Great freebie again

If you didn't catch this freebie back in August, here's your chance to catch it again. This is Edraw Max 4.3, and it's a great vector-based tool for making any kind of blob-n-arrow documents. It's a lot like Visio, only I like it better. It has loads of drawing templates for stuff ranging from furniture layouts to flowcharts to UML diagrams.

It was a real lifesaver for me for the Gamedev Collection books. We had a lot of circle-n-arrow diagrams that were too low a resolution for print. I was able to redraw quite a few of 'em with Edraw and export 'em to high resolution TIF.

Actually if you did catch the freebie last time, you might want to grab it again. The August freebie was version 4.0, but this one's version 4.3.


Just remember that you must download and install the program TODAY. Part of the deal with giveawayoftheday.com is that their installers only work for the day that they present their daily freebie. So you can't just download the installer and install it later.

And it's legit. I've done several giveawayoftheday.com programs and have been very happy with 'em. There's no registration or ads or anything.

So don't miss it this time!



Oh, and somebody posted a list of a bunch of useful free stuff from Microsoft here. There's not a lot of really useful stuff here, but some of it is worthwhile.

So, wait. What is to keep someone from temporarily resetting their time/date to install the program? o_O

Nothing at all would prevent you from doing that.

The setup program verifies the date with the giveawayoftheday.com server, so it won't work, but you're free to change your system date as you'd like :)

Ah. I thought it might still be checking the local time instead of an internet connection. Been forever since I've had a program that required it be installed/used within a certain time period(such as the 30-day use progs), didn't realize they'd "advanced".

Shame there isn't a 'default' server for indies to use, such as Google or MS or whathaveyou.
