- Monopoly as a Markov Chain — see the probability of being on any given square after a given move. (via Joe Johnston)
- BoxerApp — package old DOS games for your Mac.
- How Old Is Your Globe? — determine the age of your globe from the no-longer-existant countries it contains. (via Richard Soderberg)
