This is sort of off-topic here, but I want to pose this question (which IS apropo to these times) IMHO: If so much interest is shown in hacking microsoft, sending viruses in email, and general mischief (and some of it seems so well done), why not "enlist" these hackers in disrupting, intercepting, communications and money flow between terrorists. On a slightly related note, I have an article written 1-Sep-2001 that might be of slight interest. Disclaimer: My persona in this "webzine" is to be somewhat provocatinve, somewhat tongue-in-check and rambling is permissable BUT, having said that - I both plug rebol and talk about some serious stuff that most of us haven't shown a lot of interest in, but perhaps that has changed now. see "Tim's Bytes" tj
