Rose City Software Newsletter

Customer Update   -   This eZine also online here      April 8, 2008

Dear Rose City Customer,

Well for many of us in the Northern hemisphere, Winter is finally giving way to Spring. And we have the perfect tool for you to do some spring cleaning with!

Austin, Texas, Live Music Capital of the World! As an aside, we're also excited to soon be leaving winter behind permanently, and adopting a 'bi-coastal' lifestyle here at Rose City Software. We just purchased a place near sunny Austin, Texas... in the green rolling hills of Texas Hill Country, which is about the same latitude as Tampa, Florida. So in the near future, cold dreary winters will become a thing of the past as we headquarter near the Gulf Coast for the winter months. Howdy y'all!

In the December newsletter we told you about our brand new tool, DiskMagik, a must-have tool to keep your PC running right.... keep it tight and fast! So many of you raved about this new tool that we're repeating the special offer for one more month! Scroll down below for the special offer. If you missed it first time around, now's your chance to try it for free!

And last newsletter thousands of you tried the cool freeware calendar and have no doubt come to appreciate its presence in your system tray as much as we have... we haven't even glanced at the pathetic Windows calendar option since. This month we have a new freebie for you, HT Track Website Copier. And as a regular new feature, we're going to start including a select piece of humor that we think you'll all appreciate.

For best viewing of this newsletter set your email client to view images. If you don't see any below, get more info on how to do this with MS Outlook and Outlook Express.

This month's fr-eeee software offer
With each edition we will try to bring you a useful software you don't have to pay for... just as we did in previous months. Some are direct from Rose City and some are great toys and tools we have discovered elsewhere that we think you will like!

This month, we have a handy freeware tool called HTTrack which can neatly gobble up all the links of a website and create a local version for you to browse offline. This can be useful when travelling, or whenever you don't have internet access... or for a website that is just so good you want to save it to your disk before it disappears. We've used it several times to save a whole website to disk just days before it vanished from the web!

HTTrack is a free open source and easy-to-use offline browser utility for Windows 9x/NT/2000/XP, which allows you to download a World Wide Web site from the Internet to a local directory, building recursively all directories, getting HTML, images, and other files from the server to your computer.


HTTrack arranges the original site's relative link-structure. Simply open a page of the 'mirrored' website in your browser, and you can browse the site from link to link, as if you were viewing it online.

HTTrack can also update an existing mirrored site, and resume interrupted downloads. HTTrack is fully configurable, and has an integrated help system.

And HTTrack is completely free.. no cost, no adware, no strings... just a completely free tool to enhance your computer use. Visit the HTTrack website for more info and for the free download. And for lots of other cool free tools please check our website.

But first, read on for some other great software specials and tips...
