15.6in laptop casework print started

so after a looong time designing and testing, i began 3d printing the
first parts of the full-sized 15.6in laptop casework a few hours ago.
the longer edges fit just across the diagonal of a 200x200mm mendel90
with 10mm to spare.  the glass is not properly flat but acceptably
enough for the part to grip in each corner.

the middle strut and back edge are done already, and the left-hand
edge is underway.  the back edge needs to be re-done already: the
smaller "test runs" of the past few months were able to iron out the
majority of possible errors however there are still things that need
fine tuning.  most of the fine-tuning i will leave until i have at
least a completed demo which i can assemble around the screen,
keyboard and touchpanel.

Any progress?

Luke, others,

Has there been any recent progress on the crowd-funding campaign or on other 
things? I know there's been a little off-list correspondence about Gratipay, 
which is peripheral to everything else, but for the benefit of anyone 
following the list (either as a subscriber or reading the archives) an update 
might be informative.

From what I've seen from following other lists, there's progress on Linux 
device tree support for various Ingenic JZ-series SoCs, which might have a 
beneficial impact on any jz4755 card that is produced. My own experiments with 
the jz4720/30/40 have stalled somewhat for the time being, but I'll get back 
to them at some point, I imagine.

Paul

Fundraising and campaign status (and wiki authentication)?

I saw a collection of recent updates on the wiki, although the URL in the 
following page is wrong:

http://rhombus-tech.net/fundraising/

Where...

https://crowdsupply.com/eoma68/micro_desktop

...should be...

https://crowdsupply.com/eoma68/micro-desktop

I tried to authenticate myself using various mechanisms in order to edit the 
page, but...

 * OpenID didn't work with the Python Package Index OpenID provider
 * Google have discontinued their OpenID 2.0 support (yes, thanks Google for
   breaking the Web again!)
 * Wordpress claimed that I don't own my own username

Particularly the last one, but also the first one, sounds more like 
communications issues between the wiki and OpenID providers.

I guess I could register, but I thought it might be helpful to indicate a 
possible problem.

Paul

15in laptop casework progress

http://rhombus-tech.net/community_ideas/laptop_15in/news/

getting there.  redesigned the central spar to be more structural
support, to help prevent torsion and to give the back edge part
something to get its teeth into.  a beefy touchpanel holder worked out
well for keeping the front edges in place, so this was replicated at
the back as well.

Re: CHIP - The World's First Nine Dollar Computer by Next Thing Co. — Kickstarter

Hello,

I managed to receive whole 2 private mails asking for details, so I'm
replying to the list, hoping it would be good intermedia between EOMA
project news. As a disclaimer, I don't know deep details of 802.11
standard, so someone with more knowledge may find bunch of things to
correct. Stylistic otherwise is so it was fun for me to write and fun
for you to read. Caveat emptor.

You may laugh, but Windows supports that for ages. My random google-up
shows this for Windows
7,
http://www.firewall.cx/microsoft-knowledgebase/windows-xp-7-8/968-windows-7-access-point.html ,
but I won't be surprised if some WinXP update allowed that either.

Of course, Microsoft did that years after hostapd
https://w1.fi/hostapd/ was available for Linux. Is Microsoft the only
commercial vendor brave enough to offer such feature? Certainly no,
from a certain version of Android "wifi hotspot" is a standard feature.

The technical story which made this possible is:

Once about a time there was cute WiFi industry with its WEP security

The future of EOMA-68

I have seen that are developing several EOMA-68, but all have very little power or are old (like A20, JZ4775 or IC1T). This makes that many people that are looking for powerful hardware is left out of the EOMA-68 market.

What is the future of EOMA-68? Any EOMA-68 with a powerful hardware (like Tegra X1 or Intel Bay-Trail)?
