	    Is China attacking Belgian computers?

Belgian officials say an attempt to infiltrate critical computer 
networks appears to have come from China. Justice Minister 
Jo Vandeurzen told newspapers he believes the Chinese government 
is engaged in espionage. The attacks were carried out using e-mail 
with software that can send information back to the attacker, 
Gazet van Antwerpen and De Tijd reported. The Chinese are 
allegedly interested in Belgium because the European Union 
and NATO have their headquarters in Brussels. Belgium also has 
historical ties to Africa, a continent becoming increasingly 
important to China. The Intelligence Committee has begun an 
investigation, Flandersnews reported. China has allegedly
carried out similar attacks on German and Dutch computers.

		   Happy birthday, dear spam

Spam, not the food product but the Internet nuisance, is having 
its 30th birthday, though a California computer scientist doesn't 
seem inclined to celebrate. It was May 30, 1978, that the first 
unsolicited e-mail ad landed in an Inbox connected to Arpanet -- 
the Advanced Research Agency Projects network -- a research project 
that predated the Internet, the San Francisco Chronicle reported 
Saturday. The first spam was an ad for Digital Equipment Corp., 
a computer manufacturer that did not have the stamina to outlive 
spam. Engineers developing Arpanet condemned spam from the first, 
the Chronicle said. "It was rather an insult to one's 
sensibilities to have an obvious commercial message sent out 
over a research network," said computer scientist Peter Neumann 
of Menlo Park, Calif. Neumann was one of 393 people who first 
experienced the aggravation of spam. Brad Templeton, an Internet 
pioneer who heads the non-profit Eletronic Frontier Foundation, 
has written that it took 15 years for people to start calling the 
junk spam. Templeton told the Chronicle it wasn't until 1994, 
when all kinds of people were traversing the information 
superhighway, that spam was able to reach out and annoy 
large numbers of Internet users.

	     Boomers pursue more youthful brain

U.S. baby boomers, scared their brains are decaying, are driving 
a mini-industry of brain health products, retailers tell The 
New York Times. The products don't just include food supplements 
like ginseng, but computer games or software advertised as able 
to restore some brain function. The Times said computer 
products include Nintendo's Brain Age 2, a video game with 
"simple math and memory exercises," and MindFit, a software 
program that combines cognitive assessment with a personalized 
training regimen based on that assessment, and selling for about 
$149. David Bunnell, a magazine publisher who lives in Berkeley, 
Calif., is among those with memory fears When he went to a FedEx 
store a few years ago to send a package, "I couldn't remember my 
address," Bunnell, 60, told the Times "with a measure of horror 
in his voice." "I knew where I lived, and I knew how to get there, 
but I didn't know what the address was." The newspaper said Bunnell 
is among tens of millions of baby boomers facing a decline of 
brain sharpness.
