Advertising History

Rainbow Magazine

These links lead to scans of the magazine on

  • November 1990 – page 79. MultiBasic and ShadowBBS, by by Terry Todd. Interestingly, we shared the page with a review of Sprite-BASIC by Joel Hegberg. We met Joel at the CoCoFEST! and would start selling his software. He ran our OSK Midwest Division for the MM/1 software.
  • December 1990 – page 42. “Happy Holidays From”. MiniBanners by Allen Huffman, and MultiBasic and ShadowBBS by Terry Todd. We specifically asked for page 42, though they encouraged us not to. All ads typically were on the right side page so they were noticed. When only did this one. Prices were discounted by $5.
  • January 1991 – page 67. “Happy New Year From”.
  • February 1991 – page 59.
  • March 1991 – page 39. We added used floppy disk drives, and CheckBook+ by Joel Hegberg.

We were supposed to run six issues with our contract, but we did not have the money to continue and switched our focus to vending at the various CoCoFESTs instead.
