GICC reference below. My personal feeling is that too many people made a fast buck on cheap labor-Y2k was just one more excuse. Now it' coming home. At least the Canadians have the sense to come out and say we all messed up. Louie baby, they got into Canada through US privatization- don't you get it yet? No such thing as free lunch, Fun Boy.

now this: http://www.theregister.co.uk/ Sunday reports. Posted 28/03/2000 12:14pm by Linda Harrison Watch out! There's a Cyberterrorist about London police are warning banks to look out for cyber terrorists when recruiting staff.
Anarchist sympathisers may try to infiltrate companies and sabotage computer systems to help the anti-City protests expected in May, a senior crime prevention officer said yesterday.

But in case these cyber-saboteurs have become more CV-savvy, it may be as well to develop your own techniques to pinpoint a likely candidate. The Register welcomes any tips on how to spot a likely lord or lady of misrule.
