Message from Brian Stoddard...


Have you ever heard me say "I don't open attachments."

Experts say that is your best policy, don't open attachments. 
You avoid viruses that way.

If you are going to forward something, click forward, add my email address, then copy/paste the contents of your attachment, right into the email that you are sending, with no attachment.

I only open attachments from my sister. :)

Experts such as Leo Laporte of The Tech Guy
www.TWIT.TV  and Leo with his various buddies from TWIT
(This Week in Tech) www.twit.tv contains several "Podcast" shows that keep me informed.

I listen to them when I walk along the Bald Hill Path. Check out, at least, the tech guy show; it covers, cellphones, tv, video,computer, iMac, PC, surround sound, projectors, "anything with a chip" as Leo puts it.

Regards, Brian
