January promo updates (and thanks)

  • Thanks, Office Depot! - First off, a big thank you to Office Depot for sponsoring the 43f feed for the last few weeks. I was thrilled that they were our first sponsor because, personally, I drop a lot of dough at my Office Depot each month, and I think they're a swell company. I have appreciated their support very much.
  • A2 discount ends soon - There's eight (8) days remaining in A2's 10% lifetime hosting discount, so get in there while you still can.
  • Advertising on 43f - Finally, just the occasional reminder that if you'd like to reach one of the smartest (and best-looking) audiences on the web, you can advertise on 43 Folders, via our pals over at FM. Big ads, little ads, ads that climb on rocks -- we got you covered.

Thanks, and now back to our regularly-scheduled productivity programming.

Update: 43f Deals & Discounts

Just some quick reminders and news on a few current discounts and special deals available for 43f readers.

In somewhat related news, the Working and Living Life Smarter Conference announced last month is being rescheduled to a TBD date next year. Registrants have been notified and received refund info, but you should feel free to ask any questions to either the conference's organizer, Kay Ethier (sales at aboveandbeyondlearning daht com), or me. Will update when the new dates are announced -- I imagine that we'll have another discount to offer for 43f readers.

43F Discount: 30% off DEVONthink Pro and other DEVONtechnologies apps

From now through November 15, you can get a 30% discount on any of the DEVON apps (excluding PhotoStickies) -- that includes DEVONthink Personal, DEVONthink Pro, DEVONagent, DEVONnote as well as the Infoworker's Pro Bundle and the DEVONthink/PhotoStickies bundle.

Just use the code "en-promo-43f-200610" when you checkout to receive your discount.

Merlin at NC Conference; Discount for 43f readers

Important update: 2006-11-15

The Working and Living Life Smarter Conference, announced below, is being rescheduled to a TBD date next year. Registrants have been notified and have received refund info, but you should feel free to ask any questions to either the conference’s organizer, Kay Ethier (sales at aboveandbeyondlearning daht com), or me. 43 Folders will update when the new dates are announced.

So sorry for the change! I apologize for any inconvenience this change has caused and hope that you can still make it to the rescheduled conference next year.

WORKING AND LIVING LIFE SMARTER 2006 (43 Folders Discount)

Next month, I'll be speaking at the Working and Living Life Smarter Conference in Raleigh, North Carolina. I'll be doing two talks that should be a lot of fun for 43F fans. And -- lucky for you interested folks, there's a discount afoot, as well.

43F Discount: 10% off all A2 hosting..._for life_

A2 Web Hosting

As you may know, 43 Folders is hosted through our friends at A2 Web Hosting. They’ve been great to work with and have an amazing record of stepping up to the plate whenever we have any problems — even those mysterious problems that turn out to be, uh, “pilot errors.”

Text Ads available on 43F; Thanks to our advertisers

Advertise on 43 Folders

If you hadn't noticed, FM now offers modestly priced Text Ads for some of their sites, including 43F. It's probably the least costly way to get your product or company on the site, plus, AFAIK, you can do it all totally self-serve.

Thanks to our current Text Ad tenants, Associated Content and snappymultimedia.com. I'm grateful for the support.

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »

Scared Shitless

Merlin’s scared. You’re scared. Everybody is scared.

This is the video of Merlin’s keynote at Webstock 2011. The one where he cried. You should watch it. »
