Molyneux's Curiosity Renamed

Peter Molyneux tweets about a name change for his upcoming game/gullibility experiment, saying it is now known as "Curiosity:Whats [sic] inside the cube." Eurogamer notes this was to make the game stand out better from NASA's Curiosity rover on Google searches, and that the designer humorously adds: "Not what i voted for but ho hum. I wanted to call it 'Cube of Duty'."

Out of the Blue

Made omelets with my new/old pan this morning, and couldn't be happier with the outcome. I've tried to determine how difficult or costly it might be to pick up an older Le Creuset pan like this, and have not been able to find a single reference to the model I have, which is completely cast iron with no enamel coating inside or out. I can find eBay listings for similar pans with enamel, but my inability to find any references to such a plain pan from them makes me suspect it may be considerably older than the 30-40 years old that I've been estimating. I've grown used to being able to answer obscure questions like this through the internet, so it's a little frustrating how little I'm finding about this so far.
