Uh huh... Sure. They forgot to mention that your computer doesn't even
need to be powered on to get infected. ;-)

Folks, to avoid the costs and discomfort of an oral podectomy, please
visit and read one or more of the following _before_ relaying this
"e-mail virus" nonsense:

http://www.informatik.uni-trier.de/~bern/GoodTimes-Hoax/
http://www.informatik.uni-trier.de/~bern/GoodTimes-Hoax/MiniFAQ.html
http://www.informatik.uni-trier.de/~bern/GoodTimes-Hoax/FAQ.htm
ftp://ftp.usit.net/pub/lesjones/good-times-virus-hoax-faq.txt
ftp://ftp.usit.net/pub/lesjones/good-times-virus-hoax-minifaq.txt

If you can't get there, please drop me a note and I'll send you a copy
of the FAQ.

If you have already forwarded the hoax, please follow with a copy
of the FAQ and if at all possible, send it "upstream" too!

Regards,
Charlie
