Taken from a social media post:
Sometimes, proprietary software actually helps us fight for freedom. Windows 8 is so bad it’s almost funny–it’s not only proprietary software full of spyware and security vulnerabilities, but it’s also confusing for would-be users. Lucky for us, Microsoft’s spectacular failure is the perfect time to help people switch to free software.

“Wait mister!… Why you no buy???”
I’ve been recently addicted to a little game called Towns.
A recent update seems to be causing a transaction issue when you trade resources with the merchants that pass through the town.

Posted in relation to a glitch mentioned in the forums.
I am wanting to start a little project of reviewing computer games that fit a few requirements (or at least most of what I’m looking for). For which I will call the “Budget Lanner’s Challenge”.
I call it a challenge because of the criteria I will be scoring them against. I will probably start checking things out on my own – but if you know of a game that deserves to be scrutinised – contact me!
The main criteria I am judging against in my reviews:
- Must be multi-platform (Linux + Windows as a minimum requirement)
- Must be free or low cost.
- DRM and other licencing factors.
- Must be multiplayer capable
- Bonus points if it can run on an isolated local network.
- Bonus points if it survives my “laptop/netbook challenge”
- Level of ease in setting up any local game servers.
