    You're probably fine as long as you're not using MS Outlook or Outlook express.
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    Now, I'm not sure of the spelling but are you related to the gentlemen who work on the Pacers staff? Or are you one of them?
    Two=the number 2
    Too=means "also"
    To=many definitions-also known as the one to use when the other 2 (two, too) do not apply.

    Their=shows ownership-'it is their house'
    They're=they are
    There=many definitions-also known as the one to use when the other 2 (their, they're) do not apply

    Sorry but it bugs me when these are used incorrectly when I read posts on PacersDigest.com.

    Fast Fingered Foremski (SP???) the long time Pacers stats man...no relation. I just loved the named and have always thought it (Fat Fingers) a befitting description of my typing abilities. I have often used the moniker as such.

    Just FYI... there are a lot of (free) good email programs out there that run on Windows and are more secure than Outlook Express. One is included in Mozilla, for example. There's also Pegasus, which a lot of my friends use.

    Anybody else have their Internet Explorer affected by this worm?

    I think I'll just uninstall IE, then reinstall it. At least I'm running on a different server for the time being as a backup.

    Evidentlly the worm can also come thru something called Kazaa...what that is I don't know but Geezer Jr. has it on his desktop and McAfee Virus Screener put out an alert about the virus and named Kazaa as one source of it.

    Yes, Paul is an acquaintance of my father's (former co-worker) and was wondering if it was the same person.

    Side note, his son works for the Pacers as well.
