Screen shot of the BBS ad for the Contrails BBS, which no longer exists
BBS Ads was a simple series of programs that advertised bulletin board systems (BBSes) via a Win16 program. Customization for different BBSes was achieved by modifying stringtable and bitmap resources in a Windows resource editor; no recompilation from the source code was necessary. The stringtables stored the name of the BBS as well as the sysop names, cosysop names, and telephone numbers. Optionally, a wave sound file can be included in the same directory as the ad's EXE file and will automatically play on the program's startup, if present.

Please do not call any of the phone numbers listed in the ads as they no longer serve BBSes.
