You sometimes have some spare moments in life. What better way to fill those moments with some time wasting games? Every month I will select 5 games that are perfect for this: 4 that are free to play, and one great game that costs a little money. This months headliners will be Fable 2 ,I’ve been waiting for this title a very long time, and Quantum Legacy, a free browser based multiplayer RTS.

Online converting

When sharing information through the internet, nothing is more irritating than people who share information in uncommon formats, or let’s say: formats that you don’t use. Through the years, this problem has grown worse because every OS has it’s own text software that creates his own filetypes, his own media software that creates his own media extensions, etc. The best solution would be an open format that every platform should support, but that would damage some important monopoly positions, and who is going to decide which format is used? This is why there’s only one solution to the compatibility problem: converting from one format to the other. There’s some nice software to do this on the web, but the easiest software isn’t (spam)free, and you need quite some applications to be able to convert everything to anything. Luckily, web based convertors provide a better solution.
