Discount Offers From APCUG
From Judy Taylour, APCUG Benefits & Services Committee

1) Thanks to Sherry Zorzi, our new APCUG Region 8 Advisor, for this freebie from Microsoft.

Microsoft is running a special at http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio for Visual Basic .NET. Click on Visual Basic at the Movies. All you do is view and rate five short vb.net programming movies (5-6 minutes each). Then sign up to receive your redemption code email entitling you to a complimentary Not-For-Resale copy of Visual Basic .NET 2003 Standard Edition.

In true studio fashion, MS is releasing two categories each week, so check back often to catch the latest releases. Grab your popcorn and soda, sit back and enjoy!

The fine print … This offer is valid in the 50 United States, the District of Columbia, all U.S. military bases that contain valid APO/FPO addresses, and Canada. Please allow 4 - 6 weeks for shipment. Offer good only while supplies last, or until September 30th 2004.

2) PC Annoyances for under $8.00!!

This one is from Steve Bass, PC World columnist, retired president of the Pasadena IBM User Group and author. Amazon.com has his book, PC Annoyances, for the amazing low price of $7.98. Here’s your chance to buy it for dirt cheap – actually, for less than wholesale. Take advantage of this great price for a gift – or for yourself. Here's a shortened link that gets you to the right Amazon page: http://snurl.com/annoy

In fact, if you want to impress a friend, say you know Steve (well, you do, sort of...) and he'll send you a free signed, self-adhering bookplate label that goes into the book. He'll even add a personal note to you or your buddy.

Send Steve an e-mail at stevebass@earthlink.net and let him know how many bookplates you need!
