Also I will send it up to wuarchive.wustl.edu in the /pub/MSDOS_UPLOADS/ directory. To make life easier, I employed a file naming scheme so you will always know what issue is up: For example: gn91-05.zip | \|_ |_ | | |_ GIF | | News | May | 1991 GIF News comes out every other month so look for gn91-07.zip in July. If you want back issues, let me know or send me a Self-Addressed-Stamped-Envelope with a disk (please include some .GIF files or anything else you might think is interesting on that disk). Check those FTP sites for back issues [ex. gn91-03.zip, gn91-01.zip, gn90-11.zip, etc.] They're also up on the Channel 1 BBS in Cambridge, MA (617)354-8873.

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.
