On behalf of Fimwak family we would like to thank JEFERSON ULEP (JEFF) who made the fimwak website.(KABAYAN MABUHAY KA!) Fimwak website as a means of communication is readily, cheaply, and effectively available to all.
Communication is a neccessity among human beings and more so in our modern civilization now. And, one means of communication that lends itself a useful tool for people in a free society to express their thoughts and ideas and to obtain what they need or want, is computer.
The complexities in modern living demand that if you want to forge ahead, you must know how to go about to get, in the decent and lawfulway, what you need or want. For there are many things that we should and could gain or attain, if we only know how to use computer. But too often, opportunities become lost to us because we do not know how to catch them.
We all know that the best things in life is information and that computer could obtain global information, if we are aware of and if we are knowledgeable to connect to people.
But thru the kindness and generous service rendered by JEFF he taught us the basic and necessary function of computer. His teaching is one feasible and effective way of obtaining latest and most progressive information we need.
We sincerely appreciate all the kindness, patience and efforts he showed. KAMSAHAMNIDA!!! Good luck and we wish you all the best.
