    Day of the Pandora is approaching.

    Wow, interesting reads here.  I've been gone a long time, but several years ago I spent a lot of time on the old GP2X boards.  Came back by for a trip down memory lane, and to see what became of everything. I had no idea of the later Craig scandals, as I bailed out of the OpenPandora scene not...

    Anyone Else Lost Interest?

    I wouldn't say that I've lost interest, however my interest has cooled somewhat. I just realized that it's been about a year since I started following this project closely, but for me a lot has changed in the past few months. Internet has been blocked at work, cutting me off from my primary...

    Where Is My £200 Handheld?

    We've all been waiting quite a while. I even had to make the tough choice to give up my preorder when my car needed a new engine, and there was a nice $300 gap between the money I needed and the money I actually had. :( To cope with this, I quit reading the forums for a few months, got...

    Still Time For An Easter Egg...

    :lol: :lol: :lol: I'm betting on a forum joke somewhere. Maybe a Hellollo in the code? :)

    When I Actually Have The Pandora In My Hands...

    I think I might do an unboxing video to make fun of my mac loving friends. "ooh, the box is a lovely shade of generic industrial brown cardboard. so nice!" :lol: :lol: :lol:

    If Given The Choice, Would You Want Pandora With Beta Or Release Os?

    I realize the impact that bad software could have on some reviews, but even so I would love to watch the entire thing grow. :) I got into the GP2X at the start of the mk II era, so I missed out on a lot of the early development, but there was still a lot of great improvement to look forward...

    Half The Protoype Case

    Perhaps now is the time to fill with clear plastic and make use of the infamous KP_BL pad on the board? :lol: I kid, I kid. But I do confess to liking the shiny rings of the original nubs, despite my normal dislike for flashy, cool looking things.

    Further Problems?

    :lol: :lol: :lol: Hey, I might not even be on this forum if it hadn't been for the Xbox. Long story short, I'd given up on gaming when the Xbox came along. Started up again and loved it. Eventually I ended up on Lik-Sang (RIP) looking for an adapter to use my Xbox controller on a PS2, and...

    Little Christmas Update

    Michigan. I ended up getting my power back yesterday afternoon, about 36 hours ahead of schedule. Can't complain there. It was kind of fun though, wrapped in a blanket, burning wood for heat, and having a reason to play my neglected GPA SP for the first time in months. Really made me wish...

    I like the Xbox layout as well, but as has been discussed in the past, nothing is stopping us from changing the layout ourselves in software, or even rearranging the physical layout of the buttons. I don't know if I'll be going that far, but I hope and plan to remap the buttons to the...

    How Long Before The Pandora Becomes "nothing Special"?

    Well that's good to know! I was pretty certain that it was just "the way it is" but without prior experience of my own, I had no way of knowing for sure. Like everyone else, I'm really looking forward to our new toy, and the thought of someone or someones deliberately impeding progress was...
