Ways to waste your time on the web today

Without further ado, here is a list of ways you can waste your time.  Got your browser plugged in? Good, let's go...

Wire Frame, by Vector Lounge

Ever needed to play with a skeleton puppet? Well me neither, but now you can.  Well, it is Halloween soon.  BYT - you will need Flash for this to work.
Pull the strings - make it walk.

12 by 12 Tic-Tac-Toe

Play Tic-Tac-Toe (it was called 'Naughts and Crosses' when I was young) against your browser.  Get five in a row to win.
It's like Tic-Tac-Toe, only 12 times bigger and you need 5 in a row to win.

Mind Cards

Mind cards is a game of quick-thinking.  Answer as many simple challenges as possible in two minutes.  Score points.  Then compare yourself to the high score board.  Then feel a little bit sad.

The whole game reminds me somewhat the adventure game Abyss that I used to play on the Acorn Electron.  Only the Abyss was much harder and made you feel much stupider.

One of many types of mental challenges. Can you match the pattern as quickly as you can?

The mathematics doesn't get much harder than this, but how quickly can you click and type in the answer?

Tonfall sequencer

I don't know what this is, but I like it!

You start with a load of colourful circles drifting slowly around your screen in something akin to Brownian motion.  As the circles drift closer to each other they form connections like neurons in your brain all the time playing a haunting melody.  Change the melody by dragging the little circles around the screen, making and breaking connections and so on.

Computer generated music never sounded so haunting.

And finally.....

The Age Calc

Calculate your age in years, months, weeks, days - and if you know the exact time of your birth - in minutes and seconds.  Loads of fun to keep you going until next week.
