'You might have deleted the entire contents of a server by accident or wiped out three months' worth of government agency data without a reliable backup on hand. You may have pulled a youthful prank that cut off Net access for thousands of your employer's customers. You could have deliberately shared your log-ons with everyone else in the company in order to make a point or unplugged network servers willy-nilly, just to see what would happen,' Tynan writes. 'Some names have been changed to protect the guilty. Don't laugh. One day, you may find yourself in eerily similar circumstances.'"

Compute' -- I forget which."
