Vendor Update Program:

Most vendors have standard procedures for acquiring new files. They get
them from other vendors, BBSs, etc. Most authors cannot afford to mail
disks to hundreds (perhaps thousands) of vendors. However, some vendors
prefer to obtain programs directly from the authors. If you would like to
obtain programs directly from us, automatically, then please help us to
cover the cost.

If you are NOT on our current mailing list, but you would still like to
receive automatic updates directly from us, then please take advantage of
our Vendor Update Program. Under this program you can receive updates for
an entire year for only $10 for all programs (this helps to offset our

To receive updates, simply send us a letter with your name, company name,
mailing address, the name of the person we should contact (such as your
disk librarian), and a check or money order for $10. (Countries outside of
North America please add an additional $10). Payment in U.S. funds drawn on
a U.S. bank only please.

The Vendor Update Program covers all programs in release. For a complete
list see the file UNICORN.COM.

All vendors participating in our Vendor Update Program will automatically
receive any NEW programs which we may release while their Vendor Update
Program is in effect.

The Vendor Update Program is only intended to help us cover our expenses in
those cases where a vendor desires to obtain the program directly from us.
If you have other standard ways to obtain programs, then you may prefer not
to use our Vendor Update Program.
