There are 2 rules of Pfrancdom that guide Pfrancs: See Pfrancs rules.Our Pfrancs are ordinary people --- almost like "Frank" of Nortel. Nortel first introduced Frank in a TV ad October 2000. They wanted to tell everyone about Frank like e-business. Here is a photo of "Frank" from the ad: It's a great ad, you can go to: Nortel networks web page and see it on-line! I thought it was funny because we've been putting "a Pfranc face" on our web site since 1996! "e-business to be more - human", wow, that's it! That's what Pfranc.com is about! People! Not computers.

Then in 1998 we decided to not add/replace any more Pfrancs and to have only one per country. Long story. Maybe I'll tell it someday. Being Pfranc has become a life long thing it turns out.
