Be on the lookout for this new virus threat. I got this e-mail Saturday, and it does say it's been checked out through both Norton's and Snopes, so one has to presume it may be legitimate. Better safe than sorry, you know.
I checked with Norton Anti-Virus, and they are gearing up for this virus!
I checked snopes.com, this morning ( 4-10-08) and it is for real!!
Get this E-mail message sent around to your contacts ASAP.
PLEASE FORWARD THIS WARNING AMONG FRIENDS, FAMILY AND CONTACTS!
You should be alert during the next few days. Do not open any message with an attachment entitled 'POSTCARD,' regardless of who sent it to you. It is a virus which opens A POSTCARD IMAGE, which 'burns' the whole hard disc C of your computer. This virus will be received from someone who has your e-mail address in his/her contact list. This is the reason why you need to send this e-mail to all your contacts. It is better to receive this message 25 times than to receive the virus and open it.
If you receive a mail called "POSTCARD," even though sent to you by a friend, do not open it! This includes all cards, too. Shut down your computer immediately.
This is the worst virus announced by CNN. It has been classified by Microsoft as the most destructive virus ever. This virus was discovered by McAfee yesterday, and there is no repair yet for this kind of virus. This virus simply destroys the Zero
Sector of the Hard Disc, where the vital information is kept.
The weather was positively schizophrenic around here this weekend. It went from hot and dry to wet and muggy to wet and chilly. Ahhhhh, such is Springtime.
These Words Gone Wild hauled in by TWISTED LINGUISTICS appear to be a bit schizophrenic, too.
discuraged - A poor stray mutt that has been disabused of the notion that he is, in fact, a mongrel and, voila, turned into a purebred. It made him mad and, yep, dat cur raged.
a week soul - One who is good during the week and raises hell on the weekend?
memeber - One who excels at playing with memes.
it dose not - It refuses to take its medicine.
proabably - Proactively able.
These belong to you guys. Tell us what they mean.
What Your Feet Say About You:
You are pretty average in your expressiveness. You can express yourself well, but you don't always want to.
You are a somewhat passionate person. A few things get you very fired up, but you're usually pretty laid back.
You are an assertive person at times. You'll pull out all the stops to get what you want, if it's worth it.
You take a while to fall in love, but once you do, you stay pretty attached to your partner.
You are not afraid of anything. You are brave and courageous, even when most people would be terrified.
You are intellectual and philosophical. You are more concerned with thoughts than action.
You are very spoiled. You don't work unless you have to, and you love to be waited on.
You are easily influenced by other people. You're quite impressionable, so you should only be around people who are a good influence.
Have a great Monday!
