The address listed on the return address is not the real sender on this virus. The virus scours the victim's computer for email addresses and installs those as phony return addresses. So if you get a virus email it probably does not come from Sal or anyone else listed as the sender. That is what mak...

When I was a kid I had a pet tarantula. Real slow moving, ate flies and other bugs that I could find. One day it was crawling on my shirt and it made it's way under the front onto my chest. Maybe I was rough when I pulled it out, but it had it's fangs out. That was enough for my spider ranching days...

I have had a few stainless handled Spydercos that I brought back to life with a Scotch-Brite pad. It had enough texture to give the handle the same original "brushed" finish. Of course like any advice, try at your own risk. Spyderwa

This is not a person sending out emails to forum members. All it takes is for the virus to get into one computer where it scans for email addresses which it then copies and sends out using the scanned email addresses as the return address. The owner of the infected computer may not even know this is...

Simona is right. Here is a link to an PC World article about the virus. Evidently it harvests email addresses from the victim's computer than sends out email with the harvested email addresses listed as the sender. That is why you might get mail listed as returned to you even though you did not send...

I woke up to find my mailbox jammed with email from everyone with pif attachments. Most seem to have Spyderco connections. My virusscanner seems to have caught and flagged them as viruses. Be careful and don't open any attachments. Good luck.

After handling a couple of the Ti model and noticing differences between them I have concluded that consistancy must not be one of the strengths of this German manufacturer. On Japan and US made Spydercos they have the same look, feel, and operation model to model. Spyderco is pretty fussy about wha...

I was having lots of problems with battery life using ni-cad batteries. Then I tried Nickel Metal Hydride AA cells. This has allowed me to go 100% digital. Before I was not willing to trust batteries on trips.

I have had good luck with my Nikon, but it comes down to personal preferences. I would recommend sticking with cameras that take the compact flash format cards as they seem to have the best acceptence in the market. Then I would take a flash card into the store and ask to try the camera out around t...

Obviously it is a rip-off copy, but the question is how round is the hole. Some companies have been trying to get around the spyderhole patent by using elogated holes. When the elongated hole becomes too close to round you can try to enforce the patent. If a company does not act to protect the paten...

If you are just starting out, I would recommend starting a spreadsheet showing details on each knife as you acquire it. This helps down the road for valuing your collection as well as keeping track of what you might want to trade. My Excel file lists model name, model #, blade metal, handle material...

Unless you need the sharper point of the Ladybug, the Jester is more functional. For general pocket duty the Jester is easier to manipulate. What makes the Ladybug so endearing is that it is a miniature version of the Delica.

The Ti Delica was hard enough to find, but I'm sure there are more. Let me know if you want to track one down. There were no customs fees, and shipping was about $10 U.S. I also got a blue Jester at the same time along with a Sakai "Q".
