MacHeist - I'm giving stuff away, helloooo...

Edit: All the licences have gone now. That's it. You're too late to get free stuff. But - read the whole thing, it's a good deal, you get loads of software for very little cash.

Okay, well, I've asked around about this elsewhere, but not gotten any response, so here we go: who wants some free Mac software? And not, you know, free software that is normally free, but over a hundred dollars worth of it.

The thing is that I'm going to pay for the software bundle that MacHeist is providing, and it's got three applications that I already have licences for. But they allow for that - you can "gift" licences to other people, i.e. register them with another name and another email address.

So I'm offering:

  • TaskPaper which I've blogged about before - my favourite task management wotsit;

  • SnapzProX, a top quality screen recorder and snapshot utility which I use a lot in Second Life - it's fast enough to record streaming video straight out of the window, and a lot better for saving screenshots than the built-in utility;

  • Pixelmator which is a good-looking little graphics package for quick, simpleish tasks. It's not Photoshop but let's face it, you don't need Photoshop for 99% of the editing you do unless you are some sort of arteeest.

Clearly I think all of these programs are good, because I've already paid for them. So if you want any of them, please let me know. I'll need a name and an email address for the licences - you can send these to fridgemagnet at livejournal.com (or get in touch in some other way if you know my address). Name them in order of preference and I'll do it first come first served. But, you know, I have to do this within four days because the offer expires then.

Incidentally, take a look at MacHeist anyway - it's a stupidly good value promotion with 25% of the profits going to charity, where you get licences for twelve different applications for $49 rather than however many hundred dollars you'd normally pay. If you do decide to purchase (and I would - well, I am) then please, use this link:

because that's my referrer link. You don't get any more for doing that, but you don't lose anything, and I get some extra stuff, some of which I really want.
