DO NOT FORWARD: New Virus WarninG - IT'S A HOAX! #latvia

PLEASE EVERYBODY!

INSTEAD OF PANICKING AND THEN CLOGGING UP ALL THE SYSTEMS I SUGGEST THAT YOU:

DO NOT ****NOT*** FORWARD ALL THESE WARNINGS BEFORE YOU HAVE CHECKED THEM
OUT - WHICH IS VERY EASY!

YOU FIND the following message >from June 18, 1998!!!!
At that time it was already an oldie!!!


Quote: Two new warnings have appeared (or
re-appeared) in e-mail recently, often
attached to old familiar warnings about
"Win a Holiday" or "Returned -- Unable to
Deliver". These new warnings say that you
should never download a "Bud Frogs"
screensaver, or a file called
"BUDDYLST.ZIP", because if you do your
hard drive will be erased, or your
password will be stolen. And, of course,
you should forward this warning to all
your friends! (The "Bud Frogs" warning
says that "THIS JUST WENT INTO
CIRCULATION YESTERDAY"; it has
been saying this for months.)

These warnings are, interpreted literally,
false and misleading. Simply downloading
a screen saver or a ZIP file will not do any
damage to your computer. On the other
hand, if you get a program >from a stranger
(or even an unexpected program that seems
to come >from a friend), it's a bad idea to
run it even if it isn't either "Bud Frogs" or
"BUDDYLST.ZIP". So forget the specifics
of the warnings, and just remember that
unknown software can be dangerous. Don't
install it or run it. It won't hurt you if you
just download it and don't run it, but on the
other hand why waste the time? Just delete
it, be it frogs, buddies, or something else
entirely. And, of course, don't forward
either the "Bud Frogs" or the
"BUDDYLST" warning to all your friends;
while it's possible that there are damaging
programs out there with these names, there
are many others with other names, and
getting people excited about these
particular ones is, again, just a waste of
time...

Re: Bios of Manhattan judges #general

Davesap@...
 

There are two sources that I know of to find at least some basic information.
The first is called The American Bench which comes out every year I believe.
The second is Martindale-Hubbell which has a listing of all the lawyers in the
United States and many internationally. Both of these should be available at
any law school library and many public libraries in the United States. In
Israel, I would try one of the law school libraries.

Re: Israel phone book in English? #general

Reuven Singer <reuven-s@...>
 

You are correct. I too am in Jerusalem and there certainly has not been an
English phone book in the last few years. That one was sort of a fiasco as
they attempted to list first names separately but forgot to remove the vav
tying the names of family members together eg. the usual Cohen, Reuven
v'Sara. So they had a long list of first names beginning with the vav -
v'Sara.
Reuven Singer

Sorry, but I live in Jerusalem and I haven't seen an English phone book
since 1989 or thereabouts. ...

Dear Stuart:
I see you had some success with Yad Vashem. I too had a similar experience
regarding the names on the list. Moshe Tuchman was a member of the Kartuz
Bereza Organization in Israel that apparently assembled the 4500 or so names
to submit to Yad Vashem. I suspect he listed himself as a relative so that
these names could be accepted. I also attempted to contact him this summer,
but was told by Chaim Ben-Israel, who heads the organization, that he
unfortunately passed away several months ago. Mr. Ben-Israel did put me in
contact with a woman who was a friend of a family member of mine in Bereza,
who despite her age, was able to confirm the family connections I had put
together >from the Yad Vashem lists.
I would try to contact Mr. Ben Israel in Israel. They are glad to help and are
grateful that people show an interest in their town since it no longer exists
as a Jewish community. I would also attempt to locate the Memorial Book they
published in 1993.
