Humble Bundle Lifehacker Software Bundle
« on: November 02, 2016, 02:34 PM »
Humble Bundle has a non-games bundle of utility programs deal running for the next couple weeks:

The Humble Bundle Lifehacker Software Bundle: https://www.humblebu...cker-software-bundle


For a payment of at least $1, you'll get keys for:

    - Breevy
    - Fences + Deskscape
    - Directory Opus 12 "Light"
   
Pay more than the average (currently $7.45) and you'll also get keys for:

  - Display Fusion
  - LastPass Premium (1 year subscription) *new users only*
  - CyberGhost VPN (1 year subscription) *new users only*


Pay $15 or more to also get:

  - Acronis True Image 2017 (one year subscription)
  - Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2017 (one year subscription)
 

I know that many of these programs have been discussed on Donationcoder in the past, but I don't personally use any of them currently so I have no opinion on how good these offers might be.  Also, I haven't delved into the details of licensing on the offers.

"Fences" looks like it might be interesting to play around with for a buck.

Display Fusion is pretty great if you have multiple monitors. That alone is worth the "beat the average" price. :Thmbsup:

If you are anything like me and collect desktop icons like nothing else in the world ... i definately recommend getting the first tier of the bundle with Fences.

Especially at work im piling up stuff on my desktop (less program links but often all kind of files) . And for 1$ its a no brainer for me    ;)

Have you ordered anything?  I am just curious how it would work paying $1 with PayPal.  :)

Just like any other amount?  :huh:

In the bottom area, select custom amount and put in $1.  It will send you to paypal for $1.

I guess they have a merchant account so the fee is not handled like it is for personal accounts.  DUH!  :)
I watched a video of a guy showing how to use Deskscape.  I tried Fences before and was less than thrilled.

Subconsciously I must be looking for an excuse not to get multiple software titles for a buck.  :)

I think PayPal still charges a fairly significant fee, which is why $1 is the minimum. They're probably only getting like $0.60-$0.70 when you only pay $1.

Yup, exactly.  At one point they didn't have a minimum, but jackwagons took advantage of that and they were losing money on those.

You can either have it linked to your Steam account, or get a regular license key that is managed on the binary fortress site.

Hmm, I never ran into that slang term before.  Cool.
