Only for Disciples

Meaning those with discipline. If you are able to say to yourself "I will do X for 20 minutes and then stop" and you stop doing X in about 20 minutes, then it is safe for you to continue. If, on the other hand, you say to yourself "I will do X for 20 minutes and then stop" and find yourself still doing X hours later, then Zwok is not safe for you.
Zwok is a flash based game that pits teams of three cute little monsters (Yes, this is a guys blog and I just said "cute". Get over it.) against another team of three cute little monsters. You start off throwing balls at the other team, but as you gain points, you get new weapons like clusters, bouncers, or the ultimate - a brick (Hitting a noob with a brick is just a way to say "Welcome to the neighborhood, can we be friends"...really.)There is a rocking soundtrack, cool backgrounds, and rock throwing. What more, you may ask? Well you can customize your creature's appearance by choosing a face, costume and color. You also choose which team you will 'play' for, Blooz or Grienz. Blooz rule, but Grienz drool, and that's cool, just ask Willa.
Should you find yourself in Zwok-land look for Leatherwing. I'll be the Grien with the brick.

Macs just work!! (for people that don't like to)

In January I bought my first Mac after having used PC's for many years. I like the machine, I dislike the cult(ure). I mean, I bought a computer, I didn't sign onto a way of life.
If, like me, you are a little perturbed by the new Mac commercials that make fun of PC's, give this a try.
