Christmas is here and, as promised, i will giveway the game “Mystery Case Files: Huntsville“. I used random.org’s list shuffler to create a winner from a very short list.

Anyway, i contacted the winner for his present. This post is here just to tell him...

Small hiccup on the “Featured” post

This line shortens the post to the first 500 characters so it will appear like an excerpt. But here is the...
