Newsletter for March 8th, 2010
"March Madness"





1. Newsletter Editorial

Hi all, Darwin here with the latest DC newsletter. It's been a month since our last edition and there has been a lot of activity at DC and on the forum.  We've got a software giveaway and drawing to tell you about and our usual newsletter content - DC software updates and forum highlights from the past month.

Last newsletter mouser told us that ehtyar is taking some time off from writing his Tech news letter (see last section of this newsletter for links). Stephen66515 stepped into the breach to keep the newsletter coming. Now I'm writing to let you know that Stephen is the new official discount coordinator at DC. You can read Mouser's official announcement via the link below.  This month's discount is on True Launch Bar, an application dock/launchbar.  Thank you VERY much, Stephen!

Mouser also recently started a thread about Flattr, which is a new micropayment system. Read mouser's introduction and the discussion that follows here and perhaps weigh in with your opinion. Remember, DC credits function in a similar way, you can always send a poster some credits to let them know that you enjoy reading their posts or to thank them if they've posted something that has helped you out in some way.



2. User-to-User: Your Input Requested

DC is a user centred community. There are over 200,000 registered members, and yet only a fraction are active. We welcome everyone's participation on the forum, no matter what your level of computer knowledge or how long you've been a DC member. So, if you're still waiting to make your first post, check out the links below for some good places to jump in.



3. DonationCoder Software Updates

Mouser has released a new version of FARR (Find a Run Robot), and the CircleDock team is busy as always; plus ewemoa continues his FARR plugin coding marathon..



4. Website Discoveries, Debates, and Discussions

Check out some of the latest web finds that people have posted on the forum. You'll find tech news and discussions about software, technology, and tech issues.



5. Fun, Games and Amusements on the Web

Congratulations! You've made it half way through the newsletter! Take a breather and check out some of DC's lighter side. Included for your enjoyment are some links to games and a link to a mini-review of a Nintendo DS title, "Zelda Spirit Tracks".



6. General Software Discussion   

This is one great resource if you're trying to solve a software or hardware related problem. We get so much traffic on this board that we've split the recent content into two sections in the newsletter - general software and specific software and hardware discussions.



7. Specific Software and Hardware Discussion

Here are some discussions about specific software and hardware issues and finds.



8. Developer's Corner

The Developer's Corner, sounds scary, doesn't it?! However, it is not. You'll find all sorts of subjects being discussed in here - everything from what programming language to use for a particular project to how to market a product on the web. In short, there's more to this corner of DC than you might think. I bet you'll find something relevant to you, even if you can't code your way out of a paper bag.



9. News You Can Use

Thank you again, Stephen, for taking over the reins from ehtyar while he enjoys a much deserved break from TechNews.

Time and again I am very glad you folks take the time to show folks like me what they might have missed. The newsletters are a very important err "something" for me to stay in touch with the fine DC community.

So far every newsletter revealed at least two threads that where interesting, cool, important, funny, or in other ways relevant to my interests. These newsletters really add value to our forum (value := chance of interaction).

Thank you Darwin and the other newsletter editors!
