Guerilla Tips: 'Beat The System' (FlyerTalk)

Tue Dec 26, 2000 1:19 am

Source: a user called "Rudi" at FlyTalk. http://www.webflyer.com/forum/Forum94/HTML/003299.html

I'm trying to get some cross-propagation of infomation going here.

Post comments, go to the threads and copy-paste-quote them here for review by others. Remember that pagarization is bad... m'kay? And I'm interesting to see what you all think of tip(s)#10. 

Okay... I'll see you all in a few days.
