On Grant Sinclair's website (his surname will be familiar to some of you - he's the nephew of Clive Sinclair, the inventor of the ZX Spectrum/Timex home computers), a new handheld is available for preorder, the POCO Zero:

It's a compact handheld with a touchscreen, two analog joysticks and buttons, though no physical keyboard. It is based on the Raspberry Pi Zero, and in true Sinclair fashion it is available both as a self-assembly kit and a fully-assembled unit. According to the website, it will be available in a couple of months (Q3 2017).

I have done a small tweak to the forum's configuration and raised the thumbnails' size of any attached picture from 100x100 to 400x400, see an example here:


This will only affect all the attached images starting from today. Let me know if this new size works for you.

An interview with 0x4015 has been published on the "Voice of 6 Octaves" blog. 0x4015 is a Japanese democoder who has won the 4K PC intro competition at the Revision demo party this spring, with his Final Stage intro. "This created a buzz among Japanese people in the community, because this was the first time that Japanese demoscener had won at Revision, the largest demoscene party held on this planet." He uses an SL-C1000 to code his 4k demos, including Final Stage. "Iím using this to code 4K intro in a commuter train. With this machine, I can code even if the train is fully packed", says 0x4015.

I'd like to find a cable for serial debugging for my Akita, to be connected on the user port on the rear. There are some different user port cables around, most of them are USB ones, but I don't know which ones can be used for serial debugging (I'm thinking especially for kexecboot debugging). The only one that I have been told to work is the CE-170TS, which is very difficult to find:


I have never been able to find one on the japanese Auction site, while many other cables are usually sold there:

CE-175TU: https://buyee.jp/item/yahoo/auction/j403797862
CE-UC1: https://buyee.jp/item/yahoo/auction/f214752315

Does anybody know if those can be used as well, or if they are only used for syncing, and if they are compatible with an Akita?

This is old news, but I'm posting it since I have not seen any post about this...
Hans de Goede has released a patched kernel with specific fixes for the GPD Win. Now almost all the Win's features are supported under Linux; what's still missing is full USB-C functionality at USB 3.0 speeds, although this is being worked on:


The installation of the new kernel is not straightforward, but all these fixes are going upstream and they should be released with the forthcoming 4.12 kernel release. There's still no release date for this new kernel release, at the moment the most recent preview is 4.12-rc3 which was released a couple of days ago. Ideally, in 2018 all the major Linux distros should include the 4.12 kernel and hence support the Win out of the box.

The Arch Linux Wiki page for the Win has been updated accordingly:
