This is deja vu all over again - this is the second thread (at least) started to announce this service. SPAM ALERT!

Mouser has had me hold off on removing it since he is posting in the "Announce your site" section. However, it would be nice for him to post about himself, his affiliation with the site, etc.

Meh.  I find myself wishing for a feature where people could vote him off the island.

He was last active 5 minutes ago - maybe he's writing up a bio to clear things up, but I doubt it!

Hi guys,

This is my own site, I have posted it before at some other forum but it was deleted. Then I realized it should be posted at "Announce Your Software/Service/Product" section. This is the right place to post, right?

Thank you.

This is the right place for people to post about their software and sites, and i do not view it as spam if posted here.  He didn't try to pretend that he wasn't associated with the site, and i think by posting it here one is implicitly saying they are associated with the site, so i really don't see any problem with the post.

I find he has an interesting understanding of the term "freeware"  ;D ;D:

Q: How do you figure discounted software as Freeware?
A: well, the discounted part is free to you.

I don't recognize ANY of the programs he claims to be discounting.

I had the same experience but edited a similar comment out of my previous post after I recognised the Cucosoft line that he is offering... Still, nothing there of interest that I could see, but that might just be me.

Check out the antivirus section, he's offering interesting software like Kaspersky or a-squared. The other sections could unearth more good deals. Seems like an affiliated site (in some way) with Regnow, as it looks he offers pretty much what they're selling, only that it carries a discount. Oh well, those resellers (Regnow) don't look very trustable to me (yeah, I'm a paranoid type of guy :P).

I'm not sure if you were joking, but if you weren't, I can assure you that RegNow is a very reputable dealer. Digital River is a huge company that has been around the block of the software industry many times over and is well respected. Plimus can also be trusted. Between those, and a few others, I have purchased several hundreds of dollars worth of software. And many of the vendors that visit these forums and offer members discounts sell their software via these services as well.

Yeah, it was a bit of a joke, I prefer to buy directly from the software makers if it's possible.

I'll second that: DigitalRiver and RegNow are solid; been customers of theirs in the past to the tune of maybe a kilobuck or so.
