Hi Mike, Thanks. This will take a bit, I'm in talks to get a new job soon, which will put extra money in my pocket. Then I may be able to get a handful of these perhaps. Do you still keep tabs on Shivam, Mars, Brian, and Wenyan? Are they still interested in riscv64 after the initial port with yours and Dales guidance? I think I paid something like 30 EUR for a Mango Pi from AliExpress buying 4 would work but I can only do this when I have secured the job.
