As soon as I have exact specs on the hardware, and I mean exact, I can start on the OS.  I just need to make the emulator, then I can port the KnightKernel and start working on the OTCalc-specific code.

Doubt it. I do believe we decided that the screen would be too hard. I also need to collect and publish the otarm results.

Yeah the screen size might be an issue, although I wonder why it would be when Casio uses a weird screen size for their new calc as well X.x

Apparently a screen of that size is impossible to find.

If I get specs on hardware as well as a programming environment to create the programming for this, I can start writing code for a OT-BASIC programming language :)

If i ever get exact specs ill tell you right away. I think the project got stuck because we are doing too much at once. Mostly because we want to do two versions. Id say we stick with the ez80/propellor version. My question would be, anyone still interested? If so we need to make a plan of action, which peices do we have already, which ones to we still need to decide on, when will we have decided on them etc...
Eventually we will also need a merketeer plan. Personally I think its best if we keep this low profile for as long as possible and than at almost the exact same time release a storm of these things. Tweet about it, digg it, facebook it, i dunno, anything..
Bla....getting too far ahead here...ehr werre was I?

EDIT by DJ: Fixed your post because it was showing up inside Xeda's quote. :P

Hey, matthias, I think you posted your post inside the quote.  I could fix it, but I'm not a moderator. :P

Done.

Also I think the project stalled because Alberthrocks, the main leader, got busy with school, then the same happened with graph. From now on OTCalc is only being worked on during Summer.

I am teh graph.  And I'm writing sh3 compilers atm, so yeah.  I can work on it in college much easier, though, so it shouldn't be a problem.

Ah ok, but yeah for now I think it can't really progress as fast until all project members have all the free time they need again.
