These are the
things that you cannot do
your PCINW account. These rules are for everyone's protection -- ours,
yours, and in some cases, other users on the Internet. The following
things are not up for discussion. If you ignore our warning(s) or
continue to do what we ask you not to, your account will be immediately
terminated and you will not receive a refund. If you cannot comply with
any or all of these rules, please send email to firstname.lastname@example.org
and tell us. Your account will be closed and you will get a refund for
the unused portion of your time.
Here are the things you MAY NOT DO
with a PCINW account:
Your Dial-up Account
your account to use more than one modem at a time. For example, you may
not give your password to a friend so they can use your account at the
same time as you. Another example is using two lines at once --
downloading files on one line while reading news on another.
your account in use by more than one person at a time. This means you
cannot be connected to your account while someone else uses it via a
modem *or* a telnet connection. We budget for people using a certain
amount of CPU, disk, modem time, etc. Obviously there's a wide variety
in the way people use these things. But we're budgeting for one person
at a time and we think it's fair to ask people to respect that.

functions or "utilities" that
are designed to keep your system logged on.
Email and Webmail
- Our email access is provided
using the internet standards of POP3 and SMTP. The email is viewed
by downloading the email to your computer by way of a "POP3 email client"
such as Outlook Express, MS Outlook, Thunderbird, or Mail for mac.
We provide a webmail interface to give our customers a convenient method of
checking email while they are away from their computers. This "Webmail Client"
is not designed for every day use. All mail messages should be downloaded to the
client computer and subsequently removed from the mail server. The archiving
of mail on the mail server is expressly prohibited, as it will be routinely
removed when space is required for new mail.

services, or other for profit ventures will be allowed. For more

Internet. For example, do not send or cause to be sent any email to a
user that the user finds disturbing/offensive,etc. If they explicitly
ask you to stop, you must. Things like death threats, etc. via email or
talk/write are just as serious as death threats via the telephone or
regular mail, and may be prosecuted likewise.
