Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.
Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !

Astoria is a grand houseboat, adapted as a recording studio by its owner, Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour. It is moored on the River Thames near Hampton. Gilmour purchased the boat in 1986, because he "spent half of [his] life in recording studios with no windows, no light, but on the boat there are many windows, with beautiful scenery on the outside".
"In my case, I just happened to find this beautiful boat that was built as a houseboat and was very cheap, so I bought it. And then only afterward did I think I could maybe use it to record. The control room is a 30-foot by 20-foot room. It's a very comfortable working environment--- three bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom, a big lounge. It's 90 feet long."
Parts of each of the last two Pink Floyd studio albums, A Momentary Lapse of Reason and The Division Bell, were recorded on the boat, as were parts of Gilmour's most recent solo album, On an Island. It was also used for mixing the Pink Floyd live albums Delicate Sound of Thunder and Pulse as well as the Pulse film, Gilmour's Remember That Night DVD and his 2008 live album, Live in Gdańsk.
It's not a huge environment (...) So we couldn't keep the amps in the same room with us, and we were forced to use slightly smaller amplifiers. But after playing around with them in the demo stages of the project, we found that we really like the sound. So a Fender Princeton and a little G&K amp became the backbone of Dave's guitar sound for that record.
A video of Andrew Jackson, sitting at the mixing console of the Astoria Studio, is available online.
According to an interview with Phil Taylor (Gilmour's Guitar Technician) the Astoria was originally equipped with UREI 813 studio main monitors with Phase Linear amps. The UREI 813s were replaced around 1990 by ATC main monitors. Currently, customized ATC SCM 150 ASL active speakers are used for main left and right with a standard ATC SCM 150ASL active speaker used as the centre channel. The centre channel sits above an ATC SCM 0.1/15 subwoofer. The surround monitors are two ATC SCM 50ASL. A variety of near-field monitor speakers are used including Yamaha NS10s and Auratones depending on who happens to be working at the studio. The acoustic design was done with the assistance of Nick Whittaker, an independent acoustician, and much of the gear was recommended by James Guthrie and Andrew Jackson. The Astoria currently[when?] includes a Neve 88R mixing console, as well as three Studer A827 multi-tracks and ATR 100 tape recorders, which were modified by Tim de Paravicini. The conversion to a studio also required 23 kilometres of cables, which were sourced from Van den Hul cables of Holland. There are various compressors from Pye and EAR 660 tube designs, as well as EAR 825s for EQ.
