Indeed. That why I rarely send out update notices for SuperSpice. I
generally update every few days, but if someone wants to get the latest,
they know where to look.
I must admit that it is now getting quite tiresome all Spam in my email.
Viruses are not a problem for me as such, lets face it, all attachments
are viruses for the most part so I just delete it all. My default
settings in OE are set to not allow saving or running of anything. I
allways keep all Java off in IE as well.
SuperSpice, a very affordable Mixed-Mode

Waveform Display, FFT's and Filter Design.
