(back) Subject: Sorry From: "Paul Arndt" <parndt@worldnet.att.net> Date: Fri, 7 Dec 2001 22:50:52 -0800   List Members,   Sorry for the off topic message but felt an explanation was in order.   As most of you surmised, my home computer was the unwilling participant in the W32BadTrans.B virus. This virus spawned by just viewing the infected email... it automatically executed the virus code which is a new trick. Also, it replied to messages in my inbox and sent the virus to those = people automatically of which this list was one as well as family members and friends. Unfortunately, my Norton AV signatures were a couple of weeks out of date. I did not realize that I even had a virus until I received = messages from people last Sunday regarding that fact. It has taken me most of the week to get things working again. The moral... keep your virus definitions up to date.   I am sorry for the inconvenience it may have caused any member of the = list. This is the first time my home computer has ever gotten a virus.   Paul Arndt

And not giving in to curiosity when an unsolicited email attachment comes in, from either friend or stranger.   Mac Hayes

This virus spawned by just viewing the infected >email...   I suspect you are using OUTLOOK EXPRESS which is notorious for spreading virus's. The only time I have ever had a virus infection was while I was using the OUTLOOK email program. Contrary to what most believe it is not necessary to open an attachment to get infected and my virus program did not detect it,,,,it was only after someone informed me that I had sent = them virus infected email that I ran a scan and found it. I now use EUDORA = which is available free for the asking and does everything that OUTLOOK does as far as managing email without the threat of getting infected. All those = MAC users are grinning in the background because the virus inventers find it too much trouble to get at the MACs.   jch

It really doesn't = do much damage other that aggravation, I think. I was able to clear it in = about five minutes. Just remember to disable System Restore first. It can hide = in there. Berley      
(back) Subject: A Reminder - All Read [WAS: Sorry] From: "David Scribner" <david@blackiris.com> Date: Sat, 8 Dec 2001 08:37:04 -0600   Folks   Just a reminder this is completely off-topic for this list. I know that Paul wanted to apologize to everyone that may have received the virus from his machine but there is no need for discussion about viruses and/or computer operating systems, etc.   When each of you joined you agreed to follow the Guidelines and I expect that everyone will follow those. THis list was set up to be a rather specialized list and we want to keep the discussion to the topic of the list.   Thanks   David   ****************************************** David Scribner OWNER - DIYAPASON-L

(back) Subject: Re: Ivory Removal From: "james turner" <JTTUNER@webtv.net> Date: Sat, 8 Dec 2001 11:41:20 -0500 (EST)   Piano technicians use an iron to remove old ivories. Work every time. Set the iron about half way up and lay it on top of the ivory for about 45 seconds. The old ivory will peal right off with a thin blade knife.   Jim Turner

That's getting harder and =   harder to do in the corporate world, though.   TommyLee
