Trivia challenge this weekend (win a Pine64!), help with troubleshooting and more
#1
Hello everyone Smile

I'd like to welcome you all to take part in a trivia challenge event that will take place on June 5th 20.00 CET over at our IRC channel (can also be accessed via this link). The winner will receive a 1GB Pine64  2GB Pine64 with a BT/WIFI module (thanks to tllim!)*. I know that the hour isn't ideal for everyone - especially for you fine folks in the Eastern hemisphere (Asia /Australia)** - I am sorry about this, I am trying to accommodate as many people as possible.  As for the questions asked, they obviously have to remain a mystery, but suffice to say that if you know your computer stuff then you stand a good chance of winning. 

I hope that this event will be fun for everyone and that many of you will stick around afterwards to chat about your ongoing pine projects. Consider this a virtual pine64 get-together party Wink (NB bring your own beer). 

The IRC channel is there for the entire community, and while socialising and casual chatting are the main reasons for its existence,  it also serves as a live-troubleshooting channel. So if you experience issues with your Pine64, and would like additional help after reading though/posting on the forums, do join in and we will try to help you out*** 

The IRC channel is accessible via the forum top barpine64.xyz as well as Lenny's site (which you really should check out as it is full of Pine64 resources). You can, of course, use your IRC client of choice to join in as well; take a look here for complete instructions on how to join.

Hope to see you there on June 5th. 

Take care and good luck with your Pine64 projects!

* If you win just PM me your details and I will buy a 1GB board from the store and ship it to your address I will forward your shipping infor to tllim Smile 
** if there will be enough interest in this sort of community event then I will organise another one and we can settle on a date and time that would suit more people
*** don't get discouraged if we don't answer straight away - while there are usually ~20 of us online, most of us are occupied. It may take a little while before we get back to you so stay put and have some patience.

How are you able to give away free products when people like me haven't even received their initial product from the Kickstarter investments?

You're still waiting because you got extra accessories. The base boards (and the wireless module, i assume) are in pretty decent availability now.

Also, happy to say that I've developed the trivia system for this contest! I'm probably the person to yell at if the bot that will be running everything happens to cheat you out of some nice prizes.  Confused

I developed the bot that will run the trivia, not the questions themselves. Wink

Regardless, I probably won't participate because I do have to load the questions into the bot.
