Finishing the jigsaw

Putting a chess magazine together is a lot like doing a jigsaw puzzle. Probably the biggest difficulty (apart from having enough copy for each issue), is to lay it out in such a way that every page is filled, without unsightly white spaces (the "white space" problem). While experience has taught me some tricks, I dream of an automated layout feature becoming available for Open Office.
For readers of the Australian Correspondence Chess Quarterly, you will be pleased to know that I've finished the February issue (albeit 2 weeks late) and it should be in the post later this week.

Does this quarterly magazine have advertisements in it, and if so how much do the adverts cost?
