You know you've really made it when they name a virus after you. Yup another stoooopid VBS virus is making the rounds as the Anna Kournikova virus.

It's also worth noting. (I've known this for some time)That california is the sickest place on earth

Grins. I've stopped posting Microsoft security holes as news... Every time we see one of these things fly around sysadmins slap yet another mail filter in place that'll work 'til some 12 year old decides to create the next generation mutation, rather than people wising up and implementing real solutions.

(Of course the fact that "real solutions" most likely involve summary execution of a specific class of (l)users and decision making managers has something to do with that.)

It is quite sad, however, that "made it" for women in sports means "looks pretty". She's not the greatest woman of tennis, she's (supposedly) the best looking, and she isn't black. I guess shoe could have avoided all the bogus positive press (and probably the virus fame) if she had come out as a lesbian, a virgin Mormon, or an avid bowler.

Well, I dunno that you can equate her pin-up fame with her reputation in the sports world. Hanging out at a friend's house recently, her parents were there, and he's an ex-Marine, ex-autoworker sports nut. He couldn't wait to see the Williams sisters play, and he had good things to say about their style.
