Please scan for viruses on your computer.

In the last day I have received nearly 500 emails from people who have the new SoBig email virus. One of the hazards of publicly posting my email address, I suppose. But please, do everyone you know a favor and scan your computer for viruses. Here is a removal tool from Symantec (makers of Norton Antivirus) ... here are some links to websites with fully enabled (but trial-only) downloads: Panda Software Antivirus ... Norton Antivirus ... McAfee's Free Virus Scan ... AntiVir - which is completely free! Take a few minutes out, thanks. In the course of typing this, 17 new emails with the SoBig worm have showed up in my inbox. Wee!
