This Donation Coder mug shows as $101.99 ... is it made of gold and diamonds or is there an error in that price? :)

I know, such a stupid question but...

It's not a stupid question.. the prices are set high in the shop so that people don't buy those items.  We prefer to give them away as presents rather than sell them.

And here I thought they were priced high like those PBS pledge drive deals where you pledge $100 and they give you a $10 VHS movie. (Maybe I shouldn't have mentioned it.  Might give you ideas.) :)

Hmmmmmmm, like perhaps a genuine placebo aphrodisiac? ;)
Or maybe a % ownership in the Brooklyn Bridge(tm) ?

Hey - weren't some Total Commander licenses donated?  I know that some of them were being awarded for Mini-reviews, but I thought a couple were going to the semi-random giveaway draw (which aligns much better with my level of laziness).

I will decide who will receive my part of keys (5 of them) on Tuesday or Wednesday. If there will be more that 5 reviews from May to Tue/Wed, it will be by simple draw. If not, first 5 people will gain them. 2 or 3 days left for lazy members ;)

Giving the rest of them will be up to mouser.

Aw, man...  no one ever gives us lazy bums a break!

One day I might do something about that. 


Nah...

Hi Folks,

Wasn't there something said about mini-reviews ?  To encourage us PC not-really-coder-yet folks ?

(Are there two groups of FIVE each !! ?  Amazing. Even one five is really generous. Thanks either way.  I'm getting tired of 1-2-3 .. TC is so kewl I want to find a nice discount and buy .. or even better .. win a freebie !  .. (Free Commander is nice too, but it simply is not the same. One of the very best freewares and one of the very best friendly-sharewares. Hmmm.. we could use a Free Commander review ! :) .. nahh.. surely the Freeware Genius has that covered.)  Actually I think NoteZilla could use a real review, it has the potential to be the first real new-way-of-doing-stuff program in a while, for me at least.  I sent some notes to the author, but he is away till .. tomorrow.)

If so, 2 or 3 days from Sat would sound like an extension !! Yeah.  All the way to Monday or Tuesday, anything before the Wednesday thing.  

but.. but .. are the mini-reviews still in the mix  ? .. or is it just coding snacks ?   The problem is .. I don't think I can easily become a good PC coder in 2 days, expanding from my mini-computer and dabbling with database stuff.

Well anyway, tell us the precise parameters !! (in English, not C++). Thanks !

Shalom,
Steven

(who thinks very highly of Total Commander, and remembers the original XTree and used "POP" on the System 36 and doesn't remember ever getting DOpus fully loaded even though one version was on one of those UK mags.)

Once again ;)

10 TC keys will be given to DC members:
- 5 for reviews - by me,
- 5 for snacks - by mouser.

We have agreed for some delay (Tue/Wed) hoping for more people to come after latest Newsletter.

As for me: I've decided that "my" deadline will be on Wednesday (3rd of June) at 6PM (GMT).

Huge congratulations to all the winners. This month's giveaway is especially cool for me because I was able to help the site out by securing those AntispamSniper licenses for giving away. :)

And 4wd, please revisit this thread when you get your mug so you can post a digital pic of the expression on your wife's face when she sees you open your package and hold your mug over your head in triumphant victory. :)
