We never send unsolicited email and you are receiving Neat Net Tricks
because you (or someone at your computer) subscribed to it. If you do not
desire to receive this publication, see the footnote to unsubscribe.

The verdict's in and I hear those of you who wrote to voice your opinion as to whether NNT should publish a single topic per issue or offer a diverse selection. Those who favored the single topic made some good points, primarily that such an issue would be more in depth and easier to file away and retrieve when the need (or interest) surfaced. Those who favored the diverse approach of several unrelated items made equally good points, that there would likely be something of interest for everyone in each issue. The diverse side won out by a slim margin, so that's the way NNT will stay (but with an occasional single topic thrown in to appease the minority vote). Thanks all of you who took the time to write. You're appreciated!

There's still a little time to order CaptureWiz Pro and pocket $6 in the transaction at https://www.pixelmetrics.com/BuyNow/OrderFormPage1.php?@5n2 . You may recall I've written about this software and I'm convinced it's the best capture utility you can find on the Web. In addition to capturing anything, anywhere on the screen, the Pro version provides a capture bar that stays out of your way and lets you scroll to grab all or a part of any area, record screen action or animation to video files, record audio to your hard drive, create sticky notes from captured information and still more: it has a thumbnail viewer showing every capture you've made for five days, gives one-click access to your preferred image editor, capture the mouse pointer, provide tooltips, and lets you reprogram buttons and hotkeys. You're going to have a lot of holiday photos and other images coming up and, believe me, you'll wonder how you ever got by without CaptureWiz Pro.
