I got about three copies of "Administratium" a few months ago -
from mom, from R.J.Tavel, .... Evidently it hasn't finished
rippling yet this time.

Do memes have a characteristic time? The "dark headlights
gang initiation" story went everywhere in a few days, and was
debunked as quickly. The "PKZIP300 virus" story took about
a week. The "Good Times mail virus" story took months, if
memory serves, perhaps because it was propagated only by
the slow of mind ;). But its recent mutation, "Irina", was
very short-lived. "Craig Shergold" - don't get me started.
