15in laptop casework progress

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)?

User Replaceable Sockets?

i was wondering about how things like usb sockets and audio and power
barrow jacks could be replaced by users or if not then at least not so
hard to replace? as they do seam to get knackered due to accidents that
happen (partly due to risky living but even then mistakes can and do
happen -it only takes one hard tug of a cable to damage the socket.-).

would it be possible for rhombus-tech products to have a feature like
this sooner than later? or to do it really nicely does it need more ££££
to pay for fancy plastic to click n' replace and therefore with the
challenge of just getting products out there and waiting and seeing how
things go with the first products it's a feature that if it's going to
be implemented, it's one that would be put off for future products?

btw you can get magnet usb plug cables:
