Submitted by
rbarreira
rbarreira writes "The source code for the original Prince of Persia game has been released on github by its author, Jordan Mechner. This release comes three weeks after Jordan announced the find of a box containing old floppy disks that had been forgotten in the back of a closet for 20+ years. A "digital archaeology" effort was launched to recover the contents of the floppy disks, with the help of Jason Scott from textfiles.com. Some photos from the "copy party" can be seen here."

+ - First phase of AIDS vaccine trials successful

Submitted by
rbarreira writes "Xinhua online is reporting on the success of the first trial phase of an AIDS vaccine, which was started on March 2005. From the article:

"Forty-nine healthy people who received the injection showed no severe adverse reactions after 180 days, proving the vaccine was safe," said Zhang Wei, head of the pharmaceutical registration department of the SFDA. "The recipients appeared immune to the HIV-1 virus 15 days after the injection, indicating the vaccine worked well in stimulating the body's immunity," he told the press conference.
After the results are further analysed, 800 more voluntaries may be needed for the second and third phases of the vaccine's trial."
