    Attn: Virus Alert

    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 only those users who's profile shows they were born prior to 1960.

    Symptoms:

    Causes you to send the same e-mail twice. Done that!
    Causes you to send a blank e-mail! That too!
    Causes you to send e-mail to the wrong person. Yep!
    Causes you to send it back to the person who sent it to you. Aha!
    Causes you to forget to attach the attachment. Well darn!
    Causes you to hit "SEND" before you've finished. Oh, no not again!
    Causes you to hit "DELETE" instead of "SEND." And I just hate that!
    Causes you to hit "SEND" when you should "DELETE." Oh No!

    IT IS CALLED THE "C-NILE VIRUS."

    Must be the same virus that causes me to spend far too much time looking for my glasses.

    It's the P-nile viruses that I don't care to acquire.

    Tom! Nice to see you here, even if it is on a limited basis.

    Now, as for this Virus, Yeah, I'm showing the symptoms.

    There is another symptom, but it seems to only apply to males: You ogle young gals, in their short skirts and shorts, and they catch you ogling, and you just
    don't care anymore that you just got caught ogling.
