Once upon a time, I used to accept advertising on this site. It made a little money, but overall, it was a pain in the neck relative to the small profit it produced. I *might* consider it again at some point in the future, but don’t hold your breath. If you are dying to place your ad at this site, contact mike (at) montara ventures (dot) com and I’ll at least read your request before saying no.
