Only 50? Seems longer…

Lots of cool space and Gagar­in related info found via Google today; they also provided the cool anim­a­tion on their doodle — just […]

A great couple of weeks to be an iOS gamer

Three excit­ing games were released for iOS devices in the last week and a bit. One was from a well-estab­l­ished com­puter and con­sole devel­op­ment jug­ger­naut.

Some cool retro posters

Of course, you’ll see my thoughts or opin­ions pre­pen­ded or appen­ded to this post, oth­er­wise I’m just scrap­ing con­tent, and that’s not the intent. It seems today my online path was […]
