might have ordered a second one to my sisters place. Whenever I'll be there the next time, I can then take that one apart and hopefully have working electronics in that one. Oh and it's missing a leg, have to replace that :D

Took it to @xHain_hackspace and tore it apart. The voltages are all good, no short detected - seems it really is just dead :(

Just received a 2.7" sharp memory with 400 x 240 pixels. It just looks so nice! It's the same that's used in the playdate. I've recently seen it being used on the "Franky" by sqfmi on the bird side.

What's the situation with the favourite star - when compared with twitter, is it more a like or rather to be seen a bookmark?
