Newsletter: November 2000

Hi Everyone,

Opening Night of the FestivalThe Waipa Networks Rose & Cultural Festival was a huge success. The weather wasn't always the best, but strong support from the community resulted in good turnouts for most events.

We had a great time getting out and about each day, meeting people and taking photos. You can see our coverage of the festival here.

Next month we plan on having a new feature available - "Virtual Cards". You'll be able to send greeting cards from Te Awamutu to any e-mail address in the World. You'll make each card yourself, choosing a photo from our selection and adding your own message.
We'll begin by having a range of Christmas cards. If you have any ideas for photos which portray a local Christmas, let us know. We're currently negotiating with Santa and we hope he'll agree to pose for us.

Tips & Tricks on the Net: Spam

No Spam

The fight against spam (unsolicited e-mail) is a difficult one, especially when so many spammers use dirty tactics. You may notice that some spams have a message saying you can remove yourself from the mailing list by replying to the e-mail or clicking a hyperlink. It's not a good idea to do so! This is a common trick to make sure that your e-mail address is valid - you may find that your spam gets worse once the spammers know that someone is reading it.

See you next month.

Dave and Richard.
