Excel Invoice Manager Pro, by Office-Kit.com is a cool tool that utilizes Microsoft Excel to help you produce invoices and more. The program uses what the developer calls "Active-Template" technology which help integrate the program right in with Excel. I found the program to be very easy-to-use and the user interface was intuitive. That makes it perfect for users with all levels of experience. Believe me, I'm no expert at Excel so if I say it's "easy-to-use " you can believe it. The program comes with a template you can use for creating invoices and it was a snap to crank out several with no problems at all.

Excel Invoice Manager Pro not only puts an invoice in a nice-looking format without you doing a lot of work, but it also adds up all the numbers so you get a total at the end. For anyone who needs to do invoices and the like who isn't an expert at Excel, this is a perfect product. It utilizes a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) interface so you'll know your work is always going to look picture perfect. The program has quite a few configurable options and can keep all your billing and invoices in a database once the program is registered. Nice features.

Excel Invoice Manager Pro is a powerful tool that adds functionality to a powerful tool. While I can find my way around in Excel, I'm certainly not a "wizard" with it. This product adds power to Excel by making it truly easy to create invoices and more. So, if you use Microsoft Excel and have the need to do invoices check this product out. I think it may be just what the doctor ordered.


Web Log Storming, by Dataland Software is an excellent product that you can use to easily analyze the Web logs provided by you ISP. The program is loaded with features and was easy-to-use at the same time. In testing it out I was impressed with the range of information it could provide. I was able to look at page views, downloads, and more. The program lets you see Web data in graphs that are interactive. You can examine what each, individual user did on your site while also being able to see the bigger picture as far as Web traffic patterns on your site.

Web Log Storming lets you "filter" the available data so you can see exactly what you want and need. This is a tool you can use to see just how your Web pages are working, or if they are. That way you can make changes based on information, not hunches. The program can export the reports it creates to HTML so you can view them in a browser. Another slick feature will send the reports by e-mail. I've looked at a number of log analysis tools, and this is one of the nicest I've seen. So, if you'd like to analyze your Web logs and make sense of your online traffic, take a good look at Web Log Storming. It may be just what you need!


Pipeline, by Superluminal is a really cool game that was one of my Quick Picks not long ago. I don't review many games anymore, but this one caught my eye and it was well worth my time. I like games that are challenging and that make you think. The game starts out and it seems like it should be simple. All you have to do, when the water starts to flow, is channel the water through a system of pipes that you create. Keep the water in the pipes and every pipe connection gives you more points. Should be a snap, right? Wrong!

Pipeline, for me anyway, is one of those games where I just had to keep going back to see if I could do better. You see, in order to move to the next level you have to get enough points. Easier said than done. As you play the game you start to find that not only is it not as easy as it sounds, but that takes some real strategy too! To keep things interesting the game goes way beyond just water and pipes. You start to encounter things like manholes, sprinklers, keys, and lots more. You have to think quickly in order to keep ahead. And remember, to get to each, new level you need more points.

Pipeline is a game that's fun and challenging for the whole family. The full version has 90 levels and also comes with a map maker. That means you can create your own levels and just keep on playing. Trust me, it won't be easy. So, if you'd like a game that has cool graphics and sound while providing a challenge, take a look a Pipeline. You won't be disappointed.


Magic Match, by Codeminionis another game that was one of my Quick Picks a short time ago. This is a really interesting puzzle game that could keep you busy for hours. The program has excellent graphics, neat sounds, and some very nice music. This is not your father's "puzzle game." It's loaded with all kinds of neat characters in the Lands of Arcane. You solve the countless puzzles, obtain treasure, and make your way through the game.

Magic Match has lots things that will get in your way and try to halt your progress, while also having a nice array of powerups. I was impressed with the thought given to the storyline and the graphics. Really beautifully done. So, if you'd like to play a game that's a bit different, check it out. Great graphics and sounds, as well as puzzles that will make you think. Hey, you even get a "sidekick" and his name is "Giggles." Give it a try, I think you'll like it!
