DealBITS Drawing: Disc Cover Winners -- Congratulations to Damian Burke of gmail.com, Ronald Jore of jore.com.au, and Jonathan Baumgarten of frostbaumgarten.com, whose entries were chosen randomly in last week's DealBITS drawing and who each received a copy of BeLight Software's Disc Cover. Even if you didn't win, you can still save 15 percent on Disc Cover through 12-Apr-06, bringing the price of the download edition (which has only about 900 clip art images from the full set of 23,000) to $29.95 and the CD edition to $33.95 plus shipping and handling (about $43). Order using the third and fourth links below to receive your discount. Thanks to the 653 people who entered, and keep an eye out for future DealBITS drawings! [ACE]
