On the subject of viruses, there has been an outbreak of the "GibeB"
worm in recent weeks.  This purports to be a patch from Microsoft, and
is slightly more clever that the usual worms in that the file name is
of the same format (Q<number>.exe) as a real Microsoft patch.

If you receive one of these, delete it.  Microsoft do not email patches
(just getting them to fix their bugs is hard enough.  ;-)

I also had two other viruses in my email this morning (they claim to be
a returned email error message) - I didn't bother to identify them.

                           I came, I saw, I ticked.
