NanoStar Siege Basic Strategy Guide

About a month ago, I discovered an action strategy game in Facebook called Nanostar Siege. It has been my favorite game in Facebook eversince. To get a basic information about how this game is played you can read the Nanostar Siege Guide that I've written earlier. But on this post we will talk about how to win the game more often.

Basic Strategy

As I have said before, there are three basic units in the game: swordsmen, archers, and slayers. Before the start of the battle you are allowed to choose which combination of units you will use, how many, as well as their formation. Let's talk about...

If the defender uses Archers as their front, the best unit to place infront of your own formation are Slayers. Slayers move fast. They will be able to close the gap with the archers very quickly.

If you use a swordsman to attack a frontline of Archers, you can be sure that your first two swordsmen will die before they reach the archers.

Swordsman moves very slowly as compared to Slayers.

If you are facing a frontline of Slayers. The best counter is to use Swordsmen with Archers behind them.

Other things you should know is that Slayers are the best unit when it comes to attacking structures. They can quickly diminish the morale of the opposing castle. And then the next best unit for attacking strutures are Swordsmen.

Archers, on the other hand, gives poor damage when attacking structures. That is why when Archers happen to be at the front hitting the other players castle, I just let them die so that my Slayers or Swordsmen can take over.

And now that you learn the basic strategies, it's time for you to learn more advanced tactics: How to Keep Winning in NanoStar Siege.

GIMP: How to Enable Wacom Pen Tablet

If you are doing digital graphics in Gimp, whether painting or simply drawing, it is best to use a pen tablet. Wacom is a recognized brand when it comes to pen tablets. Gimp does support it but it is not enabled by default.

How to Enable Pen Tablet Support

1. Launch Gimp using your pen tablet. Don't use the mouse to launch Gimp. If you do, Gimp won't detect it.

2. In the menu click Edit>Preference.

3. On the list click "Input Devices".

4. Click "Configure Extended Input Decives". Here is where Gimp gets weird. If you started Gimp for the first time using a mouse, it will say there are no available input device. But if you launched it using the pen tablet, you will see "Wacom Tablet Pressure Stylus" and "Wacom Tablet Eraser".

5. Click the Close Button

6. Click "Save Input Device Settings Now" so that the pen tablet will still be supported when you launch Gimp next time.

LED Monitor Review: LG FLATRON E2041

My Old AOC CRT Monitor began to show signs of dying. It would occasionally black out for a few seconds. Sometimes lightning streaks  would run across the screen.

I bought that monitor way back in 2006. It served me well for 5 years. It was very durable and AOC is a good brand.

And so I had no choice but to buy myself a new monitor. I would have preferred another CRT Monitor but they were no longer available. Even the more recent LCD screens are being phased out in favor a the newer LED monitors.


(This was not my first choice but it was the next best thing available in the computer store I visited).

My Feedback

This monitor comes with two connectors VGA and DVI.

It comes with a CD that is supposed to contain the manual and monitor drivers. However, when you install the monitor driver contained in the CD it will alway…

Cignal Digital TV Review

For a long time we've contemplated having a cable tv connection. But the problem is we are so far from the street that regular cable companies would usually say that it is impractical because they would need a very long cable to service us and that the quality degrades as the cable gets longer.

So one day someone came along offering Satellite based TV (Cignal) and we decided to subscribe.

Cignal Digital TV


1. No more need for long cables because the service is satellite based.

2. Video quality is better than other cable providers. You are only given a few HD channel depending upon your subscription but even the normal channels look so good, you would think they are also HD.

3. Comprehensive Channel Guide that is built into your remote control. You will find a button on your remote that reads “Guide”. After you press it. It will list the current channel you are watching and you will see what program or movie will come next and the hours. You can slide the guide using yo…
