Some readers liked the touch of class in last month's NNT when I quoted Browning's "let me count the ways" as to why you should seriously consider subscribing to the Premium edition if you're not amongst our elite. You'll surely remember the "ways":

* Each issue of NNT Premium has at least 12 free software programs that aren't mentioned in the free edition (there's never a repetition);

* Unlike this annoying message, there are no ads in NNT Premium to sift through in getting to the good stuff;

* What you are reading here is plain text; NNT Premium is rich in graphics and that's often necessary to more clearly illustrate a particular technical tip;

* Speaking of technical tips, NNT Premium has 2-minute Tekkie Tips to help your computer function faster and neater, tips that are easy for even the novice to work through, and tips that are ever mindful of our slogan "No Screwdriver Needed";

* Mini-Reviews of popular software programs "tell it like it is" so you'll be forewarned about the good, the bad, and the ugly programs before you shell out hard cash;

* "Spotted On The Web" takes you to an especially neat, entertaining, and thought-provoking site on the Web;

* Op-ed comments discuss timely topics in the realm of technology;

* Every issue has a full-length feature article on a computer or Internet topic; and,

* Should you misplace an issue in your subscription, our archive service will replace it.

There are probably many more reasons to subscribe to NNT Premium as well as this Standard issue, one of which is that you will help to support this free edition and other NNT services. You can start your subscription right now for just $12 a year (24 issues) at the NNT Store, http://www.neatnettricks.com/store . And if it's not everything we said (and then some), feel free to cancel for a full refund, no questions asked.
