Just to show you how awesome this month's giveaways are IMNSHO, I have highlighted in green all of the software I personally purchased and use, orange for stuff I asked for and got, and Teal for stuff on my "purchase when funds available" list.

AI Roboform (discount):     
AM-Notebook (discount):    
Backup4All Professional (discount):    
BB Flashback 1.5 (discount):    
Beyond Compare (discount):    
Camtasia Studio:    My employer purchased this at our request
Directory Opus (discount):    
Double Killer Pro (discount):    
Direct Access (discount):    
FontCreator Professional (discount):    
FontExpert 2007 (discount):    
Genie Backup Manager Pro (discount):    
GoodSync (discount):    
Help & Manual 4 Professional: < I always wanted this but didn't have the cash, and I won it in a previous giveaway.
Local Website Archive (discount):    
MainType (discount):    
My Life Organized (discount):    
NoteZilla (discount):    
novaPDF Professional (discount):    
PerfectDisk Professional (discount):    
RecentX (discount):    
SnagIt (TechSmith):    
Super Flexible File Synchronizer (discount):    
SyncBackSE and Onlick Utilities (discount):    
TechSupport Alert Premium 12 month subscription:    
True Launch Bar (discount):    
Website-Watcher Business (discount):     < non-business version
XPlorer^2 (discount):

That's 22 out of 28 I personally have "endorsed". This is quite an impressive list. And two things are the main contributers to why this is possible. 1) The hard work of cthorpe & mouser. 2) The reputation DonationCoder has earned by the great community that calls this home. Vendors see the benefits this site provides to point out quality software and bring them customers because of that.

Now please excuse me while I go put in my requests for the teal software in the January GiveAway.

Indeed! The selection of discounts and giveaways is just wondrous, thanks mouser and cthorpe! :up: Although, like tinjaw, I'm already using a number of these great apps, which makes my choice a little easier.

In all cases, the discount applies to whatever version is available for sale at the site.  In many cases, you can use the code for upgrade purchases, additional licenses, or other programs offered by the developer.  As for giveaways, they will also be the latest version.

I won FontExpert 2006 on a previous giveaway. I love it!

It's the only font manager I have come across that doesn't hijack file associations.

I have tried other font managers that do that and what is worse is how uninstalling those other ones never repair the association properly, which can be pretty tough to fix manually.

FontExpert will still allow you to open fonts in the default Windows font viewer without any fussing. I like that a lot.  :Thmbsup:

I am in the habit of dropping a copy of a font I use for banners & buttons into the folder with the blanks for websites I am working on. Much easier than trying to remember what I used and then finding it in my collection again when I need to make a new button. Also faster to temp install a font by just opening it in the Windows font viewer and minimizing it.

Even though FontExpert is a great app for viewing and temp installing fonts, and can really help a lot with making decisions for what font to use in a project, once the choice is made it's still faster & easier to open the font with the system's built in viewer when all you need is to put a single word on a new button later on. I don't think there is any app that will ever replace that for me and I am glad FontExpert lets me still do what I want, how I want.

I have a huge collection of fonts (over 12,000!). I never really got much use from a huge collection like that till I started using FontExpert. If you have a lot of fonts like me, you NEED this application...so try it out while there is a discount for it.  ;)

That's right.  Look for the drawing to close at or around midnight Central Standard Time with winners posted shortly afterwards.
