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).

     posted to "SunFlash" , "FlashBack" and "The Internet FlashBack"
