Best freeware and shareware software downloads

All Content at the Start

I hate it when video games have content locked behind progress. When I was a little kid, in some of the games I played, you had to progress through a portion of the game to unlock extra content. I would rather have all of the content available to me at the beginning of the game, as needing to fulfill conditions to unlock something feels like unnecessary work. This gaming trend has continued well into my adult years. I know old habits die hard, but this is ridiculous. I escaped this in one game by using a Subway Surfers hack.

Like other games that came before it, Subway Surfers had locked content that would later become available when you do certain things. I really don’t have as much time as I used to when I was a kid to play video games. Whenever I do get to play video games, I play it in short bursts, like when I’m riding the train. Continue reading

Best Site for Good Torrents

I am going to try to find a good place to get torrents for the files that I would like to download. I recently had my harddrive die on my last laptop, so I had to spend 500 dollars to get a new laptop. That set me back quite a bit, and i am not at all happy about having to spend that much money. It was kind of sad that I had to do it. Anyway, I am looking at right now, because I am not going to be able to replace all of the programs and files that I had on my old computer without torrenting some of them.

I am not even sure how many different things I lost in the first place. Hundreds if not thousands of files. Let me rethink that, it was probably thousands of files, if not ten thousand of them. Continue reading

Challenging the Notion of Gaming

With the NES being the very first console to introduce me to my love for gaming, I sometimes find myself comparing that experience with that which young gamers have now. What is it like to have your first game be played on a platform that requires no controller in your hands? What is it like to be so integrated with a game via the touch screen? With the Oculus Rift, it might even become more immersive as the motion of our bodies will become the controller in VR. I wondered about a Real Racing 3 hack that my brother was looking up; was it the same?

I remember my first cheat codes. I remember the hacks that game genie delivered to us. A way to manipulate games on the developer side of things introduced a whole generation of kids to new way of looking at games. Continue reading

Branding Has More Value Than SEO

Search Engine Optimization. It’s an important tool in the belt of any website administration whom is attempting to bring up the page ranking for their website. A good SEO manager knows the importance and the power behind a healthy keyword portfolio that is able to out keyword the rest of the competing websites. Whether that keyword is something like ‘receipt template word’ for a invoice template website or something else, it takes trial and error in order to find the right series of keywords that are utilized most frequently by users querying the targeted search engine – most often Google or Bing.

Of course this is why data is sold so often by third party applications that are plugged into the browser. This sort of information is exactly the treasure trove that marketers are looking for when they buy the data. Continue reading

Is Cheating a Part of Gaming?

Is cheating in games a bad thing? Many hardcore gamers would most likely believe that it’s in poor form to be a cheater or a hacker. So are these Trivia crack cheats something that we as a community look on with disgust or scorn or should we instead accept them as a part of what makes a game, in fact, a game. What is a game? A game at the core is a system of rules and values that are utilized by players that results in changes being made within the defined variables within the game’s system. Whether the goal is to win or to simple increase a statistical value, a game is still composed of a system of rules.

Rules, however, are always made to be broken. Continue reading

Thinking About Switching to a Different Internet and TV System

Thinking about switching to a different internet and TV system since I went to visit my sister last weekend in Indiana. They have Fort Wayne fios from Frontier, which is a fiber optic based internet and TV delivery system. I did not really sit down and do a speed test to see exactly how fast it was, but I know for a fact that it must have been at least three or four times the speed of what I usually get from my Internet service provider. The annoying thing is that I am paying more for the poor service that I am getting than they are paying for the great amount of bandwidth that they have. The difference is probably around fifteen bucks for the internet and about the same for the TV. I think that it might not be perfect for all people, but that is based on what I was reading about U verse. Continue reading

Trying to Figure out What I Can Afford to Pay for

If I get my own place that would make my girlfriend a lot happier. She hates the guys that I have been sharing a house with and obviously they are loud and annoying, rather like most other guys when you get down to it. At any rate those guys are not the most pleasant characters in the world to live with, but at the end of the month they always have their share of the rent and the power bill and so forth. They rarely even drink my beer, which is nice. I am looking at sites like and shopping around for the best prices on internet service right now. That is where this stuff gets tricky.

Is DSL As Bad As People Say It Is?

It has been a long time since I had a DSL and that was for a very brief amount of time. I think it was six or seven years ago and I wanted to save money. It was cheap, but the amount of internet that I got and the reliabliity of the service were both very poor. However it is true that you can get cheap DSL for like twelve or fifteen dollars a month. That is less than one quarter of what I am paying for cable internet service right now. Of course in theory my internet is probably worth what I pay for it, if you are the cable company. Continue reading

Why Adding SpyHunter 5 Adds to Your PC Protection

One of the reasons that I recommend a helper program to whatever antivirus program you have is because of malware and spyware that gets missed. If you use something such as SpyHunter 5, it adds to your protection. People like different brands of antivirus programs. There is a wide variability of their effectiveness because of several factors. One is the virus definitions they have. The program needs to know what to look for. A big company will be up on what is coming down the Pike as far as viruses are concerned. They then do updates to have your software look for it. Depending on the operating budget of the company, your updates may come in slow or fast for the latest threats.

Another issue is the actual engine that runs the antivirus program. Not all of them are the same. Continue reading

Playing Around with This Side Job

Visit my website for more information about Photoshop free downloadI have a job of course, but it is a really boring one. In effect they pretty much keep more people around than they need for the whole forty hour work week. Instead we have enough people to get the work and bust on it until it is done and then we sit around and wait for more. It is stuff that we do in a very short time if we all gang up on it, after that we all get bored. I got a photoshop cs6 free download on my work computer the other day and started playing around with it. Of course in theory it is not much different from what I am getting paid to do. It is designed to edit photos and my computer is set up for editing video. Mostly we are making commercials and stuff that is similar in content and concept to commercials.
