ADS NEEDED: Seeking set of "house ads" for TECHWR-L

We need to commission a set of "house ads" for TECHWR-L that
we can run in the general ad rotation as well as to fill in
for missing ads.

In particular, we need banner ads in the 468x60 and 160x300
sizes. A generic badge of 125x60 would also be useful.

Text ads for the Premium Announcements could be helpful, but
are not critical.

Please contact me directly with proposals/suggestions/ideas.

Payment is negotiable--it could be a direct payment, or payment
in kind, or something else...we can talk. I'm less interested
in a specific price point than in a proposal that fully meets
our needs in a very flexible manner.

Let me know what you think, offline, please.
Eric

ANN: Java training video for tech-writers now available.

An important new tool for technical writers is being
launched by Third Wave Studios, a Montreal-based provider
of training videos and workbooks for professional writers
in the hi-tech industry.

The Just Enough Java: Workshop-on-a-DVD is a full
technical writing workshop on video. It provides writers with
an understanding of just enough Java to decode a Java
source file and make an educated guess about the purpose of
each function. Enabling them to work with software developers
to create useful documentation for Software Development
Kits (SDKs) and Application Programming Interfaces (APIs).

Full of illuminating advice, easy-to-follow examples,
practical exercises and a hard copy workbook, it is designed
and presented by award-winning, 25-year veteran
writer-programmer, Manuel Gordon, based on his highly
popular seminar of the same name.

To view a short preview or read the table of contents go to
http://www.thirdwavestudios.com/gg/java_preview.html.

The Just Enough Java: Workshop-on-a-DVD includes:
- The training workshop on two DVDs
(running time: 3 hours, 40 min.)
- A Getting Started booklet with training suggestions
- A 173-page workbook with slide printouts, exercises,
a glossary and a bibliography

In addition, as a Special Introductory Offer, we will include
your choice of two of our other technical writing workbooks
for FREE with each purchase.

Find out how easy it is to learn just enough Java, todays
most widely used programming language, and take advantage
of the growing demand for technical writers who understand
the basics of it.
