CivilGrrl's got a bit of money left over at the end of the year, and we'll have to pay franchise tax on anything left in the account, so we're making sure all bills and debts and such are paid off. While checking for software upgrades, I ordered a year's worth of DevNet Professional Subscription from Macromedia. It was a pretty pricey ($699 upgrade from Flash MX), but it includes self-upgrading licenses to damn near every Macromedia product in existence. Given that Flash is likely to get a major upgrade next year, I thought that'd help defray the cost.

While ordering I noticed that they were pushing a couple of promotions for buying stuff, namely a 20% discount off a $500 order and a free Flash Video Kit extension ($99 value). Unfortunately, DevNet wasn't on the list of stuff that qualified for the 20% discount. Luck had it, though, when the system had trouble with the CivilGrrl credit card and recommended that I call their 800-number. While placing the re-order, the saleslady gave me the 20% discount, dropping the price to $560.

Given that next year's Flash upgrade is gonna probably be $199 or $299, that means that I got a reasonably good deal on Dreamweaver, Fireworks, Freehand, Contribute, FlashPaper, a pile of server stuff I don't care about (1, 2, 3) and Quarterly toys. Wheeee!
