Last night I got an email from Paddle - a company that does deals and describes itself as 'the easiest way to buy and discover digital content.'

Their email said they had a deal through Bundlehunt and the blurb for that said

$7.00? How could I say no?

Well at least it was worth a look. Some bits didn't interest me, but I'd seen the themes from Themify - and here was a chance to take two and see how they behaved. And two months hosting for free with Pixeno meant I would have somewhere to host them.

I took up the offer of the deal, chose the Sidepane and Edmin Wordpress themes from Themify, (I already had a spare domain I could use) and set up the hosting.

Time will tell, but the host (Pixeno is based in the UK with its datacenter in Maidenhead) is behaving nicely and everything is working nice and fast.

So now I am just looking at the one month free Adobe training with TrainSimple. The intro panel when I joined for my free 30 days training says:

You're now ready to view our entire collection of training videos. You have unlimited access, watch what you want when you want. Each time you login to your account, you will be brought to your account page. You can manage your subscription, view recently viewed courses, and find our most recent releases. Start Learning! 
Tell the world you have access to Train Simple's training library

So, as I am writing this there are 45 hours left on the deal at Bundlehunt
