Found Deals and Discounts / Online Armor Premium Firewall for Free
« on: August 10, 2009, 11:44 PM »
Hello everyone,

I've been asked to pass this offer along to others so they can take advantage of it.

Here's the information from Gizmo's Freeware site:

Here's an offer from Tall Emu, the developers of Online Armor, that's exclusive to Gizmo Freeware readers.

Tall Emu is offering $39.95 off all its products for a three day period running from 12.01 AM Monday August 10 to 11.59 PM Wednesday August 12, 2009.  (All times are US Pacific Standard Time)

The $39.95 is not a cash back offer or refund: it is an immediate discount you can apply to any Tall Emu product and comes with full support.

So for example you could use the discount to get:

    * The superb $39.95 Online Armor Premium firewall for free or
    * A $49.95 two year license to Online Armor Premium firewall for $10 or
    * The full $59.95 online Armor ++ Security Suite for $20 or
    * Any other Tall Emu product at a $39.95 discount

Here's the link for more information:

Online Armor Premium Firewall for Free

I tested this out and all went smoothly. I got my license key about ten seconds after I ordered.

In the interest of full disclosure, I've been a member here at donationcoder for a few years, and I also write a bit for Gizmo which keeps me pretty busy.
For anyone who may not know, Gizmo's site a evaluates freeware and makes recommendations on the top picks. All the categories are maintained by volunteer editors. There are no ads at all. Everything is done by people donating time and talent.
Ok, now you now you aren't being lured in by an evil empire marketing scheme, if you're interested, wander on over.

I'm no security expert, but I've been running the free version of Online Armor for some time. For what its worth, its highly rated at matousec.

Some really interesting things here.
One of my favorites is a plug in that allows .pdf files to viewed in Explorer if you are using FoxIt reader. Only for Vista at the moment but they are working on other versions.

http://www.makeuseof...video-editing-tools/

Whether you need basic tools that let you easily cut-off desired scenes, add background music, integrate animations, etc. or something more powerful, it’s all here. While each service offers different editing features, functionality is the same everywhere, i.e. (1) upload your video either from your PC or grab it directly from the web (i.e Youtube, Metacafe etc…), (2) edit/mix/enhance it, and (3) share it with others.

Something I ran across that might be of use.

Found Deals and Discounts / Mouse wheel enhancement for Windows
« on: May 01, 2007, 07:06 PM »
I ran across this little gem at Lifehacker http://www.lifehacker.com/ today.

It allows your mouse to scroll in *any* window or pane your mouse is in.
Not being able to do that has been an annoyance of mine for a long time.
I'm happy to report it works great, and the tray icon is cute (not a requirement but fun anyway).

http://www.code-scout.net/katmouse/

from the site:
"The prime purpose of the KatMouse utility is to enhance the functionality of mice with a scroll wheel, offering 'universal' scrolling: moving the mouse wheel will scroll the window directly beneath the mouse cursor (not the one with the keyboard focus, which is default on Windows OSes). This is a major increase in the usefullness of the mouse wheel.

Another feature involves the wheel button. Since the wheel button is not consistently used in Windows, KatMouse can use it for a kind of task switching: with a click of the wheel button you can push a window to the buttom of the stack of windows that is your desktop, making a recovered window the active window."
