Tech – for Everyone

Tech Tips and Tricks & Advice – written in plain English.


Some of you may have looked at today’s title, and wondered. I know I would’ve. What on earth is a “HIB”?

I learned of HIB when a (younger.. but it’s not hard to be younger than ‘ole Tech Paul) reader told me about a highly rated game they were quite enthused about, called Braid.

Which it turns out, is available as part of a rather interesting online deal.. the “HIB”

The Humble Indie Bundle #2

Pay what you want. If you bought these five games separately, it would cost around $85 but we’re letting you set the price!
All of the games work great on Mac, Windows, and Linux.

We don’t use DRM. When you buy these games, they are yours. Feel free to play them without an Internet connection, back them up, and install them on all of your Macs and PCs freely. There is no time-limit on your downloads.

You can support charity. Choose exactly how your purchase money is divided: Between the game developers, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, or the Child’s Play Charity. Also, if you like this deal, a tip to the Humble Bundle itself would be much appreciated!

This “HIB” is one of the Internet’s hot little ‘secrets’.

So, I thank my reader (you know who you are) for passing this along.

Check it out here. (Time is limited.)

Set your own price. Help charity. Braid is included. Hard to beat that.

Reminder: We are in prime cybercrime season. Let’s be careful out there and exercise a double dose of Paranoid Common Sense. (And if you missed it, be sure to see Beware “The Twelve Scams of Christmas”)
