In the early afternoon a small package arrived sent by Paul. When I
opened it I encountered a transparent plastic box with a dead scorpion
in it, and a small blue alarm clock with a blue bird on its face; the
"Twitter" clock as he later when I thanked Paul called it.
The alarm clock is something my daughter Alice wants to have, so I
keep it for her. It's an electronic alarm clock; the hammer between
the two bells is fixed.
World of Goo Update, 10 Years Later
Hey old friends, it’s been a long time! We no longer have a 2DBOY
blog, so thought I’d post this here – we’ve just updated the Win /
Mac / Linux versions of World of Goo for the first time since 2008
or 2009 – and hope you and your modern computers enjoy it!
Back in April I read about the World of Goo update. I recalled to having bought
the game many years ago and today I finally requested the download link using
the PayPal email address I used back then.
When I got the email with the download link I checked the email folder
for the actual date when I bought this great game. It turned out to be
almost 10 years ago! The 26th of October, 2009 to be
exact. And not only once did I buy a license but twice for 5 USD
each. And then I recalled that I bought a version for Esme's laptop
and a version for my computer running Linux so we could both play.
So, in the evening I downloaded WorldOfGoo.macOS.1.53.dmg and
installed it on my Mac mini 2014 running MacOS Mojave. However, after
I double clicked on the downloaded disk image (DMG) an error was shown
stating that the DMG "can't be opened because Apple cannot check it
for malicious software."
And soon after I was playing World of Goo on the Mac. Last time I
played this game was a few years back, on my iPad. Sadly, it got
stolen more than a year ago in a break in into our house and I haven't
yet bought a replacement.
