Test from the iPhone

I just found the WordPress app for the iPhone. I get to type a post in one character at a time. Seriously boring. I have been playing with Twitter a lot in the last few months Twitter/thatchspace. Finger is getting tired I’m bored

Monday Morning “Impediment to Productivity” – 20050919

Well you are all obviously still reeling (it's an audio joke) from last weeks onslaught. I think this week will be a little easier. I found this mouse-click game. You shoot a tranquillizing dart if a sheep makes a dash from the flock, and they rate your reaction time. They suggest a cup of coffee if you aren't fast enough.

Like all classic text adventures, you navigate using text commands, collect various items and confront friends and foe as you try to solve a mystery. And like the classic text, you get to learn about the melancholy Dane and his difficult relationship with his mother, sister, stepfather and the ghost of dear old dad. No iambic pentameter, though; the lingo's been updated (though you can enter notable lines from the play and get pithy responses). The Hints section is pretty funny as well. And it's quiet (unless you put it through one of those Steven Hawkings voice thingies). Lets keep going with the word games ( the nice quiet word games ) (more…)
