As some of you may have figured out already, it appears that FPSpace is under another virus/spam attack. Someone used one of my old, defunct e-mail addresses to send a message (they tried the same thing several months ago, using my name and then Jim Oberg's name--which I think they have lifted off an FPSpace archive). And then there was another message from another e-mail address.
I deleted these things and suggest you do too.
I agree with Mr. Kennedy (whose message did not come through on my machine, but whose subject line was clear) that this list-serve should NOT accept attachments anymore. They are easy virus vectors. Changing the software to deflect all messages with attachments is a good security precaution.
