Hey guys, went to bed last night tired as all 'ell. Woke up this morning with 115 new messages full of pissed off people. Sorry about that. My computer somehow got infected with this new virus by the name of W32.SirCam. I'm in the process of emailing all people who have sent me the virus and all the people my computer has sent the virus to. I'm aware of it being sent to at least FlashFire, Stretch, and I believe Adam. Apologies guys. https://www.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/w32.sircam.worm@mm.html
You can find some info on the worm here as well as most any of the major antivirus company webpages.Thanks for your time.

1. CAUTION: Knife is very sharp. Keep out of children
2. A truly wise man never plays leapfrog with a unicorn.
3. Always remember to pillage BEFORE you burn.

I thought I might add a link for a removal tool. It's also linked from the first page I mentioned above.

Ack! That happened to me today too! The really really bad thing is that my friend and I are organizers of a drum and dance event, and a lot of people on our mailing list got this virus. It just makes us look really really bad. I don't even know where the virus came from... I had to reinstall Win98 and everything!
