#qi-hardware IRC log for Sunday, 2015-10-11

rjeffriesthis previously somewhat active channel has apparently gone dormant.13:13
wpwrakyeah, only occasional bursts of activity14:29
ysionneauIt seems even the statistics department has gone missing!14:51
wpwrakah yes, that got too boring and i ran out of synonyms for "no much happened"14:55
ysionneauhow is your neo900 thing going on?14:56
wpwrakwe're slowly inching towards the next prototype14:57
wpwrakalas, with a bit of a detour, as paypal has chosen to de facto freeze ("dynamic reserve") a large part of the project's funds14:57
wpwrakso this has to be resolved first14:57
wpwraksee here for details: http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?p=1484864#post148486414:59
ysionneauoh ok14:59
ysionneauwow, PP situation seems rather shitty15:01
wpwrakyes, it's ugly15:02
wpwrakat openmoko we didn't dare to touch paypal, due to such stories. but in later years, you didn't hear so much about issues of this kind.15:03
ysionneaulast shitty stuff I heard about PP was them closing wikileaks account15:04
ysionneaubut that was more a political issue15:04
wpwrakof course, there is the saying that you don't have to be afraid of the things you read about in the press but of those that have become so common that the press doesn't mention them anymore15:04
ysionneaubut though it illustrates very well that they have pretty much the "power" and can use it to screw with you15:04
ysionneauthat's a bit true yes15:04
rjeffriesPayPal will come around. There is no doubt Neo900 project is legit.17:30
larscwell, there is no guarantee that it will deliver17:50
ysionneauwpwrak is the guarantee :p18:00
wpwrakthe problem isn't whether the project is legit or not, but what paypal's rules make of it. i.e., both crowdfunding and pre-selling are "legit", but paypal choose to screw (at least) with one18:01
wpwrakysionneau: your boundless confidence honors and humbles me ;-)18:01
