Awesome alternative to Pingdom.com – uptimerobot.com

Hi, as now ex-pingdom.com user I though I could share with you my almost 8 months hands-on experience - I'm using uptimerobot.com since 21st July 2014, so I assume the time series is long enough to make an objective opinion. The Awesome: A lot of checks for free (in comparison with pingdom.com) - 50 monitors and 5 minute check interval, can check by "ping", TCP connection or by checking for keyword on website. Pingdom allows 1 check and 1 minute interval for free (it used to be like that now it Read more [...]

Shadow Warrior (2013) review

The remake of 1997 Shadow Warrior made by Polish studio Devolver Digital really pleased me. I spent like 3 hours in game and I'm still enjoying it which is after all those years quite rare...

Duke Nukem Forever 2013 review, the Build version

If this review should give you one recommendation - don't read it. Just go ahead and download it right away - it's really worth the time. I've not been so attached to a game for several months and  I say what I mean and I mean what I say. I also did not include any pictures from the gameplay in this review and for a damn good reason - any interesting picture would probably lead to a spoiler, in fact the logo itself says a bit too much :). If you won't be able to play it like ever, you can see the Read more [...]

In Time (2011) movie review

In Time @ Wikipedia.org Statement: This is my personal subjective opinion, you might agree or disagree with the review but always say "why" in discussion below and please keep the discussion civil. Thank you. Long story short: Movie with interesting concept (using time as currency), unfortunately there are plenty of half-baked situations which ruin the whole thing. Foreword I do not consider myself a movie critic in classical sense - as somebody who is looking for the artistic merit. When Read more [...]
