[Sorry about the non-operational content]

 I complained at SkyInet.net about two hours ago - they were very responsive
and said they'd pull the offending files immediately.	
 They seem to have done so.

 If anyone wants removal instructions, LMK. Also, if anyone wants a copy of
the .exe for analysis, I have one.

Cheers,
