11. New Coding Snacks
  • CPilot coded a cool tool called TaskbarFader: http://www.donationc...?topic=2553.0?ref=nl

  • JGPaiva responded to a request by Harrie and coded a useful abbreviation helper utility: http://www.donationc...?topic=2598.0?ref=nl
  • Please remember that when you see a little green $ next to someone's name in a forum post, you can make a donation to them directly if you want to thank them for help or for coding something, etc.  By supporting those who help out and contribute to the site, we will make the site a more useful place for everyone, and ensure that it continues to improve.  Remember that your donations are not just rewards for work well done, but think of it as funding continued future work and support.
  • Have an idea for a little utility you'd like implemented? Just request it!

12. Latest Discounts


IMPORTANT! Changes are Coming in March
The end of March will mark our one year anniversary (hooray)!  After that we will no longer be offering Charter Member accounts at our site.  All donors after the one year anniversary will be known simply as Supporting Members.  So if you want to be part of the founding members of DonationCoder.com, with all the benefits that may entail, you don't have much time left to make a donation before the new changes take effect..  And if you're already a member, don't miss this opportunity to tell your friends about our site!  Read More.

   





If you have good ideas about how to improve the newsletter or the site itself just reply to this post.

I believe there'll be a special anniversary thread later this month, so I'll won't say too much about how much I like DC here :)

A very interesting and useful newsletter this time around!  [Should I say "like always"?]  Now, if I just had the time and energy to contribute to the Forums...

You could also help with a donation every now and then and of course by spreading the word: http://www.donationc...dex.php?topic=1463.0

By the way, are you using one of skrommel's many coding snacks already? http://www.donationc...m/Software/Skrommel/

This newsletter came as a reenforcement to my opinion: Newsletters are very good readings, even if you've already seen everything in it.
Again, very well structured, no "hot" subjects were forgotten, and it's always good to have a "index" of what happened in each month.
Thanks, Mr. Mouser! As always, mission acomplished! :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup:

This is also a good way to tell your friends about DC.
If you've gotten the newsletter on the mail, redistribute it through everyone you know!
There is no better way to explain what DC is all about.

(BTW, good to know I'll have a "founding member" status!  :eusa_dance: :eusa_dance: :eusa_dance: )

As always it is a really nicely done newsletter.  It also helps to show you some of the older forum topics that got pushed down and possibly even forgot about.
