No August 2007 Discounts
« on: August 08, 2007, 01:26:10 AM »
As the subject says, we won't have any new discounts for the month of August.   :(

Rest assured that I will be working extra hard to bring you a nice selection of programs for September.

No worries Carl, we probably need to rest our credit cards anyway  ;D

Thank FSM! What a relief. Now I won't have to choose between software and food this month. I think I will celebrate with two boxes of mac & cheese !!

OK. I give. Who or what is FSM?!

Carl - thank you for all the effort that you put into this. The contests are great and the discounts wonderful (though they tend to fill me with dread more than wonder because I know that my wallet is going to be lightened!).

Take your time!

Ah crap! I should have made that connection - I love the FSM! (Note to self: when looking for the correct mini-banner to click on, click on the one that has the SAME initials as the mystery acronym... that way you won't waste five minutes staring at tinjaw's Last.fm page going "WTF?"  :-[).

I realize this just cracks everyone up, but personally, I found myself getting angry.  In fact, I am angry.

It's more or less just another straw in the hat of how screwed up the people in this world can be.

But mouser...  I realize there are idiots who no matter what, will not be pleased.  But now you have taught the rest of those same idiots who aren't smart enough to "annoy" DonationCoder how to do so?

You are truly a glutton for punishment.   ;)

I gave, not because I had plenty of money at the time, but because I believed in DonationCoder.  And for good cause it turns out.  I believe DonationCoder was barely six months old when I gave.  To see it still thriving years later makes me ever so tingly.

To hear that someone else is finding fault in such a great place just because is flabbergasting.  I guess that is what makes an idiot and idiot right?  Illogical madness that makes normal people boggle at the level and intricacy of their idiocy.

Anyway... I plan on requesting a member kit.  Can you tell me how much it is though so I don't have to feel bad that this makes the 2nd time I'll be receiving it?  The first time my kids doodled on all the paper and stole my stickers.  This time I plan on putting them to good use.

I'm going to put them all over the stuff they don't want stickers on.  Muahahaha!

Oh, and if possible can I request extra of the tiny stickers?  I've got 4 kids and they've got *plenty* of stuff for me to tag.
I code.  Therefore I am.

Hmm, cthorpe (Carl Thorpe) is our volunteer official discount coordinator and he was not whining about no discounts for programs this month (or maybe he was? :P).

Anyway I really don't think anyone was finding fault. Who would?  ;)

I think perhaps fowmow wanted to post his reply in this thread? At least there it would have made some sense :)

Ugh!  Yes, I did mean to post in that thread.

You know... I have noticed odd goings on whenever I have numerous DonationCoder forum windows open and am logged in.  Sometimes I click a link in one window and it reloads another (I think) and just weird stuff all around.

I've not got a great memory, but am positive that odd stuff happens.

Because of your good spirited nature you must not have noticed that I actually addressed mouser in my post.

Otherwise I am sure you would have noted that I am most definitely going crazy and the DonationCoder forums are out to get me.

Personally, I noticed that, but I still thought the second... ;D
