I guess we should be thankful that you have decided to show up and
answer to the community for the Parabola hardware still in your possession.

You wanted to leave everything "in order" before you leave, so you
deleted free software repositories, deleted free artwork and vandalized
the wiki of the project, but didn't take the time to arrange for the
shipping of Parabola hardware that you have in your possession.

You have added yourself this donation to the Parabola wiki:


There should be no mystery about it, since it's a public document and
you have declared it as donation. Who has the second BBB? Please
respond. If the donor is not reachable, it doesn't mean a dev gets to
keep it without the community to know about it.

So is any other donation to Parabola. Paid from the donor's pocket. I
fail to see your argument. You need to hand over this Parabola hardware
too. The hardware belongs to Parabola, not Gaming4JC and donations to
non-profit projects are not refundable.

Needs to be returned too. It wasn't Parabola hardware that was broken.
It was your personal hardware. It was your choice to use your personal
converter for Parabola.

Don't forget about this adapter:

It's in the GNUcash file marked with FISL17.

I disagree. You have publicly declared this donation on the wiki:


You need to tell the community who has the BBB, SD cards and the rest of
accessories. If the donor is not reachable, it doesn't mean you can keep
a secret about this donation *you* have declared.

I'm sure this can be arranged. You need tell us the weight and price
estimation for shipping all the Parabola hardware in your possession.

> Regards and waiting for your response as soon as possible,

Our response has always been prompt. You need not to worry about that.
