5.0 out of 5 stars Something quite unique, 13 April 2014
This is absolutely a must-have for couples, families or for when you're planning a night in with your mates.
This game has 6 different sports: wake racing, football, tennis, bowling, shooting and climbing. All of them are brilliant on their own, although you will find that some are harder than others.
Although you have a "Career" mode in which you play part of different teams competing on one different event after another, as soon as you unlock all sports, you are free to play any of them, either alone or with someone.

Although quite simplistic, this is so much fun when playing with someone. One of the most unique games I have bought in a long long time.

Yes, I've seen… Read more

I had the opportunity to read through different books regarding the subject and, while I must admit that each and every one of them has its pros and cons, Operating System Concepts provides the reader with a very solid introduction to the subject. Each chapter is very well structured, mainly on examples from real OS's like Solaris, Linux, Win XP or Mac OS X. Reading through the book, one will notice that some parts are repeated over and over again, but I must stress that I find this a very good thing because it keeps the reader with former issues fresh in their mind. Also, at the end of each chapter, there are some really interesting programming exercises in which the author engages the… Read more
