The competition, ran with the help of Tsohost, has now expired. The following people have won and will be contacted by Tsohost soon:

  • Lise Caron
  • Allen Adamson
Congratulations Lise and Allen!

Last year I wrote a review on CompanionLink Professional v3 and CompanionLink gave us three licenses of CompanionLink Professional (worth $99.95), as well as their RunStart installation service (worth $39), which three lucky Windows Guides readers won.

Recently, CompanionLink have released their version 4 edition of their software, which I must say I love more than v3! I have posted an updated review here.

Very kindly, CompanionLink have given us three licenses of CompanionLink Professional and their RunStart installation service for three lucky Windows Guides readers again!

To enter, all you have to do is visit this survey by Sunday the 15th of May (11:59PM BST) and answer the questions on the survey. We’ll then enter you into our competition, and you could win.

Email addresses will be kept private (as always) however we will share the three winners’ details with CompanionLink for obvious reasons.

You can also download a 14-day free trial over at the CompanionLink website, by clicking here.

If you are using a smaller Laptop (netbook etc.) you are facing the problem (or should I say challenge) of  low screen resolution.

The lack of space (on your screen)  makes it difficult to see all the information you want at all times. I use my netbook as my primary email and communication computer. Mostly because of its handy size and portability. The resolution is a mere 1024x600px which is to say at least not very High-Res. When it comes to using programs like Outlook, Word etc. with large ribbons or toolbars, the space available for work is, somewhat limited.

Luckily Office has one feature that gives me a bit more space for my chores: Temporarily hiding the Ribbons   Read more…

Following my post on creating a WordPress site, I contacted Tsohost who have very kindly given us two free Pro cPanel subscriptions for a year (worth £50 / about $85 each) on their lightning-fast servers for two lucky readers! The instructions for creating a WordPress site were created on one of these cPanel servers, so they will be the same. Tsohost have wonderful customer service as well (replies in minutes) just in case there are any problems!
