My home computer was infected with the w32.Magistr.24876@mm virus some time last night. McAfee Virus Scan didn't catch it. And so far I have been unable to remove it. I am working with the tech support folks.
If you have ever cooresponded with me via e-mail - your name may be in my address book and you may recieve an email from me. Catron@mindspring.com The virus sends misc documents etc along with a copy of itself to people in outlook address books.
Do not open any e-mail from me until I let you know I've got this cleaned up.
Sorry for any problems that may have already occurred.

I wondered what that message was about!
I just get a laugh out of the Intel/Windoze/PeeCee virus crap as I read my e-Mail on a UNIX mail host using PINE via TELNET from a MACINTOSH. All that Visual Basic Scripting/Windows crap just can't cause anything to happen.
But I did notice that visits to the website were down about 80% today....I wonder if there is any correlation?
