@Hooka now this looks cool,
this Bycicle whit Engine reminds me on the thing whe call "Moped" or "Mofa" in Germany, these where "Motor Pedal" Bikes where you had an 50 ccm Engine and Pedals, which drowe around 25 kmh max these where quite famous by 15 - 16 Yeahr olds back in the days, but today they more likely drive Motor Scooters or something..
A modern "Pedelec" may be the same Concept but as Bycicle and whit a Electro Engine..

This is quite cool

I have become victim of mismanagement and carelessness of pine64. I ordered pinebook pro which was shipped on 9th Sept and returned back by DHL on 14th. Later in reply to my ticket, they said it was issue with shipping label printing and PBP was reshipped yesterday but as per tracking no. it is destined to Spain instead of India.
Post automatically merged:

Now they ask me to contact sales team, before that my ticket was juggled between support team and logistic team.
After few mails to sales team, their final reply is
"
We realized we mistaken shipped order 148188 to a customer in Spain. At this moment, have to wait until next Pinebook Pro shipping schedule that is around mid-late Oct.

May we know will you like to keep order 148188 until new shipping schedule or you prefer cancel order?

We apologize for the mistake caused inconvenience to you.

Thank you!

Regards,
Pine64 team"

So finally I asked them to cancel my order, hopefully they will refund money to my account only.

This week I splurged on anime.

I bought Another. It's a mystery thriller, with a touch of horror/creepy-pasta. It was great trying to guess who the "another" was and see how everyone reacts and copes. Can't tell anything more, because it's better to go in unknowing, and (re)formulate your own plot theories while the story unravels. (See the trailer). There are downsides in the storytelling (not as bad as that link makes it to be, I found it refreshing). warning: spoilers

I also bought Rising of the Shield Hero. I liked it because the good guy / bad guy is not a boring black/white thing. Lots of intrigues and situations that are food for moral thought. With a bit of a cRPG gaming sauce.

If you don't want your recommendations full of twee stuff going forward
What kind of sick person wouldn't want that though? :p Also I posted the link as a shortened URL because the forum software wraps Amazon links in media tags for some reason, leading to nothing being displayed. FYS XenForo.

Got both my PS Vita and pinephone (had to use an intermediary to ship).

PS Vita: This is a fantastic system, very premium build quality and killzone mercenary is nothing short of amazing. It's a shame Sony basically killed this before it even had a chance with expensive prices and memory cards. The homebrew scene is amazing.

Pinephone: the build quality is also awesome, tight tolerances and looks nice all around. Ran the pmos test image and all checked out well. I have already built a few Mobian and postmarket os images but i probably won't mess with it until their keyboard comes out especially since mms is MIA so far. I was shocked at how heavy it is since it is about the same size as my LG v20 but weighs a lot more. To quote a movie though "Heavy is good, heavy is reliable. If it doesn't work you can always hit them with it." The weight doesn't bother me at all and i look forward to it's capabilities growing.

They promised refund in 10 days but no refund was received, so I created another ticket after 15 days, but there is no reply after 6 days.
