      I would also love a xobni invite if you still have any, its getting to the point where i would lie, cheat steal, and possibly even sell my own mother for an invite, it just looks so cool. Please let me know if you’ve got any left, thanks a lot :)

      Thanks for the recent mention of PDF Hammer. I just wanted to let you know that we’ve released version 2.0 (beta) of the free PDF editor. Users can now secure PDF files and add metadata to them, as well as edit and merge pages.

      I’d love to hear what you think about the latest version.

      BTW, there’s also now zoom functionality. Just double click on any page and you’ll get a larger view.
