Limited time free offer - Blaze Video Smart Show - Windows Only

I saw this on my friend Chad Smith's blog and had to repost it. I love free stuff. It is however Windows only software.

Just wanted to let you all know about a free offer I have been told about, just in time for Mother's Day. Blaze Video Smart Show is a video editor that lets you mix still photos, video clips, music, and voice overs for a custom video of your very own.

It is available for free at this address - - but only until May 15.  (Normally it is $49.95.)

They also have other software available for a discounted price.

Loving the Brackets

I have been looking for a lightweight program to do my web coding. I tried Google Web Designer (Beta), but it is beta then began to like Sublime for Mac, but I didn't like the price tag. I then ran across another code editor called Brackets and I love it.

I have found that I code best and faster if I use a program that is stable, fast, and has changeable themes. Brackets has all those things. I was surprised to find out this program is free and it is from Adobe.

I had no idea Adobe had an open source community and open source programs. In this economy I recommend finding programs that help get work done and cost $0. I am a big fan of the open source community.

I really hope Adobe and other companies do more open source projects.

If you write or edit code, I strongly suggest you try Adobe Brackets and enjoy a quality program for free.
