BRIGADA – A GREAT WAY TO LEARN JAPANESE
FROM THE “JANET RENO DIDN’T SAY IT” DEPT.
ANOTHER STEP TO SAFEGUARD YOUR PC FROM TROJANS
As an additional step, if you have a virus scanner (you do have a virus scanner don’t you?), add the .SHS and .SHB extensions to its list of program files. This way your scanner is more likely to spot them as they surface. McAfee and several others have a means to do this. If you’re really paranoid, you can disable scrap objects by one or both of these means: Alter or remove both file types in the File Types dialog. (Open an Explorer window, and select View… Options… and the File Types tab. Look for Shell Scrap Object and Shortcut to Document.) To disable scrap files very thoroughly (this is the way I did it), remove or rename the shscrap.dll file in your System folder. Search your hard drive(s) and see if you have any scrap object files hanging about. Who knows what might turn up? (Thanks to the folks at PC-Magazine for this tip!) If you’re really paranoid, you can always get BlackICE Defender ( http://www.netice.com ) or ZoneAlarm ( http://www.zonelabs.com ) to help you watch your Internet back.

DISCLAIMER — Please note that there’s no way we can possibly screen all the text on all the web sites or items we recommend. We try to check them out first… but if we miss something, please don’t assume that the opinions on those sites are identical to those of the Brigada family of networks. “Eat the corn, leave the cob!”
For subscription questions or problems, write firstname.lastname@example.org.
SUBMITTING CONTENT — To submit content or ideas to Brigada Today, first please get a copy of “Guidelines for submitting items to Brigada” Then, once you’ve composed your item in keeping with those guidelines, send your item for Brigada Today to DLucas@teamexpansion.org.
Emphasis is placed on items relating to unreached peoples and challenges faced by those reaching them cross-culturally.
PLEASE DON’T SUBSCRIBE US TO YOUR LIST — It’s always better to ask before manually force-adding anyone to your list-serve or mailing list. Recently, tons of well-meaning people have been subscribing Doug to their lists. Since he often travels overseas, he doesn’t join many of those, for obvious reasons (like being charged big-time for overseas access). So as a general rule, please don’t bulk-mail us! See the note above if you’d like to submit items for Brigada Today. Thanks for understanding. Bottom line: We will never create Brigada Today items from bulk mail. Bulk mail gets deleted immediately — sorry. Nothing personal. We suggest you apply the same standard to everyone. Ask first!
WARNING ABOUT FORWARDING EMAILS — Please, before forwarding any kind of request (even if it says “please send this to all your friends”), please check to make sure it has a VERIFIABLE ORIGIN, a VERIFIABLE PURPOSE, and a VERIFIABLE CLOSURE (OPC). By following this simple approach, many “email viruses” could be nipped in the bud… at least in the Brigada family. More information about the full Brigada OPC protocol is available. Thank you.
