think of a new alias, as your current one is obviously flawed according to the above question ;-)

then download LOIC and point it at 127.0.0.1 keeps me entertained for hours

Supported.

Jack McDevitt's "Academy" series is pretty good. Finishing up "Cauldron."

Either that, or pick up Minecraft.

Because you'll never get a working life-sized version of Voltron built in only 2 days.

..if you like side-scrollers and puzzles, you could get a copy of "Braid". It's a pretty cool game where controlling time flow is the main game dynamic. I can't really do it justice, but look at the demo on the site. :-)

Even though this is a single-player side-scroller, if you have a friend who likes puzzles, it can be fun for more than one person, because.. ..well.. ..it's a puzzle. Either person could figure it out, even if one person is at the controls.

..it cost me $10 from the software center. I would have spent more going to a movie, and it was definitely more fun.

Oh, and by the way, there are multiple endings. So if you beat it, and you're disappointed with where the story went, you might want to go back through and see if there was something you didn't catch.

* oh, one thing of note. The billing system for Ubuntu has a bug right now. Some cards won't work if you try to buy in USD -- it'll give you a '3DSECURE' error. ..if you're willing to pay your bank's exchange fees (usually somewhere between 0.5 and 3 percent) you can select 'euro', and it should go through. With the exchange rate at the time, I think it cost me 11-something.

Braid and Limbo are pretty good Indie games.

My wife is out of town; therefore, I am bored.

Just for the fun of it, I am downloading the Windows 8 Release Preview and installing it in a virtual machine.

I am curious just how much it is oriented to smart-phones and pads.

I am also downloading Ubuntu 12.04 for the same reason.

I want to compare them.

My dev mate runs it on a samsung tablet, metro really makes sense and comes into its own on that, pretty slick.

Hm, sounds like a fun game... I once played a game where time control was crucial... Favorite game ever. The name was Majora's Mask I believe.

Type out an essay in which you persuade your audience (other Ubuntuforums folks) that you really do deserve your moniker. Wait for peer feedback.
