i just thought i would pass along something to think about....
We are all worried about secure air travel, car bombs, etc... but what if these people (who are very computer competent) unload a computer virus on us? Think about it, a deadly computer virus could basically shut down the country and cause all kinds of havoc. Not to mention, None of us expects it!!
granted, not murdering people isnt the "style" of these people, but i wouldnt put it past them..
careful what email you read, theres some pissed off people out there that want to ruin your life in any way they can... just a friendly warning.

Please don´t get me wrong, but we´ve just had it in the ZDF ("Zweites Deutsches Fernsehen") news that a new, very aggressive virus has just been detected. It alledgedly spreads through the Internet Explorer.
So if you haven´t done that, already, you might want to disable active scripting and other non-essential add-on stuff, or, better yet, use another browser.
Please note: No connection to the terrorists has been found or even alledged so far! Just stay calm, use a different browser if possible and take care!
