The first, Digsby, rules. It is another messenger program but this one does neat tricks. In the one window, I have access to all my IM contacts – MSN, Yahoo, Googlemail and even Facebook. All in one window. It not only tells me which of my contacts are online for any of those accounts, it also tells me when I have new messages. Sweetness.
The second, The Kingdom of Loathing, has eaten into my home time drastically. It is a turn-based game online where you kill monsters and such, but it is so ridiculous and so funny that I’ve been playing it a wee bit too much. The art is horrible, the storylines make little sense, but the sarcasm and humour more than makes up for it. It is just a good thing that there is a cap on how many turns you can play each day….
