Newsletter for October 7th, 2008
Codename "Tech News Weekly"


"If you read nothing else on our site, why bother to read this?"
(new rss feed with images)




1. Newsletter Editorial

Greetings! We hope that this (tardy) newsletter finds you well. We'd like to start by reprising our reminder from the last newsletter about the new "Member Map". Follow the link below to take a look at it and, if you haven't already done so, add yourself! This is a fun way to see where everyone is - putting places to names, so to speak.

A month or so ago, mouser and veign awarded an MSDN Visual Studio Bundle to longtime DC member Eoin O'Callaghan. It was a very tight race, though, and they almost awarded it to new DC member VideoInPicture. Another bundle became available and they have recognized the contributions that VideoInPicture has already made in such a short time by awarding it to him. See the link below to read mouser's announcement and join us in congratulating VideoInPicture (Eric Wong).

We'd also like to highlight DC member Ehtyar's Tech News Weekly threads, posted in the Living Room section of the forum. He highlights interesting technology and software stories and is seeking input on refinements that he has made to the layout. While you're reading the thread, check out 40hz' cool graphic and weigh in on the suggestion that a dedicated child board be started!

Finally, in the northern hemisphere we welcome with mixed feelings the arrival of fall. For our southern friends spring is here!



2. Your Participation Requested

Jump right in, go on, you know you want to... If you need some inspiration for your first post, look no further than the following threads. We'd love your input!



3. Help and Advice from Member to Member

No, this is not an agony-Aunt column! However, if you need get some input on tech related issues and decisions, the DC forum is a great place to turn. Read on for some recent discussions and feel free to join in the conversation or post an issue of your own.



4. Fun And Games

Work, work, work, work... Yawn! We can't be serious all the time... Let's have some fun!



5. The Weird Wide Web

Here are some recent items from around the web that Donationcoders thought were noteworthy. As always, your input is encouraged, so if you come across something interesting while you're surfing the web, feel free to post a link to it.



6. Software Discussion

A love of software is the glue that binds us together at Donationcoder. Here are some recent threads of interest:



7. DC Software and Member Contributions

There is a lot of quality software available on Donationcoder, all of it coded by our members. Read below for some recent announcements and discussion.



8. Coding Snacks and Member Contributions

Coding snacks are lite treats for the software afficionado. All you have to do is ask... Post a clear description of what you're looking for and one of DonationCoder's resident coding gurus might just take up the challenge.



9. Developer's Corner

The Developer's Corner is more than just a forum for the discussion of software development, it's also a place in which entrepreneurial issues can be discussed.

Veign's "One question" thread wasn't posted until after the newsletter was ready - I just didn't get around to posting it until later in the day.

You guys and gals (?) at DonationCoder are simply great. There is something for me anytime you get by. I have used Fine Print for the past several years. I remember how I used it to produce a pocket revision manual for my graduate exams. Fine Print has served me well but I have just downloaded priPrinter for a trial.

Kudos for always bringing me next to the cutting edge.
