Hi Andy,

I dunno. I guess my first thought was "And then your kids hit that
'magic age' between 8 and 12 when this s@#t is REALLY COOL and they
want to send these back and forth to all their friends - and your
wife tells you to find a way to let them."

I'm thinking someone needs to build an "email for kids" client
that lets this crap run in a _very_ strong sandbox.  I also think
it needs to have an incredibly disgusting name so that if you get
one of these from a business customer you get to say something
like "Wait a minute - I need to fire up 'Babette the Smurfarina
Dinosaur' in order to read your proposal. Please hold."

ya think?

[Oooo ... wait a minute ... my bad ... we should all buy extra machines
for each kid that are easy to rebuild or rebuy ... Mmmmmmmmm 'rebuy' ...
'Hey - I know this place ....']

I'm just grateful that there aren't any people in the world who would
want to use email like this... oh, wait...

... they'll ring to see what
happened (and I can ask them to only send plain text, 'cos my firewall
thought it was a virus'), and if it's not I never have to suffer it...
