Send Article to a Friend

ISKM III Providers Wanted -- I'm working on the third edition of Internet Starter Kit for Macintosh, and this time we're going to include custom configurations for a number of providers. If you run an Internet provider anywhere in the world and provide SLIP or PPP accounts at a reasonable rate, and you can offer some sort of special connection offer to readers of the Starter Kit who sign up with you, send email to my editor, Brad Miser <bradm@hayden.com>, for more details. There isn't much time to spare, so act soon. [ACE]
