New Computer Virus...

I thought you would want to know about this e-mail virus. Even the most advanced programs from Norton or McAfee cannot take care of this one.

It appears to affect those who were born prior to 1960.

Symptoms:

1. Causes you to send the same e-mail twice. Done that!

2. Causes you to send a blank e-mail! Done that too!

3. Causes you to send e-mail to the wrong person. Yep!

4. Causes you to send it back to the person who sent it to you. Who me?

5 Causes you to forget to attach the attachment. Well dam!

6. Causes you to hit 'SEND' before you've finished. Oh no - not again!

7. Causes you to hit 'DELETE' instead of 'SEND.' and I just hate that!

8. Causes you to hit 'SEND' when you should 'DELETE.'

Oh No!

IT IS CALLED THE 'C-NILE VIRUS.'
Now keep in mind that I don' know about any of this myself but a lot of my friends have it.

9. May exacerbate symptoms of memory disfunction.

This greatly explains many of the help desk calls I get.

That is not a virus. That old age.

Memo to VRWC operatives:

If you receive an apparently blank email from Kae, it is not blank. It has been typed using a top secret invisible font developed in the laboratories of Q Branch. Read it carefully, it contains important information about your role in the next mission and what to do if things go wrong.

If you receive an email that mentions an attachment that you cannot see, you have received a stealth attachment. It will contain maps and security documents. Simply right click the missing attachment and select “save as” from the pop-up menu. Do NOT name either the file or the folder you save it to. Conspiracy theorists at Lavartus Prodeo are constantly looking for ways to penetrate our defences, don’t make their job any easier.

Kae is a Senior Minionette of the VRWC. The C-NILE virus has been installed on her system as part of a comprehensive re-education program.

I'm waiting for Lavartus Prodeo to become invisible then I'll read their blog more than twice a year, and I'll do so without smashing the computer screen.

Senior Minionette? Congrats on the promotion Kae.

Psst, Wiz, I think it was supposed to be Senior-moment Minionette, but I'm not going to tell anyone they've made a mistake... I'm going to fill my boots while I can!
