Oh, great! I had imagined something much more involved / time-consuming!Probably about 1 - 2 hours.
I wasn't forgetting that, actually. My Pessimist was just imagining hardware going to the WiFi testers end of August, them reporting back by end of September, prototype boards being modified by the end of October and being tested until the end of DecemberDon't forget: The molds for the cases are being moved AFTER UniquePlast comes back from holidays, and that is middle to end of August. So we won't have cases before September.
Yeah, it's two aspects really. The heatsink I think is meant to dissipate into the usb socket cage, but you don't want to thermally glue it there because that would make removing the CPU board impractical. And in a second look, the heatsink looks to fill up that void in the case, which is how it should be; either acting as a sink or as a radiator, you want it as big as practical. But that means it's up against the inside of the case at the side there. I guess that might be thicker polycarbonate, being a little more structural, but it's still the battery on the other side of that wall. And given you've gotten heat shielding for the entire bottom surface of the battery, you could just put a little wing on that sheet and let dropping the heatsink in wedge it between the heatsink and the case inside (assuming it is a self-integral sheet and not simply paint on the CPU board back).likely I think he's concerned with heat from the heatsink dissipating into the battery compartment. Just a non-professional view of the design I think with the casing and an small air gap, I don't think this would be that big of a deal.
It's the gradient descent algorithm they use to train neural networks!Basically, you're trying different resistor values and measure if that improves Wifi or not.
If it gets worse, you're moving in the wrong direction.
If it gets worse in both directions, you've hit the sweet spot.
I think he said something about keychains before.ED if I may ask, I'm a little curious, if you have decided yet, what is the plan for the already existing, non-optimized batch of cpu pcbs? Will they be used in the pre-pre order Pyras or will the pre-pre orderers get the (presumably not yet produced, but fully optimized cpu pcbs)?
Might as well sell the Sega CDX to fund something pocketable you'll be able to emulate Sega CDX onI might upgrade to a Pyra if it comes out while I'm home. I have been out for 11 months, I really want to be somewhere I know where I'm going to sleep that night and know I'll have food and will be dry. And I'm broke, but there is a Sega CDX in box in my storage that might go up on ebay to pay for this. . .
Really?Yes, they're over a year old, so even populating them might be problematic :/
It looks like I could get as much as $400 for it. How much does the Pyra go for?Might as well sell the Sega CDX to fund something pocketable you'll be able to emulate Sega CDX on
Well good, step to it and get your PyraIt looks like I could get as much as $400 for it. How much does the Pyra go for?
I don't feel as bad selling it, I mainly played our model 1 and my sega nomad. I got the CDX brand new on sale at the end of its life, the games by that time were gone or only crapy ones left so I didn't play it at all. . .
This isn't about what we're colloquially calling the mainboard - that would be a bit big for a keychain (plus I've already got a signed unpopulated one of those from the pre-preorder phase), but the CPU boards which plug in to the mainboard (or perhaps the other way around depending on your perspective) are a lot smaller and tall and thin rather than designed to host all of the game controls and keyboard so basically the size of the finished unit.Really?
There goes my hopes for a Scrap Edition Pyra....though this was based on my assumption that you had mostly working, but not quite perfect, mainboards lying around as well anyway....
