P.S. -- Don't forget. VIRUS ALERT ! ! ! Received communique. FORWARD ! ... This was sent to
us via Alaska Airlines. "Spoke with the supervisor who sent it and it appears to be true. There are
2 URL's you may want to check out. Anyway it is something to flag if it comes in.
This is not a Joke.
A new virus has just been discovered that has been classified by Microsoft (
and by -- McAfee ( as the most destructive ever." The
virus discovered by McAfee came with a warning:
no vaccine has yet been developed. This virus
simply destroys Sector Zero from the hard disk -- where vital information for its functioning are
stored. This virus acts in the following manner: It sends itself automatically to all contacts on your
list with the title
"A Virtual Card for You."

As soon as the supposed virtual card is opened, the computer freezes so that the user has to
reboot. When the ctrl+alt+del keys or the reset button are pressed, the virus destroys Sector Zero,
thus permanently destroying the hard disk. In just a few hours this virus caused panic in New York.
According to News broadcasts by CNN ( This alert was received by an employee of
Microsoft itself. So don't open any mails with subject "A Virtual Card for You." As soon as you get
the mail, delete it. Pass this on to all your friends. And send it to everyone in your address book.
We would all rather receive this message -- instead of not being able get any messages at all.

Also ... Intel announced that another very destructive virus was
discovered. If you receive an email called "An Internet Flower For
do not open it. Delete it right away ! This virus removes all
dynamic link libraries (.dll files) from your computer. Your
computer will not be able to boot up.
TO EVERYONE ON YOUR CONTACT LIST ! (very special "thank
yous" to those that hook us up and are In The Loop - you all know
who you are ... we appreciated it ! Brian, Chris, and Jean: input

A Big Hello To Our Friends in L.A. ! As the "rolling blackout" thing continues to keep people in the
dark a pianoman (in intimate settings) puts some brightness back into the City of Angels. The Word
is, from the fly on the wall: Jeff Goldblum returned to L.A. back from shooting "IGBY Goes To Town"
(a movie in New York) and Jeff got on the Stage for the re opening of MacMondays at a Hot spot:
Las Palmas as he gets down with that piano and The Mildred Snitzer Ochestra. New tunes, new
clothes, new attitude, and ... new haircuts ! If you roll on over to The Latin Lounge the blackouts
could continue (but do make sure someone else is driving). (You could find it hard to see if all the
lights were out ... remember ? Well -- at least hard to see in this World. Never mind.)
