Running a Wordpress blog or a website isn’t really that much of a big deal at the beginning. It’s actually pretty simple. You install Wordpress on a webserver, you upload and install a theme, start blogging and you’ve got your website up and running. For the first two years, it’s a piece of cake.

I came across a couple of racing games I hadn’t spotted on SourceForge before.
