I have a 92 Ranger STX 4X4, 4.0 , 5Spd with 3.23 gears and I pull a 22 ft
Dutchcraft camper. I drag alot on big hills ( mountains) but overall it does
good. Oh yeah I also have 101K miles on my truck.

Subject: FTE Small - ADMIN: T-shirt contest, cheating

The voting for the t-shirt on the web site is being removed due to
several people cheating.

Nearly 10 people have cheated and voted multiple times. One person
even voted 9 times. The voting results are going in the trash
since it seems that some of the list members can't be honest about
this.

I knew there was a potential for cheating because I use IPs instead
of cookies to track who voted. All most users have to do is hang
up, dial in and they have another IP. However, its quite obvious
whats going on when we have several users on the list with an uncommon
host address and their host address shows up many times in the IP log.

Once I have a solution to prevent dishonesty, I'll let everyone know.

Ken,
Admin

Okay guys/gals, any ideas? Has this happened to anybody else? Any
insights would be much appreciated.

Reminds me of something that I did out of ignorance once. I never used 4X4 Low
before so one day decided to do so. I had trouble getting it into LOW, but
finally got it there. But when it was time to take it out I couldn't.
I drove 9 miles to the dealer to tell the service manager that there was
something wrong with my Ranger, because it was stuck in 4X4 Low. (It's a good
thing the transfer case didn't exlode!)
He showed me how to get into and out of 4X4 Low:

1. Stop vehicle and depress brake.
2. Put the transmission in Neutral.
3. Rotate the switch into or out of 4X4 Low.

Hope this helps.
