    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...

    Looking to buy.... something

    How about a Tandy WP-2 Word Processor? I actually used a Tandy WP-3 as my main computer through the first year of university... in 2006... I still have that WP-3 and very fond off its odd Word Processor software. Only difference with the WP-2 (which I bought as a back-up) is WP-2 is US...

    Agreed. But can we have logo plates made from bacon?

    Beauty competition.

    ED explained why he wouldn't do that in the same post where he explained that he could do that. It would not be an identical black and almost-but-not-quite the same looks much worse than high contrast, to paraphrase.

    Beauty competition.

    Its called the 'bikeshed principle'. The amount of time spent debating things inversely correlates with its importance. In any important meeting the really important stuff will be quickly passed over because attendees don't feel qualified to give their tuppeny's worth. Whereas when you get to...

    They look fantastic. Well done. Seeing them come together into such a tight package after all these years must be a special feeling. My vote is for the black. I think it looks great.

    Close up high volume keyboard video

    Thank you for an instructive post @Grench, in particular for the "half way between a remote and a HP calculator" reference. I don't think I was or am labouring under a misinterpretation though. I'm an ex-Pandora-owner, so I know what to expect of the form factor. Let me explain a bit better...

    Close up high volume keyboard video

    Can the forum recommend me a video which shows a close up of someone using the keyboard for a sustained period (thumb or desk typing), with a camera angle that focuses on the keyboard, and good enough sound that really captures the click? I'm looking to get a sense of how tactile the keys feel...

    How is the Pyra supply chain holding up during the pandemic?

    Thank you FBnil and ED. I had missed the update you mentioned. I tend to just look at the original posts on the Official News board, the last of which was January.

    How is the Pyra supply chain holding up during the pandemic?

    Self contained question in the headline really. One for ED if he sees it. I know from my own business that PCB manufacture is especially hit hard. Other components are flowing but with big backlogs of orders. Given the advanced state of the Pyra manufacturing and stock, what effect will the...

    Running Windows software on ARM with Wine

    https://www.osnews.com/story/30880/Running_Windows_software_on_ARM_with_Wine An interesting article about a guide written for running Windows programs on ARM. I also thought it worth pointing Notaz's efforts being reported.
