And then, people here who held off bidding against me want some of them, decreasing my eink array even more. Perhaps I could do 7x7 or 7x7, but that just looks ugly in hexadecimal.
For those who wanted one of the K3s from my first batch of 40, we can discuss my costs in a PM (or you can calculate them from the ebay price plus shipping). I have not paid for the second batch of 40 yet, and they have not shipped. The vendor told me to wait until I tested the first batch. I still have K4 and K5 demos to test too...
I now have 12 K3s with broken screens. I may try to "remote control" them with a VNC server. There is an X11 VNC server we can download in a Dev Corner thread from seaniko7. I want a native mode VNC server though.
EDIT: Instead of VNC, I may just use synergy, but I would need the new mouse cursor support that was just added to the K5 by twobob. The goals are to make as much stuff as possible work on as many kindle eink models as possible. Twobob has been very busy. Give him some karma! (Of course, I like karma too!).
And by the way, we now have working USB OTG on the K4, so some USB devices can be used when plugged into the kindle. We still need a keyboard and mouse driver though. Other kindle models will be supported soon.

(shakes head) I think yer all just a little crazy, but I enjoyed reading the thread. Congrats on the auctions that worked out, and condolences on the ones you lost.
Re sniping assists, I always used to sit there with a PST clock in one corner of my screen and my bid poised waiting for the last click, but the stress got a little high, and my hand would cramp. :-D From there, I used bidnip. I don't know if they have different rates for BIG ticket auctions, but for normal stuff, I'm pretty sure it's still... wow. I guess inflation strikes everywhere. They're currently selling a 10 snipe package for $6.99 US. Pretty sure the last time I bought some they were $0.25 a piece. (shrugs)

I ordered one, it will arrive next week, hopefully in good shape
I got the package. It is shipped with original box, but no other protection. This one came intact, and the DXG is in excellent shape. Perfect screen, almost no scratch on body (I caused several ones while removing the sticky stuff). I will spend sometime over the holidays to flash it
Too bad they are now bidding it all the way to $150+ for a demo unit. Otherwise I will want to get more.
Now the price is around $50!
