Edwards AFB shutdown
 From the Washington Times:

     Computer systems at Edwards Air Force Base, Calif., were shut down
this week as a result of the "Blaster" computer worm.

     The desert base is home to the Air Force Flight Test Center, which
conducts work on the B-2 and B-1B bombers, the airborne laser, the
Global Hawk unmanned aerial vehicle, the new F-22 Raptor jet fighter,
the Joint Strike Fighter and other high-tech weapons.

     "We stopped access to our base computer network Monday about 2 p.m.
because of the Blaster worm," said Air Force Lt. Col. Kerry Humphrey, a
base spokeswoman.

     "We don't know how much damage was done, but we're slowly but
surely getting our system back on line."

  testing, only testing, and damn good at it too!
  The good thing about potential is,
          as long as you do nothing,
                  you'll always have it.
