Newsletter for Aug 28, 2013
"Codename: Safety and Security"





1. Newsletter Editorial

Greetings readers.  This is the first edition of our newsletter that is being sent out since we did a major pruning of the newsletter mailing list.  So if you're receiving this newsletter by email, we're glad to have you still with us!

In fact, if you are receiving this newsletter and haven't yet posted on our forum -- this is the perfect time for you to make a post and say hello!  We are a super friendly site and we always like hearing from new people, and you don't have to have any special skills or background to join our discussions.  Everyone is welcome.  If you look in section 2 of the newsletter, you're sure to find a forum thread that is perfect for your first post.

Anyway, We've got a slightly unusual newsletter for you this month.  While we normally focus on software, this month there seems to have been a flurry of security-related posts on the forum.  So we added a new section at the end of this month's newsletter collecting some of the more interesting security-related posts on forum.

We also have a ton of new beta updates to DC software to report.  If you use one of our programs there is a good chance we have a new beta version for you to try.  And if you have any feature requests for one of our programs, now is the time to post it.

I've also started posting about a big new programming project I've started on -- a new open source web framework called Mewlo.  You'll find a few posts about it listed in section 4 below.

And lastly, DC member Jibz has uploaded a new release his very popular bitmapped font "Dina", which now includes 6pt and 8pt versions (see Section 3 below).


2. User-to-User: Your Input Requested

We love nothing more than having interesting discussions on our forum -- and we love when new people participate in the discussions.  In each newsletter we try to highlight a few topics that we think might interest casual readers and that are good candidates for making your first post.


And some oldies but goodies:



3. DC Software Updates

Lots of updates to our hosted applications this month:



4. Member Reviews, Projects, and Announcements

We love to keep up with projects that our members are working on, and hearing what our forum members think of software they use.  If you're working on something interesting -- let us know!



5. Website Discoveries, Debates, Essays, 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...



6. Software Discussions

Just a small software section in this month's newsletter..



7. Entertainment and Humour

Here's a collection of some diversionary web browsing links posted on the forum recently.



8. Developer's Corner

This section highlights some discussions that might be relevant for not just for coders and developers, but also people interested in entrepreneurial issues.



9. Security Corner

There were so many security-related posts on the forum in the last month that we have a section of the newsletter devoted to the issue.

Click the link above to subscribe, or here: http://www.donationc...om/plist?p=subscribe.

Basically *everyone* was removed from the mailing list and asked to click on the new subscribe link to continue receiving the newsletters.
