[Mod note1: topic subject edited for consistency, was "Ashampoo Office 2008 - big discount"...]

[Mod note2: for a list of promotional sites check Rudy5's post at viewtopic.php?p=95902#p95902]

Just came across a great offer from Ashampoo: Office 2008 for only 5$ (full price is 60$).
Why I'm mentioning this here:
  • "Ashampoo Office 2008 has one decisive advantage over other office suites. You can install it on a USB stick and take it with you wherever you go. If you want to use another computer in the office, your laptop at home, the PC in the hotel lobby or the Internet café terminal, it's enough to just plug in the USB stick and continue your office work seamlessly. Installation unnecessary. "
The offer
More info
Hope this helps somebody! :)

Later edit: It has no advantages over the free CamStudio whatsoever. It fully works as a JPE version (not sure about the legal issues though).

Your Monster Voice 1.0

June 28, 2009
  • Create you own crazy voice effects. Speak into the microphone and hear your voice at the same time through the speakers. But it will not be your voice. It will be the voice of a monster, killer, alien or any crazy voice you can think of. You can save your recorded voice as mp3 or wav file. You can read in existing mp3 files or music CDs.
    The program ships with a couple of predefined effects. But you will be able to create new effects using simple formulas to map one frequency to another frequency.

    The formula for the build in robot voice is:

    x*(1- stark)+((len / 2-1-x)*x / (len / 2))*stark

    for example. Simply try to change the existing formulas to create your own effects and your own monster voice.
Home page

Looks like a lot of fun; I'll play with it for a bit.
If it works as advertised, I'll kidnap myself and send my wife a ransom mp3! :D

Edit: Bad experience
- while recording, the cpu is at full 100% usage
- the saved file has nothing distorted in it; the voice is your original one :)
