[IP] Re: email virus

When it comes to email virus' they generally only mess up Windows based
computers - us Mac users are safe.

Most of these nasty little things are based on the fact that programmers
know exactly where to look on a Windows computer (C:\yadda\yadda\yadda) to
do the most damage with, usually, Visual Basic or something similar. Visual
Basic doesn't run on a Macintosh like it does on Windows - making the Mac

Being on a Macintosh does not mean that you don't be have to be careful,
there are Mac-based virus' but they are few and far between. Most of them
come as infected Word or Excel documents that can cause some problems, but
are usually caught quickly by the program or by virus checkers.


Madness takes its toll.  Please have exact change.
