Think you're right @Caine. Pessimism is one of the more accurate -isms. And I'd have to wait until all of you preorderers have had a slice, too... Still, maybe in time for christmas 2018? :)

I appreciate the need to not do everything in parallel, must keep the project sustainable after all, and of course no way should any of the hardware bug fixing be rushed! I await the fruit of all this effort with open wallet. That is, if kangaroo money is acceptable.

I meant to post earlier but time got away from me. My intention is to be at The Melbourne Central Lion from 3:30pm on Saturday.
hope to see you there.

For some reason it did not occur to me that it would be impossible to find a seat in a pub on grand final day. If anyones looking for me I'm standing next to the wall near the loos wearing a black acubra hat and a doctor who T-shirt.
I didn't see this early enough although I would have declined due to the grand final anyway given the crowds are probably still crazy right now!! (You're a mad man)

Mad man... yes well, I don't think anyone ever thought otherwise. ;-)

You know I could probably meet up some time this afternoon as long as you're willing to meet somewhere in the vicinity of Dandenong...

Only the biggest game of the year in Aussie Rules Footy. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Afl_grand_final


wow... That's the first time anyone has ever accused me of that. :)

That is a fast way to rack up your 'nerd credit'. Forget that there is a giant national sporting event and show up in a t-shirt for a sci-fi show. The hat though - that tops it out. My hat is, quite literally, off to you.

Love the Acubra hats - wish they made one big enough to fit my 65cm noggin. I normally wear Irish flat caps. Handy that they can fold in half and slip into a jacket pocket.

Elon agrees:
I haven't watched it yet, but he is one of the rich business bastards I actually like. Instead of someone like that...well, I probably don't need to mention POTUS. (I hate Bill Gates, but even he...nevermind, no politics...he probably isn't offensive enough anyway.)

I regularly fit the first category. I have literally worn a wide variety of hats in my life (some were required for various reasons). My favorites keep the sun off of me a bit, although aren't quite so...attention getting, although I have worn or country's similar hat when I lived out west. It was fedoras and similar for a while (real ones, usually older, not the "fashion" ones that don't even for the definition imo), until they became fairly popular and associated with a particular subculture. Now it is mostly some variation of baseball cap, solid subdued colors, no logos or designs on them. I should probably wear boonie hats, which I have a handful of, when I am outside in the sun all day (or say "fuck it" and go back to my fedoras). The best part about the baseball caps is they do a great job of keeping rain out of my face if I tilt my head down a bit. Since they are cheap I can replace them easily enough (although the one I liked most lost the strap on the back a few months back, and a replacement just wouldn't be the same, so I hold onto it. I have been on the lookout for something else I might like that is more durable, without luck. I can get another like the one missing the strap at Wal-Mart, but it will be new and look and feel wrong, and once I break one in it might fall apart again.). If only the boonies stayed on a bit better. I could always go back to patrol caps (which I always wore in unauthorized ways, a bit too crisp on top, although not blocked, and with the brim curled a bit to offer better side protection). Meh.

To follow up on my previous post, after complaining I decided to stop by a few places I infrequently visit to see what I could find. Most places only had things that don't work for me (embroidered logos, camo print, etc.). Eventually I found a somewhat odd light heather grey baseball cap that is a wool/polyester/nylon blend. It seems to be a higher quality than the Walmart ones, and it is thin material, so maybe despite the material it won't be too warm in hot weather.
[doublepost=1506957311,1506957220][/doublepost]Oh, and to kinda stay on topic, yes, thanks for flipping the pics for those of us that don't look at everything upside down. I love all the pics everyone shared here.

Somewhere off the coast of the EU
Somewhere between Australia (neelix) and somewhere central european (maybe Austria, I forget) for the last leg of the journey, unless I've missed someone out. Neelix, if you were last, do you have tracking on the parcel that works across the water?

Maybe send out the final(?) keymat version with a better case (don't laugh) for another world tour? I would propose sending a prototype, but way too many problems could come from doing that. I would be in if I could test it during a second round.
