HA HA HA!!! The clear cases which were prototypes that needed a bit of work are long gone. Of course I'd happily eat my words if some cases of the new production happen to be clear.
Those were not used because it's the "coloring" part that makes the plastic more solid, and also a clear case don't distribute well the LED light in the right directions.

On January 25 you were at invoice number 010627, my invoice number is 011027. That's 400 invoices in between and it's been >3 months since then.

@ClockworkCoder when are you going to open source cgi-bin/checkpyra?

Quick update:
I fully recovered from Covid-19 now (I recovered quite fast - except that my sleep time increased from 5 - 6 hours to 9 - 10 hours, but that's now back to normal as well).

I also hired two more guys who help with the assembly of other items in the shop (Retrodes, SNES / MD games, etc.) so I finally have a lot more time again to work on everything else including Pyras in the shop.

The room is now finally fully setup (all shelves are setup and parts are sorted), so I wil continue Pyra assembly. These are still the remaining old cases, but I'd love to move on as fast as possible.
Any update on progress? I'm an Indiegogo backer of a Planet Computers Astro Slide as well so really working hard on my patience! From that last update I think the Pyra is going to arrive first (hopefully :cool: )

My guess would be that you'll be getting your Astro Slide first. I backed a Gemini back then thinking it would be a close race between the release dates, which turned out it wasn't \o/. Never the less I sold my Gemini due to several Issues (Bad Keyboard, no PD charging, no proper Linux drivers, bad battery runtime, no DP alternate mode etc. ) and I am still waiting for my Pyra to be produced. I hope it'll be a lot more thought trough than the Gemini was and a lot more flexible, too. I was used to the flexibility of a Jornada 720 xD, which my Gemini did not deliver :'(.

I'm not sure which will be first, I'm pretty near the front of the Pyra queue but was a late backer of the Astro Slide after the charging board on my Cosmo Communicator overheated and melted! The Cosmo was almost right for me, I was looking for a replacement for my old Nokia E90 but the external screen on the Cosmo wasn't as well integrated as the Nokia one and, although the keyboard was physically excellent, mine had the ghosting problem where keys registered two presses sometimes and none occassionally which made typing frustrating. I loved the Pandora but my nubs were never good and the screen ribbon cable is going now so I've got the purple tint issue.

Might me a bit offtopic, but my guess would be that those LCD Cables could be replaced by a flexpcb if EvilDragon does not have spares anymore. A shop here in Germany called Fischer PCB has an online calculator and according to them a flex the size 100x80mm and a quantity of 30pc would be 25€ each. For quantities sub 10pcs it is way more expensive per piece, sadly. The pcb has a thickness of 0,13mm. I'm not sure if it fits the connectors of the pandora, but that might me a small scale replacement option if enough people gather for a group buy and someone is willing to design the cable, which should not be too hard.
