Maybe next time you might consider...
Add own opinion, as a base to discuss on.

Or just to give people a clue wtf it's about  :D

Maybe next time you might consider posting some...any...info about wtf the links are for, rather than just dumping them on here?

Mouser is finally starting to settle down on Discord and actually using it!

SO....I feel like this post needs bumping to once again let people know it exists!

You can join us via the following link: https://discord.gg/9J4mHfF :D

I now own a webcam so I don't need to connect to Zoom on the PC AND my phone!

Ok time for another zoom meeting this month (Aug); shall we try Aug 13?

If I remember, I'll be there :)

OK, I've moved this topic (since it's the active one) to the correct area, and deleted the other one that was already in this section (but didn't gain any replies for some reason).

Carry on :D

if you wanna go a bit more powerful (a lot more) then you could also try Reaper (they have a free version).
-Stephen66515 (June 12, 2020, 05:18 PM)
I'm not sure you have quite captured the scale of the difference!
 ;D ;D ;D

(but Reaper really is very good)

Ha yeah, it has a much steeper learning curve but once you get to grips with it then it becomes a pleasure to work with.  :D

Audacity is probably the best one with the lowest learning-curve...if you wanna go a bit more powerful (a lot more) then you could also try Reaper (they have a free version).

Does anybody have any recommendations for other "emergency kit" type things (minus fire extinguishers/med-kit/snow stuff)?
-Stephen66515 (June 10, 2020, 02:57 PM)

For the UK?

Decent walking shoes, a decent pocket knife/multitool, a couple of litres of water, and a basic understanding of which way is South.

Then walk East or West, the coast is less than 70 miles away no matter where you are and long before you've walked even 15 miles you'll be falling over a made road, fence, houses, MacDonald's, fish and chip shop, off-licence, etc.
 ;) :P


It's going to need to be used in Europe, too.  Pretty much anywhere from here (NW England) to Calabria (SW Italy).

I believe this would be that thread. From 2016, your mileage may vary.

Heh, turns out that was my thread...

Time to revisit it I think XD

I picked it up when they had their range discounted on Amazon AU, (the 1200A, 1500A, and 2000A were $80, $90, and $100 respectively).

Set up an alert on 🐫^³

The price (£80) seems great for what it is.  I have it on my list though as we won't be getting the new car till the end of next month so I don't need it until then.

Picked up a portable car jump starter, (1500A peak), recently ... now I have to wait for the battery to die to test it.  In the meantime it can act as a portable battery pack with QC3.0.

Be interested to try this on my Landcruiser, only a 3.4l diesel but of the old indirect injection glow-plug variety, (20:1 compression ratio), not the more modern common rail direct injection versions ... unfortunately the battery doesn't want to die :-\

Amazon [AU]

Also a set of Tronsmart Spunky Beat TWS earbuds

Well...that's bloody useful.

Just added it to my purchase list!

Thanks!

JamesEs, that's an awesome view -- looks like a painting!
zxcbvn, i've been noticing more large birds in the city where I am - almost as if they are coming back to reclaim their territory from the humans!

It's something we have noticed here too.  There seems to be a LOT more birdsong at all hours of the day.  It's pretty nice!

Thanks. Was there. Seriously doubt anything will be reimbursed as per their policy and the fact that they can't get the money from a company that is bankrupt. Still submitted though.

Worst they can say is no.  I'm hearing quite a few people succeeded with refunds though.

Sadly I can not remember who I paid. I think mine was direct.

Unless you paid in during Kickstarter, it will have been through XSolla (They are the only payment method they allowed) - even if you used Paypal...it went through XSolla ^_^

Check your emails for a receipt :)

Yep, the CEO blindsided the devs and just shut everything down with no warning. Devs were told on the Monday and had to clear everything out by Tuesday. 

The entire community is in uproar and there is a dedicated Discord setup for a class-action law-suit.

Pretty annoyed about it all tbh.

 
From the sites page:
https://chroniclesof...lyria-Into-the-Abyss

Youtube commentary:
https://www.youtube..../watch?v=bfiibVaEMeY

The main discussion about a lawsuit is being done on the Discord channel. I already filed with the Washington state AG's office. I am not expecting a return on what I spent but I would like to see the guy go to jail. He horribly mismanaged the money and six weeks ago had another land sale to gather up more money before saying it is all done a week ago. So he knew they were shutting down and still was asking for money through kickstarter.

I only lost a couple hundred. Others have lost 5-20k and more.

If you purchased through XSolla, request a refund.  People have been given refunds going back around 600 days.  I've applied for mine :)
