Sometimes, once must perpetrate a sin to perform a great good.  In
this case, messing Windows users about.

Which reminds me, if you add an X-Message header, Outlook 98 and 2000

.ico, I think.  It's been over five years since I messed with Windows
icons, so my recollection is no doubt just wrong enough to fuck you
