Tomorrow I will leave my parents' home, which means no PC and no Internet anymore. My mother and my brother don't respect the needs of quietness I have to fully recover from depression and to study for my thesis. They engaged an eternal conflict I tried to stop with kindness and love for one whole year now (also by not attending my listenings at uni), but they don't listen to what I suggest and I've been losing too much during that period.

There's also a new page about the thesis work I abandoned on late July, available on http://digilander.libero.it/tcengineer/BT/index.html and also reachable from the Production section.

I-Worm.Sober.c is actually spreading via the internet as an attachment to infected e-mails. Since i'm receiving some infected e-mails, it may mean some of you have this Worm running on their PCs.
My suggestion is "delete emails coming from unknown senders and do not open the attachment".
Symanthec provides all information about the worm and its removal here:

Quoting from Libero e-mail about the recent feature concerning the advertising frame on the right (freely translated):
"The format of these advertisements will not modify the structure and graphics of pages, or rather will enrich them with new contents useful for surfers. In fact, the sponsorized links will be related to the context and containings of the Personal Page, in order to offer to the user new information and interesting news."
After more than a month, in sign of complaint against my host for the advertising frame, not related anyway with my Pages and corrupting their graphics, I will add my own advertising banners in the links section, including porno ones. They will be in a new page you can reach from the links section following the "Adult links" link. I do not expect you to agree with this section containings but I hope you will respect them;
The worm named Worm.Automat.AHB comes as .exe file attached to fake e-mails apparently from Microsoft. It sends itself to victims filling their e-mail box in multiple versions and e-mail subjects. Attached exe is 140-155 kB about. You're warned.
Updated CircleMUD Builder PreRelease.
Quickest worm I've seen: this morning my e-mail box was carrying 9 spoofed e-mails trying to infect my PC with "W32.Sobig.F@mm" worm.
Since this worm spoofs email addresses before sending itself to other people, you may receive infected e-mails from my e-mail address too, which could bring you here.
Symanthec provides all information about the worm and its removal here:
