[clif_notes] Clif Notes Newsletter

Postby MysteryFCM » Sun Jun 05, 2005 1:43 pm

Hi Everyone.

I'm just an average computer geek who loves to try out free programs and surf to cool websites. It's lucky for you that I also love to share what I find. Each week, I send out a plain text email with a link to Clif Notes Newsletter.
    • I review several freeware applications.
    • I offer Windows tips, tricks, and security advice.
    • I also recommend interesting websites I've visited.
Best of all, it's free.
No spam, no ads, no kidding!.
