Better yet (says he with more than a touch of smugness):Put a Linux partition on your computer and answer your e-mail from there.There's been a couple of Linux viruses in the last year, but none of they can do anything unless you're stupid enough to use the internet while logged in as root user - and that's still far fewer than the Windows has.

In fact, you can even open up viruses in a text editor and have a look at them.That's a little scary, by the way: most of them are so simple that a person with only the fundamentals of programming could write one.

"To Newgate Gaol they took him, the Ranter's dream was dead,
He had no taste for martyrdom; 'I will recant,' he said,
'I banished sin, but I have erred, it cannot be denied
'That these are sin: greed, tyranny, hypocrisy and pride.'"
