Subject: Re: recent poor mpg


I think it really depends on if you are lead-footed with your truck and if it is
an automatic or not.  With the recent fuel prices, I'm perfectly content to
keep the tachometer under 22-hundred.  When I first got my truck off the
lot, it was getting nearly 25 mpg - up hill, down hill, cruise and air - as long
as I keep it under 2,200 rpm.  Mine is a 1997, 7.1L (or is it7.3?) V8
International diesel, five-speed, two-by, F250HD, extra cab, long bed with
an aluminum canopy.

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.

Subject: ADMIN: New list policy


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
Admin, Ford Truck Enthusiasts
