well, i have done a very bad thing, and totally imposed on our
friendship, and I hope you don't hate me.
But i needed, i really needed, a quote on sircam variants this
am, and yours was the best one I had. I used it. without asking
you. I am an evil unethical person, and u probably hate me.
I can still pull it if you let me know ASAP.

I NEEDED an intellegent comment on sircam code this morning. (said in a very small voice) so used this quote from yr emails without your permission: 'It won't be easy to create variations on SirCam. The code for this virus was compiled, written in programming language. It's not a simple script that a kiddie can play with,' said Rick Downes, a programmer with Radsoft. 'Whoever wants to make a SirCam variant has to be able to write their own code which is significantly more difficult than just tinkering with a line in a script, or running it through a virus creation kit.' how bad do you hate me? It was a not-good thing to do, but I am so overwhelemed here w/ work, and people were screaming at me for story,and no one could say what u said as good as you said it, and I couldn't find you..... if that doesn't make sense, give me yr number and i will call and explain

I should have waited. Doesn't help now or > change anything, but I thought you should know. I hesitate to ask, but what exactly am I supposed to know? As for not changing anything, you said you could. Now you say you can't. That sort of jeopardises your credibility factor, doesn't it? Anyway, I said I hesitate to ask, and I do. Maybe I should have let it go - write an editorial on the ethics of journalism and go out and have a Jack Daniels and let it go. Well I am not going to have any Jack Daniels, for I don't feel so deeply affected, but I am going to start polishing up this editorial. Maybe you'll want to proof-read it for me later. R.
