Thanks for telling me but I don't know how to forward it to other people. Oh well, I'll just tell them not to open the email that says a card for you.

Pff, my computer's had hundreds of viruses, one more won't matter.
And besides, that thing's clearly a joke, because McAfee can't find shit.

I was a huge supporter of Mcafee, because of it's excellent detection rates and customer support. However, there programs are unstable and recquire you to make your computer less secure (Active X required) to be able to operate properly. I have now discovered that even though Norton is a massive resource hog, it is in a league of it's own, with it's stability, detection and easiness of use. Use Norton or Trend Micro.

i have a sonicwall inside my linksys, but i like to think that it's more "intelligent computing practices" such as patching and not running untrusted binaries as a root-level user (admin privs, for you windows folks).
