Have you ever tried to download more than 2 files from the same website and noticed the third download doesn’t start until one of the prior two are done? The reason for this is that the HTTP 1.1 spec says that only two connections may be allowed at a time, so your browser adheres to that limit.

I was also informed of another cool Freeware game the other day and thought I would share it.  The game is Hurrican which is a remake of the classic Turrican.

A friend of mine recently turned me on to a cool freeware game called Knytt Stories.  This is a very cool and well designed 2D game that I spent a few hours on last night.  The graphics are not fascinating and the control is relatively easy, but the design and power ups you get to complete each adventure is addictive.  Plus the developers included some very cool relaxing music playing in the background.
