Take a look at C64i.com for instance: within a click you have dozens of classic Commodore 64 games to play, including Commando, Super Sprint, Spy vs. Spy and even The Great Giana Sisters. It's fair to point out that while most games do seem to run flawlessly, there are cases when the emulation is less than perfect. It's only a minor annoyance, however, as the site features more games than one can ever hope to complete.
Besides, the mighty C64, Nintendo's NES and SNES, and Sega Master System are well-catered for. Even Apple II has its own site of browser-playable games. What does put me down a bit is that I've been struggling to find one for my beloved Amstrad CPC.. but I'm not worried, with the fanbase it has in the UK someone is bound to set one up soon enough!
After agonizing over this for some time, it occured to me that literature award winners/nominees would be a good source for quality - and I was right! After reading a bunch of Nobel prize winners I'm convinced that the Swedish Academy has awarded top-notch novels and novelists (even in the old days when the Nordics seemed to win every year).
I recently took a tally of how many Nobel winning authors I have read, and I was pleased with the result: 17 so far! One from almost every decade, too; only missing the 1910's and the 2010's. Still a whole lot to go of course, but I have only just begun.. (more)
"The amount of forest saved per click varies between 2-30 square decimetres depending on how many sponsors we have at the time of your click and how much the sponsors are paying per click."
On the same site it is also possible to buy for example a whole tree for the price range of SEK 50 to 350, among other products. Nature protection made easy - heartily recommended!
Here are short reviews of a books that I have truly enjoyed and would readily recommend to anyone asking for good reading. (more)
Covering three of the five Nordic countries, I figured it would be a good idea to find something to read from each country. I was surprised to find out that one major characteristic that Finland, Iceland, Denmark, and Norway all share is a heavy, social depression; misery, ill luck, poverty, and general unhappiness run amok in the melancholic literature of each country. Sweden is an exception, as for some reason I'm yet to find a Swedish book that would carry the same sense of depression. (more)
This time I will write about two great Viking board games that we have enjoyed a lot; Walhalla and Fjords.
The Vikings are coming! (more)
The Church Foreign Aid will transport him to those that need his help in surviving poverty. Maybe in Ruanda, maybe in Nepal, maybe in Afghanistan.
We think this kind of campaigns are a great way to share wealth. There are dozens of similar organizations all around the world; find the one nearest to you for example from here.
(Note: Of course our money doesn't go directly into purchasing a specific goat. It goes into a charity fund that is then used for purchasing livestock to poor families. More about it over here, for instance.)
Why am I writing about this? Well, browsing an auction site, looking for a fun board game to play, we found a rare sequel! (more)
The time in Poland was awesome (in fact so awesome that I went back there a year later!), but I did find some time to try out the games, too. I was happing to find that I had made some excellent choices - and one of them turned out to be The Very Best Computer Game Ever Made! (more)
