Special Edition Mini-Newsletter for January 13th, 2008
Codename "Three Things"


"If you read nothing else on our site, read our BLOG"
(new rss feed with images)





Introduction to the Special Mini-Newsletter Edition

Greetings to everyone from the year 2008!  This is a special mini-version of our normal newsletter.  Instead of reviewing the best posts on the forum from the last few weeks like we normally do, this special edition will just briefly mention three new big things on our site this month that we wanted to draw to your attention.  We'll be back next month with our regular newsletter format.


1. New Apps for the New Year (N.A.N.Y.) 2008 - Programs Released

This month the coders on our site unveiled a dozen new freeware programs to welcome in the new year.  Some of the programs have received a lot of attention, and some are just plain strange.

Among the collection you'll find a unique new motivational program by mouser called Point Motivator, which let's you set up rewards and activities and track your progress towards achieving your own personal high score; a whimsical online tool that has taken the web by storm, CoinCalc.com, for estimating the value of the jar of coins on your shelf; a trio of very cool plugins for the Find and Run Robot program, and many more.




2. Best of the Web from 2007 - The Best Stuff You Never Saw

At the end of every year we always take some time to dig through the entire past year of posts on our forum, and create our annual "Best of the Web" retrospective roundup.

Over 46,000 posts were made on the forum in 2007, and from those posts a collection of some of the most entertaining discoveries and debates have been featured in our 2007 Best of the Web edition.  It's packed full of rare treasures you won't want to miss.




3. Massive January Shareware Giveaway+Discount Celebration

As part of our upcoming fundraiser and our three-year celebration of DonationCoder.com, we are excited to bring our supporting members a very special month of discounts and giveaways.

You'll find big discounts on some of the best shareware on the internet, plus a ton of copies to give away to our supporting members. The list includes the programs that you asked us to get discounts on, as well as new discounts and giveaways from some of our favorite companies.   A special thanks to DC member carl thorpe, who arranged for most of these discounts.

Neither of the TechSmith products show any links for "give away" of them. SnagIt & Camtasia Studio are both only available as 30day trials, unless I'm missing seeing a link for the 'give away'.
