Tech Tuesday – Get Your LAN Party On in Albany

The LAN parties I'm talking about are not about taking the XBox 360 and hooking up to someone's home network and playing side by side, which you could do. This more about the computer gaming side, using PCs. It's still very much active and alive. QuakeCon is still a big event and StarCraft tournaments in South Korea are like the NFL, NBA and Baseball all rolled into one over there. With players of those gamers getting rock star treatment. If you want to just experience the fun locally, here's how.

Tech Tuesday – Donkey Kong Turns 30

30 years ago this month, the struggling American division of Nintendo, released the game Donkey Kong on the unsuspecting American shores making the company do a 180 and firmly making a place for the game and the company in the history books.
