    Debate Synergy Program File

    So, I've been out of debate for a while now, but I've been using Debate Synergy in college since it's really good for organizing my notes. Problem is, my old laptop that had debate synergy has recently broken and after trying to find debate synergy for my new laptop, I either find it on exclusive membership wikis, the web app, or phishing/virus sites. If anyone could provide the file or give a link leading to a valid download link that would be great. I'm looking for the debate synergy with the toolbar at the top of MS Word. Thank you.

    Blocks and the Flow

    Okay, so I've been debating for quite a while and just recently, I both got on cross-x and the national circuit big-stick tournaments. I recently learned how to give a 1AR correctly (the 2AC + comparison - fluff; basically) and I've run into a large problem when reading: the 2NC, the 2AR, and especially the 2NR. I've lost many debates this season because I simply fail to contextualize arguments. My strategy is usually one-off case in the 2NC, which I either choose or the 1NR argument in the 2NR. I utilize a blocked out file with every answer imaginable which I then throw into a speech, separated into the Perm debate, link debate, impact debate, etc. This strategy used to work very well for me, before judges started wanting contextualization and refusing to flow things unless they fell down the flow with analysis. I read off a computer primarily, using my flows as an extra, and only read off of them for end-of-speech stuff (Ex. "They say TVA, I answered that above, it's impossible...") but I don't really use them for line-by-line. My blocks consisted of "blocky" overviews which I explained (sort of) later. The fact is, that this simply doesn't work in the 2NR. My question is, how do you as a negative debater, utilize the relationship between the flows and the computer, the line-by-line and pre-written blocks, to effectively give a speech in the 2NC and the 2NR. I know this varies greatly in terms of strategy and style, that's why I'm asking for a general understanding. Note: I already looked through the forums, not really sure where I could find this answered. Another Note: If you have any suggestions for practice speeches/ LBL drills as well, that would be cool.

    Flowing on the computer

    For going into the start of the incoming year, I was trying to find a format or template for flowing a policy round on the computer. Does anyone have any templates for how to do this? Or does anyone have any thoughts on if flowing on the computer is easier than flowing on multiple pieces of paper?
