hah, they're the four i get  cheesy
well, no, - they're the four I get that I more or less always read smiley

Ah, I read Daves Computer Tips as well -
has an offer of 20% discount for Acronis True Image with current issue [EDIT: offer available in current newsletter]
Might be a bit basic for average dc reader/member undecided but, e.g. did a very good spyware tests a while back & does
regular tips & tricks for Word and Open Office.
[EDIT: Also even though he starts basic (phew) he does go into things in great detail - I learning lots]

TechRepublic have various newsletters - I get the WinXP one
but dont read it that much..
some interesting articles though & often interesting comments on site
(seems to be aimed at IT people but often have quite basic stuff too - yeah even for me!)

I get the paid versions of both Gizmo's TechSupport Alert Newsletter and Windows Secrets Newsletter (have they done away with the paid version recently?).

And Scot's Newsletter, which is going to be a blog in a while, adopting a similar system to DC's own newsletter. Hmmm, considering that Gizmo's newsletter is being blocked by Yahoo! spam filter, maybe it's a good option.

Ehm, no, Windows Secrets continues to have a paid version, but it's not as featured in the normal newsletter as before.

Yup - you're right, of course, Lashiec. The newsletter still arrives in my mailbox and lets me know which "bits" are in the paid version only. They've really downplayed its prominence on the site, though, haven't they?

Yes, they did it when they redesigned the site and the newsletter as well, that was one or two years ago. I can't remember if it was before or after Fred Langa jumped aboard though. I suppose they did it because the paid part is supposedly geared to 'professionals', system administrators and such, but that's being short sighted IMHO as most content featured there is also of interest to home users.
