The Ultimate Sin is the fourth studio album by British vocalist Ozzy Osbourne. It was released on 22 February 1986, and it was remastered and re-issued on 22 August 1995. This album features guitarist Jake E. Lee (formerly of Mickey Ratt, Rough Cutt and Dio).
The Ultimate Sin is the first and only Osbourne album to feature bassist Phil Soussan (who wrote the album's U.S. hit single "Shot in the Dark") and the first to feature drummer Randy Castillo, who had previously played in Lita Ford's band. Lyrics were largely written by long-time Osbourne bassist and lyricist Bob Daisley. Daisley left prior to recording after having a disagreement with Osbourne, prompting the hiring of Soussan as his replacement. Daisley was not credited for his songwriting contributions on the initial 1986 pressing of the album, though this was corrected on subsequent pressings.
Drummer Jimmy DeGrasso worked with Lee and Daisley on demos for the album, but this version of the band fell apart due to Osbourne's commitment to the Black Sabbath summer 1985 reunion concert at Live Aid; Randy Castillo and Phil Soussan ultimately replaced DeGrasso and Daisley once recording commenced.
At the time of it release, The Ultimate Sin was Osbourne's highest charting studio album, as heavy metal was enjoying a surge in popularity during the mid-1980s. The RIAA awarded the album Platinum status on 14 May 1986, soon after its release; it was awarded Double Platinum status on 26 October 1994. The album sold over 2,000,000 copies worldwide. In the UK, it was the final of four Osbourne albums to attain Silver certification (60,000 units sold) by the British Phonographic Industry, achieving this in April 1986.
Despite its initial success, The Ultimate Sin has since been deleted from Osbourne's catalogue and was not reissued or remastered along with the rest of Osbourne's albums. Rumours circulated that the continuing legal struggle between Osbourne and bassist/songwriter Phil Soussan over Soussan's song "Shot in the Dark" was responsible for the album's failure to be re-issued. However this is unfounded, as the only known legal process between them was over an accounting issue that was said to be resolved in the early 1990s. The only available CD version of The Ultimate Sin is the 1995 remasters version. The original version of the album is still freely available in Australia as a budget-priced CD.

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 !
