Advertizing on USENET, specifically csa8

(Re: Bravo Sierra and advertizing on USENET.)
I feel that Mr. Smith follows good USENET advertizing
practices. (Picking apart his copy is, well, a bit of
nitpicking.) He doesn't post ads more than once a week or
so. He has a web site to get more information, and even
posts or has a voice line for his business. He doesn't take
a lot of space with multiple, LARGE, ads. And his ads are
strictly on topic.

And he participates in the group. I believe the above is in
keeping with the FAQ, 'Advertizing on the Internet: How to
do it, how not to do it.' as posted in news.newusers (that
may not be the exact usenet group, it is an official usenet
policy newgroup, moderated, I believe.) Russ


1. C Compilers -- GST specifically

Most of the reviews of GST-C emphasize that it does not support floating
point, which is not terribly important for most systems programming
(except graphics).  However, when I took a look at the package I was
surprised to discover that it does not support structures (or unions).
I can't see much value in a compiler that doesn't implement one of the
most valuable features of modern programming languages and that
restricts the user to primitive data structures.
