Well, I got through some of it. But now it's late (early?), so I'll have to wait until tomorrow.

crypto is short for "cryptography"

if you want a shorter word for "cryptocurrency", the word you are looking for is "ponzi"

@baldur I'm glad then that my toots today were about gardening and a summary of experiences with PineTime. The latter must have pretty much made up those remaining 10% 😜

@FiXato They offer bigger ones, but I don't think I need that for what's currently a single user. But they don't let you tweak post size.

@FiXato I have, but I don't want to host it myself. On masto.host it seems I don't have that choice. It's a compromise that I am living with for now.

Alright, I'm done.

Hope someone finds this useful, and I may get back to this topic once in a while.

@PINE64 and maybe that's also not quite the right choice. But the current method of having an open device that you can only haphazardly connect to a debug adaptor and not to the charging base at the same time is a little more cumbersome for getting started than strictly necessary, I feel.

I suppose more seasoned embedded developers will shrug this off.

@PINE64 In the end, I'm vaguely hopeful that someone will pick up on this thread and lower the barrier to development a little OR I'll find time to potter around with it myself. But until then, I guess I will play around with the device very slowly.

As a last side note, it would have been nice if the dev kit had a charging base capable of being used as a debug bridge. I understand that would have to include ST-LINK hardware and likely double the price point or thereabouts.
