Discount on program price

March 7, 2017 Leave a comment

I’ve created ShixxNOTE program before almost 12 years ago. First awarded version was ShixxNOTE 4.net. Program was published on DVD by croatian BUG magazine specialized for computers, gadgets and shareware programs. Back then BUG magazine rated my program with 10/10. Now after so many years and many changes in the program, I decided to put discount on ShixxNOTE 6.net program price. So check program order page and purchase your version 🙂

I hope you will appreciate this.

ShixxNOTE Quick look video

July 12, 2012 3 comments

Editors from FindMySoft site created short video for ShixxNOTE program. So now you can look video here or at the program home page site. Video is cool. Still I have plan to release more video material for ShixxNOTE especially about sending notes. Because in this video there is only just a quick look at the program. But I always say that ShixxNOTE is not just simple desktop sticky note program, it is also LAN messenger with many communication options.

Click play and enjoy this short video !

ShixxNOTE Licensing policy and registering program

March 28, 2012 7 comments

Maybe you know maybe you didn’t but ShixxNOTE program is a shareware program. After you download program from pogram download site or some other shareware download site(s) you get ShixxNOTE trial 30-days valid version with full functionality. When 30-days period is expired you can register ShixxNOTE and became program customer with full tech support. On program order page http://www.shixxnote.com/html/order_now.html you can select which license you want, which license suits your needs and then click on the button “Buy Now”. Then you will be transferred to my payment processor company SWREG which is part of Digital River, Inc. company and MyCommerce solution. There you can choose method of payment, currency, if you want they can save program to CD and send it to you. Anyway SWREG accept all types of payment so don’t worry.

After you buy ShixxNOTE 6.net 5-Users License you will receive email with download link for you registered version. Off course that link will be valid only for few days after that it expires. 5-Users License means that you can install ShixxNOTE registered version on 5 different computers (5 different IP addresses). If you have some small company with 5 computers and some extra one, than 5-Users License will be enough.

After you install program on that 5 computers in your LAN, program will automatically at Windows start run network neighborhood search. Program is server and client in same time. It have one thread which is always listening on port 2000 (default, can be changed) for ShixxNOTE note data. When you send note to for example 4 recipients in your LAN they will promptly create desktop note and play sound when note data is received through port 2000. That is one way how program communicate. Also you can put in a recipient list email address, IP address or name of computer in your LAN which doesn’t have program installed. Then what ?

ShixxNOTE will first try to send note data to that entered computer name or IP address if port is not open (maybe some firewall is blocking port 2000) than it will try to use NET SEND command to deliver just a message text and sender name. So you do not need to have ShixxNOTE installed to receive text from someone  who has installed program. That NET SEND command is part of Windows Messenger service but it works only Windows 9X/Me and XP/2K if you enable it in your services. I wrote before article about how to start that service on Windows XP/2K. I didn’t forget email recipient. For that program first create note picture in JPEG or BMP format, after that it create email with note picture in an attachment and all necessary note informations in email body, also email subject contains text “ShixxNOTE note from” computer. When email recipient receives note he will see it in his Inbox first but if he has ShixxNOTE installed on computer than right mouse click on ShixxNOTE tray icon and on main program menu select “Check for Email notes”. After you click on that menu item program will search through your Inbox and will find all emails created by ShixxNOTE program and if email contains all necessary data in body program will parse data from email and create note on computer desktop, after that it will clean Inbox and delete that mail.

Finally maybe now you are aware how program works. And I tried to describe all three was how ShixxNOTE program is sending note to recipient (directly through port, NET SEND command and via email). So I hope you will go to ShixxNOTE program homepage and buy program license which most suits your needs. Maybe in your company or ar home. But I will be glad to have one more customer.

To be sure you will not miss “Buy Now” button on program homepage. These are direct order links for ShixxNOTE program versions which will redirect you to secure payment processor site:

P.S. Check for special offer on ShixxNOTE program home page. Also for more info about license write directly to me. Because I also can make customized version or modified version to suit your need.

Check popular encyclopedia Wikipedia and you will find ShixxNOTE in it. There is a page with all info about ShixxNOTE program and some images.

Default and saved Themes in ShixxNOTE

October 15, 2011 Leave a comment

By default in ShixxNOTE program you have 11 default themes. This notes can not be deleted. But you can always change note and title color, note font and after that if you like your new customized theme you can save it under your own name. That saved note will appear on every note. So you create new note and apply your saved Theme and voila colors and font is changed. I have about 20 Themes on my computer. But I am always playing with colors. Also there is option that every new created note have random Theme. Check that under main program settings. On this image you can see only 11 default notes which will be avaiable in version 7.net which will be released soon. If you have some cool note themes you can send me note by email and then I can save your note theme in my theme collection.

So check this picture to see how to get ShixxNOTE program main menu on Windows 7 if tray icon is not visible.

ShixxNOTE 7.net New version release date

February 16, 2011 5 comments

It is time for new version of my program ShixxNOTE. There are lot of changes (autodetect URL in note text, transparency, etc.) and fixes in program which you will be able to see on page “What’s new” on program home page. New program version ShixxNOTE 7.net will work on any Windows platform. It doesn’t need any framework or runtime so you can install program on old Windows 95 or new Windows 7. Still program is written in C++ and because of that it is quick, small and neat. It is client/server application so you have to enable default port “2000” for program in your firewall to work properly. Because one program thread is listening on default port for received note data. In new version there is new function for reading your network (LAN) at program startup and it is faster then previous one. New version release will be available for download in April 2013.
On this image you can see screen shot of ShixxNOTE 7.net beta version:

Every potential customer who register current ShixxNOTE 6.net program version till December 2012 will get new stable version of ShixxNOTE 7.net and a license bonus for the same price.

So register now current program release and get license bonus for new version which will be released in April, 2013
