Nah, has to be bogus. Wasn't that the name of Chevy Chase's character in the
Nat'l. Lampoon "Vacation" movies ?

I've been out of town for most of the last 12 days, but tried to keep up with my
mail (apart from replies, which are more trouble to do, because of the "guest" mail
servers -- Pac. Bell still offers no roaming service, just dial-up from local
access #s) during that time. At least one Klez came in every day on the EarthLink
account, riding one piece of Spam or another. Some persistent little S.O.B.

I don't know which is more annoying -- that, or the tag-team of Netbus + Sub-7
attempts that bounce off my firewall most days at home. If there was some magic
button I could press that would cause the _true_ sender's system to explode, you
know that would be very tempting. (The so-called "origin" IP addresses will almost
always be spoofed or stolen.)
