"It's news to us"

CNN has spent at least the past hour talking about the "Zotob" PC worm, giving it the full "CNN Breaking News" treatment as if it were a hurricane, earthquake or assassination. Why is this, you ask?

Because all of CNN's computers are down.

From what I can tell -- and I might be wrong -- it's not causing that much of a problem elsewhere. But since CNN forgot to upgrade its software, it must be major, major news...

UPDATE: On the other hand, this entry took about 20 minutes to finish posting after I clicked "save"...

UPDATE UPDATE: ...but only the usual second when I clicked "save" just now.
