I promised in the Dec. 10 newsletter that I’d notify Windows Secrets subscribers this week about a free service we’ve added to our site.
You have a chance to take advantage of this resource right now, today, with a giant head start — most Internet users still can’t find it using search engines.
The treat I’ve been preparing for you all year long is a giant discussion board packed with tricks on every version of Windows and almost every kind of software application you can think of. After more than a decade as Woody’s Lounge — yes, the one started by our own senior editor, Woody Leonhard — the site, thanks to Woody, is now known as the Windows Secrets Lounge.
This is no ordinary chit-chat site. The Lounge is an incredible repository of Windows expertise. More than 700,000 posts are in there, organized into some 125,000 threads. This immense knowledge base covers everything you need to know to make Windows and your apps work for you instead of against you.
I’m not going to go into the Lounge’s entire history right now. Let me just summarize by saying the board got its start around 1995 — even Woody himself doesn’t recall the exact date — and has had its ups and downs since then.
