5 hours of the filtering rules and so far so good, no complaints so
far o I guess the folks around here a to busy swapping Flash

Actually I was thinking of that but I decided to extend the rules a
bit into general browsing, it doesn't hurt that much - that way I can
get some sleep at night during major worm-fests.  On the subject of
webmail servers - I know Hotmail serves attached files from no-name
servers (i.e. the URL is an IP) so filtering hotmail.com for \.exe$
won't stop 'em.

Yup, you're right - I'm gonna add it in...
