When you hear "Neat Net Tricks" you probably think of the newsletters that have been sent out without interruption for nearly 16 years. There's

the free version you're getting here, and the NNT Premium edition. Each is distributed twice monthly. But there's lots more to Neat Net Tricks

than that. Our Software Review Panel reports twice monthly in detail on a selected program and you should check in there at

http://www.NeatNetTricks.com/SoftwareReviews/splash.htm before you consider buying any software. These not only carry independent evaluations by

our Panel members, uninfluenced with ads (there are none), but comments from the software developer as well. Find all that in any other review

site on the Web!

If you're having computer problems or just a question or two about your PC or the Internet, the answers are waiting for you at the NNT Forum,

http://www.neatnettricks.freeforums.net . If you haven't signed up there, it, too is a free service. Don't pay big bucks for technical support

when the answer is as simple as going to our Forum.

So what's with all the free stuff, who pay's the bill? The answer is simple: the NNT Premium version. A subscription is just $12 per year and

you get no ads, a graphics-rich issue with lots of tips you don't see here in the freebie, plus software reviews, tekkie tips, neat Web sites,

full-length articles, and more. It comes to your email box twice per month and you get a warm and fuzzy feeling that you are making all the free

stuff possible. Subscribe now, just $12, at http://www.neatnettricks.com/store and if you aren't delighted with what you see, let me know and

I'll refund your money, no questions asked. And the free stuff will still be yours for the taking.
