Found Deals and Discounts / O&O Software sale - 50 to 90% off
« on: February 27, 2019, 12:01 PM »
I received an email sales flyer from O&O yesterday.

For the next 3 or 4 days, they have their software for 50% to 90% off.

The sales  link I received is:

LINK to sale page

Note: if link doesn't bring up discounts of 50 to 90% off, you can manually enter coupon code on order form. [I have noticed that sometimes links within sale emails only work for the actual  individual/recipient on O&O's email list

Note 2: I am not an affiliate and link above is not an affiliate link. It is a link from an O&O sale email I received.

Coupon code = 2H7-98Q-61X

I normally wait for their 90% off sale, to purchase their O&O Bluecon Admin.
A great Windows repair/recovery tool for $109 [normally $1,090].

I've used it for over 10 years.
You create a bootable flash drive, boot from it and can then run assorted windows repairs and/or diags .
Over the years, it's been worth the $109 per edition that it costs. With its repair and recovery options.

Just my .02 cents on their one product :Thmbsup:

Are you sad that you missed the last FlexiPDF sale?
Get FlexiPDF now starting at US$14.95!
FlexiPDF is your indispensable tool for creating, editing and annotating PDF files. With FlexiPDF, you can work on PDFs with the convenience of a word processor.

Until Sunday, we make you an irresistible offer:

FlexiPDF Standard can be yours for just US$14.95 instead of US$59.95.
FlexiPDF Professional is available for just US$27.95 instead of US$79.95.



features page

Pretty decent licensing, as it can be used on up to 3 PC's:

Licensing: This is a one-time purchase, not a subscription. You can use the software as long as you want.
Personal use: You and other members of your household may use FlexiPDF on up to 3 PCs.
Enterprise use: You may run FlexiPDF on up to 3 PCs used by the same individual.

I first came across Softmaker due to their inexpensive OFFICE suite (it goes on sale for approximately $14.99 from time to time. Sales are normally announced to email list recipients only).

Their office software seemed quite MS OFFICE compatible.
I think it was 2017 that Softmaker introduced their PDF creator/editor software.
I use FlexiPDF on  a couple of computers. Got tired of free PDF maker options, that bombard a person with Advertisements.

Only issue I had (and it might be fixed by now) is that FlexiPDF does not offer any sort of Automatic document naming.
By that I mean, if you create a PDF of a browser page or whatever, it doesn't auto-fill the PDF's Name field for you, like other programs will. Some programs insert the date+a number, others might somehow grab the document's Description and auto-fill with that.
(I just hate typing in, or doing a cut'n paste into the doc's name field. Just a personal annoyance).

 As a PDF program it seems to work fine.

Also, for Font enthusiasts, get a FREE font every month, via FREE font every month

I hope other folks find deals like these to be of interest, though it is not "specifically" a software deal per se. When I utilize IT training books and/or reference books to help with learning about software, its proper and advanced usage, I tend to feel that there's a useful relationship. That it might also benefit others as well.

It's posted on Humblebundle as, "$565 worth of digital books".
This times the bundle is regarding  Security/Hacking and is called, "Hacking REloaded".
All books are from No Starch Press.

Many of the  books are fairly recent releases. With release dates as recent as 2017, 2016

This isn't software per se,  but it is IMHO,  a decent looking set of ebooks on Coding and Programming of software. Along with performing better at your current IT related job. And/Or making the move into the arena of IT related jobs out there. If you are so inclined to do so.

The folks at Humble Bundle have another bundle, that include titles related to Python,Javascript, HTML5 plus other titles for those folks searching for jobs within the IT and/or coding/programming community.

As usual with Humble Bundle, a donation [payment?] of $1.00 gets you the 1st level of books. An $8.00 or more gets you the 1st AND 2nd levels of ebooks. While $15.00 or more gets you access to the entire collection. Levels of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd sets of ebooks [The whole enchilada].

While not for everyone, myself I've normally found enough value in a few of the coding/programming ebooks, so as to purchase the entire collection with the $15.00 or more price tag.

Below is the direct link:
Coding, programming and IT related ebook bundle from HumbleBundle
