But it may not have been Carol who did it.  The problem with viruses these
days is that they fake the to/from lines and look very legitimate.  Any of
you subscribed to LCCN got 3 virus messages "from me" this weekend.  None
were from me (I've checked and re-checked my machine) but since I'm the
only email address authorized to send to LCCN, a virus happened upon the
correct combination of addresses to/from to get messages across
LCCN.  I've since disabled that list until I need to send out an
issue.  As I noted on the SACO list, if the subject is short, the text is
short without a decent explanation in the text, and there's not much of a
signature block, delete it and be safe.
