1222 FlashBack: A Commercial Electronic Journal For Sun Users

     FlashBack is an Electronic Journal that is distributed by email
     over the Internet to 130,000+ Sun users. You can use FlashBack to
     stay informed about the Sun marketplace. Information about
     products, services, or events of interest to Sun users comes
     directly from their vendors.

1223 Why You Should Sponsor FlashBack Articles

     This article says why you should use FlashBack to promote your
     company, its products or services directly to large numbers of
     influential Sun employees, users and VARs.

75.35 What is SunFlash ?

     This is a brief description of SunFlash, the first free Electronic
     Journal dedicated to Sun users. SunFlash delivers news, features,
     press-releases, newsletters, and information directly from Sun to
     Sun users. Up to 100 articles per month delivered by electronic
     mail. Nine editions available including daily and weekly summaries
     in standard or multi-media mail

9001 General FlashBack/SunFlash Information

     This article contains general information about the electronic
     journals that I edit and publish: "SunFlash" , "The Sun FlashBack"
     and "The Internet Sun FlashBack"

     I produced "The Florida SunFlash" for nearly six years. "SunFlash"
     is the continuation of that journal. When "SunFlash" grew to about
     100 articles per month, 140,000+ subscribers and 30,000+ article
     requests per month I decided that it was time to make some
     changes. For a variety of reasons, I started the two new journals,
     "The Sun FlashBack" and "The Internet Sun FlashBack" , and moved
     production of all three journals to an independent company with
     its own resouces and Internet domain (FlashBack.COM).

9002 FlashBack and SunFlash Index

     This article contains a one line index entry for each of the
     articles posted to "SunFlash" , "FlashBack" and "The Internet
     FlashBack"

     FlashBack articles. Annual Sponsorship and per-article fee
     information is also provided.
