I haven't checked in a while. WOW! Far less support than I expected.  Guess people would rather complain about governments listening in than actually supporting a project that does something about it.

OK Situation Update:

Got on live chat with Barns and Noble and while they couldn't process it over chat I was given a referral number to put in and call to arrange on hardware replacement.

New problem. My nook dies seconds after being unplugged. Only thing I can think would be the cause is going from a mid March version of cm11 nightly to latest.

Any ideas on how to fix?

So far reverted back to Stock (2.2.0) and the bug still persists. However before it would let me do anything it registered as completely dead. So I'm leaving it sit for a few hours in hopes that its just a near dead battery that needs to sit.

I note the stock battery indicator puts it at a little over half charge an it still goes insta dead on unplug.

Idea, probably a dumb one but an idea.

take a dreamcast shell. Gut the the thing. Put in a dvd drive that will work with a lid design.

Now those new ram slot raspies open up a few possibilities if you can get a support board made to do this. Four usb connectors up front to line up with the controller ports, you'd have to mod the modem thing so it could house eathernet. Stick wifi in there too because why not. And in the serial cable in the back like the real hardware has and vga out since any decent tv now has vga.

Pity there's likely no chance a raspi can emulate dreamcast. I suppose if you could program for two of them to share the load it could. But the point is more livingroom friendly design with a dvd drive and front facing usb. Now if you put an IR sensor up front for a remote that would be awesome but whatever. It'd cost a fuckton if not in money then in design time and work.

And have. It boot up into xbmc and have that serve as your launchpad for dvd, youtube/screw attack/whatever as well as your emulators.

But if you could get it to play actual dreamcast games at regular speed that would be nifty.

Bonus points for having the dreamcast bootup logo thing

Oh my god, Oklahoma wants to "secdee" from the union if Cosmos is not cancelled...

You know, at this point, I think it'd be a great idea for any state that wants to "Secdee" to go ahead and do so.

Raspberry Pi Compute Module first look!
http://www.adafruit.com/blog/2014/04/11/first-look-raspberry-pi-compute-module-photo-gallery-raspberrypi-raspberry_pi/

The compute module contains the guts of a Raspberry Pi (the BCM2835 processor and 512Mbyte of RAM) as well as a 4Gbyte eMMC Flash device (which is the equivalent of the SD card in the Pi). This is all integrated on to a small 67.6x30mm board which fits into a standard DDR2 SODIMM connector (the same type of connector as used for laptop memory*). The Flash memory is connected directly to the processor on the board, but the remaining processor interfaces are available to the user via the connector pins. You get the full flexibility of the BCM2835 SoC (which means that many more GPIOs and interfaces are available as compared to the Raspberry Pi), and designing the module into a custom system should be relatively straightforward as we’ve put all the tricky bits onto the module itself.

Pity they're going out of business at the end of March. In spite of always being busy they don't meet the corporate model for profitability. Leaves us with Walmart basically.
