Thanks, Verna. Just what America needs -- more fear-mongering.

Better stay at home, folks. Cross that street and the bus will run you
down, just as the lightning is striking you.



[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: That is not really true, Henry. First
of all, the bus hitting you or lightning striking you are very slim
chances, but the chances of (a) some sort of crazy person encroaching
on your privacy on line or (b) the chances of your computer being
attacked _merely because it is left turned on_ are quite real. You
should wish all you had to worry about was lightning or getting hit by
a bus ... malfeasance involving your computer is a much more real,
more common occurrance. Not necessarily a stalker, perhaps, but some
jerk wanting to play games none the less. PAT]
