I play a game called javac every day. When it prints something like "error", then I've lost the game, so I try again and eventually I win.

I remember when I had time to play games. Now I just play the game called Life. And I don't mean the board game. Work, wife, kids, house, dog, cat, friends, family.

As a student, I do occasionally have some time for my games. I have also saved up quite a few by now. I won't name all of them, but right now I'm enjoying Fallout 3 and Civilization 4. My all time favourite game is Baldur's Gate II.

NY Times crossword puzzles, chess (badly), The Moron Test (rather better), Angry Birds, and a number of the Big Fish puzzle adventures despite the fact that they are all the same.

All of the above on my iPad.

Jesper, once you can consistently beat javac, you should move up to the next level: Ant. From there maybe even go on to the "nightmare level": Maven.

Starcraft. I got Angry Birds as soon as I unboxed my iPad. I hate it.

I have played a lot of various RTS games. Don't like first person shooters.

Oh yes, I know the games Ant and Maven also very well. And also the games Eclipse and NetBeans. I also play the game called Windows.

This one? It's a little bit like the game javac.
