With the remaining dough create a base by placing a small blob of cookie dough top of each cup of an upside-down muffin tins.

Now cover the bottom of each cup with a circular cut out of dough and form your bowl till the whole thing in your fridge or freezer for about five to ten minutes to help your cookies keep their form. Bake it in the oven according to your recipe instructions and then while they cool down use a spoon to clean up the edges and reinforce the bowl shape before their set.

insert would popsicle sticks into each perfectly cut slice to create a mess free watermelon pop that your kids will love in the guests are sure to enjoy.

Most people know this one already but we want to remind you to stay hydrated during those hot summer days ahead. Fill an empty water bottle about a third full and put it in the freezer on its side once it’s frozen fill the rest with water for a longer lasting cold bottle.

the FDA does note that reusing plastic water bottles without washing them could possibly harbor bacteria but it doesn’t cause them to release carcinogenic dioxins into the fluids that they can take this was actually debunked by the American cancer society.

so if you’re still skeptical try this instant freeze trick instead place purified water in the freezer on its side for roughly three hours and carefully remove it once it reaches 32 degrees Fahrenheit.

now give it a good smack and watch science go to work now if you’re in need of additional electricity sources here’s a great way to keep extension cord plugs drive it happens to rain or if the ground is moist.

Your local hardware store should have pre cut 12 inch plywood rounds a carabineer and about 20 feet of outdoor Polly room. start by sanding the edges of your plywood slab now locate and Mark the center of the wood and drill a hole that’s about the width of your rope if your swing is meant to be a permanent fixture tie it directly to a be more tree branch.

Thicker rope is obviously more durable but tying nuts might be a bit difficult we added a carabineer so that you can easily take the rope swing down once the Rope is hanging in place feed the Rope to the ground and cut.

Another thing is to spend it playing fun mobile games like SimCity Buildit. It is one of the most fun RTS I have ever played and I am recommending to everyone especially now that you can get free cheats for it.

now push the Rope through the hole in the seat and adjust the height to your liking before tying a double knot under the seat leave a little tale of rope just in case you decide to adjust it later we suggest testing the swing before your kids do your new home made rope swing will be sure to encourage your kids to play outside and leave nothing short of smiles on their faces.

Pros and Cons for Hay Day – The Farming Game

Never let it be said that developers like SuperCell don’t understand farming game simulators. Plants and animals, planting and feeding, buying and selling; these are the staples of the genre where Hay Day belongs. Gamers have come to expect them, so developers and especially publishers hesitate to change up a tried-and-true formula. Hay Day by SuperCell follows just such a formula. It doesn’t break any new ground, but fans of farming simulator games on mobile probably won’t care — as long as they can get past some problems.

The 2D terrain graphics in Hay Day are attractive and well detailed, though nothing special. The other graphics are a mixed bag. The voice acting is absolutely atrocious, even worse than the dialogue the “actors” had to read. Together, they make talking to characters a painful experience akin to stabbing an ice pick in your chest. After only a few minutes of listening to it, most people would probably choose the ice pick. It is possible for the player to turn the voices off and not miss the quest dialogue, but considering how bad it is, this is only a marginal improvement.

The biggest problem with Hay Day hack, aside from the voice acting, is the difficulty of generating diamonds. Even on the easier of the and the early part of the game, so the player’s margin of error is very narrow. Inventory can’t be accessed unless the characters are in a the farm itself, nor can the player increase its ranks. This restriction doesn’t add anything to the game and really makes it more difficult for no reason.

Not all is bad in Hay Day. The game ships with multiplayer support for online online gameplay. Multiplayer is similar to the single-player but with so much features added. Getting into a game is very easy, and Hay Day has plenty of choices for selecting different faces and bodies. Something not seen before is how plants and animals actually change the way a farm looks. Choosing a higher exp plants will make the leveling faster.

As with most farming simulator games, the thrill of gaining more experience points and finding better items, products, and leveling are addictive enough that some people might be able to put up with the difficulty. With a patch to fix the issues mentioned in Hay Day, players will surely enjoy the game more.

Konami’s vs EA’s Soccer Game – You Decide!

Konami’s venerable ISS soccer franchise has been abandoned in name only. Taking, for the US market, the less desirable MLS nomenclature, it’s still the same incredible, fast-paced and fluid soccer sim at heart. There are some minimal problems with the licensing and the interface, but really, the only problem for PlayStation 4 fans is deciding between this stunning soccer sim and EA’s awesome FIFA. And that’s not an easy choice.

Graphically, at least, the choice is easy. EA’s FIFA 17 blog is, in most respects, a better-looking game. MLS just doesn’t have the same attention to detail, or even the charm that its popular competitor had. FIFA has better effects, comparable animation and much more attractive stadiums. Otherwise there’s not too much in it. Both games have similar options as far as camera angles are concerned, and are otherwise convincing-looking sims.

The gameplay is the big gulf here, and MLS again uses that classic fluid passing game found in all the previous Konami soccer titles. The controls, which use the Japanese configuration, are responsive and logical and designed to keep the pace of the game loose and fast. Tap backward on the control pad and hold the pass button briefly, and your player will make a sneaky backpass — which doesn’t confuse AI opponents, but against a second player, it works great.

The limits of the license — there are just 12 teams in the MLS, after all — are overcome somewhat by the inclusion of 53 international teams, although the players’ names have been changed to protect Konami’s licensing department. However, it’s possible to pair an MLS team against a world champion squad, like Germany vs. the San Jose Earthquake, for example. Which isn’t exactly fair…but does have hilarious consequences.

One truly unique feature is the bilingual commentary, provided in English by longtime ESPN announcer Bob Ley and in much more dramatic and engrossing Spanish by Louis “Goooooaaaaallllllll” Tapia. He gets a lot of credit for his long, drawn-out “Goal” yells, but he’s hardly the only commentator doing it. Tons of South, Central and North American TV commentators do that. Still, it all adds to the atmosphere. It’s just a shame that the original Japanese commentary wasn’t included.

The attention to detail throughout the game is adequate, but hardly mind-boggling — and there are a few bum notes, such as ugly angles for throw-ins and the less-than-convincing weather effects. At times, this doesn’t quite live up to the PS4 promise in quite the way FIFA does. There are a couple of other little things too, such as the default camera angle — it’s just a little too close in for comfort, although a generous and easily readable radar addresses that, as does the option to zoom out to any of three camera angles.

League, match and multiplayer modes are as you might expect, and while the package doesn’t offer any spectacular new genre-busting features, it does offer what this series always has: smoother, slicker gameplay than the competition. So now it’s back to our original argument: Is this better or worse than FIFA? Well, it’s a tough call. In terms of technical achievement and options, it would probably edge over towards FIFA — but for gameplay, we’re going to give a slight lead to MLS. Either way, you can’t really go wrong. Both are beautiful games, and MLS has a touch more rhythm.

Simplistic arcade action — but is that worth the $30 price tag?

Similar to the critically accepted Serious Sam, X-Com Enforcer is a straightforward arcade-ish action game. Move forward, kill enemies and repeat until done. While cleansing the levels of the alien menace, players will scrounge around for new technologies and hidden letters to unlock bonus minigames. That’s it; that’s the entire game. We figure the X-Com label has been tacked onto the game in order to lure in a few unsuspecting X-Com fans, but this could just as easily have been an X-Files game as X-Com. Both series are equally unrelated to the gaming experience players will find, and both have aliens. That’s not to say the game isn’t fun. In a repetitive mind numbing kill-a-thon manner, it’s a good time. Is it a $30 (120 quarters) good time? No.

The concept is straightforward: A scientist from a defunct section of the X-Com organization has continued underground research on an alien-smashing robot. At the beginning of the game, he activates the robot to defend the lab — and you are that robot.

From the first minute of activation until the end credits you’ll kill aliens — hundreds and hundreds of aliens. They come in different varieties, of course, but they all die, and kill them you will. In a few levels you’ll do more than simply kill the aliens; you’ll also rescue humans. Thankfully this only involves running around the level finding humans and touching them. There is one level where you defend the humans too, but beyond rescuing and killing there are no other variations of level design. Wait, just remembered, occasionally you’ll run into a “boss”-level creature. Wowser!


You’ll be killing aliens for more than the mere saving of the world and joy of it; you’ll be killing for data points. Almost everything that can be shot gives off an amount of data points. Data points are spent between levels to upgrade technology on the Enforcer. One of the differences between the three levels of difficulty in Enforcer is the cost of technology upgrades. One powerup that unlocks new technologies and letters that spell BONUS are hidden on every level. Collect the letters to open up an extra minigame area at the end of the level. The minigames are actually pretty cool: A couple are based off of classic video games. For instance, there is a Pac-Man level where the Enforcer runs around collecting data points and avoiding the alien “ghosts;” there’s also a Frogger level where the Enforcer collects data points through lanes of traffic.

The graphics are decent — Enforcer is based off the Unreal engine, so it’s hard to make it look bad. It’s not a first-person shooter, though; instead it’s from a locked third-person isometric perspective. This is probably going to drive people nuts at times, because the camera cuts off so much of the level. More than once we wanted the ability to look UP! It’s especially annoying when you know the engine has been simplified in order to have this effect. Though I have found the graphics of this game above average,  I think Clash Royale, a free game, would still beat it. Apart from that you can have unlimited gems for the game which is kind of a nice. You can have by visiting

The game has a multiplayer mode and an Enforcer editor if “fans” out there want to design levels and such. No idea why this game is called X-Com — it’s more likely to piss off the hardcore X-Com fans than suck them in. Ah well, why not trash a brand once you’ve built it up right?

Serious Sam has set the mark for arcade action games on the PC: If you want to complete in that arena either make it cheaper or better. Unfortunately, this game does neither. Straightforward arcade action, it’s simply killing aliens — and if that’s your bag, it’s for you. Otherwise, take a pass on what is a black eye on the X-Com name.

Pillars of Eternity – New RPG

Probably the most main reasons of Kickstarter is the skill for customers to curate the products they need. If you have a sizable adequate interest in an undertaking for being prosperous, clients have a lead and quick role in the development of content. This offers resulted in the likes of Star Citizen turning into massive crowdfunded successes, although the space sim genre was viewed as niche and all sorts of however lifeless by larger organizations.

Recognized developers also have viewed the chance of Kickstarter and crowdfunding, utilizing the new payment device to produce video games outside the traditional improvement cycle. In September 2012, Obsidian Entertainment introduced intends to produce Pillars of Eternity, a CRPG (computer RPG) emulating the spirit of the old Black Isle and Infinity Engine titles. With Obsidian created out of the closure of the commended facilities, the commitment of a return to the well-loved genre acquired Pillars of Eternity over 77,000 backers and $4 million in financing, conserving Obsidian along the way.

Keeping that in mind, it’s easy to understand exactly what Obsidian is targeting with Pillars of Eternity. It’s a video game with obvious origins in the same tabletop-ruled titles that created Black Isle king, with broad strokes of Icewind Dale, Planescape: Torment and the BioWare-developed Baldur’s Gate. It’s most apparent with the gameplay technicians, where there is an acquainted and soothing rigidity, and the capability to stop and think purposefully as opposed to counting on free-flowing action.


Significant amounts of attention and care has become positioned on the game’s art direction too, with wonderful places made with a hand-painted visual. Particular efforts are positioned on producing the more distinctive areas of Pillars of Eternity’s world stick out, with the adra – a kind of living, glowing rock – sitting lively against grim, dark backdrops. The outcome is equally as immersive because it was at the days of Icewind Dale, with the impact of a deep dream world similar to the artwork of Frank Frazetta.

Another component that ties Pillars of Eternity to its RPG forefathers is the difficulty. Pillars of Eternity can be hard to those who’re not really acquainted with the gameplay kind of the original Infinity Engine RPGs that has a lot to get within a short period of time. Gamers will need to mind their environment for barriers and bottlenecks, and also the random component to fight causes lots of tension. Those going back to the isometric CRPG style will discover it much convenient, especially provided that the game’s normal trouble is targeted at those currently proficient with the genre.

Pillars of Eternity isn’t really as unforgiving as its predecessors, nevertheless, with introductory amounts that relieve gamers into particular gameplay mechanics, even while including gamers into the fundamentals of the story. Whilst an ordinary issues Baldur’s Gate playthrough will finish just outside Candlekeep along with some bad luck, there isn’t any

Long Distance Wi-Fi – Up to 25 KILOMETER range

This is some cool stuff that we got going on right here was to share the gigabit internet connection we have here at the office with my house which is about 20 kilometers or about 13 miles away unfortunately topography. We would need a 60 meter antenna tower at the office in order to achieve that so we are going back to square one with this video and we are going to structure this segment and we’re calling this one long distance Wi-Fi the master case 5 by Cooler Master gives you the freedom to truly make your mid tower pc case your own with a variety of modular parts and accessories.

Learn more so this is the power B may see a device that I assume would be a lot more expensive than it was I mean ubiquity send it to us so I had to look up how much it costs it’s only about a hundred and fifty bucks and with the kit you actually get a variety of things you get this weather resistant plastic shell cover you get. This metal dish you get Miss Pole now right here you get this fascinating rear housing do dad you get this thing which is like amount for the other mount to melt the other thing with degrees on it and then you get to the antenna feed this is where the action happens. You also get a power over Ethernet adapter an injector thing as well because it is powered using PE so on the side of this guy you’ve got your power as well as your link indicator and then four bars to indicate the speed of the link and that’s pretty much.

You get two of them because the point of the Power Beam AC is to be able to handle a 415 megabit link add up to 25 kilometers now we are not going to be able to mount these puppies up high enough in order to test that maximum range but what we can do is we can at least do a limited test. The parking lot and find out if the objective was to share a network connection with someone quite far away whether it’s a shed or whether it’s a neighbor or whether it’s from your office to your house if you happen to live somewhere platter. Whether this technology looks pretty promising so the assembly process is pretty straightforward you take your antenna feed and start with this bracket you take this bad boy and it only goes in one way, then you take your pulled out stick it through the thing and finally optionally you can put on the weather proofing out something that I would definitely recommend.

Please note in this was pointed out to me by my editor the last time around when we did this before our SD card I pound that this arrow corresponds to be sure there was an arrow at this arrow right here. If you wanted to go on relatively easily now normally you have some kind of a pull down. You go ahead you put that on the pole and then you’d tighten it in and it would grip like that but because we don’t have a pole at least not that kind of hole you know what I mean we’re just going to go ahead and clamp it to a C stand for our initial testing. So the period after is optional if you have a power over Ethernet switch but not everyone has one of those so we’re going to show it using the adapter. We have power then from there without dropping it you plug into the network ports of a computer so we are configuring our internet protocol version four settings 192.168 .1. Anything other than 20 or over 250 for whatever it is I’m going to go with 10 subnet mask with the leaders default. We’re logged into arrow s7 so the first thing it tells you to do is change your password I wish that more companies did this where they actually force you to change your password before you can do pretty much anything else. But they don’t and such as life so now what we need to do is we have to configure it with a static IP address that is on the same subnet as the rest of our network. So let’s make it that and configuration mode is simple we actually have to change almost none of the settings on this bad boy to get it up and running which is very cool. So now that we’ve reconfigured our network settings we can go ahead and plug into an Ethernet cable that is on the rest of the network that we want to share and then I’m switching back to my Wi-Fi here because I’m going to use this direct attached able to set up the other additional minute but now we should be able to navigate to it at the new address that I’ve set for it wicked. So now that this is set up we’re going to go to a wireless and we are going to set up the mode so this is going to be stationed. It was actually already correct the SSID we can make whatever you want this is kind of like just a normal wireless hotspot for all intents and purposes here then I am going to turn our output power way down. Because we’re testing at Mary close range and I’m going to leave pretty much everything else on auto accept security. So I’m just going to put a rudimentary password on.

Which is better than nothing and I’m going to save my changes so as soon as this dish. We go detects long-range SSID with the correct password it should connect to it and we should have a link first we need to hook up the other dish or configure it rather than how damn that hurt. It is highly recommended to configure these while you are still very close to them. Not after you have deployed them 25 kilometers apart so we’re logged into our second unit now what we’re going to do is set up our network settings us differently from the last one so instead of point 64 we’re going to go point 66 so we have to go ahead and put this one then on to the name network.

We are very close actually, so we are on our last step now we’ve got a wireless on the second unit this one is access and it appear so the SSID we used was long range and leaving everything on auto turning the output power so the further the distance the more important perfect alignment is but if this kind of distance it really doesn’t matter much. So I’m going to plug in my peewee injected powered thing so this guy gets power and then what you should see on that side if you go around the side of the dish is in a moment. The Decatur should light up there we go all right rock on. So now we’ve got a link let’s test it out, so now what we do is we go back and change those custom network settings we go back to automatic everything deputy block to be done I’m plugged from the laptop into my puny injector into the dish. Which is connected to the dish which is connected to the server room which is not disoriented at all from there we should be able to get an internet connection.

Now speed test isn’t always a solid indicator for us around, I don’t know what it is exactly but the good news is that we’re seeing very consistent results here at least trooper and while not 450 megabit per second and the wow the upload is going much better than the down link. That’s very interesting we are still seeing speeds that are pretty darn reasonable looking for our dish Wi-Fi else we got. They have other tests – so we have that they have their own internal speed test so you can go ahead and go, I want to you on this one is my username and password and start and this will tell you the just raw receive and transmit speeds between the two units and we have a solution.

This is a portable battery bank doesn’t look exceptional that’s where charges boom AC outlet so we’re going to use that to power the dish at the other end of the parking lot now there is one more tool we’re going to need that. I didn’t show you guys before this is really cool this is the align antenna tool so you can see the signal levels are in real time so watch as I move the dishes so they are more towards each other and me theoretically signal strength improves there goes my battery bank.

I hope that didn’t break, this is a lot heavier than I had hoped you guys should help you. It’s fine I got this I get it camera people union can actually left a bloody finger to help me with anything, sorry I got this I’m just going to start hiking so with poor alignment at the lowest possible strength we are still seeing about 200 megabit per second up and down and that’s what the head standing right in the way of the intended way to go ahead. Actually didn’t go down much so inside the building you had to make pretty big changes to the dish alignment in order to really affect this. I am barely even touching it so here we are way down the road still enjoying that was pretty much the same speed test we were doing on the down link and however confusing this might be it actually seems to be running a little bit faster on the uplink so there you go you can interpret that. I’m sure with all of some tuning we could actually get better speeds out of it particularly down there’s probably something where I don’t really know what I’m doing but in spite of ubiquity offering to have one of their engineers help me I was like, I want to see if I can do it let’s see what kind of a result someone can get just following the most basic rudimentary guide.
