    AN E-MISSIVE from 10 Downing Street, the official site of the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and all the Europas, wings its way into our inbox with good news. It's gospel, honest guv.
    Hazel Blears, a minister of the interior, said that IT Safe will provide home users and small firms - that's us! - with simple advice to shield PCs, mobile phones and electronic devices from malicious attacks.

    If only Paris Hilton was a UK citizen.

    Said Hazel: "The service is available by email or through text message alerts sent to mobile phones. Clear step by step warnings will tell people what the problem is, how it affects them, and what they can do to avoid trouble."

    She said: "The purpose of this new government service is to ensure computer users are aware of the risks involved and how to deal with them easily and effectively without causing alarm."
