Where can I get help?

Where did the name come from?
No other bacteria, perhaps organism, had so much of an effect on human history as Yersinia pestis, the bacteria that causes plague. Many outbreaks of plague have caused death and population reduction throughout history. The most famous, however, was the notorious Black Death of medeival times that killed one third of the population of 14th century Europe. People watched their family and friends die with sickly buboes (swollen lymph nodes) on their necks and a color near black all over their bodies, caused by respiratory failure. People who contracted the disease and were unable to fight it off died within three to five days. (taken from http://members.aol.com/omaryak/plague/)

How do you dare to implement a tool for doing nasty things?
Hey! take it easy. We are pen-testers, so we need this little proggie for making chaos in our customers networks. Running yersinia to do "bad things" is not recommended and could cause inestability and serious troubles to your health.

Wtf? This crappy software does not run in Windows.

I'm unable to switch between different protocol windows!!
To switch between protocol windows you must use the function keys. Unfortunately the way function keys works is different with different terminal emulations. If you have problems with the function keys enable some other function keys emulation in your client terminal software, e.g.: On PuTTY select Terminal -> Keyboard and mark "The Function Keys and keypad" as "Xterm R6".

Why the hell the ncurses interface has a lot more options than the Cisco interface?
Man... we are developing this proggy out of work time, it's just a matter of time... Anyway you can try to help us... :)

Arrgggghhh!!! The proggy crashes 'ad infinitum', is this a f*ck*n' sh*t?
