Lambda Lunch update, 3/6/01

SOME ADVICE (in view of the virus recently sent to members of the Lambda Lunch list):
        Antitvirus programs neutralized the virus for many of us.  If you're at the NIH, you can obtain your own antivirus software at http://antivirus.nih.gov/.  You should click on "Shortcut to current client downloads", and download the scanning engine and/or DAT file (= list of virus signatures) appropriate for your computer.  You should update the DAT file at least once a month. 

        FYI, my antivirus program detected the virus, which it called "W97M/NiceDay.n".
