Guidelines for Turnkey Vendor Submissions

If you are a turnkey vendor and are reading this chapter to see if you are there yet, well, probably not (or you'd be in the table of contents). However, you could be! Write a section describing your company and its offerings and send it to me and I'll consider adding it.

The document must be either plaintext or written as a latex
section{}. It should process out to strictly less or equal to three pages processed pages total and should not be written as ``advertising copy''. Rather it should focus on your company's technical strengths and what you can offer your customers as added value - technical consulting, programming support, special tools, great prices, whatever. No specific product prices permitted, but it is ok to indicate the general price range your offerings occupy. Contact information (e.g. a Web URI and a phone number) is strongly encouraged (that's where you can show or tell potential customers the detailed prices).

Figures or diagrams must at the moment be embedded postscript (EPS) only. Eventually I'll get set up to manage e.g. GIF inclusions for the web version of the book, but I'm not yet.

I reserve the right to reject or editorially modify any submissions. If I want to modify it, you of course will get a chance to accept my revisions before I actually publish it.

I am not selling space here, but I'm also not above accepting attempted bribes in the form of vendor T shirts for my boys (current ages 5, 10 and 13). I also am always open to donations of hardware - I like to try things before I write about them, and the more complete my hardware collection is the better I can compare and contrast the differences.
