Newsletter for May 5th, 2011
"Calming Breeze"





1. Newsletter Editorial

Warmer weather and tornadoes seem to signal the beginning of summer in the Midwest, and it's time for another DC newsletter.  Since we last spoke the fundraiser wrapped up, with a whopping $14,239 donated by over 600 individual donors -- a huge success and enough to cover our hosting and administrative fees for the next two years.  Hooray! A giant thank you to everyone who donated, and cheered us on during the fundraiser and especially to those coders and writers on the forum who helped us make the fundraiser month something special.  And if you somehow missed the fundraiser don't forget that we accept donations year round.

Things have been understandably a little less raucous for the last month following the fundraiser -- so this will be a short newsletter.  And it woud be a great time for some of you first posters to introduce yourself on the forum or ask a question:


2. Software Updates

One of the prizes awarded during the fundraiser was some allocated programming hours by me on a project of the winner's choosing.  DC member Cranioscopical won and requested that I finally add image capture support to my clipboard tool (Clipboard Help+Spell).  I must admit I have been having fun adding the feature, and you'll find a new BETA release of CHS available for download with image capturing support working quite well.  You'll also find a link below to the new evolution of my Flipbook Printer program, called Flipbook Printer Suite 2.0 -- with full support for recording video in addition to printing flipbooks.



3. Discounts and Giveaways

Members of our forum frequently reach out to shareware companies and arrange software discounts and give-aways.  In addition, forum members are always on the lookout for discounts that they find on the web and they love to share with the rest of us.

This Month's Special Discounts and Giveaways:


4. Website Discoveries, Debates, and Discussions

What's new in cyberspace? What exciting new sites have been discovered by forum members?  What's the current hot topic and debate? Read on to find out..



5. Fun, Humour and Amusements on the Web

If you've read the newsletter up to this point, take a break and check out the lighter side of the forum - humour, videos, and games..



6. Announce Your Software/Service/Product

Sometimes coders announce their software (freeware and shareware) on our site; here are some announcements made in the last month or so:



7. Software Discussion

Here you'll find some of the standout discussions that have been started since the last newsletter about specific software applications.



8. Developer's Corner

The title of this section shouldn't scare you off - there is definitely something of interest for everyone here! It's more than just a section for the discussion of software development, it's also where we discuss web design, entrepreneurial ideas, and general productivity issues.  It's great to see that the section has been pretty active recently.



9. Hardware Hideout

We tend to focus on websites and software on the forum, but that doesn't mean that DC forum members aren't always on the lookout for cool new gadgets and information on maximizing their computer's performance.

Yup, surely it's because of the Canadian post strike. Got mine "yesterday" -- June 12. Grin
