    Hey guys and gals,

    Just thought I'd let everyone know that somebody is pretending to be an e-mail admin for cpa-mail.net and launch a virus through it as an attachment. The infection is actually a worm known as beagle/bagle. So just be careful when opening mail in your cpa account if it claims to be from an admin of cpa-mail.net.
    The text below is what was written in the e-mail I got that carried the infected attachment.

    Cheers,
    Ura

    Thanks for the warning, Ura...

    I saw a couple of them but deleted them... I figure there's a better way they'd contact you if they really needed to :)

    Thanks for the heads-up.

    So, where you been?

    Hey Turtle, long time I know.

    I've been busy mostly. Putting in 6 days a week at the casino cause I got promoted to floor manager and am now the second highest ranked in games protection there.
    I was engaged but that blew up in my face about 9 months ago when I discovered her having an affair with an 18 year old high school kid. Crumby to say the least, and to keep it clean. lol
    Bought a new car cause the last one caught fire and exploded on the way to work, sued the mechanic that screwed it up to do that and paid off my brand new one right away though. Yay!!
    Playing alot of amature level poker tournaments when I get the chance and busy happily romancing a lovely new lady that I'm twitterpated with.

    otherwise I still skulk around on ICQ and MSN in the late evenings.

    Yourself?

    Any calls or urges back to Magic? :)

    Not really Spidey. I think cause I'm around cards all day as it is, it kinda stears me from wanting to play any card games. Most days I just want to go home and sleep until tomorrow. That and I'm usually broke, hehe. Just put a highflow exhaust on my car, yummy, vrooom! $1200 I no longer have. :D

    I still read the spoilers as they come out though, some habits just never die I guess. ;)
    The newer sets are interesting but don't really have anything that overly appeals to me. The finesse of when I used to play has been lost for something new and the new isn't my thing.

    Good to hear you're doing well (and your car). My PC died so I only get on sporadically. Some day though.

    Poker is fun. I rarely get to play with real people. Paradise Poker just started up a super-low stakes service, so I'm there as soon as I'm up and running computer-wise. I need to practice my mathing skills before hitting the casino.

    I ripped the driver's side door off my car, too. Well, I didn't rip it off myself, no. Funny story, but I won't go into it here. I got a new one. Well, not a new one.

    I'm in the desert, now. It's hot. It's dry. It's a little slice of heaven. Except for how hot and dry it is. ;)

    Keep in touch.
