Do you have any favorite programs or games you think some of us might be interested in trying? Let us know.
For playing games and such, a dedicated game machine is a lot more interesting than a computer. Such machines are small and easy to move around to a living-room or any other place where there is a large HD screen. The BlueRay effects are a lot easier to be noticed on screens that are over 42", so a Play Station with its BlueRay player's display on a large screen is impressive.

I do surf the net, check e-mails, and such with my computer. Other than than, its main use is for photography post processing, word processing, making short movies, and so forth.

When it's toooo cold outside or late nites with nothing left to do I use the desktop to put together jigsaw puzzles. The program I use is Brainsbreaker, lets me choose the size of the picture, number of pieces and styles shapes, then it breaks it up and I put it back together. Great pastime for snowed in winters, kids and/or seniors.

Bonus here is I get to search for pictures to use for the jigsaw, meaning I spend a lot of time viewing photography on the internet.

I think the general term "surfing the web" with no specifics already implies that.
