Supertuxkart – the kart racing game

If you are a fan of Super Mario Kart then you are sure to either love or hate SuperTuxKart: there is no room for ambivalence here! From the wee-bit unoriginal name – SuperTuxKart – it is quite evident where the inspiration for this racing game hails from, but how does SuperTuxKart compare to its big famous brother?

SuperTuxKart can be downloaded for free, and as soon as you’ve done so it becomes evident that more than just the name of Mario has been borrowed. The interface is very similar to that of the original, with a selection of drivers/vehicles available for the user to choose from.

And just like with Super Mario Kart, there is a selection of various weapons and power-ups that allow the player to take out opponents, charge past them and essentially achieve the end-goal of being first across the line.

If you have always been a fan of the original Super Mario Kart then it is worth downloading a copy of this homage, purely for nostalgia and curiosity. It is fun to see how a classic has been taken, and interpreted by others.

Whilst some of the variations on the original can almost be viewed as improvements, making you wonder why the creators of the ‘real deal’ hadn’t thought of it in the first place, there are other features that just seem a bit facile and a bit weak. All in all, though, it’s hard to argue with a freebie that’s this good-looking.

5 Signs When Your Computer Is Overheating

Signs that your computer is overheating:

– goes “blue” (PC boot up but after a while starts giving errors that turn the entire screen blue)
– unusual fan sounds (fan starts to sound differently than you are used to)
– constant rebooting or shut downs (to prevent damage to components, check the cooling fan)
– non-fan-based CPU overheating (you could need new thermal compound between its heat sink and processor)

To overcome these signs, try and use SpeedFan, the free application from Almico that monitors fan speeds, temperatures and voltages. In case you system runs on Windows 7 here are three similar gadgets:

CPU Meter (to monitor your CPU)
GPU Observer (to monitor your Video Card GPU)
Q’s Drive Info (to monitor your HDD disk space)
