Red Alert

Which reminds me, and I guess I’m late again with posting, but you can get a free Red Alert (yes, the original) @ the EA website. Yes, they actually give out free stuff too (the thieves!). But don’t forget, it’s no more than a commercial stunt to get you to preorder Red Alert 3.

Go and get it here, or direct links here: Soviet disc (0.5Gb), Allied disc (0.5Gb).

Blog stats

Well, seems like Firefox is the most popular browser visiting this site. And on 2nd place.. Safari?! Who on earth uses Safari? Oh, but I guess mobile device, such as the iPhone & Symbian use webkit/Safari-like browser.

Well, let’s see if Google Chrome gets in that list. If only they’d release it for other OS’es too… 🙁 Seems like good ol’ Windows isn’t that popular anymore.



Cool YouTube video, showing what happens when a meteor hits Earth.
