2 VIRUS WARNING
Chances are that you've received e-mail messages asking for your
advice. Hopefully you didn't open the attachments.
It usually starts with "Hi! How are you?"
A short message in the middle. Usually "I send you this file in
order to have your advice" or something similar.
And it usually ends with "See you later. Thanks."
Do not open these attachments. If you already opened one - never do
it again. No, seriously, get your careless behind to:
Here's an article about the damage this virus can cause:

4 THIS WEEK'S LIGHT
New domain names. Just hype?
Not just hype, but mostly hype. Dishonest domain name registrars
create hype about new domain extensions to make more money.
Two new domain extensions, .biz and .info are official and will hit
the Net this fall. Any other extensions you hear about (like the .tv
extension) are probably hype. If official new extensions are
announced in future, I'll tell you. Right here.
So do you need a .biz or .info domain name? Nope. Not if you have
a .com that you're happy with. If you don't have a .com that you're
happy with, first try more creative names/combinations before you
get your .biz or .info, because .com is (and will probably remain)
the most recognized and prestigious.
