    You mean like SoBig.F? Went from nothing to ballisitic in hours.
    Even that's not good advice. The sender could be someone you know who has
    unknowingly got a virus. You shouldn't trust any attachment from anyone.
    Are you still in school or university??? Clearly you don't mix with users
    in the real world. Yes in our little utopia, all users think about what
    they're doing. Sadly, reality is far removed.

    Anyway, this so far off topic now we ought to wrap it up. At least, I'm
    going to.

  2. version.

    I oretty sure the "E" is for the European model, if you put trv250 in google
    it comes up with all the US ones for sale, add the E and your into European
    More so than Digital 8, thats for sure:>)

    In say 3 or 4 years mini DV may well be more widely used, but most
    people simply plug their cameras into their computer, edit it, and
    either burn it to DVD or send it back to the camcorder to be
    transfered to VHS.

    You don't gain any picture quality from using mini DV over Digital8,
    so I don't think you need worry about it too much

  4. The advantage i see a few years down the line of buying mini dv now, is
    you'll have a lot more choice of what camera you can buy/upgrde to, theres
    certainly more mini dv cams at the moment than there are digitial 8!

    You seem to be contradicting yourself - or you are unaware that the
    lines resolution obtained burning from miniDVD to DVD (and SVCD) is
    considerably better that that of Digital8.

    Really?....................According to your very own web site there
    is no difference in the formats quality.

    Look http://www.camcord.info/formats/index.html

  9. I hate to be pedantic but the URL being used in this SCAM is not
    exactly a valid URL for the bank and there is no redirection. Instead
    the URL looks like http://olb.westpac.com.au :User ..stuff..
    [email protected] which simply sends the browser to This is because the URL up to the @ is being
    interpreted as a username/password combination with the
    olb.westpac.com.au part being treated as a username!!! The real bank
    site is not doing any redirection and is not involved in this URL.

    (See http://www.rain.org/~mkummel/stumpers/08dec00a.html or
    http://www.pc-help.org/obscure.htm for more information on the
    structure of URLs)

    I understand some of the emails are using an even more complicated URL
    of the form http://olb.westpac.com.au
    SecurityUpdate&[email protected]%31%39%34%2e%31%33%35%2e%32%32%2e%39%31/west/

    I'll leave it as an exercise for the reader to figure out what site
    that URL leads to!

    You can understand that this form of URL does lead a lot of people
    into thinking that they are visiting the real bank site - but yes they
    should always check what site they end up at! (and run anti-virus and
    firewall software, and install critical security patches, and never
    use public access computers for online banking... ) :(

    Also I understand that the banks have been taking this stuff pretty
    seriously and have used US law enforcement to close down a number of
    sites within hours of them becoming active. If everyone is vigilant
    and immediately report fake emails and any active ghost web sites then
    we are all going to be better off!
