Glad to see you back!
How long are you going to be in Korea?
I do hope your fOCUS is being well cared for.

Let's see, 11 months left in Korea. That's bad but do believe me when I say that I've endured worse. As to the Focus, I hope it's being well taken care of. If you've seen my post about the accident just prior to me leaving then you wil know that the entire rear section has been undergoing re-construction for some time. It's now ready for pick up so I'm working that issue to get the thing sent cross country. At that point it will be stored in a climate controlled place, driven weekly, detailed every 4 months......maybe a trip out to Tom for some custom tuning. I sort of blew my Vortech wad on getting the new truck but I have no regrets. The insurance company that picked up the tab has been awesome (Progressive) and have taken care of me. I have hook ups at Ford that had said they could have totalled out the car for me because the price for repairs was getting so high but for me this car is a keeper. I'm wiling to do whatever it takes to get this thing back to where it was and then continue progressing. Thanks for the warm welcome BTW

Government blocks are easy to get past.

1. Go to TOOLS
2. Internet options
3. Connections
4. LAN Settings
5. uncheck the box marked "Use proxy server for your LAN"

This should do the trick to let you surf wherever you like.

If not just let me know
