Onslaught - a new tower game

Got some time to spare?
Here's a new cool flash game by the name of onslaught.
Onslaught is a tower defence strategy game like the ones Shock Defence, Desktop Tower Defense and Flash Circle TD. Although it holds the basic logic of these type of games, it is the one with most features that I’ve ever seen…

Firstly you don’t have to play on a single map like in the others, instead there are 7 different maps. Secondly, it has an improved tower upgrade mechanism. You can upgrade damage, rate of fire, and range individually. Lastly, the towers can perform combo attacks, meaning two or more towers can attack stronger if you place them on a correct pattern. In addition to these great features, you can use shortcuts for almost everything which makes things easier. The first 100 levels are not so hard, but it starts being a nightmare after 100…

What are you waiting for? Go play Onslaught

rssHugger - A new service for bloggers

Here's a new directory I've signed up to.
rssHugger is a new service for us bloggers offering to publish our rss feeds.
To sign up to rssHugger, you need to either pay a one time fee of $20 or just write a review of the site. As you can see, I have chosen the 2nd option :)

I think the model of offering a free service for a review is a real good one and is suited for bloggers.

Are you signed up there already?

First impression - Rubicon Project

I've signed up for the beta of the Rubicon project.
If you haven't heard of it by now, the Rubicon is a self-optimizing platform for websites offering ads from multiple ad networks such as Google Adsense, CPX, Azoogle and Shopzilla.
I have implemented their ad solution in my blog on the top header 468x60 and the left 160x600 banners. They currently support only a small number of placements, but I'm sure their list will expand in the near future.
My current feedback on their service is that so far, only a small number of networks show ads on my blog and the interface while well designed still lacks a number of important features.
Having said all this, I have a good feeling that once mature, this product will enable site owners to maximize their sites' income in a significant manner.

Other products claiming to offer a similar service (I haven't tried them out yet) are:
RightMedia direct

Have you tried any of these or Rubicon?
