Trine 2 - An excellent sequel to an excellent game.

I really got hooked on Trine, I finished it pretty quickly I think, according to Steam I put 8 hours into it..  Either way,  I consider it one of my favorite games.   So I was excited to start playing Trine 2.  The game really does play well, and it adds new features to an already great game.    If you liked Trine, you will love trine 2.

Here is my game play video of Trine 2, showing some of the new features of the game.  Take a look, enjoy :)

Trine - Enchanted Edition

Over the 4 day weekend I spent a lot of time playing this game.  Trine is a wonderful side scrolling adventure that was released in 2009.  The graphics are amazing, and hand drawn and the game play is challenging and addicting at the same time.   I logged about 6 hours into this game over the weekend, and had one night that I looked up and realized it was almost 2am!   Check out my game play video below, to get an idea of what this game is like.

American Truck Simulator

American Truck SimulatorI've been playing this off and on since it was released and I have to admit, I really like it. I thought it was going to be boring, but something about it keeps me coming back. My main disappointments with the game is the inaccuracy of the maps. I live in California, and travel a lot of the roads that I played on in this game, and believe me, they are way off. Now besides that, it's still fun.. You just have to remember that it's just a game after all, and it was made by people in another country, so they can't get it all right :)

Linux/Unix Permissions Explained

Lock IconAs a new user to the Linux world, some people find the permissions system a little bit confusing.  I know many years ago when I started out I struggled with permissions.. I even know a few professionals who still have problems remembering how the permissions system works.   Well fret no more, I am going to give you a quicker primer on how the permissions work.   This Intro to the Linux permissions system will attempt to breal down to a basic system that is easy to remember and hopefully will demistify how permissions work on your Linux, or any Unix based system.
