Frozen Electrocompetent Yeast, anyone?

Does anybody have any protocol that allows S. cerevisiae to be frozen 
after the cells have been rendered electrocompetent? ... You know, like 
the E.coli cells. I have not been able to locate any protocol that allows 
for that luxury.

Thanks in advance


PS. BTW, there is this nasty "worm" that somehow infected my PC, and is 
now sending out random mailings from my computer, apparently with a large 
txt attachment having a long name and a weird, etc 
extension. I had been warned before, but that didn't prevent my PC from 
getting infected. I think it was because the Eudora downloads the 
attachment automatically. I was made aware of the problem by "returned 
mails" and a notice of quarantine by another administrator. So, the worm 
is actually mailing out to random addresses via the newsgroups that I am 
subsribed at. I am not sure how to get rid of this "worm" and would 
appreciate any help.
