A Bargain For Some Games (and Music)

And A Word About “Flame”..

Folks, a helpful reader left a comment telling me about an “indie bundle” deal on (12) games and music you may want to be aware of. These types of deals let you set the price, and your contribution can help charity. [note: Steam is required for most of these..] I quote:

“Here is a Game sale and you give to charity. 5.99 for 12 games plus music…

Indie Gala V is LIVE ! – YouTube

“Gives fans of indie games and indie music a chance to save money on awesome games and albums and contribute to a good cause at the same time!

We believe that there is a close link between music, video games and comics.They are all forms of art that often complement each other. With our initiative we want to give many talented developers and artists the opportunity to have a wider audience.

IndieGala lets customers set their own price for high-quality indie games and music, then donate some or all of the proceeds to Able Gamers and Italian Red Cross for helping Emilia hit by earthquake.”

Today’s reading reco: (I have been telling you,  for some years now, that {some of} the malware I encounter is military grade..)  Flame Malware: Cybergeddon or Old News?

Over the holiday weekend the online news networks were abuzz with news of a “massive cyber threat” variously called Flame, Flamer, or sKyWIper.” Read more..

(Irresponsible journalism creating hype [for ratings]??? Never happens. Learn the skinny. Click the link.)

(.. but, no. I have not seen Flame/Flamer/sKyWIper.. yet.)

Of possible interest: First time I have seen that.. $1 per Gigabyte.. on a solid-state (hard) drive. (Click here if you don’t believe me..)

Today’s Quotable Quote:Life is made up, not of great sacrifices or duties, but of little things, in which smiles and kindness, and small obligations given habitually, are what preserve the heart and secure comfort.” ~ Humphry Davy

  1. Re: Quotable Quote…My Thoughts On This Quote. . .

    Life “IS” About Great Sacrifices and Duties, which is often more “Rewarding” with a feeling of Pride and Accomplishment, than when life is lived in an Non-Sacrificing or Dutiful way.

    Of course Smiles, Kindness and Obligations are necessary. When all is experienced together… the heart is Secure and Comforted…could be termed as A Utopian State.

    • Gaia,
      I think it takes a little experience (some might call it “seasoning”) gained before one appreciates that one’s sense of “worth” (“esteem”?) is derived from challenges/responsibilities met, accomplishments, charities performed, etc., and not from the size of your record collection..

      But.. not only have we become a nation of “consumers”, but we want “instant gratification” (Infantile) and so I post quotes like today’s — try to get folks thinking. Glad you “related” to it.
