It's software this time!

Should davesha skip the queue so he can work directly on the Pyra?

Gmail marked it as spam for me as well, would've missed it if it weren't for this thread.

I had checked over the weekend, just in case, but I checked again today, in Gmail's spam folder, and I found the email less than 12 hours old. I picked black (because I was a bit torn, so I let the price difference make the decision) and I got the E-SATA adapter, since I have an E-SATA drive dock readily available, and not getting the adapter to make it work for the Pyra just didn't seem to make sense. Maybe I won't use it much, but it would really bother me to not be able to use it when I already have everything but the adapter.

Edit: In my experience most E-SATA drives have their own power supply/adapter anyway, so the lack of power through the adapter isn't going to mean much.

Black and SATA adapter for me.

I thought the SATA adapter was supposed to be passive? What are the small SMD chips doing?

Also, could the power pins of the USB connector be used to power the SATA device if it only needs 5V?

Apart from the empty email, nothing got caught in spam for me. Haven't gotten any second German email, though the first one I got at around 6 AM had a working link anyways.
As for choices, it had to be dark chrome (though it's dark chrome + black controls if you think about it). +15€ is nothing after all these years. No use for the SATA adapter though. Hope there's not gonna be much of a loss involved from low demand here,

Should I expect an email if I ordered in 2017? Can't find anything in neither inbox nor spam folder :(

you guys will see where this is from soon ;)
More candy. My videos are uploading fairly low res, sorry about that. I'll try to figure out what's up with that for the next one. @EvilDragon is the real video master here :)


Ah, Ok. So The post in this thread was made from a Pyra to record a video posted in the other thread. It's the shorter, second video.
Thank you ToastBucket.

Why is the Dark Chrome version more expensive? Is the paint more expensive or does it need more paint or something like that? I'm also curious about which colour Pyra is more toxic.
It's more expensive, yes. In general, all special colors are more expensive than normal ones. None of them should be toxic - we're in Germany, I doubt toxic coating is allowed for normal devices here :)

The black coating also does cost me 9 EUR, but I can't possibly charge for that, as the final price for the Pyra had been announced already and I will keep that.

About emails landing in spam: This is probably because they're sent via PHP. This often leads to issues (no DKIM, etc.). I had the same issue with the shop but switched it to SMTP which made everything work properly.
Didn't think about that though, so LimeSurvey (that's the software) also uses PHP.

I'll check whether I can change that.

And no worries, if you didn't receive the mail because of that: I'll also send reminders in a few days :)
