WinRAR is giving away their popular archiver application for free today, July 30th only. This version can not be upgraded to any future versions beyond 3.51.


As I KNOW anyone making a comic needs to compress files, check out this alternative to WinZip, it's pretty damn swank...and free today!

Hopefully it's not, I'll try again later. :blink:

Since it was so hard on their servers, they're doing it again on servers that can handle it. NOW: http://nct.digitalriver.com/fulfill/0233.001
