Picks Made By YOU!
When I first got into computers my main goal was to write. To do word processing. The problem was I was just too curious. I couldn't ignore all the cool stuff that was developing around me. Once the shareware concept started in 1982 I started looking at software on a daily basis. Pretty soon I was looking at a couple hundred programs a week. Everything from games to compression to text editing. It wasn't long before I started putting reviews of shareware programs on some of the first bulletin board systems. The rest, as they say, is history.
Each and every week I look at over 200 software programs. And each and every week I talk about some of the best in my Dr. File Finder's Picks here on Tucows. I've been writing Picks for 26 years all together and I never get tired of looking at software. For me, however, it's nice to hear what you think is good software. What programs you like and what programs you use. I like to see the Picks made by you!
So, this week I'm keeping my mouth shut about software and inviting all of you to participate in the 2008 People's Choice Awards! voting Just click on that and you'll go to the voting site. Here, you can register to vote. Once you've registered with a valid email address you get an email back giving you the link to vote. The email address, by the way, is just used to verify your identity and is immediately discarded. Then you can vote for the programs you like best. Pick the programs you like and give them your vote. It's one way for you to tell software developers that you really like their product.
Voting is open through May 31st and the results are revealed at the annual Shareware Industry Awards banquet. They'll also be revealed here after the banquet. Participate. Vote for your favorite software today!
