: 1.   There is a new virus - WOBBLER. It will arrive
: on e-mail titled CALIFORNIA.


: 2.   If you receive an e-mail titled "Win A. Holiday" DO
: NOT open it.


i believe this exact email was posted to another web design list i'm subbed

a hoax would you?  here's at least one good place to start:


and here if you suspect it's a hoax:
