7GHz. With proper cooling of course.

    Yes but did that include a fan? Mobile devices are designed to throttle when you push them hard. I don't want any more delays at this point, the Pyra runs very well. @Askarus has been using one for a while now I believe.

    And that cooling works perfectly fine without a fan and has heatsinks small enough to fit into a case (and don't forget that inside a case the hot air naturally can't move away, so put your devboard into a plastic box as well)?

    If there was an easy way to handle this, how come even multibillion dollar smartphones company can't handle this?
