Making Your Internet Access Work For You For Only $19.95 You Will Receive The Ronco Vego-Matic!
Well not exactly! For $19.95 per month you can expect access to the world through the Internet. Where else can you invest so little and receive so much?
My wife is an equestrian. We have two horses and live on 5 acres in Mustang Oklahoma. She recently approached me with the idea of getting a ½ ton pickup so we can carry round bales of hay to her horses instead of worrying about feeding them daily.
I bet most of you are thrilled with the prospect of having to buy an automobile. You know endless hours of haggling over price, having your trade in savaged, and the keys taken from you while you wait for dealer to offer you next to nothing. There is another way!
My wife decided on a Ford F-150 extended cab 4x4. I immediately went to Edmunds online to figure out what I should I offer for the truck. http://www.edmunds.com
Here you will find the invoice price to the dealer, the Manufacturers Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), and the True Market Value (TMV) as well as the rebates and "hold backs" offered to the dealers. http://www.edmunds.com/edweb/holdback.html
Incentives, Rebates and Holdbacks
The Information You Need To Know
Even if a dealer were to sell you a car for the invoice price, he would still be making money. The secret is that a certain percentage of the car's price is refunded to the dealer by the manufacturer. Learn what that percentage is and how you can use your knowledge of it to get the best deal possible on a new car. Additionally, we have compiled an updated list of current factory-to-dealer and factory-to-consumer incentives. If you are in the market for a new vehicle, this is crucial information.
The bottom line is the MSRP was $32,525 the TMV was $29,356 the Invoice was $28,626 and I bought the truck for less than the invoice price with 3.9 percent financing. Someone once said that, "Knowledge is power", when buying a vehicle Knowledge saves $ MONEY $. The time, emotion, and money I saved buying the truck were well worth the $19.95 per month!

Warning: Watch For Absence Of Malice
Several years after Stanley Kubrick, movie director, and Arthur C. Clarke, author, combined efforts to bring Clarke’s 1950 short story, The Sentinel, to life 2001: A Space Odyssey burst into theatres across the world on April 3, 1968. Kubrick asked Lloyd’s of London to issue an insurance policy to protect him from losses should aliens be discovered before the movie’s release.
Lloyd’s declined, and the film opened unhindered by alien intruders. Although this movie was released over 30 years ago it continues to be one of the most heralded science fiction films of our past and current century. It’s demographic following ranges in ages from 65 to 19 years olds; most of who consider this movie as much more than entertainment. The movie depicts an encounter between man and HAL 9000, a super computer, with human like artificial intelligence.
The gist of the movie is that HAL 9000 evolves from this super computer to a form of uncontrollable artificial intelligence that is now no longer operating by what has been programmed into its system but starts making its own decisions. Since HAL has no “soul” or “conscience” its (his) morality is based upon calculations rather than reason. Here lies the premise for the lead into this year’s media hype. Both NBC and ABC have featured 2001: A Space Odyssey as a precursor to predict mankind’s uncontrollable quest to destroy civilization as we know it.
Both of these special reports included fact, truth, and a clever media spin on the dangers of the scientific community’s proliferation of artificial intelligence. They had interviews with “selected” experts from that noble profession eluding to the probable danger of creating artificial intelligence that will eventually be able to not only become like mankind but will be able to perform the act of creating itself through cloning.
Through careful manipulation and baiting by the reporters, they lead each of these scientists into using 2001: A Space Odyssey as a prophetic warning of mankind’s eventual extinction by his own creation of these “beings”. There is no malice intended by these journalists, so they are very comfortable in presenting entertainment as investigative reporting.
They may be sincere, but they are sincerely wrong. Those of us who are in that upper demographic range (55 +) have seen our communication devices evolve from a Corona portable typewriter to an IBM Selectric, to the Personal Computer now inter-linked with the World Wide Web. I have heard the media warn us about everything from “computers” replacing workers, resulting in wide spread unemployment, to the ultimate dangers of medications becoming so effective in eradicating disease that the earth would be become over populated by the year 2010.
The fact of the matter is -none of this has happened. In fact, in most cases, just the opposite has occurred. Just remember that when you are watching, reading, or hearing anything whose existence is based on the support of advertising dollars more than likely it's entertainment, not news. And certainly not information you would want to embrace for making life changing decisions.
If you will think back to the times you have been told or feared something “bad” was going to happen to you or those you love, this adage will have great meaning for you. “Worry and fear, based on what could happen, is interest paid in advance on a debt we will most likely never owe.”

A Lesson In American History
How in the world can a young Caucasian female from rural Oklahoma tell anyone the first thing about Black History Month? My approach is to simply offer my own perspective since that’s how most people view the world. I would be foolish to even imply that I realized the full extent slavery had on African Americans, and I would never claim to understand the persecution with which they have had to endure.
I will, however, say that had it not been for our African American counterparts, our lives would be minus many of the wonderful things to which we have become accustomed. As I sat eating ice cream with my beautiful little girl, I had to say thanks to Augustus Jackson the guy who invented it. The last time my husband took us fishing we used automatic fishing reels invented by a man named George Cook, and everyday when I sit down at my computer to work, I have to remember Burridge & Marshman, the people responsible for the invention of the typewriter. Yes, each of these people was of African American decent.
Where would we be without the smooth sounds from a guy named Louis Armstrong, or the comic innovations of Richard Pryor and Bill Cosby? Thanks to people like Harriet Tubman, who fought against slavery, we have people like Oprah Winfrey and Bryant Gumble among other great speakers and educators. Thanks to people like Jackie Robinson breaking the color barrier in professional sports, we are able to enjoy the talents of people such as Sherryl Swoopes, Michael Jordan and Tiger Woods.
Of course, I can't realize the true sacrifice that African Americans have made to accomplish so many wonderful things, but I can say thanks! Thanks for adding beauty, talent, and knowledge to our every day lives, and thanks for helping to shape the world that we live in!

New And Improved, No Really
Well, we're here. We talked and talked and talked, and then finally walked. Literally. FullNet Communications is officially in our new offices and new data center. Last month when I was mentioning the move I had several people asking me what it meant to them. Well, here are four distinct ways that you will benefit from this move:
- We are now officially offering 24x7 customer service. You can call us on any day, at any time, and someone will be there. If you are unable to get a live person (who is on another call), leave a message and someone will call you back, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
- We have a new and improved phone system. We are still learning the ins and outs of this new system, but one of the things it will do for us is allow us to look at when we have the highest call volumes and adjust our customer service staffing to cover that. As we do this, you will find that you will more and more often reach a live person and not have to leave a voicemail message.
- We are in the process of increasing our bandwidth and redundancy. There is still some equipment over at the old offices that we are arranging to bring to our new office, and when we do, we will have fully redundant circuits to the internet. This could result in increased speed for surfing and faster downloads. (This final move will take place sometime during the next two to six weeks. We will notify you of any downtime that might affect you before we move.)
- We have a new and improved Network Operations Center (NOC). We have improved the environment for our equipment and can now offer state-of-the-art colocation. Check out our PDF file at http://www.fullnet.net/FullColoFinal.pdf for more information.
This is just the beginning of our efforts to enhance the services we provide and expand our customer service. I look forward to continuing improvements to your internet experience and appreciate any feedback/ideas that you might have on ways we can improve.
