I thought you would want to know about this email virus.

Even the most advanced programs from Norton or McAfee cannot take care of this one. It appears to mostly affect those who were born prior to 1960.

1. Causes you to send the same e-mail twice.
2. Causes you to send a blank e-mail.
3. Causes you to send e-mail to the wrong person.
4. Causes you to send it back to the person who sent it to you.
5. Causes you to forget to attach the attachment.
6. Causes you to hit "SEND" before you've finished.
7. Causes you to hit "DELETE" instead of "SEND."

It is called the "C-Nile Virus." /ccboard/images/graemlins/ooo.gif

I feel like I should "fess-up". There is a good possibility, that I could be 'Patient Zero'. I use to hang out with a few chimps in a previous life and have been suffering with the virus for many years. It is really not to bad and has actually come in pretty handy at times. I have just recently "come out" and have thought about forming a support group. Let me know what you think? /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif
