Cleveland, OH, February 17, 1999 — MYMAC2U.COM & WilliamLH, today
unveiled the newly automated and redesigned The Mac Trading Post
(http://www.mymac2u.com/themactradingpost/), the First Macintosh
specific, classified ad web site on the Internet.
After nearly a year of being in limbo due to the amount of time it
took to update The Mac Trading Post by hand (3,500+ ads a month!).
The Mac Trading Post is now open and ready to take Mac users
Macintosh specific classified ads. The Mac Trading Post is still
100% FREE to all users, and was built with help from Rock Solid
The Mac Trading Post started back in 1990 out of WilliamLH’s need to
sell some old software and hardware he had laying around, after
looking at over 200 search engines and finding there were no web
sites* to sell his Mac stuff, WilliamLH invented and implemented The
Mac Trading Post, for 8 years he updated the ads by hand, which took
3 – 15 hours a week!
*There were several news groups at the time that sold used Macintosh
equipment, but NO web sites.
The Mac Trading Post accepts ALL Macintosh specific ads and has
several categories to choose from: Mac Systems & Clones (Including
iMacs), PowerBooks & Add Ons, PDA’s & Cameras, Monitors, Printers,
Removable Media, Software (Legal Only!), Mac Jobs: Hiring & Seeking &
Wanted ads. The Mac Trading Post also offers the ability to search
(http://www.mymac2u.com/themactradingpost/search.html) the ads and
has a Macintosh links page
Webmasters can swap links with The Mac Trading Post.
