Pumpkin's Palette: Penguin Bookmarks

Penguins from Mawaru Penguindrum, and the iconic apple.

I've had this in my "Project Box" for a while now, so I thought it would be good to finish it off while waiting for something to download.

When do you watch anime?

Yesterday in the 'Anime' community on Google+, I asked the community when do they watch anime? Here are the options below:

A. I watch anime from morning till night.
B. I watch anime only in the mornings and/or at night
C. I watch anime during the day
D. I watch anime during my spare time
E. I watch anime only if I feel like it

The result was that most people watched during their spare time, or only if they feel like it. Personally, I like to watch anime at night or in the mornings.

So...let me ask you, when do you watch anime?

Doctor Who TARDIS PC lands on Earth

We suppose, in a sense, that this officially licensed and configurable TARDIS PC from Scan UK could be thought of as being bigger on the inside.

The 11th Doctor's TARDIS can now fly you into cyberspace. Scan UK has launched a PC shaped like the iconic blue police call box — and to be configured to the user's specifications.

Built to scale out of brushed aluminium, the chassis is assembled from 45 pieces and finished, Scan said, in the TARDIS' official Pantone blue.

But what's inside the box? The base specs, which come in at £935.99 (AU$1431.58), are pretty basic:

  • Dr Who TARDIS PC Chassis
  • Intel Pentium G2120 dual core, 3.1GHz
  • Gigabyte GA-H61N-USB3, Intel H61
  • 8GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600MHz
  • 500GB Western Digital HDD
  • 300W be quiet! BN133 SFX Micro-ATX PSU
  • Sony Blu-ray Writer
  • Microsoft Windows 7 Premium 64bit

Maxed out, it has an Intel Core i7 3770s quad-core processor, 16GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3, 2GB XFX HD 6670 800MHz GPU graphics card, 480GB Corsair Force Series 3 hard drive and Windows 8, coming in at £1933.16 (AU$2957.32). Pretty hefty dollars for something you won't even be able to do any high-end gaming on.

And for something that embodies the ability to go anywhere, or any-when in the universe, official Doctor Who-licensed goods sure have a hard time travelling around our tiny blue planet — the TARDIS PC is available only to customers in the UK.

Teaser: Characters

Cover photo
What's this you might ask? Well it is another teaser of the project that the My Bubbletea Time group is working on! Notice the icon on the right? That will be the icon that our project will use.

Currently, the project is going along nicely and we have been sticking to our plan really well. There are still some stuff that needs to be done and by next week, we will have a beta release for everyone to try out!

Until then, we will be busy adding more content, fixing bugs and revising the code!

What is it? Wait till next Wednesday to find out more.
