Welcome to Clif Notes Newsletter

Hi everyone. This week, I tried two programs that I won't recommend. I was disappointed. At least I can save you the download time and headaches. I usually point you to a better program when that happens. Cool?

I hope you enjoy this week's letter. Be sure to email me for advice or to yell at me for messing up. clif.notes @ gmail.com

cliff - another great newsletter!!

i'd like to point out that personally i love how you tell us about the 2 programs that you didn't like and don't recommend!
most newsletters and things like yours just recommend apps and its a nice mix to have some programs that you really liked but also to hear about ones that you might have thought looked good but turned out they weren't  - very useful.

Thanks Mouser,

I was beginning to wonder if I was clear about which ones I didn't like. I just got this letter and had to explain it all to them. I think some people just don't pay attention.
