@maki The factory is closed on weekends, but the HK warehouse, courier to Europe, customs and PC warehouse are all open on weekends and almost all European and American couriers sort and deliver on Saturdays as well.

After all, Thank God Planet Computers have taken enough time for QC and QC have been wide enough, that they spotted flaws at end of the assembly line. Though it means that my relatively rare combination (Fin/Swe) is still "placed" on IndieGoGo.


Same here. Also glad that Brexit got delayed at least by a few months and no complications came from that...

Off topic as far as IGG goes, yes, but valid as a kind of update, I'd say, and probably we're all paying a bit extra attention to this thread anyway, so:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bJvGqZJUV5M
features Mr. Mrsic-Flogel and Davide Guidi, recorded yesterday (Nov 26), it seems, and has some up-to-date info in it.

Of the 4000 first Cosmos, around 3100 seems to be crowdfunding backer devices, while the rest are for retail. However, as all Cosmos (in this production run) with a particular keyboard layout are made in one go, backers with the least common layouts, will, essentially, have to wait until all 4000 units have been made. It seems they were somewhere around 75% done yesterday, so, hopefully, a few more percents done today. And oh, there's a "Linux Technical Preview", in the video as well...

Glad to see things are moving forward with other OSes. They do mention working with community on it, is it about the rooting the cosmo thread on this forum, or is there another cosmo/pc forum or irc or something like that (hopefully not discord)?

Oh good. It's a superb piece of kit, but I'm hoping for an update on the bugs. Ideally some Codi power fixes and sorting out the always-on keyboard backlight.

24h is not a battery life I'm used to. The Gemini went for a whole weekend, the Galaxy Relay S lasted about the same, the Nokia E90, 9500, and 9210 all went about a week between charges.

Have you tried turning off the backlight? Press Fn-shift-b until the keyboard lights go off.

You were doing well with the gemini getting an entire weekend. I could only do that if I left it alone and used it as a phone only (ie. no playing). A lot of the old nokias used to last a long time. Even moderately new ones like the pureview 808 only used to need charging every 2 days - and it had a tiny battery in comparison with the gemini/cosmo.

Of course. But it would be *really* helpful if it would switch off and on with the main display backlight. Having them separate means fumbling around in the dark trying to get the F-S-N right without accidentally doing something you don't want to. It isn't a big problem, admittedly.

It did require some care, yeah. But I'd reliably get 1900 Friday until 0930 Monday morning with anything around 20% battery left.

And now the update is "live" (actually two):
https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/cosmo-co...59#/updates/all

So for us "Nordics", it's bad news, but hopefully we will still get it before Christmas...

There might be one letter 'y' missing on update

"we are still hopeful... ....before Christmas / Jul'y'"

So yes, bad news for us Nordics... So in best case scenario it's before Christmas and worst case scenario it's before July...

Correct, it does. It's the same word as the "Yule" in some English Christmas songs. It's Joulu in Finnish, so Maki knows too, but given the circumstances, a little humor is perhaps the best we can do, while waiting for all of the Cosmos to come around... (yes, feeble pun intended).

Yes, only that way we survive through this waiting.

I don't believe it's worst case case scenario, but not best case scenario either, something between those two.

Now with this new approach of deadlines, Planet have plenty of time to fulfill this smile.gif
