I was using an older version of GetRight. I downloaded "Free Download Manager" and haven't had any lost downloads. Thank you so much for your recommendations and help.

Looks nice seems to work well until you try and print something out then you are on your own

Instead of people arguing over legality, you can pick up a fully licensed copy of BusinessCards MX from Bits du Jour on Thursday, September 4th, for $17.67. I'm going to purchase ClipMate, the best of the clipboard extenders.

It's been a l-o-n-g time since I used dialup, but I used to like Headlight Software GetRight download manager, because downloading could be scheduled better than other download managers (at that time; I no longer use or pay attention to them).

@ #190 lostamoeba: Thanks for your reply. I understand what you said, but I don't understand why I only have the demo version. I downloaded it right after it was offered. I thought I had to "register" but couldn't figure out how, and I was told no, I didn't have to. So how is everyone else who didn't register able to use it, but I'm not? (That more rhetorical.) I guess this free version is just lost to me. I know $30 isn't a lot, but I wouldn't be printing very many cards either. So I'll have to think about buying it. But I appreciate you saying what a good program it is in case I do decide to buy. So, thanks again!!

* edit. To rephrase. I don't use this program all the time, but only because I don't make cards all the time. I've deleted the others and for now, this is the only business card software I use.

@ #185, Fubar. I'm happy the information helped :) I really like the adjustable grid setting, too! Yep @ entering own value, too. I thought I had written that, but oops :s It's same as info in post #96 for the rotation, too :)
----
@ #186, Bev D. I deleted the program and installed the demo, but wasn't able to recreate the same watermark; I have a paid version, so maybe the registration details stayed in the registry. I thought your watermark was different from the one I had when I had the demo, so, I asked Mojosoft Software and they said,

"Demo version has red watermark "BusinessCards MX". Anyone can use the test version of this program with the watermark on the printout.To remove the notice on the printout you must buy a license and register the program."

I hope that information helps. From my experiences in using this software, it is well worth the $30 and their customer support is amongst the best & most responsive that I've ever dealt with. Even though I don't use this program all the time, it created exactly what I wanted and that peace of mind was worth it for me.
----
@ #187, #188, Celt42. I agree that the term can mean different things to different companies and if people really want to know, they need to ask the company and GOTD for GOTD's definition. I agree about the criticizing grammar, spelling, typos, etc., too. I don't like to do that.

Take care y'all.

Hi Ang:

I use a download manager but when I lose my internet connection it still restarts from the beggining even when using the mirror link. It always tells me that this site does not support resume.


Hmmm...I forgot to mention that it usually works better when one selects the mirror link [ie., "Mirror link #1"]. I just tested the resume function in "FreeDownloadManager", "FreshDownload", and "OrbitDownloader" with the GAOTD's Wed Aug 27 offering and they all were able to correctly resume the download where they left off.

Out of curiosity, which download manager are you using?

This back and forth snarling about what "non-commercial" actually means is quite entertaining but is not getting us very far. It seems to mean different things to different companies, so why don't those who really want to know simply ask the company, in this case Majo Software?

Hi, I'm still hoping that someone can help me with my problem, asked in #155. Has anyone else had the problem of the words "BUSINESSCARDSM" kitty corner across their business cards in preview and when they printed? If so, what did you do about it? Thanks for taking the time to read. And even more thanks if you can help me!!

#182, lostamoeba, thanks for stating where the grid size setting is. You can enter your own value, as well as using the up and down arrows. The up and down arrows don't follow standard UI conventions. Instead of using multiples of 0.5, they use increments of 0.5, which matters if you enter your own value.

@ #177- Update.

My first reply to your #177 hasn't gone through yet and I don't know if it will. However, since you requested evidence, I wrote to the lawyers at http://www.chillingeffects.org/ about the meaning of "non-commercial" and they replied, "... there is no single definition of "non-commercial." It would depend on the context in which it was used,and the meanings the parties to the license gave it. Usually, it's better if you're drafting a license to use more specific definitions!"

In legal situations, I trust the knowledge, definitions and experience of lawyers over dictionary. I hope that satisfies your request for "evidence" and understand that there is no sole definition for "non-commercial"

To 178, Belgian Dude
If I'd written what you said that was conceited, pompous and self-opinionated, I'd have put in as long, boring and tiresome a post as yours.
But your reply to me simply reinforces my statement and proves it to everyone yet again.
For that, I'm grateful.

@ #177

(sorry for the double post... the spacing drove me nuts)

Re: 1) Yep, you provided the link that I’ve read many times before you posted it and I’m quite happy that you found it on your own, too. I know they are a valid source of information. Shocked you posted it, as it doesn’t support your argument, though.

Re: your 2). Another surprising aspect is that you admitted they are a valid source of information, then reinforced your agreement of their validity with your “theory of evolution” analogy. In your words (post #177), “Calling that source an opinion is like saying that the “theory of evolution” is just a theory and there for not correct.” So, we are in agreement they are a valid source of information. Thank you.

Why do I thank you? Here’s why. Have you ever written them about the definition of “noncommerical”? I have and here’s what they said,
“It’s just as you say: there is no definitive answer as to precisely what Noncommercial means in the context of the licenses. The best thing I could say to your friends is that what is and isn’t commercial use could only really be defined in a court of law. In the end, it comes down to what a clever lawyer could convincingly argue to a judge. And even then it’s arguable whether that ruling could be called “definitive,” because yet another, higher court could simply overturn the previous ruling. There’s not much that is certain when it comes to law. It’s all open to interpretation and argument, and no two people will have exactly the same understanding.

If anyone claims to know exactly what constitutes commercial use, or also what constitutes a derivative work, then I’d say they haven’t thoroughly thought it through.”

As for validity, keep in mind that licensing is one of their specialties and you even recognize them as a valid source (not that they need your recognition in order to be valid). It’s quite likely that licensing is not your profession or else you would’ve known this information already. Sidenote: “friends” was their choice of words, not mine.

Re: your words to Chazza in your post #178. “It isn’t my fault that you can’t be bothered to do some research. It isn’t my fault that you haven’t read certain things, learned certain things or learned to think for yourself. It isn’t my fault if your education was lacking”. It is your fault that you didn’t bother to read, do your research nor learn to think for yourself and it’s your own fault your education is lacking, other than running to online dictionaries. And if you are thinking of going back to your dictionary definitions again and saying you were only referring to a dictionary definition of “noncommercial” (implied in post #177), remember this: in your post #161, you used the term “non-commerical usage”, which relates to licensing. If you can’t see how that term relates to licensing, think on it some more. By the standards you set, the issue you arose is about licensing, not dictionary definitions. So, the information posted here does apply.

To Belgian Dude, I don’t hold grammatics & spelling against people, but for you, I’ll make an exception because of how you treated others and I don’t care if English is/is not your first language. Your tones implied your English was superior, if not perfect. If you were to hold yourself to the same perfect grammatical & spelling standards that you insulted others here with, then your grammatics & spelling are sub-par. I do understand that there can be typos, but you’re too sharp and would’ve caught that in the proofreading of your perfect English. And if you are going to rant to have your grammatical & spelling errors pointed out, then go back and read what you wrote. If you don’t believe in proofreading, you should. If you don’t have time, make time. If you, Belgian Dude, still cannot find the grammatical errors, then read it again. If you cannot find them, then that should tell you exactly how sub-par your perfect understanding of the English language is, according to your implied perfect English standards that you chose to insult others here with. And just in case you wish to attack my English, I never implied my English was perfect.

I could go on and invalidate more of your statements, but it would serve no purpose and take too much time. Nitpick mine apart as you wish; it doesn’t matter. Your arguments are no longer valid.

To everyone else… I sincerely apologise for this disruption. MX3 has been great software for me. Have a nice day. :o)

@ #181. Try this. In MX3, go to View>>Snap to Grid (it’s the last option). You can also adjust the spacing of the grids by… when they grids are showing, on the right side of the program, click the Settings tab>>Program Settings (sub-tab)>> on the top right of the sub-tab, it’ll say Grid Size. Hope that information helps :o)

Take care!

Very good program compared to other Business Card software I've used. Lots of options. Lots of ways to tweak the card.

Two things for improvement: The 'Line' function it's difficult to get the line exactly straight. It should do something like a 'snap to' to get it exactly right.
Secondly, this program could be made a lot smaller by eliminating most of the graphic stuff. the Clip art folder alone is over 12mb and absolutely nothing I would use.

As a photographer I give out allot of business cards and have been making my own cards for sometime now, but this software by far is more superior to what I have been using. I have more choices of art work, templates and designs than I ever had before and very simple to use.

A few comments on the interface. The "Connect" button gives you access to the "database". The bar which looks like a media player control then becomes active, which lets you add, delete, and modify database entries. It's not necessary to select "Modify", it automatically activates when you change an entry. Be sure to click the "Accept" button (check-mark) after making changes.

U.S. users will need to add State and Zip in the City field. Suite numbers will need to be added to the Street field. When using the templates, the order of those fields will be reversed for U.S. users. You could simply swap the text in the database, but it's cleaner to change which database field the text labels use in the templates.

When using the template wizard, you may not have the database entry you want. No problem, you can change that after the wizard completes. The card-stock selection in the template wizard is strange because it's also shown in the main UI, which has a larger field. Move the template wizard to see the one in the main UI, if you need to (i.e., select the stock in the template wizard, see what you're selecting in the main UI). As I mentioned previously, the scroll-thumb implementation is all messed up (very basic programming).

The text-box resize slider is quicker and easier than adjusting the font size to get text to fit (assuming the slider is visible, which isn't guaranteed). The grid doesn't seem very useful, because I haven't noticed a way to resize or align it. Aligning groups is handy, but you can only horizontally align vertical groups, or vertically align horizontal groups. There doesn't appear to be a good way to control vertical spacing of different text labels. You can use math and the reported locations, but that's a pain.

@ chazza,

It would have helped you if you had been able to show that what I said was wrong. Calling someone a conceited know-it-all doesn't really work if the person in question has demonstrated that what he says is correct and your only recourse is to throw insults.

It isn't my fault that you can't be bothered to do some research. It isn't my fault that you haven't read certain things, learned certain things or learned to think for yourself. It isn't my fault if your education was lacking.

@ lostamoeba (#172),

How about some intellectual honesty?

"Your source’s first paragraph says the definition is not finalized and does not represent a definitive explanation. Therefore, that source is opinion, not fact, and holds no weight to your argument...."

1)I provided the link. Which means that you still haven't shown any evidence to the contrary.
2)Calling that source an opinion is like saying that the "theory of evolution" is just a theory and there for not correct.

"Although you pulled up dictionary definitions,..."

Something that you aren't able to do for your opinion about what a certain word means.

"... as stated already, the definition of “non-commercial” varies on how the company chooses to define it. Not you (the consumer/public)."

Yawn. Yeah, if a company says something is blue then it's blue no matter if the rest of the world thinks is purple. Get real, if dictionaries define a word as meaning one thing you can't in all honesty turn around and say that they are wrong and you are right in thinking that it means something all to gether d i f f e r e n t.

I don't think the words Non-Commercial mean what you think it means.

Yes, businesses use business cards... but that doesn't mean making up a set for your business is commercial usage of the program.

They are saying that you cannot use the program to open up a business card printing store. You can make cards for yourself.. just not to be paid to make them for others.

"# 129 & # 10:

I’m also on [very slow] dial-up and have felt your pain in the past.

To deal with connection loss, you really need to be using some type of download manager. I have used FreshDownload with excellent success for years. I’ve also used Orbit Downloader but lately I have settled on FreeDownloadManager as my preferred download manager. [There are many download manager alternatives if you perform a Google or Yahoo search.]

If set up correctly, each will monitor the clipboard: when you right-click on a file link [ie., such as today's "http://www.giveawayoftheday.com/download/?id=3305&mirror=1"] and select “Copy Link Location” [in Firefox], each program will offer to take over the download. They also have a small “drop basket” window onto which you can alternatively drag via a left-mouse-click the file link. For the majority of files on the internet, these download managers have the ability to resume interrupted downloads."


I use a download manager but when I lose my internet connection it still restarts from the beggining even when using the mirror link. It always tells me that this site does not support resume.

"After a 7 hour DL on a crappy dial up with 12 minutes left to activate."

I Feel for you too. I tried 5 times.. yes 5 times to download this program. The last attempt I had like 45 minutes left to get it installed and registered. Then with approximately 5-10 minutes download time left when I lost internet and the download. It always states that "this site does not support resume". OMG How frustrating!

I am really bummed! I was wanting to get this software, but I got sick, and needless to say, the last thing I wanted to do was get back on the computer:(! I hope this or similar program will be offered again.

I, along with others I see, am really tired of all the complaining. Someone on one of the other days suggested a thumbs up/down for usefulness/whether downloaded or not and a thumbs up/down for whether the program works like it should. I am one who reads quite a few of the comments to determine if I want to download or not. If I see that a lot of people are having problems, then I usually don't download. I just had to have my hard drive replaced this summer because of bad programs, and so I try to check out reviews and such before I download a program. For me, the comments about how well the program performs is the greatest benefit. So I would like to see a better rating system: one for how the program actually works and one for whether people choose to download or not. :)

A real quickie @ #168

As a source for your argument, you linked to http://wiki.creativecommons.org/DiscussionDraftNonCommercial_Guidelines

"These guidelines are a discussion draft only. They are not finalized and they do not represent a definitive explanation of what "NonCommercial" means, in particular they do not represent a definitive statement as to what Creative Commons defines "NonCommercial" to mean."

Your source's first paragraph says the definition is not finalized and does not represent a definitive explanation. Therefore, that source is opinion, not fact, and holds no weight to your argument. Although you pulled up dictionary definitions, as stated already, the definition of "non-commercial" varies on how the company chooses to define it. Not you (the consumer/public).

To Starwolf. I apologise for infringing. I saw his post right after I posted mine, but it's still awaiting moderation.

@ 161.

Re: "non-commercial use". I didn't find one definitive definition for this term, but found several and it seems to depend on how the company wishes to define it. I feel the definition at this site is dependent on the negotiations between GOTD and software companies. So, only GOTD can say exactly how they wish to define it.

Re: $30 shareware. To call a business "cheap" is perspective, but also rude. Personally, I don't have any problems with businesses using freeware, etc. and the companies financial status isn't always the issue. What does it say about the company? To me, it says they're open minded and know that the software they're looking for can come in the form of freeware, open-source, commercial, etc. An example is NASA uses Python, which is a free scripting language.

Re: professional looking cards. That's perspective and dependent on the field the person is in. Perhaps for the industry you're in, a company logo on a card is enough. Some photographers have handed me their cards and on the backsides, they have examples of their photography. I found that to be clever and have never considered that to look cheap or in poor taste; I actually appreciated it and in some cases, I've wanted to see more of their work because of that. I'm not artsy-fartsy by a longshot, but I do prefer to design things myself vs. entrusting others to design "my vision" for me.

Re: less is more. Again, that is perspective and depends on the industry. From my experiences in business, when the person/group tries to dangle carrots in front of me with the "keep them wondering, don't show them all your cards upfront" because "less is more", I tend to not do business with them or pick them up. I prefer to work with people/businesses that are upfront and honest with me about what they bring to the table and how we can help each other. Being self-employed, I don't like to waste time on games when I can be more productive with my time. So, if their card gives me a good idea of what they can do, whether it's through photos, drawings, writing, etc. on their card, that's great and if we can help each other, I'll look more into working with them. I appreciate the time, effort, thought and creativity they put into their cards.

Re: self-employment. I'm not sure if you were trying to be condescending about self-employment, but if you were, I feel there is nothing wrong with self-employment and/or what you consider "little" companies. Several of my friends are self-employed, debt free, have free time and are well into 6 digit incomes. When we talk, the most important thing is they're happy doing what they do, which is often more than most people can say.

As far as the grammatics here, I don't think that's an issue. They're getting their thoughts across and I feel that is what is important. Perhaps their grammatics are just not how you want to see it is all.

To everyone else, sorry about this rant.

Peace

Starwolf,

AVG anti-virus is available for non-commercial usage for free.

Does this mean that there for as long as you don't try to sell AVG that you can install the free version on each and every computer of your entire company? Does this mean that you can install the free version it on any computer of your company? Does this mean that as long as you don't charge money for it that you can install the free version on any of your clients computers (when your clients are using that computer for a business purpose).

NO, NO and NO. Why? Because it would be a benefit not to a private person but to a company.

It isn't me just "thinking" that.
http://www.thefreedictionary.com/noncommercial
http://onlinedictionary.datasegment.com/word/noncommercial
http://dictionary.die.net/noncommercial
http://wiki.creativecommons.org/DiscussionDraftNonCommercial_Guidelines

Care to explain to me how making business cards for your company would make the business card not connected with or engaged in a (your) commercial enterprise?

If you truly think that as long as you don't try to make a profit of making cards for others that it is fine to use this for commercial usage then you should shut down your company because you're clearly a couple of fish short of an aquarium.

If Starwolf is in any way professionally associated with the site they link of to then it means that (s)he can't legally use this program to make cards promoting the sale of their inherent genetic defunct dog breed. FYI: The Shar-Pei is one of many breeds that have been so bred for looks that they are riddled with genetic defects.
(see the BBC documentary that blew the lid of Crufts and the Kennel Club)

One can play around with this program to see if it would be something that could produce a business card for the company but if and when one actually would use it to produce even 1 card to actual give to a client, investor, distributor, etc. one should, legally, buy a license. There's no but's or if's about it. That's it. That is the entire idea behind "non-commercial" usage.

Not even GiveawaOfTheDay can state that they give it another meaning. Not unless they want to re-invent the English language and name every dictionary to be wrong.

Belgian Dude @161
I live in Finland and have a small familly business.
No, my English is not good enough to pass one of your schools in Belgium. We could try Finnish how about that, would you be even fit to go to childrengarten in my country? You already have the behaviour.
Addressing language issues is so cheap.

But you think I'm cheap because I will print cards for my business.
Let me tell you this: I feed 5 people because they have a job with me and I can only do that by being "cheap". I just manage to keep my business, please do you allow me to be cheap.
What authority do you speak from, that you can define non-commercial use. To me this means, not using it with the purpose to trade and make money. And I'm not.
To be more exact, I give the cards to my familly (familly business), how about that.
Do you know much about the law in Finland?
And you even seem to know how I must make my cards and how to make it look professional. You couldn't even run my business with that intolerant smug attitude.

Ghee, another messiah stands before us.

Are you?

Very nice software to print business cards.. has a lots of features..
I really liked it..
Only drawback is that it consumes lot of resources and size is bulky..
But still a good business card software..

Sigh, in the case of a program such as this not for commercial use means you can not use it to produce cards for resale , as in going into business makeing and selling business cards . It is perfectly ok to use it to make business cards for yourself . great program by the way as well.

I downloaded and tried this out late last night.
It is very easy and instinctive to use. Aligning text, moving clip art and other graphics is a snap. You aren't forced into a "snap to" alignment, so you can make the most minor of adjustments without frustration.
It appears to use your computers font files, so if you have any specialized fonts, you can use them as well.
Overall, for ease of use and variety of options, I give it a 9 out of 10.

Oh dear oh dear.

One can't but wonder where some people learned English or where some people learned to read. It is very sad to see even lots of native English speakers with the reading comprehension skills which wouldn't take them past 4th grade in my old primary school.

Non-commercial usage doesn't mean that you are permitted to use it as long as you don't sell the product not does it mean that you can use it as long as you don't sell the things you make with the product.

It does mean that you can't use it if you use it in any way shape or form for other then purely non-profit or private means. Let me spell it out for those of you that still don't get it; you can't use this program (in giveaway mode) to make business cards for your company because doing so would be a direct violation of the terms.

Besides, let's be honest here, what does it say about you and your company that you can't even afford to pay the shareware fee of 30 USD?
That you are cheap, that you don't mind cutting corners, that you like to steal from others,....

About the program.

Except for those that are very artsy-fartsy the best and most pro looking businesscard is one with the logo of the company and the necessary information (name, tel., addy, fax, email, website)
Pictures and all that only makes your company look cheap or do you think that for example people at Boeing have business cards with pictures of airplanes on it? No, less is more if you want to be and act professional.

So who is going to use this? Can't be big, medium or little companies, they let others do it for them. Even non-profit organizations with any sense will let some printer do it for them.

Which leaves the very little companies a.k.a. the self employed, the people with too much time, the people with high opinions about themselves and anyone else who doesn't have cards but wants them.

Shoot.. I missed downloading this one before heading off for a nap. I expected I'd be up again by ten pm and have plenty of time to check out GOTD. Bummer. I'll be watching in the hopes it shows up a third time!

This seems like a great little (in what it's objectives are, not size!) program. Seems to make every aspect of the design possible to modify, and the included templates make it easy to get a start without having to start absolutely from scratch.

Thank you, GAOTD!!

This giveaway appears to have an audience of happy users saying how glad they are for having this software hosted today, but it isn't what I'm looking for. If this were an image editing program that could be comparable to Paint Shop Pro I would be interested.
thanks but no thanks

Gepetto88 (#143) Thanks for your reply. Yes I did all that, but I'm fairly new on this site and I thought everything had to be registered. So when I tried, it did ask for a code.

ww2vet56 (#144) I did read though all the comments, but I guess not everything I read "registered" with me. LOL

Since I have such amazing help here, I have another problem.

I designed some business cards but when I finished and wanted to print them they had "BUSINESSCARDSM" printed kitty-corner across the front of them in red. For the heck of it I printed them anyway to see if that printed too, and it did. So what am I doing wrong now?

Thanks again!!!

Yay--loved this last time it was offered (Version 3.43) Makes great introduction cards. I'm a contractor (I work through agencies, so I don't own a business.) Also looking for full-time in between. But it's a great way to get out the word of what you do to potential employers or at "networking" get-togethers. Get some nice, shiny sturdy business card paper with tiny perforations and a good laser-jet. The cards take no time to put together and give you a polished, professional look.

This would also be great for graduating high school seniors who trade name cards (do they still do that?)

Thank you :) Just made a few flash cards for my g'son :) Awesome!
Working on XP Professional SP2. I usually use publisher - thought I'd give this a go - this was such an easy program to install & use my daughter may just give it a go. Thank you again. A definite thumbs up from me!

Good going GOTD team! What a nice Sunday. BusinessCards MX 3.92 is a great program, downloaded with no problems and is user friendly. Then to top off things I went to your sister site, GGOTD, and got Mythic Adventures. It feels like my BIRTHDAY! :) Thank You!!

Thank you GAOTD. Everyone should have a personal card it's so handy to have. If you happen to have a name hard to spell you just give the card.
Meeting someone you haven't seen for ages and are in a hurry just give the card. A good easy program, thank you.

One of the nicer programs I've seen offered in a very long time. These are some superb templates. Much better than Publisher 2007 or VistaPrint. Thanks, GAOTD and Mojosoft!

I'm pleased to see the response to the outbreak of stupidity that polluted today's commments. Comment #7 - you truly are one of the world's prize idiots. As others have said, comment on the software, not whether it's what you want or not. I've tried this software and found it very useful. I also use online services such as Vistaprint but to get a decent design it does start to cost more with those services. I would probably use today's software to creat the design and then give it to a professional printer.

Works for me on vista home prem. "About" showed me it was registered and a link to other templates which took me right to the free templates. Nice program. I installed it as "Admin" and it registered with no code or anything from me.
I'm Happy!

Thanks GAOTD!

Seemed to install fine on Vista Home Premium, and seemed to load ok. I selected design editor instead of wizard to start, and first wanted to be sure program registered properly. I clicked on "About" in the Tools menu, and a nice dialog box appeared showing registration worked. BUT, there was NO WAY TO EXIT the About box. No buttons, no close box ("X" in upper right hand corner). It did look like the bottom portion of the box was cut off, maybe I'm using large system font and the exit button and text wouldn't all fit? Anyway, I had to kill the entire program's process to get rid of it. Haven't tried to start it again, but if this is any indication of overall quality of software, I may uninstall before trying again. Thanks, GAOTD for bringing us another potentially useful program, but Mojosoft may have more work to do.
