Things to occupy your time when you're bored, or fun stuff to look at when you need a break.


Stress Relief


Browser Based Fun

These are generally games, puzzles and toys that run in your browser - they may or may not work in all browsers of course, and may require some kind of plug-in in order to function. Rather than just link to websites full of games, it might be best to link directly to a page containing a game/puzzle to enable visitors to get the quick-hit of fun.

Flash Based

These require the Macromedia Flash plug-in to be installed in the browser.

Streaming Media

Watch TV over the Internet.

Watch other peoples webcams (this is a family website - no dodgy ones please)

Java Based

These require a Java runtime environment to be installed, and the necessary plug-in to be installed in the browser.


Downloadable Games

These are games that will require downloading and installing to play, so won't be an immediate hit like the links above. They may well be available via whatever package management system your distribution uses. This list is merely to raise awareness of the gaming possibilities. The games listed here should be free, not commercial games.
