{Snow Dwarf in Ebox (CB} and Fwd: Re: [Hem-Gathering] Virus?

Sender: owner-hosta-open@mallorn.com

Hi guys,
The " SNOW WHITE AND DWARFS THE REAL STORY" showed up in my mailbox a few
minutes ago again.

Since Jim Hawes mentioned the same subject in his thank you this morning, I
didn't want anyone to open it thinking is was me in response to Jim's thank

I wonder if it gets triggered by the words showing up in our Email?

Sorry Carolyn to mention it when you asked to not spread virus rumors on
Phoenix, but I didn't want anyone to open it thinking it was from me. The
one in my box came from Sexy Fun again.

That's all,
Carol in CT z6/5

Hi to all the Hem-Gathering folks!  Firstly, and by way of an introduction, I'm one of the moderators at various hosta-related forums, running on/at the www.yahoogroups.com list server.  These are *hostapix, nise, streak, hosta_seeds*.
Regarding the email coming from "hahaha@sexyfun"; and which, offers to show the real story about Snow White and the dwarfs, on her 18th Birthday: via an attachment titled "midgets.scr"; and as Arnhild of Norway has already stated:
1) ..the attachment (midgets.scr) contains a worm-like/trojan-virus, which will do damage to your hard-drives and computers will not operate, if this attachment is run.  DO NOT run the "midgets.scr" file!
2) ..there is more information about this virus at the web-site: www.sexyfun.net

Anyone receiving any emails which carry attachments and come to you from total strangers: and particularly, the signature: "hahaha@sexyfun" -- should delete these emails and not run said attachments -- the latter carries a destructive VIRUS!
    Also!  (VIA MS WINDOWS95/98/etc?) -- One should do this to delete attachements:
..mouse click *Start*
..mouse click *Find*
.. and then, type in "midgets.scr" and do a search for the "midgets.scr" FILE
<subnote> the above will FIND the Directory/folder where your email attachments are stored on your hard-drive; and then,
..mouse click START, mouse click PROGRAMS, mouse click WINDOWS EXPLORER and steer yourself into the DIRECTORY/folder where attachments are stored on your hard drive?
.. DELETE the "midgets.scr" file, TO ENSURE THAT NOBODY WILL EVER RUN IT.  While using Windows Explorer, do not double mouse click on the midgets.scr file, else you will have launched that file and virus within. 
<subnote>  ..deleting an email, does not remove the attachment which came with it, since this is stored in a separate directory (other than the folder where emails are stored).  Embedded attachments (pictures within emails) are stored in a separate Directory/folder again.
I'd like to ask a few question related to Hemerocallis-seedlings (verses hosta-seedlings?)
<subnote>    Firstly, it is a well known and an established genetic fact, that hostas having striated leaves, striped flower stems (scapes) and streaky pods: produce streaky/variegated hosta seedlings, on a guaranteed basis, regardless of the pollen parent.  Most of my hosta-hobby revolves around growing such hosta seedlings.
--Hemerocallis (daylily) questions--
1) ...Is there variegated, striped and/or variegated-leaf Daylilies (hems)?
2) ...Do these produce seeds and what kind of result might be had via seedling types -- variegated leaf perhaps?
3) ...Does anyone have such seed? ..and/or might be willing to sell or trade for same type?  That is, to trade for my hosta seed-strain which I call *STRIATED SEEDLING SELECTIONS* and "variegated kids guaranteed"?

THANK YOU KINDLY, to anyone who responds on the questions above
-- and regarding original emails below --
