Anybody here have any experience with Superlative?

I'm on a website gig for a real estate broker and they have a Superlative site.

Superlative is totally locked down. There is no documentation. Any questions about how to use the software require direct interaction with someone on their staff (i.e. webinar, chat, email, phone)

Yuck. This thing is locked down tighter than M$ Office.

There must be better alternatives. Anyone? Bueller?

Hannity is live in Israel...

...attempting a pre-emptive strike on the President's upcoming trip.

I can hear it in the next room. He's going for broke.

Rubio: God gave me cottonmouth.

And yes, he has his own bottled water now.

EDIT: I'm curious. When the Token Latino farts, does he blame the god?

"Bad god! No!"

Sort-of gaming related question

I grabbed my landlady's 1-year old computer, which had been gathering cobwebs after she caught some sort of bug that slowed it down to an unusable pace.

I wiped everything off of it. I mean I nuked it. I booted from an external Linux disk and wrote zeros over the entire computer. Took about 5 hours.

Then I installed Ubuntu Linux and gave the computer to my 66-year-old history-buff roommate, who has never used a computer in his entire life. We're talking starting-from-the-absolute-beginning, intimidated-by-mice newbie.

I figure he'll get good enough on the thing to be able to supplement his reading (mostly historical fiction and non-fiction) with online info; it would be great if he got into that instead of watching Bill O'Reilly every day at 5. I can only hope.

I remembered that I pretty much learned how to use a computer by playing games, but solitaire and pinball isn't going to interest this guy.

Can anyone suggest some easy-to-learn, engaging games for Linux? I've looked at Freeciv and Battle for Wesnoth and I am installing both...

Any other suggestions?
