Can any Mefites recommend a reliable sign company in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area? I need to have vinyl lettering (or whatever the sign-person recommends) installed on a plate-glass, storefront window. I would love for the sign to be Dallas City Code-compliant.

Do print ads for bars/restaurants have to blur the labels on the beers they carry in pictures? Our bar is putting out an ad in a magazine and the picture we're planning on using has a lot of the beers we carry in it. Do we have to censor the labels of beers we carry at our bar for the print ad for any reason? [more inside]

I'm looking for amusing phrases that could be found on old health tonic/elixir advertisements. They don't have to be real, just funny.
Example: "Most beneficial for the humors!"

I would like to find an internship for next summer at an ad agency in eastern Ontario or somewhere reasonably close by in the US (think NYC, Chicago, etc). Unfortunately, my school doesn't engage in a lot of recruiting partnerships with ad agencies. Is there some type of industry insider directory I could consult for a list of potential ad agencies to call up about information interviews and such? [more inside]

Yesterday I found a mysterious mkv file in my Azureus downloads folder. I opened it and it turned out to be an advert for Intel. I promptly deleted it but it showed up again the next day. Has Intel started putting adverts in bittorrent files?

PPC, CPM, SEO, SEM, Ad Buy, Advertising and Marketing Filter: My Company is now making a big push into email marketing and lead and customer nurturing. We bought “Eloqua” to do this, and I am charged with the implementation. Since I want to "add the most value" I can, I am looking for resources (especially blogs, but books are good too) that are well respected, and that can help me get up to speed with my understanding of industry parlance, technique, best practices, theory, and execution of online advertising and marketing in all its forms (We are going to be making a push into search engine marketing as well). So far I have read "The Long Tail
" and "Digital Body Language
" I am also interested in keeping up with industry news and events, as well as new technologies and implementations.

Recently I've thought of a great idea for a website which I'm planning on developing soon. I believe the site has the potential of something like YouTube or Facebook.
Due to my paranoia and low budget, I've decided to develop the site myself. I believe no one has the capacity or resources to copy the site for at least a fortnight.
Due to the low budget Im having to resort to spreading the word over the net.
Unfortunetly I cannot reveal what the site is about :( I was just wondering if anyone knows of any descent sites or forums that are pretty general, where I could post my idea? so i can reach as many people as possible within a fortnight.
P.S. Please don't say Youtube or Facebook... lol

Dynamic Advertising: How do I put it in an ebook?
I'd like to 1) put advertising that is
a) dynamic (and changeable from a script on my site) and
b) CPM (paid per exposure, rather than per action)
into 2) an ebook, either pdf or exe.
Any suggestions on the best way to do this? Thanks!
