    DIY Computer Infection

    Somehow the following email made it through my spam filter:

    DEAR RECEIVER,

    You have just received a Taliban virus. Since we are not so technologicaly advanced in Afghanistan, this is a MANUAL virus. Please delete all the files on your hard disk yourself and send this mail to everyone you know.

    Thank you very much for helping us.


    Thanks & Regards

    I thought this was rather amusing. Has anyone else seen this?

    So did you manually delete your files or just take the easy way out and reformat your hard drive?


    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    On a side note, I deleted an itunes install and it effed up my windows explorer. I had to format yesterday but the nice thing was that I was able to back up all of my documents by dragging them to a harddrive shortcut. now i feel all clean and giddy at my computer's lack of **** that my wife put on it.
