Doug, et. al.,
The "child" they were refering to was 17 years old and his name and photo
has already been printed. I read it two weeks ago but don't remember where.
Actually, the "child in question" took the Blaster worm and wrote a
'variant' of it. He got caught because, he didn't know how to "block" or
"hide" his orignial DNS, LOL! He's a script kiddie.
The original "Blaster", I believe came from the Near East and they have not
yet tracked down the source of it yet.
Now, I agree with what you've said. The BRLug is doing what it can to get
Linux into Louisiana libraries. Why not also "add" schools to the project?
Take the idea to the "BESSIE" board(Board of Elementay and Seconday
Education -- BESE). Start the kids out as early as possible teaching them
Offering Linux as an "alternative" to the buggy, over-priced M$ will not
only help lower schools budgets, but will help students as well. Teaching
staff and teachers linux just might open some job opportunities for some of
Just me 2¢,
