Download Free PDF Document Creation Software

The Great Book Giveaway

Interested in distributing my forthcoming book FREE, I was attracted to sites offering free PDF document-creation software. That was AFTER Adobe choked, REFUSING to load on the creaky cranky computer I cobbled together and was able to make Windows Millenium Edition run on.

I tried different places: HERE and THERE. I kept hitting brick walls.

NONE of the software programs that provide a "virtual printer" - like WinPDF, would work on my machine. I found something on an FTP site called llSPDFEdit.exe (aka Simple PDF Editor 1.0), which worked but couldn't make page seperations on the PDF documents it produced, which, when opened under Adobe Acrobat, would freeze Acrobat [Not Responding], forcing a ctrl+alt+delete reset.

Then, on an old diskette, I found "Simple PDF Editor" (version 2.0) which apparently was crippled beyond use. It was only when, in desperation, I conducted a search for a warez reg code or keygen for "Simple PDF Editor" (no longer supported by the company that marketed it) that I was able to find FREE PDF document creation that actually WORKS! EUREKA!

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
