8 Bit Computer; $12

From WIRED:$12 Computer: Playpower Wants to Save the World 8 Bits at a TimeSAN JOSE, California — The Apple II computer is long gone, but its heart beats on in the developing world, where 8-bit computers sell for as little as $12. Now, computer scientists see a way of using those ubiquitous, primitive PCs to help kids learn — by playing games."It is about bringing affordable computer learning to the 90 percent of learners in the world who can’t afford a $1,000 or even a
$100 computer," says Derek Lomas, who is leading the team.…. The $12 computing system itself defies conventional expectations of what a computer today should be. The soul of the Apple II and a geek microprocessor favorite of the 1970s, the 8-bit 6502 processor is the heart of these computers.

Planet Hively

Planet Hively [Musicdisk]
July 23, 2010Here is a nice little musicdisk for us to enjoy.NOTE: You need to have the dingux mouse driver installed to select music.
Get it here:, my first port!   Was an easy one though, but i can´t describe how happy i am! More to come hopefully.   Planet Hively by IRIS & up rough port for DinguxIMPORTANT:
To be able to select tracks, you need SiENcE´s mouse driver installed and running!!!! Tried compiling with joystick flag but the demo somehow thinks the Dingoo is no joystick...Installation:
Copy where you want and add a link to the menu of your choice.
Don´t forget to run before running Planet Hively.Bug: When moving mouse vertically the volume gets changed. After running, you need to start the demo twice, the first time somehow doesn´t work. Have fun :-)Discuss it here: http://boards.ding…
