that's probably because i really don't have a question anymore. i got
slammed by the welchia worm on a freshly installed system while downloading
updates to my av program. i didn't even have an email account set up on the
system. i initially came to this group to see what that was all about. i
received some smug replies about patching my system and after having
installed one of those patches it broke my system. now i'm simply pissed.
not looking for answers. sorry. just pissed and on a bitch-fest. ;)

duh. stupid me again. been posting to newsgroups for years and never
solicited for email. i always thought it was kinda rude to not answer
questions to the group; but i guess that really doesn't matter anymore
because i've decided to be rude for other reasons. i have no tolerance for
incompetence (microsoft) and haughty attitudes (their supporters).
