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.

A Lookout from the Past


I have recently begun to salvage some images from slides taken well into the past – from the family archives. These archives I have had for some time and now I have the technology to be able to bring these images back into the present. So for the next few days I plan to post a number of these photos from past slides taken by my grandfather many years ago.

Today’s image has me in the middle of the photo pointing to something that can be seen from the lookout. I’m not sure just what it is that I am pointing to – possibly towards my house. I’m fairly sure that the lookout is that of Mount Sugarloaf near Newcastle in New South Wales, Australia. On my left is my brother David and on my right is my cousin Michael.
