So, what's the current status of everything?

3 paid units have been tested and dispatched.
Correction to that - there have been 4 paid prototypes dispatched. One went out and was received before Christmas. The other three were sent out in time to arrive on Christmas eve but were sidetracked to that Friday by the delivery companies.

I think, though, that only three of the four of us who got them have acknowledged it publicly.

I have mine and it's working quite well for what I have done with it so far. Yes, I need to spend more time with it. Everything wants my time these days though.

Bait responses? How about answering simple forever unanswered questions. Like what is the current status and what is the action plan for 2020.
Yes. The two are orthogonal issues and as such are not comparable. Whatabouting the discussion from civility to project grievances is not productive either. I understand you're not satisfied with the quality and/or quantity of the progress or its reporting, but it is unrelated to forum etiquette. You can't justify one with the other.

Unfortunately not, they are for 1100 Pyrae , I don’t know what is the correct plural of Pyra,
If it's English, Pyras.
If it is German, whatever the plural of a noun ending in -ra is, once you have determined which grammatical gender a Pyra is.
If it is Latin, pyra means (funeral) pyre, and is a first declension noun.
If it is Polish, it means potato, which also declines
If it is an outdated spelling of the Portuguese word pira (plural ?pyras) it can mean:
  1. pyre (heap on which corpses are burned)
  2. (slang) thingamajig, gizmo, thingy (something whose name is unknown)
  3. (Brazil, slang) a proposition, suggestion or theory considered absurd or rather unlikely
The various plurals are in the sources. I would go for Pyras.

I don’t think I will see more than one Pyra in Natura in my Life, as long I don’t go to Community Events like the Gamescom..
Not every Pyra user in my Environment would be that visible as Pyra User..

This means I have to use my Pyra more often, to attract potential Pyra Users,
I saw one Pandora in Real Life: my own Pandora..

So it’s my Pyra and mybe there is no Plural for me

uh ?
Latin first declension would not give pyre, it would give pyrae (nominative plural)
Adapting the table for pirata (pirate, one of the apparently few masculines in the first declension), it would give


By the way, I hope I'm not breaking some code of conduct, but what gender is pyra ? (gramatical gender, of course).
The Latin first declension does not care for gender, but we still would need to know...
I was assuming it was female, but that is a contamination from languages without neuter where -a endings tend to be female, and the Pyrrha of Thessaly being a woman.

By the way will any package use Lingua :: Romana :: Perligata ?

I didn't even find the time to play some games within the last week.
I hope you find time to play Legend of Pandora. I would hate for you to miss out on playing an avatar of yourself building a metaphorical Pandora on the Pandora. It's so meta it hurts my brain. I think the average play through is about five minutes, so not a huge investment of time.

I've not seen him post the arrival of cases on his twitter (I assume they go to him to take to the painters), but sometimes he holds news back to surprise us with a forum post, so I can't be sure. Seems to me though, posting a ~5 week job just over 5 weeks before the christmas break is optimistic. The plastics firm might have found quicker more urgent work to start and complete in that gap, and pushed the start of the 5 week run back to when the come back presumably 1st week of Jan, so actually plastics would arrive in Germany according to that date mid Feb.

So what's the current status of everything?

For me: the good news is that I don't have concussion from a falling suitcase, and the bad news is that I'm still an idiot (you get a "grub rescue" prompt in Manjaro for entering your drive encryption password in once, and just not for balking your grub config)

Anything happened with the magnets yet? Has ED got a Pyra of his own yet?

I'm guessing not, but I'm sick of just pressing F5 :p

There is no Plural for me as I don’t expect to see lots of other Pyrae , besides my own ..
Expect on Pictures in the Internet, but these are just some Pixels on my Screen, so not that real..
