Just an FYI to the Ford Truck Enthusiasts users....

We just completed analyzing the web server log files for
December 2000.  We had a amazing 675,000+ visitors for the
month, double what we did in the Summer.  FTE is on track
for our goal of 1 million visitors/month by Spring 2001.
Thanks to everyone for your support over the years.

Since December 2, FTE has received a total of 24 emails from
list subscribers containing the "Sexy Fun" virus (sometimes
known as "Snowhite and the Seven Dwarfs").

In each case, our anti-virus software has caught it.
Additionally, the list server has successfully stripped
virus code 36 times since Dec 2 (you can't get a virus
through our list server because it strips all attachments).

I don't know who started this epidemic but everyone who's
system has sent a virus is at fault.  Anyone with a computer
connected to the Internet should, without exception, run
anti-virus software.

Our new policy is:
Make sure you have anti-virus software on your computer.
Although our list software rejects posts with attachments,
we are notified by it of all attachments.  If we receive
notification that a virus was sent by your system, you will
be removed immediately and banned from resubscribing.

In other words, if your system sends a virus, you can't
resubscribe ---- forever.  Yes, this is harsh, but the issue
is very serious.  What would you do if you received emails
with virus attachments 1-5 times per day?  If you don't have
anti-virus software, do yourself a favor and get it.  Then
run the update utility every week or two.

Later,
Ken Payne

Subject: ADMIN: More... New list policy


This email is in response to a question/concern posted on a couple
of the mailing lists....

First, if anyone doesn't believe the virus isn't a serious problem, I just
received two more email's from list members while writing this that had
the previously mentioned virus attached.

Second, it takes far too much time to keep a score board of who's been
warned and who hasn't.  I'm not going to be an absolute tyrant, if the
virus is too new for anti-virus software I certainly won't fault the user.

If however, the virus is currently covered by anti-virus software they'll
be unsubscribed.  I understand that not everyone is computer savvy, but
anti-virus software is a basic necessity.  Since viruses make prime-time
news, how can anyone not be aware that they exist?  No one gets AIDS on
purpose, but anyone having sex out of wed-lock without a condom has no
one to blame but themselves if they get infected.  Likewise, take
precaution with your system and it will not get infected.  There's one
way users can prevent infection of their system even by new viruses that
haven't yet been added to their anti-virus software:

Don't open executable attachments (including self-extracting ZIPs),
don't open screen saver attachments and don't use Microsoft e-mail
software or if you do use it, turn off macros.

Also, my family and FTE's employees are entirely dependent on the
operation of FTE's 5 computer systems in order to make a living.  The
list users are not dependant on the operation of our systems in order
to earn a paycheck.  We, however, are.  There's more here at stake
than someone not being able to read list mail.  Let me put it this
way.... if you ran a business and someone wrote you a check that
bounced, would you take a check from them again?

It's too darn cold to be out in the garage right now.  Much better to
be next to the heater on the computer.

Hey guys,

I posted a couple adds during the last month and never got replies from
them. So I'm gonna try again,( my mail server has been known to be
screwy at times ) . I am looking for a 9 inch posi. I am puuting it into
a 72 F-100. It's been so long since I have had the axles out, when I
think of the spline count, 28 comes to mind. Now, I know they they come
in either 31 and/or 28. Do trucks have the 28 spline? Thanks for your
time guys!!
