Oh, I thought this would be about the infectious & contagious nature of
Shakespeare.

I use a Mac G2 for the Net. Does this virus infect Macs?

For those interested in nipping this stuff in the bug [ sic :) ], do not
maintain an Address Book.

You can keep addresses in a separate folder, and copy and paste when
needed.

I keep all addresses in a paper journal, and address my emails the
old-fashioned way.

It also maintains one's memory, for those still interested in using the
gray matter.

Please don't spread unnecessary attachment paranoia.  I send my reviews
and scripts out to publishers, readers, and producers as attached files,
after an exchange of emails confirming that the material is about to be
sent.  I have an imac with up to date virus protection, do not use OE,
and I carefully put my name and the title of the review or script and
the name of the file attachment in the subject line.  No one need fear
to get an essay or script this way: it is safe.

I do wish that people who send me attached flyers for their theatre
events would be as cautious.  My mail program filter automatically dumps
files with attachments in a separate mailbox, and I do not open emails
with attachments until after I have run them through my virus detection
program.   If they came preceded by an announcement and with a clear
subject title, I could open with confidence the legitimate ones.  As it
is, when I'm in a hurry I take no chances and delete anything even
slightly suspicious.
