I beg to differ in the strongest possible terms.  This might be the only
place some people would actually get the warning, as being on-line on
the Merry Rose does not mean that they are active elsewhere.  Thus, if
someone did not get a virus warning here, but did get a virus via e-mail
(such as the "Melissa" viruse we are currently being warned about), they
could open it, take the virus, and possibly find their computer trashed
for a while and perhaps unable to access the Merry Rose.

Discussions of Tolkien movies and the like probably don't belong here,
but warnings about viruses for those who come here are, in my humble
opinion, quite germane.
