Thanks Doug, being a quadriplegic this is of particular interest to me. I will 
be watching for it's implementation and will notify my primary care physician 
and my physiatrist. I hope they can perhaps get me into a study or in some way 
get me going on this treatment as soon as available. If you or anyone else knows
more about the implementation of this I'd surely appreciate you help getting 
the information.

*Note* Outlook

> Security experts at F-Secure have analyzed the virus thoroughly. Users usually
get an e-mail, sometimes from someone they know, asking them to check the 
attached "Love Letter." That file is a VisualBasic script, which contains the 
virus payload. As long as the user deletes the e-mail without opening the 
attachment, their computer is safe from harm. Once a computer is infected, the 
virus transmit itself through e-mail using Outlook's address book.

This is one of the reasons I don't use Outlook (express or full version) for 
email. Many people do not know this but Outlook will activate these types of 
viruses or other macro code automatically before you even get the chance to 
delete it. I heard this reiterated on MSNBC by the author of Informatica, who 
was being interviewed about this particular virus. Perhaps there is a way of 
turning off this feature of Outlook's but I will still continue to

use Netscape Messenger or another email client for the simple reason that I 
avoid Microsoft products wherever possible. Uncle Billy is rich enough! 
Furthermore, I object to such a powerful and wealthy beyond belief company 
CHARGING FOR TECH SUPPORT!! If their product is GOOD they should stand behind 
it. It seems even they don't have much confidence in it so they CHARGE YOU when 
THEY are at fault! I also object to being an unpaid beta tester. They put

out buggy code then rely on the consumer to PAY TO COMPLAIN then they put out 
endless patches. They even had the nerve to charge to Windows 98 SE!!! We 
consumers put up with way to much from big brother Microsoft. I'll be glad if 
they break it up. Uncle Billy's greed gonna bite him in the ass!!
