Dear Ford Truck Enthusiasts:

We have a new advertiser on our web site. Our practice with
web site advertisers has been to make a brief announcement for
2 days (this is day 1 of 2). Please show your appreciation to
them for helping to support the web site and the lists by
checking out their site:

Auto Krafters sells new parts for both new and old Ford/Mercury
trucks and cars. They carry parts for late model Explorers,
Expeditions, Rangers, and F-series. Additionally, they sell
parts to help restore 1953-1979 to original condition. They
carry 13 different catalogs of genuine and reproduction parts.

We would like to have them know that you heard about them via
the Ford Truck Enthusiasts group.

Now returning you to our regularly scheduled program...

We've found a new provider/host for the lists and web site. Since
we have a new advertiser and many list members have emailed me to
let me know they're getting a window sticker, the startup cost is
covered. This month is an expensive month for us, especially since
there will be a two week overlap for the web sites so I can set up
everything on the new service.

We did a ton of web searches and found a virtual server provider that
is reasonablity priced with many features. By switching over to a
"virtual server" (vs the "virtual host" we currently use) we gain the

1. We can add more lists and more list members without increasing our
2. Database support. This makes a full blown private party classified
page with adds, deletes and edits easy to support. People visiting
the page will be able to do intelligent ad searches. The Events page
will have the same features.
3. The ability to schedule jobs, such as a monthly email newsletter.
4. Growth. We can add extra web space at the rate of $1/meg/month.
5. Free web space for members will be supported. We have no reseller
or reuse restrictions.
6. Those using the free web space can purchase additional space at
the above $1/meg/month (we're simply going to pass-on our costs).
7. True FTP and telnet logins for web space users!
8. CGI script support for web space users! Add your own scripts such
as counters, guestbooks, etc.
9. Ford truck clubs will get additional free web space (size not yet
determined) over the current 300k.
10.Searchable archives.
11.Tons more!

No outage of list or web page service is anticipated and the transition
will be at the end of the month.
