When you are playing on a PC instead of a console, there’s no guarantee that the game will run, most of them do it well. Here is one of the most common problems while PC gaming and how to fix it:

Artifacts or glitches, can be easily identified by a graphical weirdness. The image will look pixelated or colored, if you have these problem chances are that the video card is cluttering the information that has been receiving from the game, check if you have an outdated driver, and nevertheless check if other gamers have had the same problems you did and the possible solutions to it.

4. About lag while gaming

Another one and this one is particularly annoying because it can be really subtle, YES, we are talking about the online lag, for example, you are fighting and you start pushing the buttons and nothing happens, right after a moment everything starts to happen but your opponent is no longer there, this is call online lag. The main reason for this one is the internet connection. How fast is your broadband? If you know you will have a low connection while you are on the WIFI, try connecting on Ethernet.

5. Screen Tearing

The last one on the list is when you faced with screen tearing – you can detect if you are having this problem because the screen will look like the bottom part of it has split leaving you with the bottom and top half. The principal reason for  this situation is that you had played too much. Most of the computers refresh their images 60 Hz per second, if you don’t want to encounter this kind of problem, think of buying a PC gaming monitor that are usually around 120hz per second (these are the number of frames per second).

Be careful while buying gaming stuff online. There are many sellers that don’t offer quality products (like video games, used consoles, controllers, PC’s, bad deliveries, etc.) You need to check the seller’s reputation, maybe reading some reviews from his old clients or checking his profile. There are many websites and tools that can help you to avoid this issues like ShipDig that will track your order’s postal service, location, addresses, hours, phone numbers, etc.

And finally, if you are a gamer or you just want to have fun, enjoy it! There are many reasons why gaming raises your happiness levels and reduce the stress. Hope you found it useful and now just star gaming like a pro.

5 Killer Online Journal Tools That Make Journaling Easier and More Fun

5 Killer Online Journal Tools That Make Journaling Easier and More Fun

Journaling is one of the most useful personal development tools around. Not only does it help us process emotions and experiences, work through internal conflicts and improve our self-awareness, it also provides us with a way to keep a day-to-day record of our lives. Traditionally an activity limited to pen and paper, the expansion of consumer technology has enabled journaling to go digital.

Saving your journaling entries online enables you to access them from anywhere, without having to carry a notebook and pen around, and provides you with digital features, like tagging and search functions.

Here are a list of five online journaling tools you can use to bring your practice into the modern age:

1. 750words

750 words

    750words is a free online journaling tool created by Buster Benson. The site is based on the idea of “Morning Pages”; a journaling tool Julia Cameron suggests in her creativity course The Artist’s Way. Cameron advises aspiring creatives to start each morning with three pages of stream-of-consciousness writing to clear away the mental clutter, leaving you with a clearer mind to face the day.

    750 words is the three-page digital equivalent (assuming the average person writes 250 words per page) and lets you store all your journaling online. Each morning, you’ll receive a prompt asking you to write your 750 words, and the site keeps track of various statistics associated with your entries. The site uses a Regressive Imagery Dictionary to calculate the emotional content from your posts and provides feedback on features like your mood, and most commonly used words.

    750 words is simple to set up and is ideal for anyone who finds it challenging to maintain a consistent journaling practice. The site uses a number of incentives to motivate users, including animal badges awarded to journalers who complete a certain number of days in a row, leader boards, and opt-in monthly challenges.

    2. Ohlife

    ohlife

      Ohlife is designed to make online journaling as easy as possible. Once you’ve signed up for your free account, the website will send you an email each day asking “How did your day go?” Simply reply to the email with as much or as little detail as you like, and your response will be stored on your account, ready to view next time you log in.

      Ohlife’s appeal lies in its simplicity: no stats, no social sharing, no complicated organisational systems—the site is designed to provide you with a private, online space. Simply respond to the email each day (or skip the days you’re busy) and Ohlife will do the rest.

      3. Oneword

      oneword

        OneWord is a fun online tool that provides you with a single word as a prompt and gives you sixty seconds to write about it. The concept’s aim is to help writers learn how to flow, and the prompts range from the everyday mundane to the profound.

        Oneword is not a private journaling tool: if you sign up, your answers will be published on the site’s daily blog, which contains a stream of users’ answers, and might be used by Oneword in the future. If you’d rather keep your answers to yourself, you can still use the tool for fun without giving out any personal details.

        4. Penzu

          Penzu is a journaling tool that allows you to store your journaling notes online. The service also offers mobile apps for iOS, Android and Blackberry, so you can journal on the go and save your notes to your account. The basic service is free, however you can upgrade to Penzu Pro and get access to additional features, including military-grade encryption and the ability to save and sync data through your mobile, for $19 per year.

          With either version of Penzu, you can insert pictures, and add tags and comments to entries, as well as search for older entries. You can set your posts to be private and viewable by you only, or share them with others.

          5. Evernote

          Evernote isn’t a purpose-built journaling tool, however its features make it perfect for keeping your journaling notes in one safe place. With the ability to keep separate “notebooks”, tag your entries, include pictures, audio and web clipping, Evernote will appeal to journalers who want to include more formats than just text in their entries.

          Available online within a web browser, and as a stand-alone desktop app, the service also comes with a series of mobile apps covering almost every device available. These allow you to make notes on the go and sync between the mobile and browser versions of the app.

          For additional features, including text recognition and the ability to collaborate on Notebooks, you can upgrade to Evernote’s premium service, which costs $5 per month.
