You're missing the "title" text from this comic : "Fortunately, the charging one has been solved now that we've all standardized on mini-USB. Or is it micro-USB? Shit."
[doublepost=1534387470,1534386321][/doublepost]I've been idly thinking that the Pyra really needs a VGA connector. And a 25-pin RS-232 port could prove useful. And a kitchen sink would also be a nice-to-have, so that we can brag it's got one. And a connector for a docking station. So many interesting things to think about for an imaginary future version!
You can find many examples of USB RS232 adaptors, and 15-pin VGA adaptors too. I'm not aware of any USB kitchen sinks, but it's fair to say I've not actually checked. And I've never come across 15-pin RS232 either; it's always come on a DE-9 or a DB-25 where I am.
Yup, that was a typo. I've corrected it now. Thanks. (I've been using a full-sized keyboard for a few days, and coming back to the compact keyboard on my laptop, my "2"-finger reaches the "1" key!)
Strictly speaking this overvoltage design flaw is a consistent issue that was intermittently observered, rather than an intermittent issue. What a _huge_ relief that it can be worked around in software! (A board revision and another year's wait would have been A Very Horrible Thing.)
One can't help feeling, though, that this mistake should have been discovered when the prototypes were being tested last summer. Perhaps there is a lesson to be learned here and the test procedures can be made more thorough/complete.
