CalcWire: Newsletter, Banner Exchange
Posted by Nick on 28 May 2000, 22:34 GMT

Casey Woo (aka AlphaPlatinum) has finally finished his overhaul of CalcWire. This site has established two interesting services: a collaborative newsletter from numerous different sources in the TI community, and a banner exchange, currently participated in by such sites as ACZ and Macross Software. If you're interested in joining their efforts, you should drop in and contact one of their staff. They're also hiring at the moment, so if you're interested, you can contact AlphaPlatinum ASAP.

If you are doing a banner exchange, make the banners "WebWasher" proof.

Your disclaimer should change one of its sentences to:

"Do not fold, spindle or mutilate."

That's how it's stated on old computer punch cards.

I heard spindle means to roll up in this case.

Yeah, but WebWasher's cool. It's the only ad filtering program that I've ever seen that works...

Ad banners are just annoying crap.

Link banners though, are different. Link banners always have some relevance to the page and have real content on the other end.

Filter the Ad Banners, but keep the Link banners WebWasherProof.

Just change the dimensions of the banners by (+/-)1 pixel horizontally or vertically.

And what would that accomplish?

The link banners wouldn't be filtered like the ads.

But they are not banners. They are little buttons.
