    OpenPandora.org - Pandora The OMAP3 Powered Handheld Linux Console

    Anyone else waiting for it or planning to buy? I placed a pre-order some months ago and I'm expecting it to ship in the upcoming 2 or 3 months... or maybe December. I'm actually very excited about it. The specs on it were da selling point. I'm planning to have it run my emulators (atari, zxspectrum and mame) and if I like it enough will buy another for the girls. Eventually will also start digging other software for it.

    In any case was just talking about it with a friend, and remembered to ask.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    Wow! With GL hardware and gaming controls -- somebody better start making some games for it then!


    Alas, I won't be getting one -- I would wreck something like that pretty quickly.
    C programming resources:
    GNU C Function and Macro Index -- glibc reference manual
    The C Book -- nice online learner guide
    Current ISO draft standard
    CCAN -- new CPAN like open source library repository
    3 (different) GNU debugger tutorials: #1 -- #2 -- #3
    cpwiki -- our wiki on sourceforge
