Review of 4 movies. Part 2, the movie Sunshine

This is the second part of my movie reviews. The first review was of the movie Shooter and that review can be found here. I would normally avoid any kind of spoilers but this review will contain some; but do read on and you will soon know why. Sunshine (IMDb) (Trailers) After I saw Sunshine I was very close to do a post just about the experience, but since I don't want to be seen as a very negative person…

Review of 4 movies. Part 1, the movie Shooter

During the last month I went to the cinema a few times and decided to I would share my opinion about the movies. There will be 4 mini reviews which will be done in 4 postings. In each of the reviews I will try to avoid any spoilers except for one movie where the spoilers are for your own good... I will also be giving links to the IMDb (The Internet Movie Database) (great resource for movie information) and also…

Book review: Code Craft: The Practice of Writing Excelent Code (By Daniel Klein)

Daniel Klein recently did a very good review of the book "Code Craft: The Practice of Writing Excelent Code" by Pete Goodliffe. He blogged about this where he also includes a link to the full review on Javelobby.org (Don't worry the book is not about Java). So if you are a programmer / software engineer then I would recommend you check out the review. The book is worth getting for any software engineer I would say, not that I got…

Time to reduce the consumption of batteries with USBCell

I don't know if this is normal, but I feel that I'm buying batteries very often. Of course it matters that I have two kids which have several toys that needs batteries but still it scares me a bit when I see how many I bring back to recycling from time to time. If I think about the devices I got that uses batteries then the list is not short of course, just to mention a few of them: GameBoy…

Sony Playstation 3: Just not yet…

Some might have expected that I would write about the 'Playstation 3 Launch Event' here in Switzerland just as I did with the Nintendo Wii but that will not happen. World of Games did have a midnight launch event but I didn't attend. With Nintendo Wii it made sense to pre-order and even getting in at the launch; as it was hard (impossible) to buy the Wii in the stores for some time. This is just not the case with…

NovaCastle.com up with new design

Just wanted to mention that NovaCastle.com is up and running, this is my game download web site; where it is possible to select between more than 300 games which all can be downloaded for free. All games are downloaded as a trial version which last 60 minutes. It is of course also possible to buy the games directly from the web site. So if you are in the mood for a game then do go and have a look, I'm…

Nintendo Wii more than just games.

We heard it many times... Nintendo is about games and XBox 360 and PS3 is about games and media and wants to become the media center of everybody's home. There are no doubts that Nintendo will not be competing on the movie side of things, there is not even DVD playback. I find it great that Nintendo lets Sony and Microsoft do the battle regarding the next-gen disc format. Let the fight happen and then choose the winning format for…

Review: Diskeeper 2007 (Disk defragmentation)

Name: Diskeeper 2007 Professional Usage: Disk de-fragmentation Platform: Windows 200, XP, Vista Company: Diskeeper Corporation Verdict: Highly recommendable What is Disk fragmentation and do we care? Due to the Windows file system a file might be broken up in to blocks that are stored scattered around the disk. When a file is scattered we say the file is fragmented. When accessing fragmented files the speed is reduced as the hard drive will need to use several disk accesses to get…

Finally got through Flash Element TD

My friend Daniel Klein told me recently that he got through level 39 in Flash Element TD. So I just had to give it a try again, got to level 39 yesterday. Changed a bit in the way I upgraded and sold my towers and got through the game today. So I'm rather proud. Some pictures to prove it: Yeah, got through level 39 WOW. Position 165. This is how I did it, just a short description. ONLY use normal…

Review: Zodiac Tower

Name: Zodiac Tower Category: Puzzle Platform: Windows Download link: Zodiac Tower Developed by: Enkord Ltd. Verdict: Highly recommendable I decided to chill out today and play a game on the PC. Well, ended up playing longer than expected. The game I tried was Zodiac Tower (Downloaded from Big Fish Games) where I download the game for free. It is great to be able to test a game for an hour before deciding if the game should be bought or not.…
