Kai bops to Bongo Maffin
We’ve had another hectic week in the office; work is piling up on our desks, staff getting sick, non-existent power-cuts, and so are looking forward to being able to just work quietly without the phone going every 3 minutes! We were going to go away, but clearly we are needed!
I was chatting to another well-known artist representative from Johannesburg, and he warned me about a virus that has been attacking his system – so I thought I would check it out before it hits me!
Seems it is the Stration Virus – comes with the zip file and the following message:
Mail server report.
Our firewall determined the e-mails containing worm copies are being sent from your computer.
Nowadays it happens from many computers, because this is a new virus type (Network Worms).
Using the new bug in the Windows, these viruses infect the computer unnoticeably.
After the penetrating into the computer the virus harvests all the e-mail addresses and sends the copies of itself to these e-mail addresses
Please install updates for worm elimination and your computer restoring.

Would you trust that nice English? So, I suppose if you do open the zip file and download it, and your computer gets infested – you’re a doffie! Surely people understand that unless it comes directly from the virus protection program, you’re not going to open it?
Anyway – it’s Friday, and so I decided to post a little more insight into the Peak family. Our boys Jasper & Kai are often heard in the background of telephone conversations, and so I’m going to show you how Kai has been an integral part of the behind-the-scenes creative process – when he can keep his eyes open that is!
Hope you have a great weekend, keep the music playing, and remember to protect yourself! It’s a nasty virus.
And, now that I've discovered you, I think I may visit more often as, apart from being gay, we have lots in common! :-)
I think I'll celebrate with a lil grappa instead of the vodka - knowing you'll visit!
Keep the flag fluttering!
