  1. When your 8-Bit computer behaves more like an Amiga! [emoji106][emoji973]️
  2. Thanks for cheering along! Good point about Ham. Somehow that slipped through the quality control. I mustn't be so ham fisted! I may well get a license. I need to get a good antenna first, ideally upward pointing.
  3. Welcome Damian. Thank you for your kind words! Means a lot [emoji106][emoji973]️ Your logo looks really great too!
  4. If you enjoy HAM I hope you saw my latest video about the ISS! [emoji6] Welcome to the group! Your friend in retro, Perifractic http://youtube.com/perifractic
  5. Very nice! But you got the date a year late. Probably [emoji39]
  6. Nice! If you can have it recognize a mouse click as well as any key to continue, it will also work fully with the web emulator on mobile screens where tapping the screen simulates a click. Keep it up!
  7. I would agree that it seems to be an issue with clear type. I tested on Mac and Android devices. Increasing the font size may be a solution but we chose the font size for a reason. I'm not sure we want it any bigger as it is already somewhat large and would look overly large. if this was a issue that had been reported more than this one time in the past (nearly a) year including the website beta, that would be different. I will also add that it looks great on mobile, and I'm sure the same goes for Apple phones. I would propose as a solution increasingly your browser zoom by one notch, or disabling clear type, or living with this very small issue in the big scheme of things, or even changing the username to SixtySix [emoji4]
  8. Thank you for the feedback. I've had a look at this with page fully zoomed out and also zoomed in to your screen name I'm sorry but on my two devices I really cannot see an issue. Even if it is an issue on some resolutions/devices, as fixing this would be a lot of work (changing characters within a web standard font), which equates to time and expense, is not something we can prioritize right now. Thank you for your understanding.
  9. Thank you for your kind words guys! Means a lot [emoji106][emoji973]️ Puppyfractic sends her regards also.
  10. Thanks Gavin! Great work on the demo too! [emoji106][emoji973]️
  11. Here is Adrian's video about the troubleshooting:
  12. No problem! I'm glad my clarification of what goes on behind the scenes was useful.
  13. Because it isn't as simple as typing "just put a rocker switch". Every change we make from stock on the perfect case that we finally found, adds thousands of dollars. It also changes the design aesthetic. Can you find a rocker switch that sits at a diagonal slanted angle with a skewed top and bottom? This is a huge conversation that is not one we really need to have at this late stage. The best thing you can do is trust that every single tiny decision that we have made is in the best interests of delivering a product faster and better value than if we went with the alternate decision [emoji106][emoji973]️
  14. Was just coming here to post it but you beat me to it
  15. Yes that will likely be in David's video if not one by Adrian.
  16. Once we have prototype 3 and we can lock down what is changed that will happen pretty quick. No official timeframe [emoji6]
  17. Please enjoy this mini update from @Kevin Williams about the second prototype. A fuller update will follow from David on YouTube soon (when we have a working prototype #3). Happy new year Commandos!
  18. Sorry there's no serial port.
  19. Thank you for taking the positive optimistic route. You weren't far off at all. [emoji106][emoji973]️
  20. Not sure how far back you're quoting but the X16 version is very much happening and David can't wait to start. It's true that it didn't make much sense to start writing the port while we were having problems with the prototype (to be expected with any project) but he's only waiting for feature lock so he doesn't have to write it twice. The rest of what you say is hearsay and not particularly helpful, nor accurate. We're already discussing his "Part 3" video that he's making. I realize speculation can occur when we don't design the entire computer in the open, but as I say to others, please remember how unprecedented the level of access we have given is. Have you ever seen this openness before in any major project, before crowdfunding even starts? To summarize, Pet Robots is happening, David's next video is being planned, and there's nothing more to it really. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
