Get connected with Six Degrees - http://www.sixdegrees.com/
Unlike any other community on the Web, sixdegrees is your home for building real-life relationships with the people you're interested in, starting with the people you know. Based on the theory of six degrees of separation, you form your personal community by adding the people you know to your list of sixdegrees contacts. Each person you list then adds the people they know, building connected communities. You can then use special sixdegrees tools to stay involved with existing friends and contacts and build new relationships with members you'd like to get to know.
Using the "my bulletin board" tool you can post messages to your friends, your friends' friends and your friends' friends' friends; chat live with members from around the world; build and participate in special-interest groups; interview fascinating celebrities; reunite with long-lost friends; send instant degreemail to any sixdegrees member; find out who's logged on and learn more about them through their person zoom screen; and, best of all, make new friends, network, connect and have a great time while you're doing it.

Ultima Networks - Network Status and Updates
Our Main Offices Have Moved
We have moved our main offices to 905 Padre Drive in Salinas. We are directly behind the Quadrangle Office Complex, one block off of Main Street. All of our phone numbers and other contact information remain the same.
News Server Problems
In the past couple of weeks we have had a problem with our USENet news service. We were running out of available ports for news connections. We are implementing a new setup that will require authentication for each user but will solve a problem which allowed outside use of our available news server ports.
We now have dial up numbers in over 500 locations. If you are planning on being out of the area and would like to use service while traveling please call our office to make sure that your account is setup to access numbers outside of Salinas.
Salinas Users Remote Dial Up Access
Currently Salinas users need to call our office to get setup for dialing in from our remote locations. Within one month we expect to have a solution in place that allows all of our users to dial into any number where we have service, without any special activations. Please stay tuned for an announcement regarding that.
15 June 1999: E-Mail Hoax
But the US Postal Service web site at http://www.usps.gov/ is real, and contains a lot of great information. If you are ever looking for the zip code anywhere, just type in an address and it will find it for you.
