Nimda, and bye for a while!

My fellow glossopoeists!

I'm going off-line for a while--not because I
don't love you, but because I'm wary of a new
pernicious virus called "nimda" (admin backwards).
According to our local paper, today, it can send
a worm into your system merely when you open
the message and not when you open the attachment.
I've got outlook express, and I've just figured out
how to program it so that you can delete messages
without opening them.  If anybody has any information
about this virus, let me know privately.  I'm off list
for a while to clean up my system and I'll see all
of you shortly!  Let me know if Shreyas ever posts
the Relay results.
