virus alert
Sorry my if my well mail has been down. they are bouncing emails with attachments over 150k, on account of the new worm that poses as a patch:
This worm poses as a Mircosoft security patch, and looks quite authentic.
If you use a PC and get an email from Microsoft instructing you to install
the "September, 2003, Cumulative Patch" update, DON'T OPEN THE ATTACHMENT.

This is the latest worm to target Microsoft operating systems. It poses as
a security update sent from a forged email address and looks very, very
similar to legitimate security updates.

You can see a screenshot of the email message here.


This commercial site has good information about the worm, Swen.A@mm
