ZBDIR version 1.0 - ***All Rights Reserved*** - Alex Weir June 2004
This yellow pages business directory of Zimbabwe is brought to you by Mr Alex Weir, International Software Developer - firstname.lastname@example.org - based obviously on the existing work by Telone online telephone directory.
It contains 91,000 phone numbers, with 30,500 companies and organisations. It is totally up-to-date as of
June 2004; I plan to update and re-release it at least every year, and maybe every quarter.
It is, and will remain free - email it to friends and colleagues, use it unlimited throughout your organisation, copy and distribute it as much as you wish, for free or charge whatever price you like. Use it on your company LAN network or Intranet - it needs no modification.
I will be accepting orders for inclusion and for adverts in future releases of this product. Pricing tariff not yet fixed, but will be relatively low. Check http://www.cd3wd.com/ZimDir/index.htm , or Email me for info... The system can and will include very small operators as well as very big players....
There are no email addresses or mobile phone numbers here yet - I want to include them.
