Privacy is Private

 

With all of the recent information coming out concerning the governments, as well as certain massive companies insatiable appetite to gain as much information and knowledge about each and every individuals, I would like to just take a quick moment to relate that we at Panda Cub Productions believe privacy is an inherent right to each and every individual. The three apps that we have released thus far, iMoo, BSD, iFacetime are all simple and dare I say way super enjoyable little “party” apps. They just perform very straightforward tasks per se, no more, no less. Even if at some point in the future, we release a more complex set of apps, never would we stoop to such an intrinsically wrong and morally bankrupt level of gathering information on those who enjoy our beloved products.

 

We at Panda care deeply about our apps, we care deeply about our customers, what we absolutely could cares less about is what individuals do in the privacy of their own particular lives and or what types of details could be learned and passed along in terms of “user data”.

 

The classic saying, “Freedom is not free” is so very true. We have a responsibility and a duty to do what we can with our talents and abilities to help in the struggle so to speak to preserve and nurture our freedoms, which is why I support the cause for internet freedoms and other projects which seek to protect and maintain freedoms for all individuals.

 

One awesome, nonprofit organization which we support and rally behind is Fight for the Future. Check them out! Join along and help in the cause for our inherent liberties which are inherent to each and every person.

 

Having said all that, I just want to finish by saying thank you for all of the love and support that we have been given by so many who have enjoyed our apps. It truly is humbling whenever we hear responses from our customers. We value you, we cherish you and we want your rights as individuals to be protected and defended.

 

 

Merry Christmas

 

Hard to believe that Christmas is upon us once again. What a year is has been, a year of joys and a year of sorrows. Regardless of what life brings us, we should always be thankful for the many blessings we have, especially for the precious gift of life. I am also thankful for the many people that I have been able to come into contact with by way of  our little Panda Cub Productions, it has been wonderful indeed for me to do what I do here. So I wish all of you a blessed, joyful and peace filled Christmas. Lastly, I want to thank you for enjoying our little apps and enable us to keep the Panda “candle” burring bright so to speak.

As we are fond of saying here at Panda Cub Productions, may all of your pandas be merry!

It’s Been Quiet…Too Quiet

 

It has been a few months since there has been any activity “above surface” so to speak with PCP, in part because of some different issues that propped up some time ago. One of which is dealing with and helping to take care of some family members who have developed some severe health issues all at the same time. Another has been with some aspects of how best to advance Panda as a business.

 

Suffice to say, things are moving forward in very much a positive way for Panda, while my family members who have had to struggle with health issues are managing to be doing much better. Life is indeed a struggle, though one that is worth every moment of it! So while Panda has been quiet per se, some very cool things have been going on under the surface which I am totally enthusiastic about!

 

So with much gratitude for your support, loyalty and love, I want to thank you for the warmth and kindness you have show me and my little company! The Panda is very much alive and enjoying his delicious bamboo!

Wishing Everyone A Merry Christmas

As this year draws to a close, we want to say thank you to all who have come to enjoy the work we have put forth, and are looking forward to the new year to be able to bring you even more fun and entertaining products in the days ahead. As we are fond of saying here at Panda Cub Productions, may all of your pandas be merry!

How Do Ya Like Me Now…

If you haven’t noticed (thoughI am pretty sure you have) there is a new look to the Panda Cub homepage! After I blew up the web page back in Oct, which I wrote about in the previous Panda blog, my buddy Steve who was the one helping me with creating the Panda Cub logo came in to work his web design magic and help save the day! There are still a few little tweaks that are needed to be made here and there, like adding the PCP YouTube section but overall it is pretty well finished. I even was able to learn some bits and bobs “under the hood” type workings that impressed Steve! So have a look around the new and improved Panda Cub homepage and enjoy! Of course I would love to hear your thoughts on the new look and feel of it, so feel free to leave a comment and let me know what you think!

Oops, I Did It Again…

You may have noticed over the weekend that something…bad…happened to our beloved Panda Cub Productions web page. I can assure you we were not hacked by the North Koreans, the Chinese, Anonymous, or the League of Unjust. Yours truly perpetrated this most nefarious act of Panda Cub Web atrocity! I stand before you guilty as charged! For those who have the “inside scoop” of all the skeletons in the Panda Lords closet, one of those skeletons deals with my deleting the TCP/IP file from my Mac, for the simple reason that I wanted to remove all of the old, irrelevant files. Hence, utter devastation was wrought upon my Mac in one swift, brief moment of time. The wonders of the World Wide Web, and all that it offered me (like email and web surfing) came to a complete and definitive halt. With no real sense of understanding the full scope of my actions, I was desperate to seek any sort of help that could remedy this tragedy. Fortunately, for the Panda Lord, one of his closet allies came to his assistance and bravely restored the missing TCP/IP file. If it wasn’t for one of my best friends (Matt), my proverbial Battleship would have been sunk!

 

So knowing that particular puzzle piece of technological annihilation, it is clearly evident that it was only a matter of time until another such horrendous occurrence was set to take place. Well, let me tell you that it took place Saturday night. I was deep in the bowels of WordPress, attempting to better understand SEO (Search Engine Optimization), which is pretty much a whole new brave wold to me at this point. It was then that I have the masterful idea to move the Apps section, so as to become the new front page that all of our most welcomed visitors will see first, as opposed to the Panda blog. My guardian angel must have been yelling as only a non material being can, crying out with “DON”T DO IT”, but as a Roman Catholic who sometimes wanders off the proper path every so often, I did it! Thus, the utter destruction of the Panda Page was wrought! I basically created an auto infinite (and dare I say unintentional) loop*. So put simply, the web page was locked within an infinite loops, with no way of ceasing the auto loop. For some strange reason, I had this image of Schrodinger’s cat walking in a perpetual loop of life and death at one and the same time.

 

So with that, I did what any rational being would do in such a situation and curled up into a fetal position on my new bed, which I might add is ever so comfortable and firm enough to withstand the mighty frame of the Panda Lord! After about five minutes of getting tired of feeling sorry for myself, I got up and tried desperately to fix the chaos I was responsible for. No avail.

 

I was left with one recourse, a recourse I did not want to enact, but was faced with no other option but to inform the Panda Wizard. The best shot at fixing this mess lay with the Panda Wizard. So with a heavy heart, I fired off an email. Long story short, even the Panda Wizard was stumped as how to fix it, saying it was “really remarkable” what I had done! The only option left was a “Final Option”! BURN EVERYTHING! Tear it all down and start from scratch. Another friend was on the phone with me, my buddy Steve who helped with creating my envision of the Panda Cub logo. He said just to contact Host Gator and see if they can restore it on their end. How simple an idea, but with it came hope! I contacted Host Gator and one of their friendly and totally helpful tech support staff named Eugene took the time to look into what happened and then was able to save the Panda Page from his vantage point! So pass the bamboo and praise the Good Lord!

 

I am the luckiest Panda Lord there is! I was fortune enough to have had Eugene take pity upon my situation and miraculously save the day and even more significant though is how I have the best darn partner, who will tread the flaming hellfire coals of web Gehenna to help me! I am truly blessed…you don’t need a BSD-Bullshit Detector appto know that that is the God honest truth!

Sad News: Steve Jobs 1955-2011

It is with very a heavy heart that I write about Steve Jobs passing away. He had a remarkable vision and made that vision a reality, which allowed for so many good and positive changes in our everyday lives. He truly transfigured the world in which we lived. Our thoughts and prayers go out to those he leaves behind, his family, friends and to the millions of Apple fans around the world. We here at Panda owe much to Jobs, for we would not be here doing what we love if not for his remarkable achievements that allow an average person to do incredible and imaginative things with technology. Steve Jobs has left behind a legacy few can match. My hope is that those who will walk within his footsteps in creating technology for the rest of us, that they will truly think different as embodied by him. May his passion and his dedication be a motivator for all of us that we too can change the world in our own unique way.

Requiescat in pace

A Little Update

Just a little update from Panda Lord here…both of our latest apps that are currently in the programming phase are coming along very nicely, so it is very exciting to see them painstakingly being worked upon…As I type this post, I am listening to some of the music that the Panda Wizard has created for our “El Guante Brillante” app. I must say that the music he comes up with is pure cosmic, sonic harmony! I will keep you posted as we move through the Beta stages and get ready to release them! Go Team Panda!

Happy New Year and Bamboo For All

We here at Panda Cub Productions want to wish you a very prosperous, tranquil, joyful and dare I say grace filled year. I am always reminded at beginning of a new year of a very famed quote by Henry Wordsworth Longfellow, which states “look not mournfully into the past. It comes not back again. Wisely improve the present. It is thine. Go forth to meet the shadowy future, without fear, and with a manly heart.” So it is with a sense of accomplishment that I look back on our first year here at Panda Cub Productions, as well with a sense of anticipation and eagerness for the new year. Working side by side with my most esteemed partner Tim (known around these parts as the Panda Wizard) we have been working assiduously to bring forth even more whimsical and superb products for your entertainment and enjoyment in the coming months!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

We at Panda Cub Productions would like to wish everyone a very blessed, joyful and safe Christmas.
