Just a friendly reminder:  Please *do not* forward things that say "Please
forward this to everyone you know" (virus warnings, scam warnings and the
like). The websites Tom listed are really good places to check the
validity of email like this.  

Most of those things are sort of like email virii.  They go around the
'net forever and waste resources.  Too many well-meaning folks get caught
by them.
