I've got a question that I'm probably going to regret asking. Not sure if this belongs here, on the firmware update thread : https://www.oesf.org/forum/index.php?showtopic=36044, on the thread that opened the scary DigiTime can of worms : https://www.oesf.org/forum/index.php?showtopic=36031, or in the rubbish bin.
If the OTA upgrade tool is now broken, (I've got a spinning circle that's about as responsive as Windows10), looking at a site that effectively doesn't exist, (for good reason, following The Chronicles of Ninji, (Thanks Ninji for investigation, Daniel W for raising the subject here, all others involved, and Planet for taking some prelim action)), we need a new update site or tool. But if the update tool to fix the update tool is broken, how do you fix that?
How can our Cosmos that don't 'know' this, download an OTA update to change the OTA update details, isn't that a chicken and egg thing. How do you fix the thing, if the thing that needs fixing is the thing fixer? If you see what I mean.
Or will we be maybe given a browser link to an alternative service to download a one time fix for the download tool, or to download a new download tool? Or will we need to do some other type of manual update? Or am I missing something?
Apologies if this seems like a dumb question, I'm just an Electrical Engineer with a groovy mobile. Answers in crayon on A3 paper please. smile.gif
Thanks again to Ninji for all your sterling work to keep us sleeping safe and sound with our Planet devices. I read your articles end to end a couple of times and got about one word in every three, but from what I understand in basic principles, and from the responses of other OESF members, I truly appreciate the work you have done. The way you have given up your free time and expertise 'for fun' for the good of us all is so very refreshing to a cynical old fart like myself.

Fellow Planetarians,
Is anybody else here waiting in New Zealand for their Cosmo?
I (stupidly) locked myself out of my Indiegogo account, and also (stupidly) closed what I think may be the associated contact email address. I'm ashamed to admit that both incidents, whilst otherwise unrelated, probably involved beer.
So now it's dawned on me that I've got no tracking details and I'm expecting my Cosmo will be held at Auckland by the courier until I pay the import taxes, and I may not receive notification from the courier, unless I get a call or a card through the door rather than an email to nowhere.
I tried Indiegogo, I don't want to bother Planet when they've got their hands full, I thought I might contact the courier. Does anyone know which courier they are using in NZ?
Thanks in advance,
MC

Hi,
Is there anyway to change the displayed date format on this site, I canĀ“t find anything in "my controls", etc.
Ta,
