DRAGON'S BREATH The Official Newsletter of Heroes and Dragons http://www.heroesanddragons.com ________________________________________________________________ From: [email protected] v7.28: May 27, 2002 - Memorial Day Sale Reminder ________________________________________________________________ CONTENTS: >> Memorial Day Sale Reminder ... The Savings Continue on Monday! >> New Comics One Day Late After Memorial Day ... (Another Reminder) >> New Material in the DRAGON'S BREATH Archive >> Sites to See ... Updates on Some Recent Recommendations ________________________________________________________________ >> MEMORIAL DAY SALE REMINDER ... THE SAVINGS CONTINUE ON MONDAY! ________________________________________________________________ Don't forget: Our Memorial Day Weekend Sale is still going on, until the close of business on MONDAY NIGHT (MAY 27)! We will be open regular hours all day on Memorial Day -- that's 11:00am 'til 9:00pm, in case you've forgotten! The following discounts apply all day on MEMORIAL DAY: - 50% off ALL IN-STORE BACK ISSUES (including our famous $1.00 comics!) - 20% off almost EVERYTHING ELSE in the store! (Well, O.K., it really *is* everything else! No "almost" to it -- except that we're not paying our employees 20% less ... .) As usual, sale prices do not apply to items listed on the web site or up for auction at eBay. If an item is marked "MAX DISC" or "NO DISC," the sale does not apply. Items in the convention display case are not on sale. (Those few items will be clearly marked. So if you don't see a sticker or sign on it -- YES, IT'S ON SALE!) For complete details, visit http://www.heroesanddragons.com or http://www.heroesanddragons.com/ComingEvents/MemorialDaySale.htm. (Sale details were missing from the front page of the site on Saturday, but they're there now!) And remember: To take advantage of these sale prices, mail-order requests must arrive before midnight on May 27! >> NEW COMICS ONE DAY LATE AFTER MEMORIAL DAY ... (ANOTHER REMINDER) ________________________________________________________________ Next week's new comics will arrive one day late due to the Memorial Day holiday. Comics arrive on THURSDAY, MAY 30, and will be on sale by 3:30pm at the latest. For a complete list of what's coming (and cover scans for Marvel and DC comics), visit this page: http://www.heroesanddragons.com/NewThisWeek >> NEW MATERIAL IN THE "DRAGON'S BREATH" ARCHIVE ________________________________________________________________ As you may know, we maintain an archive of previous issues of this newsletter at our web site. So if you've missed a recent issue or want to look for a previous "Site to See" or feature that appeared here, you can browse our online archive. You'll find the archive at the bottom of the page at http://www.heroesanddragons.com/DragonsBreath. (Yep, that's the same page where you can sign up to receive this nifty newsletter. If someone forwarded this to you, you can get your very own copy by signing yourself up!) I've also added a link to the archive in the "credits" section of DRAGON'S BREATH, so you can get there quickly and easily from any issue of the newsletter published after today. (It's the last line before "CONTACT INFORMATION.") I've also made some minor (very minor!) revisions to the DRAGON'S BREATH FAQ (answers to our most Frequently Asked Questions). If you're interested, go to the archive (http://www.heroesanddragons.com/DragonsBreath/Start.htm#Archive) and click on the link at the very bottom of the page -- "7.0.6 (FAQ) - last updated May 24, 2002." >> SITES TO SEE ... UPDATES ON SOME RECENT RECOMMENDATIONS ________________________________________________________________ In DRAGON'S BREATH v7.25, I told you about They Might Be Giants' forthcoming album NO! and the super-cool Flash site they've put up on the web to promote it. However, I gave you the wrong address for the site! It's *not* located at GiantKid.com, but rather: http://www.GiantKid.net I did give you the right address for the amazing free software called Belarc Advisor -- but now I've got a little something for the Macintosh users in the audience! Like Belarc Advisor, this program lists all the programs installed on your machine, along with version numbers and serial numbers, with a single click of the mouse! It's called Apple System Profiler and can be found at: http://developer.apple.com/testing/docs/TNsystemprofiler.html And just in case some of you PC users didn't bookmark the address for Belarc Advisor, it is: http://www.belarc.com/free_download.html Apple System Profiler gets high marks from the Kim Komando radio computer show (http://www.Komando.com), but I've never used it myself. Belarc Advisor, on the other hand, has my highest recommendation. If any Belarc employees are reading this newsletter, contact me about advertising! ;) Have a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend! --- DRAGON'S BREATH ________________________________________________________________ ABOUT THIS MAILING LIST ________________________________________________________________ DRAGON'S BREATH is written and administered by Scott Simmons for Heroes and Dragons.
