RE: Subject: Virus Warning!

No, it's not wrong but..., well, it can do more harm than good (although that harm is mostly to annoy Ken!) ;-) 

Well, the harm is the cost of everyone in the company spending an hour today installing/upgrading virus software as Dix suggested.  Whether that cost is greater or less than annoying Ken I can't say...

So here's my formula:

1) Avoid exposure. 
3) Take out insurance. 

1) and 3) is good, well written advice.

2) Inoculate yourself.   [...] we developers don't use them.  

In other words, 2) is not really part of "your formula".  'Nuff said.
