    Agreed. ED is hands down the heart of this community, and for sure the only reason I have personally stuck around to see the Pyra through to the end. There are also many other community members who offer their skills & expertise to the Pyra, as well as the Pandora.

    I'm really hoping for the Pyra to be a HUGE success for him and his team, so everyone can actually see some funds for their efforts. Praise and Accolades are great, but don't pay the bills ;)

    Aaawww, guys, I'm not that special.

    Just a normal community member like so many others here as well.

    There were many here who never gave up on the Pandora.

    Just dropping in to say hi and I was very happy to get the 8th last pre-preorder spot.

    Yeah there are lost of guys here in the community, who contribute much, but to have the guts to ask things like: "Hey we are bankrupt unless you double the price" and have a earned the trust to get a "hell yeah" feedback and then eve top it with "Hey lets do the successor" it a different task to me. Thining of the time and money you spend and risk there.

    All praise earned i say!

    BTW: I got the ~28/27 last preeorder (damnit, I soooo wanted the #42...).  (no I#m not rich or griedy, but my son wants one to, collekting all brithday/chrismast presents as dragonbox vouchers...)

    And I'm looking forward to 2016, the year, where I finally can say "I-Phone/Android etc. naah how mainstream and old fashined"  :))))

    But aren't physical controls, keyboards, resistive touchscreens, and removable batteries and SD cards "old fashioned"?

    Two possible answer 8which could even go together.

    A: replace old fashioned with mainstream (and fogive a non native speaker for the wrong word)

    B: Touchscreen keyboards, capacitive touchscreens, fixed batteries and onlinestrage are all dead ends and 2we" where right from the beginning ;-)

    I absolutely hate the first three, and think that the 4. one is difficult to get correct (read - client side encryption + deduplication).

    rsync is your friend!  It might not be easy to set up to work with Amazon Storage, or your Google account though ;)

    I see, we are of the same kind. Additionally with 4. you have to rely on the online availability. So my path at the moment ist to figure out the folowing: Having my necessary data with me (/home some data etc9 on an encryptet storage (SD prefered so far). Most if the time inside my Pyra. Whenever I am at home, the card is in my network acting as my "regular" /home. (weather in the server directly or in my desktop machine is to find out).

    It will rsync to the server, when loged in and again when logged out.

    My desktop machin might be a novena machin soon and will kinda portable in a aluminium/carbon mini suitcase. If I need data on the road I forgot at home, I'll have a ssh login from outsite to my server (and maybe an IMAP login for mail with offline IMAP sync.

    Very rough scetch at the moment, but "my path" without any external dependencies (except some online abbility for mail and ssh)
