Moderately good ideas, made worse by bad execution: My partner wanted to coat the surface of a wooden box with transparent acrylic resin (as a test run for a different project), and I thought I'd protect the borders with paper tape, to so there's less overflow.
Only the paper has now bonded with acrylic and wood, and is very hard to remove...
*sigh* Now that makes me nostalgic for them time when I was using my Pandora every day. I mean it's still viable for many things even now, despite the small screen, old CPU, and 512MB RAM.
What it would need is a web browser that works with the limitations of the platform in mind. Not that there is any, but even if there was - SuperZaxxon is an ancient OpenEmbedded base system running on a 3.2 kernel souped up with non-portable hardware drivers.
Yeah, still keeping on to my Pyra preorder...

Oh look, there's my original OpenPandora unboxing photos (2011). I later traded in that unit for a Rebirth upgrade, after Open Pandora Ltd had collapsed and EvilDragon had taken over to rescue what was left of the effort.
I've had high hopes that EDs experience with that would make the Pyra project go much more smooth, but it seems his financial constraints have resulted in choosing unreliable suppliers for some of the critical parts, the cases in particular. Like a year of delay just for those?
Ok, this thing is on the public internet? Well, at least they don't let me use it as a redirect service...
