Oh for god sake, give me a break! You should've just deleted that email! Don't take everything seriously. I probably wouldn't have even bothered with that email. It just waists space in inboxes all around the world when forwarded to a list such as this.

Hi,
Firstly, you don't need to hack someone's computer to get their IP address. Secondly, for them to tailor the game to behave differently on your computer only, means they'd have to get the source (or know how to edit hex,) and get a fingerprint of your computer, then upload the infected copy to the main game site and replace the old one with their version. Next, your computer does not have an IP address unless it is connected to the internet--or you force change it. Nowadays, your computer is assigned an address only when it connects to the router handing out addresses. If it is forcec ahnged, then you most likely won't be able to connect to the internet until you give yourself up to DHCP again. As for the restart bug I remember someone else mentioned it too. So if this person did change the code, well, they're a pretty bad programmer to say the least. I think they need to take some REAL computer science courses versus just pretending they know how to do x y and z--like many blind people tend to do, unfortunately.

Hi all
I was totally shocked when I got a very strange e-mail.
And I am dead serious, this is not a joke.
I really got this e-mail!
It follows:

Hello nicol
I sit with a very ugly grin on my face as I am writing this e-mail.
I see you are having a very nice time with the sara game, ay?
Ghosts only takes little itsy bits of energy away if you are getting
touched by them.
And they are talking so nicely to you, telling you for instance that
they hope you get sorted into the huffle puf house.
I do not like this, rahrorrr!
I enjoy it when you quickly lose the game.
Mooo haaa haaa
So I went and tampered with the sarah game.
I hacked in on mister vlasak's server and I have tampered with the sarah
game. While you were surfing on the net, I hacked in on your computer
and got your I p address.
Then I hacked into mister vlasak's server and tampered with the sara
game in such a way that  only you will lose the game quikly.
I tampered with the ssarah game in such a way that it will read your I p
address  even though you are not on the net.
Other gamers are quite relaxed if they lose in pack man, so far it is
only you who gets frustrated when losing in pack man.
Mooo ha ha ha ha
Now the friendly hogwarts ghosts, will almost behave like us pack man
ghosts, on higher floors of hogwarts at least.
You have most probably already noticed this.
When you get touched by a ghost, whether you are in patronous mode or
not, the game restarts.
I actually made a bit of a mess, you know?
I did not intend that the game must restart if you touch a ghost when you are in patronous mode. But well, no use crying over spilled pumpkin
juice, you know?
<slight grin>
But at least you lose the game very easily on higher floors of hogwarts.
That's how I like it!
So do not blame phil for this strange behavior that you are
experiencing.
I tampered with the sarah game.
Its not a bug on phil's  side.
Its also not your computer lacking resources.
Its me, I tampered with the sarah game.
Now you certainly are going to  ask me how I did it?
Mooo haaa haaa
Do you really think I am  going to tell you, ay?
<evil grin>
Well, unfortunatly, I cannot get the sarah game  ghosts to say things
that we pack mang ghosts say but at least now I know they will end the
game quickly just like we ghosts are doing in pack man.
I enjoy it when you bang your head against the wall of frustration, I
enjoy it when you are pulling at your hair.
That's how it should be!
Cheers
End of e-mail
Guys, I will not joke about something like this.
I really got this e-mail.
I am aware that the pack man ghosts is not real, probably an evil guy
out there trhying to do me and phil  in.
I hope he can be traced and persecuted for what he did.
Mods and gamers, please believe me. This is not a joke.
This is real.
I really got the e-mail.
Please do not be surprised if you try to contact this bloke and the mail
bounce back to you.
He probably just set up this address to send me this nasty e-mail and
then he will most probably delete the e-mail address after sending the
mail successfully.
I know what question might be on your lips right now.
"Nicol, How do you know that this evil dood are aware that you at some
time enjoyed the ssarah game a lot and  that you are now  getting
strange behavior in the sarah game?"
Well, he most probably reads the archives of this list.
