    Using Pandora as primary device?

    [/lurkmode] I've been neglecting my Pandora, kaede, for a while now. I just haven't had the time since I started working 30 hours and full-time courses. She had been relegated to note-taking duty in class. It is perhaps fortunate, then, that I should find myself without a desktop computer for...

    ARGH. Vent thread.

    </lurkmode> Hi, everyone. Long time, no see. I'm going to rant a little, because I saw this in another thread, and it reminded me of my shitty weekend: Christ, Craig. You had someone steal YOUR phone too? I'm beginning to lose my faith in humanity. Mine was stolen from the rail station on...

    Beaming out the Audiophile Signal again.

    I am looking for a decent 2.1 system for my new gaming/media rig. If you know of a product that will satisfy the following conditions please drop your suggestions in the box and give your reasons. I want to keep it under 100 USD, but if it's a really really good system I might be able to...

    Yet Another VoIP Thread (halp!)

    I did use the search function, guys, I really did, but I'm stuck in a rut here. I cannot get VoIP working. I tried the Linphone PND, and also spent 2 hours installing a debian extend and installing ekiga in that and getting the X server working only to have it crash with ALSA saying something...

    Please help me make my library work!

    I'm trying to make my own library of commonly (re)written functions and classes for my own projects to share, so that I don't need to waste my time re-creating them. I don't want to just copy-paste them between my projects; ideally I'd use a shared library, but a static one will do. The...

    [SOLVED] Who has clock issues?

    Hello friends, it has been a while. Save for the occasional read-only visit (*lurk lurk* :ph34r: ) I have been neglecting the Pandora scene for about a month on and off, due to the pains of life outside Eden and some annoying family issues (just money, nothing serious). I am saddened to...

    Equivalent to SysRq REISUB?

    The (alt)-SysRq-REISUB combination is my best friend on my laptop when things hang. On the Pandora, there is no SysRq key, and so there is no REISUB. REISUB is important because it cleans everything up and syncs/unmounts filesystems before restarting. Does the Pandora's reset function do...

    Multiplayer emulation?

    Is there a guide, wiki page, thread, blog post or other resource dedicated to the topic of multiplayer emulation on the Pandora? In particular, I'm wondering how to rig up SNES9x4P to use a second controller. Most turn-based games have a "swap" mode where two players share one controller, but...

    My Pandora review/blog

    At this point, we have a bunch of reviews on the Pandora, but I thought I'd take it a step further... I'll be posting occasionally on this new blog about the various adventures and misadventures I have with my Pandora. Currently there's an initial review up that I spent about three hours...

    Gearing up for tomorrow

    Are there any suggestions for what I should absolutely, positively do first with my new Pandora (as in, before I turn it on or immediately before doing anything normal with it)? I'm planning to take it out of the box, plug it in, wait 10 minutes, put in my SD cards, turn it on, and proceed to...

    Adult Games

    Someone, somewhere, is going to realise someday (just like I did after watching the oddly sexual Techmoan video) that the Pandora's nubs are incredibly well-placed for a very immature yet very innovative mammary simulation minigame. Though the example is rather silly, I'm being 100% serious...

    Hitler on fire?

    Customs/import fees?

    Hey guys, I searched the forums and found no information on US import fees for the Pandora. Are customs going to call me up and say, "Hey, you owe us 500 USD for your package before we'll release it, best be paying or we'll be playing"? I'm surprised I haven't seen a thread of this sort...

    Laptop power connector issues

    Hey guys-- I've been having problems with my power cord for my laptop. Recently (within the past 6 months) i've noticed a flicker in the screen. I first traced it to something to do with power; the backlight goes on/off depending on whether I'm plugged in or not. I looked closely at the...

    Breakout box

    Recently, with the exciting news of the EXT connectors, I've rekindled my interest in using the Pandora's serial port capabilities (I originally thought of it during my Systems Programming course earlier this year). I know there is an effort to construct custom-made cables, but does anyone find...

    Audiophilia

    There are those among us (you know who you are) who consider themselves audiophiles. This topic is for you. Whilst reading a recent thread, I saw this quote: I was puzzled. When my grandmother bought a Bose sound system years ago, it filled the room with sound. The sound was really, really...

    Weetabix

    This is completely and entirely unrelated to the Pandora, but this is the "Off Topic" section, and so... I just had Weetabix for the first time. WOW! It's like Shredded Wheat done right. I'd heard of it but I didn't know I could get it here; I found it in the import section when I was looking...

    Pricing of mainstream game consoles

    My roommate at the Institute is somewhat daft when it comes to the technology "scene". To illustrate this: he is a rabid Microsoft supporter (let the holy wars not begin? though I think I'm safe here :) ) and often argues blindly in circular logic how open-source is "immoral", even likening me...

    Gauging interest in chess among the Na'vi

    I am interested in how many of us (besides myself) enjoy a nice game of chess and, by extension, abstract strategy games of any kind. This is relevant because I am interested in programming games, and although chess games have been done, done, and so done that the cow's skeleton is rolling in...

    The recent rise in the locking of threads

    I may be out of place here, but is it just me or is Gruso just picking on Blue Protoman a bit too much? He's taken his shitposts to Off-Topic. Honestly, that's all you can really ask for. I thought the putting Craig's head on different things was rather funny. Gruso, that was a bunch of...
