Some time ago there was an offer of a free copy of an older version (worth watching out for) probably in the hope you will upgrade.
Unfortunately that offer has been "withdrawn by the manufacturer".  :'(

Very sad, I think once people try SnagIt they will stick with it and possibly upgrade.

The least expensive gas in your zip code
 
This is pretty cool. Yes, it even works in Hawaii ! 
Just enter your zip code in the site below, and it tells you which gas stations
have the cheapest prices (and the highest) on gas in your zip code area.
 
It's updated every evening.

Helpful hints…
==============================
 
A sealed envelope - Put in the freezer for a few hours, then slide a
Knife under the flap. The envelope can then be resealed.
(hmmmmmm...)

============================================
Use empty toilet paper roll to store appliance cords . It keeps them
Neat and you can write on the roll what appliance it belongs to. 
(Use paper towel rolls for large cords.)

============================================
For icy door steps in freezing temperatures: get warm water and put
Dawn dish washing liquid in it. Pour it all over the steps. They won't
Refreeze. (wish I had known this for the last 40 years!)

============================================
To remove old wax from a glass candle holder , put it in the freezer for
A few hours. Then take the candle holder out and turn it upside down. The
Wax will fall out.

=================================================
Crayon marks on walls? This worked wonderfully! A damp rag, dipped
In baking soda. Comes off with little effort (elbow grease that is!).

====================================
Permanent marker on appliances/counter tops (like store receipt
BLUE!) use rubbing alcohol on paper towel.

=============================================
Whenever I purchase a box of S.O.S Pads, I immediately take a pair of
Scissors and cut each pad into halves. After years of having to throw
Away rusted and unused and smelly pads, I finally decided that this would
Be much more economical. Now a box of S.O.S pads last me indefinitely!
In fact, I have also noticed that the scissors get 'sharpened'', too!!

=============================================
Blood stains on clothes? Not to worry!   Just pour a little hydrogen
Peroxide on a cloth and proceed to wipe off every drop of blood. Works
Every time! (Now, where to put the body?) LOL

======================================
Use vertical strokes when washing windows outside and horizontal
For inside windows. This way you can tell which side has the streaks.
Straight vinegar will get outside windows really clean. Don't wash windows
On a sunny day. They will dry too quickly and will probably streak.

=======================================
Spray a bit of perfume on the light bulb in any room to create a lovely
Light scent in each room when the light is turned on.

========================================
Place fabric softener sheets in dresser drawers and your clothes will
Smell freshly washed for weeks to come. You can also do this with towels
And linen.

=======================================
Candles will last a lot longer if placed in the freezer for at least 3
Hours prior to burning.

=======================================
To clean artificial flowers, pour some salt into a paper bag and add the
Flowers. Shake vigorously as the salt will absorb all the dust and dirt
And leave your artificial flowers looking like new!   Works like a charm!

=======================================
To easily remove burnt on food from your skillet , simply add a drop or
Two of dish soap and enough water to cover bottom of pan, and bring to
A boil on stove top.

======================================
Spray your TUPPERWARE with nonstick cooking spray before pouring
In tomato based sauces and there won't be any stains.

=======================================
Wrap celery in aluminum foil when putting in the refrigerator and it will
Keep for weeks.

=======================================
When boiling corn on the cob, add a pinch of sugar to help bring out the
Corn's' natural sweetness.
                       <><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>
Another option for corn on the cob:   Remove about half the shucks!  Cut each end off the corn
and put corn (with shucks) in microwave.  Microwave about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes per ear.
Remove from Microwave using a "hot mitt".  Continuing to hold with "mitt" - remove
Shucks - silks are easily brushed off.  Serve immediately.   Deeeeelicious!

.=====================================
Cure for headaches: Take a lime, cut it in half, and rub it on your
Forehead. The throbbing will go away.

=======================================
Don't throw out all that leftover wine: Freeze into ice cubes for future
Use in casseroles and sauces ........ Left over wine? What's that? :)

=======================================
To get rid of itch from mosquito bites, try applying soap on the area
And you will experience instant relief.

======================================
Ants, ants, ants everywhere .. Well, they are said to never cross a
Chalk line. So, get your chalk out and draw a line on the floor or where-ever ants
Tend to march. See for yourself.

======================================
Use air-freshener to clean mirrors. It does a good job and better still,
Leaves a lovely smell to the shine.

======================================
When you get a splinter, reach for the scotch tape before resorting to
tweezers or a needle. Simply put the scotch tape over the splinter, and
then pull it off. Scotch tape removes most splinters painlessly and easily.

==================================
Now look what you can do with Alka Seltzer........
Clean a toilet.
Drop in two Alka Seltzer tablets, wait twenty minutes, brush and flush.
The citric acid and effervescent action clean vitreous  China.

=======================================
Clean a vase.
To remove a stain from the bottom of a glass vase or cruet, fill with water
and drop in two Alka Seltzer tablets.

======================================
Polish jewelry.
Drop two Alka Seltzer tablets into a glass of water and immerse the
jewelry for two minutes.

=======================================
Clean a thermos bottle.
Fill the bottle with water, drop in four Alka Seltzer tablets, and let soak
for an hour (or longer, if necessary).

====================== ==============
Unclog a drain.
Clear the sink drain by dropping three Alka Seltzer tablets down the
drain followed by a cup of Heinz White Vinegar. Wait a few minutes,
and then run the hot water.

Broadband Providers Cap Monthly Usage

Just another example of big business socking it to the public.
If the big Oil companies can get away with gauging profit margins,
why not let the big Telecommunication companies join the bandwagon.  :'( :'(

A large number of UK ISP has a limit included in the package, some as low as 3GB some 5GB. There are however, some that purport to be unlimited, and some of those then pop-up the unreasonable use clause (what is unreasonable about using the supposed unlimited download they advertised) to ditch high bandwidth users.

The UK has only recently started offering broadband mobile where the user has a USB dongle to connect, most of these also start at a 3GB limit with an arm and a leg required should you go over that limit.

Fill your car for $1.10 a gallon?

Hopefully I'll still be alive when this actually happens. :)
