  1. I think it was just one guy who bought the stock

  3. Well things have moved on! Someone has bought the remaining stock and another has taken up the challenge to put new boards in them “Following on from Graham's post about ex-RCL stock, I'll announce that Hermit Retro Products is working on a replacement board for the Vega+. The board has been designed to fit the existing Vega+ shells and match buttons, ports, etc. plus reuse the original LCD, battery spec and speaker. However, as per other Hermit Retro boards, it'll have a Raspberry Pi Zero W onboard to make modification easier, development quicker and be a bit more transparent. This is a considerable rework from my original "spite" handheld (videos available on the Hermit Retro page) but basing this new board off that old design means there's a solid chance it'll work and be available in the near term. What "near term" means is probaby a few months as there'll be fit issues and tweaking required. Also, I've been looking at the issues with the Vega+ specifically around the shambles that was the buttons. I've identified what I suspect the issue is and we should be able to rectify those issues as well. Graham should be able to supply more details soon. Apologies in advance if this sounds perhaps a bit vague, but we wanted people to know there's maybe something recoverable out of the situation and we're working on it but, since it's basically a labour of love rather than a funded project and there will be bumps in the road, it'll take a bit of time. However, we'll be transparent about progress (or lack thereof). Ideally, we just want a handheld done that'll do Rick's design justice rather than just be lost. In the meantime, here's a render of the in-progress development board. It's mostly laid out and just needs routing. First prototypes hopefully will be ordered in the next few days....“
  4. In my days of refurbing PSP’s, getting a decent replacement battery was a pain in the arse. 1 1/2 - 2 hours if you were lucky. If you are using UMDs, even less. Don’t pay more than a fiver for one, they are all the same
  5. Jelly Any curry over a balti for heat. Vindaloos are for show offs Gin. I’ve tried it but I think it’s vile. liquorice (however you spell it) Turkish Delight
  6. well, maybe a bit for me
  7. Thinking about getting a switch lite for the kids but would I be mad with so many rumours of a new ‘pro’ coming out?! sit tight maybe?
  8. Not gaming related but I picked this up from market place as a fixer upper (not including the ipod!) Denon S52 DAB for nothing. cd player is knackered and I can’t update it for some reason (Ethernet or wireless) but it’s good enough for the old iPod. Sounds good as well.
  9. oh look who else has appeared out of the woodwork https://www.therobotreport.com/embodied-acquires-conversational-ai-kami-computing/?fbclid=IwAR3f7vq4dqcOjRBTpnL9NGCiIeonSKDgYLIOjhkxDWCVEuHa91eMo8l-TeU
  10. Nope, she is now apparently a freelance reporter. Fair enough but the fact she’s reporting on an attempt to get money by fraud is ironic
  11. Fear not, Ex director Suzanne Martin is now a fraud investigator against people who raise money for dodgy reasons https://theisleofthanetnews.com/2021/02/10/fake-cancer-con-woman-jailed/ picard.gif
