ANNOUNCE: HyperSnap-DX 4 is here! Download from http://www.hyperionics.com

*** Capture and edit images in one simply yet powerful package. ***
HyperSnap-DX 4 is here! Download from:
http://www.hyperionics.com
MAJOR UPDATE! HyperSnap-DX 4 is a screen capture tool for Windows.
Captures screens from standard desktop programs and hard-to-grab
DirectX/Direct3D, 3Dfx Voodoo and Glide mode games. HyperSnap-DX 4 even
snags frames from many DVD players and other video software.

The program can auto-scroll and concurrently capture long web pages and
other documents, enabling it to grab more than is visible on the screen.
The program integrates with the Windows clipboard, and has new painting
and editing features, too.

Version 4.x contains many new or improved features requested by our users.
These include improved handling of 3dfx 32 bit color mode screens, a
completely new set of color and image manipulation tools, improved
printing, tight integration with the Windows system tray, new painting
tools added to the button palette, the ability to set the Windows
wallpaper, "send by e-mail" feature within the program that lets you send
captures across the Internet, and a comprehensive help system that
provides context-sensitive "pop-up" help for virtually every aspect of the
program.

ANNOUNCE: TECHWR-L Annual Sponsorships Now Available

Companies, organizations, or groups who support or benefit
from the technical communication community can now help
promote further development of TECHWR-L resources.

In developing TECHWR-L, we chose not to use paid
subscription or fee-based models but, instead, chose to
develop the TECHWR-L list, Web site, and variety of services as
free resources to the community as a whole. We would like to
continue making TECHWR-L and its variety of services available
at no cost to the technical writing community because we think
they meet a significant information need. In short, we think
providing these services for free is simply the right thing to do.

Your company's sponsorship will help us continue to maintain
and develop the TECHWR-L community, which includes acquiring new
original content and developing new features, services, and
materials that meet the changing needs of the technical writing
community.

Where to start?
First, for more information, see
http://www.raycomm.com/techwhirl/sponsorships.html
Second, tell your boss, supervisor, or company president just how
important TECHWR-L is to you, and suggest that their support would
be invaluable in helping further develop these resources.
Finally, after your company has agreed, contact Eric
(ejray -at- raycomm -dot- com) to set up the sponsorship and to arrange for
your "Thank you" dinner.
