I just wanted to apologize for spamming the list (by spamming the
list) with my attempt at humor ... I was just thinking about e-mail
viruses, and I felt nostalgic about a time where e-mail viruses were a
joke that could never happen because, quite simply (with exception of
those people who used emacs) our mail reader was just a mail reader
... a method to display text on a text console.
Some days I miss that.
Other days, I just revel in gmail and get over it.
So yeah, sorry 'bout that. I hope that at least three of you saw the
humor ... 'cause then my ramblings weren't a complete waste of CPU

The one virus that you should be concerned with on the Linux side is a
particularly insideous virus called the "Good Times" virus. This has
been around since the early 90s and can target any e-mail system. It
continues its resurgence despite repeated efforts to put it down.
You can find out more about it and how to protect against it at:
or google Goodtimes
Consider this my public service for the year.
Yours in virus protection,
