Most retro products are created for love of the product and released for the purpose of sharing -- the people that you share with are not normally considered "customers".
Well put, and taken Tursi. With my background, I default to marketing terminology, my apologies. True, it's OBVIOUSLY a labor of love with the creators of all these wonderful toys we get to enjoy. With all the time, effort and upfront expenses, it's not a profit motivated endevour. That being said, one can feel like a 'customer' when one orders through a website.
I've been trying figure out how to say that... but I'm too emotionally attached.
I hope "jonecool" finds coding in what I've offered clean and easy to do. And I hope he succeeds.
I've been a bully about this in an effort to influence people away from a feature I don't enjoy. Doing things I don't enjoy is what the day job is for. It is better that I influence instead of just remove it?
If someone takes this feature on, there are a number things that should be fixed (90% of what it emits isn't end-user oriented), but this stands out the most:
--- It doesn't tell you when the PI is powered off... only when it intends to be. I don't know how to solve that.
I understand your feelings M@, after all it's your 'baby' and 'fathers' usually have definate ideas concerning their 'children'.
Even though I'm just a 'user', I see so much potential in that one itsy bitsy teeny weeny display that it could eventually help bring the community closer together.
