    Should I have received my final order eMail already?

    And when did you initially order, if I can ask?

    New rooms, updated cases

    Right. Timeliness is another characteristic of quality. AKA "Better a mediocre plan executed now than a perfect one executed at an indeterminate point in the future".

    Cracked Case; Wasn't expecting it so soon.

    Every product is flawed before it is properly released. Background: The company I work for is making something called the Canute 360, for Braille. So I have similar experiences to ED. In a larger company these exact same issues would still happen at more or less the exact the same stage, with...

    My first impressions of the Pyra

    That is a very solid bit of thinking, right there. Thanks! P.S. I'm mostly responding to this so I'll see my own post in future and be reminded to try your approach. Self-centered of me.

    It reminds me of the Pandora!

    We have to hope that clever, automatic use of both low power mode and suspending to disc will do the necessaries for the great bulk of Pyra customers until the new board comes out. For example its in the former for an hour after having its lid shut, then if still not opened goes to the latter...

    It reminds me of the Pandora!

    Thanks for checking in on the forum. I knew about Liliputing, but never sat down to scroll through it before. Now I have a new daily site. Which is great (except for my productivity, of course). Minor typo on the spec sheet table: 'Diaplay'

    It reminds me of the Pandora!

    Its not something you got wrong as such, but it is a curiously narrow take to single out ports as an area where the Pyra falls short. Fair enough to say that USB-A 2.0 is not as good as 3.0, and Micro USB is less current than USB-C. However the Pyra has more port options than almost all new 14"...

    It reminds me of the Pandora!

    Its not that it won't handle it. Rather that A) those sites take an age to load everything (because of dozens of fetches, and network speed limits; things that don't change depending on the speed of your processor), B) you get non-relevant bars along the top and bottom which severely limit...

    It reminds me of the Pandora!

    Its hardly an answer, but hopefully most people on this forum and others like it have long ago realised that visiting one of those websites without extensions like Privacy Badger, even NoScript, is just inviting a world of pain, no matter your computer.

    Thank you @pmprog. I was in a rush so did not refresh my knowledge of the rules. I'm in the middle of a big house move and am describing some of the items I've just packed up. So I hope the mods can be lenient until I have a chance to unpack on the other end. If not then fair enough, I'll repost...

    I had an odd emu once too. Lovely bird, if a little strange.

    Update: The RiscPC has the Radeon, plus ViewFinder for video in with an editing suite (RiscPC makes for a surprisingly great video editor, albeit standard res.), plus latest version of RiscOS 4 (whatever that was), plus SSD. I think the install may have a problem with it. Postage is from the...
