6736Re: [prox] Free legit Opera registration codes.
- Sep 1, 2005Alec,
Thanks immensely for this post, including the news one! I took
advantage of the offer, and also sent my NoteTabPro Web-making buddy
after it for herself, too.
She and I both got free registration codes. I've been so swamped I
would have missed your post, except that I happened to notice the
subject line as it came in - what a blessing for me!

thought they were hilarious!
I was amazed that a couple of people posted the registration codes
they saw. Apparently they thought the codes were generic, or
something like that? My compute-knowledge is extremely limited, but
since you're given a code after you enter your name and email
address, I'd presume the code you received would -ummm - apply to
your name and email address <g>.
Later, Lotta, I saw your message, and was very, very glad you posted
that information too, including this:

too - she's only learning about her machine (also how to build her
own web site), and I'm doing all I can to help her learn, which is
why she now has NoteTabPro <g>.
So she's there, I'm in Western Canada (Pacific time). I got into a
muddle over my code, in a bit the same way as is mentioned on that
page Alec provided the link to.
I never did get email with the code, but I DID see, the second time I
went back, to try to get my code again, a remark on the page that you
should copy your code, and save it somewhere! I don't think they did
any email notifications with the code; I never received any, and
those people were saying they also didn't. Some had long waits for
their codes; I didn't; my friend didn't, either.
I even posted on the Opera Registration Problems forum about it,
haha! Didn't really get a useful answer. I guess they don't email the
free codes; there's no purchase to confirm/thank people for!
Anyway, I installed a webdeveloper toolbar, hated it, and reinstalled
Opera as a result, and without checking, I went back to that free
registration page again, and got another free registration, shortly
before midnight Pacific Daylight Time. So I'm guessing the offer was
valid for a machine in a different time zone, as long as the date was
still 30 August. Interesting.
So thanks to both of you for your posts, and Alec, for your pointer
to that hilarious page!
Note: I can't keep up with anything; will be in a state of overload
for some time to come, so can't even be courteous sometimes (replying
to posts, for instance). sorry!
(Not that my posts have anything special about them! I enjoy posting,
