    Fantastic! Thank you Brains!

    I love Snak. More so than X-Chat.

    This thread would also be good in here:

    Thanks for the heads-up.

    Just received my email.

    Key works great!

    To help others: you need to enter it inside the Edit menu, which isn't where you'd expect it to be.

    Edit > Enter Licence Key


    EDIT
    Instructions were in the email. I guess I should read everything! :o
    To enter the key, please start Snak and pull down the "Edit" menu and (depending on the Snak version) choose either "Enter key" or "Registration". In the latter case, press the "Enter Key" button in the dialog that comes up.

    LOL +1 to "I just received my email".

    Thanks for the info, though.

    Emailed them for mine last night. Haven't got a reply yet. I hope they're not being choosy. Maybe I should have said something like "hooray for Obama!" or "God bless the United States of America!" in the email :P

    Is Snak any good? I've been using Colloquy - actually the only IRC client I've ever used on a Mac. It's decent, but there's things about it that annoy me. From what I've seen, Snak looks a little less pretty but more functional in comparison.

    Snak is like mIRC (on Windows) to me. I prefer it over all else.

    It was the first IRC client I used on Mac.

    Reemix, it took quite a while for mine to come through as well. I just had "Free licence" in the email subject and it came through fine. I've seen the offer on quite a few websites so I would say they would have a few emails :P

    Cool, IRC is always handy to have (even though I don't use it much these days). Thanks for the thread.

    Huy: Yeah, I agree that it seems a lot like mIRC. Man, even the mention of that brings back memories. Was anyone else an IRC junkie back in the day? It was where all the cool kids would hang out! Well, okay, maybe the not so cool kids... ;P

    The Loyal: Cool, I pretty much just wrote the same thing in the email. So I'll stay hopeful!

    I just requested a licence, but was rebuffed

    Thank you for requesting a free Snak license. We appreciate the interest, but unfortunately the Obama Celebration Giveaway is over. It was a great success with close to 1500 free licenses handed out.
    Ohwell.. worth a try.

    Bugger… I only sent off the request about an hour ago. Haven't had any response yet though, so we shall see what happens

    w00t! got my code. Thanks for sharing this with us (and thanks for Obama for winning - good times for Americans)

    edit: yeah I probably was the last few who got the code since I registered 1 hour ago. The confirmation email was near instant.

    Yep, just got mine too. Well actually, I got it almost instantly, but for some reason my Gmail wasn't being retrieved by Apple Mail. Just gave it a kick and now all is good
