> Please click on one of the choices below to enter our site:
> [] Saw our web address on our billboard
> [] Found us on a Search Engine
> [] Followed a hotspot from a non-search-engine site
> [] Linked from another page
> [] Saw the Web address on our billboard
> [] Saw it in our magazine ad
> [] Saw it in our direct mail piece

[] Recommended by a friend
[] Saw in newsgroup or mailing list
[] Saw in book or magazine article
[] You're in my bookmarks!

(Well, I suppose for the last one, people aren't going to bookmark the page
