    While browsing another forum, I came across an old link to this site and it apears to still be offering one new program for free every day. I have no idea how legit this is, but since the post I found it in was 2 years old and the site is still running that everything should be on the up and up.

    Check it out daily if your interested and if you see a program on there that someone else here may have interest in, please respond to this thread and let us know what they are offering.

    Update: I played around a little while with a couple of the games and they are very entertaining, so anyone with children needs to check this site daily for cool stuff.

      They are legit, I tried a DVD authoring/converting program a while back and had a problem with it not working. When I un-installed it I sent the survey to the maker (Wondershare) and they actually sent me an email asking some follow up questions and then gave me the next version to see if the problem was fixed. It wasn't but, a bit of experimentation and I found a fix - install the codecs -... After I reported the fix that worked for me they sent me a link to the newest update along with a registration code.

      Basically what the companies do with some of these programs are is get feedback from the posts after people download and try out the programs.. Not a bad idea actually... Also the site has a link to another site for Game Giveaway of the Day...

          Most of the games seem to be geared toward children, but some are pretty good. I have "Jet's and Gun's" and it's pretty good, but tough.. at least for me...

              The games are fantastic for kids, so I'm going to pin this topic so it does not get lost in the forum.

              Today they are featuring a racing game that is pretty cool, but definatly not something a "Gamer" would be interested in.

                  Hey now... enough poking fun... ;):rolleyes:
                  I don't get what you mean???

                  The game posted for today is a 130mb+ racing game that I found quite fun, but would not apeal to the "Need for Speed" crowd, as in a "Gamer".

                  Anyone who has to have the fastest system and the newest games, or should I say the newest games meaning they need the fastest system possable to be able to play it... would be a gamer in my opinion and simple games like this would be of no value to someone who conciders themself to be a "Gamer".

                  Power Users and young children will spend many hours amusing themselves though.
                  I honestly enjoyed the break from complicated things and have spent a few hours playing "Ozzy Bubles" which was the game for yesturday. The simple world idea and smooth graphics were quite a treat and a great distraction when you need a break.

                  I feel that many users (certainly if they have kids) will find a lot of enjoyment out of this site and the games they give away, but as a gamer, there is nothing here that would be of any interest to you.

                    Umm... OK, you went waaay too deep into that response. It was a joke, I was being sarcastic, and I don't know whey you just went on and on like that. I think those games there are fun too, I was just trying to make fun of things as I know people have poked fun at my habits before, whether they know me or not. I'll be serious now and never do that again, sir. Thank you for such an informative post.

                            It's all in fun, worry not. Need to get involved, you don't. Messing around with each other from "past experiences", we were just. Grammar/spelling next time, you should check. ;)

                                If you've been labeled as a dick, especially if you have been told this by several people in a particular community, it might be wise to consider the possibility that it is true. If you suspect that you may be a dick, the first step is to become aware of it.

                                It's all in good fun, no hurtful meaning to anything posted here, yet I still don't understand how LB thought my post had anything to do with him. I guess I should try to qualify my remarks a Little better and probably just ignore posts that irritate me.
