There’s a nasty new little virus going around that attaches to an e-mail as a .zip file. The subjuct is usually “HI” (but not always) and the body of the message may includ something about ‘7-bit ASCII’ (but not always.) If you get one form me don’t open the attachment. If you’re not sure, ask me if I sent it to you before opening it. (I’m not actually sending these at all but I just got one from my work e-mail to my home e-mail and another earlier today going the other way. I’ve checked both systems and I’m clean.) Hopefully this’ll peter out in a day or two.

BTW: I just looked it up the English plural for virus is viruses. Viri is a neuter Latin plural for virus though, even for Latin, a very obsure plural.
