Archbishop of Banterbury. He did a Kickstarter some time last year for a controller/keyboard that connects to you smartphone, and it got funded. Suggested manufacture and delivery in a month (what), as well as text and video updates (nope) and here we are many months later. More fool those that trusted him! Also, some are suggesting he embezzle-fo-shizzled some money from the project to fund his dire financial situation regarding Pandoras. Couldn't be arsed to read any further than that.

He didn't. There's the possibility he embezzled some money but none of it went towards Pandoras. No one has heard anything from him about them in a long time.

Seems like he's having a good clear out.
 
Colonic Irrigation ?. Hmmmmmmm!!!.
 
 
Final Pandoras and parts 
 
 
Hello everyone,

I'm clearing out the last of the original Pandora consoles and parts that are left in
the UK.

We also have PCBs and totally dead units (good for spare parts) along with 4200mah
batteries and all case parts.

The consoles were either faulty, returned or somehow damaged - I've been gradually going
through them and fixing what I can with various results. Each unit I've got working has a
new LCD cable and the new silver case.

With prices from £2 we thought it was worth seeing if you wanted anything before
we put them on ebay or throw them away (I really don't want to have to bin all this).

There are repaired fully working units, units with broken nubs, broken speakers, broken
USB ports etc. all to be sold way under cost price.

If you're interested in getting one, email sales@gbax.com and let me know what you're
after.

First come first served, these are the absolute last of the last and must be sold.

Thanks,

Craig

And nice-guy ED has said that if you bought a P1 that Craig never fulfilled and didn't buy a discounted 1GHz one from him already, the discount will carry on to the P2 (or whatever it will be called).

Golly gosh, I had no idea of all this scandal! When did things start to turn sketchy?
 
 
Also, what a nice young man that EvilDragon fellow is.

Things were sketchy from the very beginning, apparently. You mean when did we have solid evidence of Craig's lies and not just hypothesis and conjecture? Probably about 8-12 months ago. It came to a head last month though.

Awks. In what way were they sketchy from the beginning? My impression from a very brief look over this stuff was that a series of bad things happened to Craig and instead of being open about them he mislead as to their true extent?

From the very beginning, 2008 pre-orders, Craig claimed that everything was ready to go, just needed the money to make the case mould and start production. It was recently (a year ago I guess?) brought to light that that was not in any way true, which we had suspected for years now but couldn't actually prove because Craig doesn't admit failure ever.

You got a link to some thread drama on this? I must've missed it!

Nothing on hand, it was something EvilDragon said on the openpandora.org forum a bunch of months, maybe a year ago. I'll see if I can remember where.

And you're not even seeing the stuff I delete within seconds of it being posted.

I emailed ED about being made a MOD to help moderate (ie remove spam) from here - he said he'd get on it, but hasn't yet.
 
I know this place is dying, but letting it get buried under a ton of spam is even sadder. WS - you are doing a grand job.
