Newsletter for November 7th, 2006
"A November to Remember"

"If you read nothing else on our site, read our BLOG"

1. Reviews
It's a pleasure to be able to report that we have a new giant Shootout Review for you this month, along with some mini reviews and guides:

2. New Program Releases
We love programming and writing new free programs for you to use.  Try these brand new releases!
  • NEW PROGRAM - TapTap Hotkey Extender - Let your favorite programs respond to special keyboard events. This super efficient tiny little app sits in your system tray and monitors for double taps of ctrl/shift/alt and other special keys, and then triggers standard hotkeys you configure.  In this way you can let any of the programs you use respond to these special keyboard events.
  • NEW PROGRAM - DC Tiles - You know those tile matching games where you turn over pairs of cards and try to match figures.  Well now you can make your own tile matching games using your own pictures and photographs and share them with families and friends.  Multiple difficulty levels and fun scoring system.

3. Software Updates
We haven't forgotten to update your favorites, and with your support we will keep improving them!

4. WOW! An Incredible $10,000 Programmer GIVEAWAY!
Well, we've got something truly special this month.. Chris Hanscom from www.Veign.com (and a longtime member of DC) has generously donated a super-tricked out version of Microsoft's Visual Studio 2005 Team Suite with MSDN Premium Subscription for us to give away to one very lucky programmer.  Valued at over $10,000.  NOTE: You don't have to be a DC supporting member to enter this contest, but we ask that only serious coders enter.  If you have a friend who is a coder, feel free to let them know about this giveaway.  Deadline to enter is Nov. 25, 2006.

5. November Discounts
With this month's giant Icon Tool Review Shootout, we're happy to be able to bring you some nice discounts on some of the best icon editors and more.  These Expire on November 30th.

6. Software Discussion
What's new in the world of software? Are you good at finding new software discoveries? Stop by the forum and help us find stuff!

7. Website Discoveries and Discussions
There are always new website services popping up every day, and lots of debate about the future direction of the web.

8. Fun Games and Diversions
Everyone needs a break from work every now and then..

9. Developer's Corner
The Developer's Corner section of our website isn't just for programmers, it's for people interested in starting their own business, website developers, etc.

10. Hardware Stuff
Just because we mainly focus on software, doesn't mean that we don't talk about hardware a lot, especially new gadget discoveries.

11. Getting Organized Experiment (GOE)
Learn to manage your time, energy, and productivity better!

12. Website of the Month
