Boomshine is one cool mindless yet pleasantly addicting time killing game. Created by Danny Miller Boomshine is a simple game where you strategically click the cursor to create a chain reaction to destroy as many floating dots as possible. Wait? Clicking your mouse and watching dots is fun? Surprisingly yes! Each level gets more difficult and reaching level 12 is the goal. Much time can be killed by destroying floating dots and listening to a mellow ambience of looped Music background by Tim Halbert.

Another great game from Armor Games and created by Marcel Stein. This game is basically a variation on tower defense games such as Desktop Tower Defense. In Antbuster you defend your picnic food from an ant hill full of plenty of ants ready to take away your food.

Here we can take a look at the installation process and show some features pf the application. Keep in mind this project is still in beta and is available on Windows and Mac.
So you’ve picked out the parts you want, and put the computer together… so now we need to power it on and start setting things up. Sure, you could drop your install cd in the drive, but you’ll have better luck if you check a few BIOS settings and run some tests first, both of which we’ll cover here.
For regular readers of my blog, you know that I am almost fanatic about the audio players I use on my PC as is evident with my iTunes rant. I have covered several different players, and currently my player of choice is J River Media Jukebox. Today I am going to cover another audio player I have been trying out the past few weeks, COWAN America’s Jet Audio Player.
