I found a way to support Hanselminutes
I have a 35 minute commute to and from work, and lately I've started listening to Scott Hanselman's Hanselminutes.com. It's a great show. Scott and Carl have a nice banter style conversation that (I think) includes most of the audience. Scott get's started talking about something to deep, and Carl says "wait a minute; so you mean ...."
This blog post, started out as a simple "thank you" to Scott and Carl for producing Hanselminutes. But then I thought, they've heard that before. Of course they know it's a good show, look at the following. Instead of just saying thank you, I've decided to say thank you financially by giving to the American Diabetes Association (ADA). Scott has a goal of raising $50,000 for ADA, and as of today, he's only reached 45% of his goal. Uhh, it's August, if something doesn't happen soon, that goal doesn't look like it's going to be hit.
I have a product called EasySearchASP.net. It's a little search engine product that is very easy to use, and is meant to be plug-n-play style for an asp.net website. It's a great little product that works well for content sites that have less than 2500 pages. The only draw back is that it doesn't support indexing binary (PDF, DOC, XLS) files. But if your site (like most sites) is textual, then it's a great product. The product sells for $99.00 and $249.00. The only difference is that the $99 version, has a 200 page limit, which is more than enough for most marketing sites.
the end of the August September 7th 2007, all proceeds from EasySearchASP.net will be given to ADA for Scott Hanselman to help him meet his goal. In order to get as many sales as possible, I'm offering the following coupon code "H", that will discount the price of $99 version of EasySearchASP.NET to $10.15, and the $249 version is discounted to $25.15.
Use the coupon "H" or "Hanselman", and the discounted prices will be displayed on the product page.
I would also challenge other companies to steeply discount there products with a "H" or "Hanselman" coupon code. Let's get Scott to his $50,000 goal.
