Special Holiday Edition (A Giveaway!)

Folks, I am pleased to announce my latest software license giveaway drawing.

(So much for my “hibernation mode…”) Yesterday I received a note from one of my contacts out there ‘in the biz’, asking me if I would be willing to run another contest, and help them promote a special sale they are offering for the holiday season. (Loyal readers may remember, I had reviewed their product in May.) Always thinking of you, Dear Reader, I agreed.

The folks at have generously donated five licenses for Handy Backup Standard to me, to award to my readers. I sincerely thank them for that. So I am going to do a random drawing¹ contest from folks who “enter” by posting a comment (below). The drawing will close Thursday, Dec. 30, and the winners announced Friday, in the last post of 2010.

Handy Backup is a program for creating “backup copies” of the files on your computer, which regular readers know, is something I repeatedly urge people to get into the habit of doing! With a backup program like Handy Backup, you don’t need a ‘habit’, you can set-it-and-forget-it.

Publisher’s description:

Handy Backup™ Standard is an easy-to-use backup software designed to perform automated backup of your computer. User-friendly interface and a rich set of backup features make it one of the best PC backup software for home and small office use. Handy Backup Standard features:

(Businesses will want to look at Handy Backup Server.)(Holiday sale expires on January, 10, 2011.)

How to enter? Residents of the US and Canada may enter the contest drawing by simply clicking on “comment” (below), and entering a name and a valid e-mail (so I can send you the license key) in the form. Actually commenting is optional. And, I shouldn’t have to say this, but multiple entries will result in disqualification.

Again, I thank the folks at for making this giveaway possible. A 30-day free trial can be downloaded here, Download Handy Backup. Try it out yourself. (And then leave a comment. You may just win an activation key..)

¹ All entrants will be placed into’s “randomizer”, and the top 5 results will be the winners.

Please have a safe and joyous Holiday!
