    cybercore,

    No offense but are you saying it's illegal?

    It's basically a marketing site.

    I think, perhaps, you were both agreeing on the same point?
    But the heavy, underlined quotation was from here:

    http://www.shvoong.com/internet-and-technologies/software/1912898-www-giveawayoftheday-com/

    Which was a poor google translation from an Eastern European site. I say poor, because I cannot understand it - lol. I see Cybercore has changed it for the original from the site itself - much more readable.

    This was the original offer, which I grabbed at the time:

    http://news.cnet.com/8301-13845_3-10355551-58.html

    Only warning for new users is that, as you can read, you must install and, where required, licence it within the given period. It won't work a second time if, for example, you reformat and start over.

    Here is an explanation of the site, and its legality. (Saves a lot of work for those who trawl for offers!!)
    Computer and Net: Free software licenses daily : Giveaway of the day

    A deal of the offers are rubbish and some, not many, have a time limit after you have gone to the trouble of installing it. But, on the whole, you can grab some really good stuff from the site. Worth a daily visit.

    That's why I post the best ones, I don't post everyday:)

    They are mainly from the European Eastern block and some are ripoffs of some other company, but this is legit also because they participate in an affiliate program.

    There are misspellings and their web sites look like they just used a template

    You are right, when I read it over I was confused myself. And when posting I didn't realize it was a translation, because its first lines tricked me with their somewhat coherent meaning. The whole piece looked like:

    I had put this description because the right link wouldn't open at first and I thought the page did not exist. When reghackr noticed that "bla-bla" I checked the right link again, it opened, and I put it in my post. But the direct link to giveawayoftheday had always been there on top of my post from the very beginning.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    When I edit posts I always write for what reason. :)

    Also remember that there are no free upgrades to these giveaway offers. Many of these, are a giveaway of an intermediate level program encouraging you to
    buy the upgrade program or another program offered by the same company. This practice is perfectly legal and ethical, it is just an advertising gimmick.

    Edit: To new users of Giveaway, read and follow the installation instructions VERY carefully. Some are quite detailed and downright tricky and you must follow them precisely to get the freebie properly activated.

    That is a good point and I will include it in future posts if they give away a decent program.

    Today it's a screensaver which is a thing of the past (worthless)

    Tidy Start Menu 3.4


    Tidy Start Menu



    [​IMG]





    Are you tired of searching for programs in a long “Start Menu” list? If so, this program is for you. It allows you to arrange all the shortcuts in the Start Menu.


    Your Start Menu looks neat, and you can easily and quickly find any program you want. For example, you can create a special “Games” category, and when opening the Start Menu you will see a “Games” section (instead of a list of the games) in which you will find the game you need.


    The Good
    * Straightforward and easy to use.
    * Allows users to work in two modes – “Simple” and “Explorer”.
    * Provides users with a handful of categories to use to reorganize the start menu, and gives users the ability to create their own.
    * Comes with a handful of supplementary features: adding icons to start menu folders, adding uninstall quick-links to right-click context menus, and searching for and removing broken shortcuts.
    * Can backup/restore the start menu and import/export the start menu as XML files.
    * Gives users the ability to organize the start menu of all Windows’ users’ accounts.

    The Bad
    * There is no way to “undo” the deletion of a category.
    * All the entries placed in a category are deleted upon the deletion of a category – no way to automatically remove the entries after deletion so they can be placed in another category.
    * No option in “Explorer Mode” to move start menu entries instead of copying them.

    Unzip the package you've downloaded, and carefully read the instructions which you can find in the readme.txt file. This readme.txt file is included with all our downloads. Follow the instructions carefully to install and activate the software.
