WREX....  Beware mate!

I think your PC may have contracted a virus....  or you may have been hacked.

I got an email from you last night with a nasty virus embedded in it,  it was sent to me, and what looks like everyone else in your address list!

There is a nasty one going round that suggests you have been visiting porn sites and other naughty places, and asking you to pay £100 at a local pay staion.  You find your computer frozen and the only way to get going again is a full switch off, generally by holding the power switch down until the power goes off.
A chap I see at my coffee stop actually paid the money!!!  He said the virus as he now knows it was, was quite frightening.

It got hit myslf but knew how to clear it.     ZXZ

I suspect he might have had a guilty conscience?   :laugh:

Don't think I've been driven away by Fester's rantings or Ian's doomsday book style researches  :P

You don't get rid of me that easy.  $good$

See you all soon

These winter travels, are you going to somewhere like the Amazon Rainforest?   Somewhere where the internet has not yet reached?   Or do you you need to go into hibernation for some reason?

I hope I am correct in posting this here.
I have just had some good fortune and decided to have a celebration and treat all of my friends to a slap up party with free drinks, food and entertainment, in a "Night to Remember".  All from the Forum are invited.
I am sorry for the short notice but It will be worth making the effort to attend.  The Venue is the Queens Hotel, starting at 7.00 p.m. on 30th February.  Dress smart casual.  Carriages at Midnight.

P.s.  Ian you can move this to the appropriate thread for all those who decide they would like to attend! ZXZ
