Noob's Room
Okay you're in a room, you need to escape, somebody's already stolen the Apple Mac off the desk, but can you get out before the background music loop drives you nuts? Seriously someone post a walkthru to this point'n'click before my ears start to bleed...

If you're an avid point'n'clicker and you haven't found nordinho yet use a couple of those precious clicks and get your browser over there now. An astonishing collection of games with walkthru's for most of the games for those of us that are a bit limited in our ability. Especially worth a visit since they wrote to me today suggesting a link exchange and it's only my own laziness which meant I hadn't gotten round to linking to them permenantly already.

Also while I'm shouting out to other sites a load of respect to milinkito who linked me recently and despite the fact I have no idea what they're saying half the time (no hablo espaņol) a few quick clicks around reveal them to also be the home to some finely linked content.

Both sites are now linked permenantly in the right hand column of this site if you need to find them again and have an aversion to doing your own bookmarking.

Finally while I'm doing a catch up on linky and site stuff. A big thanks to all my visitors. I'm not totally sure what I was doing when I started this site - it really was intended as just some practise for my asp coding and somewhere to keep my own 'stuff' where it was easy to find. Anyways, a couple of years down the line and more and more of you are visiting all the time. Thank you! I've now just started to exceed my 30Gb a month bandwidth limit on my current package with my webhosts, Brinkster, so I've just upgraded to the top package which gives me unlimited bandwidth. So keep on visiting and bring your friends too! We may as well make use of the facilities.

So what does this mean to you the visitor? Well not too much hopefully. I'm opposed to advertising or membership on the site so I'll be covering the extra cost myself (it's not too much), but what it does mean is that I have access to some extra facilities. For a start I get a SQL Server database as part of the package so I'm looking to move the clunky Access database the site is currently based over to SQL Server. Hopefully this will mean I can keep things better maintained, but it will mean the site is down for a while, while I switch over. I'll keep the down time to a minimum though. I also hope to update the site to asp.net which won't effect usability at all (well maybe it'll be a bit quicker), but this is mainly for the challenge of reskilling myself. I hope to be doing a lot of stuff in my work life with C# and asp.net next year so starting here is a good practise experiment for me.

Right that's enough site stuff for now, back to the games and puerile nonsense...

Dinosaur Attack
Lazylaces' days are numbered when faced with dinosaur attack. *Ouch* that was my foot. Get off! Get off!

The Horn
Some juvenile fun for you from a juvenile UK advertising campaign. The Horn sees you trying to balance your desk while you attain an, and actually on your, increasingy excited state. How potnoodle ever got away with this filth on British television I don't know, but kudos to their advertising team (even if the product sucks). I'm not sure if the slang term 'the horn' is used outside the UK, but you'll get the idea soon enough (and if you don't the home page has a copy of the ad which will make it all very clear).

PaperStick
Point'n'click in a stickman style.

CSI Hidden Clue
Not exactly your normal point'n'click, but still a test for your clicking skills, hidden clue brings the world of CSI to your web browser. This is one of the few television series I have time for and this is quite a neat little game to go with it.

Darkness
I swear I'm playing too many point'n'click adventures (and my mouse clicking finger would agree) - I thought I'd played and posted darkness ages ago, but I had a search of the site and I couldn't see it anywhere. So here it is (possibly for the second time if I really am losing it which is very possible)...

Mad In Paris
I'm not totally sure how difficult a point'n'click game mad in paris is if you understand French, but if like me you've forgotten even the minimal schoolboy French you picked up as a youngster it's nigh on impossible. Hell it took me a while to work out you have to (and how to) create a user id by supplying your e-mail address. Does this now mean I'm going to inundated with Le Spam? I wait with baited breath to find out. Anway, these technicalities aside this is a rather a nice looking game and is worth a poke around just for the spectacle of the thing even if you're more than a little clueless about what's going on (I speak from experience).

One Time Never
I'd love to say there's some clever joke about posting a game called 1 Time Never for post 1111, but I'll be damned if I'm intelligent enough for that kind of thing. Shear coincidence only I can assure you. Anyway...

Even though One Time Never doesn't find us trapped in a room with an Apple Mac that we inexplicably want to escape (are all these games' designers PC fans or something?), it still manages to be a point'n'click game, so you can dust down that left click button and get to it. It seems to get harder as you go, but I don't think I've got too far yet... shouts for help etc in the comments as usual.

Flickr Postcard Browser
The other day I was checking out the flickr what's in your bag thingumy which was oddly fascinating enough, but now I've just spent far too long playing around with the flash flickr tag browser. Type in your search term and then browse through the board of postcards that are constructed for you in front of your eyes. Amazingly addictive. The screen grab above is from a search for 'laces' ('lazy' produced lots of pictures of sleeping cats). Fun for all the family...unless you search fo b00bies, which or course I would never do even in the name of research.

Food Flinging Frenzy
I've got this whole load of game links people have sent in that I should really be sorting though to post, but to be honest with you I've been too busy giggling inanely at Harold's Food Flinging Frenzy. A knowledge of Australian soaps broadcast on British television is helpful to get the joke, but not essential to enjoy the fun. Oh my mis-spent university years come flooding back...

The Doors
I don't know where I am...I don't know what I'm doing here...I just know I have to get out. Familiar Story? Connoisseurs of the point'n'click are used to getting inexplicably trapped in rooms they desperately want to escape from by now, but that doesn't stop you does it? The Doors sees you trapped in a room with lots of doors out (gettit?), if you're naive you might think one of them leads directly to the exit, but I'm afraid these things are never that simple my friend [thanks meme].
