Good news for all those waiting for and dev kits - They are available the the Pine Store (store.pine64.org).

NB. The PineTime now ships with @codingfield's FOSS InfiniTime firmware!

The Pine Store is online again as of a few hours ago. Sorry for the confusion, we had some miscommunication last night.

We are upgrading the cluster to make it more reliable and easier to maintain remotely.

Scheduled downtime 12 Sept. at 11 AM CET (5/6AM CDT/EDT).

Services will be offline no longer than 5hrs.

Pine Store will remain operational.

New Pine Store (WIP pictures) with more payment options (Stripe) being built. We are, however, struggling with crypto payments (@BTCPayServer), since we haven't received a response from
Bitstamp as of today. We won't use Kraken - their form requires disclosure of private info.

Happy 25th birthday to Windows 95!

It's not Linux or FOSS of any kind, but its design metaphors heavily influenced nearly every desktop interface to come after.

It (or one of its later W9x descendants) were also the first OS for a large number of people, including the person writing this toot 😊.
