This has been going on for three days now, and I don't believe it hasn't been reported before this, but ...

    Warning - about 30 seconds after I had checked the site of the supposed actual author, my browser opened an additional tab, displayed a virus message which had a number to call, and had to be closed down using Task Manager. A quick scan does not show any virus, but I thought I'd warn you before you went hunting on this one.

    Thanks. No, this is actually the first we've seen this. Appreciate the alert.

    Thanks again. In your comment (though I know you can't see it now) who'd was OK too.

    It may have been okay, but it wasn't what I'd wanted to say. (inadvertent rhyme there)

    I just hope I didn't end up overwhelming you guys with the fallout from the subsequent diary. ;)
