For a ready made corpus of advertising copy of mostly US origin see the
archives of USENet's comp.newprod news group. I say "the archives"
rather blandly here, but actually I don't know anything about accessing
them, or whether they exist. Certainly new material is being sent out
on a weekly basis, so the archives aren't strictly necessary! Note that
all the copy deals with computer products.

Terrence H. Bell was Secretary of Education in Reagan's first
administration. Charles Ess' citation is the sort of thing he might
have said, but it is not likely to be the sort of thing he would have
coined.

Subject: Postscript vs HP laserjet

Several solutions are undoubtedly possible. The simplest might be to
acquire a Postscript printer which also has HP Laserjet emulation as do
the QMS Postscript printers.

If you're using a Hayes-compatible modem, comma pause time is something
that can be set with a modem command. It should be stored in the S
register 8. If you give your modem the command
AT S8?
it should respond with whatever your default number of seconds is (mine
is two, not one). If you want to set the comma pause to, say, one
second, you would enter the command
AT S8=1
either directly or by putting the string in the modem-setup commands.

Subject: Dialing Pause

If you purchase a simple phone line splitter you can connect your phone
and your modem to the same line. When you dial from the phone and
successfully reach your host computer, your modem should be able to
return the tone as you listen. Then you must hang up (carefully) the
real phone. This should work for all software and modems. The method
is called: "Giving the finger to your modem."
