Hard Drivin’

30p a play or 50p for two credits. This was my all time favorite arcade game. It’s even got it’s own wikipedia page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hard_Drivin’

Two linked cabinets so you could race you mate on the same track. A 3D stunt racer with features way ahead of it’s time. Polygon graphics engine, great sound effects, network play, clutch pedal, ignition key start, force feedback steering.

If I ever see one come up on eBay I’ll be placing a bid to two!

jEdit Text editor

I’ve used several text editors but always gravitate back to jEdit. It provides syntax highlighting over 100 languages. It’s also got a neat plugin system, ftp/e-mail/sudoku client plugins anyone? Being built on Java it’s cross platform too!

Take a look at http://www.jedit.org/
