    Pyra why ?

    I think all of you replying to @matzesu's OP are right that as adults (unless someone is eg. persecuted for big some fraud and owes his former employees money, that is) we don't need to justify what we do with our money. However the question is right to ask, because the answers might be very...

    EverDrive GBA X5?

    Thank you for the info! Reliability and fast replies truly are one of the top reasons to choose DragonBox.

    EverDrive GBA X5?

    A friend wants to buy an EverDrive GBA X5 Mini. I of course pointed him to, but since they're not here at the moment, we wonder: how often are they restocked?

    A case of polls!

    Same. There has been a blender model released, but IIRC the moulds have since underwent some adjustments while at the "new" company (feels strange to call it new, but last time I thought about it it still was!)

    It's software this time!

    All you contributors to the board design and the pre-release software deserve a hall of fame section (maybe on this site, maybe elsewhere) to "forever" (can't type it without parenthesis on the internet of today...) be remembered and have a nice addition to your porrtfolios. If someone who...

    Release SubTerra

    It's a great game and if I had a Pandora I imagine playing it regularly just like people who solve crosswords or sudoku do their thing. Thumbs up for the release :)

    Are you a Linux user or Windows user? Or maybe a macOS user?

    To be fair it's been 5+ years ago and I hadn't given it a tenth of scrutiny and time dedication as I did over the years to master for dosbox emulation, so thanks for the news. I'll take these words as a start and might just start preparing for the pyra sooner than planned.

    Are you a Linux user or Windows user? Or maybe a macOS user?

    Windows 7 for my day job (and I can report that a regularly updated win7 behaves already as bad for privacy and efficiency as win10) and for games ("stripped down" using tools like nlite) at home, but I am aspiring to Linux for day-to-day computing and hobby. I could say I'm "stuck" with...

    Wanna watch an old computer render? You're in luck!

    Alt-tabbing to look at it every couple minutes. This is extremely cool (and I'm sure this statement only highlights my position as an influential authority on what's cool).

    Case Improvements and the keymat

    Purely hypothetic, but I would argue that if the costs are comparable, a specialized solution with self-adhesive logos would be less messy for assembly: 1. Repeatability: when spraying by hand, especially a couple hundred logos, there is a possibility of spraying too little or too much...

    Case Improvements and the keymat

    Oh I thought what is needed is a heat sink like a "radiator", that ribbed kind of thing. This looks like a heat pipe, sorry for the confusion I could cause with my previous post and it's unneccessary excitement. I'm so embarassed to have missed it. Thanks for the link. Also ED mentions sending...

    Case Improvements and the keymat

    Sealing: @EvilDragon if You could please post here a .dxf (or any vector graphic, it's no big deal to convert them) to describe the shape of the sealing, or at least tell us the inner and outer size of a rectangular approximation, then starting monday I'd be happy to volunteer and ask around...

    GPS weekcounter rollover and the Pyra mobile edition

    Not the first time it happened (see table below, notes from a lecture by my former professor Mr. George Preiss), although I don't know what happened to the functionality of any hardware (well, non-military hardware) during the 1st and 2nd "unwraps" of the week number. Further very basic on...

    5G is coming... not in my lifetime

    Sure, never for a moment did I mean this is beneficial in regards to us absorbing all of that. Seeing that graphic makes me think it's all about making it convenient to stream everything, deliver everything to the screen and let the phone or desktop essentially be a dumb terminal. And a...

    5G is coming... not in my lifetime

    Someone please correct me if I'm wrong or oversimplifying, but IIRC it's a correlation that (at least with what we use for telecom) the higher the radio frequency, the worse it is at penetrating terrain and obstacles. Regarding mostly Bernd's remark about content: the majority of the...
