How interesting is your IP address?

By going to you can get your IP address rated against a number of criteria including creating an icon and a poker hand from your address!

How looney is that? Anyway, it's a good waste of 30 seconds if nothing else...

Oh, my work one got a score of 13... must remember to do my home one and post that!

Java Spectrum Emulator - Jet Set Willy

After reading an article in Edge magazine about the making of Jet Set Willy, I had a need to play it. There are several versions out there, but the best I found (despite its tiny size) is at this Java Spectrum Emulator site. There are loads of other games there on the home-page that I dare not check out for fear of losing a weekend!

Jay is games

Wow, there are a lot of 5 minute time-wasters to be found at jay is games. I found the site by following a link to the 'Swoop to nuts' game which was linked from the Download Squad blog. I feel that it's high time I give a mention to Download Squad, because it's a very good source of time-wasters and I often link stuff that I found through there on this blog.

I will try to be better at acknowledging their links in 2006...

update: Ooops! I originally posted this on houseofgin!
