If your internet interface is secure, it is not a worry. Amusing at times but not a worry. If your system does not notify you of such attacks, you are not well protected. Me, I piggyback a couple of firewalls on my pc. Don't forget to keep your Windoze updated.

Quite a fanciful site. I may go back to read some.

I appreciate the warning. One less piece of spyware or one less virus to scan for is always a good thing. Thank you.
Oh, East of sands and sunlit gulf, your blood is thin, your gods are few;
You could not break the Northern wolf and now the wolf has turned on you.
The fires that light the coasts of Spain fling shadows on the Eastern strand.
Master, your slave has come again with torch and axe in his right hand!
