    VIRUS WARNING

    Hot on the heels of the Anna Kournikova virus comes another virus warning.

    There is a new virus going around, called "work". If you receive any sort of "work" at all, whether via email, internet or simply handed to you by a colleague...DO NOT OPEN IT. "Work" has been circulating around our building for months and those who have been tempted to open "work" or even look at "work" have found that their social life is deleted and their brain ceases to function properly. If
    you do encounter "work" via email or are faced with any "work" at all, then to purge the virus, send an email to your boss with the words:

    "Sorry...I'm off to the pub". The "work" should automatically be deleted from your brain.

    If you receive "work" in paper-document form, simply lift the document and drag the "work" to your garbage can. Put on your coat and skip to the nearest bar with two friends and order three pints of beer. After repeating this action 14 times, you will find that "work" will no longer be of any relevance to you.

    Copy and send this message to everyone in your address book. If you do not have anyone in your address book, then I'm afraid the "work" virus has already corrupted your life.

    You have been warned 8-}

    Okay, as promised, here it is......

    "Top of the mornin' to you. You have just received the IRISH VIRUS. BEing Irish, we don't have too much programming experience, so this virus works on the honour system. Please manually delete all files on your hard drive and forward this virus to everyone on your mailing list. Thank you for your co-operation.

    Paddy."

    I just deleted half the files on my drive, I am getting some funny error messages so I think the paddy virus is still in my machine. I'll delete some more and see what happens.

    SWNZ, you really think I'd fall for that? I've been around for bigger pranks that caught a hell of a lot more people. My favourite would have be when I logged in on April 1 1999, (or 1998), and TF.N's main page was http://TheBorg.net . I recall Chyren's admin coup of last year, the slacker rebellion, etc.;) It'll take a lot to fool me, sheep boy.[face_devil]:p

    I just put the words up, how you interpret them is up to you. Of course, we all tend to think alike.

    Now, now. Lets not lose our heads. Actually I wouldn't want that to happen at all, just creates a bloody mess that. Plus we don't have a basket to catch them.
