Cheap Ass Gamer

Wednesday, April 16th, 2008

All gamers looking for cheap deals (and really, who isn’t?) – the site you’re looking for is Cheap Ass Gamer. CheapyD and his crew host some great forums for sharing deals, trading games and talking about gaming (especially for those of you feeling nostalgic for the games of yore). Wouldn’t you know it, they’re also fans of Gamepedia! So if you’re into gaming and stretching your dollar a bit further for MORE games, check out their site.

Improve your English, feed the world

120_60_button.jpgFree Rice is an excellent idea – perfectly simple and infinitely rewarding for all sides. You match words to their meaning and for each correct match, the UN donates 10 grains of rice to help end world hunger. So not only can you do a charitable act every day, you will also improve your vocabulary along the way. (It’s all paid for by advertising on the site and Bruji’s favourite company is one of the sponsors.)

Fear not Venezuelans Bearing Gifts

Getting presents is always fun. But sometimes the present is extra special – like this gorgeous Bruji book we received recently from Ediciones Minimas. It’s a nice thick notebook, completely hand-made with an awesome cover design sprayed on. “Look out, Bruji crossing”, which is something every Mac user should keep in mind.

Daring Fireball Sponsorship

Tuesday, October 16th, 2007

We are excited to be sponsoring the Daring Fireball RSS feed for the week. Daring Fireball is at the top of our NetNewsWire reading list thanks to John Gruber’s witty and funny writing. It’s like writing from a Nick Hornby doppelgänger – not a completely evil one, just with a tendency. Like all fun reading his posts are rare but between posts his linked list keeps us entertained. The linked list does have the downside of leading to the discovery of interesting bloggers that end up on our ever growing RSS feeds list. Either way you are likely to already be a Daring Fireball reader and a Pedia user. If not, subscribe to the Daring Fireball RSS feed and download our programs; we’re sure you will enjoy them both. Also to celebrate the sponsorship and the launch of our new 4.0 (a free upgrade for all 3.x users) we have scrounged up two cases of some great Chianti Classico wine to give away.
