That's right! Advertise for free in GIF News today! Anything under

1/5 of a page is absolutely free! Advertise your BBS, advertise your

business, advertise anything of interest to the computer world. All you

have to do is mail your ad to me 10 days before the next issue is due

out (i.e. June 21st for the July/Aug 1991 issue). Also, please consider

a small donation or contribution if you enjoy reading GIF News. You will

help offset the cost of long distance calls to upload GIF News to a BBS

near you, plus you'll get a bigger ad space. I make no profit, and I

create GIF News as a hobby and to help the free exchange of information.

If you want to advertise a BBS, all I ask is that you add me to your user

roster, giving me a normal user account and password (which you can mail

to me along with your ad).

Remember, to keep a free AD in GIF News, you must notify me 10 days

before an issue is due out that you want to the AD to be in it. You must

do this everytime. GIF News is bimonthly so you only need to do it every

other month. This is necessary to make sure that an AD on a BBS is up-to

-date, and that GIF News is not advertising a BBS that no longer exists.

It's also easier for me to keep track of ads for my records.
