    Company at work restructured and moved further south, got a new job, moved house, experienced family tragedies, new company at work got bought out, and are now moving offices.

    Oh, and experienced floods and earthquakes, although luckily wasn't directly effected.

    In other news, changed distros from. Mint (yes, I know!) to KDE Neon to Manjaro I3, started electronics projects (fixing and upgrading/modding things around the house), and travelled across the world and back.

    I forgot the best part. I actually touched a (non-working) Pyra (when the keypads travelled the world)

    Your alliance was with SONY, the company... then said company joined the dark side?
    ps: Do they have cookies? Or is that a lie too?

    Actually, it is with Microsoft.
    During the Pyra wait time, I actually purchased an XBOX ONE S and 200+ games for it.
    I also went out and bought myself a Windows tablet.

    Moved my family (three kids and wife) from the UK to Copenhagen to a new job.
    Started to learn Danish. Min dansk er stadig ikke så godt.
    Started to know what it's like to have no money!
    Started coding on my Pandora (make more use of the gadgets I have - see above!).
    Finished my part-time degree after many years of off and on studying.

    I have to say that my Live changed a bit more whyle i waitet for the Pandora, :
    I had a very bad Job as a Postal Delieverence Suplier (i drove a big Van whit Boxes full of letters for the Postman, and Womans of the German Postal Service, and one evening, i had a bit trouble whit a much too heavy loaded Post Card that i had tho unload via A Ramp on the Backside of my Van, also on this Evening, i had diverent Van because my Van was at the Workshop, so a Post Card whit lots of Comerzials fell of my Ramp, and i needed more time for my Tour,
    Im not the fastest, and it was just a Minijob, so i lost this Job pretty quick,

    I was quite Pissed and needed something to take the Money i got in (to forgett the Job), so i Preeordered The Pandora because i saw an German Video Game Show where EvilDragon intedruced the GP2X,

    Whyle i wait for the Pandora, i had also a Driver Job for a Shool, (i have the Big Bus Driving License, but this was also just a "Van" ( Mercedes Sprinter / VW Mini Van (T3) )
    Then my Dad who is a Beeceeper took me to this new Bee Ceeper Suply Shop in Eiweiler, where i work since then ..

    I read lot in the German Gp2X Boards, became a Member and finaly a Moderator on forum.gp2x.de

    O and my First Niche Silja was Born in 2010, so i think this also happens during waiting Time on Pandora...
