My New Map Page for Player Technicians
By John A. Tuttle

Hi Everybody, I invite everyone to see my latest creation: a Map Page, which pin-points my location. The question that may arise is: Isn't it dangerous to give out your exact location? My answer: Only if you're under-insured or have something very valuable that is worth stealing.

Today I received a nice message from the folks at ComFind, one of over 400 search indexes. They are geared for businesses. Anyhow, they told me about a new service they are offering which allows "surfers" to locate any business, which is listed in ComFind, and give them a detailed map of the location of same.

Let me make one point very clear. Since my involvement with the Internet some eight months ago, profits have risen by over 35% and I have a waiting list that's approaching two years in length. Anybody who says being on the Net is a waste of time or a frivolous endeavor is completely out of touch with reality. I have saved QRS and myself lots of money by utilizing the E-Mail system and I have applied for a Patent on the word "E-nvoice" which I use to sent bills to my roll customers.

If you aren't already on the fast-track to saving time and money for your potential customers, I would strongly suggest investigating the avenues that are already in place. In roll sales alone (which require no effort), I made over $500 in profit and I only get 20% of the
