    Farewell And All The Best, Pandorians. :)

    Well, I think that the time has finally come to say goodbye. There has unfortunately been a rising tide of certain behaviours around here - particularly this year - that I no longer wish to deal with in what is, in reality, my leisure time. Some of these behaviours have negatively impacted my...

    Microsoft removes "Big Boobs" hex-string

    The BBC is reporting that a hexadecimal string, 0xB16B00B5, has been removed from Microsoft software. Apparently they're embarrassed about it, and dealt with it swiftly after it came to light on the Linux kernel mailing list. The original version used the equally unflattering string, 0xB00B135...

    Just a little FYI about the scammer from earlier, guys!

    I'm aware that earlier, we had a romance-scammer using two accounts to send out PMs to people. Thankyou, all of you, for the reports that you've sent. This topic is just to let you all know that it's been dealt with, and that both accounts have been eliminated (from what I can see, it looks...

    PEGI ratings become the legally-enforced standard for games in UK on July 30th

    I just heard the news that, in the UK, PEGI ratings will be the official, legally-enforcable game age ratings standard from July 30th, and I really have to express my extreme disappointment. I've ranted at length about PEGI's oddball policies before, of course, but not about this particular...

    Petit Computer

    I just stumbled across this, and figured that I'd post it here just in case anyone else finds it interesting. It's a BASIC coding tool for the Nintendo DSi, which is also usable on the 3DS in DSi-mode. A segment from the press release says the following about its capabilities; Whilst it's...

    Through the Dragon's Eye

    I'm sure that all British folks of a certain age remember when Look and Read: Through the Dragon's Eye was first broadcast. And re-broadcast over the course of many years afterwards. (For those unfamiliar with it, it was an educational TV series in the form of an epic fantasy tale done on a...

    THQ sacks San Diego team during E3; Hopes news will be buried

    News of this appalling piece of behaviour just reached my ears: THQ sacked its San Diego team today, seemingly hoping that the news would be overlooked as a result of lots of E3 news that's currently showing up. I don't think I'd want to work for an employer that handles things like this in...

    MaKey MaKey - Bananas as pianos and Play Doh as video game controllers? No problem!

    I just stumbled across this Kickstarter campaign, and thought that it was pretty neat, so I'm sharing it here. It's a device called "MaKey MaKey", which acts as a standard USB Human Interface Device (and runs on top of an Arduino, and can thus be customised if you're already familiar with...

    wwwtxt.org

    I was directed to the website wwwtxt.org a little while ago, and figured that I'd share it here. It's a site that features little snippets of preserved text from the "electronic frontier"-type days of the internet, which is defined by the site as being between circa 1988 to 1994. It's pretty...

    Heads-up for PayPal users: Possible info leak?

    For anyone who uses PayPal (sadly a necessary evil, in a lot of cases), or who has friends or relatives who do, I just wanted to post a heads-up. I received a pretty blatant phishing e-mail earlier, from the blatantly fake address of "service@paypall.com", and with a bullshit reason for...

    The Official Stereoscopic Photography and Artwork Thread

    I've been wanting to post this one for a while, but until iprice recently pointed me in the direction of a suitable image-hosting service, it wasn't really possible without a great deal of fuss... This is the official Pandora forums stereoscopic photography and artwork thread, intended for...

    CALLING ALL MEGA MAN FANS!! There is a genuine chance to get the Legends 3 prologue-game onto the 3D

    Some news just reached my ears, and it's my sworn duty as a fan and upholder of the Mega Man series to publicise it here: A genuine chance to get MegaMan Legends 3 Prototype Version - a prologue-game set before MegaMan Legends 3 itself, which was originally intended to gauge demand for the title...

    Just for fun: If video game "qualifications" counted for anything in reality, what would be on your

    Lately, I've been re-playing Lemmings 3D for the first time in years, and it directly inspired this thread with this; So, I ask you, if abilities and titles gained from video games counted for anything in the real world, what would be on your Curriculum Vitae? According to my taste in...

    Seeking info about old Win16 shareware game, "Bow & Arrow"

    I'm not sure if anyone remembers this old game. It's a shareware title for Win16, entitled "Bow & Arrow - In Search of the GREATEST Archer". It was by a fellow called John Di Troia, and was released in 1992. https://www.youtube.com/embed/iDcC7oeXym8?feature=oembed I first played it on a...

    Man, I saw the most depressing ad, today... (But not for the reasons you'd think.)

    I was watching a programme on television this evening, and during one of the ad-breaks an advertisment was shown for some sort of sports drink ("Powerade", I believe it was). Surely not a depressing advert, you'd think? Well, in terms of its content, no, but in terms of the small-print at the...

    Wally finds YOU... (Where's Wally? action movie trailer spoof)

    I'm sure most folks here are familiar with the Where's Wally? (renamed to "Where's Waldo?" for North America) franchise. My attention was recently directed to a spoof trailer, depicting what it might be like if Hollywood tried to make an action movie out of the series (accordingly, the North...

    I received an e-mail today from a long-time friend who is a fellow Mega Man fan, letting me know about this... Takeshi Aono, best known to Mega Man fans as the Japanese voice of Dr. Albert W.
