In this month's FullNews you will find some exciting and informative things available to our FullNet customers.

In view of the current stock price free fall in the tech industry, it is important to note that most companies in the tech sector have their set primary goal to achieve market share, not profitability. This has resulted in many Internet service providers (dial-up, DSL, and cable modem) providing services at a cost which can never be profitable. This has led to some good deals in the short term for consumers. But most likely they will have to change providers soon. Reports of the death of "free" dialup Internet providers and startup (low cost) DSL providers are in the news. In our opinion, the $9.95 to $16.95 dial-up Internet providers are soon to follow.
At FullNet, we are making the necessary changes to improve our billing, customer service and network operations. Our goal is to provide high quality, customer focused products and services at a reasonable price, while moving to profitability in 2001. We want you to know we value you as a customer, and we will continue to do the things that make FullNet Communications Oklahoma's premiere Internet service provider.

Christmas, A Holiday To Remember Pearl Harbor, A Day In Decemer We Must Not Forget
If you were born after 1970, this article is written especially for you. If you were born between 1941 and 1970, then hopefully this should only be a refresher on a subject you either discussed in your home or was taught in school. On December 7, 1941 the Japanese started war with the United States by committing a premeditated, unwarranted, dastardly attack on our then peaceful nation.
This is a day that should and must live in infamy. (Dastardly and infamy where the exact words of the President of the United States at that time, Franklin Delano Roosevelt.) Not a day to remember with bitterness or hatefulness, but a significant event in American history that should continue to remind us "that the only thing we learn from history is that we never really learn from history." A primary example of this was the Korean conflict followed by Vietnam.
Both were politically motivated and had very little, if anything to do with protecting our country or culminating in an American victory. If you think that I was against our being in either of those conflicts then you formed your opinion much too quickly. You see I joined the U S Marine Corps in 1959 right after Korea and just before Vietnam. I was a young, stupid kid who thought I was going to be like my uncles who went to fight for the ultimate freedom of this great nation during the war with Japan and Germany.
I didn't know about or understand America's "new age" peacekeeping mentality that had infiltrated the thinking of our elected officials in Congress. They were for the most part sincere, misguided men and women who conveniently relabeled our involvement in those events as being "Peace keeping forces" instead of calling them what they were and still are today "Power keeping forces". Not for the perpetration of our power, but the powers of whatever country we esteem to be the one we decide would, in some twisted way, represent the best interest of the United States.
I support and advocate a well equipped, combat ready military who is on constant alert to insure that we never have another Pearl Harbor. I do not support the loss and injury of our troops as a result of being exposed to terrorist attacks in places where we are trying to engage in diplomatic "Power keeping conflicts." Men and women of our armed forces should only be required to put their lives on the line for the ultimate preservation of themselves and the citizens, and those who wish to be citizens, of the United States of America.
I supported Desert Storm. In fact, I volunteered for the US Marine Corps Reserve Unit in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma that was eventually called to duty, but I was not eligible as a result of military age restrictions. But even then, I became discouraged when I realized we were once again going to repeat Korea and Vietnam with all the same government official (both Democrat and Republican) rhetoric from past conflicts.
As long as there are "self enlightened" citizens and elected officials who use our military to subordinate the conflicting powers of foreign countries in the name of "peace", then we obviously don't have a clue as to the real meaning of the word. It's not about external motivations and influences, such as money, control, politics, or the ignorance of these people that is creating the problem.
It stems from the same source that convinced the whole of Japan and Germany to attempt the annihilation of our country and the entire nation of the Jewish people. It comes from the heart of mankind. A heart that says "I'm going to get whatever I want and deem necessary to perpetuate my beliefs at the expense of anyone and everyone who gets in my way. There is no peace available to these people, so sending "combat troops" to enforce the peace that is necessary for these people to acquire "real peace" is not the answer.
Each year on December 7, I ask that you take a moment out of your day to reestablish the memory of the bombing of Pearl Harbor. If you have the opportunity to rent the movie "Tora, Tora, Tora" then I encourage you to do so. This is not just a movie, it is an accurate, historical depiction of the bombing of Pearl Harbor and the recorded events that lead to the ultimate defeat of the Japanese military.
Share it with those you know who love this country and need to understand what this conflict was really all about and why America won. One of the most powerful, but godless nations in the world, whose only goal was by their own recorded words " To annihilate every human being in America", was defeated primarily as a result of a piece of radio equipment which failed to operate properly.
Here was a country that was the leader of the modern world in the development and manufacturer of electronic devices and yet that one piece of equipment failed them at the most inopportune time. Bad luck, bad karma, operator error, that's what many of the Japanese and others will tell you, but in my heart and the hearts of most of those who were there know that it's not true.
When you are celebrating Christmas in the way that is available to you, I ask that you simply say a word of thanks, to the very power that makes it possible for us to celebrate Christmas in this great country in whatever manner we wish. For you see this is the celebration of the birth of that "power" who came here to live and die for all mankind, the Prince of peace Himself.
No Jesus no peace, know Jesus know peace. May God richly bless you this Holiday season and that you will truly know His peace.

Have Youself A Merry Little Upgrade, And It's F R E E
There are two types of people in the world... 1) people who live for upgrades (aka tech junkies who look at upgrades as life enhancing experiences) and 2) those who look at them as a waste of time.
I have to admit, I would probably have fallen into the "waste of time" category until the day I upgraded my system from Windows 95 to Windows 98, then I was hooked! My computer seemed to run like a dream! OK, I know that upgrading your entire operating system may be out of the question due to cost and so on, however, there are other upgrades that can enhance your internet experience, and they are absolutely free! By upgrading your Internet browser you will have added security while surfing the Internet and you will be able to shorten the time it takes to download pages. You will also be able to view web pages that are unavailable to those using older browsers.
If this isn't enough to make you run to your computer and upgrade, maybe taking a look at these pages will sway you. Oops, I forgot you're already at your computer, so now all you have to do is go to the following web sites for the upgrade of your choice.
Go to this site for a list of some of the features you will get if you upgrade your Internet Explorer browser:
You guessed it this is place you can find a list of the features you get from upgrading your Netscape:
Now if all of this has managed to make you look at upgrading as a "good thing", you can follow the links below to upgrade your browsers:
If you are asked if you would like to "run from current location" or "save to disk" choose the "run from current location" option.
Remember, you don't have to watch out, and you don't have to cry, if you can't make it work, call FullNet Customer Service and we'll tell you why.
From all the "tech helpers" here in the FullNet Customer Service Holiday Headquarters, to all of you, merry surfing and to all a good night!

Spam, Was Bad, Is Bad, And Continues To Be Bad
(Not good bad, but bad bad)
(For those of you who have been around for a long time this article may look like a repeat. And that's because it is. But it's been 1 1/2 years and I think it is worth repeating for our newer clients.)
SPAM IS BAD! I want to take this opportunity to talk a little bit about spam and explain why you should never get involved with it....
Spam is basically any bulk email sent to people that don't request it. Usually it refers to email sent in huge quantities, like 1,000 or more. Often people send commercial email (advertising their services) to 100,000+ at a time. This is NOT GOOD!
Technically spam is not currently illegal in most places. However, most Internet Service Providers have rules against it. In fact, most back-bone providers have rules against it as well. Often these rules carry penalties that include everything from disconnection to fines. The simple reason is because spam can clog and slow down ISPs and cause their system administrators to waste tons of valuable time trying to fix servers that weren't designed to handle that volume of email.
Spam is bad because it's a pain for you to have to read and delete. Spam is bad because it can cause service interruptions at the server or ISP level. Spam is bad because it causes trouble for everyone involved. Spam is bad because it abuses the Internet and goes against the principles that formed it.
Please help us out by taking a stand against spam. Both Fullnet and Animus will cut off your account if we find out you are sending out spam. Beyond that, I would recommend you do not respond to or buy from any spam that is sent to you. And if the email tells you to respond to a certain address or click a certain link to be "removed" from their list, DON'T! Unless it is a list that you remember subscribing to, do not reply to the email. This is often just a way of verifying that your email address is valid. Once you reply, they know you're getting the email and you may start getting more (from other lists). Although this is not always the case, I would recommend you don't reply to one-time commercial messages in any way.
Your help in ridding the Internet of spam is appreciated.
By the way, the Letter from FullNews is NOT considered spam :)
