Welcome to our August Newsletter, featuring news about the ClipMate 7.2 update, a new translation, and a ClipMate usage tip.
Since the initial 7.2 release, there have been several updates, the latest being 7.2.05. Use the update checker under the Help menu, to see if you're up to date.
In case you missed the June newsletter, the big news in ClipMate 7.2 is Portability. See http://www.thornsoft.com/usb.htm for more information and examples of getting started with the portable version. Plus, we're still running our "add a seat" special pricing of $19.95, in case you'd like to use the portable option, but are out of licenses. See: http://www.digibuy.com/cgi-bin/order.html?thornsoft+96179388344 Also, we're still getting lots of inquiries about "trading up" to a 5-computer "Household Pack". You can trade-up your existing single-user license to a 5-user/computer license for $59.95, using coupon code V6UP2H_2000. Insert the code on the second page of this ordering link: http://www.thornsoft.com/buynow.php?prod=CMPRO5&ec=DIGIBUY
ClipMate was awarded the honor of "Best Application" at the 2007 Shareware
Industry Awards, held in Denver, Colorado in July. This award is voted on
by other members of the shareware industry, and we're proud to have ClipMate
recognized again as one of the best. Please take a look at the other
winners and nominees at the SIAF website:
Have you ever wondered where all of your disk space was being used? Windows doesn't give you a graphical view of your files, so you can't really "see" which files and directories are using a lot of space. We've seen several utilities over the years that address this, and FolderPrint Plus from StarGlider Systems is the first one to really impress us. It's fast, it's useful, and intuitive. It runs on Vista as well as XP, will quickly show you where your space is being used, and has the ability to dig into ZIP and MP3 files too! At $21.95 it's a good value, and it's a GREAT value if you get it free using TrialPay. Here's the TrialPay link: http://www.stgsys.com/fpptp.asp
Another one of our favorites is also available through TrialPay. Lincon Beach Software's Life Poster Maker, normally $29.95, can be had for a song, or a movie, or whatever you care to try or buy through TrialPay. Life Poster Maker lets you do something truly interesting and creative with your photos, by making giant posters out of your photos. It's a great way to make a lasting memory of a great trip, great event, or just a great year. Here is the TrialPay page, so you can now get it free! http://www.trialpay.com/stores/imageelements/lifepostermaker

Backups are great when you need to recover from trouble. You may notice files like ClipMate7_DB_My Clips_2007-07-13_2321.ZIP appearing on your hard drive, probably in your "my documents" folder. Those are ClipMate backups, and are created by the built-in backup routine that runs at startup (if you allow it) every 14 days or so (adjustable). Here are some things to know about backups:
We'd like to thank Luiz Marques of StarGlider System (yes, the author of FolderPrint Plus!) for a very nice Brazilian Portuguese translation!

and one for Asian languages (Chinese Simplified, Chinese Traditional,
Korean). They can be downloaded here:
