Browser-based Nation Simulation Game: Nation States


Nation States is another free browser-based nation simulation game I have been playing which is quite different to Cyber Nations. In Nation States you create your nation and decide in which region of the world it will be located. The nation is developed and advanced through answering a question or two each day, so it doesn’t take a lot of time to play. You are able to interact with other nations through various aspects of the game.

Browser-based Nation Simulation Game: Cyber Nations


Cyber Nations is another game I have been playing which is quite different to the previous three games. Cyber Nations is a free persistent browser-based nation simulation game in which you create a nation and rule over it. You decide how the country will be governed and develop its technology, infrastructure, military, taxation, improvements and more. You can also decide if you will engage in warfare with other countries within the Cyber Nation online world and how you will go about it. This game doesn’t take a lot of time each day, but it can be quite interesting to get into.

Spruz – Create and Grow Your Own Social Network


After being through the dramas that occurred at Ning and now Grou.ps (see yesterday’s post), I have now moved by social networking activities over to Spruz. I did think that Grou.ps had a lot of potential, but having abandoned that platform I am trying out the Spruz platform. So far I am impressed. I think some of the themes could do with some work and the one I am using is fairly average I guess, but it does the job. Maybe I can tinker with it some more when I have a bit more time.

Without doubt I’d have to say that the platform at Spruz is far more stable and the outfit far more professional than what I was used to over at Grou.ps. So in short, thus far Spruz has my endorsement.

Today’s link is to a web application that allows the visitor to create official seals – think FBI seal, etc. Perhaps you need a seal for your organization? This site will allow you to create your own.

Privnote: Self-destructing Notes


This is a web application with a difference. If you are keen on strange applications or the slightly bizzare, perhaps this one is for you. With privote you can create a note and get a link to it. You can then send an email with that link to someone and once the note is read the note self-destructs. Get your own dose of Mission Impossible.

Ning Free No More


Ning, the site that allows you to create your own social network, is going to discontinue its ‘free’ service and only have paying clients. I used to use Ning but changed to the Grou.ps platform about a year ago. I believe I made the right decision when I did so and now I really feel I made the right decision back then.

If you would like to visit Ning, click on the link below. However, I have a feeling that many social networks will be fleeing Ning and looking for alternatives.

Rollyo: Create Your Own Search Engine


If you have a website and would like to create a search engine just for it, you can use Google of course, or you can use Rollyo. But more than that, with Rollyo you can add whatever sites you like to the search engine. This is a great little idea which I intend to use in the future (when I get around to doing so).

Penzu: Create a Private or Public Diary


Some people like to have a diary in which they pen their private thoughts – just for themselves. Penzu is the online equivalent of that idea. It will also allow you to share your diary or journal should you to choose to do so. However, one the best things about Penzu is that it is unlikely to be found by nosey people looking about your house – even your partner or other family members.
