You might be a winner, Adam.

Watched a brief CNN report about this first thing this a.m. Not one
whisper about Micro$oft or its products. Five minutes ago CNN aired an
expanded story complete with cropped screenshots (client not
visible.) Still NOT ONE WORD about Micro$oft products. However, in
one up-close screenshot showing a user deleting a registry entry, the
/Windows path was readable.

Correspondent from CNN Interactive advised email users to "update with
their anti-software viruses." heh

Also, CNN is featuring the Metallica v. Napster story in close
proximity to the ILOVEYOU story.

Always one click away from evil,
