I Think I'm Back (I Think)
Well, my system's been restored thanks to Boy Wonder (now you know why I called him that), and I've sent an email to him without attachments and it went through clean. I picked him because he has his system locked down tighter than a frog's ass. Later I'll try an attachmentment and see what happens.
So - for the moment I feel comfortable sending out mail and posting again.
What happened? Glad you asked - I'm very careful, but I was checking on She Who Must Be Obeyed's family crest and tartan, and the supposed "tartan" site turned out to be a sex site that hammered me with a new virus - my system condom had a hole in it.
Let this be a lesson - trust no one, do nothing!
