AMD

AMD Embedded Treasure Hunt
(199509..12)
First paying advertiser.
They stopped advertising when the 486 began loosing from Intel's generation of Pentiums.
Now they are on top again of course in the low price range market.

BooksNow

Booksnow seems to have gone. Well, it didn't work for me... I got a check for about $3 after about a year of such. Amazon worked better at about $200 per year in some years ago, but not it's sometimes only a couple of dollars per quarter. Not great of course, but I have to link the ISBN numbers to something. I doubt that Barnes and Nobles would do much better. When I emailed them (even before the Booksnow period) they wanted exclusivity and I don't like that unless income guarantees are given...

199607?..
Because people kept asking me to help them find obsolete chips, I emailed with a lot of chip brokers that I came across and found a good broker to help me. Since then I added some of my own ad's to the Chipdir because the modest commission I was getting on the deals was gradually turning into a serious income source to maintain the Chipdir on. My aim however is to be a WWW publisher so my own ad's are just an alternative way of making money via ad's (and to help people find their chips). I'm open to all kinds if advertising models as long as it doesn't cost me much time, makes enough money and enables me to keep providing the information I'd like to see as a visitor.

DCP

DCP makes audio compressor chips!
(199705..199804?)
