Music virus

In all my computing years the only data loss* I've had was from the "Music virus". I got it from a dodgy copy of "The Prince of Persia" which was running on a 286. Sure enough it played a tune while deleting the FAT :(

I've gone all Linux now so apart from Flash I should be safe. When the BBC finally stop using Flash it will be removed immediately.

*AFAIR nothing important was lost
