  • Thanks for posting. this is really quite cool.
  • They let their beards grow whilst building the machine. Uh-oh! real programmers don't work 9 to 5, except possibly the ones at night. real programmers programs don't work first time, but they can usually be patched up in, only a few, 30 hour debug…
  • i want one!
  • a bit expensive
  • Tindie Interesting site. thanks. I wondered if they have a calculator keyboard; something like a 4 banger layout with a few extra blank keys for the arduino or rPI. Would make an interesting calculator project. Enigma I'm not particularly impress…

  • made a fix. try now.
  • No. I've not seen the problem on my devices
  • Yes, i do not buy those from the well known company anymore either. Some reviews I've seen showed them to be the worst of all, including the cheap, pound shop ones. You'll notice that batteries have a sell-by date, which is not that far into the fu…

  • odd indeed. I could move these scripts locally, which would fix this.
  • can the battery be swapped with another. if not this is really bad design. On batteries; has anyone else noticed that non-rechargeable batteries also discharge at an alarming rate?
