  1. If you’re a fan of turn-based strategy games -- or just very old -- you might remember Panzer General 2, the 1997 classic which tested your tactics across a range of brutal World War II battles. Its varied campaigns, scenarios and engrossing game play ensured that Panzer General 2 is still remembered fondly today, but it’s not just about memories. The game has also been remade and re-imagined in various forms, and old fans and newcomers can try them out for free. Open General is an open-source FREE Windows "evolution" of PG with some challenging and complex campaigns. Just one -- "Guderian’s Gambit…" -- makes you a panzer commander, and sees you tasked with eliminating the Poles and crushing the French, before heading east and attempting to take Moscow. (Yes, that’s often just as bad an idea in the game as it was in real life). One note: the maps (which are detailed and very well done) are not all included in the game download. There is an option to download them as you go - otherwise you can play off-line. About the game and download http://www.luis-guzman.com/OpenGen.html Alternate download site https://sourceforge.net/projects/opengeneral/
  2. What experience do people out in the provinces rate their Internet access? Any suggestions for planning? I am very computer dependent (probably a bad thing). Do Roku streaming devices work? How about Apple TV or Amazon Fire? Can you stream live games (such as US NFL or MSL leagues)? Just trying to get my head around what I am going to be in store for. Last fall I was in Cebu City and had no trouble steaming in a Hotel, but then from a hotel out in Danao streaming was impossible. It is hit and miss? Are satellite Internet providers available?
  3. I recently ran across these two stories via an old friend. Thanks to our traitor (Snowden) I would expect that more activities involving our Intelligence Agencies will be coming to light. https://firstlook.org/theintercept/2015/02/19/great-sim-heist/ A little long but a good read http://www.foxnews.com/tech/2015/02/18/could-nsa-turn-your-hard-drive-into-cyber-spy/
  4. Anyone notice??? :) Philippines Internet Speed now at 2.1Mbps, up from 1.4Mbps year-on-year During the first quarter of last year, the Internet content delivery network company Akamai Technologies reports that the average Internet Speed of the Philippines was at 1.4Mbps. Just a year later, the same period of 2014, the Philippines’ average internet speed has significantly jumped to around 2.1Mbps or about 49 percent increase year-on-year. That said, this puts the country ahead of Vietnam and India which has 2.0Mbps and 1.7Mbps average downlinks speed, respectively. The Philippines is now behind from Indonesia (2.4Mbps), Malaysia (3.5Mbps), Thailand (5.2Mbps) and Hong Kong (13.3Mbps). Back in the first quarter of lat year, Akamai released the state of the Internet report which recorded the Philippine internet speed with 1.4Mbps. Moreover, in the last quarter of 2013, the average Internet speed of the country had increased to 2.0Mbps. This represents only 5 percent increase per quarter which shows a slow growth. While the Philippine average speed has significantly increased from last year by around 50 percent, the average peak speed has also decreased. From 13Mbps average peak speed in second quarter of 2013, it skyrocketed to about 32Mbps by end of 2013. However, it dropped back to 18Mbps in the second quarter of this year. That said, it could be the result of the data capping of 4G LTE network connections which used to be unlimited back in 2013. http://www.centriotimes.com/2014/06/philippines-internet-speed-now-2-1mbps-1-4mbps-year-year.html
